What Are Blogs And How To Make Money From

Them?

'Blogs' or 'Blogging' have existed for several years and there are stil many people who don't know what one is and how important it is to making you money.

A blog is a web log. It's used to add contents of a diary or news by the owner (blogger). For example, I may want to blog about the latest affiliate programs there are and ones that have good commissions as soon as I know about them. People can visit my website and see new contents on my website regularly.

A blog should contain information about a similar topic. For example, cars, computers, stamps etc... The good thing about blogs is that you can write whatever you want on it. Your visitors can even comment on what they think about a particular blog. With a blog you do not need to have any programming experience. You can update a blog easily by just typing what you want just like with a word processor. What an easy way to update a website.

So now we know what a blog is, what's so good about a blog? Why are so many talking about it?

Owners have found that updating fresh content to their websites has been made easier by using blogging software. Before blogs were popular, people had to create the content, get it transferred into HTML

by the programmer, and then uploaded to the website. All this hassle is gone with blogging.

Perhaps, the most important thing about having a blog is that the search engines love them. Yes, search engines love new content. It means a website is not static, therefore search engines wil visit that website often and get them indexed. If you have a blog, search engines wil have your website in their listings quickly.

Blogging should be done regularly by your business. The customers should have the feeling that your blog wil be updated regularly so that they wil feel the need to visit often. If your blog is stagnant, then people wil not go back. This is not how blogs are used.

What a lot of people don't know about blogging is that it can also help make you money. Yes - blogs can be profitable too.

One of the ways you can profit from blogs is to provide valuable content to them, and keep them regularly informed. Once you have created that relationship with them, you can place affiliate links within your blogs.

These have to be products or services that you recommend to your readers to use. Good commission comes with using this idea.

You can even ask your readers to donate money to maintain your blog.

Stress that your blog is a free service and you hope that they wil support you etc...

Once you have a lot of visitors to your blogging website, you can use Google's Adsense which shows Google's ads on your blogs. When your visitors click on those ads, you'l get a percentage of the payment for each click. With a lot of visitors, this wil add up to a nice check every month.

You can even have an advertising space at the top of your blog.

Advertise this space. You can charge people weekly to advertise what they want. You may even have more than one space for advertisements.

charge for these advertising spaces.

Blogging for Profit Begins Here

Many people dream of blogging for profit, and this goal is not far beyond the reach of someone with average intel igence, a wil ingness to work hard, and a basic grasp of blogging technology. However, very few people manage to reap the profits they want from their blog. Most people who attempt to make money with their blogs do not succeed for two reasons.

Often, bloggers have unrealistic expectations of how fast their readership wil grow and how much money they wil make, and when these expectations are not met the disappointment can crush the desire to continue blogging. The other trap that many bloggers fal into has to do with lack of planning. If you want to turn a profit as a blogger, the key to success is to make a realistic plan and stick with it.

To succeed at blogging for profit, the main thing that you wil need is a large readership. The higher your traffic, the more advertisers wil agree to pay you. However, cultivating the regular visitors that you wil need in order to make a profit isn't easy. As more and more blogs appear each day, having a great idea or a wonderful writing style is no longer enough to get attention.

You need to be able to market your blog effectively. Too many bloggers spend al of their time writing posts and almost no time marketing their project. To be certain, updating as often as you can is a great way to keep your blog high on blogrol s and high in blog search engines like technorati, and once your readers know that you update frequently they wil return to your site on a regular basis.

However, it does not matter how often you update if nobody is reading your page, so don't skimp on the time that you spend drawing visitors to your site.

To make your dreams of blogging for profit a reality, try decreasing your number of posts and using some of that time to draw new visitors by By George Langer. You Can Get More Making Money Online Advice At

setting up link exchanges with other bloggers, making contacts in the blog community, and fol owing other established modes of winning traffic. Of course, even if you are a marketing genius or have a real y great idea for a blog, success is not going to happen overnight.

