Blogging isn’t always about being know among a few readers. If you are trying to use your blog to earn a little extra cash, you are probably going to have to out a little more effort into your blog than what you do now.
How many readers can you honestly say that you have? How many hits does your blog get on a daily basis? With the current numbers, do you think that you would be able to earn a consistent amount of money from them? It’s okay, most bloggers do not. The following is some helpful information that you can seriously use to make money from your blog.
– First, you should consider pay per click advertising. Most pay per click advertising involves the person who wants to advertise creating an ad for a major search engine. From there it is up to the search engine to place that ad.
– Here’s where you come in. On your side, you can sign up, for free, to this search engine as an advertiser. Basically, you are allowing the search engine to put the ad(s) on your blog site. I know you’re probably wondering where the money part comes in. Well, very simply, you make money when a reader clicks on the ad. That’s it! See how simple it is? That’s the simple part. Now comes the effort.
– In order to make the most out of the ads, you need more visitors. So you need to work on bringing more visitors to your blog. In order to do that, you need to regularly update your content. The more that you update what’s on your blog, the higher your search rankings are.
Generally, people tend to stay on the first page of their search results, which is the top 10 ranked sites. With fresh content updated every other day, or even every day, you’re rankings will go up, and you will draw more attention to your blog.
Another traffic building method you can implement is article writing and submission to article sites. You can write a good article, and most article sites will give you a signature box that you can customize.
This is where you will put the URL to your blog, and a short message. For example, if you’re blog is about weight control or weight loss, your signature box could say something like ‘John Doe’s weight loss blog can help you lose those pounds. Fell free to provide testimonials or questions to… a target=”_new” rel=”nofollow” blahblahblah”, naturally you would replace blahblahblah with your actual url information. It’s easy as pie!
If you follow one or both of the suggestions above, you should see a marked change in the amount of visitors to your blog.
Keep in mind that these changes do not happen overnight. Be patient. Give it a little time. If you find that it is still not having an effect, than you can begin looking for additional traffic builder techniques.
