Congrats!
Any advice on website building, blog like posts or a stronger content?

@StartFromZero
There's too much for 1 post
I will answer broadlike for SEO, because I don't use paid ads
Always start with users & their objective/s
  • Who is your target customer (demographics)?
  • What are they trying to do (intent)?
Answer those 2 questions first
Then comes the "how"
  • How do you make them visit your content?
You need to answer their question/s
Give as much relevant information as possible
But make sure to use the correct content format
  • What type of content ranks on Google?
You need to know if it's an evergreen page, blog post, video, image gallery, rich snippet
Now you know some important things
  1. You have the customer profile
  2. You understand their intent
  3. You choose a traffic method (SEO)
  4. You chose a content type
Finally, look at the top 10 competitors (for your keyword)
Make a list of all the things they include in content
Make sure you include everything on your list
But write your own content, don't copy & paste

All that's left is monitor your rankings
Keep improving the content with minor tweaks
Eventually, if you have done everything correctly ..
(by that I mean you follow the guidelines)
.. you will start to see impressions and then clicks and then commission

Of course nobody is forcing you to use SEO or Google as a traffic source
It's your choice

What would niche be best to build a blogging website right now?

I mean, what's a "blogging website"?

Don't know your target audience, suggest that you identify your target audience
More you know about them the more target can be your content
Find out who your content exists for, by identifying anything you can
  1. Country
  2. State
  3. City
  4. Nationality
  5. Language
  6. Sex
  7. Age
  8. Marital status
  9. Number of children
  10. Employment status
  11. Education level
  12. Salary
  13. Owner/renter
  14. Political affiliation
  15. Religious affiliation
  16. Disabilities
  17. Device type (and model)
  18. Operating system (and version)
  19. Internet Service Provider
  20. Browser
Once you have visitors try to find out about them (unintrusively)
Make sure you do it legally
There are many ways to do this

As for niche you can choose literally anything with enough demand (traffic)
Only you know how much cash you need
Work backwards from what you need, and follow a specific plan

You don't buy any backlinks or you don't do any guest blogging and so?

Correct, no paid backlinks or guest blogs
You don't need to
Just create amazing content
Then get indexed
Your 1st visitors send Google data via CruX report and Google Analytics
If its consistently better than competitors
Your page ranks higher

I'm not sure why, but creating the best answer is almost never the 1st item in SEO checklists - but it should be

But most of my content isn't even ranked and has not appeared in google search. So I need backlinks, don't I?

It's really important to understand how the Google algorithm works, really important
Most people skip this because it's boring (well, not for me)
1st I recommend to red this --> developers.google.com/search/docs/basics/how-search-works
The 3 stages you should understand are crawling, indexing and serving
  1. Crawling --> Google crawls the web look for new or updated content
  2. Indexing --> Google analyzes the content and indexes in database
  3. Serving --> Google serves the highest quality results to search users
To understand each phase in more detail I recommend to read this --> developers.google.com/search/docs/beginner/how-search-works

Crawling
You can tell Google about your new or updated content (without a single link) by following these steps
  1. Set up Google Analytics
  2. Set up Google Search Console
  3. Connect Google Analytics to your website
  4. Connect Google Analytics to Google Search Console (optional, helps)
  5. Submit your sitemap (.xml file/s) in Google Search Console
Indexing
In order to get into the Google index you need to take every possible step that helps Google understand your content, this is not limited to page titles, text content, meta titles, meta descriptions, images, videos, internal and external links, but to understand all main steps I recommend you do these things
  1. Create SEO checklist from the Google Webmaster Guidelines
  2. Use an SEO analysis tool or plug-in on your CMS
Serving
Many web pages are indexed, but only a very small percentage ever get regular traffic, because in order for Google to serve your content in search engine results pages you have to provide the best answer to the users questions, and the bar for success is more difficult than ever, however you can do some additional things to improve your chances of getting traffic
  1. Make your website mobile friendly
  2. Make your website load within 3 seconds
  3. Keep your page up to date
  4. Use a GEO domain extension
  5. Use a keyword domain name
  6. Ignore what Google says about AMP, don't use AMP as it will destroy your webpage
There are also some useful videos about Google algorithm

Remember that there is no luck involved in SEO, it's a computer algorithm, so nobody can say SEO doesn't work, only people with poor content that doesn't answer the question say this, SEO does work if you take the time to understand the rules and follow them consistently until your content gets used

If all of this headache for you, then just use ads
