WordPress.com doesn’t allow ads on your blog unless they are the ones who place them there, however there are many blogging platforms that do allow ads. Blogger.com is one of the big ones. If you are just starting out blogging and started blogging because you want to make money or if you just want to monetize your existing blog, I have four great companies that can help you achieve your goals.
They will give you code to place on your blog but it is you and you alone who has to provide great content for your readers otherwise no one will come to your blog and no one will click on your ads. If you believe you can provide great content in a particular niche or just have a blog about your personal life that will bring friends, family and worldwide visitors to your site, these companies can assist you.
Great Ways To Monetize Your Blog
I don’t own a blog that is monetized but I know that Google is one of the biggest in the market. Setting up an account with Google is painless and within hours you should have the code to add to your site and begin earning. Google has very strict rules about your conduct and they are quick to remove you as an Adsense account holder if you violate their Terms of Service.
If you are a Facebook member you have the option of setting up additional pages dedicated to your blog, business or website. Members can join your business Facebook page by Liking it. Right now with over 500 million members and an ad program that usurps your privacy by selling your information to third party businesses, they own 25% of Internet marketing. Adding your site’s Like information to your blog will bring new visitors and potential streams of revenue. On the right hand side of your personal Facebook page you can also purchase ad space for your blog and bring new visitors and new revenue to your blog.
Hundreds of new blog owners and web publishers join the LinkShare Network and use LinkShare generate revenue for their blog(s). When you become part of the LinkShare Network you have an opportunity to establish and sustain profitable relationships with some of the most recognized brands in the world including Netflix, Avon, Guthey-Ranker and 1-800 Flowers. With the right visitors and the best content you can muster, monetary opportunity awaits your bank account.
Flixya is an revenue sharing platform that allows you to share your blog posts, recipes, photos, and videos. Flixya allows you to add your Google Adsense account into your Flixya account. One of the great things about Flixya is that you do not have to add any special code to your own blog. Another great aspect of Flixya is you get to keep 100% of your Adsense earnings.
Researching for this post brought me to adBrite. I had not heard of them prior to writing this blog post. adBrite serves over 1 billion impressions a day on over 100,000 sites. From the information I was able to gather they also offer auctions on sites. I picked adBrite because of the potential I think they have in the market and because being different than every other blog, might be helpful in earning more money.
There are probably hundreds more that you can choose from. Remember how you feel when you reach a blog or website and it appears all their site is, is ads. Don’t do that to your blog visitors. It is a huge turn off. Have fun and make loads of money — then send some my way!
