8 Ways To Monetize Your Blog

I have tested all the 8 methods on my blog but only a few are helping me to make income online. The rest of the methods are not suitable to be used on my blog. Therefore, you can use any of the 8 methods I mention to monetize your blog. Test it to see the results. I will now go straight into the 8 methods.


1) PPC advertising

This is by far the most commonly use method to monetize a blog. You make money by placing ads on your blogs. Every click on the ads will give you a certain amount of money depending on the how much the advertisers are offering. However, most PPC networks should have their internal tracking for you to check your performance. Place the ads in different places and you might experience different results. Examples of the PPC network include Google Adsense, Bidvertise and Chitika.

2) Direct Ads Sales

Selling your own advertising space is the bread and butter of most bloggers. It gives you monthly passive income should the advertisers are placing it for long. However, if your blog are still an the infant stage, you need to approach advertisers to see if they are interested in sponsoring your blog. You can read more on how to find your advertisers here:

3) Reviews

You can write review on specific topic or product and get paid for it. You are usually given better opportunities when you have higher PR and lower alexa rank. It can range from $5 - $200 per review. There are several review network company such as payperpost, reviewme and sponsoredreviews. At the same time, you can advertise on your blog to do sponsored review and thus the review network company will not get a cut in between. This is widely used for new blogs who just got updated with PR and you get nice income from it if you are not lazy.

4) Affiliate marketing

This is the most powerful tool to make money online. Affiliate marketing simply means selling other people products and getting a commission out of it. You can find a lot of products to sell and it includes digital as well as physical product. The more commonly use affiliate networks are ClickBank, CJ and PayDotCom. You will need to leverage on your traffic and write a review of the product to recommend it to your readers.

5) Text Links

This is basically selling links from your blog to the advertisers. However, text links are less popular compared to banner advertising. Again this is very dependent on PR and alexa rank. You can find the text links network such as TextLinkAds, Linkworth and TNX to find advertisers.

6) Selling E-Book

If you have flair in a certain topic and could teach people on something regarding the topic, then you should consider writing an E-Book to sell. This is a one time effort but could yield you a lot of money if you content are valuable. If you notice there are so many E-Books on similar topics but people still keep buying. This is because people are using money to buy hope. An example of E-Book is "How to make your first million" which will attract a lot of people who are working towards that goal. They are willing to pay $20 in order to read the method and hoping that they could earn one million dollars. Promote the E-Book through your blog to start seeing sales coming in.

7) Referrals

You can do referral advertising but asking people to join certain network. Example of this are payperpost and freebies4webmaster. You will be paid a certain amount if they sign up with the company. This is relatively simple if you have traffic and could easily make hundreds of dollars from it.

8) Donation

It wouldn't harm if you put a donation button on your blog. People might like your content and want to buy you a beer or something. Therefore, donations are the best way to show their appreciation for your hard work. Although you would not make a lot from this area, but remember that you should earn money online through many income streams.


Do try the methods above and track the results. All the best. Enjoy!

8 Tips To Get More Comments

Ok I will be back in shape now to write for Successbiz4all again. Have been really too busy these days and will start getting active again. Let's touch on this topic with how to get more comments on your blog. However, you need to keep in mind that you need quality traffic first before even thinking of having people to leave comments on your blog.

Basically I separate readers into 3 categories :

1) Browse & Go

These are the group of people that have short attention span and spend very little time on a blog. Most of the time they are interested in only reading contents and not doing anything else. They are also not loyal to any blogs because they go from blogs to blogs just for content.

2) Passive Reader

They are loyal readers of your blog and I really mean loyal "readers". They do come back to your blog everyday to read on your content and do nothing else even though your content might be fantastic. One very good reason they don't leave comment is because your blog are NoFollow and zero PR. There are not direct benefits for them leaving comment on your article and thus they are only purely interested in reading.

3) Active Reader

These are the most desired group that any blog wants to have. They are loyal readers of your blog and comment on most of your article. They add value to your article with constructive comments or sometimes compliment on your writing. This blog used to have 5-10 frequent commenters but have since stop after my activeness on the blog decrease gradually. I believe they will soon come back once I keep posting great content again.


Why Need More Comments

1) Social Proof

I have been stressing alot on the social proof of your blog and comment is another area which you can work on apart from your feed subscribers count. When there are many comments on your article, people would be influenced with the thoughts that your blog are popular. At the same time, you will be portrayed as someone with great knowledge on the niche that you are blogging about.

2) Wider Exposure

When there are many comments on your article, it gives your article a wider exposure because people that drop by your blog will be attracted by the high comments number on your article. This will increase the chances of them to read your blog and perhaps convert them into your regular reader.


8 Tips To Get More Comments

1) Interact with your readers

Try to answer on the questions ask in the comments and interact with your readers as well. Never leave a question unanswered. This is especially important when your blogs are starting out because you want your readers to know that their comments are being valued.

2) Ask questions

Try to post a question at the end of the article to start the comment ball rolling. This is because there are people who do not know how to make constructive comments and by asking a question, you give them an idea on what to write in comments. This technique is good and effective if you have a certain amount of quality traffic - active readers. As your blog grows, use this technique on every article get people to comment.

3) Use compelling headlines

Use headlines that are not attractive to draw their attention. An example is " Making money online blog are dying off". This will be any interesting title for many bloggers who are in this niche to read and write their opinion in the comment section.

4) Make your blog DoFollow

Reward your reader for writting in their opinion by giving a backlink to their web URL. This becomes a win-win situation for both side and will definitely increase the number of comments on your blog especially when you have a PR.

