How Many Blog Types Can You Name

laptop How Many Blog Types Can You Name Blogs have taken over the internet. Fifteen years ago they did not exist, now most people have one. What is a blog? As you probably know, a blog is a site that works as a diary or scrapbook. People write what they are thinking about or are interested in.

However, what kind are there? What do writers use them for? And probably more interesting a question, why would you want your own blog? This article will look into a small sample of the kind of blogs out there. It will not be an exhaustive report; you would need a few books to do that theme justice. Box standard blogs. These are your typical, often boring, diaries, where someone starts to talk and talk about the latest problem they have, the last movie they went to see, how many boyfriends they have and other fascinating subjects.

Specialized Blogging. This refers to blogs on niche subjects like, bookbinding, a rock group, rock climbing or nail biting techniques, mice races, anything. You do not think there are websites on mice races? Check. This is probably the best part of blogs, they are about every subject under the sun, which means that if you are interested in something the chances are somebody is already blogging about it.

Hobbies blogs. These blogs are written for a niche audience that share some interest. The number of hobbies and interests that have their own blog is huge. You can find them on any subject you can think of. Can you imagine writing a website on the fascinating world of rat races? Well if you search for it on your favorite search engine you can read about it.

Affiliate Writing. This is not so much as a type of blog as a reason for blogging. They have evolved from egocentric diaries for the world to share to business some people do rather well from. How do people make money from their blog? In a variety of ways. The can get paid from ad word adverts from Google or some other advertising agency; sell advertising directly, although you generally have to be able to prove your traffic is pretty high to do that; or simply by selling or helping others to sell stuff. That might sound strange if you have never been involved with affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is simple really. You get paid to help others sell their product. A typical way to make money from affiliate marketing is by writing a post, or page, on a certain product. They generally include a link to the product they are talking about and if someone buys something after pressing on one of your links they get a percentage of what the person bought.

As you see there is no end to the type of blogs that exist or will exist. If you have a skill or an interest you would like to share with the world, blogs might be the way to go.

Affiliate Marketing: Why Do 90% Fail?

sadness Affiliate Marketing: Why Do 90% Fail? Why do 90% of webmasters trying Affiliate Marketing fail? The easy answer is that they are not good enough to win the race.

But the real thing is that there’s too much hype about Affiliate Marketing and it’s much more difficult to succeed than Internet Gurus will ever tell you.

First of all, you need technological expertise and know how on many fields, creativity, web design and maintenance, marketing, business. It’s not easy to be successful in all these fields alone.

Of course a team would be more successful but will the earnings be enough for an entire team? Maybe yes or maybe not, it all depends on many factors. But this probably could be the topic of an entire new post.

In a well done campaign, majority of the customers comes from word of mouth, after successful Pay per click advertising campaigns. Yes, Pay per click is successful, it’s the most successful way.

Advertising is the first step for a successful project. Advertising means slowly investing money, day by day, knowing that the first days you’ll not become rich but instead you’ll just build a structure on which your entire project will be based in the next months.

If you give up right now, after realizing that you’ll not become rich in few days, you will lose all the ideas and money invested in your Affiliate Marketing project.

So be patient and focus on correct and successful day by day Advertising, never giving up.

Now you have the first answer to the question of this post title.

90% fail because they give up too soon, they think to become rich in one day, they invested all their money in few days of important advertising but then stop when the money finishes, they don’t have the technological and marketing know how but first of all, they messed everything with their project, starting with a bad advertising.

A good advertising means: investing few money, but steadily, day by day and using a successful advertising method, which we think is Pay per click advertising.

We’ll talk more about Affiliate Marketing in the next posts.

Search Engine Optimization Secrets

seotips Search Engine Optimization Secrets Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the traffic to your website from search engines via natural search results.

Having a Website does not automatically guarantee having traffic, even if you register the site with appropriate search engines. You have to keywording to rank high in searches and find keyword combinations and variations.

How this can be done in a Weblog? First of all, avoid any “strange systems” to improve your ranking. As example, writing a post putting 20 times the same word so you can use it as keyword. It probably won’t be useful on the long run and will ruin your reputation as Blogger.

Focus on the posts titles, finding a good balance between a good title for your readers and a good title for the search engines. Check also the directory structures and permalinks. Must have the full title on them!

Add individual keywords and descriptions for each post. Means you don’t have to use the main page description and keywords for all the posts. Each post must have its own specific description.

The descriptions must be very clear and explanatory of the Blog article. Keywords must be words contained in the article but first write the article naturally and only then think about the keywords. Natural posts are loved by readers, believe me!

This will boost your reputation and word of mouth will do the rest.

The next important thing to do is focusing on the backlinks. They will really improve your ranking. Boosting link popularity is a great way to success! LinkWorth can really help you in this! So check it as soon as possible.

Of course word of mouth will bring more backlinks, means links to your Weblog from fans and other Bloggers who love your posts!

Last but not least, the issue about submitting to the directories. They are useful, as it’s useful using shopping directories for e-commerce sites. But if you build a good backlinks network, you just need a few of them.
