Earn by Affiliating with Advertising Networks Such as Adsense, Nuffnang, Adbrite and Chitika.

Although this will not give you instant earnings especially in first few to several months (or perhaps never when you are not doing your assignments in raising the Page Rank of your blog sites), but once your websites have lots of visitors already, you will able to earn through these formula. Here are some advertising networks you might tap to bolster your earning while making your blog sites interesting and appealing. Google Adsense, Nuffnang, Adbrite and Chitika

Sign up for an account and get an access to the network’s code, then copy paste in your blog sites or blogs to start running advertisements or ads.

You earn two ways here; by click throughs and page impressions. Click throughs are the number of times people click the ads installed on your site or blog. Impressions are reckoned by way of the number of times the ads is loaded on your sites.

Earn by Sponsored Posts

This is my favorite stuffs in blogging. These are blog entries paid for by advertisers while they give you writing tasks promoting their products, services or websites. The sponsored posts may contain links to the advertiser’s websites, some key tags and with required number of words on it as requested. In order to get the chance to earn using sponsored reviews, you need to enroll your blog sites to PayPerPost, PayU2Blog, Blog4Reviews and SponsoredReviews. You are paid by writing assignments given to you by various advertisers or sponsors depending on the type of your site. Payout usually starts from $5 to about $200 to $300 per web post.

Our three websites which are all just Page Rank 1 earned a combined $55 dollars this month ($30 from SponsoredReviews, and $25 from PayPerPost), not bad, since we just started accepting sponsored posts. Moreover, we haven’t enrolled yet our websites in PayU2Blog and Blog4Reviews. Be careful, some sites that accept blog sites are hoax. The sponsored posts may have negative impact, for incoming links of other websites will be anchored to your sites. This is just okay since blog sites are built to get some sponsored reviews to earn. In order to overcome this you need to promote well your websites using various SEO techniques to recover any Page Ranking points drained from your websites. Although it may have some negative effect to your websites, there is something good with sponsored posts such as your contents and traffic will be boosted, and may enhance the reputation of your websites.

You may also consider this, to start reaping the benefits of having sponsored posts in your sites, you may encounter a lot difficulties at first since it may take about three months or so, to earn Page Ranking status. By the way the Page Ranking of websites Google wise is updated every three months. To give you an example, two of our websites earned Page Rank 1 status in less than four months while the other one became a Page Rank 1 website after 7 months. Thus earning Page Ranking is erratic and it will depend on how much effort and techniques you put on it. Bear in mind that most of the websites that allows bloggers to acquire sponsored posts requires blog sites that has at least a Page Rank 1 status.

Here are some tried and tested techniques and tips to improve the Page Ranking of your blogs or blog sites:

Here are some tried and tested techniques to enable your websites to gain higher Page Ranking:

  1. Quality Content – Your websites should be teeming with rich contents and free from plagiarism. The blog entries should at least contains 200 words, remember that the longer your blogs will be the better it gets.
  2. Promote your blogs and blog sites using SEO techniques.
  3. Use keywords and key phrases very well.
  4. Traffic will play a vital role in helping your blog sites earn Page Ranking. Find time to read this link: how to make money blogging tips to get an idea on how to drive traffic to your websites.
  5. If you want to grow as a blogger, you must do your best to protect the reputation of your blog sites. Feel free to visit this link: dos and don’ts of blogging to maintain and enhance your reputation as a blogger.
  6. Keep posting articles, to keep your blog sites updated.
  7. It is wiser if you just concentrate on a single niche so that you’ll able to strengthen your tags and key phrases further.

Most of these tips are also applicable to your Hubs in HubPages, since a blog and a hub share a lot of similarities.

Blogging is like planting mango trees, as your blog sites ages and the same time you maintain it thoroughly well whilst implementing SEO techniques, you will definitely reap the fruit of your labor in the years to come.

Remember that, the greater blog sites’ Page Ranking the greater it can generate money for you, especially with sponsored posts.
