Do you know that you
can make money online through blogging?
What is Blogging?
(a contraction of the words web log) is a discussion or
informational site published on the World
Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically
displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first).
What you need is blog
(google blog) and an adsense account.
Go to www.blogger.com to open an account with your
gmail account (www.gmail.com), then write
content on what you know of what you like (your passion) or family matter (don’t
just build up content, let it make sense) on the blog for at least a week.
To make money from
blogging you need to build traffic to your blog. In blogging there is no food
for a lazy man. Here are my tips for making money blogging.
1) Blog about an area
you are vast in. i.e. your blog should tap from your knowledge and experience,
something that you can do without much effort. Blogging about a familiar topic
will also prevent you from copying other people.
2.) Focus your blog
on a theme. i.e. your blog must be targeted to a specific area. Do not start an
any-thing-goes blog. You should be able to describe your blog in one sentence.
3.) Know your
keywords. Since you have focused your blogging to a theme, find keywords that
are relevant to the theme of your blog and write articles that make use of such
keywords. In case you do not know, keywords are terms people use when they
search on search engines.
4.) Every Page must
have a purpose and focus on one, two or three keywords. When blogging an
article, ask yourself, If I am looking for information contained in this
article, what search terms would I have used. You can also ask your friends,
which keywords they would have used. Then write your article in such a way as
to include those keywords in your article with out disrupting the flow or
5.) Make sure you
register your blog in search engines using webmaster tools. I recommend Google,
Yahoo, and Bing. Submit your sitemap via the webmaster tools.
6.) Open Twitter and
Facebook page for your Blog.
7.) Register with
Blog Directories Like Technorati and Afrigator.
8.) In the first 6
months post something new once everyday or at least 5 times a week. Thereafter,
blogging three times a week will be okay, but blogging a fresh post daily is
ideal. Post quality, keyword-rich and targeted contents. Search engines love
content. Give them good content today and they will come back for more
tomorrow. The more they love your blog, the more traffic you get.
9.) Make a success of
one blog before opening another one. Focus all your effort on one blog. Having
lots of blogs all in their infancy stage is very demanding and you may not be
able cope. Note that one blog can make more money than ten blogs. What actually
count is traffic, not the number of blogs.
10.) Register with
Adsense or other advertising network, copy and paste the Ad units on your blog.
11.) If you use
Adsense to monetize, never click on your Adsense Ads or violate any of its
terms and conditions. I know people whose Adsense accounts have been closed
with the income they earned for violating its terms. Although you can still be
kicked out for doing nothing. Just try your best.
12.) Do not copy
other people's work. Copying other people's work is very easy and may even
favour you in the short term, but in the long run your bubble will eventually
burst. It also deprive you the opportunity of being an authority or a guru in
what you do. Sooner than later everyone will know you are a cheat.
13.) Analyse your
site using Google webmaster and Google Analytics tool.
14.) Read, Read,
Read. There are lots of information about blogging, SEO, social media, Adsense,
Ad placement, etc on the web search Google with any of those keywords to read
15.) And so on.
Making money from
blogging is all about traffic new bloggers should focus on building traffic and
less on making money. Build traffic to your blog and money will follow.
Building traffic takes time, but with hardwork, persistence and the passion for
what you do, you will eventually succeed. Most of the steps provided above are
all aimed at building traffic.
