Focus on Do Follow

With the spirit of how to make money online I have decided to provide something special in this article… Instead of talking about programs like project payday or Me2Everyone, I want to discuss something far more important. Search engine optimization is a term that is thrown around left and right but its interesting that nobody really tackles the heart of the matter or at least from what I’ve read breaks it down to the very simplest definition of SEO or how to get to the top of those Google search engines!

I’ve been guilty myself of beating around the bush in regards to backlinks and how to get to the top of Google and I want to make it up to all my loyal readers who have been wondering what I’ve been up to the past few days…

Man its really hard to run an internet marketing empire and the list of tasks is becoming more and more daunting as the days go by… Living the internet lifestyle has me working 16 hr days but enough about me…

This article is supposed to be about you and what I can contribute to making your job easier, making your life better, and getting you some money in that bank account that’s starting to look like the aftermath of the circuit city bankruptcy liquidation sale!

What are Backlinks?

Anchor text links are things that point to various websites and tell Google that your site is important. Newsflash, they are only valuable on sites that offer Do-Follow (what that means is that the site has to remove the standard NoFollow link typical on Wordpress blogs…)

I have read a million articles about search engine optimization and professional internet marketers giving advice about how to get to the top of Google’s precious search engine ranking place index… What I have realized is that its not as much about what you write (although you do want to incorporate your target keywords into your article titles, headers, body and everywhere else you can think of…)

It is about who you know and more importantly, who is linking back to you using your targeted anchor text which in my case would be how to make money online.

I’ve written a million articles and until I started collecting valuable anchor text backlinks I really wasn’t able to generate much traffic. Now that the backlinks are coming in left and right my site is ballooning and putting me in a position where I can negotiate regarding link exchanges, advertising inquiries etc..

What is DoFollow?

DoFollow is basically internet code (the language of geeks), it is in reality the absence of dreaded NoFollow commands in a website or webpage’s html or php script… I’m sorry to bore you with techno babble, basically you are looking for as much DoFollow link luv as possible if you want to get to the top of Google and make money online!

Where can I find Do-Follow Sites?

That is a great question and also my gift to you if you have happened to make it this far and don’t have a splitting headache yet…

Keep in mind that these do follow resources are not to be abused and are offered as a supplement to other do follow resources you will find at your fingertips…

Try not to spam these generous do-follow blogs that have so willingly offered you the ability to increase your page rank and search engine rankings for your target keywords.

DoFollow Social Networks

These are social networks that offer do follow links… Basically you will sign up for a page write a short post about your website or blog using their system and network with other people on the sites to comment on their articles and make friends… Drop relevant backlinks and try not to be spammy!

Yahoo 360




Do Follow Blog Sites

The following are DoFollow free blog sites. You can make a blog here to help promote your other blogs and websites… If you create some good site relevant content and build links for these pages you will eventually have a huge do follow resource you can use to pull other sites and blogs that you own up in the rankings!








Do Follow Article Social Networks

Use these services to promote your individual articles. Keep in mind that people submit tons of articles to these sites everyday so try to be original with your titles and descriptions… The more friendly and natural you are with your pitch the better!






DoFollow Article Directories

This is a fantastic way to gain quality one way anchor text links… Write articles that are similar to the ones you have on your blog or website and submit them to these directories with a link back to your original articles using anchor text that applies… An example of anchor text that applies to this article might be Do Follow Resources…



Idea Marketers

Article Dashboard Directory

Easy Articles


Do Follow Social Portals

Use these social portals to create lenses and pages that relate to articles on your blogs and websites, then link to specific articles and your index page using text anchor links and obtain quality backlinks for these pages because they may end up becoming your make money online niche resources.




Do Follow Social Bookmarking Websites

Use these websites to bookmark your articles to gain extra one way do follow links and credit. If you bookmark the articles using different titles and keywords that are related but different i.e. variations on spelling and terms, you will start to rank for all sorts of keywords!







Personally I think you should always use SocialMarker first if you want to save some time and effort! It is a free service that lets you bookmark at multiple do follow social bookmarking sites at once!

The time and effort you spend creating powerful do follow links will directly affect your search rankings for your target keywords so I recommend that you start doing as much of this activity as possible. Spend half your time creating new content and the other half finding creative ways to link to your articles and website using anchor text one way links on various do follow websites and services…

Believe me, this is what the professional internet marketers do and there is a reason why some people are still searching for how to make money online and these guys are actually making money online from targeted natural search traffic.

If you are a subscriber to this blog, I greatly appreciate your support and will try my best to continue to provide valuable resources and information that helps you on the road to riches… I’m always looking for networking partners and currently have a group of people I’ve been working with regarding one way links, if you would like to be part of that group please let me know!

Aweber Review

The Only Aweber Review Worth Reading!

This Aweber Review may give you some ideas of how to make money online with an auto responder. If you want to learn how to make money online, you might want to consider an auto responder.

I haven’t implemented an email address list in Blog Basics for Beginners yet because I like to let my blogs and websites mature a little and start to receive a large quantity of natural search engine traffic before I pull out the big guns.

Generally starting a newsletter list is something that every internet marketer and affiliate program user has to do if they want to really earn money online. A blog is a great way to interact with subscribers but it does leave something to be desired… You may not want to share every little secret and tip with someone who is merely passing through as a visitor looking to swipe some key knowledge and use it to compete with you!

