Making money with your blog

If you missed my series on how to start a blog from scratch to make money with here are the links to the series.

Making money with your blog -
So how have I been doing with the blog The Playful Pup? Well I have made a few dollars on the Google ads and I have achieved a Page Rank of 1 for the blog. With the Page Rank alone I could submit the blog to several of the paid to blog websites and do paid blog posts with it. For now I will just use it to show you, my reader how to develop your own blog for income.

For more information just read my blog posts listed under "blogging" (the categories are listed on the left hand column near the bottom). Read and learn.

wow. i am glad I found this site. I'm only earning around $500 per month on odesk, and this already takes 40 hours of my time a week! I'll try your tips, but I don't know where to buy a domain. Is wordpress.org good enough? I already set up a blog on wordpress.com, is this going to be okay? How much does a domain cost? Thank you so much. I've already bookmarked this site.

Hey Ybiang, glad you found the information helpful. If you want to make money from your blog stay away from wordpress.com If you try to make money with a blog on there, wordpress WILL shut it down. Find a good hosting company (I use Bravenet.com) and buy your domain name through them. If you open a blog on Google's blogger (this blog is on there) then you can buy a domain name through Google for $10 (good for one year).

I've already purchased a domain from blogspot.com. Would this be okay? :)I wanted to try the blog sites you were talking about on your other posts, particularly the one you mentioned on how people could make money from their blog. Since this paid to blog site has to approve blogs before accepting them, is there a possibility for my blog to get approved without any page ranks?

Ybiang, It looks like you have a good start with a domain name on blogspot. Now you just have to write. Most paid to blog companies will require that your blog be at least 30-90 days old with at least 10 blog posts longer than 200 words. Google will index the blog as quickly as 15 minutes after you first publish it, at least they do when I start a new blog. As to the blog companies approving blogs with no pagerank, some do and some don't care.....as long as the blog offers good quality subject matter and has a readership. I have 3 blogs that have no pagerank and one of them only gets 10 visitors a week but I still make money from those three. The money is only $15 a week from them but that is $15 more than $0. My other blogs make more since they have pagerank and lots of visitors a day.

Thank you for this information. Glad I found this site again, couldn't access it yesterday. With http://www.payu2blog.com/ though, is it particular with PR? And do I really need to register with a hosting company? I dunno with Google indexing my posts though, haven't found them on its search engine results yet. One more thing, when you say $15 of income per week, does that only denote to your blog's ads? Or that already includes paid blog posts? Thank you so much for taking time to reply. :D

PayU2blog wants blogs with PR and 3 months old. They don't care about a top level domain name. To get your blog indexed fast, submit a site map to Google. You have to be a Google member and submit it under their webmaster tools. There are plenty of really good instructions online on how to do that so go and look them up. The $15 a week is from blog posts since I make only pennies a month on the ads, that is why you don't see that many ads on my blogs.
