Happy Birthday OnlineRockersHub
Follow OnlineRockersHub on social media:

Life goes like an express train. Yes, it’s the first birthday of OnlineRockersHub. 1 year passed, but still, it looks like yesterday, when I created this website. A lot of love and support from readers. Thank you all for this.

This one year, it was fun blogging. At the same time, I learned a lot, developed a lot of skills. And most important, I explored the power of the internet. On this day, I decided to have a look back the journey.

Look back at the journey:

I will put down the happenings in a sequence so that you can easily visualize what happened, and how this website has grown.

April 9, 2016:

This is an important day. Before this day, I was writing blog posts in a blogger blog. Here is the subdomain www.onlinerockerswix.blogspot.in. The blog is still alive. You can check it out.

I decided to buy a domain. I was actually looking for the domain name “OnlineRockers.com”. But, unfortunately, the domain was already taken. After thinking for a long time, something struck my thought.

What was that?

OnlineRockersHub

You are now thinking, why Hub?

Hub is actually a place where people connect.

That’s right. But, I heard Hub somewhere else.

It’s Hubspot 🙂

Back to the past. Then, I checked if the domain name is already taken. I was lucky, I guess. The domain name was available.

Then I checked out for the domain registrars which accept Payza.Payza was the payment processor, where I was having my funds, at that time.

I searched the Internet and found Gossimer. They were accepting Payza. Quickly purchased the domain.

And then, I checked out few tutorials on the internet. And then, I installed the domain to my Blogger blog.

And that’s how OnlineRockersHub evolved.

May 22, 2016:

I was constantly coming across WordPress software and it’s powerful features. I found a lot of experts on the internet saying that “ All professional websites / serious blogs should be created at WordPress

I explored a lot. And this is the time when ShoutMeLoud helped me a lot. I browsed a lot of tutorials from ShoutMeLoud and it’s youtube channel. It was so useful.

Then I searched over the internet again and again. I came across the web hosting sites like Hostgator and Bluehost. But, I found that they were costly and doesn’t suit my budget.

Accidentally I came across Namecheap. I read a lot of reviews about Namecheap. Found them satisfactory. I decided to purchase the hosting package.

Then I purchased the cheapest hosting package available at Namecheap.

The next part was fun.

To be frank, I actually had no idea how to use a hosting package.

Luckily, their live chat system was so helpful.

They helped me setup everything. And finally, I moved OnlineRockersHub from Blogger to WordPress.

May 24, 2016:

This was something unexpected. That morning, when I opened my mobile, I got a mail from Adsense account.

My Adsense account was approved for my Blogger site.

Wait… I moved my site from Blogger to WordPress.

What should I do now?

I went all over the internet and came to know that I should upgrade my AdSense account.

June 12, 2016:

I was rejected a few times. I read a lot of blog posts about AdSense approval. Followed those steps.

And this morning, I received a mail from Adsense.

Your AdSense account has been fully approved.

Google Adsense account fully approved

But wait.

Where’s the ad?

The ad was blank. It was clear white. I waited for few hours for the ad to display.

But, it did not.

June 17, 2016:

I started searching why ads did not appear. Created threads in a lot of forums. A lot of experts came down to help me. But ultimately their reply was. Sorry..

But, ultimately I came to know this term. “403 Forbidden error

That’s the error Adsense ads displayed.

I tried a lot of methods to solve it. But still, the ad did not appear.

But, I was confident that these ads will appear one day.

In the meantime, I decided to do something interesting. I created a guest post at ShoutMeLoud about this Adsense 403 Forbidden error, with the methods I tried till now.

Luckily, Harsh found it was a real problem. He accepted the blog post and published it on this day.

June 18, 2016:

The ads still did not appear. I decided to try out other ways to income. The next one in my eyes was eBook.

I wrote my first eBook and published it on this day.

WordPress vs Blogger - Which one is the Best?

Take a look at my eBook. Don’t worry. It is a free one.

WordPress vs Blogger – Which one is the best ?

June 29, 2016:

After so much of struggles, this was the day, when my ads appeared.

And I went on the conversation with Adsense officer.He stated that the ads did not appear because of a bug in Adsense servers.

Kill the bug …

August 19, 2016:

My first eBook was rejected at Amazon Kindle. So, I decided that somehow, I should publish an eBook at Amazon kindle.

I started writing seriously. I sat down for around 12 – 15 hours. Finished the eBook.

Ultimate Guide to driving Traffic to your website without spending a Penny

It was this day, Amazon Kindle accepted my eBook.

Ultimate GuideTo Traffic to your Website without spending a penny

I priced that for 9.99$. Looks so simple right? But there was a lot of technical difficulties inside.

What so ever, I published I first eBook at Amazon Kindle.

November 2016:

November is my favorite month.

I decided to do something interesting this month. Decided to gift my recent eBook to someone.

Searched the internet for Giveaway tools. Found the right one, Gleam.

I ran an eBook Giveaway during November and announced the result in the first week of December.

Don’t forget to check, who was the lucky winner.

December 2016:

December was a disaster. Not in a mood to explain that.

January 26, 2016:

I was so impressed with ShoutMeLoud Bloggers Forum. I decided to create one for OnlineRockersHub readers.

I browsed a lot about creating a forum. Explored a lot of plugins. Made a good looking logo design.

QuestionUs forum - The official forum of OnlineRockersHub logo

And I launched QuestionUs on this day. Take a look at this forum.

February 15, 2017:

This was a real shock to me.

I made an affiliate sale.

Could you believe this?

I too couldn’t.

But, some good fellow has used my link and purchased a hosting package at Namecheap worth of 9.84$. They paid me a commission of 2.95$

Felt like I achieved something big.

And back to present day,

OnlineRockersHub made its landmark on the internet with its 1st birthday. When I compared myself, with one year ago, I am surprised with the skills I learned.One year ago, I did not even think, that I would learn all these.

On this day, I have to thank all those resources which helped me.

And not but not the least, I wanna thank you for the love and support over the year.

And just to celebrate this, I am giving a 50% off on eBooks available at OnlineRockersHub. Use the coupon code: HBDORH. The coupon will be valid until April 16, 2017.

Thanks for the love and support ORH readers
