Make Money Online Blogging I

This is the first article about Make Money Online with Blogging.

I want to start this article about what blogging is all about and how to make money with it along the way. Some close friends of mine emailed me asking for some help in blogging. Due to them, I thought of making this series. Thanks Mish and Paul for inspiring me.

What is a blog?
Blog is an abbreviation of the two terms "web" and "log". Weblog as it may seem if combined but they truncated the "we" and thus, "blog" is created.

What is blogging?
Blogging is some sort of a personal page in which a blogger can share his personal thoughts about a topic with fellow bloggers in the blogosphere.

How do we make money online with blogs?
There are several ways to make money online with blogs. As for now, let's settle for the most common which is advertisements and affiliates. For starters, the commonly used advertising company is Google Adsense. I'll talk about affiliates on the next articles to come.

What is Google Adsense and how do earn money from it?
Google Adsense is the Google's solution to expand advertising monetization program for websites which is released on June 18,2003. It inserts filtered ads related to your niche in your website depending on the location that you selected. Bloggers earn money from it whenever someone clicked the ads.

More on Google Adsense
There are two methods of earning money in blogging with Google Adsense. These are the pay-per-click and pay-per-thousand. Pay-per-click pays you for every click through an ad has receives while pay-per-thousand pays you when you display the ads on your blog for 1000 times. Displaying the ads on a site is called "ads impression". Therefore pay-per-thousand pertains to pay-per-thousand(impressions).


Step 1 - Choose Your Niche
We are making blogs for money therefore, find a topic that you like and seemingly have potentials to make money with. Niche pertains to the topic that you want your site to focus on since it's the topic in which you will make money online.

Step 2 - Choose Your Keywords
Keywords is the most essential tool in making your site in the top of the list. Keywords are the terms searched by an individual to look for something that they like. Look at the keyword typed in the example below.
A blog's main goal is to get to the top of the list of Google Search Engine to get more targeted traffic and thus, more income probability. The more visitors that enter your site, the higher the probability your ads will be clicked. In a broader concept, more possible consumers in which you can sell things with are visiting your site. These people visiting your site because they found you on the first 3 pages of Google are considered targeted consumers since they are looking for something that they want in Google Search Engine and found out that you are on the top of the list therefore, they are expecting that you can offer something to them in regards to the thing they are looking for.

Words to ponder: Google Search Engine
The picture mentioned above is where we search and the program handling the "searching job" is the Search Engine.

Step 3 - Count Your Competitors
This one is no-brainer. You don't want to compete to more than 1 million persons in your niche. Search for a desired keyword in the Google search bar such as "Make Money Online" and the result page will show how many competitors you would be taking on if you continue on that niche.

Step 4 - Count The Advertisers
If we are to make a niche blog, we would want to make sure that there are advertisements for that particular niche. We prefer related ads since it's more probable to be clicked by a person who stumbled on your site looking for something related in your niche.

Google Adsense Formula
Income from ads = ads clicked X no. of people

Step 5 - Make A Blog
All this preparation would be in vain if you don't make a blog. Just do it! Worry about the page factors later on. We learn best from our experiences. There are several web host companies to host your site but if you prefer the best next thing! which is being free, here are some of the platforms that you may choose from. Blogger, Wordpress, Typepad.

Closing Tip for Make Money Online with Blogging Part I article.
If your keyword is so populated by competitors, change to profitable niche or be more specific with your niche. If you are looking for tips for "Hamster Care", you may find yourself competing with more than a million people since the topic is so broad. Choose your niche specifically. You may want to change the keywords to "Hamster Care in Summer Seasons" then sell something summer stuffs specifically for hamsters.

Importance of Backlinks

What are backlinks?
Backlinks are links that are directed towards your site. Some site may link towards you to let their readers view what you have to say about a related topic. Need an example? Look at the right side of my site there is column there named featured sites.

