What is a blog?
The actual meaning of blog is a page that can be used as web log. There are several kinds of blogs found in these days; some of them are personal blogs, media blogs, corporate blogs, micro blogs (Facebook and Tumblr) etc.
Some of the famous blog software companies are: Movable Type, Gawker, WordPress, Crowd Fusion, Drupal, and Google's Blogspot/Blogger. WordPress is the highest popular blogging company in the world; which is a free and open source blogging system. It has many easiest methods of practices that any computer illiterate can use and make his blog very easily. Google's Blogspot/Blogger is too having many easy template and tools to create a personal and business blogs.
Even though WordPress is the number one blogging system and content management system in the world; but I prefer to go for Google's Blogger; which is very cheap and best for new users. The benefit of using Blogger is you'll get various free gadgets that can be used easily just reading about their methods of use. In addition, it'll be easy to get the AdSense account from Google; as it is a product of Google itself. However, you need to post good search engine optimized articles or contents which are highly searched on the net.
How to create a blog?
If you want to create blog from Google's Blogspot or blogger then just logon to your Google' account and click on the Blogger/Blogger.com. There you'll see an option as 'New Blog' in left hand side. Click on that you'll see a popup box to give your blog name, blog address, and select one template; then submit the 'Create Blog!' button. If your given address for the blog is available then it will create a new blog; or else you've to give another name which is available in blogspot.com.
Now your blog is ready; you just need to create new posts. Creating new posts in blogger is very as we do in Ms-Word or WordPad. You can write the content in WordPad or Ms-word and paste in the content box of new post; where you can modify the content with the help of various tools. In your post you can add images and insert videos directly from your computer or from YouTube.
How to apply for AdSense Account through Blog?
Before going to apply for AdSense you need to go through various practices; which I'm sharing here shortly.
1. Write contents your own (not copied from any other source/media), good English with Search Engine Optimized (SEO) keywords;
2. Try to post at least one article in a week and share them with your friends through various social networking sites like, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Technorati, Pinterest, Tumblr etc.
3. Keep tracking your posts and see which type of contents are highly read and searched by the users. It can be tracked in blogger dashboard from 'Stats' menu. There you can see the traffic source, your audience to your posts, number of page views etc. After knowing the most visited sites and keywords used, try posting such relevant, fresh and SEOptimized contents to get huge traffic and AdSense approval very easily.
After getting huge traffic, you can apply for AdSense; which is better to get approval easily/quickly without any deny from Google. Visit: https://www.google.com/adsense/ to apply for AdSense.
