If I didn’t have enough to do with my limited time, I’ve gone and launched another new blog!
This one is a self hosted one, so it’s serious (not that free blogs are nor serious, just they aren’t used the same way by me). There is a madness in my method – blogs are money makers without doubt, but before they can make money they have to mature. This blog is not quite four months old and is doing rather well, but needs to gain more traffic and credibility, which it will do with age like most things.
But it’s always a good idea to have new blogs coming up from new to bolster the older ones with links, traffic and cross-blogging ability. (that’s a topic for another post)
The new blog is set into the work at home niche so although its focus will be Internet Marketing, it’s keywords are “work at home” rather than make money. Those keywords are not quite as competitive as make money, but are still tough to break into.
But I’m not put off by any of that, as I believe I can crack any niche given sufficient time and the backing of my older sites and blogs.
There is also a rear-guard action reason for the new blog and it has to do with the recent slapping a certain search engine has been doing to blogs which feature paid reviews. While it will take a minimum of three months to have the new blog ready to accept reviews, it can be getting prepared to do that and step in if either (or both) of my make money blogs suffer any mishaps along the way…
I’m confident that it will do as well as this one!
My New Make Money Website & Blog
Following my earlier revelations here about another new website of mine which is targeting the difficult keywords like 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!
How the Day Goes
It’s strange how different days go in terms of workload. Some days start out with a fluster of energy and an absolute ton of work gets done and out of the way.
Then there are days like today that start slow, gradually grind to a halt around lunch time, stutter into life in the late afternoon, then rev up to full lunacy last thing at night when all of a sudden half a dozen tasks come up all at once and simply have to be dealt with.
It’s just a part of the wonderful joy of working for yourself at home on your trusty computer, with no whip cracking boss breathing down your neck and no clock to watch!
I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