I have several tips and tricks that I don’t let out of the bag right away, some of them I let loose in ebooks and newsletters for my loyal readers and subscribers…

There are many different services out there that offer auto responders but I’ve found that most of them leave something to be desired... Aweber is one of the only services that has everything you need to be an effective affiliate marketer using email newsletters as your primary method of engagement.

There are free email services available but you will find that most of them are missing something crucial and do not offer the massive list of options that Aweber does…

One thing that Aweber is great for is getting thru spam filters! If you try it out you will see that your connect rate is way better than alternate services like Zookoda etc… Another thing that is great is the ability to customize individual campaigns and tailor them to multiple pages and websites.

Because the services charges based on subscribers rather than other factors the ability to build a massive email list and network is really limitless. One of the best things about the Aweber auto responder service is that you can subscribe at there base price of only $19/month which is actually a fantastic price when you compare their service to the competition.

Some of the coolest features include :

The ability to engage subscribers in follow up messages (very important)
The ability to use as an auto responder in broadcast mode
The ability to use in blog broadcast mode.

Basically blog broadcast mode lets you send out information to your email subscribers and it will tag along in your RSS feed as well.

This is great if you want to give both your loyal email subscribers and feedburner readers some useful content at the same time.

Bulk emails are a great way to go when you are looking for some good results… The bigger your business email list is the better! Think about it, you can recommend a new review of a product and drive traffic to your site or recommend an affiliate product that you’re currently using right in an email with a link straight to the product!

I hope this has helped shed some light on how to make money online with Aweber auto responders. If you didn’t find this Aweber review helpful, let me know if there is something I can add in my next exploration of the Aweber service.

How Do I Track My Website – StatCounter Review

Make Money Online by Watching the Numbers!

Have you ever wanted to read a StatCounter review? Well, your dream just came true! There are many tools that an internet marketer uses in their mission to make money online. When you are just starting out one of the major questions you may end up asking yourself is: How do I track my website’s statistics?

If you’re like me then you have asked yourself… How do I track multiple websites?

The best solution I’ve found so far is a service called StatCounter! Relax… take a deep breath, their basic service is FREE.

Here comes the part where you sigh and say wow! I thought he was trying to sell me something? Not in this article but watch out for the next one!

It’s not convenient to have multiple Google Analytics screens open at once but regardless, Google Analytics is a fantastic service and you should take the time to use it on all of your sites if possible.

The great thing about the StatCounter service is that you can attach multiple websites and accounts simply by pasting some code into your website. Man does this thing save me time!

StatCounter is one of the best statistics service available… It gives you the ability to view bar charts showing daily, weekly and monthly analysis. Another nice thing about the service is that you don’t have to post a visible counter on your site.

Knowing your visitors and what they came for is crucial to developing marketing campaigns and growing your business. Recently, I noticed a few hits for keywords that I wasn’t really trying to target… When I researched this in more detail, I found out that the traffic was coming from search engine ranking places that were far from the first and second pages of results.

I was able to determine that there was a huge demand for this product and steadily I have been squeezing in keywords that are helping me rank better for the product in the hopes that someday I will reach the first page where the traffic maelstrom awaits.

The point is that if I wasn’t paying attention to my statistics, that keyword could have completely slipped under the radar and I would have never known about my new and very profitable source of additional traffic.

StatCounter offers features that many competitors are not able to provide including charts and graphics for visual analysis, visitor page loads, returning visitors and IP addresses. There are some things I like to keep to myself but in the effort of sharing I decided to bite the bullet and let this cat out of the bag.

Another thing that is great about the service is that it shows you the recent keyword terms that were searched for to reach your site! It also gives you the ability to monitor exit links which are very important for monitoring your marketing campaigns.

If you’re still trying to figure out how to make money online, watch those exit links buddy! Once you get traffic flowing into your site you still need to know what to do with it… Some people will set up Google Adsense or Adbrite text links, others will try to capitalize on reviews and affiliate products or people like me may try everything until they find the best solution!

The point being is that when someone comes to your site the only thing left for them to do after they have found or not found what they were looking for is leave. The exit points are what you need to watch closely because you can learn a lot about the behavior of your visitors. If you don’t find that many exit links and being clicked you will want to change the flow of your site so that they click on something you want them too… More importantly, you have to offer them something that’s more interesting than closing the window.

To make a long story short, making money online is just like making money offline… You need to review where you find success and expand upon it. Our failures are what make us successful so get StatCounter and watch the numbers.

You know those sites that offer free ipods, xboxs and PS3's? Well you were right, most of them are blowing smoke and aren't going to backup their promises however there are a few of them that actually will.

If you want to turn around, I don't blame you, but if you're interested and you want to see where this goes, by all means, keep reading!

How Many Different Ways Are There to Make Money With A Blog?

I want to apologize to the few people I’ve managed to pick up as subscribers this month for implementing so many monetization strategies at once. If you're tired of the make money online topic, I don't blame ya... The reason I have done this is not out of spite or adverse intent but rather in scientific experimentation. It's time to test the waters so to speak!

This blog is dedicated to teaching Blog Basics for Beginners but I will admit that sometimes I fall off track with other money making tactics. In the future I will try my best to write content and provide information that assists bloggers and webmasters in their goal to make money online via internet marketing and blogging.

Be aware that I will explore other avenues of making money online for the simple fact that eventually this site will receive targeted traffic for people looking to make money online, work from home, get paid for their opinions and intent of that nature.

It seems only fair to provide information to those people that can assist them in their goal as well. Not everyone has a talent for writing, some people would much rather sit around and complete surveys or tutor people via the web or watch advertisements for money.

