Apart From Monetizing From Ad Companies, Here Is Another Means You Could Use To Make More Money Through Blogging.


Backlinks

Another blogger decided to share his experience of 7 years with +800 articles published on various blogs. This particular subtopic is connected with blogging, traffic and back links.

Everything this blogger said are written below. Read and learn.


"There's no miracle to making money in blogging; to make money, you have to work. More you work, more you'll get money. A blogger once said, "displaying ads is for lazy guys". He concluded that "Monetization with ads is the worst idea you could have". 

Why would A blogger say this?

Here is why:

Some Internet users, are usually pissed when visiting blogs with ads, and because of this, nowadays most browsers have native adblockers, and as a result, you'll make only few bucks with ads. Seriously, you deserve much more than this.

What's The Way Forward?

Good news, there's a smarter way to make MUCH MORE money with a blog. Here is how I make money with mine. 

First, chose the niche where you are an expert. No matter the topic, you must be very comfortable with. You must be able to talk for hours about your niche. There isn't better niches than others. The best niche is the one you really know. Don't blog on a trendy niche just for money, you'll never succeed.

To turn your blog as a cash machine, you need traffic. I mean lot of traffic. To get traffic, you need to publish content.l - lot of content but only high quality and regularly. There's tip how to get easily tens of ideas of fresh contents every day. Ok it's hard, there are competitors everywhere but if you're serious, patient and motivated, you can do it too. 

If you've published 150 articles in the last 12 months your blog could get around 35.000 to 45.000 visits per month.


Don't worry about Google for now. Google won't index your pages if your content is poor or is not read by visitors. But if you have excellent contents, you'll have readers, and if you have been approved by any ad network, your earnings could as well increase.

 This is how things work. Don't expect ranking on SERPs at the beginning. Be patient and work hard. Success will come.


Now, let's talk about big money.

Once your blog becomes popular in your niche, you'll receive offers from SEO agencies to publish sponsored articles. The firsts one will be poorly paid but if you keep doing a good job, you'll be able to claim higher amount for each backlink. 

Ok but how much can I expect?

As example, a sponsored article is paid up to $150 on my blog. Yes some SEO agencies have paid $150 for a backlink on my blog. Why? Because SEO agencies need blogs with quality traffic and they prefer specialized blogs without ads for their clients. 

Not yet convinced? I receive 3 to 5 requests / month for publishing sponsored articles on my blog. And I refuse any offer below $100.

Now, grab your calculator and compare with ads...


Finally, it is only a matter of choice. And you must chose wisely.

- Ads will give you few tens of bucks and a poor brand image, 

- An excellent job will give you higher traffic, revenue and lead you to success."


The blogger ended everything by asking, "What is your choice"? That indeed is a good question to ask. You can choose the way you earn. It's all in your hands.

I hope this article is has exposed you to so much that could bring about your success. Happy Blogging!
