If you are looking for a way to start making money on the internet, and you have a budget that is very small or zero, blogging is a great way to get started.
Blogging has become very popular lately. For one thing, it’s free. For another, you don’t need to have any technical skills what so ever to get started. If you can read and write, you can blog. So what is a blog? A blog is a simple web page that anyone can set up in minutes. People use them as journals, diaries, and sales pages, like you will learn to do here.
You may be wondering how you can make money with a free blog. The answer is by adding Google Adsense, and promoting affiliate products.
You will not make money overnight with this system, but over 2 to 3 months, you can expect to start making some decent money. Remember, the cost for all this is absolutely nothing (other than the cost of this ebook).
For our purposes, we will be using “Blogger”. Blogger is owned by Google, which is one reason we’re using it. Blogs are crawled by the search engines regularly, so you can get indexed very quickly.
It is always best to try and make money from what you know. It is far easier to write about what you know than to try and make money writing about other things. However, having said that, you can find free content on almost any subject, so you can pick a subject that you think would be profitable, but you don’t really know anything about.
- Adsense Research
We will start by finding out how much the maximum bid is for a keyword. Please note that you will not likely get anything close to this value as this is only showing the highest bid. The visitor may click on lower paying ads. Also, there are two types of PPC advertising. They can advertise on the “Search Network” and/or the “Content Network”. If they don’t advertise in the content network, the ads won’t show on your site. This is the best information we have, so it will give you a general idea of the money available for this keyword.

You now need to find out the competition for this keyword. This is a bit labor intensive. I will show you a way to do it for free here.
Go Here and search for the keyword or key phrase that you are targeting for your niche. For instance, if you are targeting “credit card”, you would key it in below as shown.