To get back on track, there are a few things I had originally intended to discuss in this topic. Some of the current monetization strategies I am implementing on this page include:

1.) Google Adsense
2.) Kontera ContentLink
3.) Tradepub White Pages and Trade Magazines
4.) Various Affiliate Programs (Commission Junction, etc..)

Beyond the typical methods of making money online there are a lot of different start-ups that seem very interesting, one of them that I find really interesting is called Me2Everyone. Basically it's a virtual world organized like a co-op and each person that joins gets their own shares that they will eventually be able to trade on the open market.

Anyways, those are just a few of the ways you can make money online with your website. As this blog starts to receive more traffic I will most likely do some optimization and cut back several of the programs that don’t seem to be earning in an effort to provide my readers with a higher quality experience.

In regard to helping bloggers make money online, some basic questions to ask yourself, that I have found helpful when starting a new niche site include :

What do I want to write about?

What type of traffic would I like to receive?

How do I want to accommodate my visitors?

Is this site going to be strictly for monetary purposes or will I be using it as a hobby and writing about a topic I’m generally interested?

How will I plan to promote my blog or website?
Generally, if you write about things that interest you, I think that you will find that there is much more to say. Even though this site will address how to make money online, I also plan on touching on topics directly relating to blogging, internet marketing, search engine optimization, page rank, ways to get paid for your opinions etc…

If you write about something you love, why not earn money online while you’re at it? As long as we keep our readers best interest in mind, its alright to make a buck or two as a result. Generally, I think you will find that your readers don’t mind helping you out from time to time.

In regard to Google Adsense text links, hopefully your readers will be courteous and not click on things unless they have a true interest in the product or service offered. If they click on ads simply to help you out, Google will penalize you by possibly smart pricing your account. If you’re not familiar with the term smart pricing, that is when Google pays you a fraction of what you typically earn for an ad in an effort to provide the highest quality service for their advertisers.

Think about it, if you were an advertiser, would you really want to pay people for having their friends or loyal readers click on your ads for the sole purpose of making you money. Well, that’s how they feel also. Besides, ideally most of your traffic should come from search engines and it will as long as you focus on the basics of internet marketing like search engine optimization, backlink generation and fresh content. If you write quality articles directed towards your niche, there is a snowball effect that will take place, you will see that your target keywords will move steadily up in the search engine rankings and before you know it you will make money online.

If you’re not concerned with how to make money online and your just blogging for the sake of blogging that may work out even better. There are other benefits to having your own website or blog.

Why should I make a blog?

Having a blog will give you a place to share your ideas and opinions with the world. It will also provide you with traffic and people that may be interested in the same things that you’re interested in.

Ok, let’s address the original question and stop beating around the bush…

How Many Different Ways Are There to Make Money With Your Blog?

There are a million different ways! Be creative!

Get Paid to Complete Surveys – Surveys That Pay Money?

Find Paid Survey Websites

Because this site is dedicated to exploring how to make money online, I wanted to take some time and review the possibility of getting paid to complete surveys.

There are a million articles on this topic but the unfortunate reality is that it’s very hard to sift through the bull and find survey companies that actually pay up!

The problem with survey sites is that most of them are not legitimate and if people tell you that this is a great way to make money, they are probably lying.

After signing up for many of these programs, they will offer you a survey opportunity which you will gladly accept in an effort to make some fast cash but at the end of the survey they will pay you in points assuming that you actually finish the survey in the first place!

The fact of the matter is that there are survey companies out there that pay well and some even offer $50 or more to complete their surveys. The downside is these sites are few and far between.

In an effort to provide the most helpful information possible, after scouring the web I was able to come up with the following survey websites. Keep in mind that you will need to judge for yourself whether these are good programs but I have been told that they are legitimate:

Keep in mind that there are many sites that offer the get rich quick pitch and tell you that you can get paid to complete surveys when in reality they are just a scam.

Alot of people are looking for survey that pay cash but be careful!

You will need to use your best judgment when reviewing these sites for legitimacy. If a site asks you for personal financial information I would probably leave it alone. There are many ways to make money online but this is one way that I would advise against.

What is Adsense Smart Pricing?

Lose Money with Adsense Smart Pricing

Many people use Adsense to make money online with their blogs but very few actually know what goes on behind closed doors. One common thing that people should understand is that all Adsense publishers are not judged equally. In fact the quality of your site content and the avenues in which you obtain your traffic make a big difference. Generally the term used to describe the varying amounts you are paid for clicks is known as Adsense Ad Click Value Variations.

What is Adsense Smart Pricing?

Basically Smart Pricing is a tactic that Google uses to make their advertising clients happy. It is a way to prevent click-fraud and punish bloggers and sites that have unnatural click behavior. Generally Smart Pricing only applies to blogs and sites that have spammy content. Believe it or not, Google’s methods for detecting this factor are extremely advanced.

Smart Pricing is something that Google uses to determine how much you get paid per click for text or image ad and its based on a few different variables that have not been released to the public.

Here are a few things that may determine Smart Pricing :

1.) Number of impressions
2.) The age of the website
3.) The page rank of the site
4.) The niche value of a site (is it based upon a single topic or many topics?)
5.) The value of inbound links (how many relevant keyword links do you have?)
6.) The CTR factor (the percentage of traffic that clicks on an ad)

If you want to avoid being smart priced, try your best to wait for a few months before you put Adsense on your site. Also, make sure to have high quality content and frequently update your site. More keyword rich backlinks never hurt as well!