5) Leave some area of content untouched

Try to leave some content or area for your reader to write on to add value to your article. If you have covered all the areas for that topic, your readers will find it difficult to put value into their comments.

6) Use comment encouraging plugins

This applies more for the wordpress user because they have plugins like commentluv, top commentator and subscribe to comment which will encourage more comments due to the backlink given to their post or webpage. Blogger have its own widget like top commentators but I find it not very well designed and that is why I don't used.

7) Try to get a PR

When you have PR 3-4 and your blog is DoFollow, it will lead to a lot of comments both constructive and spam on your blog. You should know the reason why this happens?

8) I would like to hear from you on what other tips you can suggest to the successbiz4all community.

Why Do People Subscribe To Your Blog

Why do people subscribe to blog? Out of 50 people that I asked, this is their response:

29 voted on quality content
11 voted on gathering topic ideas to blog
7 voted on keeping track of competitors
3 voted on contest

Quality Content

Content will always be the soul of any blog. Whether a blog is successful or not will always depend on the content that it provides. More importantly to provide consistent quality content and not just writing 1-2 fantastic articles and hoping the few articles will bring you blogging success. Dream on bloggers!


Gathering Topic Ideas

I do look around other blogs to see what they are writing about and try to see if I could add any additional content or ideas to the similar topic that they have already blogged about. This will also be a unique point that you could present on your blog.

In order to get people to subscribe to your blog for the reason of gathering topic ideas, it will link back to your "soul of the blog" - content. You need to constantly provide quality contents to give other bloggers of similar niche a reason to subscribe to you.


Keeping Track Of Competitors

This will be more applicable to blogs of your similar size or traffic. People love to compete and see how much they have improve over the week, month and year. By keeping track of your competitors, you will know when they have a traffic spike and what are the topics that they blog about which lead to this. You should then try to extend on the information that your competitors have provide because this is the area of topics that people are interested in and are proven by your competitors blog.


Contests

I have tested this for you and you should have seen the leap in the number of subscribers to my blog. This is by far the most easiest way to increase subscribers count. However, from the group of 50 people that I surveyed, only 3 subscribed to blog due to contest. From this we can see that this will never be best reason that people subscribe to your blog.


Out of the 4 reasons that people subscribed to blog, 2 of the reason are dependent on the factor of quality content. Thus, creating quality content will be the key to success on any blog.

Today will be the last day to enter my contest and I will be announcing the winners tomorrow. You can read more on the contest here. I have about 75 unique subscribers as of now and hope to see a miracle of it hitting 100 so that I will give out prize to the 4-10th place winners as well. All the best.

How I Obtain 76 Backlinks On Google In 1 month - Part 3

This will be the last part for this series and if you missed out on my previous 2 posts, you can read it here:


The last method that I have used to obtain backlinks are the most easiest to obtain and which is through great content. With great content posted on your blogs, it will attract readers to come back again for more of it. And at the same time, the chances of them linking back to your blog is much higher if they find that your content is worthwhile to be read by their audiences. This is the most powerful backlinks in which you should concentrate.

Why do I say so? Your readers maybe someone with a blog of mediocore size and getting a traffic of around 500-1000 visitors per day. If they were to recommend your content and linkback from their blog, you have gotten yourself a nice traffic source. Thus, you might be able to convert this linked traffic into your regular readers. Imagine just converting 5% of the linked traffic to your blog, you are gaining around 25-50 more subscribers to your blog.

Quality content will always be the skeleton of your blog. Without keeping new and quality content coming in, you will risk losing your audiences. This is the perfect example on my blog because I have not been posting regularly on my blog this week and I lose a handful of readers.

Then you will start asking me, what kind of content is regarded as quality content? What is the kind of content people will be interested in reading? Although I will not be able to tell you on the specific topic to write for your niche, I could still tell you what category of articles you should produce to capture their attention. Headlines or title of your post is also another important component in writing great content.

I will be covering more on how to create better headlines as well as content in my coaching blog at www [dot] abloggerblog [dot] com which will be starting out on the 16th sept 08. I will be posting 1-2 articles prior to the launch of my new blog. Do subscribe to it for updates on my blog.

How I Got Over 180 Subscribers In 2 Months

These might not be very fantastic results but I take into consideration that I am not any celebrities or famous in blogging. Therefore, getting 180 subscribers in 2 months are quite an achievement to me. But why do bloggers want to aim for high subscriber count? What impact does it have on a blog?


Why Get High Subscribers


1) Social Proof

High subscribers act as a form of social proof to others. Social proof in this case would mean that you have readers for your blog and might be worth their time to stop and read. This also increases the chance to convert visitors into regular readers since they actually stop and read your content. At the same time, your blog gain more exposure. This is also the reason why the bigger blogs grow so much faster due to the effect of social proof. If you put yourself into the same shoe as a visitor to a blog, does this apply to you as well?

2) Increase Daily Visits

This only applies when you update your blog daily. This is because when you update your blog, your subscribers will get an update on their RSS readers/aggregators. Therefore, they will click on the updated post and pay a visit to your blog. Once you have 100 over subscribers, you can expect at least 250 daily hits per day which is a rough estimate of around 200k Alexa weekly rank.

3) Increase Exposure & Backlinks

As your subscribers increase, your blog gain more exposure and your quality content gets a higher chance to be linked by other blogs. These are steps to getting more traffic to your blog when you are getting linked from other blogs. And these blogs can be those of average size and from their recommendations to your blog content, you can expect a traffic spike on your blog.


