Blogging For Dollars With WordPress Blogs
Some of the best Blogs online today are Wordpress Blogs. So if you want to start a Blog using one of the many established Blog sites such as Blogger, carefully think about what you want to end up doing with your Blog.
There are millions of Blogs online today and most of them fail because their owners abandon them. Some Bloggers abandon their Blogs because they get bored (they are not passionate enough about their topic) while others find limitations in their Blog software.
Most, if not all, free Blog sites have limitations in what you can and cannot do. In addition, you donít own your own web domain or URL. This is itself is extremely disadvantageous for you. Moreover, the free Blog site may go out of business tomorrow and there goes all your hard work.
With a Wordpress Blog, you will never have to worry about limitations. There are tons and tons of plug-ins that make life easier and better for you as a Blogger. The best thing is that everything is free and there is a ton written about Wordpress online so researching it and what you want to do with it is an easy task.
You also will own your own Wordpress Blog because Wordpress is simply a Blog software that you use to create and manage your Blog. You will need a domain and web host to host your Blog. Donít worry, that is the easy part. The most important is that you use the best Blog software available today in Wordpress!
Blogging is Fun! Blogging for Dollars is Even More Fun!A Blog is a quick solution for an online presence and a good alternative to a website. It allows you to quickly get online and get your message across and start developing a following of readers. Although it is not a profitable as a website (in my opinion), a lot of money can be made Blogging.
Blogging is a fun activity! Itís speaking to the rest of the world in whatever way you want and say whatever you want. Itís especially more fun when you start getting comments and interacting with your readers. If you do a good job you will begin to develop a following.
You can then make money Blogging and leverage the traffic your Blog receives. There are tons of ways you can make money Blogging.
Search Optimizing Your Wordpress BlogWhile free Blog websites are a quick and easy solution to a Blog, you are restricted in your ability to optimize them for search engines. Search Engine Optimization (ďSEOĒ) also applies to Blogs.
A Wordpress Blog on the other hand is just like a website, if not one. You have full control over the Meta tags and content of your Blog (even the stuff that works behind the scenes which you cannot modify or optimize with a free Blog website) and you can optimize it for search engines any way you want.
What to Do With Your Wordpress BlogTo have a successful Blog online with a lot of traffic, you need to focus on a particular subject or theme for your Blog. If you have a website, make your Blog focus on the same theme as your website and leverage one to help the other.
Once you have a concept developed, start talking about it and you will attract readers that are also interested in the same subject. Use a keyword research tool to research highly demanded and sought after search terms so you can create content around those terms to further optimize your Blog posts.
It is really no different that a website if you think about it. Much of what applies to a websiteís SEO and marketing also applies to a Wordpress Blog.
Your Wordpress Blog Domain & Web HostYou can get your domain from anywhere really. I recommend GoDaddy for a cheap domain. While youíre at it, you can sign up for their hosting as well. However, you may want to consider other web hosting options as well (this is based on your preference of what you want along with hosting and how much you value customer support and ease of integration). I have had some experience integrating Wordpress Blogs with BlueHost. The process is painless.
Blog EthicOnce you have your Wordpress Blog developed, you need to post to it often. Iíd recommend 2-3 times per week. Spend some time planning your post. Ensure it is grammatically correct and doesnít contain any misspelled words.
Remember, the world can see your Blog. You want to sound educated and informed about your topic. You also want to show that you care about your posts and have put in time thinking them through.
Make your posts interesting and engage your reader. Compel them to take action by commenting on your post. Provide your reader with something meaningful, may it be a thought that gets them thinking. If you are able to do that, Iíd say your post will be successful and well received.
A Blog or WebsiteI have heard many arguments on what is better between a Blog or a website. I am sure you have heard the same. The truth is either can work for you if you are truly passionate about your subject matter and are determined to succeed.
All factors equal however I personally feel that a website is better if your goal is to make money online. If you are looking for just a fun activity, a little interaction with folks and express your feelings and opinions to the masses, then Iíd say you should stick to a Blog.
But if you want to leverage your traffic stream and online presence to make money I strongly suggest considering a website. Read this article for an in depth look into Blogging vs. Websites. This article further validates my opinions and experience when it comes to choosing a website over a Blog.
That said, the best avenue is to have both and leverage one to assist the other. In fact, you can release new Blog posts and make them articles on your website as well. A successful website and Blog is a dynamic duo hard to defeat!
