    I was thinking about starting monetizing my knowledge about photoshop and web-programming languages (not sure about the translation in English, I'm not mothertongue), anyway I was wondering which blog platform is the best for making money and how to make the blog popular. Is there, in the internet, any kind of tutorial or guide?
    Thank you for the view/answer :)

    Well, there are public blogs like wordpress.com and blogger. I don't think wordpress.com allows for monetization though. If you want to host it yourself WordPress.org and Joomla are both good, but WordPress is a bit easier.

    Being popular is mostly about writing good content and engaging your customers, use social media like facebook/twitter. If you write really good stuff people will want to bookmark it and share it.

    Most blogging setups have plugins that enable social share buttons to make it easy for people to share your pages. This is a must these days.

    Other than that, read about on page SEO like H1's, titles, keyword density, etc. It's trial and error really. If I were you I would spend the next month reading (not posting) the various BHW forums. The Whitehat SEO forum is a good start: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f30-white-hat-seo/

    Wordpress is great. For a free hosting with your own domain, use blogger.com

    WP + plugins will help you monetize your knowledge pretty good.

    He meant Native Language. I have a feeling we're from the same country and in "ad litteram" translation, that's pretty much how it would be translated. Google Translate isn't perfect :))

    On Topic: I'd recommend Wordpress, it's very easy to use and it has many helpful and free plugins. As for free traffic, I'm most comfortable with facebook. You could join some Groups and advertise your blog there, or you could ask a page manager to post something for you in exchange for different services, like creating some posts for them. Same thing for other blogs, you could offer to create articles in exchange for some backlinks. Good luck!
