How To Make Money Online By Starting A Blog 2014 – Pinging Your Blog (Module 6)

This is the report that will show you how to “ping” your blog post in the How to Make Money Online By Starting A Blog Series. As any of the other topics discussed throughout the series, this is very essential to the starting a blog process. It is a very simple process as you will see. If for some reason you are not understanding what is being discussed, I recommend just reading this report over again because when the brain goes over information repeatedly, it gains a better understanding. So lets get you started on the topic so you can be on your way with making money online with starting a blog.

What is Pinging?

Pinging is the process that lets the search engines know that your blog has some new content. This is needed in order to have your site indexed or ranked in the search engines. If one does not take the initiative to start the pinging process, it can take 6 weeks or longer for the search engines to be aware that you have a new blog post. Since we are trying to monetize our blog, that is not going to work for us so we need to let them know that we are ready to have our blog post RIGHT AWAY!

How to Ping Our Blog Post?

The pinging process is extremely simple. All one has to do, is once their blog post is published, they would locate the URL of the post and the “title” of the post and submit it to a pinging website. There are many pinging websites, but the ones I use are www.pingler.com and/or www.pingomatic.com which are free and do a great job.

This is the report that will show you how to promote your blog post in the How to Make Money Online By Starting A Blog Series. As any of the other topics discussed throughout the series, this is very essential to the starting a blog process. It is a very simple process as you will see.

So lets get you started on the topic so you can be on your way with making money online with starting a blog.

The blogging scene is getting more mainstream. The reason being is that a website can make somebody online a lot of cash, however to profit with a blog the world needs to know your blog post exist. The approach to do that is to syndicate the post, also known as promoting your post. Presently, what does syndicate a site mean?? As such, you need each blog entry to be presented on various destinations, automatically, and you should simply create the content one time! Beneath will be information from Patrick Ray‘s articles that will demonstrate to you precisely industry standards to syndicate a a blog!

Syndicating your Empower Network Blog Posts Part 1

by Patrick Ray | on October 26, 2012

This is the first part of a series of posts on syndicating your Empower Network blog posts (or any other for that matter).  This series is written mostly for people getting started with the Empower Network or those who are not familiar with the concepts related to syndication.

Why Syndicate your Empower Network Blog?

Have you ever wondered how the search engines such as Google and Bing determine what order to list the results in?  The answer to that question involves the concept of relevance.  The more relevant the content of a page is in relation to the keyword being searched, the higher it will list on a search engine.  One of the factors involved is the domain the post resides on.  If you listen to the weekly audios, you know that the Empower Network is one of the most visited sites on the internet, according to alexa.com. This makes Empower Network what is known as an “authority website” which, by itself, adds relevance to the content on it.  This is one reason why Dave and Dave insist that all members blog daily.  One of the other factors that raise the relevance of your blog is the layout of the blog itself.  For example, are your keywords contained in the title or headers, are they underlined, highlighted or bolded?  Each of these factors in to the relevance.  If you write a blog post in the Empower Network and do not have a green checkmark on every entry item on the SEO score widget, go back and fix your post until you do.  The factors above play a role in determining relevance, but there is a much bigger factor:  Syndicating your Empower Network blog.

So What Exactly is Syndicating your Empower Network Blog?

Syndicating simply means to have your blog post, or more accurately, a link to your post located in several locations on the internet.  Did you ever see an article you liked and shared it on Facebook?  If so, you helped to syndicate that article.  The search engines constantly search the internet for links.  The more times it sees a URL, the more relevant it is, and therefore will list higher when a keyword is searched for.  In order to even get a chance to rank high, syndicating your Empower Network blog posts is an absolute must.

The Second Step To Syndicate A Blog

How to Make Money Online By Starting A Blog – Promote Your Blog Post

Outlets To Syndicate A Blog

In the first article of how to syndicate a blog I discussed why it is important to have one’s blog syndicated. In this article on how to syndicate a blog, I will go over some tools that you should be using to help you syndicate the blog. If you read the article below by Patrick Ray, he will give you the insight the insight that was discussed above.

Syndicating your Empower Network Blog Posts Part 2

My last blog on this topic described the concept of syndication and how it affects search engine results.  This post will show you how to automatically repost links to your Empower Network blog posts onto various social media websites.

