Blogging to Make Money Online

Got an email from a trainer the other day who is “new” to the Internet scene, and he wanted to know how to make money selling products (as an affiliate) on his blog.

His blog was called, but I had a couple of recommendations about that name…

Here’s my reply…

Great to hear from you.

I recognize your name from one of the testimonials you sent in months ago.

I have a free report on affiliate blogging here:


The report will give you the info on how to set up affiliate links. If any questions remain, let me know.

AND there is one other MAJOR thing you must do.

Well, two.

1) You need a name, not a blogspot name. But that only costs $10/year.

If you can afford it, buy it for 10 years on godaddy, because Google gives extra credit to websites that plan to be around for a longer time.

If you buy for only 1-2 years (and then renew the name every 2 years), google thinks you might just be some scam site and doesn’t rank you high in the listings.

2) You need a better name for your site.

It should contain keywords…words that our potential readers would think to type in when they sit in front of google and want weight loss info…

Being in Florida and wanting to sell fat loss e-books, I think something along the lines of would be a good idea.

However, by now, many good names are taken…so you’ll need to be clever and creative to find a good name.

Feel free to send me any follow up questions,
