Blogger Is All New - How To Make Money With Blogs

Hello Hubbers,

There is a new blogger in town. Google has updated their free blogging platform and I felt many of you article writers would appreciate learning some of the new features goolge has added to the free blogger service.

I've been using blogger the same way I use Hubpages. I create and write about many different subjects then submit them to the Search Engines and over time my blogs get indexed.

Every time I create a new blog with blogger and it's relevant to one of my hubs, I backlink my relevant hubs to my blogs and my relevant blogs to my hubs. Doing this does help your hub and blog get indexed to the major search engines.

Blogger has improved their free service. They have added many new features and options to let you create a professional looking blog.

One of the first features they have improved is the Template option. In the past you only had a handful of choices but now you get to choose a Template and change the main background color theme and add a background image.

The next updated feature allows you to change the body layout, footer layout and adjust the width. I personally appreciate the option to change the width.

Blogger has also added an advanced feature which allows you to create a blog so your blog does not look like every other blog created with blogger.

Using blogger as a way to make money online blogging is another free way for the experienced webmasters who does already earn money writing online but blogger is also an easy to use blog platform for beginners to start their Internet Writing Business. Using a free platform that is easy to use helps a beginner to learn how to blog to make money.

Advanced Features:

Text Color
Post Title Color
Link Color
Visited Link Color
Blog Title Color
Blog Description Color
Sidebar Title Color
Text Font
Sidebar Title Font
Blog Title Font
Blog Description Font
Add css

If you write articles online at Hubpages I would think you are aware that you can earn revenue with Adsense and Kontera. The past few months my focus has been Adsense and Kontera and each time I write a new Hub or blog I see my revenue increase each week. Like I said above, I use Hubpages and blogger for the same reasons. Blogger makes it so easy to place Kontera In-text advertising onto all of my blogs. When I'm finished creating my blog I then sign into Kontera, choose, create a name, click save and Kontera In-text advertising is added to my blog. It is that simple. I have seen an increase to my Adsense and Kontera revenue. Using Hubpages and blogger has helped me increase my revenue.

OK, that's pretty much it. This is a short and simple Hub but felt it was worth taking the time to write. I enjoy passing along my methods and techniques to inform fellow Hubbers how I continuously increase my revenue. Enjoy the freebie everyone and keep writing because continuous writing works.

      The pages feature is pretty cool and so is the new template designer. I was using it before when it was still in "draft" so I'm excited to see it be part of the feature set.

      Hi Norr4me,

      I do like the new blogger but I have not used the Amazon as of yet. I need to start using Amazon with Hubpages and Blogger. I should focus on it for a little while.

      Hey Mailxpress, I've written a few hubs about Blogger. I'm glad they are improving. Have you tried the new "Pages" gadget? They also make it easier to add Amazon products to your blog. Now we can create better, more professional looking blogs with them. I like all the new changes.

      Hi Patti Ann,

      Yes, blogger has come a long way. It use to be so limited. I used it twice this past week and being able to give each blog it's on uniqueness makes it so much better. Enjoy.
