Make Money from Your Blog!

September 11, 2007

You can make money from your blog, money from doing something you enjoy. If you own your own domain name for your blog, you can post ads on your blog. If your blog is hosted on a sub domain (.blogger etc) that allows it you can post ads as well.

Most bloggers start out on sub domains like or on most of these domains you can’t post ads, thats means you can’t make money from your site. That’s okay because your site should be built up and good before you start trying to make money.

After a year when most bloggers have a decent viewer ship, they may buy a domain name and transfer their blog to that site. Once that happens, they are free to start making as much money as possible. I recommend using Google adsense when you are starting out.

Adsense will look at your site and find things that may relate to ads that they have on their database. When people click on these ads, on your site you get some of the money for that click. Although it is a small amount, it adds up when you have a viewer ship.

You can also add referrer programs to you site, for example amazon’s referrer service. When someone clicks a link to an item on your website and it is part of the referrer service, you will get 10% of the sales, and if someone buys something expensive, you will get 10% of that. If they spend $100 you get $10. Sometimes bloggers can make a decent amount off affiliate referral programs alone.

After you get a larger page rank, other ad sites will become available for your use. Page Rank has to do with the amount of visitors entering your website and the amount of websites linking to yours.

It is possible to make quite a large amount of money from your blog, but don’t try right away, wait until you have a bigger site.
