An Introduction to Blogging As an Internet Income Opportunity

Publicado  6.27.2008

By Ailen Ebojele

There are over 14 million blogs in existence today with about 80,000 blogs coming into existence yesterday. Among the figure for new blogs of yesterday would likely be two of my new blogs that I floated yesterday. Like me and a lot of internet marketers and others seeking to make money online, blogging is an effective way to promote ideas, information, talk about your passion and make money.

Yes, you can make money from blogs if you do it right. Believe it or not some people actually gross six digit internet incomes from blogs. Please do not ask me if I belong to that class because I do not. However many others like me make a satisfactory steadily growing income from operating a string of blogs. This blog post is to introduce new bloggers and would be bloggers into the general concept of blogging as means to making money on the net.

Blogging was originally created to be an online diary allowing owners to post their views and opinions on certain topics and areas. In time the fad caught on and a lot of people especially celebrities started to keep blogs. Blogs could be on any topic and the owner has full control on the design, layout and content of his/her blog.

Because of their fresh regular content on blogs search engine spiders visit them regularly and index them high. People have seen this as an opportunity to create optimized blogs that attract a large volume of traffic. The commercialism of blogs involves using your high traffic blog to generate internet income. Using programs like Google AdSense you can have contextual ads placed on your website by Google. These ads are automatically chosen to be related to keywords placed on your site. You get paid a certain fee for any of the ads clicked. The more traffic the more possible clicks and earnings.

You can also use your blogs to advertise your products or other people's products that you are marketing as an affiliate. Once you can generate steady internet traffic you blog can become a powerful advertising and income generation tool for you. At this point I believe the right question should now be; is blogging for you? Watch out for future post!

Best wishes.

10 Steps to a Money Making Blog


By Terry Philpott

While some people blog as a form of expression others do it to earn an income. If your interest is to operate a money making blog it would be wise to develop good habits from the start. Here are 10 blogging tips on how to make your experience easier and more profitable.

1. Blog Name - Whatever the purpose, reason, or theme of your blog be sure the title reflects that. Do a keyword search if necessary and utilize keywords that best describe what the blog is about.

2. Blog Theme - It's helpful here to focus on something you're either good at or interested in. If you're good at it you'll have no problem posting information on it. If you're interested in it than you simply do your research and post what you've learned.

3. Post Regularly - By posting regularly you'll keep both your readers and the search engines coming back. If possible and depending how serious you are, daily postings, even multiple times daily, is best! Don't let your blog die by not posting on a regular basis.

4. Content - Be sure your post are interesting and useful to your readers. If you are so incline adding a little entertainment value is also helpful. You'll also want to make sure your content contains the keywords for your topic so that it will be indexed by the search engines. Keep it natural and conversational. Remember you are talking with your readers and not the search engines. As a rule target between 1% and 3 % keyword density.

5. Length of Posts - Try to keep your content brief ( 500 words or less) however if you've chosen a topic that can't be covered in so few words than make a series of postings out of it such as part 1, part 2, part 3 etc.

6. Utilize Audio/Visual Aids - Both the readers and the search engines will love this.

7. Utilize Back Links - Where applicable use reference material with the back links. The content will enrich your blog as long as it is used correctly according to the relevancy of the topic you incorporate it into.

8. Befriend Other Bloggers - By visiting and posting relevant comments at other blogs (and leaving a back link to your blog) you'll find this action will be reciprocated creating more traffic for both blogs. Article sharing between blogs also boost not only traffic but a stronger sense of community with fellow bloggers.

9. Monetize Your Blog - Sign up at Google for AdSense. Utilize your blogging real estate to earn extra money. Don't overdo it though since too many ads can distract and turn away your visitors.

10. Encourage Feedback - Giver your visitors every opportunity to leave comments. This encourages active involvement and can produce constructive feedback for you.

Although there is much more than what was covered here today to really optimize your blogging efforts these 10 tips will put you on the right track to a money making blog.

You Hate Writing Articles For Your Blog - Now What?


By Anne Hilton

If you have a blog on the internet, it is going to need articles. That's the reality. Articles or content is what will provide the information to your visitors so they will want to return time and time again. Articles serve other purposes for your blog/site too.

The undeniable benefit of articles is they can elevate your blog ranking, based on the keywords and keyword phrases you choose as relevant to your theme and product or services. And content on it's own will drive traffic to your site.

Articles and your content overall create the trust and relationship between you and your visitors or customers. When readers like your articles they are apt to recommend your site to their friends, family and peers generating more traffic for you. And you will achieve larger sales if your traffic has confidence in you. Your product and/or services are going to be more likely to sell when your visitors believe you are knowledgeable and know what you're talking about.

