2.2: How To Build Content Rich Websites?
I know the notion of creating your very own content-rich website might be a little intimidating, but you can do it. It’s not hard. You don’t have to be a good writer to have good content on your site. In fact, you don’t have to be a writer at all. There are plenty of successful people who make a lot of money from Google AdSense and they don’t write a word of that content. We’ll talk more about that later, but you can hire writers, or have guest writers—it’s not hard.
Anyone can create a content-rich Website by following a few key points:
• Have some discipline—maintain your site.
• Update that site often. Having a schedule is best.
• Be able to beg, borrow, or commission content
The #1 Biggest Mistake That People Make With Adsense By Joel Comm It's very easy to make a lot of money with AdSense. I know it's easy because in a short space of time, I've managed to turn the sort of AdSense revenues that wouldn't keep me in candy into the kind of income that pays the mortgage on a large suburban house, makes the payments on a family car and does a whole lot more besides.
But that doesn't mean there aren't any number of mistakes that you can make when trying to increase your AdSense income - and any one of those mistakes can keep you earning candy money instead of earning the sort of cash that can pay for your home.
There is one mistake though that will totally destroy your chances of earning a decent AdSense income before you've even started.
That mistake is making your ad look like an ad.
No one wants to click on an ad. Your users don't come to your site looking for advertisements. They come looking for content and their first instinct is to ignore everything else. And they've grown better and better at doing just that. Today's Internet users know exactly what a banner ad looks like. They know what it means, where to expect it - and they know exactly how to ignore it. In fact most Internet users don't even see the banners at the top of the Web pages they're reading or the skyscrapers running up the side.
But when you first open an AdSense account, the format and layout of the ads you receive will have been designed to look just like ads. That's the default setting for AdSense - and that's the setting that you have to work hard to change.
That's where AdSense gets interesting. There are dozens of different strategies that smart AdSense account holders can use to stop their ads looking like ads - and make them look attractive to users. They include choosing the right formats for your ad, placing them in the most effective spots on the page, putting together the best combination of ad units, enhancing your site with the best keywords, selecting the most ideal colors for the font and the background, and a whole lot more besides.
The biggest AdSense mistake you can make is leaving your AdSense units looking like ads.
The second biggest mistake you can make is to not know the best strategies to change them.

Discipline is key To create a content-rich Website, you need to hone your focus and your self-discipline. I don’t have to tell you how incredibly easy it is to waste hours, even days, just surfing around the web from one site to another. You can’t let yourself get distracted like that or you won’t accomplish anything. Start with setting a limit to surfing for fun so that you limit your searches to sites and resources that are related very directly to your site's subject.
Discipline also applies to creating creation. Successful writers can’t afford to wait for inspiration to strike before starting work. Instead, they develop a writing schedule for themselves and they stick with it like it was their job—since it is. As one famous writer said, “I write when I feel like it. And every morning at 9am, I make sure I feel like it.” Schedule a time for yourself to sit down at your desk and write.
And you’ll need to develop another schedule for when to add content to your Website, and follow that schedule religiously. Make a commitment to yourself and follow through with it.
And remember—if you just simply can’t write, or you find yourself making too many excuses not to write content, just hire someone.
Go to www.Elance.com and post a project to write 20 articles of 300-600 words each for $5 to $10 each. You’ll find someone.
Regular updates are critical to your site
Nothing is deader than a website that looks like somebody’s forgotten about it. Regularly updating or modifying your site content gives you a big advantage over the competition. Web surfers will keep on coming back to your site if they notice that there’s always something new to see, learn, or enjoy each time.
