Thanks to the home computer and Internet, you now have access to unlimited information and opportunities... and unlimited ways to earn extra money. It is a common fact that most of the successful companies today on the internet started from nowhere, and all they had were access to a computer, a connection to the Internet, some free time and a determination to succeed so as to obtain their financial freedom.
At the beginning, Internet home business can seem really overwhelming. However, it’s full of get-rich quick schemes and you have to be extra careful to not fall into any of them.
Lastly, the most important factor in starting a home business is YOU! In order to be successful, your home business has to fit your talents and interests
For Freshers and Newbies
Corey Rudl was really the first one to put together a Internet Network Marketing Tips Course Many others have tried to follow in his foot steps with their own courses, but few have managed to live up to the high bar that Corey set in the beginning. There is also his Profit Maker Videos Course, which is also rather useful. In fact there is a whole MENU devoted to freshers and newbies
The SFI Marketing Group has become one of the world's largest Internet affiliate program. SFI can help you how to build a profitable Internet home business through Free SFI Membership. It's a powerful, proven system, and can create an income stream that can gradually replace your current job or career.
There are some also good free downloads, such as Ken Evoy's, Affiliate Masters Course, and Free Search Engine Yearbook; which are very useful for those new to the affiliate arena. They can give you an insight into what you are in store for.
Complete Web site Package
It is obvious that anyone starting out would require a professional-looking Website. This can be done by either hiring a designer to do a custom site for you, OR designing it yourself. Unless you’re both trained extensively in HTML and have a background in design, it’s well worth the money to hire someone. If their rates are higher than you can afford, try and obtain pre-designed Web site templates.
Custom Made Sites/ Website Bundles.
Alternately, if your budget is next to nil and you'd like to choose from a variety of templates that you can customize, check out Ken Evoy's Site-Build-It The package is affordable and also includes hosting, a list service, and more.
You can also check out Website Wizard which has 10+ different website building services in 1 package. Additionally, you can also look up Warrior Pro, which has Domain Names, sales letters, tracking, the works.
Of course, you can always join an Affiliate Program for free and receive your own free duplicate website, BUT you will need to invest time, energy, and even yes, some money into promoting your Internet home business!
Get your own business DOMAIN NAME. It’s just a fact that folks will feel safer shopping at a site with its own domain name. You can get one at BizMint, where you can get secret Domain Names for Pennies.. You can also get one at Host For Profit, which has a Business Level Hosting Account
Get a high-quality LOGO. Again, if you don’t have much of a budget, get one from Cosmic Templates, where you can obtain a drag and drop logo for a low cost.
Once you have your site you need the right keywords to market the site, which you can obtain from Word Tracker
Auto responders, Email marketing and Newsletters
Now that most of your site is ready, you need to set up an email marketing programme, which can be done with either Mail Loop OR Nitro list Builder, which comes rather cheap. QuickPayPro which has sales, news, e-mail marketing letters and autoresponders. In fact it is a complete eBusiness automation system
Now that you have your site, keywords, autoresponders etc., you need to set up an Affiliate Program. EasyAutoPro is a good affiliate software, OR you can also go in for AssocTrac , which is equally good, if not better
What you need to do next is set up an affiliate tracking software that tracks and identifies which of your ads/ links are making money. HyperTracker does just that for you
Now you need a Search Engine to position your site. There are many good ones and it wouldn't be justice to single out just one. Anyway give these guys a short 1stSearchRanking.com - Search Engine Positioning
Internet Based Residual Programmes
I've also listed a few of the successful Internet Based Residual Programmes. However, much of your success depends on your familiarity with residual programmes. You can either join those listed, or, you can identify and join programmes, which is in line with the service/ product you offer. Make sure you enjoy promoting them, and that they offer high commissions.
Affiliate Network Services
Most affiliate merchants today make use of Affiliate Network Services. They are the safest when it comes to making payments on time, conflict resolution and accurate tracking. Affiliate Networks are also great sources to find good affiliate programs and can help you get payments from different merchants through a single cheque. So make sure to register at some good networks. Some reputed affiliate network services are
Link Share and Shareasale
You need to have a link to these essential resources in any home business.
Paypal An online payment service - fast and no start-up costs
The Dropshipper’s Directory They take care of the entire supply process
Nitro Tax Helper A simple software helps you eliminate your tax nightmare
Work at Home Job.
Unlike a home business, a Work at Home Job offers you the opportunity to receive a regular salary and to do one specific task, and an employer pays you. A work at home job offers more security and less risk than a home business. Also, Freelancing allows you to freedom to work in spurts (i.e., on short term projects) and then take a breather. Listed below are a list of good contact sources where you can obtain part-time freelancing work, be it writing, freelance design or even surveys. There are hundreds of them.
Lastly, it is very difficult (an understatement) to put a comprehensive breakdown of resources into a single page, as there are numerous sources where you can obtain wonderful if not better information. As I said earlier the info provided should more than suffice for anybody wanting to enter into the home Business, as long as they follow it conscientiously
Besides, each link opens a door into another set of resources and so on and it is never ending. The best thing is that you learn something new each day. Enjoy it and
wishing you the best in your home based business.

