People take to blogging the moment they hear about one of those thousands of success stories of ordinary people becoming millionaires on the internet just by blogging. Most of these people have very little or, no knowledge about blogging and their blogs become a disaster.
Even more disappointing is the fact that there are thousands of blogs out there on the internet which do well in terms of their search engine rankings and pageranks. But these blogs offer little or, no reader experience.
What could be the problem with these blogs?
The problem is that they are not reader-optimized.
What is Reader Optimization?
This is what I call “reader optimization” -
A blog that is optimized to provide the reader a smooth navigation through its pages giving them a systematic flow of information through the content is one that can be called “reader optimized”.
It is extremely important that your blogs maintains a systematic flow of information. You would come across a lot of blogs that has a lot of information in it, but you are left clueless as to where to go and how to go to the information that you are looking for.
I am of the opinion that if you have to click more than thrice to reach a point where you actually wanted to reach, then the blog is not reader optimized.

One aspect that I have seen most of the Internet Marketers ignore is list building. We, internet marketers are so much engrossed into money-making that that we often forget simple things like building a list.
When I started with Internet Marketing, I too had not idea of list building. My way was simple. I would create an ad for the product I was promoting and I would send all the traffic from these ads to the vendors’ website, the product that I was promoting. I was spending a good amount of money in these ads. My earnings were not enough to meet my expenses. All the while as I did this, I was building the list for the vendor.

Shoemoney.com is one of my favorite blogs. Not because it gives me a lot of information or, that there are a lot of articles on blogging or, internet marketing, but because I am inspired by Jeremy. Everything on his blog is of inspiration to me. I get the stimuli to make it as big as Shoemoney one day when I read his blog.
But off and on, I have seen quite a few posts at shoemoney, which kind of shook me to the core. I couldn’t quite agree with what Jeremy had written in his post.
One such post that he wrote some time back was this one.
It was a response to a commentator who had challenged Shoe ...
Are you optimally monetizing your blogs or, website?
If you are not using an in-text advertising in your blog, then you are not optimally monetizing it.
Why is it that I have boldened the word “Optimally”?
Most of the blogs are monetized because that is the primary objective behind every blog. While monetization is important it is also important that you maintain the user experience and do not destroy it. This leads us to the point that obtrusion in the form of pop-ups and other banners should be kept to the minimum.
While most of the blogs manage to do this they loose out on valuable revenue that they could otherwise be earning.
There is definitely a solution to it – ...