Syndicating your Empower Network Blog using Automated Tools

The main tool we will use to begin syndicating your Empower Network blogis a website called IFTTT.com. IFTTT stands for “if this then that”.  The site allows you to set up an action if another (trigger) action occurs.  Specifically, we want IFTTT to look for the presence of a new blog post on your Empower Network RSS feed.  When it detects a new blog post, it will automatically begin syndicating your Empower Network blog on whatever social media site you tell it to.  This programmed action is called a “recipe.”  You will need to create a new recipe for each website you want to post your blog link to.  You will also need an account for each of the websites you want IFTTT to post to, since it posts to your page on each of the websites.

Syndicating your Empower Network Blog, step by step walkthrough:

1. Go to IFTTT.com and set up your account.

2. Open accounts for the following social media sites if you do not already have an account with them:

Diigo

Hootsuite

Instapaper

Readability

Zootool

Storify

Tumblr

Bitly

Google Reader (this site can use your Gmail login info)

Delicious

Flickr (this site can use your Yahoo login info)

Twitter

Each of the sites listed above will be the ones automatically posted to on your behalf.  You may notice that Facebook is not listed above.  This is because, as of right now, Facebook completely blocks everything from Empower Network.  If you try syndicating your Empower Network blog to Facebook, IFTTT will just give you an error. If you want to use IFTTT to syndicate stuff other than Empower Network RSS feeds, Facebook should accept it, but the main focus of this blog is syndicating your Empower Network blog.

3. Once you have accounts set up for the sites listed above, go to your Empower Network blog and then open a new browser window and go to IFTTT and log in to your account.  It should open up to a page called the dashboard.  Find the button that says “Create a Recipe” and click it.

4. It brings up a new page with the word “THIS” highlighted.  Click on it and this it will bring up a list of “trigger channels.” Click on the icon labelled “Feed” (orange icon third one over in the third row).  This gives two options.  Click the one on the left (New feed item).

5. The next step is to tell IFTTT the URL of the RSS feed it needs to monitor.  This can be obtained by going back to the browser window with your Empower Network blog.  Find the icon on the right side of the menu bar that says “Subscribe to Link” and right-click on it to bring up a menu box.  Click on the option that says “Copy Link” or something similar.  The exact wording will vary depending on what browser you use but it should be easy to figure out the correct one.  Go back to IFTTT and then paste the URL you just copied.  My URL is /patrickray/feed/?id=patrickray. Obviously yours will have your Empower Network user name instead of mine.  Once you are satisfied the correct URL is entered into IFTTT, click on “Create Trigger.”

6. The next step is to create an action for that trigger.  Continue by clicking “THAT”, which brings up a list of “action channels.” Click on any one of the channels associated with the social media sites listed above. The first time you use a particular action channel, IFTTT will prompt you to activate that channel.  Basically this asks for your login credentials for that site, which IFTTT needs since it will be posting on your behalf.  Once you activate a channel, you can select an action for that channel.  The specific options for each channel will vary based on what type of website it is, but you will want to select an option such as “post message” or “post bookmark.” When given the option of posting a “public” or “private” bookmark, always opt for “public.”

7. The next step allows you to customize your post if you want to.  This is optional and I just accept the default option by clicking “Create Action.”

8. The last step allows you to add a brief description of the recipe.  This is for your own information and is optional.  The last thing you need to do is click “Create Recipe” and then you are done.  The next time you make an Empower Network blog post, a link to it will automatically be syndicated to the site you just made the recipe for.

9. You are not done yet, though.  You need to repeat this process for each of the other sites you want to syndicate to.  I realize this is a lot of work upfront, but you only need to do this once for each site you syndicate to.

Syndicating your Empower Network blog has two main benefits: First, the more places it is posted, the more people are likely to click the link and go to your blog post.  More importantly though it what it will do for your search engine results.  Instead of Google seeing your blog URL in one location, it will see it in multiple locations, all linking back to your blog, making it more relevant.

After doing this, you are still not done with syndicating your Empower Network Blog.  My next post will discuss how to get other people to help you out by syndicating your Empower network blog for you.  Click here for more on syndicating your Empower Network blog.

So lets get you started on the topic so you can be on your way with making money online with starting a blog.

