are, you’ve witnessed the change of tide that took place within the professional blogging arena.
In mid 2005, making money with blogs was easy. All you really had to
do was slap up a bit of content, implement a series of relevant ads, tag your posts and articles with keywords and
sit back as the traffic (and profits) rolled in.
Then the search engines made a series of changes, resulting in the loss of quality and relevancy given to websites
that failed to present quality, original content. And blogging changed
In early 2010, “auto blogging” was introduced to the Internet marketing
arena, and with the promise of automated profits and “hands-free” websites, thousands of people scrambled to
exploit these powerful, content-grabbing tools. In fact, many of the auto blogging scripts and software that was
heavily promoted offered far more than instant, auto-generated content.
these scripts also populated these content scraping blogs with multiple profit-producing channels, such as the
integration of EBay ads, Amazon ads and digital products from places like ClickBank.com.
In truth, many people made money with this new auto blogging system, but it didn’t take long before they too, were
infamous “Google Panda” update that took place in early 2011, any website that was found to be based on low
quality content (as well as private label content, and content developed purely with the intention to presell),
was immediately pulled from search rankings. Even popular sites
that were previously considered to hold authority in the search engines, such as EzineArticles.com, suffered a
loss of ranking with many of their pages and directories pulled altogether.
The search engines demanded better content, in direct response to outraged consumers and web users who were fed up
with being led through countless hoops with search queries. They
couldn’t find the valuable content and information they were looking for, and the major search engines were forced
to restructure the way that they delivered search results.
And they all came tumbling down…
everyone suffered a loss in profits and search engine standings. Many people actually benefited from all of
these “content grading” changes.

demanded better content – and bloggers who delivered it were tremendously rewarded.
And it will only continue to get better for anyone who focuses on delivering real content to a targeted audience of
buyers. In other words, you’re able to generate non-stop profits by exchanging “content for cash.”
And I’m going to show you exactly how to do it.
The Bloggers’ Revenge
profitable blogs is, by all measures – incredibly easy. However, in
order to stand out in the market and gain the same rewards that professional bloggers continue to reap, you need
to build your blogs on a solid, unshakable foundation that focuses exclusively on the average consumer.
To do this, you need to get into the mindset of those who will ultimately visit your website. Would you want to be
bombarded by ad after ad, or forced into some exhausting navigational system, in order to find the content you’ve
been looking for?
No, you wouldn’t, and neither do your visitors. In order to build a profitable blog that will easily solidify its
place in your niche, you need to create every square inch of your blog so that it focuses on offering a positive
browsing (and shopping) experience. You want your blog to provide exceptional value, to build up a loyal audience,
and to stand the test of time, so that you can continue to make money for many years to come.
This special report was written to help you better understand the reasons why some blogs are incredibly successful,
while others fall to the wayside, barely a bleep on the search engine’s radar.
And the reason is a simple one – those who produce extremely relevant, high quality content will be rewarded –
while those who take the quick and easy way, failing to deliver anything of value, will suffer a “Bloggers Revenge”.
content providers deserve to rank higher in the search engines. After all, they’ve put the time and effort into
building content-based websites that offer real, substantial value.
they were forced into competing with rogue marketers, lazy affiliates, and fly-by-night salesmen who exploited
the power of blogging to their own advantage. They gave nothing back to the community, offered nothing of value
to consumers – yet they were making more money than many full time bloggers!
…. But things have changed, and
these days you are only rewarded for real, genuine contributions.
This is great news for people who understand the importance of providing value, because for the first time ever,
the tables have turned and YOU can finally build a prosperous website in virtually any niche market you choose,
just by following a simple – yet incredibly powerful system.
Let’s take a closer look at what you need to do in order to seize the opportunity to join the ranks of the
Internet’s most successful bloggers.
Optimization Is Key

tags and data found
within your website pages. While Meta optimization is important in
order to rank for your chosen keywords, there are other forms of on-site optimization that shouldn’t be
Simplifying The Buyers Shopping Experience
You’re interested in blogging because you want to deliver real value to consumers, but of course, you also want
your website to be profitable. Hence, you will likely have plans to
integrate advertisements, and product links directly into your content and navigational system.
However, it’s important that you don’t overlook the importance of “simplification”. In order to maximize your sales, you need to make the shopping experience a fun,
and easy one.
To do this,
you will want to create categories of products on your blog, segmented by product type and overall group
will this make it easier for your visitor’s to find what they are looking for, but it will have a direct impact
on your search engine results, as “SILO” structured websites that are properly categorized and grouped will
always rank higher in search engine results.
Categorizing Products & Sub
Think of your categories as aisles of a store. Each category features specific product types. For example, one
category could be “Electronics”, and another “Health & Wellness”. While it’s important that you create a theme
for every blog, so that each one focuses on a specific segment of your market, it’s even more important that you
properly categorize your website so that visitors’ can quickly find exactly what they’re looking for.
In order to optimize your category tags, you should consider using popular keywords as the title for each category.
For example, if you discover that the keyword string “top toys for teens” is widely used in your market, you could
use this keyword string to form the title of your category.

often the most profitable of all blogs because not only do they offer an extensive library of high quality
content, but because of the interaction available on the site from your material, content as well as the
contributions of regular visitor’s, bloggers and members.

Now, when you
start to build a passion based authoritative website, you’ll have to put in a lot more time and effort initially

traffic, passion sites can be set up on almost complete autopilot just by allowing your website visitors’ to
contribute to the content of the site.
you could open the doors to guest bloggers who are able to contribute their own content in exchange for a
backlink to their website. You could also outsource the majority of content to qualified freelancers, and set it
up so that 2-3 new articles are set to automatically publish every week.
behind passion sites is that you need to continue updating the site with material on a regular
basis. Passion sites become authority websites over time because
of the sheer amount of content and material offered to visitors.

search of a low interest credit card, or a card with specific terms (unrestricted, secured, etc).
Many of these
websites offer an interactive option to visitors where they can enter in specific search queries or customize
search results based on their preferred options.

building solid backlink campaigns, utilizing social media to target your customer base, and driving in traffic

Keywords help the search engines define the overall theme of your website, and in turn, they will direct customers’