The above mention are easily attainable once you have a good amount of subscribers to your blog. You can read on what I actually did to attain this in my previous post on " 8 Tips To Increase RSS Subscribers "

These are the things that I have done to achieve this results. You can choose 4 out of the 8 tips to focus on and will also get very good results. But you must take action in order to achieve this. Don't be lazy and expect to get results.

How I Obtain 76 Backlinks On Google In 1 month - Part 2

Sorry guys for not updating my blog for 4 days but I was really busy these days as I am working on my other blogs as well. Anyway, I will post my 2nd series on how I obtain backlinks in 1 month. Another very effective way in which I build my backlinks are through internal linking. Internal linking is basically linking to other pages on your own blog.

Effectively, you are casting a vote on your own article by linking it back from other posts. Therefore, this increases the chances of obtaining backlinks on your other pages of the blog and not just the homepage. At the same time, there are many other advantages of doing internal linking.


4 Advantages Of Internal Linking


1) More exposure

When you do internal linking, you could actually dig out your older quality articles and provide value to your new readers. Most people are lazy to browse through your archive section and might miss out on posts of similar topic. Therefore, with internal linking, you make the life easier for your viewers. You have spend time to type out the articles so do no neglect the older articles and let your readers have more content to read.

2) Increase page view

We have to try to understand the mindset of internet users and try to optimize our blogs to get the best results. I have experimented with internal linking and it does increase the number of page views quite significantly. The reason for this is because the readers are looking for more information on a particular topic and by doing internal linking to olders articles of relevant content will improve the number of page views.

You often will see blogs that put up their more popular articles at their homepage to attract attention and get readers to read on them. This is also another way of internal linking which leads to increase page views and backlinks.

3) Increase Page Rank

When you do internal linking, some of the PR juice on your homepages will be link to your other pages which will in turn gain some nice PR as well. Although PR is not very significant for many bloggers, I do still recommend you to obtain a nice PR rank if your focus is on doing reviews as well as placement of text links. These are good ways to monetize your blog.

4) Improve SEOs

One of the ways to improve SEOs are through building backlinks. Therefore, internal linking is also a way to build backlinks for your other pages on your blog. This will allow the older articles on your blog to still rank reasonably well on the SERPs should you work on the internal linking of articles. This will also increase your organic traffic over time.


3 Easy Steps To Improve Internal Linking


1) Working on a series of post

You can create on a series of post to improve your internal linking. You can use this method if you think that you have too much content to write on a particular subject and should break it to 2-3 parts to faciliate easier reading for your viewers.

2) Featuring popular posts

This is also another easy way to build internal links. You can choose to feature post that gain a lot of comments and put it up on your homepage.

3) Summarize blog topics for the month

You can also create a summary every month to link to your more popular posts for the month. Alternatively, you can create an articles archive page to add in the links of your articles on it. This foster on your internal linking of blogs as well.


These are just some of the ways that are easy to improve on your internal linking. If you have not done a single linking to your other posts yet, start doing it today because it will be crucial in the long run of your blog.

Will High PR Give You Higher Traffic ?


Blogging Examination 2008


Qn 1. To what extent is high PR = High Traffic? 10 marks

If you are able to answer this question properly, I am sure you know SEOs pretty well already. Ok I shall get down to this straight away. Let's work back on what makes up a high PR. I will give a general view on what makes up high PR but you can read more at my previous post on "What is PR" and "8 tips to increase PR".

Google rate a website with high PR when there are many backlinks. In the world of Internet, backlinks work like a vote to a website. Therefore in this case, high PR = higher backlinks are true. Remember this equation becaue we will need this later.

With this we shall move on to talk about SERPs which stands for Search Engine Result Page. SERPs basically mean how well your website has rank in a particular keyword phrase that people are searching. Therefore, better SERPs = Higher traffic since you rank higher in the results page. Therefore, one of the ways to get high traffic is through better SERPs. Better SERPs is obtained by working on Search Engine Optimization (SEOs).

Building quality backlinks are one of the way to improve SEOs. Therefore, more backlinks = improve SEOs = Improved SERPs = Higher Traffic. So now looking at this equation, we know that getting backlinks will eventually help in getting more traffic although it is not directly related.

Now let's look back at our previous equation which is High PR = more backlinks. So typically our full equation will looks like this:

High PR =
more backlinks = improve SEOs = Improved SERPs = Higher Traffic

So we can say that high PR do help in getting more traffic indirectly. Therefore, do not say that having high PR is useless because it will lead to more traffic. However, you hear a lot of debates that PR are useless and not important at all. This is because focusing on improving your SEOs will eventually lead to higher PR as well. That is the reason why people prefer to improve SEOs rather than concentrate on getting PR.

But there are actually benefit of getting PR as well which is it will lead to more comments because people want to get a backlink from high PR site. Don't you wan more comments on your post too? If you don't believe me, you will see the difference once your blog get updated with PR. Hopefully mine get some nice PR rank on the next update too.

Hope this first question of blogging examination will give you better understanding on the blogging fundamentals. Stay tune for my discussion on the 2nd question.

How I Obtain 76 Backlinks On Google In 1 month - Part 1

I have mention earlier on the importance of backlinks earlier on my blog. After this 1 month plus of blogging, I find out what are the best ways to obtain backlinks that are recognised by Google. These backlinks would certainly help me in getting some juicy PR when the next Google update arrived.

This will be a series of post on how to build quality backlinks indexed by Google and this post will be on how to build quality backlinks by commenting on blogs.


