Welcome to the first part of the “Top Internet Marketing Blogs” series, a series in which I’ll be sharing with you blogs I read that have allowed me to flourish and see real results make money online. Each of the blogs I mention have allowed me to learn new skills and given me the mentality needed to make money online. So without further ado, here’s your reading for the week.

But in my experience blogging is over looked by most internet marketers, and online business owners as well for that matter, because they have to ‘work’ at producing quality and reader relevant content on a regular basis. How do I know read and learn are overlooked? Easy… The internet marketing students and online business owners I regularly coach never discuss blogging! Sure they’ll talk all day about PPC, Google slap, SEO… but never blogging.

Let me share to you some of my ideas in making blogs useful in list building business. This might help know how to create powerful blogs that would translate to expand your list.

Your online blogs should have an optimum keyword density that catches the eye of a search engine to get it noticed. Besides, they should have a visual appeal, latest and burning topics. Make your blog interesting and appealing for the visitors so that they can keep coming back to you for more.

Do some e-books – Not all bloggers have tried this, but it worked for some. Famous bloggers have started to put their informative blogs in an e-book which they sell online.

OMake your blog visually exciting. Choose an attractive background colour and provide photos or images. Consider sound. Develop your blog as you would a web site, with the same visual appeal. Some bloggers even add video and sound to their blogs. There is no need to spend many hours composing art works, but know that simple text on a white background may simply not draw as many readers as you like.

Yes, making money online blogs started off with almost nothing in the beginning and leverage their earnings from multiple streams of income. Its not easy to tell what are these streams of income but you should reverse engineer each successful blogger to discover more truths.
