I was Number One On Problogger

Image via Wikipedia Yes I was number one, but not the way you think. Ages ago I read a post on Garry Conn Dot Com on how you could get a whole heap of traffic to your blog from leaving just one comment. The idea is that if you are the very first person to comment on a blog, and if that comment was meaningful and related to the original post you would be bound to get a whole lot of visitors from people reading the post. The other day I was able to put the theory to the test because I actually was the first person to comment on Problogger’s 12 Tips To SNAP Readers Out of Passivity with Calls to Action! I couldn’t believe my luck, and in my rush to to beat everybody else, the comment probably wasn’t as good as it could of been. But heck,…

There is one thing that almost every blogger wants and that is to make their blog more profitable. There are many ways that you can make money via your blog other than by doing paid posts. The most used method is by displaying Google Adsense on your blog. As you get paid every time someone clicks on an ad you want to make sure that you place it in a prominent position on your blog. Adsense is a great way of generating a passive income. Obviously the more visitiors you get the greater the potential of earning money via your google adsense and some other systems I will now mention. Only recently I have been trialing another system similar to Google Adsense which is called Chitika. I must say that I am very impressed as so far it is producing 90% of Google’s income. The best thing is that you…

How To Make A Monthly Income With Your Blog

I read somewhere that those blogs that hit the top do so because the blogger provides the reader something that they desire, and they do it for free. It could be many things including interesting articles, competitions, tips and tricks of the trade, but whatever it is, it is of value to the person visiting the blog. Unfortunately, bloggers like myself do not have the means to run competitions or give away prizes and such, and so we have to rely on the quality of our content or the passing on of valuable information to our readers. This may included blogging techniques or tips and tricks, and on occasions it can even be a way for increasing their blogging or webmaster revenue, which is what this post is all about. I have just come across a particular site that is going to guarantee me a monthly income. This site is…

Do You Want More People Commenting On Your Blog?

When looking back at my blogs I get the feeling that although I am doing all the right things and most of my blogs are getting lots of hits, very few people are taking the time to comment. Now if you’re like me you just have to agree that getting comments virtually breathes life into a blog. Without comments it’s sort of like talking to the wind. If we think of our blog as a room and the readers as visitors to that room then perhaps getting that initial comment would be like what would happen when someone breaks the silence and a conversation ensues. So, what we need is a way to break the ice, and what better way than to offer an incentive and the incentive that I have in mind is that we return the favor by commenting on a post on their blog. Considering the vast…

The F Word, When No Other Word Will Do

Image via Wikipedia You may have recalled from one of my previous posts how I said that hosting your own blogs gave you more freedom? Well this is completely true in regards to censorship. I’ve had many posts/articles deleted from community sites because there were some there who were offended or even found it distasteful. Heck I even had the word SEX censored to S*X! Nope I am not kidding, now you tell me how anyone could find sex distasteful? Hosting my own blogs gives me the opportunity to post what I want, but even so I would not post anything that I felt my readers would find ‘distasteful’ as I want to entice people to read my posts not scare them away! So even though I am able to use the ever popular F word, a word that Gordon Ramsay has made famous, I choose not too, as I…

Joining The Crazy Blogging For Money Train

Once you’ve been surfing the net for awhile you tend to notice that just about everybody is trying to make some cash and they are usually trying to con people like you and me out of our hard earned cash. There is one simple rule that I go buy and that is, if it sounds too good to be true, it generally is. The thing is that you can make money on the net and you don’t have to rip people off to do it. An honest way of earning some spare cash on the Internet is by blogging. Now don’t you give me that, ‘that’s bullshit’ look because it’s true and some blog like Problogger.net are bringing in over $100,000 per year! Before you get your hopes too high, very few of us will get to see that sort of cash, but that is no reason why we shouldn’t…

Blogs Are A Great Way To Show Off Your Photos

I have found that the problem with photos is that once taken and developed (or because of the digital era, stored on your computer) they are by and large filed away and forgotten about. Every once in awhile you may take some out to show friends and visitors but by and large you only see them on very rare occasions. A blog is a great avenue for you to share your photos with the world and who knows you may even get requests to buy one or two. Whilst most people use flickr.com as a medium to store their photos online I prefer photrade.com as it gives me the added bonus of earning a little cash on the side. This particular photo was taken with my Minolta i700 on one of those rare holidays. My wife and I decided to drive to Melbourne via The great Ocean Road which had…

Wassup? I Have An Online Tipping Jar

Tipping is something that Americans are very familiar with. You normally tip a person for performing a service that you are very satisfied with. The amount of the tip may be a percentage of the bill or it may be at the discretion of the tipper, and usually the better the service the larger the tip. Bloggers may be seen by many as providing a service and that service is by an large the passing on of information. Unfortunately except the various ‘please donate’ badges there hasn’t really been a way for the reader to tip the blogger for the service provided. Thanks to Scratchback.com I am now have a virtual online tipping jar where the reader can now reward me if they feel that they have acquired something of worth form any of my posts. There is one major difference and that is that tippers are also rewarded for…