Building the kind of readership that blogging for profit requires takes time, and in al likelihood it wil be at least several months before you are able to turn much of a profit. Try to stay committed to your blogging project during this initial rough period. To stay motivated, set goals for how often you wil update and how many readers you want to attract, and then reward yourself for sticking with your plan.

The Easy How-To Make Money Blogging Guide

There are two major types of business models that entrepreneurs use to make money blogging. The first and most common way to turn a blog into a profit making machine is to sel advertising to different companies and brands who want to reach that blog's readers.

The second kind of money making blog is one that helps a single brand improve its image by creating positive associations between the blog and the product in the mind of consumers. Both kinds of blogs can make a lot of money, especial y if the creator has a keen mind for marketing.

If you are blogging with the goal of sel ing advertising, there are two basic ways that you can go about recruiting sponsors who want to put ads on your site; you can let someone else do al of the legwork, or you can do the work yourself and keep al of the revenue. Within the first group, many people make money blogging by sel ing space through Google's AdSense program.

The advantages of this program are numerous, as it requires very little effort on the part of the blogger or webmaster to begin raking in profits.

However, most people discover that they make less money through this method than they had hoped that their blog would earn. Sel ing advertising directly to companies who want to put banner ads or sponsored links on your blog can take quite a bit of time, but it is often fairly lucrative.

If you have a lot of contacts in industries that are related to the topic of your blog, you may want to try to go this route. People who have a strong background in sales and are experienced at pitching proposals can make quite a bit of money by renting blog space to interested companies.

The most serious problem with this model is that you often have to build quite a sizable readership before you can attract advertisers, which can mean that you have to do several months of work before you start to make money blogging. As blogging becomes a more and more lucrative business, a lot of established companies are considering how they can get into the action.

One way that companies are capitalizing on the blog movement is by having blogs that provide a kind of friendly face for their corporation.

Often, a company wil employ an established blogger to create a weblog designed specifical y to appeal to that company's customers and to create positive associations with the brand in consumers' minds.

More than one writer who never even dreamed that he or she could make money blogging has been approached by a company and offered quite a pretty penny for this kind of gig.

If you run a smal company, you may find that the world of blogging for business owners is a world that you want to be a part of. Blogging is a great way to get the word out to consumers about your product or service, and it can even be useful for inspiring employee loyalty and helping you keep your workers at peak morale.

If you are looking for a way to take your business to the next level, consider what starting a blog might be able to do for you. Blogging for business owners has a lot in common with al other types of blogging, but it has its own unique pitfal s and strengths.

The key to having a successful blog as a business owner is keeping your goals clear and concrete at every step of your blogging adventure. It can be al to easy to get sidetracked, especial y if you are just learning about the exciting possibilities of blogging technology, but if you want your blog to succeed you need to stay focused.

Write up a plan for how often you wil update, how you wil promote your blog and retain readers, whether you wil feature photographs or video, and other aspects of your blog, and then stick to it with the same kind of determination that you used when you built your company.

The Importance Of Blog Design

Many people have started to create their personal blogs to express their thoughts and feelings. Internet companies have also started their blogs to inform consumers on the latest product news and reviews.

Because of this, blogs are also being used as internet marketing media.

Before, internet marketing is done by placing banners and links on popular websites, such as news and information sites. Links were also included on newsletters and marketing letters sent to the members of their mailing lists.

Many people spend time reading blogs. People read their friend's blogs, their favorite author's blogs, blogs on topics that they are interested in, and blogs on product reviews. With the increasing popularity of blogging, it is even feared that people rely on blogs to get the latest news.

While getting news reports from blogs isn't reliable, some people look for product reviews through blogs. In some cases, this is more dependable.

While it is true that some media persons are being paid to write good reviews about a certain product, blog writers write about their actual experiences on products and services from a company.

Since there are many people who read and start their own blogs, blogs are a good medium to market a product. With the increasing blog traffic means increase in product sales.

