The Art of Blogging for a Living.


If you’re looking for a doumbek is a good site. Let me tell you I think this is one of the best places online to find it. They are a well known site for many years and thousands of customers. Their site is very professional and secure and they have a huge selection of new and used musical products for a price that is hard to beat. I would check them out first if you want a musical instrument.

Anchor Text IS Really your Actual Title

I have a couple blogs that are in a small niche, yet extremely competitive.  It is usually how I am able to observe a lot of stuff that others can’t, which is where I learn most of my SEO insight.  I was noticing that my sites in this niche were ranking very high for major keywords, even though other sites had the same keywords, higher Pagerank, and had been around much longer with a lot more inbound links.  In fact some of the other competitors wouldn’t even rank in the first 10 pages, while I could get on page 2! By the way my sites are less than 8 months old.

The major difference that could explain why I ranked better was because they were referencing their site by their name. This is a HUGE mistake. Whenever you build a backlink, alway  try to have descriptive anchor text instead of your site name.  Having your name or website title is usually not what you want, since no one on the net is looking for Joe Blow or Joe Blow’s Blog.  They are looking for generic highly searched keywords.

Search engines learned a long time ago that simply making your domain and title on a major keyword is not enough to get you to the top. If you want to rank really high for that keyword, you MUST use anchor text too.  This is much harder  to do, but it’s less biased because it allows 3rd party sites to give a description of your site everytime they link to it. Anchor Text is really what the search engines see as your websites “Title”.

Diversify your advertising on your blog

I believe that gearing your website exclusively around one advertiser, for most it’s Google Adsense, is a huge mistake. Diversification into multiple types of ad systems is the best way to go for most websites. As the saying goes, do not put all your eggs in one basket. The same is true for website advertising.

One reason why you don’t want to rely on one advertiser, is what will you do if you are banned or the ad network goes belly up? Let’s say your site is exclusively Google adsense. Your making a lot of money and feeling real good. You are ready to retire from your old 9-5 and become a career blogger. And then it happens…. you get the e-mail saying you been banned from Google Adsense for “invalid clicks”. Google bans users for click fraud all the time, even if it isn’t you who did it. All Google has to do is suspect you are the one doing the click fraud(with no proof) and you are banned for life.

If you use multiple ad streams on your site, it will increase the chance that a visitor to your website will attracted to one of your ads. A visitor might not be interested in paying attention to a banner affiliate ad on your blog, but a Adsense ad blended in the content they are reading, might catch their eye and they click on it. When writing a review of a product put a affiliate link inside it. A user might click on your affiliate link, where otherwise they wouldn’t have clicked on any ads on your site. If you sell text link ads, you can sneak in a few more ads and make good money without cluttering your website. Sponsored posts is another great way to get even more money earned on a blog.

I consider these major categories for different types of advertising on a website. Preferably your website should contain at least 2 of the 3 categories of advertising for diversification purposes.

1) Direct advertising: This is where someone purchases a text link ad or banner ad or pays you to write a sponsored post on your blog about their product. These can be very profitable. Advertisers are hard to find that are willing to do this, unless you go through a advertiser pool rich network like Text Link Ads or a sponsored post network like

2)Pay per click: The most common Pay per click advertising used by publishers are Google adsense. Many use Google adsense as their only source of income because they don’t know how to monetize their site better. I highly recommend in addition to adsense you use another network called that shows pay per click ads ONLY after a visitor leaves your site via the back button after landing on your site from the search engine. This is a great way to boost your income from visitors who normally would just leave your site without clicking ads. Sign up to Exit Junction

3) Affiliate: Affiliate banners or text links that pay you per sale through that link. These may or may not be more profitable then PPC network, depending on the ad and your website. Some just put them as banner ads on their site, others write reviews and put the affiliate link inside the review. The trick is to find affiliate programs that you believe are good and will target specifically your web traffic.

How to set it up:

Every site is going to have a balance of what types of advertising work best for it. As an example for this site Dollars blog, I find that a variety of types of advertising all work well. I could put up affiliate ads, do sponsored posts through, sell text link ads through a text link ad broker like Text Link Ads, and then Adsense. If you don’t have a blog, you can make good money without the sponsored posts and with just Adsense, affiliate banners, and text link ad brokers.

