Different ways to monetize your blog

We are all looking to earn money from blogging. Here are a few ways to monetize your blog.


Building your blog may be a very personal thing for you. You can try and make your blog a money earning source for you too. People blog as a hobby as well as for making money from their hobby. This needs that you have a passion for blogging. Only your passion can stand you any chance of making any kind of money from your blog.

Earning from your blog is totally different from blogging, though it is its integral part. Why I am saying earning from blogging is different because, the earning part is based on a lot of technical things that one may not be proficient in. You need to have a thorough knowledge of gaining maximum traffic which translates to your earning. It requires SEO and keyword research among many other things.

Without proper knowledge of these things you can earn from your blog too. But then remember, your earning will be sucking. You really will be putting backbreaking efforts, investing a lot of time and still be earning nothing (as compared to your input). But there are some ways, which can help you in making some money from your blog. We are going to take a look at three such ways to earn money.

Ad Links
One of the most prominent ways to monetize a blog is using ad links. Blogs with even decent amount of traffic can get high earnings too.

Google Adsense
The most valued and sought after earnings program happens to be Google Adsense. Adsense commands the bulk of the internet advertising market. No wonder, people give Adsense the first preference. The reach and popularity of Adsense can earn you some of the most memorable online earning experiences.

But remember that Adsense has a lot of strict policies and there is hardly you can do in case you lose your account. There are examples of people being banned by Google Adsense and never getting their accounts back.

One of the prominent ad links options is the Chitika advertising network, which also happens to be a viable option for Google Adsense. People also prefer Chitika for the reason that one can run both Google Adsense and Chitika ads at the same time. So it should be a good decision to have both Google Adsense and Chitika running at the same time on one single web page.

That will bring in double revenue for you. However, here is a word of caution. Ad networks like Adsense or Chitika (or any for that matter) can change their terms and policies without prior notice being sent to you. So, you need to confirm before you take any decision.

Banner Advertising
Another option you can think of for online earning is banner advertising. It is one of the most widely used ad types today. Banner, as the name suggests can contain some graphics and text as well. It might fully be built only with graphics too. Banner ad can be created in simple “Paint” files to even flash and can be given some advanced animation effects as well. It makes this option worthwhile.

There are many companies that are looking for space on the web to market their products. So, if you have a blog or a web site that has the same product as that of the company, you stand to sell some space of your web page to the company through banner advertising. How much will that space cost depends on the amount and unique visitors to the blog.
In Text Ads
Some specific words, especially the keywords automatically get highlighted if they are in the database of the ad network. They appear on the web page in a different color from the others and it is easy to recognize them. Small information pops up when we move our mouse over those keywords. This is what “in text ads” is all about. There are a couple of well-known names in “in text ads” like Kontera and Infolinks.

There are upsides and downsides to these programs mentioned above. There are various thresholds and payment methods these ad networks use. So, keeping in mind and where you live and if the payment processor works in your country, go for the desired option. But yes, be a good registered member of any of the site you want to. Don’t forget to read the TOS before joining.
