About ten or fifteen years ago (at the time of me writing this post) the idea of “blogging” was trending and becoming more and more popular.
A few lucky people and some stay-at-home moms were starting to gain some success and Internet fame from simply writing about the feelings or about topics and interests that they were passionate about.
But does that still work or do you recommend that for the average Joe who is looking to make money online?
So, here’s my opinion on blogging…
Writing content worth reading and waiting for the search engines to index it and rank it takes time.
When most people start their journey of making money on the Internet they’re usually desperate…and broke…and want or need to make a lot of money fast.
Building a blog or authority website takes work.
And a lot of time.
But, the good news is, that once you have it built up, and it’s getting a decent number of visitors each month, it can provide a pretty nice and steady stream of passive income for years to come.
So, do I recommend it for the average person…probably not.
But, if you’re interested, it’s really quite simple to achieve predictable results, if you’re just willing to put in the time.
All you really need are…
- A domain name
- A web host
- Install a free blogging platform like WordPress
- And start writing hundreds of articles about a specific topic
To help you come up with keyword ideas to write about, I would recommend using a free tool called KeywordTool.io.
As far as how many articles you need to write, as one of my super successful SEO buddies that makes about $90k/month from all his websites told me, “You’re probably only about 500 articles away from making $10k/month”.
I’m not saying you have to write 500 articles…but maybe use that as a benchmark.
With SEO and blogging you’re definitely playing the long game.
So prepare to be patient.
