[Guide] How To Make Money Using a Blog

Many friends have asked me whether we can make money online from blogs or not. I told them you can make money even by selling lemonade at the corner of your school but the main problem is that you must have passion and time for what you will be blogging. Many people fail because they are starting blogs just to make money , they are writing 2 or 3 articles and they are using different affiliate links and other advertisement programs to catch any cents.

You must know that in order to make some money , at least you should know what you are talking about and not post just crap in order to increase number of posts in your blog.
Many newbies on the internet doesn't even know how to get a free blog online so in this article I will explain step by step what you have to do in order to make some cash from your blog

There are 2 big blog providers online which are

  • WordPress.com
  • Blogger.com

- WordPress has a lot of templates and widgets so you can use for your blog , you can create categories and you can even purchase more space and other cool features if you upgrade
- Blogger was purchased by Google so the best part is that you can get accepted to Adsense through Blogger. The bad part is that you cannot create categories but you can give Labels to your posts as they were categories (Im doing it)

You must know that creating a blog is really simple but updating it everyday with new and unique content is really a hard work (its not so hard if you speak about your favorite niche like I'm doing) So content will be the judger whether you will be a successful blogger or not, if you will update it once a week chances will be very low but if you will post good and unique content every day then you will be in the right road

So ok so far , you have created the blog , you chose your template and you are posting some articles. You will ask how will you get the traffic ?

There are tons of ways to drive traffic to a blog , I will explain some of the techniques I'm also using

  • Register at FeedBurner.com
  • Register at TechnoRati.com
  • If you are a member of DigitalPoint Forum add your RSS Feed to your profile (it will be shown under your username everytime you post a new reply or thread)
  • Write some unique articles and upload them at Article Directories (See this post for more explanations)
  • Register at MyBlogLog.com
  • Add your blog url to your signatures in every forum you are (if possible add also an avatar with your blog's address)
  • Add your blog url to high pr directories

So with 7 easy and free ways you can start seeing some increases in your traffic (Note that if you dont post regularly your traffic may decrease again)

Now I know that all of you are thinking , how will we be making money from our blogs ? Its really simple but I would strongly recommend use just 2 or maximum 3 advertisments and do not put the advertisements from the beginning (wait until you have some traffic then you may add them) Make sure your advertisements and other widgets are like your template so you wont have a lot of contrast.

Here I'm listing the ways how you can make money from your blog once you have some decent traffic and some readers

  • Adsense (CPM & PPC which pays differently for each niche)
  • Text-Link-Ads (Get Money if someone buys a link to your site from TLA)
  • ReviewMe (Get paid for different reviews you make , more traffic you have more you will earn)
  • PayPerPost (same as ReviewMe but it has more advertisers in their network)
  • Money4Banners (Doesn't matter if you have a small or big blog , you get 10$ when you sign up and 5$ every month just to display their advertisment
  • WidgetBucks (this seems to be most promising program which pays very high rates but nobody has received any payment so far as its a new company)

So I'm listing just these 6 ways but if you would be interested on others feel free to contact me and I will share my experience with you.

Make sure you use proper keywords for each article and make sure your blog structure is like :

http://yourblog.com/this-is-how-you...rl-must-be.html

and not like :

http://yourblog.com/2007/2425.html (SEO Purposes)

Share your comments for this article if you found anything special !
This article was created for some friends who asked me how can we make money from blogs and I believe that an advanced webmaster knows almost everything explained here

This is a great tutorial, but the problem is tha wordpress.com blogs does not alloud ads, so onlye payPerPost and ReviewMe could be used. :(

Dollar Demon - Make money online said...

Great informative article :)
Due to the restrictions of wordpress and other blogging sites another option to consider is buying your own domain (only a few bucks) and hosting your own wordpress blog. Then your options really open up for earning as you can join affiliate programs (get paid per sale/lead) as well as running ppc ads.

