There are lots of ways to monetize your blog once you have a good number of visitors to your site. One of the most lucrative ways also happens to be the easiest.
Having a large number of visitors to your blog means that advertisers will pay to have their ads displayed on your site. The easiest way to start getting paid from advertisements on your site is to join Google’s AdSense program at http://www.google.com/adsense.
Once you setup your account on AdSense you will be given a code to add to your blog. This code will automatically display advertisements on your blog from companies who are part of Google’s advertising network. One nice thing about AdSense is that you have thousands of advertisers bidding to advertise on your blog, and all you have to do is add the simple code to your website. Once you do that the rest of the process is completely hands off.
Every time one of your visitors clicks on an ad, you get paid. Google collects the money from the advertisers and then cuts you a check (usually every month).
This arrangement is nice not only because it is hands-off, but because you are dealing with a reputable company that you know will actually pay you and on time.
How much can you make?
The amount that you can make from AdSense depends on three factors:
1. The topic you are blogging about
This is the first and most important decision that if you make a mistake about a lot of things may go wrong. What I mean is that, if you choose the wrong topic then you begin walking down the wrong path and it might be months before you even realize what you have done and change direction.
Here are some common mistakes people make when choosing a topic to write a blog about:
- Don’t pick a subject just because you see others make money writing about it
- Avoid writing about something you only are passionate but a lot of people are not.
- Don’t base a blog on a topic you know little about or have minimal practical experience in.
- Be careful not to write about too diverse a range of subjects, your blog must have a focus.
A small amount of highly targeted customers can lead to a six figure or more income. While it’s great to have 10,000 blog visits a day it doesn’t necessary mean you will make money from a higher percentage of these visitors, moreover, these are difficult numbers to reach and most people never do.
The blog you are on now only talks about how to start your own blogs, which means I target only those who are thinking on how to start their own blog like you reading this now (lol) and my major means of income. So target customers who are interested in your niche.
3. The number of visitors to your site
This one is pretty obvious. More people visiting your blog means more clicks on advertisements, which means more money for you.
4. The visibility of the ads
When you put the AdSense code on your site you have a choice of the style of advertisements that go on your site (large images, small images, text, etc.) and also where they are placed. The more prominent the ads are displayed the more likely they are to be clicked.