This is the first step in the blog marketing process. You might be asking what do I want to write a blog post about? You can write a blog post about anything. Anything that you can offer of value in a blog post will be useful to somebody on the internet. You do not have to be an expert on the subject matter, but the information that you offer will be more than someone is informed about and find your information useful.

So if you are a mother, write a blog post about parenting and/or raising kids because there are people that are curious on how to be a parent. If you own a business, give information about a product that your business offers and how it can be of use to someone. Maybe, you just went through a divorce and you want to outline the struggles and how to overcome them. Maybe you are a person of faith and want to give people better understandings of your faith’s teachings. In the end, the blog post is your soap box and you can share whatever valuable information you see fit.

How To Make Money Online By Starting A Blog 2014 – Optimizing Your Blog Post (Video 5)

How To Make Money Online By Starting A Blog 2014 – Optimizing Your Blog Post  (Module 5)

 

This is the report that will show you how to optimize your blog post in the How to Make Money Online By Starting A Blog Series. As any of the other topics discussed throughout the series, this is very essential to the starting a blog process. It is a very simple process as you will see. If for some reason you are not understanding what is being discussed, I recommend just reading this report over again because when the brain goes over information repeatedly, it gains a better understanding. So lets get you started on the topic so you can be on your way with making money online with starting a blog.

When optimizing a blog post, there are just a few things that have to be considered to help your blog post rank well in the search engine. When your blog post ranks well, that means that one will receive traffic for free from the search engine. When traffic (people visiting your site) is coupled with great content on the blog post, that will help you to making money online. You will need to use formatting, backlinking, optimizing of pictures and/or photos, a call to action.

Title Tags

When starting your blog, it is essential that you use different title tags throughout the post. A “H1 tag” should be used for the title of the article. Then I suggest placing the title again, with a slight variation, in the start of the post and using an “H2 tag.” Then continue using tags throughout the post if the post calls for them.

how_to_make_money_online_by_starting_a_blog-optimizing_a_post-tags

Keyword Formatting

This is the part where one needs to place their keywords in bold letters and italics. When the search engines look for sites that they want to rank, they take into account the formatting on the blog post.

how_to_make_money_online_by_starting_a_blog-optimizing_a_post-tags

When Using Videos and Pictures

When one chooses to use a video and/or picture in their blog, they should perform some techniques that will help with their post ranking.  The file names of the videos or the pictures should be the title of the blog post. In doing this, this is something that the search engines think highly of because everything is “keyword rich” with your blog article.

how_to_make_money_online_by_starting_a_blog-optimizing_a_post-tags

 

how_to_make_money_online_by_starting_a_blog-optimizing_a_post-tags

Outbound Links and Backlinking

This is when you link to a similar article using your keyword or a subject matter in your article. This will also help with other people linking back to your article, which helps with increasing your search engine optimization.

how_to_make_money_online_by_starting_a_blog-optimizing_a_post-tags

Call to Action

When writing a blog post, there always need to be a “call to action.” This is where you tell your audience some type of action that you would like them to take while reading your article.  For example, if you wrote a blog post reviewing a product, at the end of the article you might say, “To order this product go to the link below.” This is very important and can increase sales or increase the amount of actions taken on your blog post.

How To Make Money Online By Starting A Blog 2014 – Keyword Research (Module 4)

 

This is the report that will show you how to do keyword research in the How to Make Money Online By Starting A Blog Series. As any of the other topics discussed throughout the series, this is very essential to the starting a blog process. It is a very simple process as you will see. If for some reason you are not understanding what is being discussed, I recommend just reading this report over again because when the brain goes over information repeatedly, it gains a better understanding. So lets get you started on the topic so you can be on your way with making money online with starting a blog.

Now, that you have your content. We need to make sure that we optimize the content when writing the article to place on the blog. There are two ways to do this. There is a really easy way and then an easy way.

The really easy way is to simply think of what people would type in the search bar of “Google” when they search for your content.  When you do this there will be an auto-populate mechanism that takes places. The title that comes up from this will be what is searched often in “Google” The way to use this information is by whatever shows up in the auto-populate fields, you need to have that phrase in the title of your article. For example, if I made an article on “training dogs to stay.” I would go to “Google” and see what comes up in the auto-populate field

How_to_make_money_online_by_starting_a_blog_kewords

I would then come up with a title using that phrase. The title I came up with would be “Effective Techniques on How To Train Dog To Stay.” Notice that I did not change it to “….Train A Dog To Stay.” I kept it the way it was because that will better optimize my post according to Google’s analytics.

