4 Tips To Make Money From Your Blog

Aug 17, 2007
It seems like everyone is making a blog now. A lot of people use blogs as a personal web page for friends and family or just to talk about their personal passions and to get their views heard.

More recently people are starting to realize they can make money from their blogs. There are many ways to do this and I have listed four of these ways below.


You can add Adsense to your blog for free and ads relating to your blog's theme will show on your site. You will make money every time someone clicks on your ad. The amount you earn per click is calculated in different ways and you cannot predict a specific amount that you will earn, but it is free money and you will receive something for each click. Be sure and read all of the guidelines when setting up your Adsense account to avoid illegal clicking and being banned by Adsense.


Another great way to monetize your blog is to write articles and put your blog URL in your author's bio. This will send targeted people that are interested in your theme to your blog. This traffic could bring you some Adsense clicks. You can also have links to affiliate products in your blog posts that can bring in some income. Some of the more popular places to submit your articles are Ezinearticles.com, Goarticles.com, Searchwarp.com and Articlemarketer.com.
Your articles will be around for a long time so post to your blog regularly.

Classified Ads

You can place classified ads about your blog to help get good search engine rankings. One of the most popular right now is USfreeads.com. You can place free or paid ads to send people to your blog or affiliate product. Some people even place classified ads in off line magazines that will target different types of consumer. If you decide to do this be sure and choose a magazine about your niche, the nichier the better. Some people follow certain niche magazines and will buy anything related to their particular niche.

Opt In

Placing an Opt In form on your blog is a great way to make money from your blog. You can follow up with your sign ups with good content and also you put your affiliate products in your emails. Do not just send out sales letters. Offer quality information and your subscribers will repay you with giving your affiliate products more attention.

These are a few ways to show you that blogging can be both fun and profitable. Start your blogging for dollars now and have a great time doing it!

One thing to keep in mind when monitizing your blog is to keep your articles and posts relavent to your theme. This will help you to get more search engine traffic.
