Once you have a nice blog with some traffic there are lots of ways to monetize on it. One of the most functional ways of making money is through advertising. If you haven’t got your blog up yet, follow my Step-by-Step Instructions on how this works.
There are a lot of advertisers out there who will pay to have ads placed on your website. The most common of these marketers is the Google AdSense program which you can access here: http://www.google.com/adsense
When you set up your google AdSense you will get a code that you can add to your blog. This will display ads that are in keeping with your blog. Adsense gives advertisers the chance to bid for advertising on your website. The nice thing is that this works on on automation once you install the code.
How Does It Work?
Well, every time a visitor clicks on one of your blogs you get paid. Google collects the money every month and cuts you a check.
How Much Can You Make?
Well, the amount of money you make really depends on your visitors. Basically the more visitors you have, the more clicks people make which means more money.
Google also pays for simple visibility of ads. When you place ads on your site where they can be viewed easily, you get money. There’s just one problem here. You have to manage that delicate balance between getting lots of views and annoying your readers. This is really something you will need to experiment with to get that right visibility.
Your Blog Topic also Influences the Money You Make
Another factor that influences whether you make any real money on your blog or not, is the topics you use on your blog.
For instance, if you have a blog that talks about golf, you have a readership that comes from a large income bracket and advertisers will pay you more to advertise on your site.
On the other hand, a blog about Justin Bieber wont really help produce all that much as your audience is a younger generation, one that doesn’t have much in the way of expendable income.
These are the factors that determine the type of money you can make from your blog. The exact amount can be difficult to estimate, but a blog with a lot of traffic brings in several thousand dollars. Then again there are blogs that make much less than this, and then blogs that earn as much as $2 million per year from adsense revenue.
Just remember… This is a process that can take time, and tweaking of your blog. Just make sure you follow the prior steps in this tutorial so you have the best chance at creating an income from your blog.
