Or, how to stop working for the man.
How To Make Money Writing Online
Not so long ago I told you that, in an effort to be able to continue our self sufficient life I decided to see if I could learn how to make money online. We had no work and things were beginning to get very serious, money wise. We already had this blog but it was set up more as a fun project to do together, rather than as a money making exercise.
Just as well really, as it makes nothing in terms of monetary value really.
Now, before I get in to this, and believe me there is an awful lot to get through, I want to make one thing absolutely clear about learning how to make money from home. Anyone can make money on the Internet, and I mean good money, if they are willing to do the work. And learning how to make money with Amazon and other programs can be learned by anyone. But this is not play time. If you really do want to give up your day job and work for yourself, getting up when you want and picking your own hours, then you can. But you must be dedicated.
If you have a job then you are going to be tired for many months, if you don’t have a job then you will achieve a good monthly wage that much quicker, as long as you put in the hours. This single post will allow you to work from home and make a successful living. Most people will already have clicked away and it is their loss. They want a fast track with no work and they are deluding themselves. More fool them. If you implement what I tell you then you will be one of the few, like us, that didn’t give up and can make a living online from a laptop and, in our case, a few solar panels.
I spent months learning exactly what to do and I am still learning now. We now work together on projects as well as having our own projects and we are now earning an OK wage. In all honesty I did not know what I was doing until April. Earlier projects have mostly been abandoned as they were done in total naivety. I can honestly say that from when I began to learn how to make money online I probably wasted about six or seven months of my time.
I have only really known what I was doing from April, I am writing this in August. In just over four months of hard work we have got to a stage where we make a living. It is not insane amounts of money but it grows all the time and, as sites that you will build get older, they produce a higher income. But I will come to that later.
You Help Me, I Help You Make Money Online Writing
Although I will explain later why, if you find this helpful then please bookmark it on as many sites as possible. If you have a blog and it helps then please write about it and use a keyword anchor text make money online. Of course, many of you will be lost already but don’t worry, if you don’t know what I am talking about all will be revealed.
For now, suffice to say, it will help me make some money and if you like the information it is a small price to pay.
How Much Money Can You Make Writing Online?
I am going to be honest here. If you give up early, if you don’t put in the work, or if you do it wrong, you will make sod all.
If you do it right then in a few weeks to a month you will start to see something amazing happening. You will begin to make a good second income. It won’t be huge but it will make you realise that you can make money on the Internet. In a few months, if you work hard, the money will go up.
In four to six months, depending on your time commitments and dedication, you can quit your job and work from home and make a living on the Internet.
Will you be able to do it? I doubt it. Why?
Most people who begin reading this will not get past the first few words. Even though they came here looking for exactly the information I will give they are looking for a short cut. They want to make money online fast. They want a secret formula to make money on the Internet. They want a passive family income with little work.
The people who make money online for free are the ones who slog away at it day after day. You soon realise it is not glamorous, lots of it is boring, but the earning potential is unlimited.
We are thirty six now and I firmly believe that by the time we are forty we will be earning over $1000 a day. At the moment we are earning about $100 a day. Often less, sometimes more but overall that is about right. It keeps us going but is not a fortune. But, we did it ourselves, and it won’t go away. This is the beauty of it. What you do now will only grow and make more money in the future.
How To Make Money Online
If you have got this far, well done. You must be interested. Don’t forget to bookmark it though. This will be the biggest article you have ever read and you will not possibly be able to take it all in in one go.
There are numerous ways to make money online. It really does depend how much you want to make and how much time you are willing to give to it. We are going to be making our money by writing blogs.
Yep, just like this one except yours will make money. It takes time and you will be writing, a lot. You don’t have to be a great writer though, just competent. If you want to simply make a little extra income, a good part time wage, then this method works but you can also take surveys for a living. I will quickly give you a run down of this before I get on to the real deal.
Earn Money Taking Surveys
If you want to earn money taking surveys there are a lot of scams out there. If you get the genuine surveys you can make a good residual income though. Head on over to Take Surveys And Get Paid and if you sign up for all of them you will make a good amount of money each month. Not the kind of money you can make that I will be talking about but a good bit of extra income. Now, let’s get down to the real business of the day.
Make Money Online Writing
As I just stated we will be writing blogs to make money. There are two main ways to monetise a blog so that you can make money if people come to it. You can sell affiliate products or you can use google adsense.
