How To Make Blog, Setting Up a Blog Correctly
I'm not an IM expert, I'm not even making good money yet, I'm a total newbie, got into this whole "make money online" a few years ago with the intention to well... make money! As a total newbie, starting your own blog, I want to dig deep into Internet Marketing and figure out all the secrets.
So anyway when I started out I got terrified of the blackhat methods available online. I didn't want to be seen anywhere near those sites. Also I had a great plan – I'll just buy a new (non-keyword) related address, make a blog (I found out what WordPress was later) and post an article a day promoting Clickbank product I found interesting. After that millions will just start rolling in, yeah! Rock solid and brilliant plan.
Here's how to write blogs avoiding the following mistakes a blogger should.
- Having the click-button “make-money-instantly mentality
- Keyword stuffing the newly created word press site my keyword density was around 10
- Not buying a used domain that would both be cheaper and I shouldn’t wait for it to age
- Blasting the same new domain with tools like Senuke & Scrapebox without proxies and with comments like "Yeah great site!" (of course using my keyword as the name while doing it)
- Not making a .txt files of my links, user names and account addresses
- Keeping my important files all over the computer and unsorted
- Not understanding Google is all about diversity and randomness
- Spending time/money/energy jumping form one new money making technique to the next without sticking with the plan long enough to see if it will work for me or not.
- Spending time and money promoting Clickbank products I should of let go before 1000 hops – no sales
- Making 10 links and checking my new Google rating every 5 minutes
- Believing what I read/see in software/education materials sales copy
- Believing what other people say about software's and techniques and dropping what I'm doing just because somebody, somewhere said that it sucks or rocks
- Same goes for outsourcing "yes, a lot of people do deliver, but take a few minutes and ran the links through scrapebox or manually check them (also post a review whenever you buy sth. to help out other members of the forum)
- Believing product creators that their product converts over 5% (yeah,right)
- Not believing in the power of article marketing (and I don't mean just article directories but also the web 2.0) and the proven techniques cause they require work and dedication
- Almost killing myself over the first Google dance (well not literally but you get the point)
- Obsessing over details and spending time trying to figure it out instead of taking action and getting experience paralysis by analysis
- Not taking enough time to learn how to utilize the new software's I crossed path with and then calling them useless or not effective.
- This might be the biggest one – not trusting my instincts and being afraid of trying out the new stuff
- NOT TAKING ACTION!
