Web logs at their core are simply online message forums with the most recent message postings at the top of the page. Blogging has erupted in popularity in the last 10 years, and blogs focus literally on anything (and everything) someone (or anyone) has an opinion on. Blogs often serve as types of ‘sounding boards’ for opinions and updated information, but they can also be online diaries and simple mediums for message posting. Blogs can be created quickly and easily and many sites such as Blogger.com allow users to create web logs for free.
There are several ways to make your blog one of the “hot” blogs online. Traditionally, those companies that have the largest star-power have had the most popular blogs, since everyone loves to read about celebrity or success. However, a great many smaller companies and individuals are developing large followings on the web. You can, too, with this simple lesson.
This is what happens when you start approving comments from bloggers who are not closely related to your own niche. The reverse of this applies to you as well.
Websites are generally more static than Feedback. What this means is that their content doesn’t get changed very frequently. Content is static with few changes made over time. Whereas with blogs, which are noted for being active, have their content changing frequently. It is for this reason that they are so popular with search engines like Google.
Well, even as good as this comment is, what if it is from a site that is not congruent with my market? Or, what if their site has no page rank, traffic, etc; etc?
Because there’s a cost to these lists, fewer people use them. However, in my experience, many of these purchased lists are still spammed to death because there’s no oversight on the commenting quality. Like number 1 above, many of the blogs on purchased lists soon switch their commenting to nofollow fairly quickly.
Making money online with blogs is possible. Consider your blog as another avenue for making money online with little or no cost. Write about what you love, market your blog, and see if the money will follow.
