Have you ever wondered where news sites get their traffic from?
It’s no big secret that journalism has taken a radical turn with the dawn of digital news.

Employers googling your name to run a background check on you? Prospective supervisors looking at your Facebook to check your private life? We’ve all heard of it at one point or another. In fact, I’ve already written an article on that for a client who wants some perspective on just how important your accounts in social networking sites are.
By now you should’ve already noticed how most articles like these focus on prevention. What they’re telling you, basically, is that you should be careful about what you say in the WWW–everybody, and I mean everybody, can get their hands on it.

Even if you wanted to, you just don’t know how. There’s either too little or too much to work with. There are a lot of walkthroughs giving general guides as to where you can start, but what I’ve noticed about the few articles is their lack of specificity. For people who are just about to make the Internet a melting pot of cash, it’s hard to know where to begin without a detailed companion on how to earn money online.
