I have been researching quite a bit lately because I’d really like to find some new sites to read. I found today a few and here’s an important about how to make money blogging. I’ve always liked blogging and lately I’ve been on this kick for finding out more and more about how to start a blog. I’m already pretty good at it but honestly I’ve really regretted starting my blog here on WordPress.com. If I had started it on Blogger I could have made some money with Adsense and obviously that would have been nice.
Anyway check that site out and then come back and tell me what you think. It’s a pretty solid one.
A site that I read quite a bit posted an interesting article not too long ago about how to make money with Adsense. I liked it because honestly, making money that way has always appealed to me. You can make great money with a blog if you know how to get the right kind of traffic for Adsense.
I’ve been working on that quite a bit lately and honestly kind of regret not putting this blog up somewhere that would work well with Adsense. As most of you know, WordPress.com doesn’t allow us to use it at all here so we pretty much can only make money with affiliate programs. Oh well, I guess I’ll see what I can do to get moved over before too long.
Earlier this week I saw in the SERPs a very interesting site that was a single page site that ranks for fast food coupons. I found it quite interesting that the owner didn’t upgrade the site to a WordPress blog because that act alone would probably help the site to get a top ranking for the keyword.
Using a blog would actually help this owner to help a lot more people that were looking for fast food coupons. Obviously, if you are looking for food coupons of any time, you’re trying to save some money. Actually providing a few coupon offers that came out would help this owner to help more people and that would probably certainly help the site to get linked to more often.
Food coupons is getting to be huge business in this economy. Right now people are looking to save money because in all honesty it’s getting harder to increase income.
I would highly recommend to this blog owner to upgrade the site to a blog so that continuous offers can be posted as they come out. It appears from the current ranking that the site is already making a little money but that could be increased significantly if the owner provided some legit savings to all the people that are looking for food coupons.
Unique Article Wizard is a very exciting tool that allows you to get almost unlimited backlinks for your blog and if you want your blog to rank well in Google and other search engines, you need to get as many links as possible.
It definitely takes work to use Unique Article Wizard because you have to write articles that will be submitted in exchange for links. These articles go out to thousands of sites – some of which will publish your article and therefore link back to you.
One of the best features about Unique Article Wizard is that it allows you to link to virtually any page. Sometimes it’s difficult to get links to post pages when you’re a blogger and this tool takes care of that problem.
For those of you that want to learn to use SEO, I would highly recommend taking a look at this tool. If you’re not ranked first in Google it’s probably because of lack of backlinks. Before I made this purchase I took a look at quite a few different reviews of Unique Article Wizard – the most interesting was one that my mentor Court wrote: Unique Article Wizard Review. He’s used it to make some great money over the last few months.
In order to start a good blog, you have to prepare yourself mentally. The worst thing you could do is start a blog without the proper preparation.
You have to have a long term plan and goal to make money with a blog.
Prepare to put in literally thousands of hours before you start to make a significant income with your blog.
Prepare, prepare, prepare.
Before you get started with your new, potential blog, I would recommend getting some good keyword research done. This will allow you to gauge the potential size of your market.
To do this, I would recommend using the Google Adwords Keyword Tool. It now shows search volume which can really mean a lot – should be very very accurate and just started doing this a few days ago.
Here’s the key – find a market for which you can identify at least 3,000,000 total searches per month. This is total keyword volume across all keyword sets that you could potentially use. If your market isn’t that large, it probably isn’t the greatest market for a true blog.
Seriously, one of the dumbest things you could ever do would be to start a blog without doing the proper research. If you want your blog to fail, make sure to follow these steps:
- Do absolutely no keyword/market research before you start.
- Do not buy your own domain name.
- Don’t consider branding as an important success factor.
Getting started with blogging isn’t an over night process. If you want to do well, you will want to do plenty of market research beforehand. That said, you absolutely can not be afraid to fail. If your first blog is successful, you will be part of a huge minority.
Fail, re-work, re-work, fail some more, re-work, and then fail some more and you will likely find success. Persistence is everything.
