How To Monetize A Blog Without Adsense

Image
It seems as though most of us want to put adsense ads on our blogs. Well the truth is you don't to put them on your blog unless you want to. I would advise leaving them off until your blog picks up in traffic. You see if you don't have the traffic who is going to click on the ad. You yourself can not click on the ad or you will be dropped from adsense.
 So what kind of ads should you put on your fairly new blog. I would suggest that you could put a amazon affiliate ad on your blog or a amazon astore if you are trying to sell some kind of product. Once again all sales revolve around the traffic. So your main concern should be twofold. First concentrate on writing really good content that has to do with your blog. Second work on getting your blog seen, so people may come and see your blog. Once traffic flow is achieved, them maybe add one or two adsense ads to your blog if you desire.
 You see these types of ads are click type ads. In other words you make money when someone cl…

The Holidays Are Coming

Image
Sometimes you may have to base your blog or website at a certain time of the year. In other words if it thanksgiving pick items to sell based on thanksgiving. The next big holiday is obviously Christmas and that means lots of choices for gifts. I would suggest to see what is trending at places like amazon and ebay. Find a product that is similar to what you blog is about. For example if you are a survivalist put a few ads or links up for survivor type items. Just remember not to overload it.
 Another idea to try is to send out some rss feeds. Generally I look for the items that are closest to my wix and weebly websites. I create an rss feed with ebay and then send it out using something like Bitly. These are sent out on multiple twitter accounts at the same time. I also try to include my website addresses in the tweet. Just remember with twitter you only have so many characters to work with, so make it work for you. Also do not bombard twitter with lots of tweets or you may be remov…

3 Things You Need Content Content Content

When writing your blog make sure to have plenty of good content. If you just shove a bunch of junk on a page your readers will get bored, leave and never come back. If they spread the bad word about your website you might as well cash in your chips and start over. Give your readers something good and interesting to read about. I would also try to add a little humor in your post. When people laugh it makes them happy and they will want to come back for more.
 Most of all don't put too many ads or banners on your website. If you do that it will give your readers the impression that all you care about is trying to get the almighty buck. If you have a webstore in mind why not make a free website with wix.com or weebly.com . Then you can put a few links to your website in your post or off to the side of the post. You may also put a link to your blog on your other website. This way you keep the two way traffic going and that helps in the ranks.
 Most of all don't give up. I myself …

How Do I Get That Traffic To My Blog or Website ?

Image
Yes as I read posts on various websites going back a few years we all want to know how to get that darn traffic to your website or blog. It isn't terribly hard, but it does take some effort. I still use Facebook, Twitter and My Google Account to spread the word. I have other pins on pinterest and I am thinking of making some kind of a youtube video. Just don't be a spammer and think about others. One of the things I have noticed is that there are many videos that are somewhat misleading. I have watched them only to find out that they are really trying to push a website with some kind of program. This kind of thing goes all the way back to the beginning. I guess we are always trying to make a buck no matter how deceitful we are. I do not follow that rule and believe in being honest. Like I have told others if you have to lie to the customer to sell something, there is something wrong with your business.
 So the moral of the story is don't give up the ship. I have had time…

Wix, Weebly or Blogger Oh My !!!

OR

OR



 You know some of us can not exactly afford to shell out lots of money to build a huge website. Well fortunately you don't have to put out tons of money to get started. Yes you can use blogger and I have been for the past few years. You are probably asking have you made tons of money. Well I have to sit back and laugh, because the answer to that is a big fat no. Yes I have sold a few things, but they don't amount to much. Your next thought is why don't you give up. Well if I give up who is going to give my advise.
 Okay so what I have done recently is to look into free websites with weebly and wix.com. I have found that I can make a pretty decent website with both of them. So that is exactly what I have done. I created a few different websites with affiliate stores in them. I also have some of my google adsense ads and amazon ads running. I am also placing links to my ebay affiliate sales as well. I do a little tweeting on twitter and some facebook paging. It does see…

Getting Traffic To Your Blog Can Be Tough

Image
AND
 One of the hardest things to do is get the traffic to your blog. One of the ways to achieve getting traffic is by using social media. This can be done by using Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. There other forms of social media that you can use, but just make sure you are not spamming. That is definitely a no no when it comes to social media and you will get kicked off.

