A blog is just a simple type of website, that is highly organised in a structure that the search engines really love. You can set them up in no time at all by going to a website host that has a simple installation process, such as 1 and 1. Or you can download the latest copy of WordPress and install that.
The term blog is a shortened term for web-log. My website started as an online application that allowed users to post their thoughts and personal musings. The appeal quickly grew because unlike websites that required (and still do) time to upload and hours to update blogs are updated in real time.
Sabrina: I really can’t answer that question. I put this together based on my many of my client’s asking about blogging. I could see that they needed to blog and I could see that they simply didn’t have the time or know where to start. They also wanted to understand the significance of what blogging could do for their business, SEO (search engine optimization) and their visibility in Google.
There are numerous ways to monetize your online blog website. The first way that comes to mind is Google AdSense, which is free to join. You can display ads that are enjoyed by visitors to your blog. This will maximize the click through rate on your blog site. Other blogging websites offer opportunities to earn money for each blog written. Some websites offer commissions for product reviews and purchases that people make through the ads on your blog site.
Offline promoting: Don’t forget your business cards! This should be a no-brainer but a lot of internet marketers think they don’t need them…or forget lifestyle blogs to put their website on them!
Another Times Union writer/blogger routinely says that when her regular readers are not actively commenting for a while, she’ll actually send them an email to see if everything is okay. These are people with whom she interacts online; in many cases, who she’s never met in person. Yet that absence is enough to make her take time out of her day to follow up with a reader.
Another course I can highly recommend and a community I am proudly a member off, and that is the popular Wealthy Affiliate University. This is a vast grown Internet Marketing community with the number one training available online, reasonably priced and worth checking out.
