Blogs are indexed fast by search engines. Opinions about the reasons why vary at the moment but I compare blogs with websites and blog posts with webpages.
The blogs have evolved in way which makes them highly interactive. The owner of the blog can allow the visitors to post their comments. Many blogs allow the use of trackback which make them even more interactive. It is possible to subscribe to RSS feeds of the blogs by which the subscriber gets to know as soon as new posts are made to the blogs.
Savvy business people have realized that blogs can be an excellent way to promote themselves, their business, or make easy money. The most popular way that this is done is through Google Adsense. Using this, bloggers are able to sell advertising off of their blog and collect cash just for keeping a blog. Those with very successful blogs are raking in the cash simply off of their AdSense ads. It is very easy and free to start doing this, and many have cashed in, and in big ways. Some blog hosts have even allowed their users to ad AdSense using the same account, making it even easier to make money with blogs.
By writing regularly (my goal is 4 entries or “posts” per week), seldom does a week go by that I don’t add someone to my network or use what I am writing to make a new connection with an existing or potential Client.
CommentLuv plugin is fantastic for both bloggers and blog commenters. It’s great for commenting because it places a link to your Gamer latest blog post and in my experience many bloggers permit dofollow links to your blog. It’s great for bloggers because there’s a tremendous built-in incentive for people to leave a comment (especially if the commenter publishes a blog).
To eliminate this kind of spam, these kinds of sites need to be found and removed from search engine indices AND the ad division of the search engines need to refuse to allow these sites to publish their ads. The former is more difficult from the latter, but upon finding such sites, I think search engines have an obligation to remove them.
When you do this search you’ll discover blog posts that list blogs that enable dofollow comments. The problem with these blog lists is you’re not the only person commenting on these blogs. Worse yet, usually once the SEO community discovers a blog is dofollow, there’s an ambush of spam comments (called spamments). When this happens, many webmasters turn comments to nofollow. My point is many blogs on these lists available to all are usually nofollow by the time you discover the blogs.
Blogs are a fascinatingly simple, quick, and cheap way to create revenue online. There is essentially no risk involved and there is no overhead, apart from hosting. You can simply set up a free blog, put AdSense on it, and post whatever you want. If you follow the guidelines above, you will soon be on your way to residual income.