If you play by the rules you won’t have to worry about getting smart priced as the system seems to be pretty fair. If you want to experiment with smart pricing set up multiple Adsense accounts and place ads on brand new sites with a lot of social traffic, see what happens?

I hope this article addressed the question : What is Adsense Smart Pricing?

For more information about PPC advertisements and Adsense, please review my archives.

What is the Google Sandbox?

If earning money online is one of your goals and you expect to be successful via natural search engine traffic you might want to read this article.

If you’ve been following previous articles about SEO you’d probably realize that the topic is so vast you could continue to explore different facets of the subject until it’s raining cats and dogs.

Page rank is a very important issue when you are trying to establish credibility and get Google to start indexing and associating certain keyword phrases with your content. However if your site is brand new there is a possibility that its not gaining page rank and moving up in the SERP’s because it’s in the Google Sandbox…

History of the Google Sandbox

Although there is no solid evidence that the Google Sandbox actually exists, for the sake of this article please humor me and assume that it does…

People have been talking about the Google Sandbox all the way back to 2004.

The topic really became an interest for Internet Marketers and Bloggers around February of 2005 when Google decided to do a major update to their index.

The result of this update was staggering! People that ranked high for their target keyword ranked much lower, others that ranked low were moved towards the top. Up was down, down was up and it was a very confusing time.

The Theory Behind the Google Sandbox

The Google Sandbox theory refers to a method in which Google restrains and limits a website’s search engine ranking and keyword dominance for a certain amount of time.

After March of 2004, many sites experienced what many refer to as the Google Sandbox..

How Do I Get Out of the Google Sandbox?

It is unclear whether the Google Sandbox actually exists but assuming it does and assuming your site is in it, there’s no way it could be considered a boon for your natural search engine traffic.

It is assumed that the following factors that could affect your site could be :

1.) Time – Age of your Website

This is definitely a possibility and also a factor you can’t do much about except wait. After careful review this wouldn’t make much sense for a search engine like Google to penalize a site because of age when their ultimate goal is making sure you find what you are looking for.

2.) Quantity of Links Theory

This would make a lot of sense… Think about it, if a link from a relevant site has
a text anchor with your keyword, this would mean a lot in regard to credibility. The site is referring to you as the expert in that particular niche. Either way you will want a huge number of links so get to it!

3.) The Age of Inbound Links

This seems to be a valid possibility. Research has shown that if you don’t have enough quality inbound links within a year you may never make it out of the Google Sandbox.

I believe the third factor would have the most importance in regard to getting out of the sandbox. Try to create as much niche related fresh content as possible every week. Start building links everyday to strengthen your target keywords. Before you know it Google will not be able to deny your authority on a subject.

As long as you are in the sandbox you will never truly enjoy the benefits that come with a high search engine ranking. Also, don’t forget to have some fun while you’re playing in the sandbox!

Money Making Ideas - Text Link Ads Review

There are a million money making ideas, affiliate programs and advertising networks out there but only a few of them are actually worth considering.

One of the best sources of income for webmasters and bloggers is a company called Text-Link-Ads.

One of the best things about the program is it has equal value to the advertisers as it does to the publishers.

Most people are familiar with advertising PPC programs like Google Adwords, Adbrite, etc…

How Does Text-Link-Ads Work?

All you need to do to get started is go to their website and sign up as an advertiser or publisher. It will take a few days for them to verify your account and make sure you are applicable to participate in their publisher program. They will check your site for page ranking, traffic and other useful information in making their decision.

If you are accepted you can set up your account and decide if you would like to offer site-wide links or contextual links.

Their program is easy to integrate into your assuming you are currently using Blogger or WordPress.

After a link is sold on your website, you receive an email informing you that someone has made a purchase. You then have the option to have the revenue deposited into your Paypal account.

The great thing about the program is that they have a very reasonable payout system in which they split all revenue down the middle 50/50 with you. Hows that for money making ideas?

If you are interested in signing up for the program and want to know how much a link on your site would be worth, try their Link Worth Calculator.

I am both an advertiser and a publisher on their site and I have been very happy with the results on both ends. I highly recommend Text-Link-Ads.

How to Increase Google Page Rank | What is Link Juice?

Internet marketing can be a very effective way to make money online. The truth of the matter is that no matter how much marketing you do, if you don’t focus on SEO, you will be reliant on paid visitors from Google Adwords or another PPC advertiser as your primary source of traffic.

What could be better than paid traffic? I think we both know the answer to that one…

So what is a webmaster or blogger to do? Focus on your search engine optimization, increase your page rank and target your niche keywords!

At the end of the top if you don’t like spending hundreds and thousands of dollars annually on paid traffic and you’re not at the top of the SERP’s i.e. Search Engine Results Pages, you’re not going to be happy.

Internet marketing revolves around the numbers, variables that you want to consider include:

1.) Unique Visitors
2.) Organic Traffic
3.) Paid Traffic
4.) Conversion Rate

If you have a great conversion rate, maybe you don’t feel like natural traffic is worth the effort. Let’s say you spend $20 on a Google Adwords campaign and you make $25 in affiliate commissions from the resulting traffic… Obviously it’s turning a profit so you may as well keep doing it right?

Imagine if you added natural traffic into the mix as well, then you may be spending the same amount of money and making twice as much in commissions.

There are limitations to PPC campaigns; you need to bid on a particular keyword. It’s much better to diversify and obtain traffic from multiple sources, that way if one of your channels fizzles out you won’t have to fizzle out with it.

