Small blog, large payoff

All right, it’s official: a blog can definitely increase search engine ratings and even offer direct revenue. I started this blog last month, and this is only my 10th post. I have not done much to publicize my blog except for adding my URL to Google, Yahoo, and a couple of blog directories. I also added a link to my blog from a couple of Wikipedia pages. After less than a month, my site ranks top 10 in several search engines for keywords specific to my blog posts.

That makes me wonder — can businesses advertise for free using Web 2.0 technologies? I truly believe the answer is yes! Blogs, video sites, social networking sites and other similar technologies can help companies rank higher in search engines, increasing their customer base. Additionally, advertising programs from major Internet companies can allow bloggers to make money. And as blogs grow, revenue increases. Thus, companies have two good reasons to get on board with Web 2.0: free money and free advertising!
