Yes You Can Make Money On Your Blogs

There is one thing that almost every blogger wants and that is to make their blog more profitable. There are many ways that you can make money via your blog other than by doing paid posts. The most used method is by displaying Google Adsense on your blog. As you get paid every time someone clicks on an ad you want to make sure that you place it in a prominent position on your blog. Adsense is a great way of generating a passive income. Obviously the more visitiors you get the greater the potential of earning money via your google adsense and some other systems I will now mention.

Only recently I have been trialing another system similar to Google Adsense which is called Chitika. I must say that I am very impressed as so far it is producing 90% of Google’s income. The best thing is that you can use Google Adsense and Chitika on the same page which increases your chances of getting someone to click an ad. They also have something they call Chitika | Premium.

When a user comes from a search engine to your site, Chitika | Premium targets the ad to the exact keywords that were typed by the user. As the ad is targeted to the search term the user is much more likely to click on it and this has been confirmed by their high CTR — which beats other ad units, including Google AdSense. The beauty about this ad is that if a user comes directly to your site via normal methods, ie not via a search engine, the ad actually collapses and doesn’t show up at all. How cool is that? Chitika offers many other methods to monetise your blog and I suggest you at least check them out.

There are other Google type adsense ads including  Adbrite and Software AdsNow. You can also join many compaines such as checkmystats which allows you to select form hundreds of merchants to advertise on your blog. You can even choose to have rotating banner ads which is basically a banner which changes with each page refresh. This is an example of such an ad.

You can also display in-text advertisements by joing sites such as Kontera and Infolinks. Once their code is added to your site it selects keywords on you website/blog and hi-lights them. When a user hovers their mouse over the word a description comes up and if they click on it you get paid. The words on this post that are hi-lighted in blue are Infolinks ads.

I also recommend joining some reputable affiliates and promoting them on your blog. This can be done either editing your templates or recommending it in one of your posts, or even by placing a link at the end of your post. A good affiliate to join is LunarPages which is a web hosting company. Everyone who is serious about making money needs somewhere to host their site/blog and LunarPages is pretty good. They will pay $65 for anyone who purchases a package after clicking on your link.

For more affiliates you could join, check this site. One thing you should keep in mind is that you should not have to pay to join an affiliate.

  1. Is infolinks better than Kontera? It’s my first time to hear about infolinks and I wanna know more about them. Do they actually pay?

  2. Lucas, it is way too early to tell as I have been using it for roughly a week. I can assure you that once I make a determination about it that I will do a post on it.

  3. Thanks for the reply, Sire. I appreciate it. :)

  5. I have made a few bucks off affiliate programs on my blogs. I just left them up there, and lo and behold after a few months I’d actually earned something.

    I would suggest that if people have general blogs (as opposed to ones on the subject of marketing or seo) they put a dating site affiliate banner. These have wide appeal, and a pretty good ratio of sign-ups to upgrades. (Well, the bigger, better sites do anyway.)

    If you can find one with a nice chunky payout you only need a couple of upgrades before you get paid, too.

  6. Actually I did run one with a post on dating sites. Lots of clicks but no sign ups. I reckon you just have to be lucky to be able convert clicks to sales.