Commenting On Blogs


I feel that commenting on blogs actually help me a lot in obtaining backlinks. I gave constructive comments on related topic blogs and contribute to the content of the post. If you notice, I did not comment for the sake of obtaining backlinks but instead I comment because I feel that I have something in which I could contribute to the community.

I know there are times where people deleted my comments because my comment has actually rebuked some of the content points that they have post. I know that by doing so I will risk my comment being deleted but I just don't like to just say that their post is good even though I disagree with their content. I know bloggers love to hear good comments but I do not want to deceive myself.

I personally feel there is nothing wrong if you really make a mistake in your post and someone actually corrected you. It creates a learning opportunity for yourself as well as your blog community. I urge all bloggers to be more "open" and be ready to accept criticism.

However, there are difference between commenting on a "dofollow" and a "nofollow" blog. Read on for more details.


"DoFollow" Vs "NoFollow"


It is always better to comment on blogs that are "dofollow" in order to get backlinks. What is "dofollow"? It is basically a term to describe whether a website allow spiders to crawl weblinks that are shown on the page. So for example, when you comment on a "dofollow" blog with your web URL attached to the comment, Google's spider that crawl the "dofollow" blog will crawl to yours as well due to the web URL you have left in the comment section. The "nofollow" blog works directly the opposite.

I know the next question would probably be how would I know if the blog is "dofollow" or "nofollow". I personally use Firefox as my internet browser because I love the plug ins that are available. In this case, I used a plug in from ZacheryFox's . This plug in will highlight links on the website that are "nofollow" or "dofollow" with different colour codes. Pink highlighted links mean "nofollow" while violet highlighed links mean "dofollow". I recommend using this plug in because it will be easier to identify the nature of the links and you can do it just by browsing the website with this plug in on.

I have to admit that I am not very technical abled and do not know how I could help you if you are using IE as your internet browser. Anyone here using IE that will be able to help me with this?


3 Reasons Why People Use "NoFollow"


1) Paid Links

Google hates paid links and therefore blogs that actually put paid links on their site will usually be "nofollow". Paid links are links paid by the owner of the link to place it on another website usually with high PR. This is because they want to get some quality backlinks from high PR websites in the easier way in which this case is by paying. As a result, Google advises blog to set to the "NoFollow" attribute in which the paid link will not get any PR juice but will still received traffic from it.

2) Prevent Comment Spams

Many bloggers know that they can get some great backlinks if they leave their URL on the comment section of other blogs. As a result, they will go around just to promote their website in other blog's comment section instead of providing constructive comments. These group of people are also the cause to why blogs begin to take the "nofollow" attributes.

3) For you to discuss and let me know. Think about this and post in the comments to share with the rest. If you are wondering, my blog is a "DoFollow" blog.

My Traffic Went Down =(

Recently my traffic went slightly down. I was getting almost 250 unique visitors daily on average on the first and second week of August. But now I am currently having only 150 visitors daily. What went wrong??? Quite sad to say that but I just want to show the facts of my blog. Hopefully you all would not run away from my blog just because my results have dropped slightly.

I am not an internet guru that you all think I am or may be. I am also learning on the process of blogging. But the drop in traffic has really startled me this few days and I begin to worry. Maybe because I am getting lazy to market my blog. So please don't be learn this from me. :)

I will try to pick my traffic up again and try to go back to my 300 unique visitors daily. Will update you guys again when my traffic shoots up. Hopefully the contest will help to pick up some traffic. This are the list of things that I did not do recently and resulted in the drop of traffic:

1) Not participating in any social bookmarking sites like digg, bloggingzoom
2) Not being active in the forums I used to visit
3) Lastly, not posting any more new articles to ezinearticles.com

But I am glad that my RSS feed count are shooting up. Currently at 132 subscribers. I know you all might feel bored reading at this kind of post but I really want to tell you guys on my error which is being lazy and hope you all don't follow me.

My weekly alexa ranking have decreased from 195,000 to 290,000 at the moment. I will do my best this few days to bring it down. Way to go man Wei Liang!!

What Is RSS


RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is used to subscribe to the feed of a website and by doing so you do not need to go to visit the website to read the latest content. In layman terms, it becomes like a 2nd duplicate blog. Contents that are found on the actual URL of the blog can be seen in the RSS feed as well. You can find many websites with the RSS technology and it is usually represented by a orange button which looks like the one on the left.


How Does It Benefit User


There are so many blogs and websites on the Internet nowadays and are always updating their content every now and then. However, let's say if you like to keep track of the content for 20 different websites, does it means that you will bookmarked them and check on it every single day for updates?

This makes life difficult for the users because they do not want to miss out any content that the website has updated but at the same time it is too troublesome for them to check the websites everyday for updates. Therefore, that is when RSS will come into play and solve this situation.

When you subscribe to the RSS of a website, you leave the job of tracking for updates to the RSS. Whenever there is an update on the website that you subscribe to, it will send a notification to the RSS. Therefore, instead of checking 1 by 1 on the 20 websites that you liked, you will instantly know when there are updates if you subscribe to their RSS.


How To View RSS


Special programs are required to view the RSS and they are known as 'RSS aggregators' or in my terms I called these programs RSS readers. You need these programs in order to read the RSS. There are so many programs that you can find on the Internet and the more commonly used ones are Google Reader, My Yahoo and Bloglines. You can sign up with them and view the RSS with it.

Other than the RSS readers, you can also subscribe to the RSS via email if the option is given. You can see that I provided this option on the top right corner of my blog. Therefore, whenever there is an update on my blog, an email will be send to you to notify you.


