NeedMoney! Squidoo

You probably already use Squidoo. I do and have for longer than you. In fact, I invented Squidoo.

Okay, a little second grade humor for your Thursday online drive to work.

Anywho, so Squidoo. What is it good for? Absolutely everything!

Used to be, when Squidoo started, Lensmasters would build a lens on a single subject ("Laptop bags"). They would then build an incredibly detailed Lens on that subject and spend lots of time updating it and making it purty.

But over time, something happened with Squidoo. Lots of people started using it and many lens were made. And as it happens, the Page Rank, Google's ranking of how godly a website is, for Squidoo became greatly large. As of today, March 27, Squidoo has a PR of 7 of 10 (sounds like a Borg name!).

A PR site of 7 is mondo good for inbound links to your website or blog. And everyone knows that so many bloggers and website operators quickly began building basic lenses designed around keywords pointing back to their "needmoney" website or blog.

End result; increased organic search engine rankings which means many will find you and click ads, buy stuff, signup on lists, etc.

So your mission, should you decide to accept it?

Go build many lenses today and commence pointing them at your web site or blog!

NeedMoney! One post or page? Which is best?

With blogs, each post you make should have a header page which acts as a link to the blog post. For instance. this post's title "NeedMoney! One post or page? What is best?" is the link to this blog post.

Now in the blog to web page world, a blog entry is a single web page. And remember, that each web page is a channel for you to generate revenue. So if you are running affiliate ads, signups or context ads, each page's unique content is viewed, by the search engines as a separate web page. And that means the potential for more money.

So, if you are running a blog like NeedMoney, should you put one blog entry per page or multiple?

Search engines are going to find your blog entries by the anchor text, title, header and keywords, both in the body and tagged. They they will display the title post of your blog as the link to the keywords or search terms.

So regardless, they are going to get to your blog whether you have one post or twenty on your blog.

For aesthetic reasons (AdSense ad units), I limit my blog posts to two per page FYI. It works for me and I seem to find organic search traffic using this means.


Need Money! Ain't gonna happen

So you are checking the bank account and see you are a tad bit short this month? Or maybe you have a car payment coming due? Or maybe a credit card bill?

So you think to yourself "I need to figure out a way to make some extra money."

The next thing you know, you are on the computer and type in "needmoney" thinking you will find a plethora of neat ways to make cash online. After all, you have heard about all those people who are making lots of green stuff online and you figure you are going to get some too, right?

Before long, you end up on a site like this one. Sure it sounds like a great deal; build some web pages, stuff them with content off the Internet and watch the AdSense checks roll in.

There's a problem with your logic (don't feel bad. Lots of others have the same problem). Everyone else is trying to do the same thing. So you have hundreds if not thousands of folks trying to build a dozen MFA (Made For AdSense) sites thinking they are going to start getting multi-thousand dollar checks every month.

And then there is the economy of scale. What this means is somebody in a third world country is able to pump out thousands of these types of sites a month using cheaper labor than you can dream of. Why? Because if he is successful, those AdSense checks go much further where he lives than where you do.

So that hour or two you put into building your web pages and blogs is nothing compared to the hundreds of hours your competition is devoting to the cause.

So in a nutshell - "It ain't gonna happen."


Unless you think more creatively.

For starters, one word: Originality. Original layout. Original content. Original traffic strategy.

For Originality, even if you use Blogger like I do, make your pages as different as other pages.

Make your content your own. Never use free articles (everyone does and duplicate content will get you banned). Instead, get in the habit of writing original articles daily. Do it in the early morning hours or late at night. Get good at cranking out 250-300 word entries.

Get traffic your way. Read and comment on other blogs. Use LinkedIn and Yahoo answers. Join forums and post regularly. Use Stumblr, Digg and Reddit religiously.

And if there is one thing I can tell which matters - stick with it. Don't stop trying to get more traffic, more clicks, more readers and more money.

Finally, it can happen. You just have to stick with it!


NeedMoneyBlog! How to make money with Adsense

How to make money with Google AdSense.

How much money do you want to make with Google AdSense should be the real title.

For instance, I have had website and blogs which used one of the following money generation channels.
- Google AdSense
- Amazon
- Clickbank
- Commission Junction
- Kontera
- AdBrite
- Azoogle
- AuctionAds

The above list also represents the channels by which I have made the most money online.

