How to Set Up a Blog and Make Easy Money Online
Making money online has never been simpler. With the creation of AdSense, affiliate programs, and product marketing, making money online has reached a level of sophistication that allows everyone to make money easily. All it takes is time, effort, and forethought.
Choosing a Niche to Make Easy Money
Although everyone seems to be doing it, there isn’t a lot of guidance on how to start. As you may or may not know, the first step is picking a niche or two and then compiling a blog to attract people to your niche site. Picking a niche is usually as elementary as thinking about what people look for online, what they will purchase online, and then building a site around that. I use other methods that increase my “luck,” which I will discuss later, but they are unimportant here.
Setting up a Blog to Make Easy Money
Once you have picked a niche, you should set up a blog. The important thing to keep in mind is that you are not setting this up to get max readers, get on Entertainment Tonight, and make the front page of US Weekly. This blog is meant to do one thing; get traffic to your site, so when/if they don’t find precisely what they are looking they will click on your ads or links and make you money. Because this is the goal, your blog will not be classy, it will not have many bells and whistles. It will be basic, it will be concise, and it will work.
There are many sites to make a blog, but why not take advantage of the free one? Blogger.com will let you make any blog you want (porn blogs and gambling blogs are not encouraged), set everything up for you, and all you have to do is type! A computer novice could do this, and you can too. Start making money online now.
Step one is to go to blogger and “create a new blog.” Once that’s done put in your blog title. It is important that the title contain keywords and as little other language as possible. To do this, use a pipe signal where you would use “and” ( | is it – use shift plus backward slash to get it). For instance, my blog title is “Make Money Easy | Make Money Fast.” This is critical because it is the first thing the Google bot is going to see when it reviews your site for content. You want this keyword to get picked up so you can begin to get indexed as soon as possible.
After the title, put in your blog address; make it as relevant to your topic as possible too. This is another criteria of the search engines as to what your site is about. Get it? Now enter the word verification.
The next step is picking a template. Remember, we want clicks, not fans, so I’d stick with Minima. It translates to the most clicks, in my experience. Congratulations, you’ve just created your blog and you can now start making money!!
Before posting, I’d suggest setting up your blog to maximize its potential. First go to settings. In “description,” enter the keywords you want to optimize, remembering to use the pipe symbol instead of “and” or “or.” Later, you can come back and change this to optimize your keyword of the day. When finished, leave everything else, save the settings and move on to publishing in the settings tab.
In publishing, it should have your blogspot address. This is important because it’s where your posts go. You may want to change this after you get started, to maximize your traffic.
Next is formatting. On the show button, click 1 post on the main page. Pick your time zone and date preferences and where it says show link fields, choose “yes.” This allows you create a distinct link for each post. When you make a post, enter your blog address in there. Save those settings and go to Comments.
In comments, show backlinks and make sure word verification for comments is on.
Archiving should stay the way it is. Now go to layout. This is where you can customize your site by adding page elements. AdSense, html, and other things are housed here. I suggest you to mess with it, but would warn you to wait to put AdSense on your site for at least a month. This will allow you to build up page rank, get some backlinks, and gain some credibility with the search engines.