We offer a piece of free software that is really a desk top search engine that looks at all the blogs for a certain keyword of phrase. You enter your name and web site and keywords and PR Back Link will do the searching and present a list of blogs to pick from. You then load them in the viewer and enter a comment on the subject. If the comment is deemed worthy then the blog master will keep the comment and you will probably get some traffic to your web site and maybe a link to your page as well. I have used it several times and it works very well. It is well worth the money. All you have to do is go to my web page to get it. http://www.makemoremoneysolutions.com/

FREE RAPIDSHARE ACCOUNTS!!!

Not only can you get a rapidshare account but you can earn cash to buy other things.
This process can get a bit tedious but its worth it in the end so give it a go

Just follow these simple steps

First of all you need Firefox for this to work.

1)Skip this step if u already own a paypal account
Go to https://www.paypal.com/ and sign up
Create a paypal premier account (this is for free)

When asked to give credit card details click on CANCEL

2)Now,
Go to
http://bux.to/?r=jedra
And register.
Please leave name jedra as your referral in your registration. By doing that you will give me points.
If you leave textbox REFERRAL empty, then after you register www.bux.to will sell your account to someone other who pays.
So basically you will either way end up as someones referral. Mine or someone else's. Therefore please leave name "jedra" as referral.
You'll be paid just to click on their ads.
The more you click the more you earn.

How You Make Money
You make money by simply visiting websites for at least 30 seconds/visit. They will pay you $0.01 for each website you visit and $0.01 for each website your referrals visit. The best part is you can have an unlimited amount of referrals! To keep Bux from getting top-heavy you will only earn money from those that you directly refer. This gives everyone who participates in the program a fair advantage to earn the most amount of money because you have the potential to earn more than your sponsor! Payments are issued via PayPal on a daily basis but you must request for a payment to be processed. Once requested, your payment will be issued within 24-48 hours (usually sooner). You must earn at least $10 to receive payment.


3)Make it automatic (basically, leave Firefox open, and you'll make money :D)

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/115
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

Install those 2 Addons
(GreaseMonkey and ReloadEvery)


4)Now, go to http://bux.to/surf.php

Right Click Any where on the page > ReloadEvery > Enable
Right Click Again > ReloadEvery > Custom
Set it to 1minute and 30Seconds. (This means every 1minute and 30 seconds the page will refresh)

5)Next, Install this file (go to the following url in FireFox) http://www.gss.org.yu/bux/bux.user.js (Greasemonkey will ask you to install the file, click 'Install')

6)Now, go back to http://bux.to/surf.php, and leave the page open 24/7 and every 1minute and 30seconds the page will refresh, and if a new ad appears, you will automatically click it.

EASY MONEY :D.

7) Use the money to pay for your rapidshare accounts ;), or something else

Here is the deal… sign up for paypal and just buy your own free
rapidshare premium account by clicking ads for a few weeks.

www.paypal.com

then go to

http://bux.to/?r=bob112 (best one - has the most ads of any site)

http://paid.vg/?r=diviownsjoo (also good, but not as good as the one above)

register and click ads for like 5 mins each day, and you can easily make 3-5 bucks a week.
This is the fastest site that I've found and it's the only one that's worth it. In no time,
you'll have enough money to buy your account or buy stuff online.

In my experience, its easy to just take a few surveys and rack up money on paypal. Takes about an hour or so, but everyone knows it is worth it. Sites like truewebprofit.com have surveys you can do in a few minutes after you register.

Easy Cash said...

http://www.weekendeasycash.com

100 Dollars a day making money online would be fantastic. Imagine if you can make it passive as well. Just a few hours work to make some good cash.

This is achievable. Starting small is a good idea. Also - Adsense is a good way to make some cash. If you apply your skills - making cash online can be easy.

I know about adsense. But how the others? Are they accept small sites? I mean few visitors per day sites?

Very helpful info. I think some people forget before adding a way to make money from their site, they first need to drive some traffic to it. Thanks for reminding people of that.
