Monetizing your blog
Believe it or not, but it’s actually possible to make money from
blogging. One teenager has, in fact, earned $5,000 a month just
from making posts on his blog! Of course, not every blogger is
this lucky. It does take some skill, and some luck to make money
from blogging. What it also takes is some knowledge of how
exactly to generate income just by posting blogs. In this
newsletter, we will go over three specific methods of making
money on your blog: Adsense, Pay Per Lead, and Affiliate Links.
So how exactly do I make money on my blog?
You do it by working with another company that wants to use your
blog as a form of advertising. It sounds like selling out,
right? Not exactly. The advertising can be as in your face or
subtle as you want. And it can still make you money, provided
you have enough visitors to your blog.
What is Adsense?
Adsense is a program offered by Google. The program, if
installed, will display ads provided by Google.
How do I get Adsense?
You’ll need to go to Google.com, first. At the bottom of the
screen is a link for “Advertising Programs”. Click on that. Then
click on the link for “Adsense”. Scroll down on the page that
comes up and click “Click Here To Apply!” You then fill out the
form with information about yourself. After 12-48 hours, Google
will notify you via email whether or not your site has been
accepted. When you’ve been accepted, set up your ads by doing
either of the following:
1.If your blog is hosted on Blogger.com, you can set up your
AdSense ads by going to your profile, selecting
settings>template>add an element. Then select AdSense and login
with your account info. Next, you’ll configure your ads and save
the template. That’s it.
2.If you are self-hosting your blog, you’ll have to set up
AdSense in more of a manual way. You’ll create your ads(which
can be as small or as tall as you want) and then copy the
your blog(on the left, right, or top of the screen).
For the first few days, the ads displayed by Google will be
Public Service Announcements. After the ads have been up a few
days, though, the ads will switch to ads that are relevant to
How does Adsense work?
Every time a visitor clicks an Adsense ad, you get a little bit
of money(usually around 30-60 cents). The amount you get for
each ad clicked depends on the number of unique visitors you
receive on your blog. The more visitors, the more money that can
Google will then send a check or pay you through Paypal once
you’ve made at least $100 from the ads.
It is important to remember that Google will penalize you if you
click your own ads, or if you ask visitors specifically to click
ads. So don’t do that!
Pay Per Click
Pay Per Click is basically just like AdSense, except you don’t
just work with Google—you work with multiple companies.
BidVertiser is one such company you can sign up with to do Pay
Per Click advertising.
How do I get Pay Per Click
You sign up with a site like Bidvertiser and then follow their
instructions to set up the Pay Per Click ads on your site.
How does Pay Per Click work?
It works by paying you money each time someone clicks an ad that
you display. You won’t get paid for multiple clicks from the
same user in the same visitor, nor will you get paid for someone
simply visiting your site. You only get paid for legitimate
Affiliate links are basically links which people pay you for.
Companies will actually pay owners of popular blogs to post
links on their blog. You can do as much Affiliate linking as you
How do I get Affiliate Links?
You can get Affiliate links by searching for “Affiliate Link
Programs” on the internet. Once you find an Affiliate link
program that looks good to you, sign up for it. Then you can
follow their instructions for putting the link(s) on your blog.
How do Affiliate Links work?
Like the other two methods mentioned above, Affiliate links work
by paying you money each time they are clicked. You get paid for
each click per unique visitor.
So that’s it. There’s three legitimate ways to make money from
blogging. It is important to keep in mind that the amount of
money you are able to make depends on how many visitors your
blog draws. If you draw a lot, you’ll make a lot. If not, the
money you earn will be modest. But it’s still extra money, so
why not do it?
Making money using Adsense, Pay Per Click or Affiliate Link
programs is easy and effective. Start monetizing your blog