Just in the United States alone, companies spend over "who-knows-how-much" amount dollars a year on consumer research and surveys. Market research companies are hired to test their advertisements or do research so that they know the best way to advertise to certain markets. These market research firms have large panels of people they use to conduct their studies. They do their research through having people test the products, mystery shoppers, and paid surveys.
Market research companies, doing the surveys are willing to pay you to visit their place of business, and act like a normal patron. These companies will pay you just to spend a couple of hours browsing, because they need an honest opinion from an everyday consumer on how well their facilities are doing. These market research companies are willing to pay people good money (up to $50 an hour) to everyday people for their honest opinion, and a lot of people are not aware of this.
Although most of these paid surveys only pay a small amount of money, usually between $1 and $15, some rare ones may pay up to $50, but just rare.It usually takes about fifteen minutes to complete. Some people have made a significant amount of money simply taking paid surveys. The rewards are usually in forms of points, later you can redeem points with cash(check), gift cards, common daily products. Many website also reward sweepstake entries to $10-$5000 drawings.However the latter is not a reliable way of steady earning. The hardest part is finding and sorting through all the research websites out there
Paid surveys are usually taken online, and less commonly through postal methods. Several companies also send assignments right to your email inbox. You can read and decide whether you would like to accept it or not. In many product test surveys, they also provide free products for you through mailing, one should test for a while then complete a paper or online survey to receive credits. Many websites exist where one can input certain characteristics about themselves, which is kept confidential and be emailed relevant surveys according to ages, genders, geological residents, jobs, gross household incomes etc., and be paid for these surveys
If you are in need of some part time work, answering paid online surveys may well be the answer! With flexible short hours and very good pay, it offers a fun and an interesting working environment. A lot of people actually make a nice living from home, working mostly online, and generally, most of them take the easy way out. They focus only on get paid to take online surveys and most of them make anywhere around $5 to $150 per survey. Besides, the get paid to take phone surveys also earns them as much as $120 an hour.
If you are having intentions of being able to retire by taking online surveys - forget it...as it will never happen.
Although there are a lot of sites out there advertising that you can make thousands of dollars per week or make $50 plus dollars and hour for taking online surveys, any desire of earning huge amounts of money for minimal amount of work is likely to end in disappointment. In most cases, it doesn't really matter where you live, or who you are and if you are interested you can do it too. But the chances of making a killing every month is a little far fetched and it is highly doubtful, you can make that amount.
Mentioned below are a few of the reputed companies that are involved in paid online surveys. This does not mean these are the best or are guarnteed sources. It is only to help you to save time searching online for survey companies and not to fall into scams
Survey Scout .. This is more of a Get Paid to take Surveys site - But it includes the 'Get Paid to Shop' database as a free extra. It has a large database of 'paid to shop, paid surveys' and an instant survey paying $25 when you sign up details - You also get access to 25 FREE survey reports. They also have one of the most profitable "paid surveys" affiliate program on the web. So, in addition to the extra $400 plus a month for filling their online surveys, they also pay a 75% ($23.50) affiliate commission on every sale, and their conversion ratio is off the charts. Many of their affiliates average insane conversion ratios of 15-30% or higher! That's 1 sale for every 4-8 visitors ... or earnings of over $3 per click. You can't make money with these kind of numbers, even paying high CPCs at Overture, Google, etc.
PaidForFree.com has been advertised and recognised as one of the low risk online survey companies Mainly because there are cases where people have invested hundreds in survey companies and not got a single cent back. The companies listed with them are low-risk and most of their 11,000 odd members do make money with them. Ideal for a stay-at-home mom or a college student searching for some additional money.
goZing Cash Surveys - It is another free online survey site which offers cash rewards to participant members. Once an individual signs up with goZing they are then invited, via email, to periodically participate in new live surveys ranging in topic from critiquing new products to watching never-before-seen movie trailers. For every survey completed members are rewarded CASH or sweepstake opportunities. Take a survey, get paid. It's that easy!
Get Cash For Surveys - Most of today's "survey" sites online will show you only 5 or 10 "select" companies that pay you for surveys. Its quite obvious that they are promoting these companies However, Get Cash For Surveys provides the freshest, most unbiased, and most complete list of online survey opportunities available. You could search on the Internet for months, finding only the same "offers" over and over again
That's all I have for the moment. If you need more info, you can always do an online search and find out more
All said and done, give it a try - its fun.
Here's wishing you the best and hope that you make money online with your paid surveys.

However, it is Google Adsense dominate the Internet Marketing Advertising industry by displaying contextual ads to targeted audience on websites large and small.
One of the biggest trends over the last few years has been the explosion of websites built to take advantage of the Google AdSense system. And when someone clicks on the AdSense ads that you display, a few cents tumble into your account. If you have sites earning money with AdSense you'll know why this is a good idea.
Then there’s ClickBank. The hottest and most well known affiliate programs network. ClickBank is one of the major players in affiliate marketing online and show every sign of growing in popularity, strength and power in the market.
And trying to "make money by promoting affiliate programs" is a different ball game.
Clickbank has been around for years and has earned an excellent reputation online. They work as a payment processor and an affiliate program all rolled into one.
Now the most obvious fact with Google AdSense is that you have no idea how much you will get paid for each ad clicked. And while you can get occasional clicks worth a dollar or more, most bring you only a few cents. A more detail version of this is given here - How To Make Money With Adsense
Now if you find that the promise of making hundreds of dollars a day from displaying pay-per-click ads on your website is falling short of expectations, why not try an alternate method, which could double, triple, or even quadruple your website revenue ?
So, why settle for this handful of cents for each click that turned into a referral for someone else, when those same clicks can be potential sales for a product that would pay YOU 50, 60 or even 75% in commission?
To explain this in detail - if one of your visitors clicks on an ad on your site and ends up buying a $47 eBook, imagine how much better it will feel to get a commission of up to $30 rather than the few cents that you'd normally get for your efforts
Besides, Clickbank marketplace includes over 10,000 eBooks and other downloadable products on all kinds of subjects, that anyone with a free Click Bank® account can sell or promote to make substantial commissions of up to 75%
Clickbank also has a built in affiliate program and they provide you with sales and commissions reports and will send you pay cheques twice per month But unfortunately, what Clickbank does not have, is a "user interface" department.
This is where CBprosense's comes in.
CBprosense is one of the most powerful ways to monetize your website.
How would you like to have a smart engine that works similar to Google AdSense but display products from Clickbank with your affiliate ID already embedded in the ads? What if you can easily turn your website into a monster Clickbank affiliate money
Besides, affiliate marketing is booming and CBprosense puts your website right in front of the hungry crowd.
CBprosense as mentioned earlier is similar in the way it works compared to other contextual ad delivery systems ( like the ones used by the major search engines ), but with one major difference; The CBprosense system delivers highly targeted ClickBank products that closely relate to the content of your page.
It is a system that works similar to Google AdSense but displays products from Clickbank with your affiliate ID already embedded in the ads ?
It is specifically designed to help you bring your site's revenue potential to it's max, a set and forget service designed to bring the best of ClickBank's high commission paying, downloadable products (and services) right into your content.
In short you can promote a variety of products with which you can "make money by promoting affiliate programs" and turn your website into a monster Clickbank affiliate money making machine
So, why try and make your fortune only from the PPC ( pay per click ) revolution where you normally tend to make much more than a few cents a day or perhaps a couple of dollars at best.
Is it not wise option to atleast try out CBprosense content-relevant product matching system.
Ads that your visitors will want to click on. And each time they do, you will have the chance to earn substantial affiliate commissions - not a few cents, but real dollars.
CBprosense allows you to harness the power of Clickbank automatically, without compromising the integrity of your website in any way. That is to say, this unique, highly customisable content monetizing system will rotate on your site links to content-relevant, high commission paying, best performing Clickbank products and services.
In short, you can earn up to 75% in commission for each product sold ! That is to say with most products paying anywhere from 40% to 75% in commissions, you can earn up to a maximum of $100 per sale !
CBprosense display units are fully customisable and are designed to suite almost any page design. The system lets you specify your ad sizes, background and text colors, font face, product minimum commission rate, number of products per unit and various other product filters. You use their Ad builder or generic ad code and simply copy and paste a few lines of HTML to your pages. CBprosense does all the rest, the system. All links are automatically hard coded with your own Clickbank Affiliate ID and will open in a new window when clicked.
Besides, if you've got a webmaster related site, you could also make $42 or $32 per sale respectively on your sales of CBprosense paid subscriptions when you send customers through your site or a mail link.
There is also another issue here. If suppose your Adsense account was banned, then this serves as a good backup. So put CBprosense as an alternative in your file for Adsense.
As they say you really find out, only when the need arises.
Now get ready to make money with the CBprosense Search Engine Marketplace
Bottom line - although Google is a top player in the PPC advertising field, CBprosense does in some ways comes as a much more lucrative alternative to Google Adsense
So if you are keen on trying to “make money by promoting affiliate programs" and "
making money with clickbank", you ought to give the CBprosense Search Engine Marketplace a shot !

