Where To Get Backlinks? | Day 1

Journey To Make Money Online - Building Backlinks

Since this blog is going to be optimized for the keywords make money online, then backlinks play important role as this is a very competitive market. I am going to aim for at least 5 backlinks a day and I am going to list them down. If the process continues for 3 months, I should have about 450 backlinks. We will see where it will lead this blog to. Am I going to be in front page? Or am I not? Not sure about it, but it must be done somehow.

Before I continue with the list, I should express my doubts on a few things which bothers me through my journey to make money online. Yes, it is about backlink. First of all, does submitting rss feed to other directories increase backlinks? If it does, I should have easily get tons of backlinks just by using rss submitting program.

Secondly, it is about article submission. I do know that submitting articles is one of the method to get good ranking. However, if the focus is just on one directory, say GoArticles, will it be alright? Because if thats the case, a lot of backlinks will be generated from the same site. So, is the backlinks useful in this case? Will it be counted as 1 or as many as the articles we submit? Perhaps, submitting articles has different point or purpose in the process of ranking high. I will clairify all these later on. In the mean time, the process to make money online should continue, starting with building backlinks from now on.

Day 1 links:
  1. blogcatalog.com
  2. squidoo.com
  3. hubpages.com
  4. kaboodle.com
  5. forums.digitalpoint.com
  6. v7n.com/forums
Well, it is easy to know where to get the backlinks when you have so many competitors. Search for the keyword you targeted and select the top 3 sites. Then check their backlink either using yahoo site explorer or alexa. Isn't it fun to make money online. But of course it is only fun when it is moving upwards, else...it's gonna drive me nuts.

Smooth Journey To Make Money Online? No..

For a beginner like me to make money online, it is definitely a very rough journey I can say. Just as I was getting too bored with all this (I am not giving up, just taking a break), like any other beginners, I looked for shortcuts to make my journey to make money onlline shorter. Started to look for black hat's method of doing things and other alternatives.

Before I continue my post, let me just update on my Ultimate SuperTip progress. It has been two weeks since I first started this program. It was the first program which made me some money for this two weeks of journey. Now, I have submitted two articles and countless post in forums, and the return is $80. Well, not too bad I guess. The thing is most of the forums removed my posts after a short while. Too bad. Anyway, the fact is, I do make some money online and it is not from adsense or search engine traffic. If I can have 10 of these programs, I could have made $800 in two weeks time. LOL... I thought of it for a while and that was when I decided to look for other alternatives to continue my journey to make money online. Who says it has to be adsense? I can venture into adults oriented program which I believed is much more easier and convenient. No.. not really.

It took me three good hours to realize that I need to stick to what I have been doing. In fact there are so many things that one can actually do to make money online. Each time I read about a new idea on how to make my online journey to make money, I got so pissed. A lot lead you to no where. Many claim that it is easy and fast, but the actual fact is, it's fast, but not solid. I don't even bother to explain what I actually learn from this few good hours of reading. All I can say is, I learnt that what I am doing now is the best and I should stick with it. Yes, lots of work, but nothing last longer than this.

Stop looking around and put all my focus on my current journey to make money online. Let me remind myself and all the beginners who choose to blogs all the way to make real big money online with adsense about 2 things. Things to be accomplished before anyone can make money online.
  1. Remember! It is search engine traffic that we are looking for.
  2. Backlinks are important. Build at least 2 a day.
  3. Articles submission
  4. Remember, everything we do is to get search engine traffic.
I am currently using digiXMAS Submitter to submit articles and I am not sure how much this will help as it sends similar article to every directories. Anyway, this is the first tools which actually ease my tedious job of submitting articles. Finally, manage to get some free program to make my journey to make money online easier, at least a little.

Apart from this, I also use RSS submit. It is great, but again, not really sure on how will it impact my online journey to make money. Well, I think it should do some good in a long run.

Alright, I am feeling guilty right now. I must confess that this post is actually just for the sake of posting and I have nothing much to share about how to make money online or even my journey. My journey to make money online seems to be just slow. But I definitely wish I could share something with everyone but what I have been doing to support my journey is basically submitting articles and creating backlinks. Yes, that is not new. But that is the only thing I do. Damn.. Making money online is hard.. To share how and what we do to make money online is even harder.

Again if there is anyone who read this post, I hope you don't get mad with me as I am just a beginner who is trying to make a living online. Or maybe just some extra income online. The journey continues and hope to be able to share things which is much more meaning ful than this. Now before I sign off, I am going to fit in the sentence "journey to make money online" one last time - done.

