Make Money Online Blogging for Free

This article is guested post by Trent Brownrigg.


There are several ways to make money online for free but one of the easiest ways is through a simple blogging process using blogger.com and other free blogging platforms. You can set up as many blogs as you want on these free blogging services without ever having to pay anything for your blog.

Here’s a simple blogging plan that you can do for free, or very cheap, to make money online:

The first thing you need to do in order for this to work is find a niche comprised of people willing to spend money and not just full of free information seekers. A few of examples of these niches are weight loss, fitness, making money, expensive hobbies, and gadgets. People in these niches are typically willing to spend money so you have a better chance at converting your traffic into income. Don’t target the main keywords in these niches because they will be way too competitive. Instead, you need to find smaller niches within the main niche.

After you have found a good niche to target you will set up a free blog on the topic that you chose. Then, write 10 blog posts on different keywords within the niche. You can also use PLR articles if you don’t want to write that much. It will cost you some money but still a cheap alternative. Just make sure you rewrite them a little so they aren’t exactly the same as everyone else who also bought them.

After the first 10 original posts that you have written yourself or got from PLR and rewrote, you can take articles from a directory like ezinearticles.com and post them on the blog so you can spend your time marketing the site to build traffic to it. Article directories have plenty of articles that you can use in almost any niche; you just need to be sure to keep the author’s resource box intact with a live link to their site.








You can also add a little blurb to the beginning and end of each article so they aren’t completely duplicate content for the search engines. A paragraph or two saying whether or not you agree with the article, bring up something else that they left out, or just state that you think it’s a useful article.

The next thing you need to do is apply for a Google Adsense account and put the ads on the blog after you are approved. You will earn a certain amount of money every time someone clicks on the Adsense ads on your blog. It can range from a few cents up to several dollars per click depending on the niche and how well your site is optimized. Google will send you a check each month or deposit the money directly into your bank account. Just be sure to read the Adsense terms of use, program policies, and rules and strictly abide by them or they will cancel your account. Definitely make sure that you never click on the ads on your own sites because you will quickly lose your account by doing that.

Traffic and links take some time to build up but they are not difficult to do. You can get links and traffic by commenting on dofollow blogs, submitting articles to article directories, doing link exchanges, submitting your blog to link directories, social bookmarking, guest blogging, buying links, and several other ways. What you are mostly looking for is keyword anchored links from relevant sites to increase your search engine rankings but any link is better than nothing.

After you have built somewhere around 100 different backlinks to your blog then create another blog and do it all over again. Your new blog can be in a related niche or something completely different. Do this over and over again with as many blogs as you can. The money you make will be minimal at first but your efforts will eventually start to gain momentum and you will start seeing more and more money coming in.

Make sure you don’t forget to go back and build more links to your older blogs every once in a while to keep increasing the traffic to them. After you build a new blog just go back to some of the others that you have already done and get a few more links for them. This will help increase your search engine rankings and bring more visitors to your blogs so you continue to make money online free with very little effort.

When you start getting a large number of blogs built it will be difficult to work on them all, so put them in some sort of rotation to make sure you get to each of them equally. As you get more experience you will start to figure out which niches require more work to gain and keep rankings, and which ones you can spend much less time on. Then you can adjust the time you work on them as needed.

That’s all there is to it. Follow this simple niche blogging plan and you can make money online for free. This is one of the best ways to build an online home business if you take the time to do it right. Of course, you will need to learn how to find profitable niches, set up blogs, build backlinks, and do a few other things but all of that can be learned for free by simply searching on Google and asking questions on forums.

Now get to it!