O.k., enough. We know we need content. The problem is there are a lot of people who hate writing articles. Many blog owners would rather spend their time doing just about anything besides writing articles. So if you are not well-healed enough to hire your own staff of writers, and you can't plagiarize or copy other articles, what do you do?

One thing you can do is get free articles. You read right, you can get free articles and a good place to look for them is in the public domain. With public domain articles you can do whatever you want with them, and you won't get in any trouble for plagiarism or copyright infringement. Public domain articles are free for you to use. You can put them on your blog and even put your name on them. You edit and change them too.

There is one downside to public domain articles though. Since they are free, some other blog owners are going to have them, more than likely. Since your blog should be as original as possible, this may be an issue. You may want to tweak the articles to make them more unique.

An often recommended method to get articles is to allow other sites with a similar theme to yours (competitor) submit articles to your site. The inherent problem with this is they would have to be allowed to put their link on the article, and this can take your reader right from your blog to theirs, deflecting your traffic if your site topic is similar enough. However, if they are selling a product that compliments yours without jeopardizing your sales, then it may be an option.

Another viable way to get articles is to hire an article writer. There are a ton of writers available for this, and their prices are surprisingly reasonable. The writer will not only write you a totally original article, he or she can insert the keywords you need, and that people are searching for.

So the bottom line is - you will need articles for content on your blog (especially the front page) but as it turns out, you don't necessarily have to write them yourself.

Are you looking for a way to make great money on the internet? Here is everything you need to get started with your new blog:


5 Ways to Gain More Blog Readers


By Chester Alan Tagudin

There are many ways to gain readers to your blog but what I will share to you in this article are the best ways I used in my blogs and these ways are also recommended by other professional bloggers.

5 Ways to Gain More Blog Readers:

1. Detailed Blog Title

The title of your blog is the one being displayed on search engine once being search so your blog title must be clear for search engine crawlers. Most importantly, it must be clear to readers, try not to use acronyms with your title. A title like "A Piece of Idea" is much better than just "APOI".

2. Contents must be originally yours

Your ideas may be the same from other professional blogger or perhaps you have just read it from a blog but if you wanted to rewrite it for yourself, it is much better if you write it in your own words. Remember that bloggers are also readers and once they noticed that your introduction is just the same from what they have read, they will surely not read the rest of the post.

3. Use Search Engine Friendly URLs (Permalinks)

One way to gain traffic is to be enlisted in search engine results. If you have read some SEO tips, it is said that most search engine or perhaps all search engine crawl permalinks (post1.html) faster than query stringed urls (index.php?p=1). If you are using wordpress, I would recommend that you change your URL settings.

4. Enlist blog to free web directories.

One way of getting a higher pagerank is being listed by top ranked websites. And the more high ranked sites that links to your blog, the higher the pagerank we get for your blog. To do this, you should submit your blog to hundreds of free web directories available.

5. Submit post to social bookmarking sites

Another way of increasing traffic is to submit new post to social bookmarking sites like technorati or del.icio.us. You can submit post automatically using various paid wordpress plugins and other subscriptions. However, there are also free tools provided in web that can help you submit your post automatically to social bookmarking sites.

Affiliate Marketing Info - 6 Easy Steps to Turbo Charge Your Blog

Publicado  6.02.2008

By Will Yap

Web log or blog is the current buzz in the internet today. Everyone from the age of 8 to 80 is blogging nowadays. If you are an internet marketer, you can utilize your blog to generate online income. However, to have a money making blog require a certain skill. This article will share 6 easy steps to turbo charge your blog.

  1. Locate a unique niche. Before you start blogging, find something you are passionate about. Updating your content will be much easier if you enjoy what you write about. The main thing here is to stay up to date about your chosen topic.
  2. Develop laser focus. When you've found your niche, make sure your writing time is focused on that particular topic. If you loose your focus, you will start to loose your blog readers. Attract your readers with an eye catching headline and make sure you provide relevant content for your readers.
  3. Promote your work. When you've posted a blog, make sure people know about it. You don't want to maintain a blog where no one can find it or no one is interested in it. Promote your new posting with an email alert or broadcast. You can also market your blog by submitting it to blog directories.
  4. Inject humour into your blog. As a blogger, it is always a good idea to include humour into your work. This will make your blog entertaining and easy to read. Humour can also helps to bridge the gap between a reader and the writer.
  5. A Blog is not enough, build a web site. Some people are not familiar with a blog layout. These people when they land on your site may get confused. Make your main page as a summary of all the sections on your site. Don't just have a blog section, you can include an article section, video section etc.
  6. Be ready for change. The internet is always changing and reinventing itself. Do not fear change. When there is change, there is opportunity. Always siege the opportunity before it disappears.

Apply the six steps above to boost your blogging result. When use correctly, a blog can be a useful tool to drive large targeted traffic to your web site.

What Makes A Blog Work?


