Have you ever read a website that claims you can make money online? Have you ever been hooked by the tantalizing lure of easy money?
There’s lots of shady characters, lots of dirty deals Ev’ry name’s an alias, in case somebody squeals It’s the lure of easy money, it’s got a very strong appeal : Glenn Frey – Smuggler’s Blues Lyrics | MetroLyrics
Why do people fall for the claims of “make money fast and effortlessly“? We’re all looking for a better life, for things to improve in our situations. I don’t care if you’re a billionaire or homeless, or a comfortable middle-class family man – we all have things in our lives that we wish to change and make better. Alot of the time, money is at the the root or the cause of the issues, and we see MORE money as the cure for those issues.
In my last article, I talked about whether Internet Marketing is a workable means to make money online. I argued that it is a very lucrative means to do exactly that – IF you know what you’re doing. Essential to making money online is knowing what you need to do.
There are hundreds of thousands if not millions of websites and web pages around the internet teaching about make money online. This phrase (or “keyword”) is one of the most searched-for terms in Google and the other search engines. If I search for “make money online” using this nifty little helpful website , I get immediately to the “last page”, where I see 913 results. I’m sure you will see different results depending on whether you are logged in to Google or not, and what part of the world you’re from. 913 results doesn’t sound like alot of people are really writing websites about “make money online”, does it? Well, it’s a little known fact that Google only gives the first 1000 results in any search. For a term (or “keyword”) such as “make money online“, which is so over-used, Google has to be selective about the search results it serves up. Google’s algorithm’s start by considering such things as:
- Site Name containing the words Make Money Online
- Page or Post Title containing the words
- First line of the post or page including the words
- Good on-page Search Engine Optimization
- Proper use, attribution and alt-text on images
- Internal and external linking
- Site age
- TLD or Subdomain
- Site content originality, length and long tail keyword usage
- Frequency of posting content
- Proper use of the H1 and H3 tags
- Good keyword usage and no keyword-stuffing
- Duplicate Content or lack thereof
Do you know how to do all these things properly?
Do you think without knowing how to do these things that you could “make money online“. It’s likely you won’t make it into the first 913 page results that I turned up, unless you know all of the above. And more… So how do you find out how to do what it takes to make money online?
