    heeee im shy atm :p LOL

    Here is my first "guide" (if i can say that) here on BHW and i start this quite easy , any established marketer already know all this for sure so dont throw rocks at me im sure it can be usefull for beginners ;)
    I did write that pretty fast so i might have forgot few things i will update frequently to add new things :D

    This Basic Guide serie will describe each steps and tools i used to get from 0$ a day to anywhere between 90-250$ daily

    PART 1 : Your webite is ready ? good! Now you sould do this! :p

    Will follow in this guide series:
    PART2: Traffic , organic / link pyramid
    PART3: Likes /share /social / Online reputation management
    PART4: Monetisation
    PART4-B: Outsourcing
    PART5: Blog migration to a top level domain
    PART6: List building / development of customer loyalty
    PART7: Tools and Softwares everyones MUST have
    PART8: Autopilot all that !


    In order

    1-Try to optimise your keywords in both pages and posts :

    https://adwords.google.com/
    http://www.webconfs.com/keyword-density-checker.php
    http://www.seocentro.com/tools/seo/keyword-density.html


    2- Build sitemaps and do some basic SEO


    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/



    3-Suscribe and use all these:

    http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/
    http://www.google.com/analytics/
    http://www.bing.com/toolbox/webmaster/


    3-Search engine submit :

    http://www.google.com/addurl
    http://www.bing.com/toolbox/submit-site-url
    https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/submit
    http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=[your sitemap web address] (sitemap only)
    http://api.moreover.com/ping?u=[your sitemap web address] (same as ask.com)


    4-Ping website :

    http://www.pingmylink.com/submit/


    5-Rss submit and social bookmark:
    (If its not already done suscribe to all those who need membership , most of them dont require acount tho)

    First you want to install this plugin and use the "pannel like" sharing tool in all you post
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shareaholic/screenshots/

    Then

    http://www.twitter.com/
    http://www.reddit.com/
    http://www.pinterest.com/
    http://www.stumbleupon.com/
    http://www.buzzfeed.com/
    http://www.delicious.com/
    http://www.friendfeed.com/ (well...i got some thin result with this )

    (you can share to 100s of social website/bookmarks right from your website pages and posts using the shareaholic plugin we instaled..this would save you lot of time trust me )


    6- After all that (wheeeheee) submit your url here :

    http://www.dmoz.org/add.html
    DMOZ !!

    Thats it for the basics :D



    It might look like a lot of work...but to make good income you need at MINIMUM to do these things ..unless you personaly know a lil lepruchun that can bring you a pot of gold right at your door every morning ..:p


    Hope this helped you somehow

    Have a nice day!

    Fukien

    Hehe sure if you have a crappy blogger spammed with uncloaked affiliate link and penis pils you wont get thru the aproval process ;)

    But a nice clean and professional top domain can make it ;)
    Thanks for the comment i will add a line about that :p

    Thanks for the tips. I'm very new to this so first I just want to try stuff out for free before investing money. Can you recommend some free server-space providers so I'd be able to install Wordpress plug-ins? Because I realized it doesn't work without an external server.

    Hi mate ,

    i have something in mind that could help you out BUT its only a short time solution since you will have to pay one day

    I did use this at the begining of my venture while i was not yet making money and was also realy short in money

    what you could do is go to "hostingpen" website (google this)
    they have a special offer that allow you to get free hosting for the first 3 months
    and this include also a free top domain name .com .edu uncluded

    the only downside is that after the 3 free months you will be automaticly billed around 70$ to your credit card
    ( fee for 1 years of hosting and domain name)
    this hosting provide unlimited bandwith diskspace and subdomains as well as a cpanel (no wordpress quick install script but you can find walktrough for manual install on wordpress help forum and its quite easy to do)

    If you dont have money right now it gives you the opportunity to save 20$ per months to be able to pay them lather on

    I know its not FREE as you asked but its the best option in my own opinion since all free hosting have ads and are often subdomains like www.frehostingforall.yoursitename.cxm wich is not bether than a free wordpress url..


    Hope this helped!

    have a nice day!

    Home Page:
    When first time I go with copied content and put google away from my blog. Then I shouldn't do this right?
    When I got enough money to purchase a better original content and welcome google to my blog, then I should really do this.
    Am I right?

    Totaly , if you use scrapped/copied content dont send your stuff to search engines since it can penalise you , even if you add new content you might be penalised for 1-3 months before they start to rank you bether . If you plan on getting original content lather forget Seo and google and try to focus on the social aspect of your promotion , you could also try direct advertising in forum / blog post ..but dont advertise here ;) :p

    have a nice day

    Does this apply to Blogger (.blogspot domains) too? I just started off with a movie review blog and I'm currently in the process of adding more and more unique content, but, afterwords, I'll have to worry about SEO I guess.

    Anyway, thank you in advance! :)
