Make The Url The Same As Your Blog Title

  Something that will help Google and others find your blog and others remember it. I would try and make the Blog Title the same as the URL. So in other words like I made my blog title Monetize A Blog and the URL is . Sometimes it can be a little tricky, because the url may already be taken. The best advise I can give is to think up different names that will suite your blog and keep trying. Now if you change the URL after you had it for awhile it may negatively affect your google comments.
 I myself have changed my blog titles and urls, but I did not have many if any comments. So I have not seen any problems. If you did not do this and your sight is getting a steady traffic flow then I would not mess with it. I am trying this with my blogs as an experiment to see what happens. Honestly I have not seen a big difference in traffic by itself. When I make a tweet on twitter to send out a post to boost traffic I did notice that I did have better results.
 I guess I…

A Bit Of Advise When Working On Your Blog

I just started working on a new blog and only had two posts written and published when disaster struck. You see I was writing a third post and decided to publish what I had because I was in a hurry. I figured I would come back later and add to it when all of the sudden it disappeared. I started checking things and found that it had been locked by blogger. They apparently thought I was spamming when in actuality I was not spamming anyone. Just doing the norm by writing about telephoto camera lenses. 
 Well I immediately did the appeal and will have to see if they unlock it for me, so I can go further with this blog. I plan to look into the various types of camera lenses and do some typical affiliate marketing with the various camera lenses. I am working on doing some reviewing on the lenses and helpful information in any way possible. But like I said you never know when Murphy's Law will happen.
 So make sure you have plenty of good content and don't try to go too fast. Take your…

Christmas Is Coming And So Are The Shoppers

Now is the time to start planning your posts to drive traffic to your blog and hopefully gets people to buy some Christmas Gifts. Yes when I think about my post ideas I do think about the seasons and the holidays. So whatever your niche is maybe you might think about adjusting it for the season. In other words change your ads to reflect the upcoming holiday such as Christmas. Make sure to use your keywords to reflect the season as well. You know if people are searching those seasonal words are going to be used. So why not give yourself a better chance. Also the more people at your blog the more people may see your links to your other blogs. This way you may be helping someone in a way that they did not expect.

I Am Not Getting Any Traffic To My Blog

This is one of the most frustrating things a person will face when running a blog. Yes how do I get that darn traffic to my website. Well yes you definitely need to have good content and be honest about what you blog about. You know that old saying "Honesty Is The Best Policy", well it is true. If you start lying about things people will eventually see right through you. Then you will lose traffic as the bad word spreads about your blog. This can happen in any business, in fact a person where I work said that it was their job to lie to the customer. I say if you have to lie to someone to sell something then there is something wrong with your business. Yes it does show by the lack of work coming in. They can blame everything they can think of, but the truth hurts.
 Okay so back to the subject at hand on getting traffic to your website. One of the keys is writing some good blog post titles. This can be a tricky task at times. I have sat there and struggled on what to make th…

Need To Make A Blog Post Title

If you are like everyone there are times when your not sure what to choose for your blog post title. Well I was in that predicament today and so I did a little searching on the internet. What I found were some websites for creating blog post titles with a blog post title generator. What I did was use Google Adwords to think of a keyword that generated a lot of hits and one that had low competition. Next I plugged it into the blog post title generator and it was giving me various ideas.
 I had quite a few different ideas or examples. What I did next was think about how I could change what I saw to fit my niche. The next step was to start writing the post. After I had the post written I looked for pictures and videos I could use from the creatives commons. Just make sure that you give the attributions if they are present. Never use anything that is not in the public domain in creative commons or you could be in a problem with copyright infringement and you don't want that.
 Just r…


Do Not Over Monetize your Blog. If you add too many ads of different types you may drive people away. Remember your blog should be a way of communicating to your readers. They came there because they saw the post title on Google or Yahoo or some web browser. That caught their eye and sounded interesting to them. Maybe they were trying to figure out something like repairing something and now the first thing they see is a bunch of ads. Now they suspect that you are just trying to sell something to get their money.
 As for myself when I go to a blog say for example for something associated with Ham Radio I do not want to be hit with tons of ads. So how many ads are too many ? Well maybe put a adsense ad or two spread out on the website. You could also put a Amazon Ad within the post and maybe a few links as well. Sometimes I like to blend an Amazon link and an Ebay Link spread out in the post. I have tried putting an Amazon Store below the posts on some of my websites, but that does no…

What Do You Think?

I think that the way to make money by blogging is not to worry about the money aspect at the start. I think your main goal should be first to enjoy yourself and second to help other people in any way you can. It can be by giving help with computers or building something or even by a few kind words. So many of us want to become extremely successful we forget what the real goal should be. Think about the people who are reading your blog. Are you doing this to help or just to put money in your pocket. Way Too Many Times Greed takes over and we forget what we should be doing. If after awhile your blog does become successful thank your readers because without them you would not be here. I am by no means successful but I am trying to help and I would like to say...