How To Subscribe RSS


When you click on my RSS feed, you will be taken to a page which looks like this:



The area where I circle in red is the RSS readers in which you have sign up for. Choose the RSS readers or you could even subscribe to RSS via email in which I mention earlier on. Once you have completed this process, you have successfully subscribed to the RSS and your RSS reader will be notified whenever there is an update on the website. Therefore, you are only required to check your RSS reader instead of going to the individual website 1 by 1.

8 Tips To Increase Your RSS Subsciptions

RSS means Really Simple Syndication which is used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries. RSS makes it easier for people who want to get content update from a particular website automatically. Instead of checking on the website manually, RSS will update on the RSS reader that you have used like Google Reader, Bloglines etc.

You might ask why not you just bookmarked the website? Yes, you can do it but bookmark will not show you if the website has any updates. To make it convenient for users, it will be easier to subscribe to RSS which is commonly known as the blog's feed to let the RSS do the updating of websites. I will do another post on what exactly RSS is but this is just a rough introduction only.


Why Do You Want Good RSS Subscription Figures


I find RSS subscriptions a form of social proof to your readers which will tell them that there is actually people reading your content. When there is at least 50 subscribers, people dropping by to your blog might actually stop and read on your content. Human actually act in a very unique way in which they love to follow the crowd. So when this is applied over to RSS subscriptions, high RSS subscriptions will capture the new unique visitors attention and get them to read the content of your blog. Therefore, this gives your blog a chance to showcase the quality content that you have. Read more on how to increase your RSS.


8 Tips To Increase RSS Subscriptions


1) Make your RSS button prominent

I often see blogs with RSS button not placed above the first fold of the website. When I say first fold, I mean the blog area in which readers do not need to scroll down. This actually makes a difference because your readers might be lazy to scroll down all the way to find your RSS button. Therefore placing right on top of your website is the best spot. You can take my website as an example where I placed my RSS on the top right of the site. Get bigger RSS button will also increase the chances that readers will subscribe to your blog.

2) Provide alternative RSS subscription

New readers who just come into contact with blogs might not know what RSS is all about. Therefore, they might not know what the RSS buttons are for. Provide an email RSS subscription option for your readers which is the more traditional way for users. If you are new to blogging, you read on my earlier post on guide to inserting the email RSS subscription here.

3) Educate your readers on RSS

Like what I mention earlier, your readers might just come into contact with blogging and have no idea what RSS is. Therefore, you can write a post on RSS and placed a link right under your RSS button. This will allow your readers to know and understand what RSS is and how it works. At the same time, this increases the chance that they might subscribe to your blog.

4) Remind readers to subscribe to feed

You can add a link to your RSS feed at the end of every post to remind readers to subscribe to your RSS feed if they like your post. I started doing this a few days ago and it seems to work for my blog. People need to be reminded to get them to take the action which in this case is subscribing to our RSS feeds.

5) Run a contest

You can run a contest to encourage readers to subscribe to your RSS feed. This is a very effective method to increase RSS subscriptions as I have seen it to work on many blogs. You need to give away rewards when running the contest and it can be in terms of monetary rewards, products that you have, free review of website, free advertising spot on your website, Entrecard credits or any other things you can offer that is of value.

6) Give-away to your readers

You can give away an E-Book that you written to lure your readers to subscribe to your feed. This incentive will bring your readers forward to subscribe to your feed should they be hesitating to do so. But this give-away that you provide your readers will make them subscribe immediately.

7) Post series of content

You can consider to post a series of content for your niche. For example, in my case I can do a series of post on ways to increase traffic and split it into 4 parts. This will encourage readers to subscribe to your feed because they do not want to miss this series of your post

8) Guest post

Go around blogs of your similar niche and ask if they would like you to do a guest post. However, you will need to prove to them that you have quality content and ideas. Show them your blog and let them know the kind of articles that you produced. This not only will increase your RSS subscriptions but also the traffic to your blog.


This is what I will be doing to increase my RSS subscriptions in which some are already in place. I got results from doing some of the tips and have gotten 81 subscribers for a 5 week blog. Not too bad but I know could have been better.

What about you? Do you have any other ways to share to increase RSS subscriptions?

5 Biggest Mistakes In Blogging

There are several issues in which I discovered in bloggers especially those that are new in the industry. If you notice, there are a large number of blogs created that claim to teach users how to make money online but most of the content that they posted are crap. They are either trying their luck on this niche or copying a successful blogger's model. Well, maybe it works for a while but definitely not long.

New bloggers often do not think hard enough on this and just plunge into creating this topic on making money online, thinking that they can earn some extra income. If you decided to follow the crowd on creating such niche, do at least have a certain amount of knowledge before starting on it because you will definitely not last long. Let us discuss on the common mistakes that bloggers did.


1) Thinking That Blogging Can Get Rich


This is what often happens when new bloggers just got started. They have the kind of mentality that blogging can get them rich because they saw how the other bloggers have done it. Yes, I do agree that blogging can get you a full-time income but it comes with effort and the amount of time you are willing to put into it. There are articles written that say they are earning 5 figure income from just 2-3 hours of work per day and this statement "WOW" many new bloggers. As a result, they started doing the exact same thing because this looks like the most "IN" thing in the Internet now. If you think this way, my advice is to quit blogging because this will not be your cup of tea.

Blogging is like a business in which you need to plan the strategy and approach. You have to learn on what blogging is all about before you can even think of succeeding in this field. Work this out on a mind map and brainstorm hard on what you want to achieve from blogging before you actually rush into this.


