How to start making money online?

  • seo mapIf people go visit a new country or a new city, they take a map: a plan of the city.

  • If people want to build a house, they start with a plan: follow instructions build what you intend to build.

  • If people want to make money online... they often start without any plan... ???

What is your online business plan?

"I want to be rich and I want it fast"

... Yeah right!

Before you go any further: define "rich" and "fast"

  • After the tsunami in Sri Lanka: it takes only 250$ to built up a new house from scratch! So 1000 dollar means pretty rich in Sri Lanka. But what does it mean for you?

  • After going to school until you are 21 and worked 20 years to get some savings, you can buy your own house depth free. Is 20 years fast for you? Or do you want to earn your house in 1 year/ Is that realistic?

So if you want to make money online: start with an idea of:

  • what you want to earn and

  • how much time you want to make to reach your goal

Having a dream is fine, setting goals must be realistic. There is money to make online, yet it is no goldmine that happens to be in your garden. A very realistic time and money frame for starting to make money online is:

  • make it your part-time job (job! yes, work is needed!)

  • expect 100 dollar after 6 months if you are starting from scratch.

How much dollars is my website's value?

online blog value

Internet Marketing

Internet marketing is getting your website "out there" in any way possible. The most known way is SEO your page to the top of the search engine, but that's only 1 way (and therefore not the most easy way).

FREE: give something away

People still believe that there are free things out there... Yet nothing is free: all is done for a reason, and "free" has mostly a marketing reason. Free T-shirts have normally a logo of somebody on it, will be worn and seen by many, so it's kind of free advertising.

What to give away?

Whatever you have and doesn't cost you to much, preferably what costs you nothing. Here you need to be creative. See the Blog Value in my site bar:

online blog value

It says that my website has a value of 22 dollar... It looks cute, it doesn't mean anything since nobody is buying my site... BUT:

it has a link back to whoever made this Blog Value thingy!

And here goes their Internet Marketing: I found the thingy useful and put it on my site, they had to create the thingy with some creative brainpower and very little overhead cost and tadaa: they have a link to their site!

Most common thing to give away these days are free e-books with lots of info and especially lots of links to your website.

  • The content in the ebook and

  • the links  in the ebook

are 2 Internet Marketing tools towards:

  • you and

  • your website.

How to SEO

We all know that SEO is about getting your page ranked high in the search engines. With Internet marketing, it is 1 way of getting more visitors to your website.

SEO: back to basics

Search Engines rank your page after reading your page. Your page is not read by humans, but by a computer program often called spiders. So search engine optimization is all about how the spiders read or don't read your pages...

Search Engines don't read my pages?

Yes, get alarmed: spiders are running around the whole Internet in order to rank pages... Compare how you read a newspaper: do you read from beginning to end? Of course not, you only have 1 day, so you browse over the newspaper. Same with spiders: the daily spiders browse around and take a quick glimpse at your website.

The "good news" is that there are slow spiders that do try to read "the whole Internet", but you can imagine, this takes a lot of time (we are now talking at least 1 month)

SEO: the spiders read HTML code

Now you have a nice blog like this one (self praise, big disgrace...), but spiders read the HTML code (see for yourself in the View - Page Source Code navigation button of your browser), and it looks like this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">

All this mumbo jumbo has to be read before the spider gets to your title...
(Read more about "title" in the previous post))

<style type="text/css">
Blogger Template Style
Name: Son of Moto (Mean Green Blogging Machine variation)
Designer: Jeffrey Zeldman
Date: 23 Feb 2004
----------------------------------------------- */
/* Primary layout */
body {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;

All this mumbo jumbo has to be read also before the spider finally reads the text that you are reading now...

Optimize for SEO: the spiders

Also called: "on page SEO optimization" because you can do it on your own site.

If you want the spiders to read your page, you have to get rid of all the mumbo jumbo. This needs a little bit of simple HTML knowledge, which you can browse for in your search engine.

Main things to know is:

  • get rid of all the "Style" mumbo Jumbo by copy-paste it in a separate style document

  • make sure that the most important information of your page is on top of the page (most logically your title...) So if the spider reads a bit of your page, at least he has read the main part!

Why is quick and easy ways to make money not "mumbo jumbo" page optimized?

Because I have the patience to wait 1 month to let the big spiders read my whole page and SEO for those. If every penny counts, then save 1 month of time with on page SEO optimization.
