Blogging: Your Key to Quick Online Profits

The term 'blog' is a combination of two words; weB and LOG. According to Wikipedia, "A blog is a user-generated web site where entries are made in journal style and displayed in a reverse chronological order."

Long before the term 'blog' was coined, people were keeping journals online and sharing them with family and friends. Most all of these journals were personal in nature. That was back in the old days of what is now referred to as Web 1.0 ... that is, the web as it existed prior to 2001 when the Dot Com bust happened. After the Dot Com bust, Web 2.0 became the reality of the Internet. When the Dot Com bust happened, there were cries that the sky was falling. But what emerged from that chaos is an Internet that is far, far better.

The Internet is no longer driven by web site owners with static web sites who are in full control of all information and information that flows only one way, but rather by web site users and Internet surfers. Information now flows both ways. Blogs and blogging are a part of the major differences between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0. Blogging has become big business.

It doesn't matter what topic an Internet surfer is interested in, there are multiple blogs on every subject imaginable on the Internet. Some of these sites are still personal in nature, but it really didn't take folks long to discover that there was a great deal of money to be made with blogs.

Blogs are great marketing tools, as Internet users and Search Engines love them. Internet users love blogs because they provide them with a wealth of information. Search Engines love the constantly changing unique content and a lot of incoming links. Blogging will provide you with both.

The quickest and easiest way to get started with your own blog is to visit Google's Blogger site. You can get your blog set up in just a few simple steps.

Once you get your blog set up, the key to using this as a powerful marketing tool is to start posting relevant content and recommendations that will be of interest to your target market. This information should be informative and helpful to your readers. You can then provide recommendations and links to the products and/or services you're promoting.

When you start blogging, you really need to post information on a continual basis, as this will keep your readers coming back again and again.

In addition, you will need to market your blog, just like anything else. Although blogging with Google will definitely help, you will also need to let people know about your blog.

Starting your own blog is the quickest and easiest way to get started online. Not only can you add Google Ads to your blog, but you can also join affiliate programs for products and services that target your audience and make recommendations to your readers. You can begin making money almost immediately, depending on how much traffic you drive to your blog.

Blogging provides Internet marketers with a great way to reach their target market. Use them to your fullest advantage.