2) Not Learning Information From Multiple Sources



I recommend bloggers to learn from a few sources instead of just one. Read on the blog of those that have already established themselves as a Guru in that niche as well as those that are rising or proving that they have knowledge in this niche. In this case, you can find out what are the elements that are lacking in those blogs and you can utilise this to become your unique selling point.

Many would definitely neglect this stage because they are too obsessed with the amount of money that they think they could earn from blogging and put all their effort in just trying to set up a blog. This will be plain silly because there is no difference in your blog compared to the rest. There are so many newsletters and e-zines in which you can get for free and work into it. This will give you a rough guide on what kind of information has already been repeated a lot of times and you would try to avoid going into the same path.


3) Copying Instead Of Innovating


If you noticed, there are many blogs of the same niche and talking about the same content. Instead of refining and adding in more creative and juicy content, new bloggers just merely write the exact same content from other blogs but they just write it in a slightly different way. Do you think this will give you any uniqueness in your blog?

The answer is no. Every single business must have their own unique selling point before attracting the masses to your product or content. Therefore, I consider copying is a taboo in the blogging world. Create your own unique content for your readers so that they find their time worthwhile to read your post.


4) Poor Time Management


From what I have observed, new bloggers are often very much focused on the results of their blogs. What I meant was they are too concerned in issues like how much traffic they are getting, how much sales they have made etc. They go through all the statistics webpage that they have joined and view on the visitors information etc. This sometimes take them close to 1-2 hours just on this alone. As a result, they are left with very little time for content and marketing.

I am not trying to say that you should neglect tracking your results but instead prioritise on what are the more important issues that you should attend to first. In this case, the most important errands that every blogger should do first is creating quality content. Do not lose focus on content creation because this is often what that keeps your visitor coming back again.

Unless you are trying to tell me that you are a full time blogger and you have lots of time to spare, then by all means do what you want. But many bloggers are doing this as a part-time income and therefore should manage their time better so that the content and marketing aspects are well met.


5) Being Lazy Too Early


I know many bloggers want to achieve internet business or blogging to become their full time income. And they have seen how the other successful bloggers have earn 5 figure income from just 2-3 hours of work. Therefore, they thought that this applies to them as well. But do you know that every successful blogger work very hard at the beginning of their journey. They do not work just 2-3 hours a day but in fact some work close to 16 hours a day.

They work hard for their financial freedom and they are only enjoying the life of freedom after 1-2 years of hard work. So wake up and be more sensible as well as realistic. Plan and manage your time well to achieve whatever that you want to do for the day. Don't be lazy and post on your blog once every week. My advice is to try to create at least 3 quality posts every week and stick to this plan. You can even come out with a work schedule which you want to achieve daily. I have one myself and I try my very best to stick to it unless I am really tied up at school.


This are based on my observations and you may agree or disagree on this. Do comment in if you violently object to what I have discussed. Do reflect if you are doing the mistakes that I have said.

Lastly, its weekend again. Enjoy yourselves.

Creating An Email Subscription Opt In Box

A short post on creating an Email subscription Opt In Box. For those that do not know how to add this to your blogger blog, do read on for the step by step guide on this.


What Is The Purpose Of Email Subscription Box


This provides an alternative for users because there might be times where they do not know what are the ways to subscribe to your blog except through Email. Therefore, we need to use a more traditional way to allow the users to subscribe to our blog.

This also eliminates the user confusion on what the different feed readers like Google Reader, Bloglines are about since you have created another alternative for them which is through Email.


How To Add


First, you need to have a feedburner account first. I am sure most of you would have this. After which go to the Publicize Tab as shown in the image circled in blue below. Click on it followed by the Email Subscription tab in which I have circled in red .


After which, you need to copy the code provided. Proceed on to your Blogger dashboard at www.blogger.com and go to My Layout tab. Click on it and you will come the Page Elements sub tab. Click on the add a gadget which looks like the image below.



Select on the HTML/Javascript and paste the entire code that you copy earlier on from FeedBurner.


Go back to your Feedburner and click on the activate button which can be found right at the bottom of the Email Subscription Tab.

Users can now subscribe through email to your blog. You can also test by keying in your own email to see if it works. A newsletter email opt in box is also equally important and I will be going more indepth into it some time later.

Review on CreditBurner

It has been quite some time in which I post another source of income of you guys. Hopefully the previous sources that I introduce have work out for you. Ok now let's move on to another source of income which is CreditBurner.

Some people ask me " Hey Wei Liang, do you get a cut in introducing us the programs? " My answer is yes because I get referrals to join program and in turn I will be getting certain amount of commissions for that. And this is what I want the rest of you to do as well. Once you have join this particular money network and use it, review it and let the rest of your readers know about this as well. In turn you could earn some commissions by referring them to the program too.

Then again some people ask me " Hey Wei Liang, why don't you cloak your affliate links? " To me, I find it not necessary to do so because I do not want to hide the fact that I am an affliate of the program. If people do not want to sign up under you, no matter how you hide or cloak the link, they will still stand by their same decision.

Ok I shall cut the crap and start my review on CreditBurner.


What Is CreditBurner


CreditBurner is a PTP (Paid to Promote) network system. This means that you will be paid by promoting some advertisements assigned by them. They have various forms of advertising which include banners and link texts. Basically it is like putting up some advertisements and earning some credits from it.


How Does CreditBurner Works


It is different from the pay per click advertising in which you need people to click on your ads to earn some money. In this program, they will paying you by per 1000 impressions. Per 1000 impressions mean you need to expose your blog or websites to 1000 visitors and you will be paid for that. You do no require the visitors to click on the ads for you to earn.

