Well I decided I have been struggling long enough to make money online. I know from what I've seen blogger blogs tend to pop up in google searches quite often. I know that they can also be used as a great resource for getting referrals and promoting programs so I decided it was time to try it. I have been working online now for about 5 years, but I've never been very good at getting referrals to anything other than ptc sites, and even getting referrals for that has been a struggle. I am hoping and praying that with this new blog things will get better. I also added in the adsense because I know I can generate income from there. Now I need to learn some SEO skills and other stuff to help get my blog up there on google. Do you have any good tips for me? What have you found to be the pros and cons of having a blog?

hello olydove yes they do pop up rather often don't they, however many of these sites are no longer maintain as it is a tough job. However many would be put off by your title, " you won't get rich but you can try" it is honest but not what people like to hear. Does it sounds nicer if I put something like "adding cents to your roads to riches" It is more positive statement one and you are not lying, you are only adding cents each time just a though. By the way I have a space I would like to invite you to showcase your blog. would you be interested.

The way I understand it, SEO technique depends on keyword density. That means you want to try and mention your main keyword in every paragraph if possible because the search engine is looking for the most instances of the word and it will list your blog first in a search result if you have enough instances of the keyword..
