How Many Ads On Your Blog Are Too Many

When I started blogging I read what Google Adsense allowed and what they recommended. I felt from the beginning that I did not want to draw too much attention to the ads on my blogs. I wanted there to be some so that if someone is interested they can click on the ad and check it out. Some of the ads I put on my blogs are associated with what the current post is about. I do after awhile remove those ads as I write more posts. There are some occasions where I have tried either using a larger ad size like 120 x 600 where multiple items show up. These can be with either Ebay or Amazon, but as far as Google Adsense goes they are just click type ads. I have also tried smaller types ads or just ads that will fit on the right side of the posts.

Some Of The Top Money Making Blogs On The Internet

There are quite a few different Blogs out there that make quite a bit of money. What I see is that it takes time and effort to make a popular blog. Your popular blog will then make money. Well that's not always true, you see you have to get the people to like what you promote. That way they will purchase what you are promoting. The best thing I can say is be honest in what you are promoting. That is why in the blogs I write I try to make my posts on products that I know about. It may be a hobby or what I have done in the past or what I do in the present.

Don't Stop, Try New Things With Your Blog

My motto is don't give up the ship. Try new things with your blog. Look around the internet and see what other people are doing. Seeing what others are doing may spark some new ideas to try. I am not saying copy someone else. I am saying look at what someone did and then expand on it with your own ideas. You never know one simple change may change everything with your blog.

Keep Your Blog Ads In Time With The Seasons

Sometimes one thing I have been trying to do is keep my blog ads in time with the seasons. In other words if it were summer I try to use ads with products associated with summer. For example items such as water slides, pools or some water related product. In October I tried to use items that had to do with Halloween, such as costumes. Christmas time in December is a little different. There are so many products I try to make them more of a popular items such an an electronic item. There are of course plenty of items that can be used all year round, but I like to go with the seasons.
  This was just a small post, Happy Holidays !!!!

What Should I Blog About

Whenever I talk to someone about writing a blog they always respond with I don't know what I would write a blog about. My answer is write about your favorite hobby, something you like or something that makes you happy. The nice thing about the blog is that it can be whatever you want it to be. It does not have to be anything perfect. It can be your own thoughts on various subjects. Most of all make it fun, because if you don't you will probably get bored with it and stop.
  So yes my advise is to make it fun. You never know you may just end of being the person with the most popular blog on the internet. Try to keep your subjects of your posts up to date. In other words do some research on your subjects on the internet. Also make sure what you blog about is honest. If you write about something that is not true people will see right through you. Always write the truth about your subject. That honesty is what will keep people coming back for more.

How To Get That Traffic To Your Blog

One of the most important parts of your blog is getting the traffic to your blog. If you don't the traffic then you don't have the possibility of getting clicks on your links and ads. If know one comes to your blog then you won't make any sales off amazon or ebay or whatever ads you may place on it. So the main point is attraction to your blog. Remember to use plenty of good keywords and good keyword sentences. That way you can get your blog posts seen on the web.
  Okay so you are most likely asking yourself how do I get the traffic. Well there are quite a few different ways of getting the traffic to your blog. First make sure you keep up with writing posts as often as possible. They don't necessarily have to be long winded posts either. In fact I would not make them too long, because the reader may get bored, leave and not come back. Make the subject relevant to your site. Write posts that may help someone solve a problem. For example say you are blogging about compu…

Placing An Amazon Store On Your Blog

Recently one thing I am trying is placing an Amazon Store on my blog. It is a fairly new feature from Amazon Associates. It looks like a web store where you can display different products that are associated with the content of your blog. For example on my Ham Radio Blog I have various Ham Radios and other Ham Radio Equipment. The products can be added and saved in a shopping cart. It is done through, but looks like a web store that you may see on someones website. There is a picture of the item, the price and maybe a short description of the item.
   The picture above is what the aStore looks like on my blog. I guess time will have to tell on whether it chases people away or becomes popular. I like it because I do not have to put a bunch of ads all over the place and clutter up the blog. Besides I do not want anyone to think my blog is just about selling items. The ads for Ebay, Amazon, Adsense and Chitika are mainly for people to choose if they want to. Also they can g…

Google Adsense And Placing Ads On Your Blog

I was searching on the internet and came across some videos on placing Google Adsense Ads on your Blog. So I figured I would share them with my readers and anyone who comes across my blog. I know the video below is on one of my other posts, but I thought it was worth seeing again.