There are different payment for different forms of ads that you put up. For example, if you put up banner ads like the one below, you will be earning about $1 per 1000 impressions. Placing banners are one of the more lower paid ads to put up.


However, if you decided to put up ads in which CreditBurner called Treasure Ads which is something like banner ads but much more bigger in size, you will be paid from $2.00 to $50.00 per 1000 impressions. On top of this, you could be paid with additional $1.50 to $25.00 for the secret treasures - this is also the reason why CreditBurner called it Treasure Ads. Different advertisers might be paying different amount for 1 exposure of the ads. Therefore, there is a range of amount that you could be paid.

You can also refer publishers to them in which you can earn 14% commission from whatever your referral earns. This also another way of earning extra income from this program. This program requires very low payout which is only USD $2.50. I think this is another channel in which bloggers can earn money for a start as well.


How It Benefit You


This is especially beneficial for those that have difficulty in earning from Google Adsense because you need people to click on the ads for you to earn some money. Using this program, you don't have to worry if people click on the ads or not because it would not affect the amount that you will earn. As long as there are traffic to your blog, you will earn some cash from it.

I find this program another good alternative to Google Adsense if it is not converting cash for you. Do try this out and see how it works for you.

If you are keen to try this program, you can sign up through my link here.

What Is SEOs

Search Engine Optimization ( SEOs ) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a website from search engines via organic search results for targeted keywords. What does this exactly mean? Simply put, this means improving the position of your webpage or blogs in the search engine result page ( SERPs ). For example, my previous post on how I top google search result ranking is an example of SEOs.


Why Is SEOs Important


We need to refer back to the definitions on SEOs which is the process of improving quality traffic from search engines. With this, we know that better SEOs would mean that our page would rank higher in a particular keyword search. The higher your site is on the list of SERPs, the higher the chances that it will be seen which also means more traffic for your website or blog.

If you are able to get your site to rank on the 1st page in a particular keyword search, the chances of visitors coming to your site is higher. I am saying this because I put myself into the searcher's shoes and I know that I would seldom go into the 2nd page of the search results. And because of this kind of mindset, SEOs are a very important criteria to improve on for all websites.

Of course, SEOs are not the only criteria to rank high on the SERPs because Google PR plays a part in this as well. After reading this post, do read my previous post on tips to improve your Google PR.


Two forms Of SEOs


There are 2 forms of SEOs. One which is using keyword density and the other using images. Keyword density basically means how many times a particular keywords appear on your website. However, do be careful that you do not purposely spam the keyword as this will cause Google to penalise you instead. Keep the keyword density below 5% . You can get more information regarding this on my previous post.

Using images is another form to improve your SEOs. People do go online to search for images and keywords are use to match the images. There are also image search engines to make it easier for people to look for what they want. Therefore, you could actually post the image to the search engine to improve on your SEOs. The major image search engines are actually Google, Picsearch and Yahoo. This is also another approach in which you can explore in to get traffic if your topic allows you to post a lot of images.


Two Approaches To SEOs


There are actually 2 approaches to improve SEOs - White Hat SEOs and Black Hat SEOs. Basically from the word itself, I am sure you can deduce which is the wiser approach to choose. Anyway, I will explain on the 2 approaches.

By definition, White Hat SEOs are websites that try to follow all of the search engine guidelines to optimize its site. At the same time, White Hat SEOs also ensure that the content a search engines indexes is the same content as what the reader sees on the webpage itself. You might be thinking what does this exactly mean but don't worry because once I tell you about Black Hat SEOs, you will automatically understand this portion. Therefore, it is said the White Hat SEOs create content for the web users and not for the search engines.

Black Hat SEOs on the hand trys to improve its web ranking in ways that do not follow the search engines guidelines. For the case of Black Hat SEOs, the content shown to the web users and search engines are different. A method called cloaking which causes the content to be different between web users and search engines. There are too much technical aspects in this in which I shall not say too much into this.

The consequences of using Black Hat SEOs would be rather heavy once it has been found by Google. Google PR would be reduced or even the whole index of the webpage is taken off from Google. That is how serious Black Hat SEOs can be so avoid on this. If you intend to engage SEOs expertise to help on your website, I suggest you do research on the company first because deciding on their service because you never know if they are actually engaging on the correct SEOs method.


2 Brief Ways to Improve SEOs


Improving SEOs can be categorised into 2 ways - On Page SEO and Off Page SEO.

On page SEOs basically means actions in which you can take on your own website to improve in the SERPs. This can generally be done through niche keyword selection, usage of meta tags and even images.

Off page SEOs means the creation of quality backlinks to your website. Similarly, you can read more regarding backlinks here.

I will be giving more detailed post on how to improve your SEOs later on. Post in my comments on what you think can improve your SEOs and I will tell you whether are you on the right track or not.

It is getting quite late here and I guess I got to go catch my sleep. Enojy reading :)

Submitting Blogger Sitemap To Google

Hi all. Creating this post for my buddy chethan who is asking how to submit a blogger sitemap to Google. Therefore, I might as well share this with the rest of you guys who might not know what to do. The purpose of submitting a blogger sitemap to Google Webmasters Tools is to make it easier for Google to find and index our page. Please be aware that submitting sitemap has no direct effect on the Google PR.

Firstly, go create an account with Google Webmasters Tools. The first time that you login into Webmasters Tools, you will need to key in your blog URL. After which, you need to verify that this is your site.