As a closing note; make a commitment to blog everyday. Few minutes a day can help increase your traffic as new content attracts search engine spiders.
Put it on your schedule as a daily task.
Set up a Bloglet subscriptions form on your blog and invite everyone in your network to subscribe: family, friends, colleagues, clients, and associates - http://www.bloglet.com
1. Set up a feed on MyYahoo.com so your site gets regularly spidered by the Yahoo search engine (see tutorial on http://www.biztipsblog.com) http://www.my.yahoo.com
2. Be part of the blogging community. Go to other blog sites you admire. Contribute to their blogs and add real value. Read and comment on other blogs that are in your target niche. Don’t write things like “nice blog” or “great post.” Write intelligent, useful comments with a link to your blog. Give away what you know.
3. Blog at least 10 posts a week for the first 15 days and 5 post per week the next 15 days
4. Write anything you want as long as it is unique content. And also add in some mews clips [with courtesy to the origninal clip-link] and some articles by leading article writers [again do mention it is not your article and that it was borrowed from a source – and with a link to that source]
5. From the second month, make it a point to have at least 15 post per month and the third at least 10 post per month. As your post volume reduces, so does your links to other articles and news clips. Of course, you can always have the odd links now and then.
6. Once your reputation grows, people will seek out your blog. This is not an overnight process, but by building an audience you are positioning yourself well
7. Swap links - Make a list of relevant sites you would love to link to your blog. Write them a short friendly note and offer to let them use a few of your posts as content on their site in exchange for a link back to your site. Also, link to their sites from within one of your posts. Be sure to offer to exchange links in the links section of your blog. If you are willing to pay for a link to your site, check out Text-Link-Ads
8. Use Ping-0-matic to ping blog directories. Do this every time you publish. http://www.pingomatic.com
9. Submit your blog to traditional search engines: http://www.submitfire.com
10. Submit your blog to blog directories. The most comprehensive list of directories is on this site: http://www.masternewmedia.org/rss/top55/
11. T imp: Create a form to track your submissions; this can take several hours when you first start so schedule an hour a day for submitting or hire a VA to do it for you.
12. Add a link to your blog in your email signature file.
13. Put a link to your blog on every page of your website.
14. If you publish a newsletter, make sure you have a link to your blog in every issue.
15. Include a link to your blog as a standard part of all outgoing correspondence such as auto responder sequences, sales letters, reports, white papers, etc.
16. Print your blog URL on your business cards, brochures and flyers.
17. Make sure you have an RSS feed URL that people can subscribe to.
18. The acronym RSS means Rich Site Summary, or some may consider its meaning as Really Simple Syndication. It is a document type that l lists updates of websites or blogs available for syndication. These RSS documents (also known as ‘feeds’) may be read using aggregators (news readers). RSS feeds may show headlines only or both headlines and summaries. To learn how news aggregators/RSS readers work, see this site: http://www.rss-specifications.com/rss-readers.htm
19. Post often to keep attracting your subscribers to come back and refer you to others in their networks; include links to other blogs, articles and websites in your posts
20. Use Track back links when you quote or refer to other blog posts. What is TrackBack ? Essentially what this does is send a message from one server to another server letting it know you have posted a reference to their post. The beauty is that an link to your blog is now included on their site.
21. Write articles to post around the web in article directories. Include a link to your blog in the author info box (See example in our signature below).
Make a commitment to blog everyday. 10 minutes a day can help increase your traffic as new content attracts search engine spiders.
Put it on your calendar as a task every day at the same time.

