Make Money Online Blogging for Beginners



Bloggers Big News in Business Week

Business Week have written a very interesting article about bloggers and their big bucks -

It's a pity they failed to mention my very own humble list showing the connection between your Alexa ranking and how much you can expect to earn - Alexa Ranking and Blogger Revenue - but the article is very good nevertheless, it also contains a link to a short list of bloggers and how they make their money. (Paula Mooney's list is much more comprehensive).

One thing that stands out, however, which Paula Mooney also mentions is that niche blogging is the best way to go. The guy shown in the article with his funny cat blog "I Can Has Cheezburger?" stumbled upon it by accident but it struck a chord, most of us like pictures of cute cats doing silly things, and it just took off because people kept coming back to see more funny cats!

So find a niche, with mass appeal, if that isn't a contradiction in terms. I'm experimenting with several niches at the moment, none of them as funny as cats unfortunately, one on the stockmarket - Shares City

  1. Hi Old Vic -

    Does everyone tell you that you look like a young Paul McCartney?

    Let's hope bigger publications pick up on our earnings' reports...

    And your personal blog about your battle with life is now on my Technorati favorites.

    Now I can see what you've battled.

    Take care,
    Paula

  2. Hi Paula,

    Lol no, no-one has ever said that about me, so a 'world first' there ! And thanks for including the word 'young' :-) Have you ever done any TV advertising 'cause there's a TV advert with a woman who looks just like you, can't remember what it was about but I'll let you know if I see it again. Thanks for looking at my 'battle' blog and favoriting it. I usually don't talk much about personal stuff, but I thought I'd take a leap of faith and see what happened. Congratulations on the exponential improvement in your stats too!
