"make money blogging"Many people are realizing they can make money blogging. A blog is typically updated very frequently, which makes the search engines love them. As long as the content is unique and written in high quality, you can make good money with your blog. Below are a few tips that you can follow if you want to make money blogging.

Blog Platform

There are many different blog platforms available online. The top three most popular blogging platforms are WordPress, Blogger, and Weebly. By far the most popular of them all is WordPress. It doesn’t matter which platform you choose, just make sure you are comfortable using it.

If you are serious about making money blogging, you should stay away from the free versions of WordPress, Blogger or Weebly. You will not actually own your blog and must follow their terms of service. They can change the TOS any time they want. If you have a very profitable blog and do not abide by their TOS they can shut you down in seconds. Your blog is completely gone and there is nothing you can do about it. Imagine if you have a blog making a few thousand per month and it is all of a sudden gone.

Costs You May Have

Purchasing a domain name can cost you as little as $6.00. You will then own that domain name for at least one year and have the option to renew it at the same price for subsequent years. You can get your blog hosted for as little as $4.00 per month. For approximately $10 per month you can have a domain name and have it hosted.  You own this blog and can do whatever you want with it. You will have no TOS to follow and no one can take it away from you.

How to Make Money Blogging

Once you have a blog set up with content, there are several ways you can make money with it. Many people start out using Google Adsense, which is completely free and all you have to do is simply sign up for it. Google will then watch your blog and more than likely accept it. Google will then place ads on your blog in the same or similar topic as your blog. When someone clicks on the ad and makes a purchase you make a commission. In some cases, this turns out to be residual income depending on what was purchased. You must have a very large amount of traffic to make good money with Google Adsense

Affiliate marketing is another way people make money blogging. Affiliate marketing is where you promote a service or product for someone on your website by placing an affiliate link on it. This link is unique and is known as a hop link. There is a code embedded into your hoplink which earns you a commission each time someone clicks on the link and makes a purchase.

Many people use both Google Adsense and affiliate marketing on their blogs to make money. This gives you more than one stream of income. If you keep your blog updated on a regular basis this can turn into a very lucrative income for you.
