While it may be difficult to outrank the key players in your industry for extremely competitive terms, ranking well in the areas in which your business excels — and the content niche you’re looking to dominate — is surprisingly attainable. By being realistic about what you can achieve and remaining flexible in your efforts to achieve it, your blog can begin to form the centerpiece of your wider content program; all you have to do is write, and write strategically!


The Title is the most important tag on the page for search engines. This tag provides a short description of the page. Google displays page title with Arial font face, 18 pixels inside a div tag of 512 pixels. How is that translated into characters length? In most cases the title tag should never be more than 80 characters long, 55-70 characters length are fine. There are also free Ttitle checkers available.

Do you constantly come up with witty one-liners? Do you dream of the days of Mad Men-style advertising? If you’ve got some branding chops or just come up with imaginative copy, there are lots of opportunities to make money online through company naming and slogan contests. If you think you have a knack for names check out the Squadhelp platform where you can earn a little extra money online by naming brands, services, products, company slogans and even help out on the logo design front if you've got the chops.
Alternatively, you can look at SERP Position History in Ahrefs Keyword Explorer to check whether or not the existing content for a keyword is ranking steadily. A steady line indicates that people find the SERP content relevant and informative. An unstable line, however, means the SERP content is poor and irrelevant. If your keyword shows a steady SERP line, you can create high-quality content based on that keyword.
Great article, I have tried a few over the years. I had a side business cleaning offices for years. It did great, but I hated never being able to take more than 3-4 days vacation, so I eventually gave up. I tried MTurk, but if you multiplied my earnings on an hourly basis, it was a little over $6/hr. My blog is much worse, probably less than $0.25/hr.
Recent statistics show that nearly 60% of search queries come from mobile devices rather than desktop queries (source). As a result, Google heavily considers mobile optimization as part of their ranking algorithm. For this reason, it’s critical that your blog has a responsive design so it displays correctly on mobile devices and tablets as well as desktop browsers.
Sponsored posts work much in the same way as paid guest posts, but they are posted by big businesses instead of individual bloggers. Therefore, the scope for fees is much higher, as businesses have larger marketing budgets than humble bloggers. Having sponsored posts by large companies will also help promote your site as reputable and as a leader in its field.
You must pay Bank and Bank may, without prior notice or demand, obtain payment of all fees, charges and other amounts due to Bank for Transfers and for following related instructions, as well as any out-of-pocket costs incurred by Bank in carrying out the instructions given by you pursuant to this Wire Agreement, by debiting any Account, on the day Bank transmits the Transfer request, the date you submit the Transfer instructions to Bank or on such other date as is agreed to by Bank in writing.  You must pay Bank the fees for the Services provided by Bank hereunder according to Bank’s current fee schedule, as it may be amended from time to time.
There are many ways to get people onto your list. Lead magnets are one such resource. For example, you can build ebooks, checklists and cheat sheets. But you can also do content upgrades, such as PDF versions of an article with added resources in them, four-part video training series, and more. Think about your audience and what you can offer them to better serve them, then treat them with some respect and you'll eventually reap the rewards.

Mow lawns or plow driveways. If you’re willing to mow yards or shovel or plow snow in the winter, you could easily start your own snow removal and lawn mowing business on the side. While you can usually find work by reaching out to your local community via word-of-mouth, flyers, or online message boards, the website Plowz & Mowz allows you to set up an online profile and reach more customers in your area.