About Web Based RSS Feed Readers

Web based RSS feed readers are a homepage where you can monitor multiple feeds you are subscribed to. Unlike most other software feed readers, you don’t have to pay a one time or monthly fee. You also don’t need to download any software. It is also treated as a online bookmarking for some, since you can access subscribed feeds from any computer just by logging into your account online.

There are web based RSS feed readers from Google and Yahoo and others. I noticed a lot of bloggers had the blogline bookmark button on their blogs, so I decided to check it out. It turns out Bloglines is a free web based RSS feed reader. Bloglines is also a feed search engine, that grabs feeds automatically from a variety of sources for it’s search engine. If you see something you like during their search engine, you can just subscribe to that feed. Publishers can “claim” their blog for the directory, so they have control over their feed, just like you can claim it in Technorati.

Linens is a great store for linens and now is the best time to buy from them because they are offering 40 percent off! They have everything you can imagine including Tablecloths, overlays, napkins, table runners, chair covers, sashes, table skirts and fitted tablecloths all in every size with up to 74 colors. You can trust this store as they have been around awhile and have good reviews online.

Bidvertiser Review

Bidvertiser is a PPC network that has been around for a few years. In my round of testing out many PPC networks for Dollars Blog, bidvertiser was my last of the “major” ones I have tried. I have actually been pleasantly surprised for a few reasons.

Three things I really like about bidvertiser compared to most other ad networks out there:

1) Many ad size and type choices. They even have those real small text ads, that I haven’t found on other networks, except for Adsense. This helps improve CTR rate because you can help it really blend into your content.

2) Convenience. You can get paid by paypal(only 10 dollar minimum) or check. You can start earning money immediately after registration. No social security or tax information has to be submitted before you are paid.

3) Control. Beyond the generic “network” ads, you can decline specific bidded ads from being displayed on your site, if you choose. Now in Google adsense you can ad sites to a competitive ad filter to “block them”, but they only allow you up to 200 in the list, and it can be a pain checking ads and blocking them. I think stopping them before they are displayed, is a easier more effective way to eliminate untargeted or offensive ads.

What makes bidvertiser unique from others, is that it’s not contextual, but allows bidding for a PPC ad on your site. When you first set it up your account, you get generic ads based on the category you picked to describe your website’s topic. Over time(at least in theory), advertisers will start bidding on your site and you should get more earnings per click.

One thing to keep in mind is that, getting 3rd party sites bidding on your site, may effect your click rate. You may wind up with higher bids, but they may not be too relevant. However, you get to decline these 3rd party bids too. The moral of the story is, only approve ads relevant to your site, regardless of the bid they offer. For example, don’t approve mesothelioma ads for your site, if it talks about pregnancy clothes, just because it has a $1.00 bid. No one going to your site on pregnancy clothes is going to click on a mesothelioma ad!

Don’t expect nice payout rates per click like you would get with Yahoo publisher network or Adsense. All these “2nd tier PPC advertisers” pay less per click anyways because of less competition. Bidvertiser also has a nice referral program. When you display bidvertiser ads, there is a automatic referral link on the borders of each banner ad. It could be a great way to earn secondary income through bidvertiser.

Visit Bidvertiser

You will need a vet to phone in to confirm your prescription after your order. They have great deals on medicine and even free shipping on all medicine. I encourage you to check out this store they are a reputable place and they have great prices and products.

Internet Too Saturated for New Bloggers?

One common thought that goes through new bloggers, is if they will be able to make it in such a competitive internet today. There are thousands of blogs getting created everyday. That just means every day it is getting harder to get established in the internet. And you have to work harder to get the same results.

The amount of people getting on the internet is still growing, but mainly in 3rd world countries. One positive I see is that more and more people are buying stuff from the internet in America, instead of in regular stores. What this means to me, is that it’s still not too late to start trying to make money as a blogger. It’s just getting progressively harder. I believe there will be a time in the near future it will be “too late” and you will wind up having to buy a established domain or something to get anywhere. The internet is not quite that saturated yet though, as I’ve gotten fairly new sites some decent rankings already.
