Which Ad-Revenue Sharing Sites Pay

There are other ways to make some extra money with a blog or website for free. I have Bidvertiser ads in addition to Google Adsense, that pay me for every page impression and click. The link to Bidvertiser can be found at the bottom of the page. Payout is $10.00.

Another way to monetize a blog is to copy and paste banners from CPM or cost per impression programs such as Free20 and Itsptp. My visitors do not even have to click on the banners, I get page every time my page loads. It can't be any simpler than that.

A third way to make money off your blog is to add paying links to your pages. For this purpose, I use URL Cash. I get paid every time my visitor loads or leaves my site. For more information, click here.

How I Created My Blog And Added Google Adsense

These days, anybody can earn good money with blogging. You don't have to be an expert writer, nor a computer geek. You don't have to invest money, nor a lot of effort. All you need is a website or blog and a little bit of work.

Blog is short for web log. It is basically an online diary. Blogs provide news or commentary on any particular topic. Some function as more personal journals. A typical blog contains text, although some would have photos, videos, and audio files. Readers can usually leave comments, making blogs an interactive form of communication.

Marketing companies, such as Google, love blogs. Why? They can put ads in blogs for free. Good blogs build a loyal reader base, thus, increasing exposure to ads. It seems to be an easy way to make some extra cash so I decided to give it a try. First, I looked at several blogging services. The popular ones include Blogger, Word Press and Movable Type. Most of the blogging services available are free and simple enough that you can publish your blog in a few minutes. I, personally, use Blogger. It is owned by Google and very easy to use.

Here are the 3 steps I followed to create a Blogger account:

1. I chose a user name, password and display name.
Fortunately, the user name I had in mind was available.

2. I named my blog. Then created my URL.
I wanted a name that will describe the stuff I would put in it. I think I came up with a nice one. I love it.

3. Lastly, I chose a template.
There were really good ones to choose from. I went back and forth with a couple of designs but I am happy with my final choice.

I was then taken to a page where I started writing and posting. I played with different settings and formats and I still change them once in a while. I then signed up for Google Adsense. I found it in the Template tab in Blogger and the "AdSense ads" tab was below it. It took a few days for before my account was approved.

The next step was putting the ads in my blog and driving traffic to it. I have other posts pertaining to this topic. Google pays for every page impression and clicks that my blog generates. Thus, a blog will not be profitable unless people view it. Good content and traffic are the basic ingredients to making money with Google Adsense.
