It’s Easy To Make Money Blogging

At least that’s what you’re thinking, right? I always love to watch a new blogger, or at least interact with them online while they rant and rave about how they are going to make money blogging right away! Now don’t get me wrong, it is always great to have optimism! But if you are a new blogger, or are thinking about quitting your day job to trade it for your office computer for a living, then don’t.

You can make money blogging. Like I said earlier, new bloggers have an idea in their head about how much money they are going to make with their blog. They can visualize sitting by their new beach house, sipping drinks with umbrella’s in them, letting their blog do all the work!

I hate to bust your blog bubble but if you are only in the blogging industry to make money, then you are going to fail! Almost every new blogger that starts a blog will usually end up quitting after, at the most, 3 months. Why? Because it never made them any money!

When you are in the market to start a new blog, you have to be realistic with your goals. The number one thing that new bloggers get into trouble with right away is when they realize that they can sell other people’s products on their site and get paid for them. This usually sends their tiny little brains into overdrive and they start spending money that they haven’t even made yet!

Most “pro” bloggers will tell you that it does take some time for the monetary side of the blog to start developing. John Chow from JohnChow.Com told me that he did not make a single penny until his 8th month, and even that wasn’t anything to sneeze at! The 21 year old entrepreneur from IncomeDiary.Comalso repeated what John Chow had told me earlier. He too, did not start making money until the start of his second year! Make a note that these are two of many professional bloggers that make over $10,000-$50,000 per month with their blogs.

They all started at zero.

New Bloggers Can Make Money Blogging

make money bloggingLet’s start from square one. You have a blog. That’s great! Hopefully it is a self-hosted WordPress blog. Google loves these and are very easy to optimize because of all of the free plugins that you can add to your site. Getting a keyword-rich domain name that refers to what your site will be about is how you want to start.

Free blogging platforms like Blogger and WordPress.Orgare great platforms, and I have seen some of these in the rankings, however, you are restricted on how you can edit these as they limit you to certain types of programming that you can do. Getting a self-hosted blog will allow you to do whatever you want.

If you are in the market to eventually make money blogging, you want your site to look professional. It just can’t be done with free platforms.

Well, I didn’t mean to go into all of that…

What I wanted to talk about was how a new writer could actually make money blogging online. As you might have guessed, this is not going to happen right away. If your love for writing great content and giving up valuable information to your readers outweighs your desire to make money blogging then you will succeed. Like I said before, most people start seeing dollar signs and think that when they create a new blog that magic internet dust appears and does the rest for them! This will not happen. You have to WORK your blog if you want to make money eventually!

Ways New Bloggers Can Make Money Blogging Right Away…

  • Google Adsense-If you don’t have Google Adsense set up in your blog, then you need to create an account and get it set up right away. Once the account is created, there is a plugin I use called Easy Adsense that allows you to copy and paste Adsense Ads inside your blog.

One tip I will recommend is to check Google’s policy on Adsense Advertisements.The reason you should read this for yourself and not let me tell you is because in order to get the most out of Google Adsense you need to know the rules. Just placing ads all over your site is not going to set well with Google and they will punish you for this. There is a set number of ads that they allow you to put on your site.

Another piece of helpful information is this: Once you have placed your Google Adsense on your website, create a new page in your Dashboard and call it “Advertising Policies”. Having an advertising policy on your website will be helpful to you because Google rewards website owners that have this! When I put my advertising policy on my website, my Google Adsense almost tripled overnight! Get one on there!

  • Getting website traffic is easier than you think- When I first started blogging I had no idea what I was doing!  I knew that there was a way to get to the top of the organic searches, but I didn’t know how to do it!  Once I found out about link building, I feverishly, if not frantically, started building backlinks to my site.  My mistake was thinking that organic search traffic was the only way that my blog would see any activity.  Think about this.  If you are trying to rank on page one of Google for a high competition keyword, and only get traffic this way, then you will be waiting a long time!  Especially if your keyword has the word “money” in it.

I later found out a great trick to get traffic without having to be ranked nowhere near the top of the first page.  This is through social make money blogging with social mediamedia!  If you are not “connected” on social media, then you are missing out on a load of traffic.  Read my post on 3 Ways To Get Fast Results With Social Media, this will show you more in-depth the techniques that are used to get traffic.

The technique that I use to get a ton of traffic out of social media sites everyday without having to be ranked went so well that I wrote an ebook about it called Boost Your Social Media Traffic Overnight. You will benefit a whole lot from this ebook. This shows tips and techniques that professionals like Jeff Bullasuse everyday to get over 300,000 visits per month!

    Great article. New bloggers should read this.

  2. Great post Wade! I think part of the problem is that there are “gurus” out there that will get people all excited and thinking that they can start working at home and have an insane amount of money in their account the next day. I have noticed that another mistake that new bloggers make is to rush their links out there everywhere and they get labeled as a spam blog.
    It is a great opportunity, but you are so right that it takes time and work! I can’t remember exactly how long it took for my blog to make money, but I know it was around a year before my first tiny amount came in from blogging. I did start out not knowing what a blog was so it was a bit of a learning process!

  3. One of my friend started his blog and he is earning too much from his blog. He just put unique content in his blog and reviews the comments. I was surprised to here him when he said me that he never done SEO for his blog.
