How Do I Run A Profitable Internet Marketing Blog?

Feb 23, 2008
Chris Stigson speaking. I'm an internet marketing blogger who spends a lot of time testing new stuff in the bloggin era. I've kind of cracked the code for running a profitable blog and want to do a test as well as share some knowledge with this article. Benefit by reading more.

It's a common thing to hear about success stories on profitable blogs these days.. Some generate amounts of up to $100,000/month and beyond. Profitable they are. You as a blog owner probably need to do a few things differently in order to get the most out of your internet marketing techniques and take a few steps to increase search engine rankings, make more money and have it run on autopilot.

Having a well defined anchor text using a keyword is a smart way to increase search engine rankings. But search engine rankings isn't the only way to get free traffic. See, there is a lot of traffic to be gained from RSS submit, which is an RSS syndication software. You can also get a lot of traffic from socialbookmarking sites and more.

If you are in the middle of starting an internet marketin related blog which sole purpose is to write about internet marketing you probably want to "sub-niche it". This means you choose a specific topic within "internet marketing". This can be affiliate marketing, article marketing, eBay marketing, Traffic generation and more.

It's important to "niche within the internet marketing niche" if you want to dominate search engines. It's that simple to generate income, once it's set up. Don't make the mistake of targeting "make money", "make easy money" or "make money online" first time around or you'll be quite disappointed =). Instead use keyword research tools and gain massive leverage over your competition who is guessing what we search for.

Simple example could be "traffic generation". That's our "IM sub-niche". Great. Let's go do some keyword research before we get carried away. Let's say we type in "traffic" and it spits out "increase search engine traffic" as a viable keyword. Then head over to Google and type it in. Now head over to Yahoo and use "link:http://www.yourcompetition.com" to see the backlink count for your competition. If it's below 1,000, go for it! There's our sub-niche-long-tail-keyword. Yippie, let's get going!

The next step would be to create a domain which would be similar to the keyword. Either short or long, depending on your preference. So, "traffic" should be in the domain and something like "www.increase-search-engine-traffic.com" would be a perfect domain for the keyword "increase search engine traffic".

It's time to pump out massive amounts of content about your keyword. In this case we used "increase search engine traffic", so let's write about it in your blog! Sounds smart and simple? Well, it is... It's also smart to collect another 10-20 or even 50 NEW keywords and create articles about these as well. Start posting them to various article directories like ezinearticles or goarticles for maximum exposure.
