Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my personal relationships and blogging.

When I first started getting into Internet Marketing and Blogging, I knew that it was something that I wanted to do from that moment on. Basicly, I was hooked.

I initially started out building my own websites to offer affiliate products. Then about 6 months later, as a way to promote my websites, I started my first blog. From that point on, I blogged almost every single day.

Unfortunately, this caused my personal relationships to suffer. I would be building my websites, blogging, and trying to drive traffic to my sites all day long. I actually believed those money making programs out there that said "Become A Millionaire While You Sleep". I'm sure that you know the ones I am talking about. Chances are if you haven't purchased one of these programs yourself, you know someone who has.

Needless to say, the program didn't work, I am not a millionaire. (Not Yet Anyway) Even though I should be, I did everything they said to do, except for, spend thousands of dollars upgrading to a "pro-membership" status with the program. What a joke!

However, the money that I did earn was actually from the blog that I had started just to drive traffic to my affiliate websites. So I gave up on those affiliate sites to become more of a full-time blogger.

I love to blog, but I learned real quick that blogging alone can take up most of your time. It wasn't until after my laptop was damaged, that I realized just how much time that I did spend on my blogs.

I know now, that it is important to find a good in-between. You have to take time out of your day to be with the people that you love. What I decided to do is set myself a schedule. I promised my wife that I would only be on the computer for a certain amount of time everyday. For the most part I stick to that schedule. This makes everyone much more happy, especially my two boys, Tyson who is 9 and Aiden he is 4, he is also a real "Daddy's Boy".

So make sure you are putting the computer to the side long enough to spend time with the important people in your life.

Let me know how you feel about this topic, and remember to check back often for more tips about how to make money online blogging with Google AdSense.

NOTE: I still use affiliate Programs, I just don't build websites for them anymore. I also promote affiliate products on my blogs. They are still a good way to make extra money!

Most of the posts that I write are about things that you Should Do to build a better blog.

Today I wanted to change gears a little bit and talk about something that you Should NOT do when building your blog.

When trying to establish your blog as a reliable source for information, it is important to have your blog come accross that way to readers.

A great way to establish your blog, is to build your blog's PR. (Page Rank) By doing this, it will show other people that your blog is important. At least that's what the search engines like Google say. Of course we all know that if your blog receives a high PR, that means your blog has got a lot of back-links pointing to it. After all, if your blog has hundreds of links poining back to it, you must have some good information available, right!

Because we all know the thing that makes a blog receive a high Page Rank is back-links, some bloggers are tempted to use "Link Farms" to try and get them. This is what you Should Not do!

However, Google will actually penalize blogs that get too many back-links, in a short period of time. For example: if you start a brand new blog at the beginning of the month, and then by the end of the month you have hundreds of back-links to your new blog, the search engines are going to know whats going on. Plus once you are associated with using link-farms, that will always stick with you. Not a good reputation to have if you want to build a career out of blogging.

Just to be on the safe side, you should try to get back-links to your blog the same way the rest of us do, by leaving comments, exchanging links with other bloggers, and the natural way, which is people linking to you because you have good content. I have written a couple posts on these things in the past, Building Backlinks To Your Blog and Increasing Your Page Rank.

I hope this convinces you NOT to use link farms. If you have anything that you would like to add, please leave a comment below. Until next time, good luck!

If you have been blogging for a while then you know that sometimes it can be hard to come up ideas for blog posts.

I have a couple of tips that will help you to keep your blog ideas flowing.

After about 6 months of blogging I had run into a wall, I was finding it hard to come up with ideas for new blog posts.

Some days I would have a million topics running through my head, and then when I would sit down at my laptop I would draw a blank.

Here are 3 idea generating tips that I still use to this day to creat new posts;

  • Carry a small note-pad and pen. This way when you have those great post ideas pumping through your brain, you can write them down for later.
  • See what others are blogging about. Visiting other blogs in your niche is a great way to keep up with your competition and get some good blog post ideas. (Don't ever copy another persons post)
  • Look at your old posts. Go through the posts you have written in the past, and do a part 2, or a part 3 to a previously written post. (Or do a whole series of posts on a certain topic)
These 3 things have helped me to keep creating fresh new content for my blogs, and I am sure they will help you too. Leave a comment and tell me your thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by the Bloogle AdSense Blog. Remember to keep working at it, and as always, good luck!

No matter what your blog's topic is, Google Analytics can help you to get more traffic.

Every single day of the week, I like to check my Google Analytics stats for the previous day. Google Analytics is my favorite blogging tool.

You can use Google Analytics to get all kinds of different information about your blog. You can use it to see;

  • How many visits your blog received on a certain day.
  • Which visits were unique visitors. (First time visitors)
  • The search engine your visitors found you in.
  • What keywords are being used to find your blog.
  • See what blog posts get the most traffic.
I like to use this information to help me to get more traffic to my blog. The way I do this is, I look at the different keywords and keyword phrases that my blog shows up for in the search engines.

Then I take one of those keyword phrases that I am not getting a lot of visits for, mabey one or two visits a week, then I write a couple of posts using those certain keywords.

The reason I focus on the keywords that I don't get a ton of visits for, is because that shows me that my blog pops up for these keyword phrases at least sometimes. If I write more blog posts using those certain keywords, I will start showing up in the search results a lot more for those keywords. Which of course will get me more traffic to my blog.

Hopefully this will give you a new way to get more traffic to your blog as well. Let me know what you think, be sure to leave a comment.

Keep posting often, and until next time, good luck!

