It’s true that I have a “regular” website, my so-called “main website,” which I first set up to sell my goods, in this case, men’s and women’s health products. It’s my workhorse, the source of most of my revenue. Most of my sales resulted from generic listings in the search engines, particularly Google.
This morning out of curiosity I called up these statistics, fully expecting to see hits in the low teens. People who just happened by my blog by mistake. I certainly did not expect to see a number in the hundreds coming close to a thousand hits in the period from November 2005 until the end of Jan. 2006.
There are free online blog formats, yet many of those have limits on what can be done as far as earning income. Online Tracking can destroy your blog with little to no notice. So many people opt to host (have on a personal website) their own blog. The initial set up requires a little work, but after it is very easy to run. This also allows for more creativity, more adaptability, and less worry about the online program deciding they do not like your blog anymore.
Next, find some place to publish your blog. There are a number of sites – both paying and free – that give bloggers a chance to publish their material. You may also want to simply set up your blog on your web site, especially if you already have an active web site.
One. How do blogs make money? Bloggers make money by recommending or reviewing products. If a blogger tells you about a product (which has a referral payment) and you use that link to purchase the item, the blogger gets paid.
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.
So here is the real deal, fix your spiritual life before you go on a journey to fix any other area of your life. Didn’t Jesus say to first seek the kingdom and everything else shall be added? Where and how did we miss or forget that? Let’s get it right, fix your spirit. Plain and simple. We can beat around the bush another 30 years but in the end there it is again. The problem is in the spirit realm. Get in touch with your maker, make your peace with Him and get back to God Almighty. He has been waiting for you.
