How Every Blogger Can Finally Monetize Their Blogs

How Every Blogger Can Finally Monetize Their Blogs

You know me guys, how I am always on the lookout to find ways to monetize our blogs. You also know that when I find them I always share it with my readers. Well, I reckon I’ve found a site that will enable every blogger to finally monetize their blog. What’s better is these guys even have their own WordPress plugin, which only works once you join them.

Like most bloggers I have joined a lot of affiliates but the problem with most of them, like Commission Junction etc., is that once a member you still have to apply to become an affiliate of the merchants they have on offer. Not with these guys, once you join you instantly have access to 1800 retail merchants! Oh, what’s that. I haven’t told you who they are yet? Don’t worry, I’m getting there.  :smoke_tb:

Drum roll please. The site you can’t afford not to join is {SkimLinks}!

What SkimLinks Does For You

Using their unique technology, SkimLinks will convert your normal product links from any of their thousands of merchants to trackable affiliate links. Let me give you just a few

Become a Super Affiliate with SKIMLINKS!

examples.

Okay, they’re just a sample, but as you can see they’re all just normal links, so your visitors will have absolute trust in them because they can see they will lead to their respective sites. The magic starts when the click on them. Once they do the links will be converted into your trackable affiliate links and any sales made will earn you your commission. You could even link to the actual product, but naturally those links would be a lot longer. Check out my previous post for examples.

Just think, the above is just three examples of over 1800 merchants that members have at their fingertips. All you have to do is what you do best, write great content, they will do the rest. Like I said at the beginning you can’t afford not to join them.

As a member you can also turn on the SkimWords feature. I’ll let them explain this feature for you.

[redbox]”Never irrelevant, SkimWords focuses on specific product references and shows users exactly where they can buy the items mentioned.

Our innovative technology uses natural language processing algorithms to detect product references accurately in your content, offering geo-targeted, useful links for the user. As an optional extra, hovering over these links will show product matches and price comparison.

It augments, rather than intrudes on user experience: SkimWords is not an in-text advertising solution, but an ‘in-text product and price comparison’ service, aiming to help users discover and find the products they are reading about.

We are the only technology in the world that can detect granular product references in content, in real-time across multiple verticals, and link them accurately to the most relevant retailer of that product.”[/redbox]

This means that as long as their system can find the right words you could virtually monetize your whole site. As a test I have purposely not linke the words ebay and amazon.com just to see if they pick it up.

Earn with SkimLinks

Honestly I could go on for ages about what a good opportunity SkimLinks offers you as a publisher but I don’t think I need to. I’m sure you can see what a great opportunity they offer you. It will probably take a few days before you get accepted so I wouldn’t waste any time if you want to capitalize on the Christmas sales. I sure didn’t.

On a side note, SkimLinks will also work on other websites.  :thumbup_ee:

    That’s pretty cool Sire. Just two questions… First, are the links protected from passing page rank to keep from getting dinged by Google? Now that Google can read java-script and we know what they think about redirects, it’s something to look into. Second, not really a question though, is that we still need affiliate disclaimers to keep out of trouble there too.

    So that direct eBay link in your last post gives you a commission for sales made through that link? That is pretty cool if I understand right. What about any purchase on the site through that link? I might have a domain that could be the perfect fit for that plugin.

    1. I’m not sure about the first Brian, but you don’t have to worry about the second. The plugin actually provides a disclosure for you. You can see it at the end of each post. Click it to see it in action.

      Sure does. It even picked up the one in your comment. :drunk_tb: Yes indeed. Once you click on a link to a site any product on that site will generate you a commission. You just can’t beat that. I linked directly to the product just to make it easier for my readers to find it. I could have linked to the site itself and any products they purchased while on the site would make me money.

    First, Brian’s comment just threw me because I didn’t know Google was now looking at javascript. Second, he also brings up an interesting question about redirects, although in my mind I don’t see it as a redirect because it’s still going to the site it’s supposed to go to, just changing the link slightly. Google themselves does that off their search page; if you just clicked “copy link” and pasted it somewhere you don’t see the same exact link they highlight on their page.

    I saw another review of this somewhere; now it’s going to bother me that I can’t remember where that was.

