Blogger + AdSense + Article Marketing = Money

Most of this country is hurting for money.

When that happens, we will see lots of good people turn to the internet with the intention to "make money" online.

Most will pull out the credit card and purchase a couple of hundred dollars worth of e-books and "step by step" guides for making money online.

Most will spend several hours working... will sell nothing... get frustrated and give up.

If this sounds like you, or sounds like something you are thinking about doing, put the breaks on and give this simple system a try instead.

There is a simple system to start making money online in the next 30 days. I do this every day and make money in two ways,

a) adsense clicks (and other smaller ads) and

b) affiliate products worked into my content.

No, you will not get rich, but over time, could develop a very nice recurring income stream, which if you maintain it, will continue to bring steady returns.

Here is the idea:

Many websites have advertisements on them.
Some ads pay more than others.
Websites with these ads and traffic, make money.

And this translates for your like this:

Websites you can build which make money - blogs.
Advertisements for your blog - come from Google AdSense.
Traffic to your blog - comes from article marketing (and a few other things).

Now, let's figure out what you want to blog about and make money off of. Here are some good suggestions to start with..

Financial - debt relief, credit cards, pay day loans, loans, mortgages, grants, college loans, lending, banking, saving, stocks, stock market, currency, etc.

Legal/Medical - lawsuits, malpractice, personal injury, diseases, medical conditions, etc.

Personal problems - dating, relationships, divorce, adoption, etc.

Personal health - weight loss, acne, bad breath, getting in shape, etc.

I like these types of subjects because the revenue per click or related affiliate product pays well. For instance, some lawsuit related adsense clicks pay $20.00 to 30.00 each. One click a website a week and I can make $100.00 a month. Not bad and not too hard to pull in.


With these four good topics, let's do some research.

For instance, don't take too broad a topic. Instead take what marketers call "the long tail" approach.

Weight loss can be broken down into diets, diet products, diet plans, and so on.

Diet products can be broken down into pills, foods, and so on.

Pick a few keywords which are familiar to you.

Go to AdWords

Enter in your keywords and run them.

Look at the keywords and related phrases which have the highest pay per click advertising cost. Those are the ones you want.

Go to Blogger.

Create a Blog for each one of these keywords. Start with 3 blogs which is a manageable number. Note that some of your keywords may not be available as blog titles, so get creative.

Try putting "-" between the keywords like "does-Nutrisystems-diet-work.blogspot.com" or add a www to the front of the blog title, "www-nutrisystems-does-not-work.blogspot.com".

Using your keywords for starters, come up with some related keyword driven blog entries.

Your blog entry titles are the anchor text which search engines will discover and crawl, so make them relative to your subject.

Example: How Much Does Nutrisystems Really Cost? or What is Nutrisystems Food Like? and so on.

Make a goal to write 10 articles for each blog. Post three now and one every three days for the next week or so.

Why do I use Blogger? Read here for the answer..

Layout for Adsense on your Blogger blog. Adsense placement is a funny beast. I listen to some of the experts and do what they say and other times I do what I want. I generally place one text only banner across the top, a 600 x 160 text only down the side and then decide whether to incorporate another 250 x 250 into the article at the end or at the bottom of the page.

Regardless, I change out my adsense ads frequently i.e. moving links in place of banners, etc.

I "generally" never use graphic ads, only text. Although on entertainment sites I will use graphics to mix things up and add some candy to the appearance.

Add a stats counter to your blog to track visitors, use Statcounter. Its free.

Go to Clickbank and find a affiliate product which meets your subject market, i.e. weight loss, financial, etc.

Select one product and include it in your blog either as a mention in a post or as a banner ad someplace.

Go to ezinearticles. Create a profile and write ten generic articles about your subject market. Generic means things like "What is Nutrisystem?", "Will Nutrisystem work for me?", "How does Nutrisystem work?" and so on.

In your profile, point back to your blog. You can create two more default profiles with ezinearticles.com. You can either create another profile for another niche, which is what I do, or edit your existing profile to point to one of your other related blogs.

Make sure that your write ten articles for each niche blog site though!

Go back to your blog. Add an RSS button. After you have installed it, click it and add your blogs to Google, Yahoo and Bloglines. This will get your blogs crawled and added to the search engines in the next few days.

Add your blogs to an RSS submitter. I use RSS AllScoop Tool, its free and it works.

(Do you see the trend here? Blogger, ezinearticles, Allscoop.. they are all free. There is no reason to shell out money yet, you have not made any to spend).

Submit your blogs feeds using RSS.

Go and bookmark your sites. I have a whole entry on social bookmarking which is worth reading here.

Bookmarking builds backlinks and will gather some traffic, but only over time.

Next, go search for ring directories on google. Join at least one for each subject market blog you have, i.e. weight loss, money, etc. Add the ring code and you will get traffic, sometimes more than you think.

Finally, add your blog to Blogcatalog and MyBlogLog. Both will send some traffic your way. There are other similar sites out there worth looking at later.

If you want, build a Hubpage and Squidoo lens for each blog as well. It helps with backlinks, PR rank and traffic.

Now, make sure your articles are getting published to ezinearticles.com and your blog entries are posting on blogger and move on.

Find three more niche markets and start building blogs, bookmarks, articles and traffic.

All in all, each blog will take you about 2-3 hours or setup and writing, depending upon how long it take you to write articles and blog entries.

In a month's time, I generally crank out about 25 blogs and a suitable number of articles for each blog. I set a goal to write one article every morning, another during the day and one more before bed. So I can get a bunch done in one week.

For blogs, sometimes I will set one up a day, other times one every three days.

Here is a result of what one of these blogs I describe looks like.. This site is new and received about 10 unique hits a day. That will grow as related articles are moved about the internet and backlinks grow.


What are results?

OK, most of my blogs end up, after a month or so, getting 40-50 unique visitors a day and they grow from there.

Most of my blogs get at least one Adsense click a day and I can usually sell one Clickbank product a month. So making $30-50 a month per blog is not that hard.

I usually spend one day a week doing what I can maintenance which is optional. Things like monitoring adsense ad effectiveness, Clickbank product clicks and so forth. If something is not moving, I may drop it and add something else. I also add more bookmarks and dress a blog up if it is getting more traffic.

No, this is not exciting stuff and will not earn you a four figure affiliate check every month. But making a 100.00, 200.00 or more check from Google might land you here. And is worth the work from home.

Comment or email me if you have any questions or comments about how this works.
