How To Make Money Blogging

Making Money BloggingAfter you create a blog that is interesting, now it is time to start making money. The second step of getting visitors is the most important, if you plan on making money. The third step is choosing how you will make money from your blog. You should try to keep your blog on the same topic on all your post, being that you can have an unlimited number of blogs, you can have a blog for any and every topic you choose. Make sure to start a new blog if you are totally off the main subject of the blog that you are posting to.

Blogger and several other free blog companies make it very simple to have a brand new blog up and running in a matter of a few minutes. Try not to post an article about dogs on a blog about golf. Once you have an interesting blog on one particular topic, the best place to start making money is Google AdSense. Blogger has made it very simple to add AdSense ads to your blog.

The ads that show up on your blog will be targeted towards the topic of your blog, which means if you have a blog about dogs, the ads that show up on your blog will deal with pets. It’s like Google is paying you to advertise on your blog.

Another way to make money with your blog is with affiliate programs. Companies will pay you good money to advertise their products, and all you have to do is put a link or banner on your blog leading to that companies web site. Once a sale is made the company gives you a commission. That is the reason you should pick one topic for your blog. If you want to have a blog about your life, by all means do it, but have other blogs about specific topics if you want to make money.

Once you find a topic that interest you, look for affiliate programs for that particular topic. With the dog blog example, there are several dog training products that you can have links and banners to on a dog blog that will make good money. Click Bank is the top company when it comes to affiliate products, they have over 10,000 products to choose from. Browse their products to see which ones you would like to promote. Obviously you want to pick something that fits the topic of your blog, but don’t limit yourself to just one, you can change a product you are promoting with a few clicks.

The internet is the essence of marketing, by that I mean, every word in an ad matters, every colour, where the ad is located on your blog, whether is is blinking or not, and the colour of the text. It might not seem like all of those things matter, but the fact is, everything that you decide matters. The good thing is you can experiment with how your blog looks as much as you want. There are several e-books written on how you should place and where you should place them, in the beginning, just go with the basic blog set-up until you get the hang of things.

    Nice advise for those that are new to blogging. Most people tend to loose their focus when they start their blogs and failed to preserve a community that shares the same interest. Being able to bond a group of people with the same interest can surely help your blog to succeed.

    Hi Lawmacs

    Couldn’t agree more with what you say about every element of an ad being important, from the colour, where the ad is placed, colour of text etc. It’s all important and you need to test a lot to see what works for your blog and niche.

    I must say that those are the real deal in making money through blogs but i just want to stress out that before engaging in this type of business, people should understand that achieving success in this business doesn’t happen overnight. It requires motivation, passion and time management.

    That’s some very nice input. I am just getting started with blogging ans I’m gathering ideas at the moment. I probably would have ended up with a blog mixing two subjects…
    But I guess you’re right. One subject per blog.

  14. Avatar of Tana

    You can make money blogging but it is not easy and it does not happen overnight. You need to blog every day and your posts need to be original, interesting, and unique. One blog is usually not enough either. I have over 20 blogs covering different topics and I also use Hubpages and Squidoo too. The best money I make is from right here at Webanswers. The most money will come from your Google Adsense account that is associated with all of your blogs and answers.

    There’s always good money being made in blogging, but it takes time and hard work before things start running smoother and you start earning. If you’re into Google Adsense or affiliate marketing for instance, you need to gain trust from search engines to get your blog or website rank high in the search engine results, as well as gain trust from online users for better conversions.

    This is awesome. I have bookmarked it and this week I’m going to spend some more time on it. I read it through today, but I’ll be back to go over it make some notes. I really appreciate you taking the time to share this, and non-coincidentally, I’m thinking this HAS to be something that will get you lots of readers and clicks and so on, although I have the sense most people won’t have the drive, the smarts, or the persistence to succeed at blogging. Just from my own limited experience I know it’s A LOT of work. I am going to look at what you lay here more carefully and give it some serious consideration.

    Anyone who uses a blog to make money knows that the only way you can keep earning money from the blog is to keep the traffic coming. While there are many ways to get readers to your blog, it is important to get them to keep returning. Make your blog more appealing to your readers and keep them coming back…
