I like to learn by looking at examples. The Noob is very mathmatical. I think i always felt comfortable around numbers. As a child, i would not listen to what my math teacher told me. Instead, i’d look at a sample problem and find my own way of solving the equation. I think i do this with blogging. I found my own tricks and secrets by looking at other blogs. I just examine how they make money online.
I have a set routine when it comes to maintaining bloggernoob dot com. I usually start by going through PPP and Sponsored Reviews for paying gigs. (now i do this less) Then, i write up a few filler posts. This usually only takes me 10 mins. Then i write my main post. If i have time, i reply to comments and emails. I check various web forums for news, paying gigs, and blogging jobs.
I try to keep my blogging to a minimum because i wanted to focus on SEO. I’ve hit the front page of google for “make money blog” and “make money blogging.” Now i want to try to break thru the ranks for “make money online.” How will i do this? Easy, i’ll just look at some examples.
Currently, “make money online” is held by bidvertiser, moneymakerinfo.blogspot, and carlocab. I look at their blog, and i see a few similarities. The content on these pages are not that good. But they are doing something right to hold the coveted top spot of “make money online.”
Here’s what i noticed. Bidvertiser is a site that gets linkbacks from a lot of the MMO blogs because of their ad program so let’s not focus on them. The other blogs are not that good. They are constantly using their key phrase in their posts. Every other post title has “make money online” in it. The search term is used in deep links to individual posts in their blog. It’s also in bold and repeated in their post. A lot of their category and tags have this search term. Just rinse and repeat these steps and you should start seeing you site up for your desired search term.
Basically, these guys keep hammering away at their key phrase. If you want to work your way up for your search terms, keep using your search term in your blog. Put it in your blog and post titles. Put it in your header and footer. Do this consistently and often. The “make money online” search term is fluid. It isn’t held by an authority site. Meaning that if you work it hard, you can get on the front page of it cause it’s constantly changing. Check out my man Grizzly’s blog for more info about make money online. Grizz, hope you liked the link.
EDIT- Above all, get links to you site. Don’t just focus on links to you homepage. Get links deep within your blog as well. Try to trade links with other noobies and ask them to link you with you search term. You can get free links by commenting on high PR do follow blogs. Also, get in the habit of linking to youself.