If you think commercializing your blog is evil, immoral, unethical, uncool, lame, greedy, obnoxious, or anything along those lines, then don’t commercialize it.
If you have mixed feelings about monetizing your blog, then sort out those feelings first.
If you think monetizing your site is wonderful, fine. If you think it’s evil, fine. But make up your mind before you seriously consider starting down this path.
If you want to succeed in blogging, you must be congruent.
Generating income from your blog is challenging enough — you don’t want to be dealing with self-sabotage at the same time. It should feel genuinely good to earn income from your blog — you should be driven by a healthy ambition to succeed.
If your blog provides genuine value, you fully deserve to earn income from it.
If you do decide to generate income from your blog, then don’t be shy about it. If you’re going to put up ads, then really put up ads. Don’t just stick a puny little ad square in a remote corner somewhere. If you’re going to request donations, then really request donations.
Don’t put up a barely visible “Donate” link and pray for the best. If you’re going to sell products, then really sell them. Create or acquire the best quality products you can, and give your visitors compelling reasons to buy. If you’re going to do this, then fully commit to it. Don’t take a half-assed approach.
Either be full-assed or no-assed.
Now it is practically up to people on what they choose...
Viva - la - blog !!
Some easy references.........
The bloggers checklist

Subsequently, they crawl and index your site, publishing your blog contents and thus increasing your blog’s popularity.
Althought Pingomatic and other ping services may be rather popular with bloggers, there are times you may have asked yourself this question – whether there are really any alternatives to these services ?

A further comprehensive list of blog [XML-RPC] pinging services are given below;
There are more pings out there, and some may be even better than the above mentioned.
So, if you know of any ping services which you feel should be added to this list, please do post it so that I can add it to the above list

