I just added a blog to my website. I was looking at a few books on blogs and see that they are promoted differently than websites. I got the idea for a blog from this site. With websites it helps to exchange links. So I guess a blog has something similar. So I would like to do that with my blog with people trying to make money with their own blog site who are on this forum. If it is similar to websites, then the people on this forum working together as a network can help each other to get more traffic to their site.
I have Google Adsense on my website. As far as success with it, my site is 1.5 years old and if you do a Google search for "losing weight," Google has millions of sites on this and my site comes up #2 or 2nd right now. It has been in the #1 spot a couple of times this month including last night. The blogs add a lot of original content to a site.
I chose not to use any software to build my blog. This means that people cannot leave a comment but I read how Steve got rid of his comments. I will be busy enough adding blogs without having to moniter comments. My site has a Google page rank of 2. I saw where Steve listed all these things to learn about to promote blogs. He said to search for them if you do not know what they are. I am unfamiliar with most. Instead of all that searching, is there a site out there where (like maybe one of you) has put info on what all of them all.
Also I cannot afford those books on blogs that I was looking at. Is there a webpage that has most of that information on it. Steve said that his blog does not get much traffic from search engines whereas mine gets a lot from the Google search engine. So that must be one difference between websites and blogs. So if you want to do the blog equivalent of exchanging links and your site is recognized by Google (meaning that you are not too new or have not done something to get them to ban you) then let me know. My email is email@example.com
I know a lot about promoting websites but practically nothing about promoting a blog. I like the title of Steve's blog. My site is more about health and mental well being than making money. Blog: Self Improvement for Smart People