What is an affiliate?
You see the banners on this site? If people click on them and make a purchase we get a commission. This is at the heart of affiliate marketing. There are any number of affiliate networks that you can apply to join. Once you join them you will then have a number of different products that you can promote. The choice is endless, there is basically anything and everything to choose from.
They supply you with codes or text links to put on a blog and if you make any sales you can get commissions anywhere from 4% to 70% although the higher figure is mostly limited to ebooks.
One of the best affiliate programs for beginners is the amazon affiliate program. They only pay between 4% and about 7% but you can make websites that sell absolutely anything that Amazon sells. Anyone can join and the money can really add up. The one drawback to Amazon is that you only get commissions if someone purchase something the same day that they click on your link. Most affiliate programs will be for thirty days. Called cookies, when someone clicks on a link a small piece of code remembers that person and the fact they came from your link. If they buy within the period that the cookie remains you get a sale.
This is the basis of affiliate marketing.
What we have found is that banners are not very good at getting people to click on them. People are much more inclined to click on text links. It just seems to be the way it works.
So, which affiliate programs should you join?
For all manner of products that you can build blogs around then Amazon is a great place to start. Sign up via this link and, although the cookie duration is extremely short, the fact that consumers place so much trust in them makes it a very good option and sales are often higher than other networks.
If you want to try selling ebooks then clickbank is the number one source. People have written ebooks on every subject under the sun. If you sell one, you normally get a 50% to 70% commission. If you are successful you can make a lot of money. I am not a particular fan of ebooks as most of them are junk. However they are available on subjects ranging from growing tomatoes to weight loss. Much of them are highly dubious and what you promote will be based largely on your ethics or lack of them.
Many people make an absolute fortune with clickbank. We make $50 or so dollars a month but really do nothing to try to make sales, we just have a few links in odd articles here and there.
Sign up via this link and promote any number of ebooks, ethics willing. Please note, I think they may charge you to join now, but there is some serious money to be made if you choose this way to make money online.
We have had our best successes with Amazon and a few other affiliate networks. Join the following and see what they have to offer. Our favorite one is Commision Junction. They accept beginners and have a lot of different programs to use. Then we have Pepperjam Network, Shareasale and a few others. Pepperjam is very good as many of the programs there allow you to easily make your own online store. Sign up for Pepperjam here and shareasale here. They are both really good and will help you if you need it.
That is more than enough to be getting along with.
Make Money For Clicks
Apart from making money by selling products you can make money by people clicking on adverts. The crazy thing about this is that for each click you can make anything from $0.01 to a few dollars for each click. You see the ads in blue at the top of this post? This is the google adsense program. People wishing to sell products pay google for every time they are sent a visitor after clicking on the advert. Please don’t do it though unless you are interested in the advert. The advertiser will be charged.
Most people who come online have absolutely no idea that when they click an advert such as this they are making the site they clicked it from money. This is a great system and if you get the right adverts for the right products you can make an absolute fortune.
We have a few sites where we get roughly 30% of our visitors leaving the site via links that they serve. It adds up, believe me.
To join adsense click this link. You should bear in mind that you will have to have a blog already set up with some content before you can get accepted. If you do not write about the right things though you will make nothing from adsense. This goes for affiliate sales as well. I will now explain how the Internet works in so far as how you get visitors to your blog so you can make money on the Internet.
How Search Engines Work
Google is the biggest search engine. A high majority of the people looking for information online do it via the google search engine. Of course, there are others, but to simplify things I will give the information as it mostly relates to all of them.
In order to get traffic to a blog that you write you must understand how to get high in a search result. If you want to make money from your site you want the number 1 spot in google for your keywords.
What are keywords?
Keywords are the words that you are trying to get visitors for. It is these words, and winning a high spot in google for them that will make you a living online.
How To Write To Win In The Search Engines
There are a number of ways that search engines determine who should be top when someone types in a query. At the most basic level these are:
- The age of the site
- The URL of the site (more later)
- The relevancy of the site
- The use of keywords as the title of the article and in the body of the text
- The number of other sites linking to that site using relevant keywords
Basically, you MUST do this if you want to get high in the search engines, get traffic, and make money writing on the Internet.
After you have picked your keywords, which is very important, and I will talk about later, you need to do the following, always.
Say I believe I can make great money selling purple widgets. I will either buy a domain name that would be www.purplewidgets.com or I would get a free domain name and have purple widgets in the URL somewhere.