The two areas you will want to focus on are on-page search engine optimization and target keyword backlinks.

If you’re page is optimized better than your competitor’s for a targeted keyword and you have a higher quantity of authority niche related backlinks you will be able to beat them out on the SERP’s, it’s that easy…

Oh, yah, I just remembered it’s not that easy... That’s why you’re still here right?

What is Link Juice?

Link Juice is a term used to refer to the quality and strength of a given link. If the link has more pull, then it has more link juice…

Let’s discuss backlinks for a moment…
What are the two types of backlinks you can obtain?

1.) Two Way Backlinks

This is a link that connects from your site to another site. They link back to your site creating a two way link relationship. These can generally be obtained in link exchanges and through networking contacts. A word of advice… These are hardly worth anything as they are not given much weight in terms of Google authority. They’ve got weak link juice, got it??

2.) One Way Backlinks

This is a link that simply links from one website to another. Google considers this type of link to be a lot more important because of the law of self interest. Obviously the site linking to you considers you an appropriate reference and decided to give you credit out of the kindness of their heart.

Not really, but you get the point… Not all one way links are created equal. Some of them can be actually bad for you depending on their page rank and authority position. There are sites called link farms that you should stay away from at all costs, Google’s system is extremely advance and can recognize foul play.

Generally if you do participate in this type of behavior, Google will just ignore the links but in a worst case scenario you may actually take a hit in your rankings because of it.

All of this linking is valuable only if you know how to leverage the links themselves.

This is where the term Anchor Text comes into play. You will see major improvements in your SEO if your backlinks are contained in your target keywords.

The best type of one way link will be one from a reputable website i.e. government or otherwise discussing a topic that is in direct relation to your niche. The link will be contained in a paragraph using your target keyword. That would have some major link juice!

I hope you enjoyed this article about earning money online by harnessing the awesome power of link juice. More on search engine optimization strategies to come!

What is Internet Marketing? | Is Internet Marketing Blogging?

Sometimes I need to refresh myself on the difference between blogging and internet marketing. When you write an article for a blog about internet marketing, is it still considered blogging?

Most Bloggers Are Not Necessarily Internet Marketers

I think most people consider blogging to be a form of expression that is directly related to their personal life.

Wikipedia defines internet marketing or online marketing, as the marketing of products or services over the World Wide Web.

For the most part, the distinction between a blogger and an internet marketer is a bit fuzzy. The most obvious realization is that the average blogger probably doesn’t make that much money online whereas the business savvy internet marketing might make a fortune selling advertising and affiliate products.

Generally bloggers write about their experiences, their opinions, current events, and things that interest them.

Internet marketers tend to focus on subjects that will help them make money online like search engine optimization, affiliate reviews, and marketing techniques. They are focused on making money plain and simple.

Internet Marketers Are Notorious for Implementing Their Strategies with Blogs

The typical internet marketer spends half their time in the field writing and the other half researching, optimizing and obtaining inbound links.

Bloggers generally spend half their time writing and the other half of their time trying to get their peers to read their blogs.

To make a long story short just because you have a blog doesn’t necessarily mean you are marketing it correctly. If you are serious about your blog either way you will most likely need to acquire internet traffic to leverage your blog. Regardless of whether or not you want to earn money online with your blog, learning the basic principals of internet marketing will most likely prove to be very useful in the acquisition of internet traffic.

Earn Money Online Blogging

Earn Money Online

Lately my blog posts have been centered around how to earn money online. More specifically how to generate advertising revenue from free natural traffic generated by the top search engines i.e. Google, Yahoo and MSN.

One of the primary areas of focus in this persuit is search engine optimization.

Keep in mind, these strategies will help you in the long term but they probably won't teach you how to make money fast.

To just break down a few of the key factors in SEO, the two things you want to focus on in regard to SEO include :

1.) On Page SEO
2.) Off Page SEO

I will discuss these topics in future articles and try to provide enough insight so that you can increase your understanding of the topic and effectively leverage your knowledge of search engine optimization and finally answer the question of how you can use your blog more effectively to earn money online.

Bloggers - Get Paid For Your Opinions

Isn’t it funny that most people have jobs not because they want to work but because they need the money? Actually maybe it’s not funny, its just a fact of life right?


Blogging is one of the only ways to get paid for your opinions.

Lets look at the ways we can benefit from our opinions in regard to blogging.

Get Paid for Your Opinions

1.) You can write a review on your blog about something that you have tried and liked. Make sure to give the affiliate link to people so they can try it too. If they decide to follow your advice, you have helped them and yourself… Generally I find its best to recommend something that I like myself so I’m not left with affiliate remorse.

2.) You can write reviews about products and services that you didn’t like. Not only will you be providing the rest of us with a great service but you will be creating useful content that will eventually drive more traffic to your site.

3.) You can do paid reviews of products on your blog for companies like PayPerPost or Associated Content

The fact of the matter is that there are a million ways that you can get paid for your opinions. Why not take advantage of them?

SEO – Tips and Tricks to Get One Way Links!

There are generally two types of links:

1 Way Links
2 Way Links (These are sometimes referred to as Reciprocal Links)

Most people seem to think that they will have to pay for high quality one way links.

Why would I want to pay for a one way link?

Well, if the link is made using one of your targeted keywords and it is on a site that Google deems worthy of a high page rank index, you will have instant credibility! The more credibility you establish, the higher your page rank will be.

How can I get free one way links?

Now that is a great question! There are tons of places where you can get high quality one way links. One of the most common places that people obtain free one way links are in website and blog directories.

