Following on from the first post here at Money Hints, which was entitled simply Money Hints, I’ll be using this post to make good use of the first of the extremely useful make money hints online that I want to show you.
Make Money Hints Online
It’s earlier on in the scheme of things than I would have preferred, but in this case is an essential part of the process of getting a new blog, which this one essentially is, indexed by Google very, very fast.
It involves a little known trick that is easy to make use of and quite legitimate. It’s just that not many people at all are aware of this to get their site or blog indexed fast. But first a warning:
DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR BLOG TO GOOGLE TO BE INDEXED
That is the fastest way of getting your site or blog put at the bottom of a very long and slow moving list of sites all waiting to be indexed. Don’t do it, there are many, much faster and more useful ways to do it.
One of the most popular ways of getting a new site or blog indexed within a week or less is to submit an article to ezine articles and let the Google spiders follow the link in your resource box back to your site. As ezine articles is a PR6 site, it gets spidered every day by Google and so any links are also followed back to their originator.
But there is an even better and infinitely faster way to get a new site indexed within a few minutes!
Yes, you heard right, that was no typo. You can get a new site indexed in minutes if you follow these instructions to the letter.
Do a search on Google for a keyword phrase that you know no one will have used before. In the case of this site, I have used my site’s main keywords “money hints” in the search term which for some strange reason exactly matches the title of this post. “Make Money Hints Online” is what I just searched for and found that there are no pages indexed for that search term.
Then I write my post which is this one you are reading right now.
Then I publish it.
Then I ping this page (not the site) to Google using their own pinging service.
Then I ping the usual services like technorati etc using pingoat.com.
Then I check the Google search term “Make Money Hints Online” a few minutes later and…
Hey presto, there is this page as the only result, so that effectively puts me top of page one on Google!
I’ll go and do that now, then edit this page with some more info on why that happens and to tell you how long it took to get “Make Money Hints Online” indexed…
…ok I’m back. I published this at 11:33 and checked Google at 11:41 and I was there! 8 minutes. Mmm a bit slow but I’ll settle for that!
So why did that work?
Well it’s all common sense stuff from Google’s point of view really. You see, they want to provide the best search results online and to do that they have to be able to have relevant pages indexed for every search term that their clients enter. That’s you and me. So when someone enters a search term and they don’t have any pages indexed that are relevant, a flag is set to be on the lookout for a relevant page coming online. As soon as it finds one, it will index it quickly to satisfy the search term and keep up its good service.
So by me doing the search on Make Money Hints Online and there not being any relevant pages for that keyword phrase, Google set its radar on alert for the first relevant page that appeared, which of course was mine. I helped the process go quicker by pinging Google and actually helping them by telling them that the relevant page they wanted was now published – mine!
If you look at the structure of this post, you may notice that I not only link back to the previous post, but also to the site’s homepage in my sign-off at the end. I do that with every post I make and that is so when the Google bot spiders this post to satisfy its search for Make Money Hints Online, it will also find the other links on the page and follow them too, effectively indexing the whole site as it does so.
As this site is a domain I just bought, it would not normally get indexed for quite some time, so I’ve just sped up the process a little (well, a lot) so that I can work on more SEO to start the long and difficult climb up the Make Money Online ladder to rank high in the SERPs.
If you found this post useful, I’d appreciate it if you submitted it to your favourite social bookmarking site to give it a leg-up and point other information hungry people to some good sound and relevant advice on how to make money online with my Make Money Hints Online post and this Money Hints site!
December 22nd, 2007 — Money Hints
Welcome to Money Hints, my blog that is all about tips, tricks, techniques and money hints on how to make money online.
While there are a ton of other blogs out there all trying to tell you how to make money online, very few of them are even close to the mark. That’s because they’re written by rank newbies who don’t even make money online themselves, so how the hell can they be telling you how to make money online with any authority or credibility?
The short answer is that they cannot.
