Do Not Over Monetize your Blog. If you add too many ads of different types you may drive people away. Remember your blog should be a way of communicating to your readers. They came there because they saw the post title on Google or Yahoo or some web browser. That caught their eye and sounded interesting to them. Maybe they were trying to figure out something like repairing something and now the first thing they see is a bunch of ads. Now they suspect that you are just trying to sell something to get their money.

The thing is to have your blog name something that will easily come up when someone is searching on facebook. For example I have my blog called The Ham Shack Shop on a Facebook Page. It seems to come up due to ham shack being a fairly common name in ham radio. Here are a few videos below on how to start your own facebook page as well as how to drive traffic with facebook groups.
