Ok, so, put up your hands all those who are only here for this topic? 😉
Anyway, there are MANY ways to earn money from blogging. We can all see I’m using Google AdSense here, but here’s a very quick rundown:
- Per-Click Advertising – Probably the most famous of these is Google’s AdSense. This is a very simple way of earning money as it involves putting some code into your web pages, and Google’s system does the rest. It scans your text and finds ads it feels are most relevant.
- Affiliate Programs – This is where you put adverts on your page for specific products and you get a small commission if any items are sold via these adverts. A good example of a company that does this is Amazon.com.
- Selling Ad Space on your blog – This mainly happens when you have a large readership. You can then approach suppliers, (they could even approach you), and offer to sell them space on your blog to put relevant adverts on. They would then pay you a pre-arranged amount.
So, depending on what you’re looking for, there are many ways to earn money blogging. In future posts I will be highlighting a lot of them, but my focus will be mainly on Google AdSense. To give you some sort of optimism, there are people out there earning MUCH more than $10,000 A MONTH from AdSense. There are even videos that people have outlining how to earn money from AdSense. I won’t be showing any videos for AdSense any time soon, though. I like the idea of keeping things simple.
