Ways to Earn Money With Blogging
There are too many ways to earn money online, Blogging is a well-known method for those who want to earn online.
But there is a problem, that most of the blog owners don’t know how to make more money from their blog. They only know about 2-3 methods to earn money from blogs.
But this is not true there are too many ways you can earn through your blog and generate lots of earnings through your single blog website.
It totally depends on you which method you want to make your primary source of earning.
What is Blogging? Reasons why should you start a blog
Make Money Using Ad Networks:- Google Adsense
Google AdSense is the world’s biggest ad network. And I think every blogger definitely knows about Adsense and how Adsense pays you money.
Google Adsense offers money to the website owners and gives them a part of the share they earn from advertisers who want to advertise their brand or product on google.
Google uses the Adsense platform to show ads to the website by just pasting the ads.txt files into your website. After that, you have to paste your Adsence code where you want to show your ad.
How Adsense gives you money?
Google uses CPC (Cost Per Click) methods, After pasting your ad to the website, whenever a user comes to your site and then clicks on the ad you will get a commission from google Adsense.
The commission depends on how much money the advertiser gives to google for their one-click it may be 0.10$ or 1$ for a single click.
How you will get Approval for Adsense?
- Make sure you have your website should have a Generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD), or Country Code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD). Don’t apply with free domain names like Blogspot.com.
- Make sure your domain must be older than 3-4 weeks, if not it looks spam in front of the reviewer.
- Write at least 15-20 posts above 1000 words each to get an instant review.
- Don’t Copy or use images or content from other websites, it is against the Laws of Adsense.In case you can use images from stock photo websites like Pixabay.com, or Pixels.com.
- After that, you have to wait for 2-4 weeks to get approval. if you don’t get approval, customize your site content according to instructions and apply again in 28-30 days.
In case you don’t know about gTLD and ccTLD:
|Generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD)||Country Code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD)|
|.com (Commercial Businesses||.us (America)|
|.org (Organizations)||.in (India)|
|.gov (Government Agencies)||.co.uk (United Kingdom)|
|.edu (Education)||.au (Australia)|
|.net (Network Organizations)||.ca (Canada)|
Examples of Generic top-level domain and Country-code top-level domain
Google AdSense Alternatives
If you did not get approval from Adsense then you can also try other ad networks which give you a little less advertising amount compared to Adsense but a great option. Those alternatives are:-
Ezoic: It is also an ad platform you can use with or without AdSense approval, after absence approval it gives you more money but if you don’t get approval. It is also a good option to monetize your site. (Ezoic)
Media.net: Ad networks offered by yahoo and bing gives the money in the form of CPC (Cost Per Click) and RPM (Revenue per thousand impressions). (Media.net)
AdThrieve: There are minimum criteria of 100k page views per month to get approval. this platform is not ideal for beginners. but give you money according to CPC and RPM. (AdThrieve)
According to me, these three are good options in alternative to google AdSense, there are some more ad networks are available but those are not good enough to get the desired earnings.
The more traffic you will drive to your website the more money you will make. Ad networks’ income mostly depends on high traffic.
Earn Money With Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is a process where you can easily promote other brand’s products or services and you will get a certain amount in form of a commission for generating their sales.
You can choose affiliate programs according to your industry or interest, products or services program, etc.