This gives you an instant boost.
Probably more, if not at least equally important, is the title of your site. If I wanted to sell purple widgets then my title of my site would be that. When you start a blog it is part of the option when running it to give the site a title. Just as this site is titled A Self Sufficient Life.
Next, and very, very important is the title of each post that you write. You MUST do this to get the best results. On my purple widgets blog, if that is the words I want to win for, when I write a post I would use variations around those words. Cheap purple widgets, great purple widgets etc.
I would also use those words a few times in the post as well.
You will write helpful articles that are useful to the reader and offer your product as the solution.
Writing Blog Posts To Maximise Income
If you want to get the traffic to your site and make money from adverts or clicks then you need to write to maximise your chances. This means that your title MUST contain your keywords.
You will also use your keywords as near to the beginning of your post as possible. A few times in the post, and as near to the end of the post as possible.
You want to choose keywords that you believe will make you money and this really is at the heart of making money writing online. You need to get traffic and I will explain how to get traffic to your blog in a short while but first let’s go back to the beginning and I will show you how to get started and set up a blog.
How To Make A Blog And Earn Money Writing Online
Still with me? Wow. We are getting there. I know it is a lot of information but if you read this a few times it will start to become clear.
Okay, we know how we should write to help us get high in the search engines. Of course, that means nothing if what you write about will not make you any money, just like this site. As Goo said you can’t make money writing about how to get stuff for free.
EDIT: Now obviously that link for Goo is next to useless for her to win for any keywords. The link should of course be sustainable living. Now when you do get links that are not going to help you get higher in the search engines don’t be afraid to ask the webmaster to change it. You may feel a little cheeky, but if you are polite then normally they will be happy to oblige.
Now, how to set up a blog.
There are two options open to you. Free blogs and running a blog that you have to pay to purchase the domain name and then pay to have it hosted. We do both.
We have quite a number of sites, some are free and some aren’t.
What do I recommend. Well, it depends. If you are serious about this and willing to put in lots of hard work then I would ensure that I have my own domain names for some sites.
The reason for this is two-fold. If the site becomes successful you have the option of selling it. Many people make a good living purely by flipping domains. This is the term used for buying a domain name and then selling it on.
Secondly there is no risk of the site disappearing. If you have a free blog and that company decides to no longer supply the service all your hard work will disappear.
The advantages of free domains are that they are very easy to set up. They are perfect for those who have no technical experience and want to make their life as easy as possible. As they are free you can experiment. You can set up as many as you like and see which ones are successful.
Either way, I would have a mixture of both. And yes, you will need more than than one site if you want to make money writing blogs. You will limit yourself if you only try to make money on the Internet with one blog.
For free blogs then you can’t beat www.blogger.com
It is extremely easy to use and totally free.
For hosting that you can control then sign up with bluehost
They allow you to host as many websites as you want for a small fee. It is about $80 a year but this means you can have as many sites as you want with them. You buy a domain name and then they host the site you run. If you are to write a blog then you will then need to install wordpress.org on it.
This is free and it is what all blogs use to run on. You can then choose how the site looks and have total control over it.
By the way, that bluehost link is an affiliate link. Are you getting the picture now? If you buy hosting via that link then I get a commission. Please use it if you like this article. This is the heart of Internet marketing. Give people useful information but in such a way that they will be inclined to use your links to buy things or take an interest in the adsense adverts that are being served, whether they realise they are affiliate links or not. If you use my affiliate link then I will offer extra help if you run in to any problems.
Now there are two main considerations that MUST be always kept in mind if you are to be successful. Apart from committing your time to your endeavors of course.
These are selecting the right keywords and getting backlinks to your blog. If you don’t get backlinks to your site then you will get nowhere. You can write the best content in the world but if you have no links you will never get high in the search engines, which means no traffic and no money, and no early retirement.
What is a backlink?
A backlink is when another blog or site makes a link to your site or your article. This self sufficient link is a backlink. Because I am typing this in wordpress I write the words then click on an icon and type in the website address of the site I want to link to. I am now telling the search engines in no uncertain terms that this site is about self sufficient.
If I get enough of them from other blogs then I will eventually be number one in google if someone types in self sufficient. As of now we are partly down page one for that term and number 2 and 3 for A Self Sufficient Life, much good that it does us! This is without trying. It is in our URL (the website address) and is the title of the blog. When people add us to a blogroll they use those words and give us a boost in the search engines.