The second way takes a little more time but it is fairly easy as well. You would use a tool provided by Google. The tool is called Google Keyword Planner. In order to use this tool you do have to sign up for a Google Adwords account which is free. This tool will actually give you more detailed data on the keywords you are trying to use in your title. The first step is to come up with some keywords people would type into the search results to find the information shared in your video. Same as what was talked about in the really easy method above. Second, you would type those into the Google Keyword Planner tool and see the results it returns. Ideally, I would be looking for something that is being search a lot on a monthly basis globally but has low competition.   Then I would use that keyword phrase in my title. See the example below.

How To Make Money Online By Starting A Blog 2014 (Video 1)

How To Make Money Online By Starting A Blog 2014 (Module 1)

If anyone wants to make money online in this day of age, they definitely should be starting a blog. There are multiple reasons why starting a blog will increase sales if you already have an existing business or can help you start making money online if you have never made money before. In this series of reports I will be discussing why to use a blog, the difference between a blog and website, how and where to start a blog, creating the content for the blog, researching keywords for your blog post, optimizing the blog post, getting the blog post indexed in the search engines with pings, and then promoting your blog to be seen by the masses. The information taught in the reports will be of great value, so lets get started with teaching you how to start making money online by starting a blog.

What is a blog?

A blog is essentially a website. It is just a certain type of website that one can constantly ad content. In other words, one can consider a blog to be similar to an online journal

Who needs a blog?

If you are trying to make money online or want to promote a cause or take a stance or a certain issue. Then starting a blog will help one get their message or their product to the masses. The internet is a resource that one should have in their toolbox. The website that receives the most traffic is “Google,” and with a blog it gives you the opportunity to capitalize on those billions of visitors. Now, you do need some strategy to be placed behind your blog, but that is what the “How to Make Money Online By Starting A Blog Series” is for. To sup everything up, if you have an offline business, online business, or just want your voice to be heard, you need a blog.

Starting A Blog Versus A Regular Website

There are many similarities with a blog and a website, but a blog is more beneficial if you want to make money online.

Similarities

  • Is on the internet
  • Can have customized designing
  • Must have a hosting company

Differences

  • Blog is constantly changing whereas a website is static (doesn’t change often)
  • Blog communicates with an audience whereas a website just gives information
  • Blog can be changed easily whereas a website one must be technical
  • Blogs are easier to index in the search engines because of the constant flow of information

How To Make Money Online By Starting A Blog – Flow Chart Of Topics

The topics mention below should be treated like a flow chart on how to go about starting a blog. I suggest following them in the order they are listed below if you are new to blogging. However, if you feel you have firm grasp on the topic in the title, then feel free to skip around.

The Blog I Highly Recommend

Everyone needs to know that all blogs are not created equal. The methods that are discussed throughout this report cannot be used unless you have a blog that allows you to make money online. Free blogs will not allow you to monetize the blog and if you break their guidelines, you can have your blog site shut down. The blog I am recommending allows you to sell or promote things online and you are in control of the hosting. With a free blog one is not in control of how much traffic they send to computer servers and this is the same for some of the low cost hosting companies as well. If one’s blog starts to generate a lot of visitors, aka traffic, the low cost or free blogs can tell you that you need to pay a higher premium if you want us to maintain this amount of traffic. Therefore, that leads me to my recommendation of a blog. The blog is very low cost, you can send as much traffic as you can think of, it is built for businesses, it is easily customizable, it is built for expert and novice bloggers, the platform helps promote your blog post to the world, and the community gives you training on the latest and greatest strategies that are making bloggers money online. Heck…this blogging platform as helped people make over 63 million dollars in sales (ranging from novice to blogging exports).The thing is that you can only get access to this blog unless you are referred by someone. So, since I have access to this blogging community, I am going to share it with you since you are trying to make your online presence be known! Go to the link below, enter your email address, and you will gain access to the information that will allow you access to the community and the blogging platform that was mentioned.