    1. Exactly right Mitch, it’s not really a redirect because it’s not taking you from the page at all, just changing the link a little on the way. Don’t know why I didn’t pick up on that before.

      I know you’ve had some problems with CJ, I think it was them, well at least now you can have access to most of their affiliates and without ever having asked for approval.

      I’m joining all my sites with them. So far the only one they’ve knocked back is the sexual aids one but I expected that. They’ve even accepted my loadofbullshit blog. :drunk_tb:

        Okay, those big yellow arrows are starting to get on my nerve; 3rd time I’ve clicked on one when I wanted to make a comment. lol

        You’re right about the problems I’ve had with CJ, but I’m wondering, do you select the words and links you want or does it work like Chitika?
        Mitch Mitchell recently posted…5 Things About Writing That You Might Never Think OfMy Profile

        1. It can do both. In this post, apart from the ebay link I selected all the links and words.

          As for the arrows, minne’s over two inches from the comment field.

    Oh wow, this is perfect for building trust with your visitors. Affiliate links almost always cause people to turn away from your content. So having pretty slim links keeps them active, and they’re more likely to buy through your affiliate connections :). Good find!


  4. Twitter:
    Ahhh ok, I gotcha now. Sorry, random blogging at 4am and admittedly I zoned out for a portion of that. So it automatically pulls products based on the content of your article, and pretty links them to affiliate coded items on those sites. Neat :).

    1. That’s OK James, I’ve been there myself. :wink_ee:

      OK, it’s only partly right. I can pull products from the article if you have it set up that way. However, in this post I provided links to sites of three of their merchants, Marcy’s, Nordstrom and Canon. These are normal links that link directly to their individual sites. Once a person clicks on that link Skimlinks attaches my affiliate code to it so if they buy anything I get my cut.

    This is first time that i have herd about this skimlinks it will be better if you provide more details on this

  6. Hi there just been reading your articles and found some of them very useful, Im just wondering if you could help me out with a little question if you have time, I am a beginner to all of this, and I’ve got a couple of Niche blogs that I have played around with fake tan removal I have these set up for amazon affiliate program, and have had around 220 clicks in the past 3 days, however no sales, could you possibly take a look and perhaps point out how I can better arrange them to secure a sale? I check every day praying for my first sale I just don’t seem to be getting anywhere :( I really like the look of this affiliate program, is there any possible way of integrating it with hubpages.com? Thanks in advance

    1. It’s hard to say Steve. Perhaps they weren’t in the market for a fake tan removal at the time of the article. Perhaps they were but thought they could get a better deal elsewhere. Ebay perhaps? The fact that their clicking might mean they have an interest but not ready to commit. Give it time.

      That’s why I’ve recently been giving my readers an option and actually mentioning that they should try out ebay, Sears or Macys. If they take my suggestion and get the product at one of the other stores I still make my commission because I’m part of the SkimLinks Affiliate team. :wink_ee:

      As to integrating it with Hubpages, I can’t see why not as long as you can place their code on the required pages.

  7. Great post on monetizing your blogs! I am coming across this term “SkimLinks” for the first time. The main thing that attracted me to learn more about this is they have the ability to look like normal links at the same time gaining absolute trust of the visitors by diverting them to the respective sites. I need to do complete research before using for my blog. Hope it works out. Thanks for sharing this valuable blog post Sire.

    1. They don’t just look like normal links, they are until someone clicks on them. I know a lot of people will pass up this opportunity but those that do will be missing out on a great opportunity.
      Sire recently posted…Get Great Sound With A Cambridge Audio 100My Profile

    1. I’m pretty sure anyone can use Skimlinks as long as they have an online site where they can place their code.

  8. Making money with a blog is not that easy! I used to have to auto blogs and these were not generating alot of money nor the traffic I wanted. I finally gave up the blog articles, and instead I spend my time visiting other blogs and spend time on my first passion – cars! But, kudos to those bloggers who can make money!


  9. Twitter:
    I know Skimlinks but I never tried it. I believe that it could works very well with review site or product related niche website (such as gardening,cooking,technology).
    I believe that any kind of in-text advertising could be the future (and the present) because they’re more mobile friendly than old banner advertising.
    PS: the link enclosed on “Check out my previous post for examples” in the article, it seems to have some problems (the page exists but something inside linked Article does not seem to work well)
