First of all, this is not a “how to blog” blog. There are MILLIONS of those out there. Type in “how to blog” and you’ll get 24,600,000 search results in Google. Blogging is a highly competitive market online, and perhaps the most competitive online marketing industry next to SEO (search engine optimization) which I also rank for. <—- see what i did there. Keep reading.
EZMoneyBlog is a blog about how to make a passive income blogging.
That’s a lot of “how to blog” blogs. LOL
Seriously! And that’s with quotes, for an “phrase match” which returns that particular phrase or variations on that phrase as stated below.
Excerpt from Google
|Phrase match||“keyword”||“women’s hats”||Matches of the phrase (or close variations of the phrase) with additional words before or after.|
If you do a broad match search without the quotes (as most people search) you’ll get this:
12,680,000,000 search results!
I don’t know about you, but there’s plenty of free educational information out there better than mine about how to blog so I’m not even going to try to rank for it. (or am I?)
I honestly don’t want to teach people how to blog. You can go look that stuff up on Google.
I want to teach people how to make a living blogging. I actually teach people how to make a passive income blogging and how to rank high in Google search using easy SEO techniques that produce results.
That’s what this site is about.
Passive income blogging
Passive income blogging is simply blogging to make a passive income. There are multiple types of passive income you can make. You can have a membership blog, or sell digital products, or sell digital product subscriptions, or you can sell ebooks.
(notice I used H1 tag for the heading above, an H3 tag for the heading below; more on this later and throughout the blog, so be sure to read all my posts and subscribe to my email list to learn more)
Or you can do what I do.
SEO Blogging. But you really have to know what you’re doing. Search engine optimization is very time consuming and tedious work. It’s not hard…it’s actually fairly easy. People just don’t want to spend the time it takes to do it right.
What is SEO Blogging?
It’s exactly what it sounds like. Blogging for high rank in Google. But not just to gain high rank in Google because you’re not really going to be writing to rank, you’re blogging for people. You’re blogging to help people solve a problem.
The two biggest problems are showing up in Google and making enough money to live on.
EZMoneyBlog helps you solve both of those problems.
Be specific about your problem solving too. Don’t just find a niche, be very specific about the niche you’re in and provide useful content. Like this.
PROTIP: If you want to rank high in Google then create content that doesn’t just solve a problem, but it does it fast. Get to the point. Give them actionable tips quickly (which is why this post is less than 1500 words; I usually write very long posts). Like making sure you link to other pages in your blog so Google knows that you’re not just some random blogger and that you know what you’re talking about.
Stick in these little “PROTIP” sections (like the one above) into your blog posts.
Put words and phrases in quotes and link phrases and keywords to other pages in your blog that you want to rank for. Emphasize an italicize important keywords, and use lots of internal links that link to relevant content within you blog. Put the pro-tips in blockquotes to further emphasize the importance of the block of text with Google.
NOTE: Google is a TEXT based search engine. Don’t forget that. Googlebot loves text. It loves links even better.
You might be saying to yourself. This is basic stuff!
The Basics are Foundational and Vital to Your Success as a Professional Blogger
Listen to me when I tell you. Don’t forget the basics. Don’t get distracted by shiny new things.
This stuff is basic stuff but it’s extremely important. People get caught up in the complicated mess that is the SEO and online marketing industry. There are all kinds of gimmicks and expensive courses and consulting out there all over the place. It’s everywhere. You can’t be in this business without seeing it 100 times a day and you begin to become numb to it after a while, it’s very easy to get burnt out on it.
What people tend to forget about is the basics and they falsely think that the basics don’t matter anymore, or they think that simple easy tricks don’t work anymore.
Everyone is look for the “fresh” and “new” and they’re completely and utterly missing the obvious things staring them right in the face.
Like good solid quality content.
This seems OBVIOUS and I can hear people saying DUH!” “No sh*t, Captain Obvious!”
But that’s the point of the EZMoneyBlog. To simplify the complexity of Google search, help you get ranked in the top of search (preferably page 1) for your niche market and to teach you how to stay there and make a passive income blogging.
You need to hyper focus on your niche. I blog about SEO and passive income because thats what I know. I’m DAMN GOOD at it and I’ve made a lot of money doing it. I know WTF I’m talking about. You can believe me or not, that’s up to you, but my rankings and earnings speak for themselves.
When I say hyper-focus I mean drill down to the nitty gritty.
Get to the meat of your niche.
Most importantly write about what makes you niche tick. What makes your niche work? Just like gasoline makes a car go, text makes Google go, and good quality content rockets you to the top of search rankings. It’s not about the quantity of text (although that helps) it’s about the quality.
Hyper focus. Like this.
PROTIP: To rank higher in Google, don’t just pick a couple keyword phrases and optimize for those. That’s not hyper focusing, those are just keywords, and keywords by themselves are practically worthless. What will rank you faster than anything is combining relevant, useful, actionable, quality content with lots of links and text and make it screaming FAST. Don’t use a bunch of images and fancy themes for your blog. Optimize for mobile! Everyone is on their phone. Likewise, instead of focusing on the keywords themselves, hyper focus on what PEOPLE NEED AND WANT. In the case of passive income and Google search rank, people want their blogs on the first page and they want money. So I write about how to do that with the least amount of effort possible. The easy way. Like, being as detailed as possible with instructions. Write a lot, make it readable, use lots of links, solve a problem. Google will reward you for it.
If you look back over this post, it actually is about how to blog and make a living blogging by generating a passive income blogging. <—-see what I did there?
The paragraph above sums up the whole article.
Not only did I rank for “how to blog” I’m actually writing this because I know this page will rank because I’ve got 20 years of SEO experience getting ranked in Google to know that this page will rank high for that term).
