Following on from my earlier article ‘How To Make Money Online – Using A Blog – The Correct Way To Name Your Site’ then the next step is simply adding ‘relevant’ content to your blog to attract customers organically. As you chose to use either Blogger or WordPress for hosting your blog site both of them are very search engine friendly. All you now need then is to write content and comments focused on your chosen keywords.
In the recent article we chose the domain name ‘West Ham Fans’ instead of ‘West Ham Supporter’ this was because of how many people searched the term (it was over 13 times more). So when writing an article about the subject of ‘West Ham Fans’ as long as we don’t over use our ‘keyword’ we are likely to see our site and more importantly the pages within it rise quickly in the search engines.
If you want to be able to trace you site easily then I suggest you download a free trial of Market Samurai. Just use their ‘Rank Tracker’ section and it’ll keep you up-to-date on where your site is placed for your chosen keyword phrase. You can also do this manually just by going through the search engine.
If your blog is not quickly indexed then you might choose to use Social sites, such as Digg.com and Mixx.com as these will quickly help push your site up the engines. All you will have to do is create a Digg and Mixx page for yourself; then you go and comment on your page. This provides you with two backlinks from good, ‘highly ranked’ websites. This in search engine terms raises your blogs credibility fast. Also you go to Pingomatic.com, and you ‘ping’ your blog post, your Mixx post, and your Digg post.
Once you have posted these comments you go back and add more content around your keyword (or phrase). For ideas of exactly what other similar terms you can use, go back again to Google’s Keyword tool where you will see what other terms your target traffic is searching for. All you then do is write articles about those phrases as well. After each article you post then you need to go and Mixx, and Digg your post. This will then not take long for your site to show up.
But, you may find that your site does still not appear in one or more of the main search engines straight away. If this is the case then either wait for it to show up or go and submit your site directly to the search engines. The main three engines are Google (roughly 71% of all searches online), Yahoo (roughly 15%), and Bing (roughly 6%). The remaining searches are done over all of the other search engines, so by just focusing on these three then it is the key to make money online from your blog.
You want to have at least five posts done all around your main keyword phrase before you bother looking at monetising your site. Firstly you can add Google Adsense really easily and this can be done using the dashboard on WordPress. In order to make money though you will need to sign up for an Adsense account.
Other very good content to add to your blog is videos which you can take from YouTube and just add to your site. Just go into YouTube and search your keyword phrase and then set up the occasional link to a good video based around your keyword. One step further is to set up a YouTube account for your Domain name. Then add your own videos and specially chosen keyword phrases to them so that when others search on YouTube they may find your site this way. Also YouTube is actually the second largest site where people use to find information etc. Virtually any detail that is not covered in these articles can be found via a YouTube search. In other words, if a technical bit stops you, then the how to do it video is available on YouTube. Don’t forget to Digg, and Mixx your video!
