Understanding Blog Marketing

Making money with blogs is fairly simple if you know what to do with your blog to make it profitable. From layouts to content, there are ways to start making money with blogs. As more and more people turn to well-written blogs for information, making money with blogs will become much easier.

blogs have gone from personal journals to a way to inform the public and discuss politics and world events to business use. Yes, people make money with blogs. In fact, blogging can earn you a very nice income if you know what you are doing. One blogger even auctioned his blogging services on EBay for thousands of dollars! Niche blogs are used to earn money as well. These are blogs where a person writes on a very narrow, yet popular topic, and uses affiliate programs or Google AdSense ads to earn revenue.

BLOGS ARE MAGNETS FOR SEARCH ENGINES: Go on, get on to Google and, whatever topic you search, you’ll inevitably see that the search engines have thrown up a number of Blogs in the top ten results. This is because Blogs are constantly showing fresh, new and key word friendly content just like your web pages should; that’s a Blog’s very reason for being. Imagine the value to you of having your own Blog pop in the top end of search results. The ubiquitous search engines clamor to highlight fresh, appropriate content – they love it. Constantly re-newed and freshened Blogs leave stale, ageing (and rarely updated) web sites for dead.

Add new blog posts at least twice a week. If return visitors come back and see the same-old-same-old, they won’t come back as often. In fact, they may not come back at all so keep your content fresh by adding new posts regularly – a minimum of twice a week.

Every now and then I get inundated with comment spam to my Like and follow me. These comments are usually posted by automated programs that put a short message in your comments that reads something like, “I like your site, lots of good info. Check these out…”, followed by about 5-50 links to their websites.

Though blogs are considered to be informal platforms, you should keep your target audience in mind while posting. You should question yourself about who is going to read the blog and on what keywords should your post come up. It will be helpful if you do a little bit of keyword research as well.

In order to earn more cash using your blogs, it is advisable that you recommend particular products or services to others. You can make money by your blogs through creation of links. You will be amazed by how your blogs can generate income within a short duration.