Directory submissions can be incredibly time consuming. But there are a few tricks you can implement to speed up the process. Keep in mind, the more one way links you have, the more resulting traffic you will receive and if your goal is to make money, this is what you need!

Tip # 1

Submit your blog to a directory ex. Open Directory Project, Search Sight etc…

Copy the entire submission i.e. website title, keywords, description into a notepad or document file.

Now you have a directory submission template that will work for future submissions saving you a ton of time!

Why re-invent the wheel right?

Tip #2

Focus your submissions on the following free directories first. These are directories that are highly regarded by Google!

The Top 5 Free Directories:

Open Directory Project
World Site Index
Web World
Search Sight

Tip #3

Find blog directories and submit your site to them in your niche categories. This will get you a lot more attention than a general directory would.


There are two ways to submit to directories –

1.) Manual Submission
2.) Automated Submission

I would seriously recommend that you consider taking the second route. This will free your time up to work on your greatest asset… Remember how to make money with blogs?

I’ll give you a hint… QUALITY CONTENT! And lots of it buddy…

There are a few ways you can go about automated submission… One of the most popular routes is to use a program called SEO Elite. This will get the job done but you may lose some points with Google due to the rapid pace at which it will submit your blog to directories…

My personal preference is a service called Directory Maximizer

I’ve used this service in the past with this blog as well as my other blogs and I’m always very happy with the results. One of the best benefits of Directory Maximizer vs the directory submission programs is that you have control over the speed of the submissions, hence Google will give you more credit.

I hope this article has given you a better perspective on one-way links. They are much better than the alternative... You could write content all day and if nobody knows about your site then nobody will read it right?

Blogging – 2 Unique Ways to Monetize Your Blog

After your blog is up and running, you have a large subscribe base and a solid amount of natural traffic coming in. The time will come when you want to consider ways to monetize your blog. Not only will your method’s be under consideration, you will be looking for the answer to the ultimate question.

“What is the best way to monetize my blog?”

This article may not have the answer to that question but it will explore 4 unique ways that you can monetize your blog…

1. Start a Raffle

People love contests! Why not give them an opportunity to participate in a paid contest? If you have loyal readers, they will most likely place a lot of weight in your recommendations right? Well what if you offered them the ability to win something that didn’t cost you anything but time… Possible prizes could include :

-Advertising Space on your Website or Blog
-Exclusive Access to a Special Make Money Online E-Book
-Two to Three Hours of Professional Blog Consultation

I think that this would be a fantastic example of link bait! In fact, I’m going to implement this idea on my site immediately…

2. Write Affiliate Reviews

Ok, maybe you’re going to say “Hey wait a minute, that’s not a unique way to monetize my blog!”

It amazes me how effective this strategy truly is… If you can find something of value that may possibly have affiliate value to one of your readers in a similar niche, why not write a review about it?

Don’t forget to include your referral link so you get credit!


Both of these strategies I could just as well keep to myself but that would defeat the purpose of my blog. The point is that we can share these strategies and experience growth together. Please drop me a comment and let me know what you think of these ideas! If you haven’t joined my feed yet, please do so and let me know via comment so I can join yours!

Make Money Online : Associated Content Review

Recently I came across a site called Associated Content. After doing my homework, the site seemed to be very legitimate, and also seems to have more potential when compared to PayPerPost. This article is dedicated to the review of Associated Content.

If you want to make money online, this company will pay you to publish creative works. Another benefit is that you have the option to offer exclusive or un-exclusive rights. This is great because it will give you the ability to write content on your blog and then submit it to them for payment as well!

At this point I have completed a few of their requested content offers and they paid via Paypal within a few days of submission!

One of the content submissions was a valentines day poem… Ok, definitely not within my typical niche but I like Shakespeare so what more is there to say right?

1.) 20 minutes writing the poem
2.) 2 minutes submitting the poem
3.) Received $8.00 via Paypal

Now it has me racking my brain about content I can dig out from one of my other blogs to submit… I’m going to take this site for a ride and see what type of results I can get…

Click here to go to their site and see for yourself!

It’s important to explore new marketing and monetization strategies… Why not try to double dip once in a while right?

SEO – 3 Tips for Search Engine Optimization

Most people know about search engine optimization a.k.a. SEO. Search engine optimization is referred to as most important factor in getting a decent page rank for a particular keyword.

This article will help you optimize your web pages. It will discuss tips and tricks you can use to increase your page rank by implementing SEO strategies.

1.) Make sure to link each of your pages via html

This is a simple concept, each of your sites pages should be linked via html and related to another page in your site. Google uses spiders to crawl the web and when it finds a link, it indexes the page for future exploration. Images and Flash solutions offer alternative to html links however they are not recognized by the search engines.

2.) Maximize Your Site’s Content

Generally, the more content your site has the better. After becoming indexed in the major search engines, Google will generally crawl your site frequently, examining your sitemap and content and making updates to your search results. The content you provide will be directly related to your search results via keywords, long tail keywords etc...

I have seen an exponential increase in web traffic due to my site’s content. There are several keywords I am currently targeting via content and I have seen significant improvements recently in my keyword search traffic because of the content that is on this site.

3.) Use Keywords and Long Tail Keywords

Most people don’t realize how important keywords actually are. If you want more web traffic target keywords in your article and place them in both your title text as well as the body of your articles. Make sure to litter the keywords at least three times in each article you write to maximize your effectiveness.

