Monetizing Wordpress #2 - Content is King


With the advent of blogging, there has evolved different ways to monetize your website. We explore a few ways to make money on the internet using a simple Wordpress site. This lesson focuses on creating quality content that will engage your audience and rank well with Google.


Most people start a website and know nothing about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) or what a benefit organic search can be to their site. Google and other search engines send web traffic to your site based upon the quality of the articles you write. This can equate to $ thousands of dollars of free traffic that you would normally have to pay for. In this lesson we will learn how to create an image gallery page that Google and our reader will love.
