Blogging just for Money or for Passion Too

I have seen so many Start up Bloggers either Monetizing their Blog with PayperPost or ReviewMe Services at their early startup. Basically these services Pay Bloggers for Posting articles on Topics of their Choice on their Blog. Is it really worth?

Recently i read an article as show above a list of Top Earners at PayperPost and other Paid Review Services. I Particularly have nothing against Paid Bloggers but i definitely feel that Blogging just for the sake of Money seem to really reduce the Quality of Bloggers in the Blogging World.

Taking an example of any of the Top Bloggers like Stevepavlina, Problogger there is definite quality in their Blogs. One cannot make Huge Money in Blogging from Day One and it is certainly going to take some time depending on the amount of Time and effort you are putting into it.

On the other Hand there are Paid Posts where a Blogger posts about a Topic for example "Credit card Debt ". The Blogger who is reviewing the topic would have absolutely no knowledge about the topic but would have a Blog post on the Topic. Here is a nice example why one blogger has quit PayperPost Review.

Blogging definitely could be used for Monetization but at the same time one shouldn't Blog just for Money. Blog with Passion and you are definetely going to make a number of new friends and at the same time learn a number of things that you wouldnt learn in the outside word.

Worlds Fastes Internet Connection in Sweden

United States might have the Largest Number of Internet Users compared to any other country in the World but when it comes to High Speed Internet it is the European Nations that are dominating the News.

Recent News from a Swedish News Paper indicates that the World's Fastest Internet Connection belongs to a 75Yr old Woman.

Sigbritt Löthberg mother of Swedish Internet legend Peter Löthberg owns a 40Gb High Speed Internet Connect at her Home. Would you believe that she can watch about 1500 HD TV Channels simulataneously on her TV. Further She can Download a High Definition Movie DVD in 2 seconds.

The Magazine says "The ultra-fast connection speed has been achieved by a new modulation technology. It allows data to be transferred directly between two routers up to 2,000 kilometres apart, without any intermediary transponders".

The presence of such a High Speed Broadband Internet Connection shows that Distance cannot limit the Bandwidth and Speed of Internet connection. While countries like North America and other European Countries enjoy High Speed Internet Connection it is still far from reality in Developing countries in Africa and Asia.

India the fastest Developing country still doesnt have dedicated Broadband connection even across Major cities like Delhi, Bombay, Chennai and Calcutta. Some Countries in Africa don't even know what Internet is and on the other end of the spectrum we have 40GB High Speed Connection. What a reality?. The funny thing about this article was that the most difficult part of setting up this internet connection was Installing Windows OS on her PC.

Are Keywords in Posts and Title URL's Important for Search Engine Traffic

Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN or take any other search Engine base their Results of a Search text based on the Keywords. This might be familiar for Bloggers but for Bloggers who are new to this Blogging World here is a tip for you .I have used this Technique for a couple of my posts and have seen an Increase in Search Engine Traffic. Read more to find the Search Engine Traffic Secret...

are nothing but words used by Search Engine Users across the World to find Content relevant to their Search Term. Search Engines use these Keywords and try to Find Relevant Pages on the Internet from across Billion's of Web pages . Blog Posts that have relevant content to the Search Term would be Displayed in the Search Results.

Again the Results would be Displayed based on Relevancy and then on the Freshness of the Content. So What do we learn from this Information ?. A Majority of Blogs that are growing up would get Traffic mainly from Search Engines compared to the Traffic from other Blogs or Link Exchange Websites.

who are Starting a Blog must give Importance to Keywords in order to Find Traffic from Search Engines. The Best Place to Start using Keywords would be in the Title and in the Blog posts. Title forms the First impression to a Blog Visitor. So that doesnt mean you flood in all the keywords in your Title. All it means is that the next time you post a Blog Post just think for a minute about Keywords.

Just think about the Keywords that your Visitor might use in Search Engines relevant to the content in your Blog post. Add one or Two Keywords in your Blog Post and a couple in your Blog Post to rank yourself high in your Search Engine. Adding Keywords to Title and Posts is Imperative of Bloggers who use Adsense or any other Content Based Ad System.

There are a number of sites promoting about Adsense Keywords, Top Paying Keywords, Popular Keywords, High Paying Keywords etc. I do not know if they work or not but following such a system will only degrade the Quality of your Content. Blogging is not about only Making Money. It is a way of Expressing your Interests. You need to Enjoy the Process of Blogging. After all if you can become Rich Overnight Who wouldnt want to...??

Google Adwards Tool, Overture and Word Tracker offer Nice Free Keyword Tools that let you Search for Keyword relevant to your Content. I Particularly like the Overture Keyword Selector Tool as it gives me a Number of the Quantity of Searches for the Keyword in the Current Month.

So the Next Time you Make a Post Try using of these Keyword Tools and Monitor your Posts for Traffic.

Remember that Blogging is a Learning Process and it will Take time and Traffic will grow Steadily. You could also try adding Images relevant to your Post to increase Visitors interest. Recent Survey indicates that most Visitors first Browse through a Blog Content first Before they sit down to Read Topics of interest on a Blog.

Increase Blog Readability by Adding Pictures

I Stumble across a lot of Blogs online and with information overflowing How does a User decide if he is going to read the content on the Blog or skip to the next Blog.

Well the question is really complex with no single answer but statistics on the Internet could give you an idea as to How you can Hold on to your Visitors with Quality Content and with a bit if Glamour.

A Recent Study by the Online Publishers Association has indicated that there is a 47% growth in users who are Interested in Watching Content rather than reading,Web search content only accounted for 5% of Internet usage. What does this study relate to Blogging?. Well the point that the study indicates is that First time Users tend to navigate across the website looking for Interesting Content rather than reading it.

It is said that " A picture can talk more than a few words" so the point that Iam trying to reach is that Bloggers need to have Quality Content but at the same time add some Life of Interest to your Posts with a Picture. An Image that is related to a Post will definitely catch the interest of the visitor.

With a new blog started at every few minutes it is important for Start up Bloggers to convert a First Time Visitor to a Returning Visitor. So the next time don't forget to add a picture to your Post.What do you think of the idea??.

Zoho Writer adds more Language Features and Restores Full Search Feature

I have always been a fan of Open Source Software and one of my Favourites is the Zoho Software Bundle. Zoho could also be called as the Free Microsoft Office Package as it does offer features that are comparable to Microsoft Office. Zoho has recently updated its Writer Software to add more language support and a Search Feature included in Zoho Writer.

Zoho Writer is an Online Word Processing Software where users can create, share and Edit Word Document Files Online with ease. Users have no hassles of installing Large Software Packages on their Hard Disks using Zoho Writer. All you need to do is create a User name at Zoho Website and you are all ready to create, edit and modify a Word Document.

Zoho has a nice impressive design and offers great features that can be easily taught or learnt by novice or beginner users. I personally like a feature in Zoho Writer where Multiple users can work simultaneously on the same Document at the same Time. Zoho also allows users to use Switch Features where users can switch between various products offered like Zoho Chat,Zoho meeting , Zoho NoteBook etc with ease.

Zoho Latest Update has added Japanese Language support to Zoho Writer along with exisiting support to English , French, Spanish, German etc. The Full Search that has been disabled for a long time has been restored to allow users to search within Documents in English Only.

Zoho even offers an iPhone version Software known as iZoho. iZoho is the iPhone compatabile version of iZoho Office suite that by far is the best office software for iPhone.
