Making Money Online: Why Time is Vital to Succeed in Online Business
Making money online takes time. You don’t join an online business today, and you begin making money immediately. You should, therefore, be careful when joining programs where companies make promises of making quick money. The truth is that it takes time to begin earning some reasonable income from your online business. I ‘m not scaring you, but I am only helping you to have the right mindset for your online business. I strongly advise you to join internet marketing. But when you venture into it, be ready to work for some time because time is a crucial factor in making money online.
Making money online, what does it necessitate you to do first?
Website traffic is the lifeblood or backbone of your online business. And to generate this traffic, you have to get your link to as many sites as possible. You also have to work towards having your website listed among the first 10 to 20 search engine result pages (SERPs) when one does a keyword search using your main website keywords.
Making money online requires you to first work on the above two sources of traffic for some good time before you begin realising sound income. If you have already an online business, where you feel a little disappointed over your inability to get some money out of it, do not despair. Just continue working on creating more links to your website and on your search engine optimisation. Do it effectively for a reasonable time, say, six months or one year, you will begin seeing good results.
Time factor Vs link building
Let me further expound on how time is essential for you to succeed in your online business. As already mentioned, to drive a significant number of visitors (traffic) to your website you need to get your link to many other sites and the most effective way is by writing and publishing articles on the internet. The more posts you write and publish the more links you are likely to create, and the more popular your website will become. Other ways of getting inbound links from other sites include forum marketing, having your affiliate program, guest blogging, creating infographics, using social media, making press releases, exchanging reciprocal links and several others. It takes time to have a good number of inbound links, the reason for spending some time working on your business if you want to begin making money online.
When you write articles, you increase your website’s visibility in the search engines. These search engines want sites with current information and newly updated content. This new information gradually leads to your website’s improvement in the search engine ranking on your main website keywords. When you eventually rank on the first or second page of the SERPs, you stand high chances of getting free website traffic, which is the basis of making money online.
Search engine optimisation Vs making money online
Secondly, making money online necessitates you to work on the search engine optimisation in addition to building links. Just having inbound links is not enough. You have to optimise your website pages and the articles you write and publish on your site. If you don’t optimise your blog posts, highly optimised content of your competitors will outcompete yours. And this means that your articles can never be among the first 10 to 20 search results when people do a search using your article keywords or keyword phrases. Likewise, if you don’t properly optimise your webpages, it will be difficult for your website to rank high in the SERPs, and making money online will be difficult.
Age factor Vs making money online
As a tip, when you write articles for publication, make sure you optimise them. Also important is to have an optimised article resource box with your main website keywords. Use your website keywords as your anchor text in your article resource box. The anchor text is a clickable link to your site. The anchor text tells search engines how other people describe your website for a better ranking.
Thirdly, the age of your website matters a lot to search engines. Older websites are more valued by search engines than new sites. What this age factor means to you is that the energy you put in to build links and optimise your website may not reward you within a short time. But when you continue to create more inbound links and optimise your webpages and your articles, after a period of like one year, you begin to rank higher and consequently start to make money online.
As I wind up, I would like to remind you that online business is not a get-rich-quick business. Don’t be duped by those who promise you to make money within a week or a month. Things are never like that. The reasons I have shared with you are among the most determining factors in the success of your business. Start your online business, knowing that it takes time for most marketers to begin making money online.