Is it starting to make sense now?
When people like what we write or add us to a blogroll they use the link a self sufficient life. Not as perfect as just using self sufficient but at least the main words are contained within it. If we have enough of these links from other people then we will eventually be number one.
If you can get to number one in a search engine for your keywords you will probably get about half of the people that are searching come to your site.
Now, if my terms were something like “I want to buy a purple widget” and your site was called I want to buy a purple widget then you are well on your way to making money. As long as there are programs that offer affiliate programs for that subject.
You must get backlinks to get to the top.
You will never get to the top unless you have more backlinks than the competition. Not just any old links either. They must contain your keywords. If you get backlinks from sites where the keywords used are not the ones you want to win for then they don’t mean much.
Okay, what is the perfect backlink?
Here is the perfect backlink. I would have a link from a site that is all about purple widgets. It will be a very popular site and high in the search engines. It will have a popular article on that site that ranks well. It will link to my site or one of my articles on it with the anchor text purple widgets.
To search engines this means a few things. It tells them that a popular site about my subject thinks that I am relevant. It also tells them that I am relevant to the same thing as them. It tells them that I am relevant to the words purple widgets. What do you think it would mean if they linked to me with the words Mr. Dirty Boots?
It would mean they are telling the search engines that my purple widgets is useful for the words Mr. Dirty Boots.
This is next to useless.
You MUST get backlinks containing your keywords in all their variations. Sure some rubbish links are natural and it should always be kept looking natural. If all your backlinks only contained the words purple widgets don’t you think that would look suspicious? That is simply not natural.
But, in general, the more links you get to your site containing your keywords from relevant sites the higher you will climb in the search engines.
Now, the problem arises in getting these backlinks. How do you get backlinks?
It is difficult. But, if you wish to succeed you must get as many as possible. If it is a new site then you should only be getting a few on a random basis. It would not be natural for a new site to suddenly get lots of links to it. Older sites are different and this is when you will see the serious money coming on. You can get more and more aggressive at building backlinks as your site gets older.
Google will not allow a new site to get lots of traffic regardless of the number of backlinks. It is not natural and will not help. Get a few and as time goes by get more and more until you are at number one and dominating the keywords.
How To Get Backlinks And Make Money Online
Your quest for getting backlinks should take up much more time than actually writing your content. Without backlinks you will get hardly anywhere. You want as many as possible.
I will say that again:
You should spend more time getting backlinks than you should writing content.
You can get backlinks via the following methods:
- Article Marketing
- Guest blogging
- Setting up more blogs and giving backlinks to your other sites
- Using free platforms where you can write articles.
How To Get Backlinks By Writing Articles
Basically there are sites that allow you to post an article you have written with them and at eh bottom of that article you can put a little blurb with usually three backlinks. So I write a short 250 word article and at the bottom I would write:
For lots of cheap purple widgets please visit the discount purple widgets website for information on quality purple widgets and more.
I would then make three of those phrases backlinks. I would always try to vary the anchor text making it look natural. Now this article can be submitted to article directories and I will have free backlinks to my site or articles on it. I will move up the search engine rankings and earn more money.
Submit to the following:
www.ezinearticles.com (the best directory)
There are hundreds of these article sites but unless you buy some software there is no way you can manually submit to them all.
Now, if you really want to get to number one this is often not enough. You need links from as many places as possible.
Guest blogging is a great way to get links. You contact every website you can find that is relevant to your subject. You offer to write an article for them to publish on their blog. Most will refuse, some will be grateful. In your article you put a few links. You then have a great backlink that will give you a boost.
You can also set up a network of other blogs. Write them around your subject and over time you can gradually add backlinks from them to your main site.
There are also other sites that are slightly like article sites but can become money earners in their own right.
Make Money Online Writing For Infobarrel
As we now know, as well as following the rules for maximizing the articles we write and the websites that they are on, backlinks are the key to getting a high position in the SERPS (or the search engine results pages). To this end we need to get backlinks to our sites and to the articles on them.
There are a number of sites where you basically submit an article you write and can add links for your keywords ( the words you want to win for) but they give you a share of the money the article generates. For Infobarrel you must submit a unique article.
