Make Money Fast

Following on from my last post here at Make Money Blog, which, lets face it was a pile of garbage designed to attract the scrapers to this site so they could copy the post, hopefully with links intact and publish it on their own sites, thereby giving this blog some link juice for free.

It has minor success as I think even the stupid spammers are cottoning on to the fact that honest Internet marketers are fighting back by doing this same thing.

Oh well, its a dog eat dog system that the spammers continually cause havoc with, so anything that comes back to bite them in the ass is a good thing!

So what’s all this make money fast business?

Matching Keywords to “Buying” Traffic

The title and the numerous references to this topic that you’ll find in this post are designed to give this blog some authority with regards to the keywords, “make money fast”. This side of the money niche, which is, let’s face it a lousy one to try to make any real money in, is one of the few that is not so highly competitive just yet and gives me a chance to rank well with some of my sites.

It’s interesting that my sister site actually sits on Google’s page one for on of its long tail keywords. The site is no longer in my ownership so moot point here. Its main keyword of “make money online”, is believe it or not quite highly searched with the words in that order. It did sit right at the top in position one for “fast makemoney” a while before other site owners realized and went and probably bought themselves back to the top by buying more back-links. That’s something that I haven’t resorted to, as I don’t think that in this niche in particular that it is money well spent.

I know it doesn’t make the best sense, and “make money fast”, or even “make fast money” are better grammar, nevertheless, the term “fast make money” gets searched just as well as the alternatives. By the way, I just gave that site some more link juice and keyword authority which will help to keep it on page one!

So where should you be looking to generate that income rapidly, if not this niche?

Any Niche Will Do

Well, just about any other niche will do as long as you can research and uncover long tail keywords that don’t have too much competition. That’s the secret to learning for instance how to make money playing video games if that’s your target keywoard is to make your sites target their particular niches and sell either affiliate products or use PPC ads like adsense.

The prime objective is to use the right web marketing strategies to get ranked highly in the SERPs to attract organic search traffic. That is the key to success. You won’t make a red cent attracting a ton of social traffic from stumbleupon, or digg or any of those sites. People who use those services are predominantly Internet Marketers of at the very least online street-wise and these kind of people know what PPC ads are and don’t click on them. They also know what affiliate links look like and don’t click them either.

Targeted Traffic

Organic search traffic, on the other hand are not so aware and will click your ads to navigate away from your page, making you money. So you have to create an environment on your website or blog that creates this scenario. You need lots of good content to satisfy the search engines in order to rank highly, but that content does not have to be so good.

If you want to earn cash from your sites, this is the single most important part – your content should NOT (at least completely) answer the questions of your visitors. If they find your site in the SERPs because they have a need, you must NOT satisfy that need. Your content must be good, but not so good as to give your visitors what they want, else they will have no need to click you ads.

If they land on your homepage and start reading but don’t find they answer to their question, they’ll most likely click an ad if its well placed to navigate away from your page in search of the answer they seek.

This goes against what you’ve been taught and what is deemed to be good blogging practice. You have been brainwashed into believing that you should write your very best content, best grammar, perfectly spell-checked highly informative and full of useful information. I believed this for a long time too. But after over a year of working in this way and NOT making anything like the kind of income that I should have been making, something was obviously not right.

You have two choices and they are separate and distinct.

You either write well and enjoy your blogging and writing and attract a good readership and loyal fans, but don’t expect to make enough dosh from it to eat.

Or you switch your mode of thinking into make cash fast plan, and stop writing such great stuff and instead write for the search engines. Make your posts long and rambling so they can contain as many of your keywords as possible without obviously stuffing. Don’t actually answer the questions that your post give the impression they are designed to do. And make some more money.

This post is quite long enough, so I’ll stop here and will continue this theme in a future post.
