In the past blogging used to be reserved for those who had a little technically expertise, because creating a webpage and then pushing it online took a little technical know-how to do so.
However, with the newer CMS platforms like WordPress, it has become a 100 times easier to do, without knowing a single lick of HTML.
It’s one thing to start a blog, but it’s not so easy to make money from a blog.
Cause if it was easy, then, why isn’t every man and his dog making money hand over fist from blogging?
Well the answer is simple, it’s because a blog is merely a publishing tool that will get content out into the big world wide web, however, gettting your content seen by people is a totally different kettle of fish.
This is where SEO comes into the picture.
And whilst Google tells webmasters to just write great content and traffic will come, the truth is, you can pour your guts out and create the best flipping content out there, but it doesn’t guarantee that anyone is gonna see it.
Conversely, you can create the worst content out there, but if you understand the principles behind ranking a webpage in Google then you’ll have an easier time getting people to read your shit.
If your writing is crap it’s no gonna matter if you’re on the front page of Google or not, because visitors are not gonna compelled enough to make a purchase.
Therefore you need to find a happy medium.
And whadday ya know.
You can actually get away with writing sub-par content and still get it ranked in Google and make sales.
This is the essences of making a living online blogging.
Find keyword phrases that people are typing into Google and then write a post on your blog that will rank for that keyword phrase.
There – easy peasy.
Write and rank enough of these pages and you’ll soon start to make money.
The more you do, the more you can make until you are making a full-time living from it.
