Whenever I mention how much money I make online there are plenty of people who doubt that some even call me out to show proof of income. It isn’t that hard to create a fake check or a fake image of an Clickbank account so plenty of people do that too. One think I always mention and one thing that many find hard to believe is that
“if I stopped working on my online business now I will be making 200$ per month without doing anything”
It really isn’t that hard to understand, every blog post I write , every Squidoo lens I create or every hub I create is an investment. Some of them rank well for some popular keywords in Google and I make money from those posts and lenses as long as they are ranked in Google. Even the pages that don’t rank I can use them to link to other sites, other posts etc so they will give a small search engine boost to my other pages. As these posts grow older they gain more trust with Google and provide more traffic to my sites.
The power of ranking in search engines
Here is a small example to show you the power of ranking. A while back I wrote a post about how to increase your twitter followers. It ranks well for some popular keywords and that posts get some decent traffic.If you checked it out carefully you can see that there are affiliate links to three product involving twitter. So far I have earned more than 500$ from those three products ( Hummingbird ~ 130$ / Social Snipe ~ 350$ / SocialOomph ~ 120$ ) and I still earn money whenever someone buys from those links and I will earn money as long as it performs well in search engines. Those earning are not considering the Adsense and InfoLink earning I get from that post. That is just one post, Imagine having ten or hundred posts like that and then you can understand why it is possible to earn a passive recurring income online. As any business you need to work hard to achieve that but it is an income that grows steadily with time.
Not everything turns into gold
Not every post or Squidoo lens I write performs like that but that is OK. When I first started this blog way back in 2007 I didn’t know anything about keyword research or search engine optimization. There are things I wish I knew earlier but I consider that period as a learning curve. The learning is far from over but at least now I have a basic idea on what to do to make money online. Those old posts and lenses are still a worth investment , as they grow old they gather trust in search engines and I can use them to rank my recent more researched and targeted posts. So all those time spent writing posts haven’t gone to waste.
