2) Since how much time you are Blogging? What is the reason behind your beginning?
I'm in to blogging field from more than 2.5 years. Actually i started my first blog many years ago when i was doing my schooling. But I’m serious about it from last 2 years. There is no specific reason behind my entry to blogging, it happened accidentally without my knowledge.

3) As there are many Tech blogs in the World, How you are maintaining Geek Dashboard to stay standing in the competition?
I will try to keep my blog fresh with latest and unique articles and tutorials. I mostly write for readers but not for bots. Social Media interaction is helping me to still stand in the competition.

I do guest posting, blog commenting and forum posting during early days of my blog. Once settled, i purely concentrated on On-Page SEO with proper heading tags and images. I'm making use of YouTube, Facebook, Google+ etc to drive small amount of traffic to my site.

7) According to you, Blogger should concentrate on maintaining rankings and traffic?
If he/she is passionate about blogging, then he/she will keep writing stuff which will drive traffic automatically. Yes, one should keep an eye on their ranking and traffic using some tools. This will give them a clear sketch about their do’s and don’ts

8) Which is the best and worst movement of your Blogging journey?
They are many such things. Best thing is when i published my first post and I still remember the day when i got my first visit from Search Engines. Worst part of my blogging life is the early days of my engineering college. I rarely find time to update the blog, but now I’m doing great and perfectly managing both my college and blogging life.

I'm planning to make Geek Dashboard as popular I can. Next one year, i will concentrate on YouTube and even planning to start giving seminars to fellow students to make them aware of this awesome blogging field and let them know about how they can make money while studying. There is no idea of starting a firm for now.

10) Please share some latest content marketing and SEO tips with our readers :