In the past, just about anyone who was somebody had a
blog. Now, it's the other way around.. If you want to be somebody, you must have a blog.
While this has caused a dearth of creativity in the blog sector (as the pundits say, although I doubt it myself), there is such an amount of free good, bad and original info out there.
Teenagers have blogs, celebrities have blogs, corporations have blogs, news agencies have blogs, and CEO's have blogs. In short, just about anybody who has something and wants to voice his or her opinion, has a blog.
Now they are having blog conventions. Who did ever think that voicing your opinion did have so much intensity? Well, the show must go on…
Although, the wonderful thing about blogs is, that there are virtually no restraints on what it could be used for, although, one has to be a bit reticent as to what they write in it, as it is fast being accepted as public opinion.
Another reason why blogging has become increasingly popular is because of its flexibility and easy content management. If you are familiar with running a traditional website, you would be aware of why fresh content is a necessity for your site's success. Blogging solves this issue, because it can be updated on a regular basis.
In short, Blogs are the simplest form of creating an online presence.
You can create a blog for free. You do not need any experience in website design as most blog hosts will provide you with pre-made templates. They also provide easy to understand instructions for creating your posts along with options such as allowing comments from readers etc. There are many free blog-hosting sites you can locate by searching for 'blog' in the search engine. Blogger.com is a popular one.
WordPress is also popular with many bloggers because it's - free, has solid support, can be customized and has many plugin facilities. Oh I almost forgot, it is also free. And, although, Blogger comes free, for those who are a bit technologically oriented and for geeks, Wordpress provides that edge of flexibility.
Now, let's cut the crap and finish a few basics first…
What is blogging ?
Blogging is a method of sharing information over the Internet for work, pleasure or both. Although the pleasure aspect does play an important part (sic !) In other words, 'blogging' is the action of posting a message on a blog. A 'blogger' is the person posting the message.
What are blogs?
'Blogs' or 'Web logs' are generally described as an online diary, with dated posts displayed chronologically.
Blogs are usually based on a particular topic or an individual's personal thoughts and opinions. They often contain links to other related sites and are commonly free to operate. They require little knowledge to set up and are simple to update.
Blogs can be about anything.
They are usually based on a particular topic or an individual's personal thoughts and opinions. Whether you want to post your personal thoughts on a world crisis, share your recipes or even start an online marketing business, your blog could be used to let people what you have to say.
Now, next step would be to choose a title, name and a subtitle for your blog. I am not talking about a domain, but the blog's name and description. Write the description like a headline and keep the title as short as possible. However, the subtitle can be longer. Now try and include your primary keyword in the title and a secondary keyword in the subtitle.
Blogs can also be branded just like any other product or service. A number of factors play a part in establishing your blog brand, i.e., site color and design, name and description, a particular product, service, or business etc. If you need to know more, checkout Wikipedia
Blogs often contain links to other related sites and are commonly free to operate. They require little knowledge to set up and are simple to update.
If you are newbie to the blogging world, you may wish to know the types blogs that are in existence. Note that this information is stolen, as it is too difficult to explain the blog lingo to newbies each time one has to write something about blogs.
Then there are the blog tools, blog promotion, get paid to blog information, new blog technologies, free blogs, blog templates, blog hosting, blog directories and blog pinging services and the rest. Be sure to get this info ahead of your blogging aspirations.
Many bloggers simply create their own blog using any of the standard blogging software but many sites have popped up offering specialized services for users to create their own travel blogs and share their photos.
Blogs that are mainly speaking about business, talk about stock market behavior, political announcements that have either positive or negative impact on the overall business community.
A clubbox is a type of blog prevalent in East Asia where the owner, upon paying a monthly fee, can post daily personal entries, pictures, and videos and usually has a large amount of bandwidth to share. Personally, I don't what this is.
Cultural blogs discuss music, sports, theater, other arts, and popular culture. Very popular with the online social networkers and ofcourse with the so-called intellectuals.
A Moblog, or mobile blog, consists of content posted to the Internet from a mobile phone (i.e., cellular telephone) or a personal digital assistant (PDA). Moblogs may require special software. [These are for the desperate bloggers !]
People blog poems, prose, complaints, daily experiences, and more, often allowing others to contribute. Popular online destinations for personal blogs include social networking sites such as MySpace and Xanga. A community or a cult, which has such tremendous exchange of views between each other.. You got to be a member to understand this.
Photoblogs consist of a gallery of images published regularly. Text following the image can be just as important, or not important at all, depending on the user. Adding a relevant picture to your posts can really add to the overall look of your blog and will reinforce the message of your post. You can use photos on your blog to emphasize a point, add some color, or just to amuse and entertain your readers. Chances are that readers will stay longer and come back to your blog more often.
A Vlog, or video blog, consists of blog posts with mainly video content
Personally, I don't know what this is, but it was listed in my research source.. hence this info. A warblog appears to be a web log devoted mostly or wholly to covering news events concerning an ongoing war. Sometimes the use of the term "warblog" implies that the blog concerned has a pro-war slant., but then again for bloggers, you don't need a war to write a blog, they manage to find a new issue everyday, and thrash it around until it gets murky and everyone leaves partly satisfied that they have contributed their two pennies worth.
Topical blogs focus on a niche. For example, the Google Blog covers nothing but news about Google. A blog may fit more than one topical category or may be both topical and general. Blog directories must manage the needs of bloggers, who want to increase readership, and readers, who want relevant search results. Local blogs are a type of topical blog. Neighborhood reporting is ideal for blogging: Locals are the best witnesses of local events.
Travel blogs or journals are one of the web's most popular types of blogs, as people love to share their vacation stories and photos with friends, family and the web community as a whole. They are also a great way for traveler's to stay in touch with people back home, especially when traveling for extended periods.
Then there are the blog tools, blog promotion, get paid to blog information, new blog technologies, free blogs, blog templates, blog hosting, blog directories and blog pinging services and the rest. Be sure to get this info ahead of your blogging aspirations.
Many bloggers simply create their own blog using any of the standard blogging software but many sites have popped up offering specialized services for users to create their own travel blogs and share their photos.
Right now, there is a great deal of hype and talk about blogs, but when one strips them down and looks at them clearly, they discover that a blog is nothing more than a web site. In essence, a blog is a website featuring an easy to use content management system that allows for quick updating in chronological order.
The roots of blogging trace back to online journaling, but if viewed from a business perspective, their structure, treatment from search engines, and ease of use make them a wonderful moneymaking tool. This is because the sites are, invariably, heavy on content and are naturally organized in an intuitive fashion. Regardless of the platform one uses for blogging, they will be able to produce a content-based site featuring a series of potentially well-targeted pages.
Search engines love content and search engines usually do not like to index affiliate websites because the content is the same as hundreds of other affiliate's websites. But search engines like to index blogs because they provide new relevant content.
Textual content keeps search engine spiders well-fed and persuades them to visit again and again. Google, Yahoo and MSN reward informative sites chock-full of information with better positioning in search results and index these sites quickly.
Because blogs are content-driven, they share a great relationship with search engines. In the end, effective blog use produces high search engine rankings and, thus, great traffic levels. Traffic, of course, is a key to profitability. It is hard for a site to profit if no one sees it! The traffic advantages vis-à-vis search engines is one of the chief selling points of blog use.
If you are familiar with running a traditional website, you have undoubtedly learned two things. First, success will hinge, in large measure, on your ability to provide fresh content to your visitors. Second, adding new content to a static site can be a definite hassle.
In addition, one must write the content, convert it to HTML and then upload the page to the server. This drawn out procedure makes it all too cumbersome to making frequent updates, but, blogging solves this problem. All major blog platforms allow users to create new "posts" or blocks of content via an easy interface and to add them to the blog with a few simple mouse clicks.
Besides, blogs are generally search engine friendly because they are rich in text, links and unique information and the search engines are aware that they are updated on a regular basis, so they get a lot of priority in the search results. However, as an after thought and whether you operate a blog or a site, just remember that the search engine never really needs you, it is always the other way around.
The result is empowering.
Instead of dreading content updates, webmasters can actually look forward to adding new material in moments. Whether a blog user writes their own content or outsources the job to a pro, adding the new text is a simple and convenient proposition. This makes it easy to build the content-rich sites that soar to the top of the search engine rankings. It also creates a heightened level of stickiness for the blog, making return visitors far more likely. That traffic, when coupled with the right moneymaking strategy produces impressive results.
However, many bloggers start too many blogs and other things at one time that they have no way of seeing through as they spread themselves across too many projects too quickly. As a result, they shift from one unfinished project or idea to another, without seeing anything through, and tend to fail to build sustainable blogs because of their lack of focus.
Also blogs fall apart because of the fact that the blogger becomes carried away, and feels he is so self important, that they forget the important fact that the blog's rise entirely depends upon its readership. No sooner, they find it boring, they casually stop visiting it, a fact that they notice only very late, because of being so pre-occupied with themselves.
Now a lot of people have enquired whether they could make money from blogging; and the answer to the question is YES !!
In fact I would go on to say that it is possible for anyone, to make money from a blog. But the reality is that, most people who write blogs exclusively to make money really don't make a lot of money.
Some of the many reasons for this, are outlined below;
Blogging is a disciplined and ongoing process and fresh content is always necessary and no sooner people forego this due to other commitments, they lose out.
Next, although a blog may be a convenient tool to publish product information and reviews of affiliate programs. Don't give too much importance to placing ads and affiliate programs and cluster your blog with them. Remember, content always comes first.
Make it a point to monitor your blog and traffic graph regularly. As there are many opportunities and if you fail to take note of these opportunities, the chances are that you could miss out on something important.
Another factor for your blog to not generate income could be due to the fact that the topic and the subject you write about may not be conducive for generating blog incomes.
Then there is the problem, or in most cases the perceived problem of lack of writing skills. Now this is a subject of discussion, as the whole idea of the blog is to openly express your views, and the fact that visitors who come to your blog is because they like something about you or your style of writing or presentation. I have noted blogs of Iranians, who make up for their lack of writing skills in English through other methods, such as picture clips, video clips, recipes and cartoons. [Not to mention the fact that, the broken language is a treat by itself. Unfortunately, few of them realize this aspect.
So don't let the fact that you are not a writer, hamper your blog habit, because blogs are an area where you basically get to shout out and not worry about dotting your i's or spelling your mistakes. Not that this is not important, because as you mature, you would gradually give more importance to such factors and other formats important to income generation.
Besides, most successful blogs don't hit their strides until they are at least 8 to 12 months old
You can also turn your blog into a cash cow by using Google Adsense. This might be the easiest way to make some money. Adsense allows bloggers to display up to three content-specific "ad units" per page. You simply sign-up to use the [pay per click] PPC service and then, upon approval, you are able to choose the style of online ads to place on your blog. Each time a visitor clicks these ads, you get paid. Earn at least $100 and Google sends you a check.
Top Paying Keywords! $100 per click! You have seen these headlines, right? Now can one person clicking on you Adsense links really earn you a $100? Maybe, maybe not. There is no doubt that the Google Adsense program is one of the most successful affiliate marketing programs ever created, but can clicks on your Adsense links really earn you money? Yes, webmasters are making money with Google Adsense but how much, and how are they doing it is the real question.
In short, the greatest thing with Google Adsense is that you don't have to sell a thing. You get paid by Google every time someone clicks on the adverts that they place on your blog. But only use Google Adsense to supplement your affiliate marketing income and not replace it.
If you want to really monetize with Google Adsense, you have to pick topics whose AdWords advertisers spend mega-bucks per click. For example, if your blog is about topics such as debt consolidation or web hosting you'll earn much more per click than if it's about free things. On the other hand, if you concentrate only on top-paying keywords, you'll face an awful lot of tough competition. Basically, what you should aim for are keywords that are high in demand and low in supply. Mentioned here are some good Google Guides, which you can check out, and find ways and means to improve and increase your Adsense performances.
Now, if you have reservations about Google, there are other contextual ads as well.
CBprosense is similar in the way it works compared to other contextual ad delivery systems and delivers highly targeted ClickBank products that closely relate to the content of your page. The end result: lucrative ClickBank commission payouts for you! With most products paying anywhere from 40% to 75% in commission, you can earn up to a maximum of $100 per sale! In short, you get the ease of PPC publishing with the income of the best affiliate programs. There can always be a small nasty player out there, who can keep clicking on your Adsense online ads, which invariably leads to getting your account being banned by Google Adsense. So, put CBProsense as an alternative in your file for Adsense
Now, there is also the option of joining a network, that can bring in a higher revenue to your blog - Of course, you will be sharing the income with the owners of the blog networks in some way, i.e., like a percentage split. Even then it is quite worth it. In some more established networks the chances are you can get a flat fee per month for posting a certain amount of posts. You may also be able to obtain some incentives based upon factors like a set amount of traffic and revenue to your blog. But if you're not willing to share your blog or be participant to a network of bloggers, this just might not be for you.
Once again there are variations when it comes to who retains ownership of content - but this is a key question that you'll want to explore with a network before signing up with them. In many networks the content that you produce as a blogger is fully owned by the blog network and to put it bluntly, you are just contracted to write for them.
Then there are some problems when you decide to leave the network. When you are on a contract and you decide to leave the network, most likely you would get nothing but the earnings you earned during your stay. There are also networks that allow you to retain ownership of the content, but ask for some sort of exclusive rights to user your content in different forums. The question of being paid for this is something to be decided between you and the network. In short, most bloggers enjoy being a part of something larger than themselves, and it is this relationship that make the network experience worthwhile.
As a closing note; make a commitment to blog everyday. Few minutes a day can help increase your traffic as new content attracts search engine spiders. Put it on your schedule as a daily task.

