Blogging for Fame and Fortune  Reply with quote  

Blog Rich?

For anybody interesting in the earning potential of the web, the topic of making money by public posting of your musings has been much discussed. There has been a lot of hype about getting rich blogging, so what's the deal?


Blogs

Of course, a blog is a website that contains dated articles in a newest-first format. Free blog sites like Blogger have brought push-button publishing to the masses, and now millions of blogs are available on the Internet with regularly updated articles on every topic under the Sun.


Along Came AdSense

AdSense is a pay-per-click advertising network run by Google. The idea is that advertisements are contextually selected based on the content that appears on the same page. This provides more relevance which makes the system work better for everyone. Suddenly there was an easy way to tap into a huge advertising network so that even the small-time publisher, like a blogger could get a little piece of the pie. But this equation also requires visitors, but blogs have an advantage!


Community of Blogs

One interesting thing about blogs is that bloggers have a unique community. Traditional web establishments like retail sites or major news outlets tend to not link together out of not wanting to aid the competition, but blogs freely interlink in a variety of ways. First, related blogs will often affiliate together, meaning each blog has a list of partners that they use to link together. Secondly, many blogs will highlight significant articles from other blogs. All this interlinking means that the best information sources tend to get the most traffic through the blog network.


Why Search Engines Like Blogs

There are a few features that make search engines crazy about blogs. The interlinking mentioned before adds to a blog's link popularity score which helps to establish a popular blog site as an authority site in the eyes of the search engine ranking formulas. Also blogs are meant to be regularly updated, and Google, for one, is known for appreciating fresh content. And finally, the permalink. Another feature of blogs that the engines like is that blog software usually provides blog authors with the ability to create a permanent page for selected blog entries. So even though the blog's homepage news may be updated and changing, an article has a permanent home that the search engine can index and send relevant traffic to.


But about the Money?

One popular blog author recently reported that his site was on the way to making about a million dollars over the current year. While there are many blogs that do make a lot of money, the average blog will not make very much. This is due primarily to a lack of traffic, but the good news is that for quality blogs that can continously provide interesting commentary, news and information, the community of blogs will help them get more visibility and traffic. Money aside, some blog just to augment search engine traffic for their main website, and many just blog because they enjoy it. So blog what you love, and the money will follow! ;)

You still need to wait for 18 months plus to start seeing real traffic coming from Google, don't you?

18 Months to see traffic???!!!???

I say it's possible to get a blog to #1 in 30-60 days and if you have decent keywords, then a good amount of traffic would be flowing in just from the SEs, most likely before you become known in the 'blogiverse'.

30-60 days to get on top of Google? I doubt it, maybe if it was a new keyword or had no competition.
If you start a brand new site you are sandboxed for at least 3 months no matter what. At least I always am, even when I don't do any link building.

I don't think you can reach top position for competitive keyword in 30 to 60 days. It would take months, if not years.

Google responds reasonably well to blogs. However, although I've never had a blog go into the sandbox MSN seems to rank them better.

One big advantage of blogs is pinging. My old sites wouldn't get the new content out there untill my site was spidered. With pinging my articles are on all of the blog search engines and get found by Google, Yahoo and MSN much faster..
