What others say about making money…

April 16th, 2007 | Posted in blog payment, links
Most people who publish a blog on a regular basis will attract other bloggers and very often agree to share links. As you’ll see on the right hand side of my blog for example there are links to several blogs that I recommend. So, whilst that seems an accepted practice what does it actually mean for the visitor who might click on one of those links.

Today’s post will spend a little time exploring what type of information can be found on the blogs I link to. I’ll choose a specific post from each blog to give a flavour and would encourage you to explore further by visiting the blogs in question.

Being the gentleman I am I’ll start with a lady. Kip is from Minneapolis and writes a blog focused on marketing and technical web issues. A recent post that interested me was for zoho which is an online alternative to Microsoft Office. As Kip explains Google have made a start with providing a word processor and spreadsheet online but zoho has taken this further and they provide a whole host of office software applications that are open source and therefore will not cost anything to use.

Daryl Lau is someone who loves to help others by providing advice and recommendations on how to make money online. He introduced me to Bloggerwave where those who blog can earn money by reviewing products and services. Also, Daryl has provided a 3 column template for Blogger blogs that may find it’s way here in the not too distant future.

As I’m from the UK I’m always interested in connecting with others who live on this small island. One blog that has certainly stolen a march on a lot of others is Mike’s Money Making Mission as the author keeps visitors updated on his mission to make money from a blog without investing any capital. To this end his post about whether bloggers should become their own advertising agents made me stop and think about just how much influence a heavily visited blog might have with companies ever eager to get their message out to the buying public.

My final recommendation is for Alex over at Blog About Money Online where again you can learn about various ways to earn money from posting on your blog. I’ve chosen to spotlight a post about Slash My Search Cash which is a new opportunity to me so I will be following up on that tout suite.

That’s my selection for today so join in the link love-in by visiting the blogs highlighted above, you may just learn something of exceptional value.

Whilst surfing at Bestest Blog of all time I came across a posting on the Making Money on the Net blog and thought it was a great idea.

A Z-list has been created by Mack Collier from The Viral Garden blog and is intended to help small blogs to build links traffic and good rankings in Technorati. It’s a response to the Technorati way to rank blogs based on the links pointing to them.

The list is a meme which is a list of links to blogs which the participating blogs post on their blog and they can then add blogs they like but which are not included.

What benefits can the Z-List bring you and other bloggers:

-Lots of news links to your blog
-Higher ranking on Technorati
-A potential increase in readers and possible RSS subscribers
-A Page Rank increase
-You will have a lot of happy bloggers coming to your blog to thank you
-A lot of new blogs to read
-Good blogs with low exposure will benefit a lot

Note that as a kind of “honor rule” Mack, the creator, suggests that bloggers should not include their blogs on the list to ensure that the list isn’t manipulated for self-promotion. And as Malenki suggested you should include a link to the blog where you found out about the Z-List!

How to participate:

It’s easy, first you create a new post on your blog explaining the Z-List (just like this), then you copy the list and paste it on the post and add the blogs you want to include to the top of the list. Make sure all the links are pointing to the each blog’s homepage, and as Mack suggested do not include your blog, as it will be included by other bloggers in just a matter of time!
