How to Make Money Online Primer

Hi again all you honest people out there! My last post Indexing Search Engines?, was a shortish info article about how you shouldn't expect to stay static in the SERPs especially with newish sites due to the more fluid approach the search engines seem to be taking with their indeces.

Well, that aside, many people are still floundering around trying to figure out how to make some decent money via the of the green stuff!

Well, one of the not so well kept secrets to the whole ethos of the easiest way of making money online is really to stay out of the MMO arena altogether. Instead, make sure you concentrate on far less competitive niches. While that may sound, to a newcomer to be gobbledygook, it's actually a proven fact and one worth taking note of.

The MMO niche is so saturated with everybody and his dog trying to earn easy money from the Internet that the vast majority (I'm talking 95% plus here) simply are not actually making enough to cover the cost of their cheap hosting account.

The smart money is in the less competitive niches where there is less cash to be made but a heck of a better chance of making it.

So the honest advice for today is to find a few low competition niches where people have a need for something, be it a product or information, then build your sites to target the long tail keywords associated with those niches.

Build relevant, original content on and links to your sites, because that's the only way you're going to get any authority in each of the search engines' index placements, which will send targeted traffic to your site, then put up your ads, be they PPCm affiliate or lead generation and you should start seeing the dollars coming in. Not in great wads, but a steady stream that you can then build upon by targeting more fresh, low competition niches.

While all that's happening and you can see the moolah start to appear in your paypal or bank account, then you can start on the very long term projects of targeting more competitive niches.