 Now if you are looking for another way of getting traffic try using a hosted website. I have been building some websites with WIX and WEEBLY. I am building a free website that is associated with the same topic as my other blogs. I then set it up with some good content and build upon it. I am also choosing to blog on them as well and that way hopefully they will be seen by google and others. The next thing I am doing is putting a button on them and placing a link to my other blogs. This way people can travel back and forth.
 What I also doing is using bitly, tinyurl and  socialoomph to put out tweets with twitter a…

Affiliate Marketing Made Simple

Image
In today's world people are trying many different ways to make money or they are trying to make a career at it.One of the most popular affiliate marketing websites is clickbank. These are all digital ads that take you to a website that explains or promotes what the product is. Now one issue that does come up is that some of these places may be a scam type of sale. One of the most popular that I have seen so far is the survey type of ad. They put out a video, lots of data and sometimes a video. Now not all of these are scams and it is up to the viewer of buyer to determine if it looks too good to be true.
 One thing I have done is view the ad before promoting it. The next thing I do and would suggest anyone to do is use google as the search browser. Type in the name of the ad or place that puts the ad out and do a search. Chances are you will find reviews that are good or bad. Then you can determine whether you should pursue it as a means to make some extra money. I would also say…

Make Money With Surveys Online

Image
Everyone today is looking for a way to make extra money. They especially want to do it online from the comfort of their own home. I say there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I myself have tried various things to make extra money. I write a number of blogs for the main reason to help someone in some way. I monetize the blog in different ways to make some money along the way. I don't believe I will get rich from it and I am not worried about that.
 Okay so what are some of the ways you can try and earn some money online. Well first you have the blog and monetizing it with different kinds of ads for products you promote that are associated with your particular niche. Whenever I have looked around the internet I find the website for  doing surveys. In fact I have tried a few of those and never really had success, so I gave up and moved on. I am sure there are some survey websites that are legitimate. I have seen some where they seem to good to be true. In fact if you read the r…

How To Make Extra Money

Image
While we are working on our blogs trying to make them popular we may be looking for ways to make extra money in our spare time. I know myself I have searched all over the internet for ways to make money at home. The problem we all run into is that most things on the internet are scams. Now there are websites out there that have lists of websites that are nothing but scams. I remember finding places that looked interesting and then I found them listed on the scamming sites. It saved me alot of time and headaches.
 It seems as though the most popular way to make money is by doing surveys. Once again you will run into the problem of what is legitimate and what is not. What I tend to do is place in my search the word legit or legitimate. This seems to bring up the good websites, but you still have to protect yourself. Again what I do is then type in the website name with legit or not in the search window. I most likely will find websites where they have done reviews on them and then I c…

Blogging And Social Networking Go Hand In Hand

Image
In today's world of blogging we are forever trying to get more and more traffic to our blogs. It can be quite a struggle trying to achieve this. You need to find every available root to get that traffic and keep them coming back for more. First you got to get your blogs and posts out there in the public eye. So think about what you are going to do and then set your mind on doing it.
 Okay so exactly what social networking are you going to use to get traffic. Well your not going to use just one your going to use as many as you can. What I have found is that using Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest I have gotten good traffic and it seems to be getting better. It does not mean you will have instant success unless your one of the lucky or special ones.
 So what I do is after I write my post I put it on all three social networks. For example on pinterest I create a board that is associated with what my nice is about. In other words I use ham radio. I find a number of people to follow an…

                           WordPress VS Blogger by anis jerbi
 In the world of blogging we all face various problems. Yes one of the biggest is how to get that darn traffic to our websites. Well as I have stated before is to one be honest and try to write good content. Put yourself in the place of your reader. Would you actually read this or would you move on to somewhere else. If you are promoting something make sure to thoroughly learn about it, maybe use it and then write about it. Also don't give up the ship.
 Okay back to the subject at hand. We all come to a point where we try to decide if we should use Wordpress or Blogger. Well if you are going to use wordpress and want to monetize it you will have to pay a small fee each month. If you are using blogger yes it is free, but there can be a price to pay. What I am talking about is the possibility of it being taken away. I can say from first hand experience this does happen. When it does happen it happens very fast.
 I had one…

Make Money And Become Rich

Image
Okay so are you going to create that overnight success blog that make millions of dollars. I would say most likely not. But don't let that stop you from trying to make a good living. Some say do not write your blog to make money and I have to agree with that. Make the purpose of your blog to help someone in some way. Write about whatever you are thinking about and be sincere. Believe me people will see right through you, leave and never come back.
 So you probably are asking what am I supposed to do to make money. Well first concentrate on writing some good content. Sure so of your posts may not be that interesting, but whose life is always interesting. No we are all pretty much average Joe's going about are daily routines. I know my days are usually quite boring, but every now and then something happens and you just have to share it. Yes there are the magic words share it .

