I don’t know Steve Pavlina personally but he’s got a good reputation and this article grabs your attention for sure!
Extract: “StevePavlina.com was launched on Oct 1st, 2004. By April 2005 it was averaging $4.12/day in income. Now it brings in over $200/day $1000/day (updated as of 10/29/06). I didn’t spend a dime on marketing or promotion. In fact, I started this site with just $9 to register the domain name, and everything was bootstrapped from there. Would you like to know how I did it?”
Yes, Steve, I would, so I’ll be coming back to read this blog posting.

Interesting site and not one I’ve come across before. Seems to be a genuine blog but I find the Google Adsense right in your face like that, a bit distracting. Some top tips on there though and some posts are divided up into beginner, intermediate and advanced which I thought was a good idea. If it’s a junk site, it’s quite well done. Not getting my traffic though.
6. MoneyBlog Make money OnLine
Make Money Online – How to Make Money Online and Work at Home by Internet Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Affiliate Programs, …
JUNK SITE ALERT: Strange URL, looks ok on first arrival, but a “junk site” actually. Junk sites are those set up to scrape content from other sites, and make money from selling affiliate products and adsense. You can tell because the posts don’t make sense and there is no discernable personality behind the site. Ultimately Google will drop it down the rankings. I’m not sending that traffic or links for sure!
7. Money Blog
How To Make Money, Making Money Online, Investing, Saving, Money Managers – MoneyBlog.com.
JUNK SITE ALERT: Another junky site, with no personality behind it, but they do take articles and comments from other bloggers. Despite it’s high ranking on my search today, it’s only got a 2/10 page rank. How long it will be there I’ve no idea, as most of the content presumably isn’t original.
I used to have one and then I decided to close it and invested the money in a retirement plan that doubles as an insurance policy. I consider that money …
JUNK SITE ALERT: Hmmmm, not sure about this one. It’s written in the first person, but there is no about page, no photo, and it’s a WordPress blog that has not been configured properly as it’s still got all the setup gubbins on the side. However, the articles seem quite well written, and useful, so if it is scraping content, it’s using a good programme to do it.
9. Money Blog Site – The Personal Finance Blog You Can Invest In
By Money Blog. I just mentioned I was going to convert my Dad’s site to use ….. Money Blog Site is powered by WordPress | Using Tiga theme with a bit of Ozh.
JUNK SITE ALERT: Seems to be set up by a real person, with a view to selling it on. He wants $750 for the domain name but the site needs some work as the template is all over the shop. Another junk site really.
10. Make money – Make money online
Started this money blog because being an Economist I can blog for money,blog about money,blog money! Blogging for money is something we like a lot. …
JUNK SITE ALERT: Nice domain name, another rubbish site sadly. Template all over the shop, completely devoid of personality.
Nicola’s Conclusion: On the key phrase “money blog” you have a great opportunity to come in and seize Google placement right there on the front page.
Important note: The top 4 “money blog” orientated sites are by real people, delivering value and as such, they have earned some traffic from me.
Tips: Choose a domain name with the words “money blog” included in it, put a picture up and something about yourself, configure your blog properly, inject some personality, use quality articles and blog regularly and in three months time, you could see your moneyg blog right up there.
I went through the first ten pages of Google and the Money Gym Blog is nowhere to be seen but I’m cool with that, as it’s not one of the phrases I’ve ever concentrated on, and I know that Google is still indexing our 1000+ postings, after we moved it to WordPress.
Every day I get a Google Alert that they have indexed a few more pages or old postings, and our Page Rank has just been upped to 3/10 (we had a 4/10 ranking over at Typepad).
Patience and consistency will get us there.
Blogging is like property, a long term investment.
