Top 3 Ways to Make Money with Your Blog

Some people blog as a hobby or just for the fun it while others hope to be able to make a some money and possibly a profit. Creating a blog that creates a cash flow requires a lot of work, patience and luck.  There are a myriad of opportunities floating around on the Internet to make money with your blog.  I'm going to list the top 3 ways that I have had good results with.

1.  Google Adsense - Adding Google to your blog is simple.  However, getting the most from Google Adsense is another story.  Ad unit placement, size and appearance all have a direct relationship to how much you can make with adsense.  I will go into this topic more in depth in upcoming posts but for now here are a couple of tips to get you started.  Place ad unit above the fold (the top half of the page), try to place ad units on the left and ad units within the body of the text work well as well.  

2.  Affiliates - As mentioned in my previous post "Affiliate Marketing Companies" signing up with affiliate groups such as Commission Junction, Linkshare and Clickbank can also result in increased earnings for your blog.  

3.  Pay per Review Sites - There are several sites in which you can enroll that will pay you to write a review for a company's product or service. I have had great success with Social Spark.   View my list of product review sites for more information.


  1. Good suggestions. It is a balance though to build your blogging audience while not turning into an infomercial.
