In my search to find ways to the secrets of making money with WordPress I cam across a vast number of sites, more than I would ever care to read, there were 14,100,000 different listings so me being the good little researcher I am (cough) started at the top and the article was very well put together. I will list the sites I visited on down the page a little, however the first article was by Victor Pride titled The No Bullshit Guide to Making Money Online, written in 2011 and still at #1 on Google, that has to say something, while it didn’t cover WordPress it did cover making money online in general.
The article is great and quite long, the site Bold & Determined where the article is hosted may be a little rough and brash for some. It does have some good articles and some that are not so good well in my personal opinion that is, the author has some loyal readers that will fire back at those that express different ideas but it’s all cool that’s the great thing about the internet, you can take bits of information that works for you and use it, and you can leave the rest behind. Also if you don’t like or agree with something no bigger no one is making you read every last word. This site is mostly geared towards men, the empowerment of men, men’s health and success. There was an article about finding the right wife that I didn’t agree with but it did have some good points here and there, so most women won’t care for it very much.
Moving on I then traveled down the page and picked BforBlogging’s article on Top 10 Secrets to Writing Money Making Blog Posts which contains some good useful information for what I am trying to achieve here at the blog. It talks about post structure, SEO Friendly content, meaningful content even if its short, internal linking, and more.
My next stop was an article titled How do I Start a Blog and Make Money over at Tips and Tricks HQ. The article lays out step by step what you need to do to create a blog and then making money from it, there are no short cuts and it takes work and time but if you follow the steps. I personally think the site contains some great information and is well put together and even has an affiliate program that I’ll have to check into later, but the design needs some changes the white of the navigation just does not work very well.
The next place I landed looked like utter crap, the information was good, but not for me at this point in my life not until I start pulling in some traffic on this blog about 1000 visitors a month would be great. Anyway the article is titled $10,000 Per Day – The Secret To Making Big Money Online by John Chow, it’s rather short but talks mainly about selling higher ticket items and making more than you would selling $10 items or using Google AdSense, I can see the logic, but getting that one high ticket sale would be nightmare for me, I have a hard enough time giving away free information. For someone who makes so much money he sure skipped when it came to site design, but the money is in the funnels. Signup for the free eBook and it’ll take you to a click funnels page where they’ll collect your email address so they can send you other offers after all there is money in the list and funnels allow you to try to sell other products or different packages of the same product, anyway next.
I fell way on down the page and landed on my face at WPBlogging360.com on an article title Top 10 Ways to Make Money Online (Easily) which seems to be a good article, has good site design, and so on. While the article was good and the information solid the author got very lazy with the links they only linked to a couple of sites and didn’t bother linking to the rest but that’s just my opinion but it’s not a big deal just copy and paste the sites that interest you into Google or whatever search engine you use and it’ll do the rest.
I then went over and paid a visit to Make Money With Your WordPress Blog, it’s a website/blog that while it does contain some good information is in reality a sales page for an book on Amazon by the same name, so I’m sure that while the site has some good information it just does not give you the answers that are in the eBook. Most of the content has to do with affiliate marketing, which is the method I use, you’ll find very few products that I made my self here, if any because they are works in progress.
So after that pit stop I stumbled into a site called How to Make Honest Money Online and landed on a review of something called $7 Dollar Secrets. Yeah that page was all about an older program that may not work for everyone, go figure just like all the rest, but it was fairly well written and only contained a few mistakes. However the site itself contain some good information and has a few reviews for some affiliate products that can give you a heads-up before you spend your hard-earned money on them.
I then skipped over about four pages and found myself staring at Hellbound Blogger’s article about 10+ Interesting Ways How Porn Websites Make Money and couldn’t help but laugh, just glad I wasn’t drinking a glass of milk. I admit I’ve looked at porn sites in the past and never gave a second thought to all the different ways they make money, I even had a porn site at one time, only had a few sales, but that was my fault for not promoting it enough, heck I didn’t promote it at all. Anyway there are some really good pointers in this article if you want to start your own porn site or not.
Next I got tired of all the reading and a few sites were flagged in Microsoft Edge, so I took a brief break to rest my eyes and go get a drink, a came back and went over to an article called How To Make 6 Figures in a Year With No SEO hosted at https://feinternational.com/ which clam to be Professional Website Brokers.
Sense I like to travel and dream of broadening my travel experience I clicked on How To Start A Travel Blog: A Step By Step Guide over at Expert Vagabond. This site didn’t really go into great detail about making money online but in starting a travel site, you could make a good bit of money with the right promotions and right packages. You could offer to arrange travel for people for a slightly higher fee than it would cost them to do it themselves or have a shop on your site the sells travel related products. The earning potential could be great over time, can’t compete with the larger travel sites, you don’t have to think locally or regionally, maybe just your own state but those are my ideas you can’t use them lol.
Well that’s about it, the deeper I went the less and less stuff I found that was even remotely related to my keywords, oh well I’ll do another search later and see where that leads me. Hopefully not down a dark alley way with creepy perverts and crooked folks. Anyway enjoy and let me know what your personal favorite site about making money online using WordPress and I will review it and may even add it to the list.
