How blogs can make money

Here's an interesting article I came across in Wired, about a journalist who makes his money by writing online about the online media business. Rafat Ali reckons that his blog, Paid Content, will generate between $60-80,000 this year. It may be over 6 months' old but it is still worth a read:

Blogging Survey Results

Just came across some interesting survey results on blogs from the Blog Search Engine. Of the 610 correspondents, 28.9% said they updated their blog once a day and only 13.84% ran adversting on their site. For more results go to Blogging Results Survey.

Marketing Tom update

Have just checked the site and Google has given Marketing Tom its first Page Rank - 3/10. Though, it's not as high as I would like, it has been a great month on the internet marketing front. Going back a month and the site wasn't even listed on Google, now it is regularly cached (Google does like it when I add new articles) and 35 pages have already been listed on Google. The site also has 12 inbound links and other search engines are picking the site up, too.


Marketing Tom gets 36 pages listed on Google

36 pages of this blog have now been picked up by Google. Having finally been picked up on the 10th November, this is great news, indeed. If you would like the full list of pages, type this into the Google search box: site:www.marketingtom.com inurl:www.marketingtom.com. I recently added a short navigation bar on this site, which puts a 'Home' link on every page, and have started to actively 'put the name about' on a number of Blogs (see previous entry). These may well have had an effect. Let's just hope Google indexes them all soon.


Marketing Tom has finally been picked up by Google – party time!!

After over a month, Marketing Tom has finally been picked up by the Google Search Engine. By the looks of things Google listed the site on the 8th November and again on the 9th - maybe it's feeling guilty for not coming by before!! In addition, one of the sub-pages has been picked up by Hotbot. Let's hope they will pick up more pages over the coming month.
