I love blogs and blogging, but with all good things, especially those online, it comes with a whole new host of problems. Search engines love blogs and therefore so do spammers. Spammers love blogs only because blog spamming techniques work, thanks to the search engines and bloggers themselves.

I’m sure you’re wondering by now how this is done. Well it is really quite simple all you have to do is contact the owners of popular blogs in your niche. For the niches I am involved in I have a long list of blogs that I can contact for guest posting. To look for blogs in your niche search for top blogs on Google or use Stumble Upon. Stumble Upon is great because you can search in your niche and it’s easy to find popular pages with great content and they are often blogs. Start compiling your list of business profile so you can easily find new sites to guest post on.

Warrior Forum often has posters who list blogs with dofollow links enabled. You may have to search around a bit, but they’re there. The problem here is the same problems as numbers 1 and 2 above – namely these blogs get ambushed with spam and the dofollow is changed to nofollow quickly.

Many of these kinds of sites often run ads provided by Google or Yahoo, or both in an effort to profit from some other person’s hard work. In the case of the above, they are using my article to help sell their services.

It is not easy to maintain several blogs. The owners of multiple blogging sites must have sufficient resources to manage each of their blog properly. However, this does not mean that you must steer clear from having multiple blogs in order to make money online. There are marketers who can do it profitably.

Next, find some place to publish your blog. There are a number of sites – both paying and free – that give bloggers a chance to publish their material. You may also want to simply set up your blog on your web site, especially if you already have an active web site.

Interactive, Dynamic and Worthy – Blogs are very dynamic masterpieces and interactive too. You can see your blog immediately as you post it. Unlike ezines, newsletters and forums, blogs present a meticulous picture on any issue. Moreover, a blogger has freedom to express on sundry topics as well.

At the end of the day, deciding on whether or not you want to have a website or blog will depend on what your purpose is, your skill level, and budget. Visit blogs to see what they look like and how they are structured and do the same with websites. Then decide what will work best for you and what you want to achieve.