Click on the Manage site verification and there are 2 ways in which you can verify. The first one is by creating the indicated HTML file and the other is to add the meta tag. Due to the fact that we could not create a HTML as it need to be uploaded to the root directory, we need to use Meta Tag method.

Copy the Meta Code that is generated. Next go to your Blogger Dashboard and click on Layout followed by Edit HTML. Place the Meta code directly below the head tag which is something like this:


If you can't find the head tag, you can press Ctrl+F and search for it. Once done, go back to Google Webmaster Tools and clicked on the verify button.

Ok now we are all set and ready to use Google Webmasters Tools. You can get an overview of when your website is crawled by Google, how many of your site is indexed etc. But most imporantly, you can see what are you Top Search Queries. Top Search Queries basically means that your site actually appeared on Google search results when people are searching for a particular query or keyword. You could also see your position in the search engine results. Therefore, you could work on that particular keyword which will improve on your SEOs. I will touch on this more when I post regarding SEOs.

Next go to Sitemaps and click on add sitemap. Select add a general web sitemap.

Add this as your sitemap address:



http://yourblog.blogspot.com/atom.xml?redirect=false


Ta Dah! Your sitemap has been submitted to Google and you will expect Google spider to reach your blog more often.

Enjoy your day guys :)

Tips To Improve Alexa Ranks

Alexa is a subsidary of Amazon.com is a website which provides information on the traffic levels for websites. Alexa is also one of the largest web ranking system in the Internet.

Alexa Rank is measured according to the number of users who have visited a website and with the alexa toolbar installed on their browser.

Alexa rank is shown in numerical figures in which the smaller figures meant that the websites have higher traffic. You can take a look at my alexa ranking here.


Why Is Alexa Rank Important


This becomes important when you want to monetize your blogs by selling advertisements space and text link to advertiser or ads network. They often use Alexa Rank as a gauge to whether it is worth the money to buy the advertisement spots on your blog. Lower Alexa Rank would also mean that you have ask for a better offer from the advertisers.

ReviewMe and Text Link Ads are examples of ad networks that placed importance on Alexa Rank.


What You Need To Do First


That depends on the type of browser you are using. For those using Internet Explorer, you can download the toolbar here. And for those using Firefox, you can download this add-ons called the Search Status which displays Alexa Rank, Google PR and many other useful features.

I personally think Search Status is easier because it does not take up an additional space on your browser. You can see clearly from the picture on the right how Search Status looks like which occupy only the bottom right corner of your browser.

You can also check your blog's keyword density, number of backlinks and the indexed pages on the various search engines. I feel that this is a very good SEOs tool that all bloggers should have.


Tips To Improve Alexa Rank


With some knowledge on what Alexa is, we will now look at how we can improve our Alexa Rank. The below mention tips are what have been said by webmasters that it works so you have to try it to see if it works for your case. However, I feel that as long as you produce quality content, your traffic will start coming in slowly. I always believe quality content is the key to draw the readers' attention.


1) Install Alexa Toolbar or Search Status

After doing which, you need to set your blog as the homepage. This is said to work by many webmasters but I am not really sure but you could try it. However, I do have doubt on this method because if this is the case, then many people would just keep re-entering their own blog in hope to increase the Alexa Rank. Or maybe there is a system on Alexa counting the daily unique visitor on their ranking system.

2) Put an Alexa rank widget on your webpage

Leave the widget on your blog and every click on the widget is said to be counted as a visit even when visitors do not have the Alexa Toolbar or Search Status installed. I am currently in the process of trying this out but I seldom got any clicks on the widget. My guess would be because visitors nowadays know the importance of Alexa Rank and have it already installed and are no longer fascinated by the new term "Alexa Rank"

3) Participate in Webmasters Forum

Leave constructive opinion on the webmaster forum and create a signature to put your blog URL link in. This webmasters would usually have Alexa Toolbar installed and might give a visit to your blog. You definitely must participate in Digital Point Forum as the discussions in there are of good quality and you could also contribute your point of view.

4) Use of Social Bookmarking

Produce quality article or post. When your post get submitted to Digg or StumbleUpon, you would get some quality visitors to your blog.

5) PPC Campaigns

You could also pay to get traffic from PPC advertising company like Google Adwords and Bidvertiser. This is definitely the fastest way but also the most costly way to get traffic.

6) Quality Content

This would work doubly good if your blog is about webmasters resource like blogging tips and internet marketing. This is because visitors that come to your blog are those that most probably know about Alexa Rank and are finding ways to improve it.


This are basically the tips that you could use to improve your Alexa Rank. However, do not expect it to drop to below 100,000 overnight because it takes some time. My advice would be to produce quality content for your readers and I assure you that your Alexa Rank will improved by the end of 2nd month. Producing quality content is the passive way to build up on your Alexa Rank.

That is basically what I have for Alexa Rank. Do give it a try and monitor on the results. Have fun blogging.

Social Networking Media - Plurk

Just thought I would want to share with you guys on this Plurk. This is another social media in which I have just joined. You could interact with people all over the whole and it works like twitter. But, I find this very much more interesting compared to twitter.



Basically, it works on a timeline and you can key in whatever you want in the textbox. After which it will appear on the timeline and you can choose to show it to the rest of the plurk community. You could also tell people that you have a new post on your blog and people might just click on it to see it.

I hope to see you in there should you have spare time to meddle with yet another social media. By the way, is there anyone of you here already a plurk member? Do comment on how you find this social media because I'm relatively new in this.

Articles Archives

I have decided to do an article archives so that it will be a breeze to browse through my blog without having to search high and low for it. I recommend you guys to do it too because it will look more organised to your readers.
