Making Money Online

By: Muna wa Wanjiru

In the first part of these series, i mentioned ezinearticles as one of the most important sources of traffic to a webmaster. Yes, you can expect enough targeted traffic to make money online, live comfortably, pay your numerous bills and actually be independent as you command authority in your niche by only writing for ezinearticles. The reason for these is simple, these site has a current google rank of "6" and an alexa rank of around 400. These means that the Google search engine robot visits it a couple of times every day looking for fresh content that is published here and in 90% of the cases ranks the information within the first ten results of its pages. If you publish the same information on a rank two or three or four web site for that matter, chances are that you might never see it on google first page.


You do not only need to write though, you can submit links pointing to your site in another very interesting way. Having a lot of links pointing to your website from a lot of authority sites i.e. sites with a page rank of "5" and above, makes your site climb the rankings in the search engines as well. The Google search robot comes to these sites more often and spiders them more deeply than if you were, say, focusing your efforts on article syndication alone. The two best examples that i use daily are technorati and icerocket. Every time you publish an article on your site, create some tags for your keywords pointing to icerocket and technorati repctively. These article is about how to make money online, to tag technorati you need to place a tag like this within your post http://www.technorati.com/tags/make+money+online, and an icerocket tag will look like this http://www.icerocket.com/tags/make+money+online. Both these sites need to be referenced from your site in order for them to spider it. But doing these will ensure that your tugged keyword is placed near the top of their pages, thus guaranteeing you the traffic that you need.?


Before we go to part three of these series, it would be prudent for me at this time to inform you of the second most important tactic that i use to make money online. You may not be privy to these but at this point you may want to know that there are two different types of websites that saturate the web i.e. the static and the dynamic website. A static website is the most common. The information on this kind of site does not change and it does not improve once the owner uploads the site on his server. It stays constant. Then there is the new version of websites taking the web by storm. These are refered to as blog based websites. I use Wordpress, it is a very stong content management system, if you really know how to use it. These platform allows me to interact with ezinearticles, technorati, icerocket and others in ways that would not be possible with a static site.

Search engines love blogs, it is the freshness of their content that brings their spiders to blogs. People love them also as they build communities around the various niches, and as you may well know, an interacting community is targeted and ready to buy your products since your credibility is guaranteed. I will have to advise you here though, download the recent wordpress software at their site. At this time that am writing this, the most recent is 2.5.1, the wordpress hosted blog has so many limitations and will not work well for you since you may not be able to tweak it in a way that will not be noticeable to your clients. Stay tuned for part 3 of how i make money online.
