    Default Word Press - How to make money fast!

    Ok I have a big WP user, and my last few successful site I did were 100% wordpress. I find it easy to use, fast to set up. Here is my 30 second guide. If any interest on this method for the new guys or old hardened pros, I will be happy to elobarate.

    Now these methods will work on other free blog platforms, but the plugins to WP is where the real power is. Thismethod will not get you banned, is not blackhat at all, but is a little outside the box. My last blog I did was December, (before I came to work at affcorner) and makes me about 3k a month. (Between Google adsense, affilaite earnings etc) but most avergae about 400 per month. So 20 blogs times 400 is not bad money. I use this for any and all things, but being we on a gambling forum, we will focus on that, but you will get the ideas...

    1. Pick up a niche - Sounds like you heard this beat to death, but is true. So many great long tail keywords people just do not try for. Of course there is software to help you with this, but lets try this the free way.

    I use Google Keyword tool and also Yahoo answers for quick reserach. Just using google, try and find a term with nice serach volume, but google does not have over 50,000 results for. This is key so we can easily get a good ranking fast....I also try and find these terms, and determine a "problem" i cna solve. Example, "How can I find a quick tender casino?" Or "What online casinos take USA players?", etc etc. form there we get terms such as maybe "quicktender casino" (30,000 results this AM) so might be a good term to use.

    2. Ok so next we need a domain name. Choose something with this term in it. If we can find 5 - 10 other good terms related to these terms, use them. I prefer .com's but have no definative proof they hold more wieght for SEO rankings, but my perosnal opinion is they convert better.

    3. Hosting. Make sure hosts supports wordpress (most do today, but double check) If you need a suggestion, PM me. I am not here to push one host or another but have been turned off by a few for too much traffic...

    4. Ok so we set this baby up. If this is your first time, no worry...Is not as bad as it seems. First Pick a theme. so many free themese out there, look around. I suggest for you first time use a 2 column one ("elegant box" theme is nice starter one, and nicely done.)

    5. After themes is done we need to add some plugins. Here are some to get going:

    ------ Adsense Deluxe - Adsense ads management.
    ------ Akismet - Spam Fighting.
    ------ AskApache 404 - Best 404 error page, uses AJAX.
    ------ Auto Social Poster - Get traffic and backlinks from Social Bookmarking sites.
    ------ Google Sitemap Generator
    ------ HeadSpace2 - One of the best TWO SEO plugins + many other features
    ------ MaxBlogPress Ping Optimizer
    ------ Eli's PingCrawler - Automatically ping other blogs, when you post.
    ------ Platinum SEO - Another of the BEST TWO SEO plugins.
    ------ Redirection - Redirect your 404 pages, or redirect your posts to your affiliate sites/links.
    ------ SEO Automatic Links - Cross-links your blog posts (within a blog)
    ------ StatPress Reloaded - best Real-time Tracking plugin for your traffic
    ------ WP-affiliate - automatically create affiliate links inside your posts, or generate CB links for your keywords on-the-fly.
    ------ WP Database backup - This is MOST Important. If you lost your database, you are finished.
    ------ Yet Another Related Posts Plugin - boost your pageview, works with RSS too.

    Ok a coupel cost money, and at this second I think all above are free. If not let me knwo and I will post a freebie alternative. these are the "basic plugins.

    4. OK we need to set these up but then we need content. Not good at this? Who is? Well, we can get some article writing services, make a few articles, but want google to love our site ( My average sites get crawled every couple hours by Google)

    So we need a few more plugins to help us:
    1.WP-o-Matic- Fetch content from RSS Feeds
    3. Thumbnails for Excerpts
    4. Simple Tags
    5. Next Gen Gallery
    6. Duplicate Post Eraser ( Free, but PM me for it, hard to find I have heard)
    7. Different Posts Per Page


    Ok so now we can add some pictures, video, and content. This is what happens. RSS feeds are everywhere, but that is another topic. What Wp-o_matic does is grabs these feeds and psts them to your blog! We will maek sure we give credit to the site we grabbed these from by leaving the links and credits in place. I grab things live "las veags" gambling laws" etc, but nothing that would feed a competitors news, like "online casino bonus". Wp=O-Matoc might take you a few tries, but If anyone tries this or needs help, I can post a whole how to get started with this later. One thing, make sure you save links as "permalink"

    Now we might want to keep the top post in our blog from moving. The nice thing is in WP 2.7 there is a option for "sticky" so our forst post is always on top. Simply add you welcome page here. , and all the articles will go after that. Some might warn you about "duplicate content". I believ in my heart this is a myth. I have used this for a couple years and always leave the links to sources in, and never any issues..I only see isues where people STEAL content, present it as their own, and then get into issues. This requires complants etc, so we good, no worry..

