Making Money from our blog is something we all aspire to selling links and advertising space are two great way to earn from our blog. The advertisers we accept can they be detrimental to our blog? Though provoking is it? One thing I came to realize is that we need to be careful when accepting offers for placing links on our website or blogs. Don’t get me wrong here advertisers are generally normal and genuine but there are websites that sell links for and behalf of others link Seo companies who tend to use black hat techniques to boast their Seo campaign.
I strongly believe that it is okay to sell links on your website and it is and can be a good source of income but because of the nature and competitive business cause Seo it is know that there are website out there acting as agents and buying links space either through sidebar ads are articles to boast clients’ website to get a better placement in the Search Engine Results Pages. How does this affect your website you may ask? It can just cast your mind back to the saga with Google and BMW a few years back.
The effect that this can have on your website could be the same as that of BMW your website or blog disappear from the search results. As i mentioned before advertisers are not the problem here but the ones that act on their behalf as we all know money can influence most things, i would love to sell lots of links from my blog, a passive income is great but we should not sacrifice the credibility of our blog for a few dollars. Before you decided to place those links on your blog make sure that you check where the link will be pointing to don’t get caught out.
Selling links are advertising space is a good source of income for your blog but make sure that you vet every links that has been offered to you check the seller’s reputation and the agent who sells the links as it is reveal that they bulk sell links for advertisers and some of these brokers are seen as spammers. Would you want to get caught up in this? No I don’t think so. Selling links is not something you should fear just be conscious and you bear these things in mind and as the saying goes if it sounds good then probably it is too good to be true. Remember it is your blog your business don’t ruin it for a few dollars, share your thoughts. Have you ever reject and advertisers?