As you lie back..you feel your muscles tighten.
You put him off for a while searching for an excuse, but he refuses to be swayed as he approaches you.
He asks if you're afraid and you shake your head bravely.
He has had more experience, but it's the first time his finger has found the right place.
He probes deeply and you shiver; your body tenses; but he's gentle like he promised he'd be.
He looks deeply within your eyes and tells you to trust him - he's done this many times before.
His cool smile relaxes you and you open wider to give him more room for an easy entrance.
You begin to plead and beg him to hurry, but he slowly takes his time, wanting to cause you as little pain as possible.
As he presses closer, going deeper, you feel the tissue give way; pain surges throughout your body and you feel the slight trickle of blood as he continues.
He looks at you concerned and asks you if it's too painful.
Your eyes are filled with tears but you shake your head and nod for him to go on.
He begins going in and out with skill but you are now too numb to feel him within you.
After a few moments, you feel something bursting within you and he pulls it out of you, you lay panting, glad to have it over.
He looks at you and smiling warmly, tells you, with a chuckle; that you have been his most stubborn yet most rewarding experience.
You smile and thank your dentist.
After all, it was your first time to have a tooth pulled out
For those of you who had sex and orgasm in their minds - shame on you !!
Don't worry your time will come !
A word of thanks for asking to put in a few words on Dentists and adultery

The global average is only 47 percent
Perhaps this may be due to the influence of electronics in their society... it is also believed that the next generation of japanese vibrators.."comes" with a robot !
The maximum depth at which vaginal stimulation occurs is only 2"
This makes it all the more funny, when women complain about being shagged, sorry that is when they complain that they have a headache when asked for sex !
A female orgasm is a powerfull painkiller [because of the release of endorfines], so headaches are in fact a bad excuse not to have sex... Women must be educated on this aspect !
It is believed that one in three men, cheats on his partner, as opposed to one in four women. However it is sad that only 28% of female cheaters get caught, while you don't want to know the male side... it may make you cry !
By the way... a "cyber-sex-lay-about-and-neer-do-well" is a person who reads sex trivia pages on the Internet...
So thanks for asking to comment on this subject........

