How to monetize my blog?

The most common and easy way to earn online money is to sign up Google Adsense. AdBrite, Clicksor, BidVertiser and Chitika are few more options. Then create tons of quality content. Don't worry if your are dedicated then you can do this in very short time. Your blog should be at least a 3 month old with quality articles to be accepted by these networks, Submit your articles to Social bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious, Stumbleupon, etc. You can also drive traffic through Facebook and Twitter. You earn money when somebody clicks those ads. But remember never click on your own ads. Otherwise you will loose your account and never get it back.

Another way is to become an affiliate network. Sign up to amazon or ebay, they are good affiliate networks and there are wide range of products.

If you want regular income from your blog then it should have a high page rank like a page rank of 3 or higher because advertisers prefer blogs that have a higher page rank. I suggest you should start with one or two methods that you think appropriate to your blog topic and then allow some time to assess how things are working. Then consider if you want to add other network or make some changes in your methods.

If you want to promote affiliate products then choose those products or services you believe in, and which are legitimate and honest. Choose products that bring value to your visitors and readers. And you will make a commission when others buy products from your affiliate links. Suppose your blog or site is about health then you can choose health products or ebooks to sell on your blog.

To attract visitors build a quality site. Update the content regularly, get backlinks and use SEO, keywords, meta tags, sitemap. Once you build the trust people will buy products on your site. But if you are totally dependet on ad revenue then just keep providing lots of quality content.

Experienced bloggers says never put all your eggs in one basket, so try different things. Make different blogs and experiment different things and see what works the best for you. In advertising network Google adsense pays more than others and in affiliate programs Amazon is the best even though its commission is less. Because people trust Amazon.
