In this article we will examine the three basic questions in regards to making money online. What are the start up costs, how much time it will take to get income going and how much knowledge (will I need; should I have) to start with? Specifically related to making money online, these are the questions I hear most often when I get feedback from list members.
Now you have your blog set up its time to start posting. I would advise you to post at lease once or twice a week to start off with. Nothing wordpress blogs too large. Between 300-1000 words will do. Write about anything that your visitors will gain value from. So if you have a blog on green tea, you could do a post entitled ’25 reasons to drink green tea’. And educate them on the benefits of drinking it. Make sure you ping your blog every time you add new content at one of the many pinging sites (this let’s the Internet know you have just added content to your blog).
The other problem is that a good proportion of the people who make money blogging do it by selling crappy advice to the other 999,999 failures. I am not going to do that. I am not selling a damn thing, although if you take my advice and sign up for the tools I use, I will make a couple of dollars in commissions. All I need is 999,999 people to take my advice and I will be set for life, in which case – anyone want to buy a few wordpress blog design?
When signing up for hosting, don’t sign up with a company that you have heard little about. They may be small-time service providers who are offering unprofessional services. You want to go with a Company that has been in this business for years. The reputation would have been spread around forums and blogs. Only sign up if you keep coming across great reviews. The overall rating should be above 90% (the remaining 10% are those that won’t be happy no matter what the Company does).
You need to upload the wordpress installer on your Hostgator account. If you want your domain name to point directly to your WordPress blog, upload till bloggen on your public folder. If you want a specific page of your URL to point to your WordPress blog, upload WordPress on that page’s folder. You can upload WordPress using an FTP client (I suggest Filezilla as it is very easy to use) or via your Hostgator account’s cPanel.
Five: Because it is free to use is one of the main reasons why wordpress is the best blogging platform. All you have to do is to download it and then upload it to your webhosting. What could be simpler than that?
Don’t let information overload set you back any longer. Either way your going to have to make a decision on what blogging software you want to use. I guarantee you that WordPress is the best blogging software, but if you choose to research blogging software further you’ll find what I said here to be true.
