One year ago, my father asked me, the young internet entrepreneur, “What’s a blog?” I paused for minute. I had heard the term before … but I couldn’t answer him. I honestly didn’t know. Little did I know that so many people would soon tap into a new type of gold mine and make money with blogs.
Savvy business people have realized that blogs can be an excellent way to promote themselves, their business, or make easy money. The most popular way that this is done is through Google Adsense. Using this, bloggers are able to sell advertising off of their blog and collect cash just for keeping a blog. Those with very successful blogs are raking in the cash simply off of their AdSense ads. It is very easy and free to start doing this, and many have cashed in, and in big ways. Some blog hosts have even allowed their users to ad AdSense using the same account, making it even easier to make money with get inspired.
Search engines tend to like blogs and give them a good rating, making it easier for people to find. For this reason, blogs have become the form, which are currently the names of the biggest names on the Internet. Companies are still moving to blog, or add your own templates for existing sites.
Websites are generally more static than blogs. What this means is that their content doesn’t get changed very frequently. Content is static with few changes made over time. Whereas with blogs, which are noted for being active, have their content changing frequently. It is for this reason that they are so popular with search engines like Google.
Google AdSense. I told you in the beginning that making money online blogs does not require any recruiting or selling. By simply placing a 2 line code on your blog or website you have the potential to earn daily. This code rotates a series of ads. Every time on of your website visitors clicks on that ad you earn a commission. Google has millions of advertisers so there will never be a shortage of ads to circulate. You can earn hundreds of dollars per day from individuals clicking on the ads on your website. No sale is required in order to receive payment from Google. You can receive .5 or .10 cents per click to up to $50 or even $60 per click depending on the product.
OSpecialize. The best way to make use of the search engine optimisation of blogs is to narrow your focus. Rather than developing a hodgepodge of ideas and themes, write with one theme in mind. It will help ensure that people looking for information on your topic will always find you through a search engine.
Traditional safelists are becoming somewhat threadbare. Isn’t it amazing how quickly business changes on the ‘Net, and isn’t it weird how safelist people ‘spin their wheels’ by posting, posting, posting, when most messages go to ‘junk’ in-boxes to be automatically deleted. You can send out a whole lot of messages with safelists, but only a tiny percentage are likely to be actually read by a real person. Maybe that’s why email traffic is threatening to choke the Internet. Because of this, many canny web business people have now shifted to Blogs as their main tool for promotion. Many others, like me – who continue to believe that safelists have a role (when properly used) -have made Blogs a valuable extra facility in their marketing toolboxl.
Don’t let anyone try to tell you that the bottom is falling out of web marketing. The awesome growth and popularity of Blogs shows that they could not be more wrong.