Why is it important?
It has become more valuable because this is one of the off-page factors that affects your page rank. A page rank is something like a website's value. When you search for a common term in Google.com, websites that has high page ranking are shown on the top of the list. People of the internet browse the first 3 pages of the search page. If you are ranked 1000th, there's a little chance that you will get noticed. Remember that our goal is to be ranked 1st! ^o^ Anyways, there are a lot of advantages of a high ranking page even if you're not 1st...yet.

How do we earn backlinks?
  1. Post regularly unique quality posts. ( what makes a post unique is your personal opinions on a certain topic or niche )
  2. Submit articles to free article directories and leave your link on it. (If someone would like to post your article on their site, they are required to not to edit it therefore your backlink stays on that article on his site )
  3. Invite the owner of the site related to yours to exchange links with you. ( persuade him if you must ^o^)
  4. Leave your site's address to the comment boxes of other sites. (might not work since some sites have no_follow scripts...well take your chances ^o^)
  5. Participate on forums and leave your link as a signature. ( make it look like a simple signature not a website campaign )
  6. Tell your friends and families that if ever they will make a site/blog, put your link on theirs. ( if they don't know how to make one, you do it then make them update it! ^o^ )
  7. Whenever you're having a conversation with someone, cite as frequently as you can your site address. ( hehe)
Reminder: Choose your link partners carefully

Who you want to exchange links with:
  1. Sites related to your niche / preferred topic.
  2. Sites that are updated regularly. ( you don't want to link with an abandoned site )
  3. Site of your friends and families.
  4. Sites that you want to be friends with. ( hmm.. hidden agenda hehe)

Who not to link with:
  1. Sites with duplicate content. ( you can state your personal opinion on an article, make a summary out of it )
  2. Site with hidden text. ( usually text in color white to be invisible to the naked eye )
  3. Sites with bad reputation.
Here are some of the useful info, hope it helps you well. Goodluck with your back-linking strategy. ^o^ Nathan here! don't forget to subscribe to my rss and emails.

What is Page Rank

Page Rank
The PageRank Value indicates the value of your web page, when you have a higher PageRank, your web page will more visible and more visited by the search engines, This will help you to get more traffic from the search engines, directly to your web site.

The weblog is one of the best platforms that is considered as a search engine friendly, This will help you to build PageRank by buying blog links in other high PageRank Blogs, plus there are thousands of new weblogs created everyday, The blogsphere has become one of the biggest communities online, Having your place there will help you to Build Buzz about your business, Products or services.

Advantages of High Ranking Page Rank

Many would go all out just to boost their page rank and why is it so? Here are some advantages of having a high rated page rank.

Advertiser's "apple of the eye"
Advertisers are willing to pay you that "extra cash" just to get their name embedded on your website. They will use banner or request for a link or what so ever they may think of.

Authority of a certain topic
They consider the site as an authority. This is the mind set commonly of people, "Page Rank means Best Quality content". They consider the site first among the rest that is in the same category therefore it recieves more traffic.

The webmaster is considered as a celebrity. Others pay you for a review or simply just a comment about something related to your niche since page rank is a powerful offline tool as well.

Next post will tackle about ways to earn money from high page rank.

Best PTC Sites

Earn money just from viewing advertisements.
The PTC pay-to-click sites offer members friendly-user interface where they can click for a certain ad and remain on the website in which the ads reffered to on a given amount of time. About 20 to 30 seconds of your time actually, multiplied by the numbers of ads viewed. Below is a list of the PTC sites that I use.

  1. TuiBux - $0.01 per click
  2. QualityBux - $0.02 per click
  3. Project-Bux - $0.01 per click
  4. NeoBux - $0.02 per click
  5. Bux.to - $0.01 per click

It doesn't pay much but it's a good way to earn money online ^-^

Question: How do i recieve payments?
Answer: Recieve payment with Paypal or AlertPay

Question: How much do i need to signup for a PTC site?
Answer: FREE! Macharap ang libre ^-^

Question: Do i need to link a bank account to Paypal and AlertPay?
Answer: Not actually, you can use the credits to purchase stuffs online.

Question: What if I want to withdraw my Paypal and AlertPay credits to cash?
Answer: That's the time you are required to link a bank account.

Question: Anymore questions? ^o^
