Blogging on Blogspot : Blogger is a product by Internet giant Google allows you to create blogs for free on their domain. You would get a sub domain like http://yourchosenname.blogspot.com/ and the hosting is free by blogger.
Maybe you are thinking, ” heck, i knew this way”. If so then my question is how many rupees have you earned from your blogger blog? Only creating blogs will not do, you have to do it right. I know lot of Indian blogger earning good money from free blogs without any investment. You can also build your profitable work from home job with proper guidance and proper implementation
Your ultimate aim is to run Google AdSense ads in your blog in order to earn money. First thing first, you need to make a plan now. Plan about what would be your blog about.
Choosing your Topic : This is extremely important for your online success. If you do it wrong, you are finished before you even start. Ideal topic is something you would love to blog about and a profitable market is there. Most of the times it does not happen, because you might not know anything about a topic where lot of advertisers are there and a lot of buyers as well. One thing here to keep in mind , chasing profitable markets only will not do any good if you do not know the subject assuming you can not hire people to work for you.
Just to help you brainstorm to find a topic I recommend you to visit Topic Ideas
And you need Google Adwords Free Keyword tool to find specific keywords you would write upon. Those who do not know what keyword research is, I recommend reading this.Write your keyword in the keyword field. Put the captcha and click on column to get more options, click on the box left to average CPC, and search.
Now let assume you have put ” Banking Jobs” in the keyword field because you would like to post different latest banking jobs in your blog. Good Idea.
Now let us see what you see in the result after you click search.
Now comes the time to take crucial decision. See the keyword suggestions by free tool and see in which area you are comfortable to write on, check the availability of advertisers, if there is no or less advertisers, you should not go for that. Now check the search volumes both global and local. Search volume is very important because you can not afford to write upon something people do not search at all. Check the average CPC or cost per click value for your desired keyword because your ultimate aim is to earn money and not only writing blog posts.
Update : You will get to see the the average CPC column if you sign in to Adword with your gmail account. Otherwise not.
This average CPC value implies the value of the keyword to the advertisers, when they place ads to Google. More it is, better for you because you can earn more from Adsense.
you are not finished with keyword research, You have to check the competition of webmasters and bloggers for the keyword you are targeting. Search the suggested keyword in Google & check the page ranks (PR) of first 10 result pages /domains. to check PR you have to install Google toolbar to your browser. the Green Bar after bookmark option shows the PR. If it is 3 or below, you can go for it. Otherwise it would be tougher to rank for you for your targeted keyword.
You can put “bank jobs”, “bank jobs in India”, “bank jobs for freshers” like keywords in the keyword field and check the results. Your motto is to find the right keywords which will help you build your internet business.
(Tip: Do not go for high competition keywords, try to choose medium or even low competition keyword with a respectable search volume)
Create your Blog:
Now it’s time to register your free domain in Blogger and getting your blog ready. Go to Blogger and sign in with your Google account. Try to get a domain name with your exact keyword like http://bankjobs.blogspot.com/
In all probability the domain is already taken by someone. Do not loose hope, try to get it with a little variation like http://bankjobshub.blogspot.com/
Give your blog a name. Create your blog. Now go to settings-basic and write a keyword rich description of your blog. Go to template designer and design as you like. You can give your blog a custom look, you need to edit blog template code for that.
Before you start writing you need to remember certain things. On Page SEO or Search Engine Optimization.
I recommend you reading this basic onpage SEO tips for blogger blog
Start writing now with the knowledge you have got. Keep updating your posts. And start doing off-page SEO for your blog. This is all about getting links from other webpages to your blog home page or posts.
If you are in a low competition zone, you could easily rank with basic link building like, blog directory submission, writing on article directory and getting links, guest posting in other related blogs, commenting on related blogs, participating in related forum and getting signature links and directly requesting others to link to you.
gradually you will build up visitors to your blog.
Its time to Apply for Adsense : Go to AdSense and sign up for it. They will send you welcome mail and you can start displaying Google ads in your blog. You will be earning for every click on the ads which you can see in Adsense reports after you sign in. But One thing to keep in mind is, you are eligible to apply after six months from the date of registration of your blog’s domain name.
You will get every guidance regarding insertion of ad code inside your template or customizing the look & feel of the ads for free. Lot of free resources. Not only AdSense you would get lot of other money making programs for free to earn money online in India without investment.
Things to avoid :
- Do not copy articles or any content from other online resources. You will never succeed. Google and other major search engines will dump you.
- Do not click your own ads or provoke someone to do this.
- Do not start writing about making money online until & unless you make a good amount of money online.
- Do not spam on your blog. Blogger police could remove your blog from their server without any sort of notification. Better read their TOS before you begin.
Another easy way to earn is by writing and publishing articles in different Adsense revenue sharing sites using the same techniques explained above. You don’t have to maintain the blog this case. And it’s easy to get your articles indexed in an already established domain like Hubpages, Bukisa, IndiaStudyChannel etc. These websites have records of paying AdSense revenue to the publishers (you) without demanding any investment from you.
Go ahead with proper planning like I have laid out, keep updating your blog, interact with readers, get clicks, earn a lot of money without investment working from home in India.
Update : Those of you who like to work for others indepently (working as a freelancer) should create your profile on freelance sites like Odesk.Com , Elance.Com, Guru.Com etc without spending any money offcourse. Getting Jobs in Odesk.Com is easier than other freelance site as because Odesk.Com has got several low cost freelance jobs. Basically Odesk is a marketplace where frelancers (You) and employers (Those who outsources their jobs to freelancers) can deal with each other. But mind you, just creating a freelacer profile will not ensure winning jobs from Odesk.Com. You need to follow certain steps and strategies to get jobs. You have to create your profile as an expert of a certain type of job which are available on Odesk. For example you can create your profile as a web designer with your portfolio (if you have any) and other details.Odesk has certain tests which you need to appear for and try to get a good score. This way you would become a Odesk certified freelancer and find it easier to win jobs which you need to deliver in a time period by your employer. Payment structure is good enough to live a lifestyle.