Like you I am a scientist and like you did in the past, I am currently working on translating great scientific literature into tips. In my case it’s child development research into play tips for parents. I can already see that the outcome of my experiment is going to be the same as yours. Great content but who cares. I hadn’t even thought about my key influences. I know some important ones, but don’t see how they would share my content. I thought I was writing content for my potential customers. Is your SEO that works course the same as the content that gets results course? Sorry if I sound a bit dim asking that question.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to process all your payments properly, but it is your sole responsibility to ensure compliance with applicable rules, policies and/or procedures of the payee or their agent (such as the U.S. Treasury / Internal Revenue Service). We make no representations or warranties about our ability to process any payments to federal, state, or local tax agencies and you should assume that we cannot process such payments at all.
If Images of Items you previously deposited are dishonored and returned unpaid by the drawee bank or are returned by a clearing agent for any reason, including but not limited to issues relating to the quality of the Image, you understand and agree that, since you either maintain the original Item or have destroyed the original Item in accordance with this Remote Deposit Agreement, including the “Maintenance and Destruction of Original Item” section, the original Item will not be returned and Bank may charge back an Image of the Item to your checking account. You understand and agree that the Image may be in the form of an electronic or paper reproduction of the original Item or a substitute check. Unless otherwise instructed by Bank, you agree not to deposit the original Check if an Image or other debit as previously described is charged back to you.
The File transmitted by you to Bank in accordance with the Procedures shall contain images of the front and the back of the Items scanned and remotely deposited by you (Images).  The Images shall be of such quality that the following information can clearly be read by sight review of the Images:  (1) the amount of the Item, (2) the Payee, (3) the Drawer’s Signature, (4) the Date of the Item, (5) the Item number, and (6) the information identifying the drawer and the paying bank that is preprinted on the check, including the MICR line.
You can work as a virtual assistant through dedicated websites, such as Upwork or Zirtual. All kinds of skills are needed, and compensation can vary anywhere between $10 per hour to $100 or more. Obviously, the higher pay will be to people who have more technical skills, such as web building skills and marketing. But you can find work doing administrative tasks at the lower end of the pay scale.
The Bill Payment Service allows you to schedule bill payments through Cash Management Services. You can schedule, at your option, for the payment of your current, future and recurring bills from any of your eligible River City Bank checking accounts.

Other account types may have transaction limitations as described in your Deposit Agreement and Disclosure. You may pay any merchant or individual through the use of Bill Payment Service. By furnishing us with the names of payees/merchants, you authorize us to follow the payment instructions to these payee/merchants that you provide us through Cash Management Services. The earlier of (a) the date you designate that you would like a payment to be sent and (b) the date the bill payment system can send payment under our normal operating procedures is called the “Send Date”. When we receive a payment instruction (for the current or a future date), we will transfer funds to the payee on your behalf from the funds in your bill payment Account on the Send Date.

Plan your link structure. Start with the main navigation and decide how to best connect pages both physically (URL structure) and virtually (internal links) to clearly establish your content themes. Try to include at least 3-5 quality subpages under each core silo landing page. Link internally between the subpages. Link each subpage back up to the main silo landing page.

– Project Payday is one of those sites that has testimonials of people who have earned thousands of dollars by getting paid to get trial offers. I’m not saying you’ll earn thousands, but it is legit and you can earn some extra cash. They assume that by paying you to do a free trial, you’ll either like the product and purchase it, or forget to cancel the trial and get charged for it. If you can keep track and cancel before you get charged (if you don’t want the product), then this is a great site for making some money.
Thanks for the comment Slava good too see your team is on top of things and happy you liked the post. The website in the case listed was a client who has taken on an agency who was doing lower quality SEO work which was affecting the site such as the huge link network and a strategy which only revolved around mainly head terms. We saw no long tail integration from the old agency's strategy, so we were able to yield great results to begin with. The clients site has 100's of high quality articles which we were able to re optimize and update as noted. Further to this they had a large index of high quality pages to work from. Sure enough the points listed above were key elements to a far wider strategy which could be 100's of points. I just wanted to include some of the biggest wins and easy to implement points.  

In addition to this Access Agreement, you agree to be bound by and will comply with the requirements of the applicable Deposit Agreement and Disclosure, our rules and regulations, the rules and regulations of any funds transfer system in which Bank participates or belongs, and applicable State and Federal laws and regulations.  We agree to be bound by them also.

