Make Money from Home through Blogging – Jargons and Terms Used in Google Adsense

If you are home based and have a blog, you can monetize it by adding some advertisements. Most blogs will have advertisement in it, unless if it is a business blog. Business blog normally don’t have Adsense or other advertisement because if one does that that they are actually advertising the competitors’ products. As you know, Adsense will display the advertisement based on the theme of your blog.
Some people blog for fun, so you will not see ads in these types of blog either.
To make money you will need reader. How are you going to drive readers to your site?

These are the common Jargons and terms used in monetizing your blog

Clickthrough : The number of people clicking your ads over a specified period. Google adsense pays you whenever someone clicks on the Google Ads and read it.

Impressions: An ad that is appears on your blog when a reader is reading your page. These are commonly known in Adsense as Image Ads. So make sure you choose at least (max 3) Text and Image and add them to your site.

Page Views: Page viewed in your blog by your readers.

Clickthrough rate: Clickthrough total divide by total impressions.

Conversion Rate: Total number of people buying the advertised product after clicking your ads

CPM (Cost per thousand impressions): The amount you earn or what the advertiser pays you for every ads seen by a thousand people.

You can see all these terms in your Google Adsense report. Hope these jargons explanations help you in understanding your Adsense report so that you can analyze your site advertisement results to fine tune your site/blog. Start making money online from home. Happy blogging!

Promoting Your Blog at Social Site or Increase Your Keywords Count? Which is Better?

There are many social sites like Facebook, Tagged, Mybloglog ......the list goes on and one. Promoting your blog at these sites will get you some visitors but do you think most of them will be your long term blog readers? The time you need to spend at social site is very long. Sometimes you get carried away by all the networking facilities at these sites, making friends but not driving visitor to your own site.
Forget the backlinks or trying to link to a Google high ranking websites. Yes, higher site ranking will give your pages better hit rates, I don’t dispute that! If you increase your keywords count you will have more index in Google pointing to your site. One question, more links from Google is better or more links from other websites are better? Definitely more from Google is better! They are the most successful search engine around. It pays to make your site Google friendly.
So, it is more important to concentrate on you blog posting than to spend too much time at social sites. Concentrate on building your keywords according to your blog theme. Make sure all your posting are well focus on your blog theme. It takes time to build these, so be patient. The more keywords you have in Google index, more search will end up at your site and the likeliness of your post ending up first on the result page increases! More serious users who are searching for something will end up at your site. This will also increase your Adsense click rate, if you are blogging for the money . Anyway, forget about the money first, put some passion into your work, and money will start rolling your ways soon.
Therefore, forget about your ranking and social sites, concentrate on your keywords.
Happy Blogging!

How to Make Money from Blogging

“Blogging can make money?” my friend asked me. Somehow, this is the reaction I get from many people whenever, I tell them that it is possible to make money from blogging. However, this may sound easy. Many bloggers failed to make even one cent. It is actually not as easy as it seems to make money online from blogging.
To monetize your blog, you will need to put in some hard work and most importantly, patience is a virtue. Setting up a blog takes time, so does waiting for search engine to index ones’ blog.
Google Adsense is the most common way to monetize your blog. You can incorporate Google Search, Link ads and CPM (cost per thousand impression) in to your blog and make money from your visitors.
Next one on the list is signing up with affiliates. You will be paid whenever a visitor to your site clicks on the affiliate button and buy something from there. These are the common big brands that have affiliate program. Companies like Amazon and Linkshare manage some of these big companies affiliate programs and you can sign up with them to choose the category that suits your site theme.
Some people will build blogs and take ownership of the site (means use buying a domain name .com, instead of using free blogging sites), then advertise their blog for sale in websites like http://www.sitepoint.com/.
There is money to be made from Pay Per Post. As the name goes, you get paid to write review on the product chosen by Pay Per Post. Sound simple?
If you can write and know how to set up a blog, you can actually sell your services. There are many companies that are willing to pay someone to set up a blog about their company product or services.
Wish you happy blogging! Cheers!

