"how to have a profitable blog"More and more people are writing blogs so that they can make money. Search engines just love fresh and new content, and a blog is a great place to put it. Because most people update their blogs very frequently, the search engines really do love them. This allows you to get a lot of free website traffic, which will allow you to make money with your blog in many different ways. Below are a few tips that will teach you how to have a profitable blog.

Find the Right Blogging Platform

There are many different blogging platforms that you can choose from to set up a new blog. It will be a huge help to you to find the right blogging platform in the beginning. By far the most popular blogging platform on the Internet today is WordPress (and you are reading a WordPress blog right now), and is one that I highly recommend that you use. Find the software that you feel the most comfortable setting up and using for your blog.

Cautions

You should avoid using free versions of Blogger, Weebly, or WordPress for your blog. This is because when you use the free versions, you do not actually own your blog at all and it could be shut down at any second without any reason at all. Imagine having a blog making you thousands per month, and then all of a sudden it is shut down without warning. There would be nothing you could do about it. Always use paid hosting because that means that you will own your blog and no one can shut it down on you.

Possible Costs

Some of the possible costs that you will have is purchasing a domain name. Domain names are typically very cheap and under $10. You will usually own the domain name for one year, and will have the option of renewing it for the same price at the end of the year. You will also need hosting, which will cost you under $5 per month to host your blog. Blogging will cost you a little money but not very month. Paying this money is very much worth it.

How To Make a Profit

Once you have your blog up and running and are posting new content to it on a regular basis, it is time to start making money with it. There are many different ways that you can make money with your blog. Two of the most common ways is Google AdSense and affiliate marketing.

Google Adsense is completely free, and all you have to do is sign up for it. Google will then look at your blog and then more than likely accept you. Google will then place ads on your blog that go well with the topic of your blog. When someone clicks on the ad and makes a purchase, you will make a commission. You can make very good money with Google AdSense if your blog receives a lot of website traffic.

Affiliate marketing is when you promote someone else service or product on your blog with a link that takes the buyer to a purchase page. The link is unique and also called a hoplink. There is code embedded into the link  that earns you a commission when someone makes a purchase after they click on the link. Using both affiliate marketing and Google AdSense on your blog is the best way to make good money with it.
