A do it yourself blog has a great deal going for it. Here I look at the aspects of blogging that you must not overlook, especially if your ambition is to make money out your creation. The worlds most popular blogging platform is WordPress and it’s free. Your blog posts should, obviously, be about whatever niche you have decided to promote, however you can sprinkle it with humorous posts and posts about yourself. However, make these last two brief and avoid an ego trip.
How to make more money – especially from home, online.
Self improvement. This is a huge market that covers everything from weight loss to spiritual matters including appearance as well as mental and physical health issues.
Relationships. How to find a boyfriend/girlfriend, how to prevent relationships/marriages from ending and dating services.
Anything that you have a burning passion about, just make sure that if you intend to monetize your site that the subject matter has a large enough potential audience.
Make your own videos embed them in your blog and distribute them far and wide, You Tube isn’t the only video hosting service. The basic plug-ins that you should have on your blog are All In One SEO, Google XML Sitemaps and Akismet. Everything on your blog should, as far as possible, be search engine optimized. This, essentially, means ensuring that the subject matter of your posts and articles should be something that is searched for, worldwide, by, at least, five thousand people per month.
The article’s title should be the keyword phrase that surfers use to access the required information. For example, how to loose weight, make money online, I want my boyfriend back etc. An article should have it’s own page. The URL and title of that page should be your keyword phrase or contain that phrase. Photographs, bullet points, numbered lists and short paragraphs will make your blog pages more interesting.
As an additional tip you should ensure that your blog remains fresh. A blog that has not changed for a long time looks dead and un-appealing. The search engines favour any site that is constantly added to. Daily posts are the ideal. A do it yourself blog run correctly can be a powerful marketing tool. There are many blogs that provide the owners with a substantial income. Just be aware that, like lots of worthwhile projects, blogs need a lot of hard work to be invested in them.
