Full-time job or just as a hobby?
In both cases you can earn money, but as you can guess. If you have just a few hours for blogging per week, you can assume, that it may take several months to make a substantial profit from it. But on the other hand, if you invest all the time you have and you will exactly know what to do. After a month or two, you can see interesting results.

What is a niche and how to choose it?
Niche is a certain part of a market. Such as fitness, golf, toys, investments and others.
It is quite important to choose niche well because during a time you should become an authority within it. So if a visitor comes to your blog, he must believe, that he gets valuable information. It can be done by creating a valuable content. And this is the reason, why you should choose a niche, which you are in love with, passionate about or it is your hobby. Also remember that more post you make, more traffic you are going to get and you will be a bigger authority. So choose the topic as you would make content every day.
Make up at least 30 topics
When your niche is chosen you can start writing. First of all, you should be able to make up at least 30 topics, to write about. To inspire yourself you can use Google whisperer as is shown in the picture. Just write some base word and you will see the rest. Also, you can use an alphabetical technique – write a base word, space and letter A, then B, C…So you can see the words connected with your niche, which can give you an unlimited amount of topics to write about.
Original and relevant content
When you have the topic, to write about, you must write an original, valuable and relevant content. It is essential for you to succeed.
First, you give to your visitor value, show him that you appreciate his time, you are writing mainly because of him.
Second, you write original and relevant content to your topic (keyword). It affects ranking in google search results. Google search engines don’t like duplicity or irrelevancy.
Frequency of posting
The best blogs on the Internet are posting every hour to maintain their first position in search results! So it logically means, more often you post, better. But don’t be scared of them. These blogs are mainly targeting too general keywords because they have the biggest amount of searches.
Speaking of keywords
As you can imagine, the more general keyword you choose, the more competition you have. So naturally you have less chance to get ranked in search results at the top. The solution is simple. Just choose a more specific composition of keywords. Target specific products. For example instead of “make money online” you can target “how to sell books on amazon”.

Traffic from social networks
SEO is an important part of your incoming targeted traffic, but not the only one. Next step, after you have your website filled with blog posts, is to lead traffic there from social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google plus, Tumblr, Instagram, Vimeo….and others. Naturally, you need to create them and fill with valuable content (Read about automatization like schedule from one place HERE).
When you are making some post, remember that you are actually communicating with your audience. You can ask them questions, say something funny or quote. Try to make up something catch-eye. Every social network has buttons for sharing, liking or retweeting, so your post can become viral. And if your viral post contains also link to your blog post, it can lead to an interesting cash reward.
Just be careful to don’t over use links. Good is to redirect your followers once or twice per week. Also is recommended to post links, which do not lead to your blog, but somewhere else, like youtube video, interesting article you have read and similar.
On the internet exist much more ways to get visitors. From paid advertisements in search engines or social networks, cross banner advertisements to exchange your RSS feeds. You can register your website to catalogues, write short articles to websites designed for it, join some discussions on your topic and others…But I can’t write just about traffic because I would create a book instead of blog post. Actually, I with colleagues have created a trilogy Traffic now for your website by PC Employer. If you want to know more details you can read it.
Monetizing your blog
One of the most effective way of monetizing your blog. Almost every successful store is offering affiliate partnership. It means when you register as an affiliate you can get some commissions from every sale you make through your affiliate link. For example, Amazon gives you 4% to 8%. If you are writing a blog about golf, you can write an article about golf clubs. Then you can describe every type of club and what is it good for and you can add an image of the club and write “The best club ever you can buy with 33% discount HERE.”. Then put there your affiliate link and you can start earning.
When your blog has some traffic, you can use an empty space of your blog to provide a place for some banner. Many companies are paying to Google for their banner to get to the eyes of people. So if you register to Adsense and you provide a space for a banner on your blog, you can get paid. Google will do the rest. Your only duty is, to have the best quality content to your niche with the use of proper keywords. Most specific and targeted your blog is, more reward you can get for click or per view.
Or you can go to your PayPal account and there si a button for donation. You can place it into your article and if a reader likes it, maybe he will send you a little gift. So if you like my article you can donate me clink on the image.
Have you ever heard, that money lies in the list? It is absolutely true. So don’t forget to take emails from your readers. They will give it to you if you give them a reason. For example some bonus video, ebook or just regular news from your niche. You can use your email for promotion and earn another money.
Now you should have some picture of how it works. If I should give you some advice, I would say just create really valuable content and the money will follow. Thank you for reading, don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have a question. As one clever man said „The only stupid question is the one that is not asked“.
