Monetization tools for bloggers
When trying to make money online you must take into consideration what the blog is about, and experiment with the many monetization tools for bloggers. The de-facto standard always seems to be using Googleâ€™s Adsense platform, but even with high
volume and strong click through rates, you could still only earn pennies a day. Take for example if your subject was about online games, or free online games, it would take several thousand unique visitors per twenty-four hour period to make any decent money. Then the cost of bandwidth comes into play, and your cheap hosting provider may not allow unlimited bandwidth as they advertised previously.
Selling books, and DVDs that pertain to your subject matter via Amazon.com is another way of creating revenue streams, but at three to four percent in commission, a person would have to sell quite a lot of them to amount to any real income. You might make twenty-five cents to a dollar on each sale and that would have to be one expensive book to make a dollar.
There are several other ad-publishing companies that can be tried, but from this authorâ€™s experience, selling personal services, or a self-written e-books will be more profitable. A 250 page e-book on auto repair that sells for $29.97 and you get to keep all the money is much more profitable than having to sell sixty to a hundred books viagra as an affiliate of Amazon.
Text Link Ads is a popular alternative to Adsense and you can set your desired level of monthly payment for each link that an advertiser wants to publish on your blog. It is not written in stone, but monetizing a site before you start getting at least a hundred or more unique visitors per day is not advised. Then when you start putting up services, items, or Adsense on the blog, do it in a very reserved way. If the blog has fifty percent advertising, and fifty percent content it will normally turn people off, and they will not return.
Lastly, when a website or blog becomes a high-ranking authority for a particular niche, or topic, you will be approached about selling someone a link off the front page. Typically, a site that generates on average three hundred unique visitors a day, and ranks high for a particular keyword phrase, can charge six to eight hundred dollars a year for that link. Selling links is against the terms of service at Google.com so it would not be wise to advertise openly about this sort of commerce. You will only want to do this with maybe five or six with five or six clients, as it can drain your own authority if there are too many outbound links on your main blog page.
