Have you heard that you can make money blogging? Well it is true, you can make money blogging but it’s going to take more then just setting up a blog and making a few posts. It is going to take some good content on your blog to get the visitors to come and to click on your links.
And so I grrrrrrrrrr to myself, tear out my hair, and continue to blog. Yes I duplicate stuff that is on my business site, and articles I submit for submission, and I ad links to my own writing especially when it is published professionally.
Make comments in other blogs Since blogs and blog posts are picked up really fast by search engines you can profit from this by adding your comments to other people’s blogs. It’s the natural way of exchanging links in the blog world. Posting useful and relevant comments frequently also brands you as an expert!
I kept hearing about Tips for running a website, those personal websites that are published on the Web. As you probably know, blogs contain philosophical reflections, talk about social issues, and opinions about everything under the sun. They are usually presented in journal style with a new entry each day, or almost every day.
Where does the money come in? Well that will come in time. My favorite source of income from blogging is from Google’s AdSense program. To join AdSense signup for an account and then place code into your blog posts. The code then appears as an ad once posted. When users click the ad, you make money. The price you make per click varies each time but can sometimes be more then just a few bucks. It all depends on the market/niche your blog falls into. See Google’s AdSense will pull ads relating to the content on your website.
Many of the most common blog software systems are free or inexpensive, especially when weighed against the cost of only using paid methods to attract visitors.
At the moment I’m using blogs here and there just to increase this very website’s popularity. But since I like blogging so much, I am going to keep doing it for the fun of it.
