Many people wonder what exactly is a blog, and how can it help their business, if at all. This is a common question that people ask me as I make big money on the internet with blogs, but before you can make big money with blogs you must first understand what blogs are all about, because many people simply don't know.

The blog has been around for years, however just came into major popularity in the last three years. The weblog, or blog is simply a application that allows users to post written text that gets immediately posted to the web, like an online journal of sorts. The blog is something that is meant to be as easy to use as the word processor application on your computer. While most websites take hours to update, a blog can be updated in real time, as quick as one would save a file to a computer. This is partly what makes blogs magical.

Blogging is a great way to get information on the internet inexpensively with friendly results, such as high search engine ranking, and free advertising. The blog, with it's variety of keyword heavy posts allows people to make money off of the high return result on a search engine like Google. What this means is that if you are selling home security systems, and you create a blog about good deals on such systems, chances are people looking for a security system will come across your blog in the search engine. This added exposure will surly help more people notice your business, and make purchases, thus creating greater business for you.

Blogs are most commonly found on the internet via the World Wide Web, and can be published for free by some of the biggest names on the internet. The fact that the blog is free is the main reason why people can so easily profit from using them, because there is no real upfront investment with blogs, and thus there is only one way to go from zero dollars invested, and that's to profit.

Why Blogging is So Popular

Name one person that doesn't like to share his or her point of view, and you will have just named nobody at all. The point of the above exercise is to show the simple fact that everyone likes to talk about themselves, and what they are up to, even if they say that they do not like doing so. There is something about being human that makes us self involved to the point where we truly feel as if others want, or need to know what is going on with us. Blogs offer one a unique way to express his or her feelings on any number of issues, with a shield that only the internet can provide.

The most common use of a blog is that of a journal, or an opinionated piece of writing involving some aspect of the author's day to day life. While some blogs are totally commercially driven, they are often masked as personal musing in order to entice visitors. This is something that just can't be avoided, people love checking out other peoples blogs to see what's going on.

The internet can be a cold and bare place for people to be at times, and the blog helps create a sense of community with its powerful reach, and ease of use. Many people want to share, or keep up with others, but simply don't have time. Email has gotten to the point that people are overwhelmed just to deal with their regular inbox each day, nonetheless an email from an old friend, and thus checking someone's blog is commonplace nowadays. In fact, there are millions of blogs out there, and most of them are intended to be read by family and friends.

Blogging is popular because it relates to community, family, and friends, and therefore it is in direct relation with what matters most in life. Blogs can be a powerful tool to communicate to others, as well as to market with, as they are so friendly to search engines in terms of keywords, and ranking. Just making a few blog posts can literally get you noticed immediately, and is something that truly can help you become a big player in the internet business game.
