Well, as for me I have given you enough information on how to start a nice blog. Now you know what to write about and how to write short, but informative posts. That’s why I want to tell you how you can actually make money online blogging. Keep it in mind that traffic and Google PageRank (I will tell you more about that later) are the must have when it comes to monetization. Here are the steps to optimize your blog, so you can earn with it.
1. Drive traffic to your blog.
The most common traffic generators are forum, social websites (FaceBook, MySpace), social bookmarking sites (Delicious, Digg, StumbleUpon) and article submissions. These work best for short term traffic, but I will show you later on, who to get the most out of these.
2. Optimize your blog name to get more search engine traffic.
Search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask.com send 80% of traffic to my blogs. So that is vital to optimize your blog names. Do some keyword reasech and fit those into your blog name. Make those catchy, so users can remember those easily. Good idea is to keep your website description under 30 characters.
3. Set Advertisement on your blog.
This is the easiest way to convert your traffic to instant money. You can use such websites as Google Adsense, WidgetBucks and Bidvertiser to earn money per clicked link. Also you can sell banner ads to your website on webmaster forums like OnlineWebMarket.net
4. Do some link building to get Google PageRank.
The higher your PR is, the more money you can make selling backlinks. You can easily exchange links with other websites or blogs whichc cover related topics. Search engine will rank your blog by the quantity and quality of links pointing to your blog. That’s why it’s important to find some related blogs and offer a link trade (always works with new blogs)
5. Join paid blogging networks.
As soon as you get some traffic and valid Google PR, you can earn money by writing about other blogs on your website. You can earn up to 50$ per every review you accomplish. That is the best way to earn with a blog. Companies that pay you to blog include:
More is yet to come …
Conclusion : you can monetize your blog whenver you can. As soon as you get some good traffic and steady readers, it is the right time to monetize. Add some adsense or other CPC ads, sell 125*125 ads in your sidebar, but keep it as clean as you can. Making money blogging is a lot of fun, when you get hang of it.
