Blog Basics for Beginners: How to Make Money Online With Blogs – Step 1

Almost everyone has asked themselves this question at some point in their life, “how do I make money online?”

There are literally a million ways to make money online but this site is dedicated to just one topic. It is all centered on the following theme, how to make money online by blogging about something you like.

If you’re like me, you’ve been to a million websites and blogs with promises to make you rich if you just buy their “wonder” product or sign up to their email list for their “special report.”

I’m not going to lie; making money online with your blog is hard work… It takes time, dedication and lot of planning and footwork. The rewards far outweigh the costs because once your blog is up and running, you are towards the top of Google’s search with your particular keyword niche and you have a very substantial subscriber base, the passive income you will make from your ventures will be more than enough to support yourself and offer you more time in life to do what you want to do, no longer at the mercy of an employer.

There are millions of online advertisers out there and only a tenth as many online marketers, the odds are on your side, so if you want to start blogging about something you like and start cashing in on the lucrative opportunity to be rewarded for your efforts, follow me….

The first topic of conversation is something called “Google Adsense.”

This is by far the easiest service to become affiliated with if you want to place ads on your blog. Each time someone clicks on one of the ads you will receive a contribution depending on how much value is placed on the particular ad. After utilizing this service you may also want to diversify your advertising with Affiliate partners.

Adsense can become very profitable once your site has a high quantity of web traffic flowing through. Google offers another program called Adwords, a program in which you pay them to place links to your own site. Some people make money using Adwords to get traffic and then having that traffic flow thru their Adsense links generating them revenue.

I have found that the best traffic is the traffic you obtain for free through multiple links, high search ranking etc...

Chances are you will not make a lot of money through Adsense when you first set up your blog. It takes time and effort to build web traffic but it is manageable. When you hear stories of people making tons of money via Adsense and you know they haven’t been running their site for long, what they are probably doing is running multiple blogs and websites with multiple niches, each generating a small amount of revenue... Of coarse they wouldn’t want to tell you that because they’d like to stay ahead of the game and keep their competitors in the dark…

So, it may be time to make a choice… Do you want to make money blogging? Would you rather have one blog and spend years of hard work and dedication to make that money? Or would you rather create many blogs and spend substantially less time and effort to reach the same result?

That’s what I thought… Please check out the following article when you’re ready to get started: Blog Basics for Beginners: How to Make Money Online with Blogs – Step 2
