Blog Monetization The Newest Source Of Income

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past several years, you’ve probably heard of “blogs,” which are essentially online journals that millions of people all over the world maintain. According to statistics, there are currently 71.5 million blogs online.

Pick your specialty, select a blogging platform (like Blogger or WordPress), and begin writing to jump on the blogging bandwagon. Your ideas and views instantaneously reach thousands of people with no effort once you press the publish button.

You can blog about almost anything, including shoes, iPods, food, and stuffed animals. Choose a topic that interests you and write regularly, and you will inevitably discover readers who will appreciate your work and return time and time again.

People are not grumbling about leaving their 9 to 5 jobs to pursue blogging as a full-time career.

Additionally, blogging is not just about exchanging ideas; if your site receives a respectable level of traffic, it may even help you pay your power costs. (Monetization can be difficult if there is only one reader of your blog—you.)

There are typically two ways to make money from blogging: either you make money from the blog or because of the blog. In the former situation, someone (clients or potential employers) may be able to offer you consulting and other lucrative jobs because you have a blog that displays your subject-matter expertise.

The second, more well-liked choice, which we go into more depth about, is how to monetize your blog directly through advertising, sponsorships, paid reviews, donations, or even the sale of goods (like T-shirts and mugs).

The grandfather of all advertising programmes is Adsense, which is offered by Google, the corporation whose name is virtually synonymous with internet search. As a system for contextual advertising, Adsense scans your website and serves ads according to the context. For instance, it’s unusual to see ads for food or cars on a website devoted to mobile phones; instead, you’ll likely find advertisements for mobile phones or items associated to them, such chargers and ringtones.

For starters, “Google” is a household name in India, which contributes to the enormous popularity of Adsense. They have a huge pool of advertisers, therefore there is less chance that the ad inventory will run out on your website. Because Google’s contextual advertising engine is reliable and well-known for delivering primarily relevant ads, discussion rates are high, which is great for both publishers and advertisers.

Similar advertising schemes for Indian publishers are anticipated to be introduced by Yahoo! and MSN in the near future.

For bloggers, Text Link Ads and Adbrite are also excellent cash streams. You put a link to the advertiser’s page on your website or blog, and you are paid for the duration that the link is active.

Affiliate programmes like those provided by Amazon, Commission Junction, and eBay are next on the list. These programmes only pay out when a click results in a sale. Although the payouts are greater than conventional advertising rates, the likelihood of receiving a review is not very high because many visitors may leave the advertiser’s website without completing a purchase.

In the blogging world, services like Payperpost and ReviewMe are also getting a lot of attention. Bloggers receive payments ranging from $10 to $250 for posting product reviews on their individual blogs. The blogger’s payment is based on a number of variables, including blog traffic and the blogger’s speciality. For instance, a parenting blog may have more traffic than a gadgets blog, or vice versa.

If you are ready to put up a committed and consistent effort, blogs have a great deal of potential for income. Some people have given up their regular 9 to 5 jobs to become full-time bloggers, and they aren’t complaining.
