For all of you who have a blog and make money with it, or are trying to make money with it, there is a reason that you aren't successfull with it yet. There are some things that you have to realize before you actually start your blog for it to be successful.
#1-Your blog must have a niche. You have to have a target audience for your blog if you want to make money with it. If you have a blog and you promote everything under the sun from glasses to pocketbooks then you have a range so broad you would end up having to compete with major store brands before you even start to see the first page of Google. Narrow your blog so that you have a topic that (a)Gets searched for a lot and (b) Doesn't have a lot of competition for.
#2-Once you have found your niche, it is very easy to go to Blogger and set up a free website. However sites that are set up from the free platform generally don't get indexed as fast with the search engines as a regular .com domain name. What I mean is, if your niche is about dog collars, then, instead of going to Blogger and setting up a free website where the address is "dogcollars.blogspot.com", you should go to GoDaddy.com where you can get $5 domain names. A domain name that reads "dogcollars.com" is a whole lot better than "dogcollars.blogspot.com" and it will help you in your quest for getting on the first page of Google.
#3-Ok, you have your niche and you have bought your domain name. The next thing to do is go to the Google Keyword Tool and research some keywords for your blog. This is probably the most important thing that you can do to make money blogging. Once you are in the Google Keyword Tool, put in some keywords that YOU would type if you were trying to find your blog. A list of searches should come up. What you want is the keywords that have LOW competition. It will say it beside of the word. You then need to start building links to your site. This is how you will make it to the first page of Google. The more Google sees your sites URL on someone else's site, the faster you will become regognized on the first page. This is how you make money.
Building links is fairly simple. I explain it in my blog on Ways To Make Money Blogging. The simplest method is to join a link building program like LinkVana, they will help you find sites that you can post your URL to in a fast and efficient manner.
You CAN make money blogging. Don't ever be fooled by the person who says, "I just love to write, and I don't care if I make money or not!" That's a load of you-know-what. They just don't know how to get their site on Google's first page. If you could make money doing what you love, and say you love to write, wouldn't you love to make money blogging? This is how you do it.
