Here i have listed below some of the great and interesting ways to make money with your blog.
1- Google Adsense
Google Adsense, yes this is the most loved and best way of making money with your blog. Google adsnse is one of the most trusted and best way of making money with your blog, i know you have already heard about it, most people think that getting an adsense account is very hard but trust me there is nothing like adsense as my personal experience but it doesn’t mean that you can’t go with other alternatives. Getting an adsense account is not very hard, according to me adsense is much easier than other advertising networks in tums of getting a publisher account.
Note: If you have a technology blog and if you are applying for adsense and not getting approval then i think it could be much hard for you to get an adsense account now, because what i know the Google Adsense is not accepting any blogs and websites related to technology from the last one and a half year, the reason is increasing number of technology blogs on the internet and they don’t need more tech blogs they already have much.
2- Direct Advertisements
The second way is you can start your own advertising campaign on your blog for this you can simply create a page with any title like ‘Advertise With Us’ or ‘Get Advertise on this Blog’ and then just put some content on the page that what are your requirements and pricing for ads etc, you can set your own pricing according to your Alexa rank and Google page rank. after that you can add a banner on your blog with different sizes and you can take different prices on a monthly basis. If you have good Alexa Rank and higher Google Page Rank then advertisers will automatically contact you for advertise on your blog.
3- Sponsored Posts
This is another great way of making money through publishing Sponsored guest posts on your blog. There lots companies, blog owners, web sites owner who really want more exposure over the internet for this they some times offer sponsored guest posts to be publish on a site or blog and there is a website called PostJoint for bloggers and advertiser you can just signup for free add your site or blog on the site by selecting your blog category after the setup your blog you will start getting free sponsored guest post for your site you can also setup Email alerts in postjoint account so that you will never miss an opportunity.
Note: If you publish a sponsored guest post on your site then i would say that you should add a No-Follow to the link you will get in your sponsored post otherwise you site could be penalized by Google because Google don’t like this and you must add a no-follow into your link if you are publishing a sponsored post.
4- Sponsored Reviews
Yes you can make money by sponsored reviews on your site or blog. there are lots of companies out there who really want to expand there online business, so offer sponsored review in this way you have to write a review on your own site or blog related to companies products or services and then you have to add a link back to the companies site.
