Blogging with Google Adsense in Nigeria
Blogging + Google Adsense - A perfect combination
Although I have talked about the many ways of making money online in Nigeria but of all thopse, one of the most profitable and effective way of easily making money online is by combining Google Adsense and Blogging.
This is by far the most effective and popular way to make money from web content. Whether is it a blog or online forum or other information website that you have, monetizing it with Google adsense adds value to your website. Google adsense is a programmed offered by Google to website owners who offer up ad spaces on their web for a fee. Thye make money either on a PPC(Pay Per Click) basis or on a CPM(Cost per thousand Impression basis).
While Blogging is a relatively new activity in Nigeria as a lot of internet users actually spend their time making use of social networking or checking emails. Blogging involves writing web content and publishing it on your web. It works in sucha way that it allows web content managers to publish new content periodically to their websites. This could be in form of latest news, product, service or other updates such as personal opinions, series of posts and so on. Blogging is interactive as it allows the bloggger to interact with his audience by making new posts and entertaining comments. Blogging is already a profession in developed countires with people doing it for a living as a result of the many opportunities it affords the user. Blogging helps a website rank high on search engines and get respected very well on serch results.
The Perfect combination
While Blogging affords the publisher the ability to draw in continuous and loyal traffic to his website, it also avails a wider oportunity in terms of advertising and this could be in form of direct advertising or just third party advertising. Due to the cumbersome nature of handling online advertisement and approvals, Google adsense offers bloggers the opportunity to not bother about all the stress involved in marketing and selling ads as all they have to do is copy and paste a code.
The thing about publishing a blog with Google Adsense is that it is easier and can bring continous and steady income to a website and in this way add value to it. Most professional bloggers after signing up with Google adsense and integrating the adsense codes on their template, just focus on writing and publishing newer content and yet they make money from it.
As your Blog grows
The more you make blog posts, the more content you website has and the more your site will appear in search results like Google. The good thing about most blogs is that they come with feeds or rss sitemaps which prompts search engines that an update has been made and this will quicken the time takes for Google or Yahoo to index a blog post.
The more prominent blogs get indexed by the minutes, others a daily while even others are in weeks. If you are just starting out a new website, chances are that you may not get indexed as fast as others. In some cases it may even take one or two months and it is all about that site credibilty and ranking which search engines attach to a blog.
