Whether or not you like writing, articles now play an important role in learning how to make money online. Not only can you make money off impressions and page views on article sites such as www.hubpages.com/ , and adverts from Google adsense, but as I’m sure many of you are aware, they receive free traffic unlike the paid ads, because they rank very well in the search engines. This is where SEO (Search Engine Optimization) comes in.
Although articles do rank well on the search engines such as:-

Also be sure to include plenty of links to give your site or article credibility.

One final thing, if you would like to start this, then i would suggest you get google adsense.
You need to apply for it. One way to ensure you successfully get it is to create a blog on google Blogger, and add a few posts over a few days. It doesnt have to be about anything specific, just post what you did that day for example, and use that blog in the application as they generally dont accept your account on an article site.
