We have many writers wanting to write for our food blog. Many of you have asked very good questions. I decided to write this post to give you all of the information needed to make the decision about whether or not to write for My Kitchen Vault.
How do you look for keywords using the Google Keyword Research Tool?
This is easy. All we are looking for is keywords with a bar with little to no fill inside. This means there is little competition for this keyword. If you sort by clicking the competition tab twice, you will have the least competitive keywords first. Now, look for the topics with a high number of monthly searches.
Doing these two things will give you keywords with little competition and a high number of monthly searches and you will have success writing for our website.
What are some examples of articles that used the Google Keyword Research Tool?
What other ways I can get a higher rank and get more traffic from the search engines to my pages?
There are three things you can do to get a higher ranking which leads to more traffic. These are in the order of importance, but ALL are important.
Use the Google Keyword Tool
Post the link to your article on food blogs, food forums, and other food related websites.
Share your articles on your social media pages like Facebook, Twitter, and Dig.
Make sure to use the keywords in your title, the first paragraph, and in the body your article without sounding like spam.
When you would like to add content to your articles or answer questions, feel free to login and leave a comment on your article.
Can I place links on my website to other websites?
Yes you can. No Spam stuff. Just place the link in after your sentence and I will make the link.
How do I get paid?
This is probably the most common question I get. You get paid two ways. You get paid $5 for every article you write that gets published on MKV. We do want article that are using keywords from the keyword tool above. You also receive 50% of all of the advertising revenue collected from your pages.
If you are planning to write more than 100 articles and you already have your own Adsense account, we do have an alternative option available where you get 100% of the advertising revenue. With this option, you would provide your code every time you submit an article. We would put your code on all of your articles. You would be able to track your own stats and you would get paid from Google. With this option, you do not get paid $5 per article, but you would still own the rights to your articles. We just ask that you keep them up for 8 months. It takes us time to put your articles online and we don’t plan to take them off nightly. In 6 months, we will be extending our website to allow authors the ability to upload and track articles. This will be done in the personal profiles on our website.
When do I get paid?
We pay in increments of $200. If you collect $200 from writing 40 articles or you have a combination of ad revenue and the $5 per article, the threshold is $200. When you reach the threshold, we will ask you for your PayPal email so that we can send you out the money.
Great question, there are two ways to write articles for our website.
Option A: You write about an ingredient. With this article, you will need to write at least 300+ words about that ingredient. In addition to the 300+ words about the ingredient, you have to include three recipes that feature the ingredient that you are writing about. You can get these recipes online; however, to comply with copyright laws, you must change the preparation and directions on the recipes.
Option B: You can write about any food or ingredient related topic. If you choose to write about a food related topic, you need to write at least 600+ words. This is the minimum. To get the most content on your page about your topic, you are going to need to write more. The more information you have about your topic, the higher rank you will have with Google and Yahoo and the more money you will make. This is a guarantee. Make sure to use the keywords in your title, the first paragraph, and throughout your article without sounding like spam.
Can I have Youtube Videos on my page?
Yes. If you would like to have a Youtube video embeded on your article, Place XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is the location on your article that you would like the video to be and I would be happy to place the video in the article. I also need the link to the youtube video so I can go find it. Please note, not all youtube videos will fit and some youtube accounts need passwords, so I can not place all videos on MKV. I will be happy to look for you.
If you have more questions, please ask and I will update this page.
