In Ruby de Vera’s From blogger to book author, you’ll read about Nicanor “BatJay” David, Jr.’s success with his second book “Mga Kwento ng Batang Kaning Lamig” (Stories of kids who eat cold rice).
You’ll also find this:
Earlier this year he even took out Google Adsense from his blog, as he wants it now purely to be about his stories, with no commercial value.
I then remembered his friends at the second book launch, and the Adsense tips shared. If you don’t want Adsense in your blog, you can always start a different web site. Afterall, you are not limited to just one site. You can have as many sites as you can handle, some of which are completely non-commercial.
(For example, Viloria.net will not have any AdSense ads either. Well… at least not for now. Hehehe.)
Anyway, Ruby’s article also has this about BatJay and health:
He did lose the pounds, and now he says he feels healthier. As a reward, he got himself a brand new HDTV. Also, the company he works for pays their employees $2 a day for jogging or biking to work.
Going back to AdSense and MMO, some sites are like employees who jog or bike daily: they earn about $2 a day.
But what about those of you who want to make money online and earn $10 to $30 a day? Try these online business models:
Make Money For Beginners
Griz provides free tips on how to earn online, using free Blogger/Blogspot blogs. Zero domain costs, no monthly hosting fees. But you do have to conduct proper keyword research, and write long entries. There are also some hints about how to rise up in the search engines.
Court succeeds with a site that does not even contain money-related terms in the domain name.
Vic Franqui dispenses free advice on how to quickly make money online: Build BANS sites (aim for 100 sites), and get those bookmarked in various social bookmarking sites.
His key lesson: Build pages and get relevant keyword anchored links.
What’s an anchored link? In the case of Griz’s site above, you’ll notice the link is called “Make Money for Beginners” — that’s a relevant keyword anchored link. It is relevant because the site is about making money online, and it is keyword-rich because some people search for the phrase “make money” in Google, for example.
In other words, the example link above (in the case of Griz) are much better than “click here”, right? That doesn’t mean to say, however, that “click here” links are useless. They are still, in some cases, advantageous.
Anyway, the key thing to remember is that there are many ways to make money online, and there are also a lot of different reasons to put up web sites. Whether you choose the non-commercial, commercial, or combination route, just please remember to stay healthy physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. Though not necessarily in that order. 🙂