Just Remember It Takes Time For Your Blog To Become Popular

Just as the title of the post says it takes time for your blog to become popular. Most of my blogs only get a few people a day. In fact my Ham Radio Blog started to become more popular when I had 45 to 50 posts. Basically the more content you put out on the internet the more traffic you will get. So my advise is make sure your posts are associated in some way to your blog title.
  Also make sure that any ads you put on your blog whether they are with Ebay or Amazon have something to do with your blog itself. If you write posts that have nothing to do with your blog title people will most likely wander away. Also make sure to put those keywords in there that Google and other web searchers will look for. The more keywords you use the better the chances that someone will find your site. Make sure they also can leave comments. If anyone leaves a comment looking for a response make sure to try and respond. That way people know you care about what you write and that you are about your rea…

Make An EBook To Sell On Your Blog

I have been looking around to see what other bloggers are doing to make some money with their blog and I see people making E-Books to sell. Generally they don't sell for a large amount of money. If you write enough to have a good variety the money may add up over time. It could just another added feature to the blog you already have. It seems that the more variables you provide to your readers the more your blog will become popular. As far as I see it any idea is a good idea for you to attract people to your blog.
  There plenty of places to learn about how to write your first e-book.  I found at

Other Ways Of Monetizing Your Blog

There are plenty of other ways to monetize your blog. One is by using social media such as twitter and facebook. I will sometimes put out a tweet on twitter about a post on my blog. This is then linked to my facebook page so it puts it there as well. I have found that when I do this traffic seems to pick up. I have also gotten more followers on twitter that way. The more people follow you the more your information is out on the internet. More traffic to your blog site may mean more clicks on advertisements as well as whatever else you are advertising.
  Now there are other types of social media out there besides twitter and facebook. One thing I have tried is placing a social media gadget. Another way of earning some money is buy selling a product that you have made. For example if you are building Ham Radio Antennas you could advertise those. One idea is that if you have a website where you are selling your products, you could place a link to your website to direct traffic there a…

Google Adsense For Your Blog

How to Make Money With Google AdSense
byGreg Davis

  The third way to try and earn some money from your blog is with Google Adsense. Before you are accepted to Google Adsense you need to have a good amount of content. If I remember right I had about 10 posts and then I had enough content. Google Adsense finally accepted me and then I put some ads on my blog. You can only have up to three ads on a blog. So my question was where should I place the Ads and what size ad should I use.

Using Ebay Partner Network On My Blog For Earning Money

The second way of earning some money on my blog by using Ebay Partner Network. The Ebay Partner Network is another ad related type of monetizing your blog. Basically you place ads in different types and sizes of blocks or banners on your blog. They can pretty much be anywhere on your blog. It has been found that the ads do the best on the sides of the posts. They do better from what I have heard on the right side of the post. This apparently because people read from left to right. Also the bigger the  ad the more it will catch the readers eyes. I have not been able to place a picture of the item in the blog as a link the way that I can with Amazon Associates. So what I tend to do is place a link in a keyword or keyword phrase associated with the item or items I would like to direct the reader to see. For example here is a link that I may use Ham Radio Equipment. Just click on the link with your mouse. All these items are also associated with the topic of the post. Here is a link to …

Tips On Using Amazon Associates

I just thought I would give some tips on how I use Amazon Associates. It really is very simple to use, but you do have to think about what type of ads you use and where you place them on your blog layout. I have tried placing them in both the left and right columns. I have also tried placing a banner ad in the top just under the header. Another place to put a banner ad is between the posts on your blog. You should also consider the size of the ad especially where you place it. Here is a video below on how to sign up for amazon associates.

  They say that the size ad that does the best with Amazon is 160 x 600. The 160 is the width and the 600 is the length. Now I have tried a number of different sizes. Some are square and some are rectangles. I believe the idea of the bigger ad being better is a good choice and makes sense. It tends to catch t…

How To Make Money With Your Blog

I started blogging about a year ago and I love it. I have about eight different blogs at this time. For myself I have a couple different reasons why I like to blog. First I happened to read about blogging and how I might make some extra money. Everyone can always use some pocket change. Who knows your blog may become popular and you might make a good amount of money. The money part of things is just a part of what I do.
  As for me I like to share different things that are important to me. Some of these things are form my past and some from the present. Some are sort of a personal part of my like, while others are just hobbies of mine. Some of my blogs are about My Faith, Ham Radio, Linux and Ham Radio, Photography, Music, Electronic Component Repair, Toys, Where To Find Things Online and of course Wrestling. So as you see I have a real variety of things to write about.
  What I prefer to do is try to write at least one post a month. At first I tried to write as much as I could so I…