Article City

2.) Surf the Relevant Blogs

Regardless of your niche, quality content and great ideas are abundant in blogs of all shapes and sizes.

Anyways, the number of new contacts I made this week will drop your jaw.. I'm currently in the process of exchanging backlinks and I have gained new subscribers from surfing!

How To Make Money Blogging : 2 Different Approaches to Blogging

Blogging can be a very profitable business if you have the tools, dedication and knowledge to create and implement. There are several ways that people make money online with blogs and several different types of blogs that they make money with.

The following article will discuss two different approaches to blogging. Both of them can be quite profitable; however each approach will result in an entirely different blog and will require a different marketing campaign strategy as well.

1.) The Enterprise Blog

This blog is an example of an enterprise blog. It is my goal to educate the masses about internet marketing, search engine optimization and page rank strategies as much as it is to make a living from it. If you decide to create an enterprise blog, the key to success lies in delivering a large number of high quality articles, growing a significant readership base and focusing on ways to gain a huge share of web traffic.

An enterprise blog should be based on a broad niche which will give the writer the ability to touch on a ton of different topics that are interrelated.

In my opinion, the enterprise blog is the best route to take. Why not build on something that you have a passion for? Isn’t it better to make money while helping people at the same time? If your blog has quality content and articles that actually help your readers reach a goal, you are already on your way.

Some of the benefits in creating an enterprise blog include high traffic, loyal readership base, direct advertising opportunities and a brand name that requires less paid advertising then a typical blog. People gravitate towards your brand name and content, you’re products will practically sell themselves.

Please keep in mind that this blog will take a lot of time to build and maintain. There are shortcuts but it may take a while to find and implement them. Eventually you may decide to hire a copywriter to take over some of the content creation responsibilities… You may also decide to outsource some of your sales and marketing responsibilities as well.

2.) The Small Niche Blog – Affiliate or Advertising Purpose

This is an example of the enterprise blog with a twist; generally the small niche blog would be focused on generating affiliate or advertising revenue by focusing on a particular product or service. This is a very common route that many bloggers chose to take. The first thing you will want to do is find a niche that is very profitable in regard to affiliate and advertising revenue. Examples of sites like this include: Forex, Credit Cards, Car Loans, Vacations, Expensive Products i.e. Plasma TVs.

The key to success with this type of blog is to target desired keywords and provide content that matches with those keywords. The ultimate goal being that someone will search for the product or service, find your site, read your review and then click on one of your adsense links or affiliate product ads. The best way to do this is to create long tail keywords in your article titles. This will increase the chance you will be found in the search engines for a particular keyword.

These types of blogs are generally easy to set up and get going but may not be very profitable unless you either convert them into enterprise blogs or focus on creating hundreds of similar sites in different niches.


The two methods discussed in this article are just meant to help spark creativity in regard to making money from blogging. There are millions of other ways to make money from blogs and websites but hopefully this article has given you a few ideas to implement or consider in your search for a blogging strategy.

Internet Marketing – Blogger Vs. Domain

When creating a blog or website there are generally two options in regard to how you will need to set it up.

1.) Use a free hosted service.

An example of this would be sites like or Both of these companies offer a free sub-domain where you can host your own blog or website. They also offer turn-key installation so you won’t need to know much about the way websites work etc… You will walk through a simple setup and two minutes later you will be able to set up your first post.

This is a great way for the beginning blogger or website owner to start. It will give you a chance to become more familiar with html and also offer you an easy way to share your thoughts and research with the world.

2.) Purchase a Domain and Hosting

This will require a small investment but I think you will find that the advantages of taking this route vs. option one far outweigh the costs.

This article is dedicated to exploring and listing the advantages of hosting your blog or site on your own domain.

Credibility – Having your own domain will commend a certain amount of credibility in your field. Many people will judge your site by how it looks rather than by the valuable content that it may provide. Having your own domain name will be more aesthetically pleasing. Compare the following two domains :

Both of these sites have quality content but the first site has a URL that is easy to remember. If you had to make a choice between the two, which one would you prefer?

Security – Many people find security in a simple URL. Because of the high number of scams on the internet, generally shorter domain names are more trusted than those that are longer.

Ownership – I can’t stress this point enough. Even though sites like Blogger and WordPress have a commitment to keeping blogs online indefinitely, at the end of the day they are still in control of your sub-domain. They own your sub-domain! It’s hard to place a lot of confidence, time and effort into something that feels uncertain. Owning your own domain will give you a sense of security that many people find priceless.

SEO – Independent domains and sub-domains are treated differently by search engines. Although this fact is hard to prove, sites with their own domains are given priority over sites that are hosted on sub-domains. If you want traffic and your hoping to get this traffic from Google, Yahoo and MSN then having your site on it’s own domain definitely won’t hurt.

Ultimately the primary advantage is control. If you want to build something that is permanent and expandable, wouldn’t you also want to protect your investment?

If you do decide that you want to take control by purchasing and hosting your own domain, then you have made the same decision that I made a long time ago.

I’ve reviewed countless service providers and have come to the conclusion that the best way to do this is to purchase a domain name and hosting through a company called Bluehost. They will provide you with your own domain name free of charge and offer you their premium individual hosting service for only $6.95/month!

There are many options in regard to hosting but I know for a fact that Bluehost has the best price and customer service available. The combination is unbeatable!

Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like to discuss any of these topics further or have questions about web hosting, web development, how to set up your blog etc..