Use Facebook To Advertise Your Blog

Another way of getting that needed traffic to your blog is by using Facebook. Now you can just write a post mentioning your blog and input the blog address. What you can also do with facebook is start your own facebook page with your blog. I have done this with a few of my blogs and then I invited a number of my friends. The thing is to have your blog name something that will easily come up when someone is searching on facebook. For example I have my blog called The Ham Shack Shop on a Facebook Page. It seems to come up due to ham shack being a fairly common name in ham radio. Here are a few videos below on how to start your own facebook page as well as how to drive traffic with facebook groups.

10 Most Popular Niche Ideas

I think all of us who are out here blogging ask the question what are the most popular niches that will bring in the traffic to my blog. As I have said in other posts that you should not give up. It takes time to build up that audience of loyal readers. Not every post you write is going to be that traffic bringer. Believe me I have posts on my various blogs that do not get much traffic. One thing I do is I look at my posts and if I see one that is not doing well I change the post title.
 So what are the most popular niche ideas out there today. Here is a list of 10 popular ideas below.

Traffic Equals Money

Ask yourself does traffic to your blog always mean you will make money. My answer to that is not necessarily. You have to do a few things to make money with your blog. Yes getting the traffic to your blog is very important, but keeping the visitor interested may just be more important. No I would say it is more important. You need to put yourself in the place of the person visiting your blog. Are you going to be interested enough to come back for more ? Will you want to keep reading or will you just get bored and click somewhere else. I know as for myself I have gone to many websites and blogs looking for something and got bored and left.

There are plenty of other excellent books and here is a link you can click on MAKE MONEY BLOGGING

 Of course not every book is going to be the golden answer to you making money with your blog. As I have said before it takes time and good content. Look around the internet at different blogs to get an idea of what people write and how they set up a blog. Comment on some of those blogs if you see something that interests you. Maybe they have written something and you find that you have it in common with them. Share your ideas and what you think about. Like I said making money is not the most important part of your blog. Helping others in some way should be the main goal of your blog. That help may be in the form of giving advise, providing information or maybe even teaching someone about something or how to do it.

How To Win The Lottery

Okay so winning the lottery has nothing to do with making a successful blog and making money or does it. Well in away it does have a similarity. That similar item is planning a good website blog. You need to look at the various templates and try and pick one that feels right for your niche. You also should look at the types of fonts, because will look better for whatever your blog theme is. The other item that can be somewhat important is the choosing of colors for the various parts of your blog. In other words choosing appropriate colors for the links, post titles, gadgets, text and backgrounds. You see it all needs to flow together. Remember to try and choose proper keywords and keyword phrases that will flow in your blog posts. You have to imagine that you are the reader and what will keep you interested enough to keep reading and want to come back for more. Also if you are adding affiliate links and picture links make sure they are associated with what your blog and post are abo…

#1 Way To Be A Successful Blogger

So how do you become a successful blogger ?

                                       DON'T GIVE UP !!!

  Always remember it's not going to be easy. Things get slow, that's just the nature of the game. If you have to get up and walk away and do something else for awhile. You probably will see something and it will trigger an idea. Who knows that may be the idea that tips the table and everything will move in a positive path.
  I have many times when things become slow. It's happening right now where I work at my usual job. I work on computers all day and yes it has slowed down to a crawl. It's normal and it will pick back up. That's why you spread yourself out with different blog ideas. One blog may become slow and another may pick up. Set your blog ideas or niches to work in tune with the seasons. In other words gear your blog toward summer, fall or winter.
Thank You for stopping by and as the old saying goes.

Make Money On Youtube

Here is an idea to make money with your blog. Create a youtube video about your blog or maybe how to make a blog on the internet. Then during the youtube video point people to your blog by putting up the blog name and address. Just make sure your youtube video has some good content. If you don't the viewers may just say this is stupid or a scam and then leave. Always be honest about everything, because there are way too many scam artists out there trying to get your money and waste your time.

Try Writing Some Short Posts

When you write some of your posts try to keep them short. Maybe write one paragraph or two. That way your reader won't get bored if you try to write too much. Keep your subject right on the money. Make sure to use key words and key phrases. Maybe in your post choose a photograph that represents your subject matter. Also try to find a video through creative commons that follows your subject matter as well. You need to remember you are not writing a book and you want to keep your readers coming back for more. Always keep your readers in mind, because without your readers you have no traffic and without traffic you won't make any money. Of course don't make the money your main reason for your blog.