Blog traffic can be increased by joining affiliate programs and sites, which wil list your blog under a certain search category or name. You can also have your blog advertised in popular websites. This, however, wil cost some money and is not advisable if you have just started blogging.

A writer who has just launched his/her blog wil want as much traffic as possible to increase advertisements on the site. Also, some advertisers By George Langer. You Can Get More Making Money Online Advice At

pay every time their link is clicked or the page that has their link is viewed.

When you have increased traffic on your blog, you should try to keep you visitors coming back and recommending your blog to friends and col eagues.

This can be done by having informative or amusing content and good blog layout and design. You may develop your blog's content or you can also acquire the services of a web content writer to provide you with the blog articles.

The blog's layout and design also plays a big role. While most of the companies offering free blog hosting offer pre-selected templates, there are also some that al ows customization that if you utilize this feature correctly can increase your blog's traffic.

Here are a few tips to make your blog stand out from the mil ions of blogs out there that have standard designs.

* Customize the banner

The banner usual y has the most generic designs that are common to the blogs from a blogging company or service.

You can personalize this banner by having a graphic with the dimensions of the banner. You can also edit the graphic so that it wil also include the title of your blog.

In this case, you can create your own graphic or you can purchase professional looking graphics online for less than $10.

* Personalizing photos

Of course, most of the photos that you wil be posting wil be your own.

However, if you don't customize the photos before posting them, you may miss maximizing the enhancing benefits graphics can add to the page. Adding photo borders can help the photo stand out from the page.

border or you can also create your own border which can be associated with your blog's templates.

* Add a favicon

Don't you think sites with icons on the address bar before the website's URL are cool? Many people do. These favicons add a professional look to the URL. These easy to do using photo or graphic editing softwares.

* Check out blog templates, layouts, backgrounds, textures and skins from sites

There are sites that offer free blog templates, layouts, backgrounds, textures and skins. You can make use of these so your blog wil not look generic like most of the blogs hosted by the service provider.

* Include RSS feeds

This is a cool way to inform people with newsreaders about your blog headlines. Tutorials on RSS feeds are available on the internet.

* Audio makes your blog more personal

Not only does audio personalizes the blog; it can also keep your visitors coming back. You can try having streaming radio stations, mp3 file or playlists loading with your blog.

* Advertisements

If you have signed-up with Google Ad-Sense, which I am sure you would like to do, make sure that the ads are conveniently placed that these wil not hinder your readers' ease in accessing the information on your blog.

Try using these tips and you can definitely increase and retain traffic on your blog.

How Much Money Can I Earn With My Blog?

program. You probably think you can't make as much as you can from traditional advertising schemes.

Google, of course, keeps a great deal of secrecy regarding how much AdWords advertisers pay per each click directed to their site and the same applies for how much AdSense banner holders make from their websites and blogs

While there's nothing official, rumors circulate around the Internet concerning the amount of cash a blogger can earn by using AdSense.

And many people (il egal y) disclose how much they have been making with AdSense. There are stories of people raising over one thousand dol ars per month using AdSense, some as much as $1000 a day just through blogging.

There are also stories of people exceeding $100,000.00 per month but it's a bit hard to believe such stories. The truth to the matter is that if you have a smal blog and you just want it to support itself with a little extra income, and you don't wish to reach your pocket for its maintenance costs you can easily do this with AdSense.

AdSense is also very good for people who host a lot of pages or very large community blogs. Even if the said pages or blogs don't generate a lot of traffic individual y, every click counts and you can earn up with a lot of money by doing this. And that just goes to prove that sometimes quantity matters nearly as much as quality.

There's no tel ing how much money you're going to make by using Google's AdSense program on your blog but you can sort of tel for yourself, before actual y starting, by taking a few things into consideration.

First, is the amount of visits your blog may now get every day. While there's no way to estimate precisely on this, you can general y make a safe assumption that if you have a lot of clicks per day you'l be making good money.

Also, this depends on what exactly your blog is about. If your site is about anything popular (music, sex, whatever) you're bound to get a lot of banner clicks. These have a coefficient associated with them, cal ed By George Langer. You Can Get More Making Money Online Advice At

the CTR (click through ratio).

