Vikram Brahma is a Digitalpreneur, Author, Blogger, Writer, & YouTuber. He loves to write content & spend time working from home.
I started my digital marketing career by blogging. Due to blogging, I learned many other things like basic SEO, blog designing, how to use Mailchimp (email marketing) and content writing skills, etc.
I personally feel blogging can be one good source of making money. It takes a lot of time and effort to become a successful blogger. But it is a learnable skill.
Today, we are going to see a short comparison between Hindi and English blogging. These comparisons can be applied to any other regional language. We will see which one is more profitable. Some advantages and drawbacks of each of them. Blogging is a marathon and not a hundred meters race.
Advantages Of English Blogging
There are three major benefits to English blogging.
If you will start an English blog then you can have the entire world as your audience. You can reach millions and millions. I know a few bloggers from India and they are getting readers from around the world.
This is the interesting thing about blogging and when someone from other countries reads your work then you get some amazing feelings.
Now, if you want to make money through blogging then there are many ways. Two of the most common ways are Google Adsense and Affiliate Marketing.
If you will start an English blog and if you will follow all required steps then you will easily get Adsense and affiliate marketing programs approvals. And everyone starts a blog in the hope of making money someday.
More Chances Of Earning
Once you will become an authority blog then your earnings will skyrocket. You will be making money in many ways. Some ways are - google adsense, affiliate marketing, sponsorship, speaking engagement, guest speaker, etc.
As they say, there is no limit as to how much you can earn. I know a few bloggers who are making over $10,000 per month. When you start blogging money shouldn’t be the criteria. You should think about how you can deliver great informative content to your audience.
Disadvantages Of English Blogging
Let’s understand the two main disadvantages.
If you are thinking to start a new blog today then remember there will be tough competition. In the case of English blogs, there is so much content out there. There will be hardly any topic for which you cannot find any content in English. And this makes life a little difficult for blogging in the English language.
No Gain Without Proper Knowlege
It is not that you cannot become a successful blogger. But the road is hard and if you will not learn the right knowledge then you will fail. Just making a simple website doesn’t give you any guarantee.
You have to learn things like advanced SEO, content writing, email marketing, blog designing, affiliate marketing, etc. So, the more knowledge you gain and implement higher your chances for you to become successful.
Advantages Of Hindi Blogging
Till now, we saw the pros and cons of English blogging, now let’s see some benefits of Hindi blogging.
Easy To Rank
Many bloggers have observed that it is a little easy to rank well written Hindi articles as a comparison to English articles. It has been observed that in India Google is giving more preferences to Hindi and other regional languages. So, with little dedication and less hard work, it is easy to rank Hindi articles.
It is also observed that Google is inviting many Hindi bloggers to their programs. They are sharing many information with them. Through such programs, we came to know that currently there is only 0.10% of the content is available in Hindi. There have been 94% year on year growth in Hindi consuming audience.
Disadvantages Of Hindi Blogging
Now, let’s understand some disadvantages of Hindi blogging.
Although there was a time when Google Adsense was not allowed in Hindi blogs. Today there are no such restrictions. But in the case of affiliate marketing, the majority of Hindi blogs are deprived of such approvals. Even if they get sponsorship then are paid less.
Restricted Area Cum Limited Audience
Except for English, there is no other major language that has a global audience. So, whether you make a blog in Japanese, Korean, Hindi, German, or Urdu they have limited reach and audience. And many of them cannot be used to promote affiliate links.
I hope you have understood some major comparisons between Hindi and English blogging. It is important to note that these points will apply to any other regional languages. The same case will happen with other foreign languages too. But definitely, there is a huge scope for growth. I being a blogger knows the power of Hindi blogging in India. There is no doubt that there is a huge scoop of opportunities out there.
In India, people have started consuming content in their local languages so it will better if you can tap that ever-growing market and niche fast. If you know Tamil or Bengali, start writing in Tamil or Bengali, make videos in the same languages and grow your YouTube channel, writing business, etc.

Thank you, Chitra ji, for your comments. Yes, you are right about the language part. We have to definitely see our command over the language. Content will always remain the king. You are always welcome.

Thank you, Liz. Yes, over the year Google is giving a lot of preference to the local languages. In our country, nowadays many big brands are opening their website in local languages to suit the local audience.
Yes, this is also important to note - things regarding different spelling like in acknowledgment/acknowledgement. Thanks for sharing your opinion, my friend.

This is a very interesting comparison of the two languages for blogging. Competition seems to be a major disadvantage with English. There are also regional differences in its application. American English has some different spelling to UK English.
