Following my earlier post here at Make Money Blog about another new website of mine which is targeting the difficult keywords, PayDay Loans, I omitted to mention the important addition to that new corner of my online mini-empire, the free blog!
The idea behind setting up a free blog to complement the website is of course to help drive traffic to the main website as well as provide a one-way link to it to aid off-site SEO.
So what about this blog then?
The url is: PayDay Loans Page
Upon setting it up on the free Blogger platform, there are some interesting rules to be observed. As it targets the taboo keywords “payday loans”, it should not be monetized to begin with as that will set off warning flags at Google HQ of the possibility of a spam site being created, which it certainly is not. To avoid that, I’ll make several content and keyword rich posts to the blog to let it grow naturally over the first couple of weeks and let it get indexed.
Once it’s had 10-12 posts and has been indexed by Google, then I’ll start to monetize it with some PPC ads and affiliate links. After all, there’s not much point in doing that at first as a new blog seldom gets any traffic anyway!
Some more article marketing will follow over the next few weeks to build up some more one-way backlinks and other free promotion techniques that I’ve blogged about in the past right here in this blog will come into play and I should start seeing some decent traffic.
The aim is to get the website, which has already been indexed by Google thanks to that first article posted to GoArticles, into the serps and then climbing up as high as possible to get some search engine traffic.
We shall wait in anticipation!