Online dating is incredibly popular with millions around the world.
In fact, online dating is now a easier, far less expensive alternative to the singles nightclub. Men and women, now find relationships online from the comfort of their home computer. If you are somewhat new to the online dating scene, there are so many dating guides available. There is also a Guide on Online Dating for some useful dating tips, advice, and other valuable information that will help you succeed in finding that special someone.
Now, there are plenty of such books in the market. A few very good ones are listed on the side, and more such guides that provide useful dating tips are available at the above drop-down menu.
Online dating and adult personals are also one of the most sought after areas to make money online. Just for the records - the personals and dating category held its position as one of the largest paid content category above business and investment content, with $400 million plus in revenues, with an average 20% increase every year. Studies show that dating revenue shot up as much as 75% last year alone, and is targeted to grow well beyond expectations. It's no wonder, that Online Dating services is one of the money making opportunities and most exciting business and personal opportunities flooding the internet today.
However, this is an area, I was always apprehensive about. Mainly, because of a personal experience. I had joined an adult dating site some time back, to give it a free trial and was busy chatting away through my messenger. Little did I realise, that my online friend on the other side remove her clothes as she claimed that it was rather hot out there. Now this is a common situation. Eventually, I did switch the machine off, although reluctantly ! Now this is not an example to not start dating online, nor quickly joining an adult personal site. The word adult is contrived in the english dictionary. I say so because, anyone between 18 to 99 is an adult. but why is that, that word triggers the thought of sex into one's mind ?
You have to come to terms with the fact, the enormous make fast money potential that the adult personals and internet dating market has. As a result online dating affiliate programs are also one of the most sought after ones. There are numerous, dating and personals sites out there and if I guess correctly, most of them are doing quite well. A few of the good ones are mentioned highlighted on the left. However, if you are new to the market, you can always give each one of them a free trial, before signing up as an affiliate. I am not specifically recommending any one, as EACH ONE is good in its own way - so I won't be doing any justice by singling out a particular one. The problem is there are hundreds of dating web sites out there on the Web.
The best solution, you can take advantage of the FREE trial for these different dating sites before joining their affiliate program You can also experience the fun of interacting with an online date. However, PLEASE also note that some of them contain some adult or soft porn material. The personals and dating affiliate program revenue potential has a high rate of return. In short, the opportunities available for anyone with a website are enormous.
In plain language, it is exciting and fun content to capture the attention of visitors. So get ready to find a partner and also make money with Online Dating And Personals

In fact, affiliate-marketing is a great work from home business available to anyone with a computer and a desire to run their own affiliate business. Basically, all you need is a desk, a chair, a computer, an internet and an e-mail connection and possibly a word processor and a html editor
What is Affiliate Marketing and How Does it Work? Most of us know that affiliate programs are making people rich ! If anyone has told you that you can't make money online with affiliate programs, they either don't know much about affiliate marketing, or they don't want to share their know how with you. It's no wonder that only 5% to 10% of affiliates make money.
So what is the solution ? Either decide to go through the grind, which will take quite some time to set up your home business or, hire someone else to do it for you. Now, if you chose the first option, I can't say your choice is bad, as no books nor any marketing courses can come anywhere close to pure practical experience. (James Martell and Rosalind Gardner) are two such examples of self-taught successful affiliate marketers.
But the problem is time. By the time you start to make money online, a couple of months would have gone by. Moreover, you must also not get caught up in the trap of learning and not earning. It is VERY essential that you start to make some money online as early as possible, so as to fund your initial affiliate campaign and other minor expenses. Bottom line is that you can gather as much practical experience as you want, BUT also with a parallel income.
Alternately, you can try to obtain a FREE web page, preferably with a name (or close to a name) you plan to use later as your domain. Naturally, you can get such a page only as a sub-domain i.e., (http://www.abc.com/yourname) of some other main site.
Even then it is better to have such a page, rather than getting on such as (http://www.abc.com/?12345) This makes no sense, unless it is an established money spinning page.
If you can get such a FREE web page, your next step would be to sign up as an affiliate with good programs and start promoting their products in your free web page. In fact, you can use it to start your affiliate career.
While marketing your new FREE web page, you can study Internet and affiliate marketing, affiliate programs, through some good free downloads. You also learn first hand on how to run an affiliate campaign. Your main and only job would be to advertise your FREE web page, by submitting it to search engines, e-mail it to friends, colleagues and others. You also get familiar with search engine marketing, affiliate networks, affiliate directories and traffic exchanges
As there is no telling when you would start to make money the FREE page gives you a sort of backup. However, if you market it well, the chances are within a month or so, you shall see some income trickling in. This also provides you with considerable room for trial and error. Another advantage is that you can set your own time frame. Most guys who have made it have invested heavily in their initial stages, only to realize later, that it was more of a waste.
Nonetheless, it is essential you set a shoestring budget, set a time-frame (say 3 months, if not 6 months maximum). If you don't see any form of income trickling in by then, it is better to let it take a back seat and give more impetus to your primary job. This does not mean to forget it completely, as there are holidays, nights and other free time. Because, the phases vary, the 1st phase (first 6 months) could be slow; the next could be slightly better etc.
Alternately, try your hand at surveys, data entry, transcription, surf traffic exchanges, write freelance articles (to name a few) that can meet your daily expenses. People generally tend to forget the value of time (calculate the average hourly wages you may get if you were employed, and multiply this sum by the time-frame you tend to dedicate to your new business - you will be surprised to note that it could be a tidy sum). Although you can consider this as your investment, it is extremely important that you set a fixed time frame - I am quoting this from personal experience.
It could be a while before it sort of hits you. This is so because, like all other form of businesses, you have to get the 'IDEA' of how it works. It could be just a spark, and it could happen in a single day or even an hour then things will start falling in place.
You'll never make it if you think that if it could for John Doe, it could work for me. No matter, how many books and courses you study. In short, trying to memorize algebra, physics formulas or organic chemistry will not get you anywhere - You achieve success in these areas only if you understand the concept.
Once you slowly get the hang of things, slowly register your own domain, set up a website, do your marketing research, identify niche and affiliate marketing opportunities.
This is relatively an easy way to make this parallel income during the early stages of your affiliate marketing. Here's wishing you success in your home business and that you make money online through affiliate marketing

