Hi Everyone,

Firstly it feels good to comeback here after more than couple of years where I was busy studying and now working (even more busier )

Alright I need some help/suggestions on my ideas. I have never created a website till now and not even a blog. I am thinking of creating a site regarding my favorite club in the soccer, later expanding my ideas for creating a whole Sports website(The Sport Bible website) containing fun facts, memes, latest news, reviews of teams/players, videos etc etc.

How do I actually make a site to earn in this? I have learned about SEO related articles and all that, but in this case of pics, videos and small articles, how do I make some money?

I know little bit of getting traffic via Facebook and twitter. But please shed a light on other ways and provide some links for me learn about this unique thing.

Thanks and Regards,
Girish Prabhu

    how do I make some money? this should be: how do I build a great website?
    If you start a website to make money with it, you are in the wrong thoughts..

    Start a website to give your visitors valuable content, think about how you can create good articles.Think what you can do for your visitors, Think about why visitors should visit my websit again?

    When you have built your website it will take 3 months to get free traffic from Google. Of course if you have created and continue to create good articles.

    When you see you get high traffic, then you can think about how can I make money with it

      I will keep that in mind, Suleyman.
      But my concern is the ways to make my website look great. I am thinking to go for Wordpress to make my own website.

      I have a good brain to collect news, pictures, videos from. I have some sources via internet. But all I need is how do I go about and applying my thoughts on site that I create?

        WordPress is great I use it also I have a website about sport, and create articles about topics I like.

        Just setup your website with WordPress and start creating articles. Most of my articles I use Youtube videos.

    Wordpress is awesome. I avoided it for a long time, because I never used it. Wordpress sites are so easy to setup, and they look pretty great too.

    PM me if you want or need further help or suggestions. I want to create a simple Wordpress guide soon.

    wordpress is a great starting place to get a website up and going. They are pretty simple to create and easy to work with.

    Eventually, you can add things line AdSense and what not to help you make money off the site, but I agree with what was said above that you need to establish a credible, value-adding site first.

    Since you've already chosen a niche, go ahead and buy a domain and hosting. Use WordPress for your blog - it's easy to manage and comes with tons of free themes and plugins. Start posting content, including text, videos, and photos. As your blog grows and attracts readers, you'll be able to monetize it. Consider selling advertising space, creating your own products, or promoting affiliate offers.

      Create articles which will start social interactions on your fan page or twitter accounts. Even if you think your opinion is controversial others will interact and pull other readers in.

    Use wordpress and look to hire somebody to create you a custom wordpress theme. You can find a premium theme for $55 on theme forest but why not have one made the way YOU want it to look like. Have it made and coded.

    Try to incorporate it like a community of game lovers. Game niches work well when you have fans sharing their comments and suggestions.
