How To Make Money Writing Articles Online
Writing Articles Online
My goal of earning money from home has been achieved. Here are some articles I have written to help you too.
I have been successfully writing articles for years for publication in magazines.
When I realised there were great opportunities on the internet I made the switch and started writing online instead.
I show you how to join the Google Adsense Affiliate Program and the Amazon program. I also advise you which articles to write and some SEO rules you need to follow.
Google Affiliate Network
Do you want to make money writing online? Do you want to be paid for your articles and blog posts on writing sites and your own blogs?
How to Join Google Adsense as an Affiliate
To do this successfully the most important thing you must do is to join and be accepted as a Google Adsense Affiliate.
How to Create a Google Blog
Write a blog and add Google Adsense and Amazon adverts to earn money online
If you do not feel confident yet in writing a full 500 to 2000 word article then you can set up a free Google blog and still earn money from writing short and interesting blog posts.
Step by Step Instructions
I show you in easy steps how to add your Google Adsense ads and Amazon adverts to this and other Google Blogs.
When your readers click on the ads you earn money. When your readers buy online from your Amazon adverts then you make money too.
I also explain the easy process of signing up for these accounts.
There are YouTube videos on this article that shows you exactly how to set up a Google Blog.
The Rules of SEO
In this article I explain in detail how to optimize your chances of getting ranked higher on the search engines.
The specific area I concentrate on is the first and last paragraphs of your article. What you need to include there and how to set it out.
I also give some important tips on how to write in a way to keep the reader on your article page longer. Keep the reader happy and you increase your chances that they will click on the Google Adsense ads on your page.
Successful How To Articles
Most new writers have their own particular interests that they concentrate their articles on.
They may have two or three main subjects that they know a lot about and therefore enjoy writing on their favourite subjects.
I believe this is how most writers start out, myself included. You will find others who share your interest and therefore will attract many readers online.
But at some stage you will need to find a new market to write for.
How To Articles
A well written How To article can be very successful if it is done right. I do make money from all my articles but not as much as those I write that are targeted at the How To readers.
There are many ways to increase traffic to your articles
I explain one of them here that works very well for me. These readers come to my article because they share the same interest as I do and therefore are already willing to read the article in full.
Writing about a particular subject no matter what it is will be easy for experienced writers because they have their own interests that they have abundant knowledge and expertise in.
They love sharing their passion with other people because it is something they need to do.
There are millions of groups on Facebook of every single possible interest no matter how obscure. You only need to find and join these groups and join.
I give examples of some of the subjects I write about and how the Facebook groups specific to these subjects get me many new readers.
I also explain in detail how to find and join a group on Facebook.