Make Money Online - Update 3

It has been 18 days since i started my journey to make money online. 4 days since my last post. What is my latest achievement. No. I haven't make any money in these 4 days time. Now, if you have been following Grizzly's blog, Make Money Online For Beginners, you probably noticed that he started a new blog about Make Money With Adsense. Why do I mention it here? Apart from giving him a link for his generosity in sharing his knowledge, I think it is worth mentioning because he managed to get his new site to be listed in G with very high ranking. To make things even more interesting, he selected a competitive niche, and he reached there in just 6 days.

Now, how long has it been since I first started this Make Money Online posting? It has been two weeks, yet I am not even near to first 10 pages of G search result for any Make Money Online keywords. I am targeting keywords like journey to make money online, and I have yet to make it to the top even with such a long keyword. Really what is going wrong? Ok. It has to be down to these few.

  1. Because Grizzly has a lot of supporters who are giving him links.
  2. Grizzly has a top 3 Make Money Online blog.
  3. He is really sharing good advice and knowledge on how to make money online and also make money with adsense.
  4. He is good in keywords.
Well, other than this, I don't really know what else is contributing towards his achievement. But for that few points, I believe it is sufficient to prove why I am far behind for what I am doing, make money online to be precise. Grizzy having supporters and loyal readers is not just by luck. I do strongly believe that he did put in tremendous amout of effort into this make money online blog. So, he actually earned the loyalty and supporters. Unlike me, I have nothing really solid to offer yet. It is then clear, I don't have the privillege to get fast backlinks from supporters like he did. Again, he build it and earn it.

The second thing, his make money online sites, is giving him a great promotion on his new make money with Adsense blog. As a conclusion of these two factors, he couldn't have make it this fast without the previous achievement? So do you call this luck? NO! Of course not! It is easier to make money online with anything if you already have something which is already established. However, the task here is to build the first authority site which will give you that muhc of credits. Now that is not a day or two process nor it is a month or two. Grizzly took 2 years and damn right he deserves what he has achieved now. So for anyone who thinks that he did it just by luck or he has the extra advantage over anyone else, then stop and think again, he actually earn it. Now that is what we all should be doing. Earn it like him and the rest of the journey will be much more convenient.

As for me, what is it that I am going to do now? Ok, to be honest after two weeks, I am still a bit lost. Of course, I do know that what I need to do if I want to make money online, such as submitting articles, creating backlinks, keep on posting and basically that's about it. See, it is so simple. I can describe what i need to do to make money online in a sentence. However, it takes a lot of time and effort to sumit countless articles. Furthermore, it has to be unique articles. Such a tedious work. I repeatedly tell myseld that I need to make money online and through this I keep myself going. Then when we talk about submitting articles, there are simply too many directories. For every articles, I have to have two different writing pattern. All that is just for 1 blog. Imagine if i have 100. What is the amount of work I am going to get. Damn, make money online is tiring. Still, there must be an easier way to achieve that, and it is just a matter of time before I learn how to reduce the workload and increase efficiency. Right now I will just focus on three blogs and I plan to make it to the top of search engine with certain keywords before I proceed to create new sites.

Then, I mentioned about Grizzly's knowledge which actually brought him so many friends and supporters. Now again, I am comparing myself and him. If it is about backlinks and articles sumission, I can definitely do the same. But if it is about sharing knowlegde to make money online, what can I do? Nothing of what I have learnt is not from the internet. Plus, to make it worse, I do not possess any track record on my make money online projects and income. Simply means, I am nobody in the world of "make money online". I make much more money offline compared to online. But, but but... I am putting in so much of the keyword into every post with the hope that all these keywords will help me someday. Not sure when, maybe the time when I really make money online. Well, I guess for keywords wise, I have done enough. I hope so. Up to now, I already mentioned make money online for 23 times ..oh it is 24 inclusive of the one I just mentioned. Would like to know whether the way I am fitting in all the make money online keywords is correct or not. I understand from Griz that up to about 7 keywords in every 100 words are allowed. Based on calculation, I should be safe. But is there any hidden strategies? I see some people who don't use much keyword but still rank high for that. What's up with that.

Since there no one who is going to read this, I will now rip off one of Grizlly posts. Why? Because like many out there, I can't come up with something solid to tell everyone how to make money online and now I am going to take a shortcut, which is ripping off. LOL.. nah.. I am just kidding. I am not going to do that. I am going to make money online the manly way.

