The Blogging Cash Machine - Make Mounds of Money Blogging Part-Time
There is a new ebook on the market about making money using free blogs online and is fast climbing up the popularity ranks.
The tagline for this ebook is "Make Mounds of Money Blogging Part-Time", and the author apparently makes $9000 a month for one affiliate product. So the question is whether or not "The Blogging Cash Machine", by Danny Warner, actually makes good on its promises. As a guy who has made a full-time income from exclusively free methods, I decided to investigate.
Section 1 -- Keyword Research and Selecting your Niche Market
A very thorough introduction to the bread-and-butter of founding a successful weblog , accessible enough for even the greenest of newbies to understand. Warner even explains what a keyword actually is, before telling you exactly how to find good keywords and providing a formula on how to assess whether or not they will be profitable. An excellent start and very reassuring to those who consider themselves technologically-challenged.
Section 2 -- Setting up your Blog
Once again, Warner doesn't spare the detail. He tells you exactly what blogs are, compares the different weblog platforms (such as Blogger and Wordpress), and then goes into rich detail about how to effectively set them up. This is as step-by-step as it gets, but without compromising on the little tips and tricks that you can make on your weblog 's settings to boost your profit margin.
Section 3 -- Monetising your Blog
This section is one of the highlights of the ebook. As we have now come to expect, Warner starts off by simply explaining what methods are available to make money from your weblog , ensuring no reader is left behind. Then he walks you step-by-step on how to add affiliate links and Google Adsense. Now this is really standout, because Warner uses colourful diagrams to show us exactly where the Adsense should be placed and, thankfully, tells us exactly where to cut and paste our code in order to achieve maximum profitability. This gives you incredible versatility, and it is utterly paint-by-numbers; read the instructions and apply as directed.
Section 4 -- Generating Content for your Blog
This section covers the information to put in your weblog . Warner provides some neat templates, so you should never be short of ideas on how to structure your content. It is also explained how to use PLR articles, outsourcing articles, using forums and many other methods. On top of all of that, there is a guide on how to optimize your content to provide good rankings for your posts.
Section 5 -- Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for your Blog
Now we get to the juicy bit. "The Blogging Cash Machine" makes it incredibly simple to quickly set up a weblog , add content and monetise it. But that won't be worth squat if you can't drive traffic to your site. This is where SEO comes in, and Warner doesn't even spare the kitchen sink. You'll learn about - and how to - add back links, anchor text, weblog submission, directory listing, articles, press releases and forums. And as though it isn't enough to give complete step-by-step guides to all of these methods, you also get relative lists of resources so you know exactly where to do your submitting and general SEO.
Section 6 -- Advanced SEO Strategies that will take you to the Top of the Search Engines
The final chapter deals with very dynamic techniques to boost your weblog from mediocrity to dominating the search engines. I can't give away too much about what Warner writes here for obvious reasons, but they are certainly very viable methods he has written about.
Danny Warner drives $9000 or more in affiliate sales each month, primarily from blogs. It is accepted that people can make a full-time living online, even from free methods. The question here then, is whether or not "The Blogging Cash Machine" will help you do that.
As an internet marketer who has read more than his fair share of eBooks, this is one of the finest I have ever come across - and I don't hand out favours for free. "The Blogging Cash Machine" is remarkable because of its utter accessibility and sheer depth. Although it is a reasonably streamlined ebook that won't take you more than an hour to finish, it is packed with juicy strategies from start to finish. And it is written in an entirely newbie-friendly way that doesn't isolate more experienced marketers.
If you cannot make back the money you spend on this ebook by a score of tenfold, then you may as well forget about using the internet as a means of making a living from home!

Oldest Blogging Site Offers Safer Alternative to MySpace
Back in the early days of the Internet, before anyone had even heard the word “blog”, a web site was started for writers in the brand-new world of online journaling. That was in 1998, and only a few hundred people were keeping diaries or journals online. However, the founders of OpenDiary.com knew that if they were going to bring these people together in a community, they would need to have some simple rules.
Then, as today, there was a great deal of concern about people contacting each other through the Internet for unfriendly purposes. These problems have only become worse in recent months, with the growth of social networking sites such as MySpace and Xanga. Every week, it seems like there is a new story in the press about an unsuspecting teenager who was lured into a bad situation by somebody assuming a false identity. The fact is, the truly bad situations – the ones in which a child is hurt, or worse – would never occur without there being physical contact between the people involved.
Realizing this, the people who started OpenDiary.com wanted to make sure that the visitors on their site would not be able to contact each other in the real world. They established a simple rule – all users of their site would remain anonymous, and would never be allowed to post personal information such as full name, phone number, or address in their online diaries. Other rules were added, to ensure that people would not be allowed to post racist, sexist, or other derogatory writing, and to keep pornography out of the site.
“Most of the social networking sites today have realized that they need rules like this,” said Bruce Ableson, founder of Open Diary. “The problem is that they didn’t have them in place from the beginning – and once you have thousands or millions of people used to living on your site with no rules, it becomes like the Wild West. Riding into town and trying to force rules on people who are already living there can be extremely difficult.”