Keywords Trickery- Stay away from this trap

I am sure you have seen many ads offering to increase visitors to your site. These are normally advertised as a get rich quick scheme. For me it is more of a get booted out of search engine index quick. One of the tricks is to repeat the keywords many times in the Meta tags. Some search engines are still using meta tag for indexing but many are now using the actual content of the web page. Some of the trick of these schemes is they will use a program that change the IP address and log in to your site repeatedly. Your site hits will increase but not from human visitor and it serve no purpose in the long run, or worse if a search engine found out about this, your site will be blacklisted. Therefore stay away from this keyword trickery trap!

Keywords and Web Page Contents

Many search engines are now using Robots or Spiders to gather web pages content information. There are some search sites that are still using human effort to are still been indexed manually. But I think their days are numbered.

The actual content of your site is very important in search engine indexing and also to your visitor. Therefore it is wise to use as many terms as possible that describe your post of topic. There more keywords you have the more effective it is for the search engine to match it with a search.

Your website content must also be interesting enough to keep your visitors from coming back to your page. Some website bore their visitors to death; they will never come back to your site again.

Put yourself in your visitor shoe. What do you think they are interested to find out about your site?

Creating Website Basics

In order to create a website, you will have to work with HTML language. What is HTML? Well, it is a tag-based language that is used to represent information that the computer or web browser can understand. Unless you are geek, you will be able to fully write and understand html language. However, there are many soft wares available that can help you to convert simple English into html code. The most common one is the Adobe Dreamweaver. Some online services such as Blogger and Myspace allow you to work with html using their editor to design your webpage.
Html allows you to work with graphics without storing the media content in the html itself unlike for example Microsoft word documents. Html links to external media files such as Flash media or image files. Common types of files are files with extension .css, .jpg, .gif, .png and .js
When you have your site created, you will need to publish it. You can either publish it to a webserver or in your own computer.

Search Engine Optimization, Increasing Website Traffic

Search engine optimization or in short form SEO is a technique to increase the volume and traffic to a website using keywords. The earlier a site is displayed in the Search Engine Results Pages, the higher it rank, which means more users that do the search, will visit that site.
One of the basic techniques to select suitable keywords for your site is to imagine what users might type in when they are searching for things that are relevant to your site. Your best key index is the title. There are many vendors selling products that are said to be able to increase traffic to your site. Don’t fall for this scam. Many of them are using unscrupulous method and major search engine are able to find out that your website are using. When they do, your website will be blacklisted and no longer be in the search engine index.
Pay attention to the content in your website. Work the hard way by posting suitable articles at your site or join relevant forum/groups, use newsletters to drive people to your site and advertise in pay per click ads.
Search Engines use crawlers to search websites for their algorithmic search result pages.
There are SEO tools that are tools that are created by webmasters to optimize a website with search engines. Backlink checker and pagerank checker are some of the tools available.

Another low cost business to maintain as you does not have to print physical books. You get paid when a customer wants to download your books.
3) Setting up a website on particular topics and earn from advertisers.
If you are good at writing, you can set an up a website that attracts visitors and you can charge advertisers to advertise at your site. The easiest way is to sign up with an affiliate program or Google adsense, which pays you per click or when someone buys something through your referral.
4) Stock, option and futures trading through online brokers.
This is more of investment than doing business. But for me, I think that this can be categorized as home based business. Investing require some skills and knowledge so be prepared to keep on learning and be on top of market news and world events.
5) Selling of domain names
You can purchase domain names that you think is popular and sell it to the highest bidder that wanted it for his website name.
6) Web Page Design
If you are technically savvy, you can offer web page design to companies that want to have their own sites. Many companies have not set up their own site, so it is a big potential business.
7) Online multi level marketing
The income potential is great if you are successful in this one.

Working from home requires great discipline and not many are successful in doing so and they normally give up after a few months. Internet takes away the world boundaries and you can reach almost everyone in the world as long as he or she is connected to the web.