I have made more money from Google AdSense than I have from Kontera for instance. So I use AdSense on all of my sites now and only use Kontera on one or two.

To make money with AdSense, you have only two choices to make. Either one site or more and how much work do you want to do?

For instance, I checked this week and I now have over 70 sites running in one form or another right now. Of those, only about 6-7 make me any significant money (anywhere between 1-5$ a day is my rule).

Some of you may be saying, "One or two dollars a day? That's nothing!". True. But if you have 5 sites making that much a day then you are making potentially some decent money. Especially if the work, the content you create is only taking an hour or so a day.

Back to making money with Google AdSense.

First, build a site. I think the fastest way is to use blogger. AdSense is already integrated into the layout, so all is needed is a niche idea and some original content and you are off.

Next, get some traffic. "Right!" says the average reader. "Do you know how hard traffic is to generate?" Yep, I do. The hard way.

Start simple. To get traffic try this:
- Build a Squidoo page (see upper right hand corner for mine) and link it to your new web page. Squidoo pages will stream some traffic and a high ranking page ranked site to your new web page or blog.
- Build a Hubpage. Same as above.
- Register with MyBlogLog and get a few more hits a day.
- Stumble every page. Everyone underestimates this, but I get anywhere between 50-80% of my daily traffic for some of my sites from Stumblr.
- Tag all of your pages with, Furl and others. I get a few hits a day this way.
- Digg and Reddit good blog posts on these web sites. Some can generate some good traffic your way if your article is decent.
- Comment post to other blogs and forums. You can also increase your page rank this way, too.

Okay, build that blog and fine tune it for traffic. I always put my AdSense ads (in full compliance with their TOS, of course) in these spots.
- Top left
- Right column
- Between postings
- Search box on top right (never forget about this little gem).

That is it. Anymore is overkill. Don't use those bottom of the page horizontal ads. They blow your per-click earnings and no body clicks on those ads.

Okay, so you built the site, went it worked on traffic and have your ads set up. So now what?

One problem many make is they choose a niche market that a) they know nothing about, b) everyone else is doing (lots of competition) or c) they know something about, but it has not intrinsic value (no traffic or advertisers). The end result is no money.

Attack each of these problems individually.

a) Choose a niche you have some knowledge about or at the very least, are interested in.
b) Watch the competition. Everyone is doing pay day loans, student loan assistance, mortgages, credit card offers, gambling, insurance and the crowd favorite medical/legal lawsuits and settlements. Why? Because they make money. The per click payment may be 2,5, 10 dollars or more. So watch the competitive space.
c) Esoteric topics may be of interest to you, but most do not make any money. Some may be in violation of Google Adsense's Terms of Service. So to make money, find topics based upon products people would actually pay for.

Most important of all, stick with it. Have fun with your blogs and websites. You will find with each twenty-eight cent click you get excited about fine tuning and creating more content for your blog!

Need Money! how can I make money using adsense context links

I hear this question a lot? "How can I make money using adsense links?".

Google AdSense is neat because it is the largest, most successful and easiest to use context advertising revenue generating product on the Internet. There I said it. Challenge my claim...

Here is my road map to make money using Google AdSense context advertising links.

1) Decide upon a topic you know about and enjoy writing about.

2) Set up a blog. I like blogger but Wordpress is favored by many other bloggers.

3) Layout your template. I argue that the layout is not as important as others say. Content is so desired on the internet that nearly any web site, "with good, regularly updated content" can make money.

4) Place AdSense ads on the top between the Header and the first blog entry, along the left or right side and between article entries.

5) Start posting using keyword driven entries "How to write a legal will", "How to get a low cost airline ticket", etc.

6) Use social networks, article directories, comments and SEO planning to build inbound links, traffic and search engine rankings.

7) Keep posting as much as possible with original content - do not use generated articles or reprints!

8) Set an easy target of .10 to .25 per day in AdSense revenue and build up from there. Try and setup a few blogs per week each with the same goal. The goal is to get to $1-3.00 per day within 30 days.

There, you are on your way to making money online using adsense contextual advertising links. It can be done.

And for those who scoff at $30.00 per month, remember that most people never make more than a few dollars a YEAR online if any.

Stick with it!