Basical y, what it translates to is that if a large proportion of your site's visitors click the ads you'l be making more money. And the best way to do this is to have some popular content in your site, ensuring the links direct users towards popular items as wel .

Then of course, there's the position and number of ads on your blog.

While you don't want to overdo it, having many ads wil undoubtedly generate more income for you as a webmaster. Do not however believe, that if you just add a lot of ads in an important portion of your site, visitors could always just skip them (and be assured that many do just that).

There's something between an art and a science to positioning your ads.

People general y look in certain places and never look in others, and knowing this a website author and/or webmaster can do a great deal of things to increase his earnings with AdSense.

Al in al , the amount of money you make with AdSense depends on many factors. But if you have a site with interesting contents and/or many pages, and if you see a constantly large amount of traffic every day, you can bet you'l be making a lot of money with AdSense.

Even if you aren't in the above categories, AdSense is stil worth using on your blog because there's very little hassle in setting it up, and many times it can help financial y support the site, whilst being a nice bonus to get through the mail at the end of the month.

Create Blogging Time

What's the perfect job? How about a job where you are your own boss, you set your own hours, work right from home, never have to deal with unreasonable deadlines and get to do something you love doing? Sound good? Wel that's the job description of a blogger. That, however, is the not the whole story! There are very, very few bloggers who have nothing else to do but work on their blog and even fewer who have a blog that provides a decent source of income so blogging is, for most, a second or even a third “job.”

There are two basic types of bloggers, the casual blogger and the serious blogger.

The casual blogger may have a basical y wel balanced life and a blog that is primarily a hobby. The casual blogger wil start writing a post, work at it for awhile and then stop to get some other things done until he or she feels like writing again. If a finished post doesn't get many comments, that's OK; the post expressed just what the casual blogger wanted to say and its out there if anyone is interested.

The serious blogger's situation is quite different from the casual blogger's. The serious blogger has a blog that he or she considers to be a job -- a job that may be competing with other important elements of life such as a primary job, a family, a social life and adequate rest. The serious blogger is committed (almost to the point of an obsession) to maintaining his or her blog and feels it is an essential element of daily life. The serious blogger feels dejected if any post sits on the blog for twenty-four hours or so without generating a comment or if the blog's

“hit counter” does not register a certain number of visitors every day.

That kind of commitment to blogging may take a big hunk of time out of the day and can easily create some serious conflicts between blogging and the rest of life -- to avoid this, the serious blogger needs to be organized and efficient.

Time management for the serious blogger! Anyone who feels that the day is too short needs to understand and implement the basic principle of time management: setting priorities. Some things are obviously more important than other things but some important things may be left undone unless you are control ing your schedule and not having random events control you. You need to set priorities and live by them.

Make a priority list! To begin setting priorities, make a list of everything you need to get done -- everything including things you've committed to doing, things you want to do, things you know you should do and things that you real y don't want to do but are on your mind. Be honest and put everything on the list -- take a couple hours or more to put it together if you need that much time, it wil be time wel spent because you are about to get organized.

Categorize! Now careful y consider each item on the list and put each By George Langer. You Can Get More Making Money Online Advice At

From http://www.millionstrategy.com

one into one of the fol owing five categories.

Must get it done today

Must get it done this week

Nice to do and might be beneficial

Nice to do but not real y necessary

Unnecessary

Now you have a decent priority list. Start every day with this list and every time you become aware of a new task add it in a proper place to the proper category. As the “must do” items are accomplished and moved off the list, some of the nice-to-do items may be moved up, but only if their priorities can honestly be changed.

Too many must-do things! If the list of items in the two “Must get it done

. . . ” categories is overwhelming, reconsider each item's importance and re-prioritize if you can, if not select the items that you real y don't have to do yourself, things like fix-it projects, business phone cal s, business letters, editing and proofreading jobs, etc. -- some of these things may be able to be done just as wel by someone else. Find a friend, family member, co-worker or a freelancer to do it for you.

