Build Your Authority – The Basic of Earning Money Online
You may not be a super star. You are not Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg. But think about it. They were not as famous as today. Their authority was built step by step and didn’t give up while encountered any obstacles. Everything about earning money online are trust and authority. Why do they success? This is just because of they have started building their authority at the very beginning.
Google needs your authority. People need your authority. You need customers’ trust. Fair enough. You are not earning money fast online at first. But since you have built up your basics and authority. Earning $10,000 a month isn’t difficult for you anymore. The truth is, you can earn money online same as the 40-year-old businessman as a college student. I am a University student from Hong Kong and I am pretty sure that you can do it too.

Things Need to be Done in this Study
- Build your Website
- Create your first post
- Keep Adding Content!
Build a Website Within 1 Minute!
Now you have already registered a domain name (or you may be using a free domain). You can now build your website. If you have read my personal Wealthy Affiliate review, you know it is simple to build a website within 1 minute. But for this case study, we have to think about what theme to use to optimize your business stream. (You can choose 2400+ themes within Wealthy Affiliate.) Building a website is not a tough and hard job for you. Just literally press few buttons then your website is ready.
Create Your First Post!
The first few pages and posts are the most important content for your website. This is because Google will crawl your website and start seeing whether your contents are helpful and worth-ranking. So instead of building the basement of your website, you should create few pieces of Pillar Content that drive traffic into your website. This requires good keyword research and education. But with Wealthy Affiliate, you can learn all these stuff and Wealthy Affiliate is providing Keyword Tool for You if you are a premium member.
Add an About Me Page
About Me page is really important for creating a successful online business. If you ask people what is the most important element of a successful business, people may probably say “Trust”. If you are entrusted, your product, your review and your experience will probably be easily trusted too. For making money in online, your website also needs to be trusted by Google. This is because Google wants its search engine being useful and providing legitimate information to people. If you are a scammer and no one trust you, Google may not rank you high and give you traffic.
So why do About Me page important? This is an indicator to let people know you are real and you are not afraid to let people know who you are. When people feeling being scammed, the first person to blame is you instead of the company. This is because you reviewed the product and you are promoting them. If people think you are just making money online and not providing them real and true information, they won’t trust you and not willing to engage with you anymore. You won’t succeed with this situation.
Just write about yourself and why are you creating this website. How can you help people? Are you a professional within this segment? Do you have related experience? Tell people about your story!
Keep Adding Content
Keep adding content to make your website being fruitful. I will make some posts and videos to talk about how to add good content and what to write. For now, just keep writing different content and let Google crawl more keywords from your website.