A Pro-Blogger State Of Mind

Posted by Brian Connole | 1/11/2010 | , | 0 comments »

Becoming a Pro-Blogger is so much more than just having a blog that you post to everyday.

In order to reach the level of Pro-Blogger, you must first have a Pro-Blogger state of mind. Most people don't just wake up one day and say I want to blog for a living.

Usually, like in my case, you will start a blog for one reason or another and you will just love doing it. I actually started out blogging as a way to promote my websites.

I had created a handful of websites when I first started online. My plan was to use those websites to market affiliate products. Along the way I learned that blogging is a great way to promote websites. From there, I found that I just really enjoyed blogging.

It's kind of exciting to see a blog that you have built, become more active with visitors and start to rank high for popular keywords in the search engines. I am still glad to get new followers.

You have to believe in yourself and be able to take advice. I am consantly learning new things about blogging. Building a good blog and becoming a Pro-Blogger will take some time, but if you love doing it that part won't matter.

Now I am not saying that I'm a Pro-Blogger, I still have a ways to go before I can claim that title. However, I can definitely say that I have a Pro-Blogger state of mind.

Let me know what you think. Leave me a comment below, and if you like this post, please make sure to share it with your friends.

Until next time, stay in that Pro-Blogger state of mind, and as always, good luck!

Writting descriptive blog posts is one of the best things that you can do for your readers.

I can't count how many times I have been looking for information on a topic, and the only thing I end up finding, is a vague, un-descriptive blog post on the subject. It is very frustrating to say the least!

That is why it is so important to be descriptive. Write your blog posts like you are trying to explain something to a child. Give details and examples.

I like to try and write like I am the only person with a blog on the topic. (Far from it) If you want people to look at you like an expert on the subject, then you have to write like it.

At the same time you don't want to put your readers to sleep. Try not to sound to much like a dictionary. Just try and write like you are passionate about what you are blogging.

I hope this helps some of you to be more descriptive in your blog posts. Let me know what you think about this or any other blog post here on the Bloogle AdSense Blog. (Leave a comment)

Until next time, work smart not hard, and good luck!

Blogging Tip

Posted by Brian Connole | 1/07/2010 | , | 0 comments »

Today's blogging tip is about Not Giving All Of Your Tips Away In One Post...

When you post an article or tip to your blog, it is important that you give your readers good quality information. ut at the same time you don't want to give away everything that you know about the subject all in one post.

I used to have this problem myself. When I first started getting serious about blogging, my posts were very long, with huge paragraphs.

There are a few reasons why you do not want to do this.

1. If you write long articles, people might feel a little overwhelmed when they try to read it.
2. Giving too much information away in each post, will not leave you anything to write a couple of weeks down the road.
3. If your paragraphs are too big, it makes it harder for our eyes to follow and keep our place.

Here are a couple of things you want to do when posting to your blog.

1. You want to write good content but keep your article focused on one tip.
2. If you have a lot of information on a certain subject, break it up into a few different posts. (example: part-1, part-2, part-3)
3. Use small paragraphs. Keep your paragraphs to about 2 or 3 sentences.

Using these tips should help to make your blog posts more reader friendly.

Make sure to keep checking back with us for more tips on how to make money online blogging with Google AdSense. Until next time, good luck!

I know that in the past we have talked a little bit about building your blogs Page Rank by creating back-links to your blog.

Visiting other blogs that you like and commenting on their posts, are one of the easiest ways to build a ton of back-links.But there are a actually couple of good reasons you would want to leave a comment on another blog. 

Not only does it create a back-link to your blog, which will help to increase your blogs Page Rank, but it can also help to drive targeted traffic to your blog if it's done the right way.

The best way to drive targeted traffic to your blog with your comments, is by visiting and commenting on other popular blogs that are on the same topic as your blog. The trick is to try and be one of the first people to comment on a post right after it is posted.

A good way to make sure you are one of the first is to sign up for their RSS feed for their blog posts and some blogs have the option to sign up to the comments through RSS too. 

This way if the blog you are commenting on gets a lot of visitors, some of thos visitors will read your comment and if they like what you have to say they might click on your link and visit your blog.

This is how you get the targeted traffic that you want. Because, if the blog that they see your comment on is on the topic as yours, then it is likely that they are going to be interested in your blog as well.

I hope this helps you to get a lot of targeted traffic and back-links to your blog.

To build a successfull blog that helps you to make money online, you have to take blogging seriously.

You have to treat blogging like you would any other company out there.

When a person starts a business or buys into a franchise, they usually take it pretty seriously, because they have invested a lot money into getting it started. 

But because most people start a blog for little or no money at all, they don't think of it like a business, although they should.

Try to treat your blog like you've invested a lot of money into it. After all blogging does take time, and time is money.

If you really do want to have a successful blog, you need to dedicate yourself to building it. In the beginning you will have to work hard at it, and you won't be getting a paycheck at the end of every week like you would with some 9-5 job.

When you are building your list and gaining followers you will make little to no money at all. But this is just temporary, if you really apply yourself and learn everything that you can about becoming a pro-blogger, the money will come. You just have to be patient.

Then after you have established yourself and your blog, you won't have to try as hard to make money, you just have to be smart about how you do it.

Remember, if your blog doesn't take off right away, and it probably won't, don't give up. You have to keep at it.

Make sure that your using good SEO, (Search Engine Optimization) and listen to the pro-bloggers out there. Don't be afraid to take advice. I have been at this a little while now and I continue to learn something new almost daily.

Thanks for reading and remember what we have discussed this month in the "Build A Blog Workshop". Keep coming back to get daily tips from us here at the Bloogle AdSense Blog. Good luck!