Amazon Or Ebay....Ebay Or Amazon

Sometimes we get into a dilemma whether to use Amazon or Ebay in our blog. We tend to wonder would it be better to just use links to Ebay webpages or to use just links to Amazon. Well I think you can actually use both Amazon and Ebay within your blog post. What I like to do is figure out what products or ideas I am talking about in my blog post. I then place a few links to Amazon and Ebay throughout the blog post. Most of the time I may have three or four paragraphs in a blog post. I usually place two links per paragraph. Now I don't follow this rule every time.
  I follow a few different paths when I work on my blogs. You see I have multiple blogs with different subjects. There are times when I use text links in the post for just Amazon. I also do the same thing and just use text links for Ebay. Then there are other times when I just use a widget for an Amazon product along with a text link to Amazon or Ebay. I do all these different methods to find out how things work. You se…

Start A Webstore Blog Site Online

Yes there is nothing like e-commerce on the internet. In other words start a blog with a e-commerce webstore. That is what I am experimenting with these days. I have amazon stores on some of my blogs. I wanted to see how well people liked it or if they did not like it. I did not want to make the important part of the blog selling items. I really wanted to just make the various ads an added attraction. In other words if someone decided to search or look at some ham radios they did not have to go very far.

Monetize Your Blog Ideas

What are some of the key ways to get that traffic to your blog. Well I would make sure to have a good post title for your post. Make sure your post represents or is part of the entire blog idea. Also make sure your post title leads the reader into your post itself. It has to be relevant to what you are writing about. What I do is get an idea for my post and then I go over in my head what I want to write about. What I like to do is look for keywords with Google ad words that have a high number and a low competition number. This way it is shown that more people are searching for your post title idea a month. You then have a much better chance of getting traffic to your website blog. 
  Not only use the keywords in your post title, but use keywords through out your post. I would not

You Should Use Google AdWords In Your Blog Post

  One thing I have found very helpful is using Google Ad Words in my blog posts. See I am doing it right now.You need to learn to pick your keywords or keyword phrases wisely. What I do is think of what my post is going to be about. Next I open up the blog I am going to work on. Then I open another window in the web browser and go to Google Adwords. I think of various keywords or keyword phrases for the post title. I then type in the keyword or phrase and check for at least 5000 clicks per month. Then I look at the competition number. You generally have three choices. Check out the excellent books at Amazon at this link  Google Adwords .

Books To Help With Your Blog

What are the best advertisements to place on your blog. After doing some research I mostly read that the advertisements should be made according to what your blog is about. So that is the rule that I generally follow on my blogs. But rules were made to be broken or so they say. I have a few blogs that cover a wide variety of items. With that said I tend to try and gear the ads to the current post. In other words if my post is about Ham Radio I place Ads and links in the post for Amazon and Ebay according to what the post is about. I may also change the Amazon Ads and Ebay Ads off the side of the posts to represent what the current post is about. I do have a Amazon Store below the post that pretty much covers the Blog idea and that way items are usually geared so the customer could search for whatever they choose.

How To Start A Blog


  The first question I had when I read about blogging I decided I wanted to start blogging. The question we all have is how to start a blog. After searching on the internet I found websites about using Google Blogger. After going to their main page I wasn't sure exactly what to do. What I did was to go to youtube and look up Google Blogger and found various youtube videos on how to get started with Google blogger. To my surprise it was actually very easy. The hardest part was trying to decide on what to blog about. I did look into wordpress, but decided not to use it due to not being able to monetize it with Amazon Associates, Ebay Network or anything else. There was only a one type of monetizing on the free wordpress called wordads, so I decided not to go with it. Maybe at a later time if I could afford a paid wordpress account I may change. For now Google Blogger is working just fine.

How To Get Traffic To Your Blog Videos


  I am always looking around the internet for videos on how to get traffic to your blog. I have found quite a variety of different videos on how to get the traffic to your blog. The only problem I have found is that some of these videos may just be spamming videos. In other words someone is putting out a video just to sell their product. They always seem to be very legit at first and then they reel in the fish once it's on the hook. In other words they suddenly are offering something usually as a book to purchase. This is the oldest trick in the book and it is used by places of business everywhere. It is called bait and switch and it is an illegal tactic.

What Is A Blog


   I was looking back at my posts and I realized that I never talked about what is a blog. I was talking to my kids and they asked what is a blog. Well my easiest explanation is that a blog can be anything you like and want to write about.
It can be your favorite hobby or about current events in the world we live in. It can be personal or it can be funny, because we all know we all love to laugh. There are blogs that are meant to help people with many things. It can be about repairing laptops, desktop computers, printers, ham radios or anything electronic. You could write a blog about animals or maybe your favorite animal. There are blogs where someone is writing about a job they do such as being a wedding photographer or just a hobby photographer where you take pictures just because you enjoy it. So basically just think of something that interests you and start writing about it. Don't try and write a huge number of posts right away. Just write maybe once a week or …

Using Clickbank On My Blogs

Clickbank Review | How to Make Money with Clickbank
   I came across Clickbank while on the internet. I did some looking around the internet to see what reviews were like. You do have to be very careful these days due to the many scams that are out there. I did find that according to the many reviews that clickbank is not a scam by any means. In fact there were many reviews and videos that gave it a pretty good rating. Here is a pretty good link to information about clickbank . Here is another website with some interesting information .Of course you will find the many other reviews that indicate not good things to say about clickbank. It seems to me that you do have to watch what you promote, because you never know if they are a scam of some sort. So use you best judgement when deciding on what to promote. If you …