With these rules in place since its beginning, Open Diary has had a very low incidence of real-life problems between its users. After eight years online, the site has hosted over four million diary writers from countries around the world. The fact that all of them must remain anonymous has created some funny situations, Ableson said. “We have had times when a brother and sister or two coworkers have found out that they know each other in real life, after being friends on the site for years.”
Increase Your Website Traffic With Blogging
Blogs Gone Wild!
I was thinking about just placing this under the Building traffic page, but I figured that blogging has become so huge that it deserved a separate page altogether. Probably the best way to gain traffic and exposure, blogging has fully emerged. For those of you not too clear on what a weblog (also called weblog) is, it is basically a personal journal on the web—well, actually that was the idea in mind when it first started; people simply wanted a community in cyberspace.
So why are blogs so popular nowadays? I can think of a few reasons off the top of my head: For starters, it gives us a community in which we can easily communicate with people we know or never met about topics we share in common. With blogs, we can show our unique personalities through our writing. Blogging just gives the world yet another way to communicate on a grand scale. There is virtually no limit to what you can post. Don’t be left out.
And to think, there was a time we needed to send messages in a bottle.
Advantages of blogging
Blogging has truly arrived as one of the most popular ways to gain popularity on the Internet. Blogs can be responded to and updated at anytime so long as there is a computer around. A weblog is not some upper echelon magazine run by miserable editors; you don’t need to be grammatically perfect all the time; you don’t need an editor unnecessarily sifting through your words for mistakes; and you don’t need a publisher to release your work. Nobody can tell you what to write or tell you what he or she wants you to say. If you have an interesting topic to talk about, let yourself be heard—in your own words--using a weblog .
You can write about anything from sports to supermodels… and everything in between. If you like to debate then what are you waiting for? Blogging is great for starting arguments and getting other peoples views on certain topics.
You can literally reach thousands of people using blogs. You could even post from mobile phones… lunch breaks will never be the same.
All in all, the advantages of blogs are very clear and I think everyone should at least give it a shot.
How can this benefit my Web site?
Blogging is the latest, and best, way to promote your web site. People are starting to realize that blogs have a domino/viral effect in that it prompts many responses and can facilitate web sites by providing high amounts of traffic and high search engine placement.
You can point links anywhere you want within your blogs to anywhere on the net—including other blogs or to your own Web site. When you look at it that way, it’s no wonder it’s easy for you to gain exposure.
As big as blogging is now, I expect it to get even bigger. If you have a thought and can add an interesting spin on it, you should simply create a weblog ... who knows, you might create a great community.
At the moment I’m using blogs here and there just to increase this very web site’s popularity. But since I like blogging so much, I am going to keep doing it for the fun of it.
Give it a try today.
The 3 Biggest Problems Affecting Blogging Today
Everyone and his dog has a weblog these days.
According to Technorati, the largest of the weblog search engines, they currently track 33.3 million blogs.
Just why are there so many blogs?
Firstly, there are the real genuine folks - the bone fide bloggers who love to share their thoughts and ideas on a regular basis with a wide range of interested readers. And good luck to them.
But there are also a number of problems with blogs leading to a massive glut of spam blogs - or "splogs" for short.
(1) Regular Updates
By definition a weblog is updated regularly. A weblog that is never updated defeats the object. However this can put pressure on the blogger to add useful, interesting, applicable posts frequently. Perhaps they don't have the time. Perhaps they don't have the inspiration. Perhaps they simply don't have enough to say.
Whatever the reason, the "regular updates" conundrum can lead to poorer quality posts over time, or less frequent posting, or the use of content from other authors.
(2) Search Engines Love Blogs
It has been suggested that weblog stands for Better Listings On Google because typically blogs will rank well in the search engines, and are indexed both quickly and regularly.
This makes blogs a dream tool for marketers of all descriptions and leads to numerous blogs being created with the primary intention of being keyword-filled search engine food whose sole aim is to draw traffic that can then be turned into dollars.
Now even many of the largest bloggers will accept advertising to help pay for their hobby but when a weblog is put up *just* to draw visitors, rather than to be interesting, again the quality and frequency of posts can drop rapidly.
(3) Advertising Billboards
These two factors mean than many blogs soon become simply places for bloggers to paste dozens of adverts for products they can earn a commission from.
They provide little if any content, not even product reviews, just page after page of keyword-stuffed adverts.
Which defeats the object of a weblog , and is also unlikely to keep visitors coming back for the latest updates.
So why are these problems? Well they reduce the overall quality of blogs on the Internet which isn't good for people like you and me looking for high quality information.
I can honestly say that 95%+ of the blogs I visit fall foul of at least one of these three problems, if not all of them and those that I would revisit I could count on the fingers of one hand.
It's also not good for the search engines whose business model depends on serving up accurate, useful information to us.
So they're fighting back.
Google is deleting huge numbers of splogs hosted on their Blogger service and many other blogs are vanishing from the listings.
If you try to weblog without posting regular, useful, original content it's only a matter of time before you get caught.
So best to remedy your crimes *before* all your effort goes up in smoke at the next search engine update.
Now go make those changes ;-)
