    Is writing about "how to make money" the way to make money?

    This seems to be very popular all over the internet and leaves me wondering - are articles about money the ones that really make money?

    Any article that provides useful information by helping others is the way to go.

    They can make money... if you know what you're talking about.  If you don't, then you probably won't.  You need to know how to make money before you can teach others.

    That's not how I make most of my money though.

    I have the same suspicion as you. Those who write "how to make money" seem to hope to make some money they didn't get in other ways, that way !

    What goes around comes around.  If you truly help others, you will benefit.  If there is not a fair value exchange, the enterprise will fail.

    actually it is because you're helping others to learn what you're already doing and if you're doing it right you're getting compensated good.

    Sure, you can make money if you really know what can make people rich.

    I suppose for some people it is the way to make money.  Frankly, the topic gets recycled over and over and over.  Written differently but saying pretty much the same thing.  I get it already!!!

    C.V and Bobbi you make a good point
    But yah I reckon the writing is really a key point for readability. Personally I have come across many "how to make money" articles. If they knew how to make money why are they desperately trying to lure people to read a page with Adsense on it?

    Strangely it is indeed. This is a very well known way to make money but saturated quite heavily now.

    Yes you can make money about this topics but you have to choose your sub niche and your long tail keywords.

    LOL - you're right, all of these "gurus" selling their how to make money courses only actually make money from people trying to find a way to make ends meet.

    They're nearly all scams, there's a good explanation here: … ick-scams/

    and here: … ck-scheme/

    You can make money on any topic, assuming there is enough interested people. On the subject of 'making money', the subject is huge and very popular, putting aside how many of the people actually make money themselves (which is a prerequisite for giving advice in my book).

    To put a little meat on the bones. Online poker is very popular. There are 1.5 Million monthly searches globally on Google. There are 5 Million searches monthly across the globe for 'How to Make Money' and 3.35 Million searches for 'Get Money' (which is not as competitive as you think). So no problem with demand.

    As many answers have pointed out - seeing the wood from the trees is a completely different story. To really answer your question, no they are not the ones to 'really' make money - just another topic that can generate revenue streams. Keep in mind that with the huge demand, it is more difficult to rank in the SERPS.

      Only problem is that everyone writes about making money.  While there are over 3 million searches there are probably well over a million sites out there about how to make money.  To make money,write about something with demand, but with low comp.

      Finally, I have been searching all over the internet to find a company that does what it says in terms of paying members for their work.  A couple of months ago, a friend of mine introduced