Kevin Durant Cry’s and Gives Mothers Day Gift During MVP Speech

Kevin Durant Cry’s and Gives Mothers Day Gift During MVP Speech

Kevin Durant Cry's and Gives Mothers Day Gift During MVP Speech

Kevin Durant gave one of the most heart felt speeches that anyone has ever seen. Kevin Durant had almost every person in the room without a dry eye, including his mother. Kevin Durant’s MVP speech included thanking many people and telling his mother that she was “the real MVP.” One can see the speech and read more about the MVP ceremony, courtesy of the The New Yorker.

Kevin Durant – MVP Speech

 

Last week, after the Oklahoma City Thunder fell behind the Memphis Grizzlies in their first-round series, and it appeared that the Thunder would make another early exit from the playoffs, the local paper ran a big photo of Kevin Durant under the headline, “MR. UNRELIABLE.” It was a rare moment of disquiet in a town that has offered mostly unconditional love for the team and for its star, which both arrived, from Seattle, before the 2008 season. The paper’s sports editorquickly apologized for being “unduly harsh.” But the headline was fed by a growing sentiment, taken up by fans and sportswriters around the country, that Durant lacked some essential killer instinct in the big games, that he might not be ready or able to lead his team to a championship, and that he was, therefore, a vitally flawed player.

On Tuesday, as he accepted the N.B.A.’s Most Valuable Player award, at the end of a season in which he led the league in scoring for the fourth time, Durant held a public celebration / press conference. It did not answer the question of whether or not he will ever win a championship but, instead, rendered that question largely inconsequential. In wide-ranging remarks, and often fighting through tears, Durant thanked his teammates, his coaches, his friends, and his family. Durant also addressed the fans, many of whom had showed up to celebrate outside of the Thunder’s old practice facility, where the event was taking place. “This city, all they want us to be is ourselves,” he said. “You love us how we are. We’re all a work in progress as men, and you still love us.”

The idea of championships as the ultimate expression of athletic success has gained a firm grip on the basketball psyche in recent years, bolstered by former greats, like Karl Malone and Charles Barkley, who continue to be held to account for their near-misses and their teams’ failures. It has been peddled especially hard by the kinds of sportswriters who often fret about players’ so-called legacies. The looming shadow of history seems omnipresent, as if moments no longer matter in real time but only in how they will change the rankings of the best and worst of all time. But this is a myopic kind of fandom, and it confuses what a spectator wants—which is to vicariously win something—with the myriad experiences that a player might hope to accumulate in his career. Durant offered another way: the Thunder are still alive in the playoffs, but, regardless of what happens, this was his championship moment. And it could be the fans’ moment, too—surely as meaningful and as thrilling as getting to see him riding on the back of a float holding a trophy.

Unlike the aggressive, competitive, and sometimes vicious player whom we watch on the court, Durant was open, vulnerable, emotionally brave, and sincere. He reminded everyone not only of his own humanity but also of that of his teammates. They joined him onstage, and he took the time to address each of them, often sharing deeply personal stories. Many were fighting tears, too. This was just an acceptance speech for a league award, not something like the State of the Union, and so the theatrics were a little over the top, but moving nevertheless—like a wedding speech that goes on for way too long but which you never want to end. He spoke at length about Russell Westbrook. He told him that he loved him, and it didn’t seem like mere jock hyperbole. Durant mentioned that the team’s equipment guy had given him a hug and said, “This is my first M.V.P.”

Yet Durant’s most memorable remarks, the kind of thrilling moment that indeed will be remembered in history, came when he spoke about his family. He told his brother, step-brother, and father that he loved them, and then he spoke to his mother, Wanda:

The odds were stacked against us. Single parent with two boys by the time you were twenty-one years old. Everybody told us we weren’t supposed to be here. We moved from apartment to apartment by ourselves. One of the best memories I had was when we moved into our first apartment. No bed, no furniture, and we just all sat in the living room room and just hugged each other. We thought we’d made it.

Durant told his mother, “We weren’t supposed to be here. You made us believe. You kept us off the street. You put clothes on our backs. Food on the table. When you didn’t eat, you made sure we ate. You went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. You’re the real M.V.P.” The N.B.A. should broadcast Durant’s speech this Mother’s Day, and on every one after it. Even the most jaded SuperSonics fan would have to grant that the moment was not only a sports dream but also the American dream come to life. Talk about making it.
