Make money online is a dream for many people out there but not much people can do this successfully, many people start a site or blog blindly without planning for the future, they just follow the trend and write whatever topic that most of the people like, it doesn’t work.

In order to drive more organic traffic to your blog, you need to plan first before starting your site or blog, you need to know how to build a profitable niche blog. You need to do keyword research on various keywords, there is actually many keyword tools out there that help you do the works, one of the popular keyword tool would be Google Adwords Keyword Tool.

Then you need to decide which keyword would be the most profitable by determining which keyword has the least amount of competitors, so that you can outrank them easily and get into Top 10 in search engine result.

Choosing a good niche topic to base your website around is one of the most important aspects of driving organic traffic off of your articles. This will give you a foundation to build from and you can target one general audience with a pack of keywords that they are most likely to be searching for.

If you write a specific topic in a blog, when a new visitor approaches to your blog and find that your blog has a lot of  relevant articles, most probably they will come back to read other articles again. This way, even though you are targeting one specific subject, you will be sure to interest a wide variety of people in that one niche. They may also find other pages that interest them, which will keep them returning to your site to learn new information about the niche subject. I’ve created few niche blogs and all the blogs work quite well in term of the traffic and earning.

If there is a couple of keywords in the result, then you have to pick the keyword that you feel would be easiest to start with and can be producing unique content non-stop. Once you’ve built the blog for few days and the blog starts to generate some revenue, then you can start to pick another keyword which is your 2nd choice and do the same steps as the first blog.

So you just need to repeat the same procedures over and over again, as long as you choose the right keyword, I believe that you can make a passive income every month just from your online business.

I think Keyword research is one of the most important things you need to learn if you want to make money online , the most important thing being learning to take action. Combining SpyFu with Google adwords tool can get you more great results because SpyFu gives you and idea of the prizes of the clicks as well.

What you mean is Niche Marketing right? Using your blog as a medium for your online business like niche marketing, would really make you money on the internet.

Don’t just create a mere blog that in the long run you have nothing in return from your efforts since you want to earn money online.

But new blogger nowadays, are quick on launching their blogs but afterward, they end up nothing to post.

I would say that through niche marketing and research to fill the information to the niche market could help you earn more money on auto pilot –

Instead of creating only one blog, why not try to cover some targeted keywords and make a research to fill the needs of information you want to share? And do it all over again in other targeted topics.

What I found out these days that there are still many bloggers who still can’t find good profitable keywords using Google keyword tool.

I would like to invite you to visit this video link how to find and choose profitable keywords using Google keyword tool –

Most of the beginner bloggers start a blog blindly without doing any keyword research, end up they will just quit because not getting any earning from the blog.

I’ve mentioned in the post that once you created a blog and the blog starts generating some earning, then you can create another blog and do the same step as the first blog. I believe that 1 blog will not make you rich, so we need to keep producing more niche blogs to increase your earning.

I’ve visited your blog and watched the video, quite interesting. Targeting longtail keyword before targeting the main keyword does really help in getting more organic traffic, at the end of the day you’ll be able to rank well for the main keyword as well. Thanks for sharing the video link. 🙂

Also, thanks for your comment here, I enjoy discussing more about this with you. 🙂

Yea, choosing the right niche before starting out is very important and keyword research is the most critical part if you tend to make money online. If you do something wrong in the beginning, and you’ll waste your time and effort because you’ll not be getting anything else in the end.

Nice to meet you Sampaguita! 🙂

If you want to make money by blogging, it is much better if you have a niche blog because you would be recognized by people as an expert on that niche and if you are recognized as an expert, they would be visiting your site and that will help you to be an authority in Google eyes

Lee Ka Hoong September 29, 2009 at 5:40 pm

You’re right and I strongly agree with you! Besides of having a niche blog, you need to be really expert in your niche, and the most important part is that you need to really communicate and build relationship with the crowd, building a community is very important, it judges the success or failure in your online business in the future.

Biodun October 8, 2009 at 10:20 am

Yeah Lee building strong relationship within your community is a key to make it online. A professional blog can do wonders for building trust!

There’s always money to be made with niche blogs. But you need to have the right niche thats got a high search count + low competitors. If you can do your research properly you will find a profitable niche and start making money out of it.

Although there are loads of other ways to make money online, this is also a very good and profitable way to earn some cash.

Nice Post.
