Blogging For Money

To make money online you need a strategy. Which all sounds quite simple, decide what strategy you are going to use and then get to work on it. It is finding the right strategy that is the difficult part.

There is so much information available about working online and so many people selling their information and all of them saying their’s is the best way to earn an income online.
So how do you really know which way is the best way. Which strategy will be one that you will be able to do?

A good way to choose your strategy is to find one that has and is still working for hundreds of people. One that is relatively simple to do and can get you started with your online career with minimal start up costs.

One of the easiest and very effective ways to make money online is by having a blog. You can make a lot of money just by setting up your own blog. Make posts to your blog on a regular basis, ping your blog and sprinkle affiliate links throughout your blog.

The first thing you need to do is to choose a topic that you are going to promote. Then search for some affiliate products in relation to that topic. Clickbank is a great place to find products to promote. For example, you may want to set up a blog for ‘self improvement’. Search the relevant clickbank category for all self improvement products and find your affiliate links for them.

Start your blog and try to post to your blog daily. You can post a few paragraphs relating to self improvement and in particular to the product you are promoting and at the end have a link to the affiliate product.

You don’t necessarily have to put affiliate links in every day, but if you can post new content every day will help your blog to get a good ranking and good traffic.

You can also use banners and links to affiliate products in the sidebar of your blog.

Then each time someone purchases a product through the link on your blog you will make money. You can also place Google Adsense ads throughout your blog and earn some extra money through Adsense too.

Try to use good keywords relating to your topic to draw high traffic to your blog and you can also use other techniques to generate traffic.

Blogging For Profit And Traffic

Blogging for profit involves specific knowledge of how to make money online, although if you are only blogging for traffic then you are guaranteed that if you link your website to your blog.

In order to blog for profit, or to make money in other words, you need to understand the principles of Google Adsense, a selling advertising space on your blog and affiliate marketing. You could also advertise your products on your blog if you have any to sell, but you will likely be doing the selling from your website and that is another technique altogether.

Before discussing ways in which you can use your blog to make money, let’s first discuss your blog, and where you are operating it from. If your blog is a Blogger or Wordpress blog hosted by either of these two, then your options are very limited when compared to uploading your own blogging software from If you are serious about blogging for money then you should do so from your own website.

If you have no web host as yet, and are seeking one from which to operate your blog, then make sure that your host offers MySQL. You will need that to run Wordpress from your website. The reason that Wordpress is recommended is that it is the best blogging software online if you have your own website. If you do not, then many people prefer Blogger, although others still use Wordpress from the site.

I will not go further into this because it is not the object of this article, which is to recommend ways of making money from a blog. First register with Google Adsense. Enter that into your browser and follow all of the instructions. You will be able to offer adverts on your blog, and will be paid every time somebody clicks on an advert. They don’t have to buy anything, just click on the advert.

You should place your Adsense blocks somewhere on your sidebar, and also at the bottom of your blog so that when people have finished reading they have something to click on. If your reader reaches the end of your article, page of blog, it means that are interested in what are writing, otherwise they would have left and clicked on to somewhere else.

If you have nothing at the end of the post or the page, then people will feel somewhat let down. If you provide them with something to do, even just to click on an advert that interests them, then that is what they are liable to do. The theme of the adverts are determined by the Google contextual algorithm often called LSI, that determines the theme of your content through the vocabulary that you use in it.

You can also offer affiliate links on your blog: links to products being sold by others whereby you get a proportion of the sales price for each sales (frequently 50%). You can find lots of affiliate products to sell on or simply by entering the term into your favourite search engine. These links can take the form of banner ads, text links or clickable logo, and you can place them anywhere on your blog.

This applies predominantly for blogs run from your own website, where you have total editing over the html of the various components of your blog: the stylesheet that controls each complete page, the headers, footers, sidebars and everything else that makes up your blog. You do not have this degree of control over a hosted blog. If you want to use your blog to make real money, then it is necessary to have your blog on your own website rather than on a blog host such as Bloggit or

There are other ways in which to use your blog to make money, and blogging for profit and traffic is a combination of many sources of income and traffic generation techniques. Once you understand how to use these, you will find your blog a lot more useful than just a simple website.
