    Hi everyone:
    I'm a real newbie and need some advice. I started a blog about wine. I'm really into it!. I have tasting advice on wines, restaurants etc. My own domain as well. Question about keywords? How do I find the appropriate keywords so that I get noticed. Is there a program ( for lack of a better term). What else do I need to get noticed? What are keyword tails? Don't think I got this right! What are the best affiliate programs to use?

    Lots of people write about wine, so I need to get noticed. ANy ideas will help me greatly. I'm recently unemployed and running out of $$$. If I can help you as well and reciprocate I WILL! I'm married to a great top notch programmer, if that Helps. WHat ever is the best way to do this, let me know.

    HELP ME, I'M Drowning in WINE

    a pretty good tool to find keywords is Google.

    Try:
    Code:
    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    , simply type in wine and you will get lots of great keywords. You can even search by average competitors or search volume.

    Simply go to other blogs and commenting.. or promote at social network like friendster too... it help.. then find directory submission and social bookmarking submission after that
    submit some of article that point to your blog at some article directory or with software.

    or buy cheap traffic to go for ranks in alexa

    Home Page:
    Use Google keyword tool. It is free and provide some good results for me.
    I am using that since i can't afford for a paid one.
    For every topic, there are lot of people who are writing about the same topic. I don't think that we can find any topic that we are the only one writing about it. It doesn't mean that we can't be successful. If you can put some hard work in to it, you will be a success story for sure. But it will take some amount of time.

    i'm FAIRLY sure there's ripped copies of programs/tools available in this forum (download links) that can get you paid tools/memberships to things like that you might need. i don't do blogging/seo or anything but use the search function in the member downloads section for like SEOelite or something like that.. i dont' actually know what it is, i'll be honest, but i'm sure it can help you.. and people have *somehow* made it available. worth checkin out. you prob already knew that tho.

    Also, I guess I need lots of links from other sites. How do I do that?
    Social networks, directories, etc. WHat do u think is the fastest way to get exposure?

    Do u have a seperate page to sell items related to a blog? What's the easiest way?

    Thanks so muc

    Most networking sites do give u automatic linking to your blog. something like an RSS feed application, i think. so u update your rss page and then all the sites would get updated automatically.