On the second day she had the movers come and collect her things.
On the third day she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table.
Lit the candles, put on some soft background music and feasted on a lb of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of chardonnay.
When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the curtain rods.
She cleaned up the kitchen and left
When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days.
Then slowly the house began to smell.......
They tried everything, cleaning, mopping, and airing the place out.
Vents were checked for dead rodents and the carpets were steam cleaned.
Air fresheners were hung everywhere.
Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days.
People stopped coming over to visit.
Repair men refused to work in the house...
The maid quit...
Finally they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move..
A month later, even though they cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house.
Word got out, and eventually the local realitors refused to take their calls.
Finally they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.
The ex-wife [the blonde] called her x husband, and asked how things were going.
He told her the saga of the rotting house...
She listened politely, and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back !!!
Knowing his wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10 what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day.....
The blonde agreed, and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paper work.
A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smilimg as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home, including the curtain rods.
Moral of the story...
Be extremly careful with blondes.... !!

Jane, I need to talk to you. I've got a problem. I either need to lay you or Jack off..." Jane responds..... Well..... Jack off ! I've got a headache.

One of the most important aspects is to find an "online learning program" that meets both professional and personal needs. Mainly because, it can be difficult to juggle classes and a career, as well as the costs and time needed.
Did you ever want to get an additional "online degree" and didn't have the time to goto a regular University – just because you couldn't spare the time to go through the entire course. Many a time you may also not want to leave your current day-job just to get that extra university degree.
Now, online learning provides that self-paced learning environment that allows you to complete a graduate online degree while working. Better still, this can be done from the convenience of a computer, no matter where you are or what time of day. This flexibility makes all the difference.
You can complete your studies from virtually anywhere in the world. You study from your own home or office, wherever it is convenient with no on-campus courses (in most cases) to attend. If you don't have the time to continue your education in the normal way, Capella University may be your best bet for online learning programs.
Capella University was established in 1993, and is a fully accredited "online university" that offers "graduate online degree programs" in business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology, and bachelor’s degree programs in business and information technology. You can get your business degree online through Capella in your spare time and on your own schedule.
Capella University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capella Education Company, headquartered in Minneapolis, and offers 76 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 16 certificate specializations
Most students enjoy online education for several reasons. They say that their online education outshines their traditional classroom experiences. That's because in online education is that you are a part of a team and this always helps you to learn from the students.
That's because, apart from the personal attention, it also provides a flexibility and dynamic interaction to online learning. In other words, distance education on the Internet tends to attract people who are already professionals. They bring their experience to the classroom, adding both depth and breadth to discussions.
Another very good aspect of online learning is that it is affordable. It removes financial barriers that keep some people out of college. With low tuition and flexible financial aid (which most colleges provide), you won't be burdened with a mountain of debt when you graduate. You have to pay only for the credit hours you need to complete your degree. The more previous college credit and work experience you have, the lower your cost will be. Besides you also have a variety of payment options.
There is also some conflict as to whether an online learning is as good as a traditional college education. The answer is not very difficult - there are institutions that offer good and bad online college education. This holds true for traditional college degree programs as well. So when comparing, it is obvious that in most cases, a good traditional college degree is compared with a bad online college education. Hence this conflict.
If the online university itself does not recommend any placements then its degree should be one that fetches you a good job. Obviously, the university’s reputation is a significant factor in fetching a respectable job. There are some sites that rank various online universities on the basis of their academic status.
Anyway, check out the Online-Learning options available at Capella University and decide for yourself.
Capella's Online University currently serves 16,000 students from all 50 US states and 63 countries and provides them with the opportunity to enter into graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, psychology, and bachelors degree programs in business and information technology. Capella also offer an extensive range of professional IT certifications such as CCNA, CCNP, PMP, MCSE and CISSP.

To answer these questions you need to decide what topics you are interested in.
What are the things that you enjoy talking about and that you would like to share with others? For instance, if you are a writer, then a blog containing information on writing would be suited for you.
The same is true for any thing that interests you. You can share the hobbies that you enjoy. If certain events that are taking place in the world get you stirred up this could be a good topic for your blog. You do however, have to choose a topic so that anyone interested in visiting your blog will know what to expect.
Otherwise, very few people may want to waste their time going to a blog when they have no idea what it is about.
After determining the things that interest you, your next step would be to choose the topic from these things that is broad enough to allow you to gather information to have something to talk about. You do not want to make two or three entries then run out of things to say. An example of a good topic would be a
Someone with this type of blog could write about tips on marketing tools and strategies. They could also talk about marketing software and a number of other subjects related to network marketing. The key is to have a topic that will allow you plenty of material to talk about, but still small enough that you can stay focused on one subject.
Readers come to expect a certain amount of information when they look at your blog. This is why it is important to stay focused on your original topic most of the time. If you begin talking about to many other subjects to often, some of your readers could lose interest and look elsewhere for information.

If you have a team of content providers, you can create several user accounts using your blogging software. Each member of your team then logs in and writes for your blog, adding their content. You can even assign different levels of permissions for each user in some types of blog software.
Another way to get contributed content is to invite your blog readers to enter comments and feedback. Clicking on a link at the end of a post will bring up a popup window in which a reader can add comments. And the author can respond.
A third way to include content on your blog is by publishing syndicated content from others on your blog using some XML programming.
So, relax - if you are feelin lazy, find someone to do the blogging for you

You could use descriptions of things you've done, thought threads, streams of consciousness, idea feeds. Longer articles or short snippets. If you're using a long story, you could display a short summary on the homepage and link to the full post in an archive.
One of them is worth a thousand words. Good blogging software lets you store and display pictures and also combines them into sequences for display to readers in attractively packaged format.
You could have any type of data including media objects like MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, Macromedia or Apple movies, PDFs, Audio feeds, downloadable applications - whatever.
That depends on many factors that go to why you wish to create a blog in the first place. The good news is that no one's going to punish you if you post material infrequently!
So relax. Enjoy blogging.