Top Paying Keywords For Your Blog

In people's search for higher incomes from placement of Google AdSense ads on their blogs a lot of AdSense publishers are looking to find those keywords that real y bring the best income possible. The higher an advertiser pays for a keyword, the more the advertiser receives when they click on a link.

But how can you find such words for your blog? Wel , the answer to that question depends a little on who you are and what you're prepared to do to get those keywords. But the general good news is that you can indeed find such words if you need them.

Of course, if you can afford such a solution, one of the best ways of getting your hands on those words would be to pay for them. There are By George Langer. You Can Get More Making Money Online Advice At

specialized companies that do business by finding people good keywords, not only for the purpose of more AdSense revenue but for search engine optimization as wel .

Such a service can be found on "Top Paying Keywords" and this is a no-brainer to getting relevant content on your site and increasing your revenue by a whole bunch quickly.

Of course, if such a solution does not work for you, you can ultimately resort to a method of personal investigation. That means you try out keywords by yourself and see which ones work better or worse for yourself.

While you might also be doing this for the first method (paying someone else to get the keywords) it would probably be better then this because you'd at least be narrowing down search to certain items.

While you're trying this make sure to keep using AdSense's 'channels'

feature along the way as it can be a very good way of letting you know which sections of your site are generating income and which aren't.

Great tool that does al the hard work for you is Market samurai. It has amazing step-by-step video tutorials so you know exactly how to use it to make highest profits from your blog. You can get free trial here.

Also, a great aid may very wel be found in Google itself. Search Google for any keywords you may wish to include in your pages and look at the results. The results on the left wil probably be your competitors (and if they have Google AdSense ads on their page you can bet then are) while the links on the right display ads relevant to your search.

If your search doesn't yield any AdSense results then you might want to reconsider including those keywords in your site.

Make sure you don't use any dead words on your blog (words that don't get any links on AdSense other then public ads). That is probably the most important thing you should be doing when considering keywords to chase in your blooging for dol ars campaign.

Of course these are only a few methods of getting out of the dead zone By George Langer. You Can Get More Making Money Online Advice At

and starting to make serious money with AdSense. If you've seen a lot of people with "not so hot" websites generating a lot of AdSense revenue, using these tips can get you right behind them (or in front if you're real y smart) very fast. Although this is the case it is also very important to remember that having the highest paying words does not mean that you make the most money. You have to also consider how many times the advert is clicked on.

SEO For Your Blog

If you've been using Google's AdSense on your blog you obviously feel the need to somehow generate even more traffic to your blog website, which in turn would translate to more AdSense clicks and a higher income.

But who do you do this? Wel , the major way you'l get visitors to see your blog (other then using AdWords, which is encouraged as wel ) is to use some techniques to have search engines send more and more users towards your blog, by ranking high in search results for your topics of interest.

This is a technique, better known as search-engine optimization or simply SEO. So here are a bunch of tips that can come handy under every amateur or professional optimizer's belt.

The first thing you need to take care of is the actual source code and layout of your blog. This has to be kept as simple as possible. The problem comes when AdSense and the search engines themselves begin to have troubles in extracting the most relevant keywords on your site because of a too complex layout.

Secondly, try to have each one of your blog pages target only one specific topic. This way it is a lot easier for them to get indexed properly and for the AdSense ads to be consistent with the content of the blog itself.

Also, try not to include too many hyperlinks in your page as wel . This also means you should try not to use too many AdSense ads on your page either one or two boxes is al you need.

If there are certain keywords you wish to target, make sure the word you wish to target is present in the blog title, in the first paragraphs of your post as wel as in the name of the page. While you're at it you might want to ensure the word springs up in the page's last paragraphs.

And of course, it's very important for your content to have original and compel ing content. How do you do this? Wel the easiest way to do it is to find something you're real y passionate about. That way, providing you give it a lot of effort you're bound to have a great page quite fast.