Most successful Internet Marketers tend not to divulge their make money secrets or give away their closely guarded money hints to anyone else for fear that they might steal their ideas and compete for their slice of the make money online pie. Of course they’ll sell you their ebook with most of their money hints and ways to make money online, but they still won’t tell you everything they know. Well that’s fine for them and its not my concern what other Internet Marketers do or don’t do.
What I will tell you straight from the beginning here is that 95% of all Internet Marketers fail online and of the 5% that do make money, only a small percentage of them actually make a lot of money.
So why is this?
Because there is so much hype out there from “get rich quick” mongers and so many newbies fall into the trap of believing that all they have to do is buy this or that great product for godknows how many hundreds of dollars then press a button and sit back while the money falls into their lap.
Well, wake up call – easy money does not exist.
The truth is that the only sure-fire way to make money online without scamming people is to work bloody hard for it!
If you’re still with me after that one of my sound, solid money hints, then maybe you are interested enough to actually give this a go! I don’t want to frighten anyone off, but to make money online, you need several skills that if you don’t already have them, you need to learn them and soon. Here’s what you’ll need:
- To be able to write
- To be able to read
- To be willing to learn
- To have an open mind
- To be a stayer, not a quitter
That’ll do you for starters. If you don’t possess ALL of those qualities, then start looking in the classified ads for job vacancies at McDonalds, because you don’t stand a chance online without these basic traits. Want to know what else? Even with these essentials, you still need a whole lot more besides, but at least with the basic building blocks you can get started and see if this kind of work suits you.
Because make no mistake – it is work.
So let’s take each of those essential traits and break them down into digestible pieces.
To be able to write means you can write in reasonably good English with reasonably good grammar and spelling. You need to be able to write interesting pieces on whatever subject interests you that other people will be able to read easily and be interested enough to want to read more of what you write. That’s because despite what anyone might tell you about the popularity of video podcasts and audio messages, the written word is still very much king and web content is what will make money for your online enterprise.
To be able to read is a no brainer as you will need to be able to do that to learn the ton of knowledge that you’ll need to succeed online and actually stand any chance to make money. A lesser realized reason is that you will also need to have an interest in reading in order to read other people’s blogs and digest and understand what they’re telling you as well as being able to filter out the bullshit for what it is. That’s because 90% of what you’ll read from aspiring Internet Marketers is regurgitated bullshit they got from some other newbie who hasn’t the first clue how to make money online because they got their information third hand from some other know-nothing penniless newbie.
If you think that’s in your face, then you better get used to it, because there is nothing more heart-breaking than putting a year of your life onto a project only to see it fail because you were working on bad or inaccurate advice from someone who didn’t have the first clue themselves.
Be willing to learn because you will need to spend countless hours learning how to make money online and I’m not talking about a few lousy dollars, I mean sufficient money to be able to live off. Otherwise sweeping the floors in McDonalds is what you’ll be doing to pay the rent!
To have an open mind means you’ll be able to avail yourself of techniques and methods that at first glance might seem unethical or go against your own beliefs. Well, wake up call number two – you have to ask yourself one important question. “Do I want to make money online?” If the answer is YES, then you will have to leave your morals at the door before you walk into your office and switch your computer on. Some of the methods you will need to employ to make money by definition have to be hard-nosed and competitive, because you will have many rivals for every dollar you want to earn and if you don’t grab it first, then someone else will get it before you. So keep an open mind as to some of the methods you will come across – as long as you are not actually hurting anyone, then you can sleep with a clear conscience.
Be a stayer, not a quitter because if you spend several weeks or months in building something and it doesn’t bring the rewards straight away you have to keep at it in order to see your labours bear fruit. While there are some underhand methods available to use to make money pretty fast, your mainstay online income will come from long term investments in time, hard work and patience. If you give up too soon without waiting for results to happen, then you’ll just be joining the 95% of all other Internet Marketers who have failed and will continue to fail because they gave up too soon.
Bottom line is: NEVER GIVE UP!
If you never give up and always believe in yourself, then with the right information, determination and motivation you will succeed and make money online.