So, if we know we can make money via google adsense from our keywords purple widgets we will write an article on Infobarrel with purple widgets somewhere in the title. We will put it at the beginning of the article and as close to the end of the article as possible. We can also add it in the article on occasion although unless it is a long article like this make money online one, we don’t want to overdo it as it seems spammy. (Did you see what I did there?)
Now, we have created some more backlinks for ourselves but if you have an adsense account then you can put in your ID on your infobarrel account and you get a 75% share of any money it makes via people clicking on the links. Most article sites give you nothing so this is a good deal.
This is actually a way to make money in its own right, even if you do not own a website. But why not have a website that you can link to? You may as well make use of the articles that you write, no?
Now, this is not going to make you super rich. We have, between us, over 100 articles on Infobarrel, and make a few dollars each day. But, that is still, at the moment $60 a month for simply making the backlinks that we need anyway. What do you think will happen when, in another few months we double that and so on and so on. In a year or with a thousand articles it can be a passive income that generates easily $600 a month.
Sign up for Infobarrel and start making money and creating backlinks.
BUT YOU HAVE TO DO THE WORK!
You didn’t think it was going to be easy did you?
If you are not willing to be knackered for months getting everything up and running, especially if you have a job, you will not succeed. I hate getting up in the morning but every other day I get up at 6 am and work until 1. The next day we swap.
When we have more money it will be 2 laptops and a more relaxed approach, until then we just get on with it.
Sign up with Infobarrel and make money writing online.
Other Resources That Pay For Writing
You should also sign up for Hubpages and Squidoo. You can make money with them in a similar fashion and you NEED to find as many places as possible to get your backlinks from.
Now, we come to the all important matter of choosing your subject for your blog and researching the keywords that you will try to reach a number 1 position for.
Finding The Right Keywords To Make Money Online
Before I go any further I must thank Grizzly from Make Money Online. He holds the number 1 position in google for that term and he deserves it (well, he did until a few days ago, what happened Grizz?). This man makes at least $30,ooo a month from doing just what I am explaining to you now. His blog is what saved me from getting it all wrong. When I look back now at what I did I cringe.
Once you have grasped these basics they will, honestly, become like second nature. I know it is confusing now but once you have spent a few weeks at it you will fall in to a pattern.
You should set aside a few days and read his entire blog from start to finish as well as all the comment people leave. It will give you a total understanding of just how this game works. He is without doubt one of the most generous people in giving information and asks nothing in return. Back to keywords.
Make Money Online With Paying Keywords
There is no point writing a blog about free garden seeds or being self sufficient for that matter and expect it to bring you early retirement. You need to write about things that people want and are willing to spend money on.
It can be anything, if it interests you as well all the better. If it doesn’t then so what. If you can make money from it then learn about the subject and then tell others what you have learnt.
Start by thinking about what interests you and take it from there.
You will then need to follow these steps. Register with google adwords. This is how people set up the adverts that you see all over the internet. You, however do not want it for that. You will be using their keywords tool.
Once registered go to the keywords tool and select worldwide as the search criteria. Now type in what you think may be a good set of keywords. Bear in mind that you are never going to win for something like Dog. But you may be able to win for what is known as a long tail keyword. This is a series of words that people may type in to google. Such as cheap clothes for Dogs etc.
You get the idea I hope. The results that come up are important for two reasons. It will give you the price that you would have to pay if you wanted to make an advert using those words. It will also show you approx how many people search for that term each month on average as well as lots of other similar related terms.
Keep drilling through the data and trying new combinations until you see a long tail keyword or words that has a high cost to run an advert and a decent number of people searching for it.
What is a good price to go for?
Okay, if you write a site about cheap clothes for Dogs and it says it costs $1 to run an advert using those words then if you make a site about that and use the adsense program on your site you can expect about 10% of that if someone clickes on the adverts that will automatically come up.
This is why, in part you need to put those keywords in the title of the post. The adsense program needs to know what adverts to show. Now $1 is rubbish as you will only get $.10 at best. Look for at least $2 but as high as possible.
Let’s say that ummm Being self sufficient in jam has 3,000 searches a month and will pay me $.50 a click. That is not so bad. But can I win for it?
There is no point trying to get to the top of the search engines if there are millions of other people writing about the same thing with websites called being self sufficient in jam and writing post with the same title.
To check if you can win go to google.com and type in your words in quotes.