If the content you use in your blog is in the public domain (which is highly discouraged) make sure that you at least give it an original title, and add an opening and a closing paragraph of your own.

This takes a little while, but if, after waiting, you stil can't find your page near the top, you should try rewriting your title and your first and last paragraphs. It doesn't take much, often just changing a few words wil give you the right results to stay ahead of teh competition.

And of, course there's the use of keyword tools that may aid you in finding some good keywords to include on your blog's theme that wil drive visitors to your blog more and more.

So those are about the basic techniques in search engine optimization.

You can find a lot of computer tools to aid you in doing this, and of course, Google is a great place to search for this.

In the end, you'l find that SEO is a complex topic, and entire books have been written on the topic as wel . Probably the best source I have ever seen on SEO and website traffic is George Brown's Traffic Ultimatum and if you are serious in making money online (which I guess you are), you should definitely consider this investment which wil return many times.

Myths About Blogging

clarifications:

Anyone can start a blog!

Not just anyone! There are some requirements, some more obvious than others. Obviously, you need a computer that you know how to use, an Internet connection and some experience using the Internet. You also need a host for your blog; there are blog hosts that are free and some that cost a smal amount per month. One last requirement is not just an ability to communicate your thoughts but also a wil ingness to do so.

Anyone can set up a blog!

Some blogs are much easier to set up and use than others, this depends on your blog host (e.g., blogger, iblogs, typepad, tblog, etc.). Some blog hosts take you through a couple simple set-up steps and you're off writing your first post but there are others that get far more technical than the average user may be ready for.

Blogging doesn’t take up that much time!

That depends! Some posts, when you have a clear idea of what you want to say, may take just a few minutes while you may struggle for days (literal y) with others that involve complex issues or thoughts. In general, blogging is a daily activity for the serious blogger (some bloggers write up to ten posts a day) and a once-a-week activity for the casual blogger.

Blogs are in competition with the main-stream media!

This is true in a few cases (not as many cases as bloggers would have you think). Just recently, there have been some very popular and influential social and political y-oriented blogs that have caused main-stream media outlets to back-track and change their coverage of important events.

Bloggers just criticize and have no new information to add!

This may be true in some cases but blogging today is much more than the personal activity it used to be. Corporations, media outlets, public personalities, politicians and experts in almost every field have now joined the ranks of blog producers. Considering al this expertise, one would have to say that bloggers have a lot of new information to add to any debate.

You can't believe anything you read in a blog!

That's a bit of an overstatement. You'l run across bad information and even intentional untruths in blogs but, for the most part, bloggers who state facts are stating what they honestly believe to be fact. It is always up to the readers to verify that any information they receive is accurate information.

The blogosphere is a meritocracy!

Does the cream rise to the top? Of course it does but outside of the world of the dairy, a lot depends on how you define cream. If you consider the those bloggers who have the highest readership to be the

“best“ than yes, the blogosphere is a meritocracy with readership being the 'payoff' for being the best.

The best, however, is not always the most popular. You wil , while surfing, run across some extremely intel igent, extremely poignant and extremely erudite bloggers who have a very smal readerships, as evidenced by very few, if any, comments to their posts. That can be explained by those blogger's lack of wil ingness to 'play the game' that must be played to attract a large readership, e.g., aggressively promoting their blogs, spending many times more hours reading and commenting on other's blogs than they spend writing for their own, listing their blog on every available directory, etc..

Every one of us has a different definition of success, to some, a large readership is adequate success, to some using their blog as a money-making device and actual y making some money is the ultimate success while to others, like those with an intentional y low profile, feel that simply creating posts that are perfect expressions of what they want to say is reward enough.

Build Up Your Blogs and Watch Your Adsense

Cash Grow

The best thing about blogging is that there are no rules. You can write about anything you want. A self-publisher’s dream!

There are some things you can do though to maximize your Google Adsense profits. Narrow your subject. Don’t just write about shopping.