Working as a freelancer is a great way to make money online from the comfort of your own home. The beauty of freelancing is that you can tailor it to suit your needs. You can freelance for a couple of hours a week in the evenings to help save up for a holiday or some much-needed home improvements. Or carve out a full-time job for yourself, giving you a more satisfying work-life balance and enabling you to do the simpler things in life like taking the kids to school. With so many jobs available online, freelancing is becoming more and more popular.
Take it seriously. Yes, you’re applying for an online job. Yes, you can do the work in your underwear, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a “real job”. You must treat it as such or they aren’t going to treat you as a serious candidate. You aren’t the only one who wants to work in their underwear. In fact, the competition online is likely higher than it is in your local area.
Infographics are currently an extremely popular type of media. An infographic showing information or data in an interesting and fun way can help engage an audience and generate numerous likes and shares. As infographics take more time to create than just simply uploading an image, busy website owners are prepared to pay for custom infographics. And don’t worry, an infographic can be created using simple design software such a Canva. So extensive graphic design skills are not necessary, just a creative eye.
So many businesses are focused on attracting new customers through content marketing that they forget about more traditional methods. Email marketing can be a powerful tool, and even a moderately successful email blast can result in a significant uptick in traffic. Just be careful not to bombard people with relentless emails about every single update in your business. Also, don’t overlook the power of word-of-mouth marketing, especially from people who are already enjoying your products or services. A friendly email reminder about a new service or product can help you boost your traffic, too.
Start by taking other courses you’re interested in: Not only is this important competitor and opportunity analysis, but it also gives you an idea of how a course could or should look and feel. What’s the pacing like? Is it via email, video, in-person chats? Once you understand how you want your course to look, it’s time to decide what it should include. Those same courses are a great starting place. How can you make your course better or more interesting? Do you have experience others don’t?
Salvage and resell. Do you love antiques or have a knack for finding valuables at flea markets or yard sales? If you do, it might be time to consider salvaging items for resale – or even scouting out antiques to sell for a profit. While you’ll need to spend quite a bit of time searching for prospects and spend some money buying upfront, you could easily turn a profit if you know what you’re doing.
A few links down and I've noticed that Brian has a link from WordPress.org. Not bad! Turns out that his content has been referenced within one of WordPress's codex posts. If I were to reach out and offer some additional insight, citing one of my articles, there's a chance I could bag a similar link, especially considering they have a 'Useful Resources' section.

This is the number of views that you can test each month on your website.It's up to you how you choose to use them, either by allocating all the views to one test or to multiple test, either on one page or on multiple pages. If you have selected the 10.000 tested views plan and you run an experiment on your category page which is viewed 7000 times per month, then at the end of the month 7000 is what you'll be counted as tested views quota.
It’s sometimes hard to comprehend just how much people love t-shirts. And with the right niche, marketing, and tools, you can create an online t-shirt business that makes you extra money online while you sleep. (Even Bloomberg and Forbes feature stories from entrepreneurs who've done just that.) Services like TeeSpring make it easier than ever to create a t-shirt drop-shipping business where they handle the sales, printing, and shipping, and you’re only responsible for design and marketing. For more tips, check out this simple guide to launching and marketing an online clothing store by my friends over at Selz.
Brian, great post as always! Question: Do you consider authority sites (industry portals) a form of “influencer marketing?” e.g. guest blogging, etc? In some niches there are not so many individuals who are influencers (outside of journalists) but there are sites that those in the industry respect. I am in the digital video space and for me one site is actually a magazine that is building a very strong digital presence. Thanks, keep up the good work!
Customer understands that Bank may contract with third parties (each, a “Service Provider”) to provide some, all or any of the Services to be provided by Bank under this Lockbox Agreement, Customer will provide such additional documentation and written authorizations that a Service Provider may request from time to time. Customer authorizes Bank to share information with Service Providers about Customer and its principals, affiliates and customers as Bank may deem appropriate.

If the payment account has insufficient funds to cover fees, Bank will deduct the fee from any other checking account linked to Cash Management Services (in any order we may choose).  If the fee cannot be paid, we may cancel your bill pay service.  After cancellation, your bill pay service may be reinstated by contacting River City Bank at (916) 567-2899 once sufficient funds are available in your payment account to cover the bill payment fees and any other pending transfers or debits.
However I feel that batching all the things influencers share , filter whats relevant from whats not… and ultimately niche it down to identify which exact type of content is hot in order to build our own is a bit fuzzy. Influencers share SO MUCH content on a daily basis – how do you exactly identify the topic base you’ll use build great content that is guaranteed to be shared?
Make money on YouTube. People who love the spotlight and have other online hustles should consider creating their own YouTube channel. If you’re interested — and interesting — you can use the platform to market affiliate products, sell products you create yourself, or receive ad revenue for your informal tutorials or entertaining videos. Once you get the ball rolling, YouTube offers a partner program that can help you monetize your business further.

Now, it’s time to start creating and uploading content. Make sure you’re using a high-enough quality camera (most smartphones will work but I’d suggest at least having a tripod so your footage isn’t shaky), but don’t worry about being perfect at first. The beauty of YouTube is that you can continue to test out different content and styles as you find what works for you. Instead, stick to a regular schedule to build up your subscriber base.

Anyone interested in making money online should be pursuing passive income, while also working on active income. There are loads of ways to generate an income passively on the internet, many of which start at the foundation of having a blog, generating substantial traffic and building an audience and a list. Is it easy? Nope. Is it worth it? It sure is. But that doesn't mean you need to start a blog to make money online today.
