PR is the abbreviation for page rank. If someone mentions online that their website is PR1 or PR2 that usually means that the website is located on the first or second page rank of search results in Google. It is important to get your website on PR1 because once you do you will receive a lot of traffic to your website. A website without any traffic is useless especially if you are trying to sell something on your website.
People make websites for many different reasons some people make them to keep a record of their life or thoughts and other people make websites to make money from. Of course if you have a personal blog set up you probably do not want the entire internet getting a glimpse into your personal life. However, if you want to sell something with your website you will want to get as much traffic to your website as possible so that a lot of people buy your product.
You can’t expect to sell anything or make any money off of a website that does not receive any traffic. So once you set up your website and you have a basic idea of what you want to do with it you need to work on content. Website content is anything you put on a website; usually articles, but pictures and videos also count as a form of content. Either way you should focus in writing well written articles about the topic of your website. If the articles you write are interesting you will slowly start to build a following of devoted readers.
If you write articles that have lots of spelling mistakes and poor grammar you won’t be able to build a proper fan base because no one will be able to understand what you are trying to talk about in your articles.
If you really want to learn how to make money with blogs, you must master link building quickly. You will not get a lot of early traffic from your blog, and back linking is key to start this important flow of traffic to your site. I will share with you some of my top tips on how to get up to speed on back linking today:
Submit to article directories — If you want to have your blogging make money, you will have to submit some articles to directories. This activity will get you some “starter traffic”, but more importantly it will get you some links back to your home and post pages. This will get your pages some much needed “votes” in the search engines. This will help your blog rank better for your keywords.
Learn to guest post — You will eventually need to move past the directories and start to “guest post”. This is where you put up your posts on other people blogs. Why would you do this? You will get more back links from different websites to your blog. This will mean more “votes” to your site and more natural traffic for you from the search engines.
Blog and forum commenting — This is another way to get some quality back links to your posts. It can be rather labor intensive to find the right blogs and forums to post on, but can serve as a great change of pace for you now and then. You need to make sure you provide relevant comments to the conversations going on in the forums and post, so your comments will stay up for the long term.
Back linking can be a challenging process for a new blogger. Most people do not want to put their content on article directories and other people’s blogs. This is an essential step to get your blog “off the ground”, so you just need to embrace the concept and make it happen.
