Is it really possible to make $100,000 a year from Google AdSense (or by selling ads on your website/blog)? If so, then the real question is how much traffic do you really need to make big bucks with Google AdSense? While it’s true that we can’t predict the Google AdSense income exactly, we can optimize the ads in different ways so as to make the most out of it.
It’s true, every blogger would have a list of their favorite blogging tools, and I have one too. The other bloggers might not have published one but trust me it exists. Because “bloggers can’t live without tools!”. Seriously! Here is a list of my blogging resources and it includes my favorite internet tools, software, and apps.
The Blogpreneur’s Swiss Army Knife — Over 501 Blogging Tools & Resources by MAHESH MOHAN on January 23, 2016 Bloggers can’t live without tools! I mean, without their favorite blogging tools. And you probably know that there are hundreds of thousands of free and premium blogging tools on the web that lets you streamline your research, writing, and publishing process.
Image Credit: Flickr I do not track my keyword rankings that closely, except in a broad way. And that’s to know whether my overall organic traffic is up or down. A few years back, I have listed a bunch of free Google rank checkers but realized later that free rank trackers do not work. It may work at times when you randomly check it but free rank checkers are not something t ...
You know, you should really repurpose your content. But the disclosure is that I haven’t started it yet. I first came to know about repurposing content when Darren published How to Repurpose Your Content [and Why You Should Do It!]. However, I wasn’t that interested as I didn’t have plenty of blog posts on my blog then.
Google search, Bing search, or Yahoo search. But have you ever tried the DuckDuckGo search? It’s a search engine that doesn’t track you and has everything (like suggestions, image search, video search, etc.) you expect from a search engine. There’s a very good chance that we end up using only the most popular websites on the web because they are just everywhere.
I have always wanted to list all the Microsoft products and services (just like I did Google’s). But Microsoft’s products are really diverse in nature and a good percentage of them are actually targeting companies and business users. Therefore I found it difficult to list all the products in an organized way. Microsoft’s products were mostly desktop applications until a few years ago.
I previously wrote a blog post where I featured over 30 web 2.0 sites to drive traffic to your blog. It focused on traffic generation using social media and web 2.0 sites. So today I’m going to focus on link building using web 2.0 sites. As you probably know, if content is King then links are Queen.
I see three Levels whenever I think of my blogging journey on Minterest. Level 1.0 was the beginning phase (2006-2012) and it was apparently my learning phase too because Minterest was my first WordPress blog and it started as a personal finance journal. And then I started getting very obsessed with writing and spent many, many hours to compose a single blog post and that was Level 2.
A few months ago, I published 30 Things I Absolutely HATE About Your Blog — since then I have been thinking to come up with its reverse topic as well. That is, I wanted to publish a list of 30 things that I LOVE about a blog. Once again, it’s just my personal view and hence there’s a good chance that you would disagree with me — with some or all of them.
Amazon is the largest retailer on the web. I’m not an Amazon fanatic but I like to shop online (or on Amazon). And I believe Amazon will become a lot more bigger than what it is today. For me Amazon was all about online shopping and shopping only until a few years go, and then I came to know about its dominance in the cloud computing space.
Let me be honest. I didn’t even have a vague plan of writing this very blog post. The actual idea was to list all the products, services, and apps by Facebook — just like I did Over 201 Google Products & Services You Probably Don’t Know. And I even started writing this blog post with the title “Over 51 Facebook Products & Services You Probably Don’t Know” only to real ...
It’s been ten years since I started blogging. It began as a fun thing (and it still is!). Also, blogging was just another random stuff that I used to do at that time. But today my blog is much more than a random thing for me, and that’s the only difference. I don’t know if I’m one of the so-called professional blogger or a hobby blogger or yet another nerd.
Are you getting it? Yes, I am absolutely talking about bloggers — professional bloggers to be more specific and not hobby bloggers. If you are a regular reader of Minterest (which I refuse to believe :D) then you probably know that I don’t stop criticizing bloggers (especially the so-called professional bloggers) when they are running a blog only to make money and then brandi ...
I’m assuming that you already know how the web has evolved over the past many, many years. And if you are an 80’s kid then I guess you can perfectly recollect those HTML (actually static) websites in the 90s and early 2000s. Or, you wanna see it? All right. Here you go: Microsoft Apple MSN CNN Thanks Wayback Machine.
I’m no SaaS expert and I don’t know about its best pricing models or strategies. However, I just want to highlight a “best practice” that I have noticed recently which I believe will help you as a marketer. When I did a quick research on the different SaaS pricing models I realized that none of the blog posts I have come across highlighted this particular strategy.
Whenever I visit a blog that I haven’t come across before, I try to find out how different it is from others or what makes it interesting. Not just that. I also notice things that I don’t like in it. Your blog might be very popular. But it wouldn’t stop me from finding things I don’t like. I can’t stop myself from doing it.
Have you ever noticed the “As Seen On” label on many (or at least a few) ‘popular’ blogs by pro-bloggers, agencies, or startups? Or, do you know how easy it is to get featured on some of the most prestigious websites on the web? Well I have realized that it’s a lot more easier to get featured on Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc., Huffington Post, etc.
