Blogging for Profit

 Site Flipping Riches - make money with facebook

"blogging for profit"Many people have a blog but most don’t understand how they can make a profit with their blog. A blog that receives many visitors on a daily basis has the potential to make you very high profits. Search engines likes blogs that are updated very frequently, and this also gives you free website traffic. If you want to start a blog for profit, there are a few principles that you should think about when you are getting started.

Find the Blog Platform

There are many different blog platforms that you can choose from when starting your new blog. Probably the most popular platform on the Internet today is WordPress, but you can also choose Blogger, Weebly, or another platform. It doesn’t really matter which platform you select as long as you are comfortable using it.

You should, however, not use the free versions of WordPress, Blogger, Weebly or other services. If you use the free version you never own your blog and have to follow their Terms of Service (TOS) for your blog. Many companies change their TOS without any kind of notice to their users. For example, if you have a blog that is bringing you in a great profit but it is not following the TOS, they will delete your blog in a second without any warning. You never actually owned your blog anyway so they can do whatever they want with it.

Costs of Blogging

A domain name may cost you around $6.00 and you will own that domain for one year. You will always be able to renew the domain each year for the same price. Once you have a domain you need to host it. This can cost you as little as $5 per month. There are some costs involved but it is not a large investment. The fact that you own your blog and no one can take it away from you makes it worth it. You can do what you want with your blog, and have no TOS to abide by.

Making a Profit

There are many different ways you can make money from a blog. You can use Google Adsense, which is completely free to start off with. You simply sign up and wait for Google to accept your blog. Google will then place ads on your blog in a similar niche as your site. When someone clicks on one of the ads and makes a purchase, you also make money.

You can also use affiliate marketing. This is when you promote someone else’s product or service on your blog via a unique link that takes the reader to a purchase page. There is a code embedded within the link that will earn you a commission if someone purchases a product or service from the link. You can use both Google Adsense and affiliate marketing on your blog to make a profit each month.