    Ok we now have a blog, content, fresh content, we nadd our advertising, confugred the plugins. I would guess first time setup will take you 3- 5 days if you never done this before, but after first one, next one will take hours...serious

    Ill skipover all these widgit pluign setups as I think is important to learn as yu go, but if you have questions ask me, Ill direct you...I can do a step by step manual, but I think this more as a guide to get you going, and you will pick this up fast...again first one will take longest

    Ok now we need to promote it

    Creat the stiemap, login to gogle submit it. This plugin will auto update and submit after first time so good there...

    I also add a translation plugin, and this creats all entries in a bunch of languages, and creates a lot of static content.

    Ok next set up a couple onlywire accounts for social bookmarking, and the plugins take over form there..

    next update the ping list in wordpress, ( google wordpress ping list)

    Add our own rss feed to feedburner etc ( my list is about 40 rss submission sites)

    Next look for blog rating sites (like globofblogs.com) add it to 5 - 10 of them ( great links will be coming)

    Then manauly one time

    Submit your site to Digg.com
    Submit your site to IndianPad.com
    Submit your site to Mixx.com
    Submit your site to Reddit.com

    Next lets right an article or 2 about our keywords andmake them informative not sales pitchs. submot them them in top 5 - 10 article sites ( again Pm me if you need a list)

    So have a few links going to be going soon, throughthe bookmarking, articles, and rss ( you will be shocked) and hopefulle we know some basic SEO so the pages below have the "nofollow" tag where needed....

    Now here is fun part..

    next week or 2, you will see your pages in google then removed back and forth. You are going to be like "SANDBOX!!" wrong! Any new site google takes a bot for the pages to stay..do not work, keep building links and let Wp work...check your onlywire account keep those book marks going. I average 300 new posts a week in a new blog, and with tags, permalinks etc, this could be 2000 pagesor so Google sees. Now the site will be seen as authurtive, and we have other terms we can be found for...

    After 2 weeks, we should see some links coming in. I also do some things such as posts in related forums, 30 - 50 posts (good posts) and put link in my signature.

    Also, now create a few free blogs, with 3 - 5 entries each one with a link to your main, or you can create some mine nets or link wheels. I am a big proppnent of graph theory when it comes to designing them, but see my mini net post to go into that. But yes, link strats HUGE

    (SIDENOTE: when creating you own "link farms" or "mini nets", and long time SEO process, some will consider this blackhat. I disagree, but in SEO, the blackhat and whitehat lines get crossed. I mean all seo is about pushing your main key terms so where do you draw the line?)

    Mostof these long keywords you can rank in a week or 2 tops. Whne youget going, you will see some terms you reach top 3 in a couple days!!

    Wait there is more

    After we get maybe 10 - 20 good blogs going we ranking well with, you get some some pr, thne you can start to go after better keywords, by passing that link juice...but thats another thread...


    Ok well, This method 100% works, but takes time, but very little cash ( is a hard world out there i know). I have over 450 blog out there today making money for me every day. Some average 20 - 50 bucks a month, others ine the thousands. I say average is 400 bucks per month. Now after these get up, nice thing is you can let them run....not a lot of maintenance.

    Good luck!

    Going to have to re-read this a few times. Great info there Jack, I am sure I'll have some questions after I re-read this 3 times. Are you saying you have 450 seperate blogs or is that 450 blog posts? I can't imagine having the fortitude to manage that many, I struggle with 5 websites and 4 blogs (I think).