Yes you can click on the picture ad below and maybe you will hit the jackpot. Go Ahead and Give It A Tr…

Give Clickbank A Try

Image
Clickbank is just another way of putting ads on your website or blog for someone to click on if interested. If you decide to do this I would only use one or two ads at a time. You do not want to come across as that is all your trying to do. If money is your main goal I am sure people will go the other way. Then at that point you are not going to have any chances of making money. Plus you may lose all your loyal readers.
 Yes your first goal is too put out some good content. That content should help the reader in some way. It can be a how to type of post, a review on a product or just information that may provide help with a computer problem for example. Okay so below is an example of how I make some of my clickbank ads. I also try to gear the clickbank ad towards what my niche and post are about. That way it may provide some useful information and that's what it's all about.

 What nice is at clickbank you can view all kinds of ads, so you find one that fits your niche. Once a…

Work On That Content For Your Niche Post

Image
Don't try and rush things when you work on your post for your niche. Take your time and read it a few times to make sure it makes sense. I know my self I get an idea and I just want to get it done as fast as possible so I get it published. Well lately I have found that if I take my time and think about it my post comes out better and makes it better for the person who is reading it.
 I have found that if I write some things down, go away and work on it a few days later I may see how I can move things around on the page to make it look better. Maybe I may find a few pictures to add or maybe a video or two that add to the content. There are all sorts of things you can do to keep someone interested in what you are doing. Put yourself in the place of the reader. In other words would like to read what you have written.
 For Gods sake use a sense of humor sometimes in what you are writing. We have all done some crazy things in our life. I can remember when I was standing on a ladder s…

Don't Over Monetize Your Blog

Image
One thing I would recommend is not to over monetize your blog. You see you do not want to take away from the reason you are writing your blog in the first place. What I like to do is have a few different blogs on different topics. Then I try to utilize the various types of monetizing with the topic or niche. if you do too much monetizing on your blog you could get hit with spamming and your blog could be locked.
 Okay so what are the various types of monetizing that you may be able to do. You may use Amazon Affiliate and Adsense Ads. Sometimes I may put some of the Amazon Ads for items associated with the Niche at the base of the post. This way the reader can see some items and have the chance to search for more if desired. The other item I ad are at least three adsense ads. You can place them where you want, but it is a good idea to place them in areas where they may be clicked on. Certain areas are shown to be better than others. You can read about this on the internet and I would…

Pick A Niche

Image
This is one of those things where some people have problems. The first question is how do I pick a niche. Then should I just look for a popular niche that seems to be making money. Well first of all you should pick a niche about something you like. It can be a hobby or just something you have a good interest in. The problem is if you just pick a popular niche then people may see that you just want to make money and you really don't care about the subject or your readers. That's when you will fight a losing battle unless your very lucky.
 I have done that with my blogs I write. I try to pick things that I am interested in and know a good deal about them. I also try to pick things where I can help someone in some way. That for example is why I write this blog you are reading. If anything on it helps someone then I am doing the right thing. The ads for various items are there to give examples and if someone wants to click on something that is their choice.
 Another thing that you c…

Watch What You Put On Your Blog Or It May Be Deleted

Image
This seems to be an ongoing problem where someones blog is all of the sudden deleted. Yes it has happened to me more that once. A few of my blogs were deleted due to possible spamming. I was working on a new blog and only had a few posts so far. I had just finished the third post, published it and just like that it was gone. I went back to the dashboard and found it was locked just like my other blog. Okay so now what is your next step to getting you blog back.
 Well with Blogger you have the choice to appeal the locked blog. Okay next they send you an email telling me in my case that my blog was tagged as possible spamming by their system. I only had some ads and links to amazon products that were related to the blog content. Well I did the appeal and a few days later I received an email that my blog was mistakenly marked as a spam violator. This has happened with three of my blogs and all were reinstated. But with the current two they reinstated them and locked them again the follo…
