2.) To get traffic from these companies your site will need to be found with popular keywords like “make money online,” “celebrity news,” etc..
3.) To get your keywords indexed you will need to create original content embedded with keywords that represent what your blog is about.

In the next part of this series I will explain how Google determines if your site is relevant, the object being to get on the TOP 2 Pages of search…
