The Online Money Making Secret You Shouldn't Know - Part 2

Sunday, August 12
So, continuing from yesterday (if you haven't read Part 1 you can find it here) I mentioned that having a site devoted to a keyword phrase that has extremely high monthly search volume can be a great way to start your online marketing strategy. If you can grab only a slight percentage of that volume you can see some quick income - maybe not the millions you read about all the time, but, at least a great beginning.

Make Money Online SecretsWhere should you start? The first thing you should look at are the top 500 search terms on the internet. You can usually find these on various sites devoted to keyword research - in fact, Google, AOL and Yahoo typically show the search volumes by month. If you haven't done this before be ready for a boat-load of entertainment keywords - most of the top 500 are going to be actors/actresses, bands, shows, songs, etc. Be ready - it becomes somewhat humorous to see what people search for out in cyberspace.

Here are some sites you can start with:

1. The Lycos 50 - a great place to start that has lists going back at least 5 years.

2. Hot Searches on AOL - gives top terms by category

3. Google Trends - is a list of the top 100 by date - this would be a great way to search trending hot topics over time.

4. Yahoo Buzz - in addition to lists has some very interesting articles on popular topics.

Next, if you really want to discover the deeper monthly search volumes for your list you can get a free trial account at Keyword Discovery. They have the monthly stats you need to see just how big your search phrase really is. Of course you can always use the standard Yahoo Keyword Selector Tool which also shows monthly volumes. This site is down quite often so you may have to try it a few times before seeing a page or results.

Once you've found the very popular keyword phrase you want to promote then you should create a Blogger blog with that phrase being the key term in the posts. Place your Adsense ads strategically in the top and top left panels of the blog for maximum exposure. Remember, the Adsense TOS states only a max of three ad placements per page.

What should you post? There's plenty of free content out there to find - free articles, videos, blog links, even news articles (be aware you may not duplicate a news article in your blog - you must fully rewrite the content in your own words.) Be sure to keep the content flowing - don't be afraid to list you own opinions, top ten lists, interesting facts, etc.

Finally, do everything in your power to promote the page daily - that means having a link backs to your site through:

1. Blog search engines / Directories
2. Forums devoted to your topic - have your link in the post signature
3. Articles - if you can think of an article, write it and post it to as many free article directories as possible
4. Press releases - think of a spin on your blog and announce it - see my post The Power of Press Releases5. Link exchanges
6. Blogroll exchanges

If you don't know how to create backlinks using these methods then I strongly suggest that you buy both Holly Mann's Honest Riches and Ewen Chia's Newbie Cash Machine. Those two guides have all the steps and techniques you need to do - which is a bargain at $37 and $27 respectively. That's only $64 total with practically all the knowledge you need to become successful online marketers.

Plus, don't forget to be productive every day - ten minutes a day will do the trick. Read my post on being productive.

Good luck! I hope this helps you make money online. Check out Part 3 of this article here!