Write about shopping for antique dresser drawer pul s. Write every day.

Have a blog at more than one site. If you develop a readership, you’re more likely to increase your profits.

Write about something you know or want to know or at the very least care about. If you try to write a great blog based on a “hot keyword” yet it’s something you could care less about, you’l likely not stay with it long.

Experiment and see what works for you. You can write based on your own opinion or something factual. You can review a product or service or a movie. Read other people’s blogs and notice how many reads they’re getting. Above al , have fun. After al , it’s free and if you’re persistent you’l see your Google Adsense dol ars adding up.

Use Pictures For Best Effect With Your Blogs

So you have become a blogger. You have joined the legions of those keeping web logs and journals online. How do you make it fresh, though? How do you stand out and show the world that your blog is worth a read? Wel there are a number of things you can do from optimizing your content to making sure you are consistent in your updates. However, consider the idea of adding pictures to your blog. A great deal of blog success can be had by making pictures a big part of what you are doing on your journal.

For the most part, blogs are often used to sel something. It can be a product or it can simply be your own ideas and readership. Either way, you want your blog to be read. So everything you do with your blog wil likely be done as part of making it interesting to your designated audience, right? Keep that in mind as you put everything together.

Most any good blog is going to have a theme. Before you begin your blog you need to figure out what your theme is. Is it your life? Is it your philosophies? No matter what, there is no better way to make a point about your theme than with photos or pictures. Most any blog site has the tools for uploading pictures, so make sure you are using them.

Potential readers wil be able to see just what you are al about as soon as they see your blog page without having to read a lot to see whether or not they want to continue reading your page. When you have an instant impact with pictures it wil be much easier for you to end up with a successful blog.

For many people, the blog is a tool they use to market a product and drive up sales or services they offer that go hand in hand with their blog.

With good pictures and photos you can keep your products in front of your readers at al times. You can put images of the products along the side of your page or you can place them strategical y through the blog site. In addition, you can then advertise without bombing your readers with your propaganda in the text. Nobody wants to read a bunch of ads, but if you post pictures, you can advertise without advertising al over your actual blog content. Either way, the photos and images wil be added way of making your blog a success for you.

Another reason that pictures can be a big key to blog success is simply a matter of aesthetics. Images wil make your blog look nicer and if it looks nicer it wil then attract more readers. It al makes sense. I mean, would you want to publish a book with a boring blank cover? Of course you wouldn’t. The same goes for your blog. In essence, a wel kept blog is like your online book and with good images you are making for a nice cover. They may say not to judge a book by its cover, but many do anyway so you might as wel have a nice looking one just to be safe.

The truth is that whether you are talking about blogs, magazines, or television, we live in a society that is very visual. So when it comes to a good blog, readers expect to see pictures and images that wil titil ate them and keep them engaged in the information. So, the key is to keep your images fresh and consistent so that they help accentuate your points and support your themes and ideas. You can get your pictures and images from your own library of images and pictures you have taken on vacations, around your home, or even just in your town. You can also download free images that are available online, link to other blogs or even use other images if you are wil ing to pay the royalties. No matter what, though, the key to blogging success is very closely tied to the images and visual quality of your blog. Newspapers and magazines would not sel as wel if they lacked images, and your blog wil operate just the same way.

Choosing The Right Blogging Tools

There are many free blogging tools on the market, but loading up your blog with al of the free accessories that you can find isn't necessarily a good idea.

While it may be tempting to add a visitor counter, a flashy background, an exciting new font, and a cluster of quirky animated gifs to your blog, this kind of plan can easily backfire. The key to getting the most from free blog tools is being selective.

It is a great idea to learn about al of the kinds of free blogging tools that are available so that you can make an informed decision about what to add to your blog, but try to remember that just because you can have something doesn't mean that you need it. Practice restraint and only choose the options that you think wil real y be useful.

And last but not least... Consider some premade paid tools like Traffic

Blog Empire or Blogging To The Bank that can literal y skyrocket your blogging profits.