    Thanks so much for this mate. I have used wordpress in the past and was thinking about getting it up on a current site of mine now but have never really gone too much into using the plugins. Will definitely give it a go when I have time though.. Will let you know the results

    Cheers

    450 blogs, of course some it it manged/ outsourced at this size..

    each one has at least 100 new entries per week...

    here is a quickie one as an example...check links to it, pages in google etc...is 2 weeks old (non casino sports, but is a quickie example, not 100%

    nakedcookie.simplybestonlineproducts.com

    Checkin yahoo and google...not huge traffic yet but not optimized for any keywords just a concept so it makes sense. Im asking a couple affiliates of mine if i can share theirs next

    EDIT: If you all want, we can do this step by step, a part per day, and i can give much more detail...

    Thank you very much for the great advices. I'm new to gambling affiliate, you have mentioned here about the Adsense Deluxe - Adsense ads management, I've heard, placing adsense in a gambling blog violates the adsense TOS. Is it true?

    I think so too. Google Adsense doesn'st allow gambling related sites for their service but I got stumble on this one casino blog who has Adsense and almost all of the generated google ads are for casinos. I doubt Google now.

    450 blogs x 400 dollars average per blog = 180 000 / month. Basically you're saying that you make over two million dollars in one year with autoblogs - I don't want to be rude or anything like that, but I find it very hard to believe.

    Yes and I consider this, if not blackhat, at least greyhat. However, there's a lot useful information in your post, so I'm going to use your ideas in a different form when building new sites.

    Not all autoblogs, but yes..I guess I should have thought that out more, but you close.....I didnt mean to come off trying to brag, I was just trying to share what worls for me. I had others make 50 a month per blog...all depends what you do and how current you stay with trends. of the 450, over half make me at least 400 a month, so I do ok, and Just trying to help others. again i apologize if it came off like me being a jerk off...

    The "light" you speak of Paul is simply an oncoming TRAIN.

    I have a(nother) new site to do and will try these tips. Will post up how it goes. Now then... where did I leave those No-Doze???

    Jack you didn't come off like that at all. This is great information.

    To me you are coming of as generous. Here's why.. You shared how you are making money online.. that's awesome.. thanks for sharing. I am certainly going to look into it.

    From a SEO point of view, I see that each of your posts aas a whole are unique due to the amount of extra features (twitter and language). Awesome.

    No, don't get me wrong here. It is just amazing that someone has found such great way to make money - your post is definately very valuable and worth a lot.

    There is just too much people who post to Wickedfire / BlackHatWorld / any other IM forums stating that they make $5000 / day, but at the end of the day, all they have is 6 niche blogs written by indians (plus too much time). That's why I wanted to "challenge" you, if you know what I mean.

    Still I would not suggest anyone to follow casinojack's strategy. It might be good for him, but everyone has to find a way for himself to make money online. Just pick the parts of his strategy you find great and mix them with your own ideas

    PS. WagerX, scraping content from multiple resources instead of one isn't going to make your content unique. Translation might do it, but I don't guarantee conversions if your site is automatically translated!

    Yes 100% correct...It tok me about 15 - 20 tries to get going well...I have alot more pieces of software I use not mentioned here that help a great deal, and do not mind some "black hat" methods, as I think hard to define...


    Also, 1- sites even, I do not see 5k a day unless you have agreat niche and good links, etc etc

    PS now my part where everyone debates me BUT, google and unique content is a myth.

    PPS: Average site does 10 - 20 bucks a day, I am too lazy to get them more so I just made more sites...faster for me...

    Great post mate.

    I've used Wordpress for a while now. I originally used the hosted service and got great traffic for about a year, but then they noticed me and closed me down coz it was an 'affiliate' site. I then set up my own WP site at http://www.selectabet.net

    I'm going to try to incorporate some of your ideas that I'm not already doing.

    I'd encourage anyone to take a serious look at WP. I'm completely non-techie and was able to set up my site and run it. I'm now looking for alternative niches.

    Thanks for taking a look Jack.

    Not sure what you mean about inbound links. I've no real strategy to be honest, just tried to trade links here and there.

    I tried the no follow plugin for about 3-4 months but it had no effect whatsoever and since people starting paying me for having links on the site they requested that I remove it. Any suggestions? My PR has been stuck at 1 forever.

    I've now installed seo quake (Couldn't do everprofits as I'm on a mac) so I'l try to get to grips with that. It says my PR is n/a - am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks again for the advice.

    Can you let us know some URLs of your other blogs?
