Will this wordpress theme allow me to make money?
This is really getting to me, and I really don’t want to continue writing on this theme unless I know I can make money in the future.
I want to start posting so bad, but I don’t want it to go to waste. Has anyone else made any type of money with this type of theme? Do you think I should switch to a different theme now before I really start pushing out articles?
Someone told him what I would have told him — the theme doesn’t mean squat — but it’s at the top of his worries:
I understand that quality content and SEO is the biggest part of it. That’s why I dont mention it in my question, because that’s not what I am worried about…
Just wait until he figures out that “quality content” and search-engine optimization are mutually contradictory. Ask the guy who’s been doing this sort of thing for more than two decades:
Any professed SEO expert is going to tell you that you need this, a heap of that, several of those, and just a pinch of spice for Google to rank you. Well, Google isn’t going to rank you: they’re wise to all these schemes, and once they find out you’ve been spinning articles — copying stuff you find, sending it through some sort of verbal Cuisinart to make it look less like a copy, and then claiming it for your own — they’re going to bury you nine hundred pages down, where you belong. If it’s important to you to get on Google’s front page, send them a check. It’s legal, it doesn’t require you to steal anything from anyone, and it’s amazingly effective. “But I shouldn’t have to do that,” you cry. Yes, you should. There has never been a free lunch, and you’re not going to get one in blogdom.
But Mr Moody here isn’t about to give Google any money. He’s still evidently pissed at having to put out $59 for a copy of this theme.