Make Money Online - Update 2

I have been excited over the making money online process for about 2 weeks now. Like anyone of you can guess, I am not doing well....yet. Hence, I have to conclude that, to make money online is indeed extremely hard even with guidelines. It is hard, not because of the work load, or the tremendous effort that we need to put in. But rather, it is because it need patience and lots of patience. Plus, determination of course.

So, since I have the patience and determination, I am definitely going to make money online. This is quite a bold statement for a man who just started the journey to make money online. Hahaha... actually there are not many people who will actually read this. Maybe no one at all. Why? Because..like Grizzly said, social traffic wont bring you money. I am not even promoting this journey to make money online site to any friend. Rather, I am working towards making money online through good ranking in search engine. For this site, even though I am targeting the keyword make money online, but I do not teach anyone how to make money. Despite saying that this is my journey, yet I am honestly trying to make site top the list for the search of make money online. That is why you won't see any adsense or anything else until it is actually listed with good ranking in the first page. Not sure on how long it will take, but someday it should reach.

Alright, enough of crap. Let me continue with my progress to make money online. For the past two days, I have been looking for new topics to be written. Good thing is, found a number of high CPC keywords with low competition as well! Isn't that great? The only problem is, I have no idea what to write for certain topic such as.. well I will just share a few with everyone.
  • training interior design (16100 competitor)
  • interior design classes (14000 competitor)
  • project tracking system (25400 competitor)
  • solar traning (23000 competitor)
  • so on and so forth
These are just few example of keywords that can be used to make money online as the CPC range from $5~$7. There are a decent number of average search as well. I am not sure whether I was doing the search correctly or not, and perhaps if you happen to see this, please let me know. Anyway, if I was right about the keywords, then all these keywords can be used to make money online. There are a lot more which pay even higher, and it will need some time to be discovered. I have about 20 topics with the high pay keywords and to think that I am going to write on that freaking many topics to make money online, I actually got a bit worry whether I am able to maintain all of them.

But it has to start somewhere, so I will start writing on another topic tomorrow and will probably spend quite some time to create backlinks and also submitting articles. Man, isn't it tough to make money online? I hope I am able to get it indexed sooner than the previous one. If it takes too long, wonder how long am I going to complete 100 sites? Arrghh... it is so bloody hard to make money online! But.. the journey should be fun and inspiring.

So that's it for now. I know no one will be reading, but...if you happen to be my only reader...a million thanks!

Check out for my new updates to make money online soon.

Make Money Online - Update 1

Things to do to make money online
It has been days since I started this blg. I have been following everything I read from Grizzly's post about blogging for money. What exactly have I done to make money online for the past few days?

Basically, I have been submitting articles to directories. Mainly GoArticles. The reason why I favor this directory is because my articles got listed faster compared to other directories. Most of the time, it takes less than a day. I submitted 5 articles. 5 unique articles. 2 on make money online and the rest are on other topics of my other blogs.

Now, if you notice, the phrase make money online does come up quite often in all my post. The reason I am doing this is.. yes.. I am optimizing this site for the keyword make money online. I know it's going to take very long time before I see any encouraging result, but I am willing to wait and see how far I can go with this. Of course I do hope to be listed in the front page of G with the search keyword of make money online.

I really don't mind waiting for very long time because this make money online is a very competitive keyword. But the problem is, this make money online blog is not even indexed yet. It has been more than a week. I have submitted two money making articles to directories. I also claimed this in Technorati and yet nothing happen. I still wonder why. But I am not giving up. Maybe it is the sandbox effect from my earlier penalty? What I can do now is continue submitting make money online articles and also regular posting. Hope it will really help. If anyone at all know what is going on, please do let me know.

Apart from this, I am still researching on niche keyword. I know now that to make money online I will be needing a lot of niche topics to be posted. I have downloaded keyword explorer which actually help a lot in researching the niche keywords. Together with G keywords tool, I manage to get a few good pay keywords which I can soon write about it. All of these really take very long time and extra determination.

As for the Ultimate SuperTip, I submitted another article to a directory and hope it really grow from there. This is still my only program which helps me to make money online. However, I am not going to put all my effort on this program because I really want to get Adcense to work for me. I strongly believe that adcense is one of the tool which can really help to make money online.

A summary of what I have done to continue my project to Make Money Online:

1) New post
2) New topic
3) Regular posting
4) Article submission
5) Optimization of keywords

That's about it. Look out for next post where I will update my progress and activity to make money online.
