How to create your own blog on the Internet and profit from Google Adsense



 What is blogging?


Blogging is a profitable source of revenue and blogs can be created and maintained easily. Imagine a life where you are paid to write on the things that matter to you, whenever you want and wherever you are. The sheer flexibility of blogging makes it easy for you to relax, unwind, and go on vacation whenever you want.


To get a blog. There are many options - host a blog on your own domain or get a free blog. For starters, let's talk about free blogging. You can have a free blog at www.blogger.com or the newer (and better!) www.wordpress.com. If you are technical, you must have heard of Wordpress, a free blog engine that is powerful and infinitely expandable.


 

Logger and WordPress Overview


Blogger.com is already owned by Google, so it will be detected on Google's radar faster and will be indexed faster. However, Wordpress.com is a relatively new option, so I don't have a comparison to the speed of indexing by search engines. However, Wordpress is better in that it has more advanced features like Trackbacks and Categories. You can also manage your sidebar links more efficiently (more on this later).


Create a free blog


Get a free blog on either Blogger.com (blogger) or Wordpress (wordpress/). Next, publish your first post on your blog and edit options and templates.


Some blogging terms


  • Permalink - Permalink stands for Permalink, which is a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) that leads to an individual post that you create on your blog.
  • Commenting - When you post about someone else's blog post elsewhere, your post will appear in their Comment section. However, this feature is not available with a Blogger.com account.
  • Pinging - Blogging seems to be associated with ping almost every time either is mentioned nowadays. Pinging is actually the procedure in which a particular aggregator is notified whenever your blog is updated, so that the aggregator can display your most recent blog post on their website. This is a useful way to gain traffic,
