By being SEO conscious I mean employing strategies to ensure your blog attains online visibility to a reasonable extent; It could be by using keywords that have a high conversion rate etc.

There are few ways bloggers make money online; they are:

This is similar to the last point, only that instead of organizing online classes, you simply just publish a book and put it up for sale. I have friends that have used this means to make tons of cash for themselves. Before you make the move of writing the book, you have to be sure there is a market for it – don’t go writing on something irrelevant and expecting people to buy, you will be disappointed at the outcome. So, do your research and write something that is worth paying for.
