A lot of things happened over the course of last 365 days. The biggest thing was, I completed my Engineering in June 2017. That means I am now a FULL-TIME Internet Marketer/Blogger.

Anyways, let me talk about a few highlights.

Firstly, about the articles posted on iftiSEO.

As usual, this year again, I didn’t publish as many articles as I should. However, I managed to write some in-depth guides that helped my readers a lot.

The guides are a complete A-Z of things, and I recommend everyone to read them.

Events I attended in 2017

With iftiSEO I was able to become a media partner for some great events around the world. I was a media partner for Affiliate World Asia, but I couldn’t attend it. However, I did attend some events and did a lot of networking.

BlogX 2017

The first event I attended was BlogX, it was on 11th Feb 2017 in New Delhi.

I and my partner Karan was a speaker out there. I am not that much into Speaking at events but Manmeet is a good friend of mine and I couldn’t say no to him.

Anyways, my Session was the last session of the event and it was amazing to see people waiting for it.

I delivered a session on “The Smart Art of SEO and Link Building”, it really went great according to the feedback from the audience.

Anyways that was BlogX.

The Next Event was PTI Meetup 2

PTIMeetup 2

PTI is a secret community group that I run Facebook. The group has seen people starting from 0 to $10000 a month. Recently, we started doing some meetups of PTI.

The next day after BlogX was PTIMeetup.

Siddharth Bagga and Tarun Gautam: Top CPA Marketers from India  

In PTIMeetup, my main focus was to deliver as much practical knowledge as possible. And with the help of many of my friends, we were able to pull off an amazing event.

India Affiliate Summit 2017

Another event that I attended later in the year was India Affiliate Summit.

It was a good event considering the fact that there were many affiliate networks and companies to network with.

Roundtable Indore 2017

And the last event I attended was RoundTable 2017 in Indore.

Amazing event with a limited audience. I literally learned a lot at this event. Kudos to Manmeet Pal Singh for organizing it.

So these were the events I attended, this year, I will be attending more events with the sole purpose of learning and networking with like-minded people.

Migrated my Blog to PowerUpHosting

This year, I also faced an issue with DigitalOcean Hosting. So I decided to migrate iftiSEO to PowerUpHosting which is run by Udit Goenka, a very good friend of mine.

So far, I am extremely happy with them. I’ve had no major issues and their support team is always online to help me with any sort of technical difficulties.

A thumbs up to Udit and his team.

The Start of iftiCrypto

I recently started another blog called iftiCrypto.com.

In 2017, I started investing in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. I am still in a learning phase but I have enough knowledge now to help you get started with it.

On this blog, you can find simple How-to guides that will answer your doubts.

Targets for 2018

I don’t see the need for posting monetary targets here.

Rather, here are some important targets that I want to achieve for this blog.

  • To Focus more on Social Media

No matter how good your blog is, you still have to be active on social media. And that’s what my focus has been.

I am focusing a lot on my Facebook Account, keeping it active and posting interesting stuff every alternate day. I cannot even tell how much it can help you.

Just start posting something useful on social media and you will see the results yourself.

Recently I started posting #iftiSEOPowerTips on my facebook account. Under this hashtag, I share 10 Useful tips related to blogging, Marketing or even networking.

Each post is able to get at least 200 likes and a dozen shares. Totally worth it!!!

“In 2018, Focus on Your Personal Facebook Profile more than your Facebook Page.”

  • Publish More In-Depth Guides on iftiSEO
  • Publish at least 50 Articles on iftiCrypto.
  • More Focus on Email Marketing.
  • Help 5 or more People to reach $100 a day.
  • Flip/Sell 3 Domains at $$$$.
  • Start becoming more Active on Twitter
  • Start Working on a Web Tool, App or a Plugin.
  • Install SSL on iftiSEO and revamp the design of the blog completely.

There are many things that I am working on, but I have listed only those targets that are connected with iftiSEO in one way or another.

Anyways, that’s it, guys.

That was 4 years of iftiSEO. I hope you guys keep giving the same love and support towards this blog. 🙂 

As usual, here’s a song for this year’s Birthday Post. Do turn on the captions for lyrics. 😉
