How To Blog To Make Cash

How to Blog and Make Money

Blogging to make money online seems to have become the new online dream or pie in the sky job. Many people believe that you can type up a few words and add a new blog post every day and you will be rich. Why not, we have all seen those problogger sites where they went from being nobody to being blogger famous.

Before you start your new blog there are a few things to keep in mind about becoming a rich and famous blogger. Most of those pros took one year or longer at blogging to make any money from it. Sure you might be able to get a dollars here and there, but it will take time to get readers and page rank for your blog. If you don't know what page rank is - find out. If you are prepared to blog for the long haul and willing to do some blog promotion or spend money on advertising then go ahead and try blogging for cash.

You must learn to properly SEO your blog and get lots of traffic to your blog. There are many ways to get free blog traffic, but because it is free it more than likely means that you will have to do some work. You might have to write some articles and submit them. To get more traffic to your blog you should go to others blogs with a similar niche or theme and make relevant comments. There are also some good and free traffic exchanges out there, again you will need to work at this to get anywhere.

I tell you that you will need to work and blogging for cash will take time, not because I want to discourage you, but because I want you to know the truth. Most bloggers who want to make money with their blog will give up after just three months, if they make it that far they may again become bored or frustrated with no cash flow and give up after six months of blogging.

One way of persevering and making a lasting blog is to pick a niche that you will enjoy writing about day in and day out. Make sure you have many different topics in that niche to blog about. You will also need to ask yourself if enough people online will want to read what you are posting about. Then start your blog and post daily, seo it properly and get lots of traffic and you will be well on your way to making money online with a blog.