By Saichons Sannoks

A survey published last fall by Forrester's Charlene Li indicates that "24% of Gen Yers read blogs, which is twice as often as the 12% of Gen Xers (ages 27-40) and three times the 7% of Young Boomers (ages 41-50) that read blogs." What makes blogs so compelling?

It's not hard to understand. We live in a sound-bite era. Over the past two decades, people have increasingly turned away from long books and in-depth writing toward short, action-oriented pieces. Books such as Who Moved My Cheese, that are written at a high-school level or lower, are wildly popular. Television led the way by nurturing a generation that reads little and watches video a lot. Hence the popularity of YouTube and magazines such as Discover, BusinessWeek, Fortune, and Fast Company. They have made the short article almost a requirement. Only a handful of publications with small circulations such as The Atlantic or The New Yorker offer readers in-depth articles longer than a few thousand words. Don't get me wrong, here. I am not complaining (well, maybe a little), I'm just describing what is a reality.

Given this, the Forrester survey findings are not surprising. Gen Y and the younger portion of Gen X are the prime target audience for blogs. And, when they are well written, blogs are a powerful way of reaching younger employees, candidates, and fellow recruiters.

Our industry has a lot of great blogs that are, again not surprisingly, written by Gen X or Gen Y recruiters.

RecruitingBlogs.com recently published the results of its annual readers' ratings of recruitment blogs, sponsored by ZoomInfo. Here are the winners of that contest in 10 categories, and I urge you to take a look at each one of them. They all follow the rules for an effective blog that I outline below.

1. Overall Recruiting: Six Degrees From Dave

2. Recruiting Blogosphere: Recruiting Animal

3. Third-Party Recruiting: Hiring Revolution

4. Best Recruiting Technology: I, Donato

5. Job Hunting: Wired & Hired

6. Corporate Recruiting: WirelessJobs.com

7. Sourcing/Research: CyberSleuthing

8. Group: Xtra Cheezhead

9. Recruiting Industry: Six Degrees From Dave

10. HR: Gautam Ghosh

Effective blogs are tuned to their readership in many ways, including their tone, style, and even their look and feel. But the following four critical elements have to be in place for a blog to gain the traction that it needs to get a high level of consistent readership.

Short and Fun

First of all, each posting must be short. Entries longer than 500 words are not going to be read, probably not even skimmed, by the average reader. The best entries are most likely 200-250 words and contain lots of white space and breaks. Once in a while, a longer post can be effective if the writer is telling a story about something exciting or has the ability to maintain some level of suspense. But even then it may be better to break the story over a few days to bring readers back. Pictures and short videos are also useful. Jim Stroud, a recruiter at Microsoft, publishes a fun blog filled with humor and videos that exemplify what I am talking about.


Blogs gain a great deal of power when the writer is a real person. Heather Hamilton at Microsoft pioneered the idea of writing naturally and honestly. Good blogs are not overly edited or sanitized by the corporate PR department. They may have mistakes or reveal personal facts about the writer that lead the reader to feeling some identity with him or her

Here is a great example from a recent post by HeatherLeig : "Marketing plus potty humor." "If you don't appreciate potty humor or clever marketing, don't watch this. And, can I tell you how proud I am that this was referred to me by my mother? Yeah, sometimes moms rock, even though I am sure they prefer to remain anonymous (and, right now, she is thanking her lucky stars she has a different last name than mine)."

Story-Based Tell a story. We are all more likely to become engaged when there is a personal connection, some incident that arouses interest and hooks us into continuing to read. Here's an example from Bob Sutton, Stanford professor and author of the best-selling book The No Asshole Rule.. As I read this, I want to find out what he said and what happens in the end.

Here's an example from Bob Sutton:

"I was listening to a great show on the other day on Fresh Air, where Terry Gross interviewed Bob Sullivan, the author of Gotcha Capitalism. I started getting quite agitated by the interview, as Sullivan talked about all the ways that credit card companies, hotels, and especially, cell phone companies 'get us' with hidden charges and related sleazy practices (listen to it here)." We all tell stories, relate past incidents, and build relationships around shared experiences. The same applies in writing a blog.


Many blogs gain authenticity simply from their personal nature. We all tend to believe people who have a face, a personality, and are, to some degree, known to us. But, on the other hand, it is also useful to link to other blogs, websites, people who reinforce the posted message. If you look at the example above from Bob Sutton, you can see the links to the NPR show and to the book itself on Amazon.com. Really good blogs use lots of links and associations to add depth and credibility. By doing this, the author builds trust. Dave Mendoza, in his award-winning Six Degrees from Dave blog, illustrates all of these points. He uses video very effectively, links widely, uses humor, and introduces personal information in a way that makes him a real person. Writing a blog is not hard, but it requires understanding these basics. It also requires the author to be engaged, have fun, and reflect his excitement to the readership.
