Blogs are indexed fast by search engines. Opinions about the reasons why vary at the moment but I compare blogs with websites and blog posts with webpages.
It does take time to set up a blog and it takes effort. It takes time to list the blog in the blog directories. The trick is, as with any WebSite to see if you can get some important “niche” and “original” information into your blog. That will let it stand out to the search engines. Search engines today are putting a great deal of emphasis on “original content”, as can be seen just from the many article submission sites that have become much more stringent in their article acceptance process. Non-original content does no one any good. So put “original” content into your web Blog.
Traditional safelists are becoming somewhat threadbare. Isn’t it amazing how quickly business changes on the ‘Net, and isn’t it weird how safelist people ‘spin their wheels’ by posting, posting, posting, when most messages go to ‘junk’ in-boxes to be automatically deleted. You can send out a whole lot of messages with safelists, but only a tiny percentage are likely to be actually read by a real person. Maybe that’s why email traffic is threatening to choke the Internet. Because of this, many canny web business people have now shifted to blogs as their main tool for promotion. Many others, like me – who continue to believe that safelists have a role (when properly used) -have made Workout tracker a valuable extra facility in their marketing toolboxl.
First of all, you need to pick an interesting, unique, or lucrative niche. This can be any subject that you know people are already looking for answers. An easy and very effective way to do this is to use Google’s AdWords Keyword tool. It’s not a good idea to focus on a niche that you are not very interested in, because you may find it difficult to go writing about. It is better if you choose to focus on a single niche that you already love writing about and that you are somewhat knowledgeable about. Doing so is much like picking the online battles that you could win over.
Generally the product can be yours, or it can be someone else’s product (this is called affiliate marketing). In many cases however, the product is simply a free offer that generally has a slightly higher priced up-sell to a “better offer”. A common product here is one that shows you how to get involved with internet marketing or methods of making money on the internet.
To eliminate this kind of spam, these kinds of sites need to be found and removed from search engine indices AND the ad division of the search engines need to refuse to allow these sites to publish their ads. The former is more difficult from the latter, but upon finding such sites, I think search engines have an obligation to remove them.
Making money online with blogs is possible. Consider your blog as another avenue for making money online with little or no cost. Write about what you love, market your blog, and see if the money will follow.
