How the eHow Blog Carnival Works

Making money with web content relies on two major factors:

1. Proper use of keywords and SEO to ensure people find your content.

2.The page rank or authority search engines give your content which can be improved with back links.

SEO will only take content so far which is why people try to boost page rank and authority with back links. Search engines view back links as 'votes of confidence' and figure that content with more back links is probably better than content without bank links.

Many people write entirely new content and post it on article directories or other ad revenue sharing sites to generate back links, but this takes time and requires extra work that is sometimes uncompensated. Plus, there are only so many places to write content for and only so many times you can re-work content for a topic.

The benefit of a blog carnival is that it's a quick, painless way to build back links and improve your content's rank in the search engines. Here's how you can participate.

1. You provide a link to the carnival host of eHow content you wish to promote. This takes about 5 minutes (or less) to do. You can submit a new link every time or a different link for each blog carnival depending on how many back links you wish to create.

2. The host posts your link on their website which creates a back link. A blog carnival post takes about 15 to 20 minutes to do.

The format we will use for carnival posts is either:

Name of Blog link has an article on How To eHow link. (In the event a blog link is made available.)


Here's an interesting article on how to ehow link. (When there is no blog link to include.)

3. Everyone takes turns being a host which means you need to have a blog or website (it takes just a few minutes to get started with Blogger).

Our first carnival will be next week and will be hosted here. Submissions are due by midnight Sunday 12/13. Email me at netwriterm AT g-m-a-i-l DOT com with the link you wish to promote.

By providing a link you agree to serve as blog carnival host on one of your blogs/websites in the near future.