“Being self sufficient in jam”
That’s how it will look. The results will then tell you how many people have written that long tail keyword with the words in a row. If it is low you are on to a winner. Below 3,ooo would be ideal but up to 10,000 is OK and if it is really high then you will really have your work cut out for you.
Don’t Be Confused About Making Money For Free On The Internet
I know this is too much to take in and it goes against you wanting to write nice blog post titles and get lots of comments on your blog and be part of a community. This is not how to make money though.
Your friends will not click on your adverts and you will not be high in the search engines if you write post titles that cannot bring up the relevant adsense ads.
You want to write useful content that will attract people and this is search engine traffic not social media sites like Twitter and stumbleupon etc. They do not buy and they do not click.
YOU NEED SEARCH ENGINE TRAFFIC.
And that is by keyword optimised post titles and blog names and keyword specific backlinks from as many different sources as possible.
Now, if you are not going for adsense money via people clicking on the ad links then the cost per click is irrelevant, you just need to know how many people are searching for a term and if there is much competition.
Take A Deep Breath
No, it’s not over.
I am trying to make it so that you can refer back to this article again and again and gradually work your way through it and implement it all.
Don’t worry if you get it wrong to start with, all it costs is time. You WILL learn how to make money writing on the internet and you will get better as time goes on.
If you stick with it, and trust me, nearly all of you will give up in frustration or give up because it is hard work, then you will succeed.
If you work hard for six months to a year then you will be able to give up working for anyone else entirely and set your own hours. The work you have put in will be there for years to come, making more money as the sites you build age and get more backlinks and authority in the eyes of the search engines.
How Many Sites To Make Money Online?
It is impossible to say. You may strike it lucky with a few sites or it may take over ten before one of them is successful. I think that now about half our sites make some money and some just bomb.
This is the nature of it. Keyword tools and estimated ad earning are not accurate.
You may get high in a search engine and the offers that you promote get lots of clicks but no one buys, meaning you won’t make any money. Expect disasters and downright failures. But what about that one site that you work slowly on for six months and then starts getting a thousand people a day and you easily make $100 dollars from it.
As it gets older you need to do less and less work on it and can concentrate on making money writing on the internet with the other sites that you began but didn’t have the time for.
Can you see that the successful people make a fortune doing this?
Well, this is a longer post than even Grizzly writes and that is saying something. Bookmark it, link to it, if you find it helpful, and implement it as soon as possible.
There is one thing for sure and that is if you don’t start you will never succeed. We are still surprised every time we make a sale or make an adsense click for a dollar or so. Slowly but surely as your empire expands all those little trickles will begin to be a massive flood of money.
Making the first small amount of money is the hardest. Once you realise that you can do it then it is just a matter of scaling it up, working hard and enjoying a lifestyle that does not involve working for the man.
Don’t get me wrong, it is hard work. Very hard. It is boring, it makes your fingers hurt, your eyes glaze over and you wonder at times if you are writing about purple widgets or being self sufficient and your brain freezes over.
But, you work for yourself, the earning potential is unlimited,and you are one of the few people who has the drive and ambition to make money online.
By the way, don’t forget to sign up for the ideal bite newsletter via the banner to the top left, I guess you know what that means by now. They have lots of self sufficient tips and, well, now you know the rest:)
If you need further help simply leave a comment and don’t forget that this post deserves a link if any of you actually knuckle down and do the work so that you can be one of the few people who leads an independent lifestyle because you learnt how to make money online.

Most importantly though, DevHub allows you to put your own affiliate links or adsense code on the site so you can make money online with them. If you like you can use their own affiliate links and share the profits with DevHub, but you don”t have too!
I’m sure I’ll be back when I remember what else he’s forgotten about how to Make Money Writing Online.
Okay, I’m back. We forgot about another useful free tool we use, YOLA. Again, it’s a bit like DevHub, you create free websites with a .yola domain name that you can add your own affiliate links too. But there is a much wider range of themes and style sheets to choose from so it is much easier to personalise things.
The basics are free with Yola or you can pay them to have your own domain name and to use their ‘premium’ styles. It might be useful for some as it combines webhosting and design in one package, but for us (as no doubt you would guess) it is great to just take advantage of all the free stuff.
With both Yola and DevHub you seem to be able to create as many sites as you like so they’re great for backlinks and product specific micro-niche targeting.
Hopefully, that really is the last for this post, but I am pleased to announce we’ve now made it to 7077 words in our post all about how to Make Money Writing Online. Blimey!