SEO – 4 Ways to Increase Your Page Rank

In previous articles we have spent significant time discussing page rank and SEO. In regard to page rank there are several things that affect your ranking. It’s possible to make improvements both internally and externally. I have found that the most important factor that affects page rank is backlinks.

The following list includes four methods you can use to obtain backlinks.

1. Reach out and try to negotiate or ask other webmasters in related fields to link to your website. This will be a difficult task but in many cases if approached the right way, site owners are sometimes willing to assist their fellow bloggers in this way.

2. Make sure to submit your site to indexes and directories. It’s very important to register with as many search directories as possible. Search engine directories provide high quality one-way backlinks that are sure to improve your page rank.

3. Register and participate in forums related to your topic of discussion. In most cases you will be able to add your backlink either in your signature or in the body of your post.

As an added bonus you will gain targeted traffic through the forums you participate in.

Keep in mind that these are people that are genuinely interested in your topic. They may become regulars and subscribe to your RSS feeds.

4. Submit your articles to free online publishers. I have discussed this in previous articles as well. There are several sites you can use to submit articles and drop your backlinks. Two of my favorite sites for this purpose include and

Lastly, if you use all these methods to increase your SEO and page rank, you will see results very quickly. Sometimes it may take longer than expected due to something called the Google Sandbox. I will explain the sandbox and describe its purpose in future articles so stay tuned!

Page Rank - 10 Links for Search Engine Optimization

In previous articles, I have discussed the importance of page rank and SEO i.e. Search Engine Optimization.

Obviously, SEO is very important to your page rank, the better your site is organized and indexed, the better the chances of you getting a high page rank. If you can't find yourself in the search engines, you don't have much of a chance to get a high ranking do you?

Keep in mind, you will only want to submit your site once to each search engine, if you submit more than once, there is a high probability it will penalize your SEO and page rank.

After your site becomes indexed, spiders will crawl it regularly looking for new content and updates. Try to keep your site fresh, add a few things every week if possible.

The following section will provide links to various search engines for submission.

I've provided two ways to submit your site to the search engines.

My new favorite option is DreamSubmit. They have a way to automatically submit your website to several search engines all at the same time. Their free choice is an excellent to get a ton of submissions in a manner of minutes! Please review the auto-submit options and use at your own discression :

Auto Submission :

Submit Express

Manual Submission :

Submit URL to Google
Submit URL to MSN Search
Submit URL to Yahoo Search
Submit URL to ExactSeek
Submit URL to Acoona
Submit URL to Scrub The Web

Several sites require you to manually submit, one of the most notable that requires manual submission is Yahoo Search. Make sure to manually submit to Yahoo Search because it is one of the top three indexes you will want to register with for optimum SEO and page rank.

Please let me know if you found this article helpful. If I forgot anything, please drop a comment and I will add it to the list.

Make Money Online – How Do I Obtain More Web Traffic?

Most people create their blog or website, start developing content and then sit back and ponder how to get more traffic and attention. The point is, you need web traffic, and we both know it.

The question is how? The following is a discussion about how to increase your web traffic, I will touch on both paid ways to improve traffic as well as ways that are completely free (suffice to say they will take a little time and effort).

Paid Options:

Option 1

If you have a great product or service that you’re promoting and a marketing budget to go with, you could consider running a paid internet marketing campaign. There’s no limit to how many visitors you can get to your site through a Google Adwords campaign, whether you need 1000 or 100000.

You can buy your traffic but it’s going to cost you a bundle. Unfortunately, the visitors that you purchase will stop coming as soon as you stop spending unless you have a very unique and profitable proposition for your traffic.

Option 2

I’ve discussed page rank several times on Blog Basics for Beginners. It all revolves around backlinks and search engine optimization. If you really want to get to the top quickly you could hire an expensive firm to conduct an SEO campaign for you. This unfortunately is incredibly expensive and may not reach your desired objectives.


Both of the paid options will cost you money and may not be as effective as you would like. Don’t be discouraged, I have a recommendation that will save you a lot of time and money. If I could offer you a way to get you website traffic, generate tons of backlinks and gain a search engine ranking above your competitors for free, would you be interested?

At this point you’re thinking, oh great, another shameless sales pitch. Hey hear me out, I’ve been using this trick for several of my blogs and it hasn’t cost me much, in fact its made me a ton in Adsense revenues and affiliate commissions.

One of the most important factors to page rank are relevant backlinks, the links need to be on sites that have a strong page rank and relevant content. The primary place to obtain these links are in Article Directories.

So, you will need to write a relevant article about a topic that relates to your blog or website. Secondly, you will need to submit this article to the Article Directories to be published.
After the articles are made public your site will be credited gaining you a very effective backlink which will eventually be found by Google and increase your page rank.

In addition, other sites will find your article and decide to use it on their own sites, getting you more valuable backlinks. This process has a snowball effect that will help your SEO exponentially.

The more published articles you have, the better your chances and tapping into free natural traffic from Google, MSN and Yahoo.

The most common excuse I hear when explaining this process to fellow bloggers and webmasters is the fact that submission takes time, a lot of time that they don’t want to spend.

They want to use their time to create quality content for their sites. Here is my solution, there is a site online that will do all the legwork for you, and they will submit and distribute your article to hundreds of directories. Their company is called Article Marketer. I’ve use them all the time and I can tell you this, they are worth the money!

All I’d ask is that you give them a shot for one month. If you don’t see significant improvements in your SEO, then maybe it’s not for you... Assuming that you have some amazing articles ready for publication when you sign up, I seriously doubt you will want to stop using their service. The advertising money is there all you need is the traffic!
