Earn Money with Your Own Blog
There are many ways to make money online. In this post I am going to teach you how to earn with a blog. Blogging can be fun and is a good way to make a little extra money. If done right, it could make you a lot of money.
What you need to get started….
- You are going to need a webpage
- Something you are passionate about
- A place to host your webpage
- The knowledge it take to build a webpage
It really isn’t as bad as you may think it is. In fact, it’s really quite easy. I can show you how to build a webpage in 30 seconds and get started in no time at all. But we will talk about that later on.
First you need a domain. A domain is just what they call a webpage. You can purchase this in several places. Just make sure your buying from a reputable company. I personally buy from Google Domains or Wealthy Affiliate. Domains usually run between $13 an $30. It depends on what comes after the (.). The ones that end in .com are generally the least expensive and you can also buy several endings or them all.
The Next Step
Now that you know how and where to get a domain we need to figure out what to call it. Picking a name is important. You want to pick a name that is relevant to your niche or idea. Your best bet is to do a keyword search on your niche idea to see what people are looking for. Then make it into the name of your site.
Building Your Site
Now that you know where to get a site and how to pick out a name there is only a few things left. Decide where you want to host your page and getting started. Hosting is a good question and is where things aren’t so straight forward. You can go with several options. Hosting on Google is one option. They have free hosting but you do not learn anything about how to build a site. They do not offer any lessons but you can pay someone else to build it. There are several to choose from. If your are going to pay for it you should at least know how to do it.
Keywords and Tools
If you are interested in getting traffic to your site the use of keywords are essential. Keywords are the words used when people do searches. You can see how these are important to get people to your site. Using keywords to develop content is an important part of monetizing your page.
You are going want to use words that have a high search rank but a low competition. That will make it easier to gain rank and to the top of the search page. Your goal is to be the first in peoples search at the top of the page.Wealthy Affiliate has great training on keywords. They teach everything you need to know and how to best utilize them.
There are many keyword tools out there but the one I use is Jaaxy. Go ahead and try it out it is free to join. You will get 30 free keyword searches to try it out. Inside of Jaaxy you can build and save lists for different pages. The ONLY way you are going to be successful is through the use of keywords.

How to Make Money
The entire point of this is how to earn an income. You can do this in several ways also. One way is to affiliate market, that is sell other peoples stuff.
