Written by Van Whitsett

Continued from page 1

Some people have found out that blogs can also be used to sell products. In fact, an entire industry has evolved around commerical blogging and ways to market them. Some of these commerical blogs appear inrepparttar same journal style asrepparttar 147035 most popular blogs, while others do not look any different from a regular commerical website.

At any rate, I decided to check them out. The fact that a number of blog publishers allow you to build and post your comments for free, certainly didn't hurt either.

I studied many ofrepparttar 147036 blogs that are out there onrepparttar 147037 Internet, particuallyrepparttar 147038 ones relating to my niche. The more I read,repparttar 147039 more I liked. I was surprised to learn that some ofrepparttar 147040 top websites in my niche were actually blogs. They ranked high on Google and all ofrepparttar 147041 other search engines. And no doupt, they were making sales.

Soon, I had a pretty good idea about how I was going to build my blog. I didn't want to copyrepparttar 147042 others, I just needed to get an idea of how some enterprising webmasters were creating them.

Within minutes, I had created my blog, published it onrepparttar 147043 Web, and began posting and tweaking it. I inserted some HTML code to monitor my stats, and continued to work on making it a better blog. I also continued to work on my other websites, so that whenever I do climb out of Google's sandbox, my site will get a good rating.

Not long afterwards, I made my first blog sale!

Elated, I built other blogs. The more lines you have inrepparttar 147044 water,repparttar 147045 better chance you'll catch a fish, right? Each was slightly different thanrepparttar 147046 preceeding one, but I still hawkedrepparttar 147047 same products. All have links back to my "main" website, and all have brought me sales.

I might have been down, but thanks to my new-found knowledge about blogs, I wasn't out.

So, while I'm waiting to climb out of Google's sandbox, I have an ace inrepparttar 147048 hole and another up my sleeve that is continuing to make sales for me - my blog. Unknowingly, I had stumbled upon one ofrepparttar 147049 best ways to get my products out there beforerepparttar 147050 buying public.

What I had thought wasrepparttar 147051 worse thing to happen turned out to berepparttar 147052 best thing. Had Google not sandboxed me, I probably never would have discoveredrepparttar 147053 awesome marketing power of blogs!
