We read everyday articles such as search engine optimization, search engine results position ranking, PageRank increases, decreases, self-improvement, blogging techniques, widgets, XHTML, e-mail lists, Internet marketing, white papers, and more.
Are you sure the authors of these articles really do what they say? Are you sure these “correct, by the book” techniques really help? How can you be sure that any of these bloggers is not using any illegal techniques to promote, enhance, increase any of the aspects of their blogs?
If all bloggers would listen to these information and behave as they should, all blogs on the Internet would be equal in terms of ranking, traffic, subscriptions, and other. The only different thing would be the age of blogs.
I will continue stating that doing everything by the book will raise your blog beyond any other web site on the Internet. Sadly, we don’t have the physical time to do everything, like accessing Internet every day, documenting thoroughly for an article, writing the article, promoting the article using social media networking/marketing, sending shouts to Diggers, e-mailing people from your favourite e-mails list, commenting on how many blogs as possible (by comment I mean a short article with a helpful insight, not just a spammy line), writing useful stuff on forums, seeing what’s new on the Internet, visiting all your favourite blogs using Netvibes, cheching out the blog directories, such as BlogCatalog or MyBlogLog, and I’m already getting tired.
Most of us have jobs and families and friends. And we have to eat and sleep. Turn your blogging activity into a full-time and there you have it. There’s the time to do all that stuff. But the most complicated step to take is the one from a part-time blog to a full-time blog. You need to have resources (in real life) to get through the first months of blogging with none to little income), or work in parallel to raise the blog to a certain level of income.
But, let’s face it. One blog, one topic, one niche. How much money can you make? How much income can you get? You will have to open another blog. Or two of them. With different topics. And write on each blog every day.
