A lot of people think about making money by blogging and don’t know where to start and what methods to use.
There are loads of different strategies: affiliate marketing, articles writing, advertising campaigns etc. But all of them require traffic. A lot of traffic. And traffic requires your time. A lot of your time. So basically, you have to sit in front of PC almost every day, write interesting articles in order to make your blog popular so visitors will keep visiting you.
I’ve tried all of the strategies and found the best one for making money by blogging (well, at least for me). Now, at the moment the money are not big (I earn about 70-80$ per month from two blogs), but I don’t have to sit in front of PC every day. In fact, I post one new article on my blogs once per 2-3 months.
The strategy is extremely simple and requires very small amount of effort. I sell a place for links on my blogs. For doing that I use two online agencies: Link Worth and Text-Link-Ads.com.
Link Worth is really good and I get the main proffit from them. They offer a lot of helpful settings, you can earn not only from links, but from writing articles and sometimes you can earn over 40$ for 300 words article there. Really good offers and prices. The main their requirement is your blog must have at least 19 posts.
Text Link Ads is not so good and it sells words inside your posts. If the advertiser wants to optimise his page by using keywords, he can buy he relevant keyword on your blog. The profit is not so good as with Link Worth, but I get 15$ for three words.
And the best thing is – they pay monthly. So if you sold a place on your blog, you know that you will be getting money up until the advertiser decides to remove the link.
Now, here comes the interesting bit: the price for the links depends on your blog PR (page rank). From my experience you can earn good money if your blog has PR3 and higher. But that doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to earn money if your blog has PR2 or 1.
How, to get PR2 or PR3? It is not very hard. All you ave to do is to submit each of your post to Social Bookmarking Services. I use SocialMarker.com for that. This site allows you to submit your post into 50 social bookmarking sites. It will take some time for you to register in all of them but it is worth doing. If you submit every article you have in to all of them, you will get some backlinks and Google will give you higher PR. Easy.
So let’s imagine you have one blog with two links and it brings 30$ per month. That’s fine isn’t it? But you can spend some time by creating some more blogs. Let’s imagine, that after one year you have 5 blogs with 2 links? This is 150$. Plus you can add Addsence on all of them and it will give you some more extra money. With five blogs you will be able to earn about 200$ and you won’t need to sit in front of PC every day. Only once per 203 months you can write an article and submit it.
This is my strategy for making money by blogging. Please fell free to ask any questions you have and I will do my best to help you.
