Traffic means money!!!

If you have traffic on your blog it will convert (send you money) and as much as you get the targeted traffic money will come to you. The pain is how we can get targeted traffic and how to make readers return to our blogs?

As returning visitors can boost our traffic, so more people will be engaged, here's a 4-step checklist to get more traffic:
  1. Add an email subscription box to your blog

  3. Encourage them to leave comments
  4. Reply to comments and solve problems
Getting tons of traffic doesn't mean having a great impact on blog earnings. You have to save that traffic for later use.

Give rewards or freebies to your new visitors and in return ask them to follow you via the email newsletter system. So you can have a great RSS feed subscription list, which will help you to get targeted traffic in the coming days.

  • Display ads/flash ads or images
  • Text ads
  • Direct ads
Now start with reading about display ads.

Where to start with display advertisement?

If we talk about display advertisements, Google adsense comes first.

As you can see below:
This statistic shows the leading display advertising networks in the United States
This statistic shows the leading display advertising networks in the United States as of July 2015, ranked by share of U.S. online audiences reached. Via

And here's how you can get started with the Adsense:

  2. Now fill out the form professionally and add your blog URL there, payee name and add other details too
  3. Submit the request, if your blog complies with the policy of Adsense, they will accept you in the program in 7 working days (maybe more)
Yeah! You were accepted by Google Adsense?

Let's open the Adsense dashboard and navigate to my ads tab, then create an ads code and copy that code to paste at any area of your blog.

If you were rejected by Adsense you can try other alternatives to Adsense such as:

    A Yahoo and Bing ads network with a great interface and awesome features. It sometimes shows ads just like Google adsense does.
  2. Chitika

    A well-known ads network you can use for free. It also a great alternative to Google adsense
  3. Adversal

    This ads network might not be a famous one. But it is useful as many pro bloggers are using it right now.
I recommend you improve your blog more and apply again for Google adsense because Adsense is a great way to earn money without and hassle.

Text ads for blog monetization

If you are not satisfied with display advertising you can check text-ads-network too. Also if you are happy with display ads and want to increase your earnings you can use try to add text ads.

Infolinks is only a trusted and tested network (in my case) for text advertising.
  1. Open the Infolinks website and signup using your email address
  2. Submit your blog URL and wait for a reply from Infolinks
  3. Integrate your blog and earn :)
It is also the best alternative and uses able network to Google adsense. As it doesn't harm your blog or adsense account. You can use this network with Google adsense and other networks.

With more click-through rate you can earn more money. Only the headache is you have to generate huge traffic to get some bucks from Infolinks.

Direct advertisement for blogs

This is the safest solution for generating money through your blog just for impressions.

It all depends on you who you want to use your blog and who you want to be in the rest line. You can choose what types of ads can be displayed on your blog and what type of ads can't.

Well! The networks and solutions for everything is available here on the internet, also for direct advertising, their are many networks you can use for free.
  • BuySellAds is one of the best programs where people pay you dollars just by placing their ads on your web pages (blogs).
All the advertiser buy your ad-spaces just by seeing a rough estimate of impressions your blog receives in one month.

The amazing thing is you can set the price for ad spaces and you can add as much ads-spaces you want, on any page of your blog.

Fixed price for your ad-spaces can make you a monthly paid person, like if you set $35 price for single space and you have 4 ad-spaces. Then in the end of any month you will receive an hoping money with digits $140.

Is that not amazing, you can set anything like you want and no-one ask you any question or broke you down.

If you want any alternative to BSA you can give a try to

2. Sell E-books on your blog

It is something writes can do easily.

If you are a professional in any field you can write an E-book for sure. I know you didn't done this before, but you can think - you can write.

An E-book is all about secret-realness and information in a story telling mood. People love to read offline digital books in PDF format and that files called e-books.

Take this example:
  • Suppose you are a health blogger and blogging for some years. People trust on you and you have great social media following.

    Now its the time create an book full of secret health tips with many pages (not too many) and sell on blog with giving some sneak-peaces to readers.
As you can see on many blogs: 
Sell ebooks online and get paid with your blog
They sell e-books for a fixed price and reduce the price when you select bundle.

For example: If you where agree to buy 3 books, they will reduce their price or give you three eBooks in the price of 2. It means you got one for free and they got a happy customer and two book sells in one deal.

If you want to sell your books without any headache of book hosting and money collecting, you can try some online stores for free such as

3. Give services to blog readers

It is a great way for webmasters and pro bloggers to get some money by converting readers into costumers.

Suppose you are a SEO (search engine optimizer) who have authority in the field and can satisfy new costumers.

You can start free coaching online with making videos on basic SEO tips and helping some newbies to rank their blogs in Google.

After having some testimonials, you can then start paid classes for advanced SEO training. As you trained some newbies for basic SEO and it was helpful for them, they will instantly join your paid classes.

After that you can create full courses and upload on or other websites. When someone buy your course you will be paid by the platform you use for selling course.

*TIP: Don't want to sell your course/video tips? you can upload on after uploading apply for Google adsense and start showing ads on your videos. When the ads on your videos clicked by any watcher you will paid by Adsense.

There are many other services you can give to readers/clients as a Pro in your niche. For a webdeveloper/blogger the services will be categorized like:
  • SEO service (ranking in serps)
  • Web-design services (template/theme and other)
  • Hosting services and domain registration
  • Social media optimization (getting likes, shares, comments and reach)
So on,

You can give services to readers in any field, like if you are a pet-blogger you can give services like selling/buying pets, selling best foods for pets, selling mini homes for pets etc.

Your own choice:

Think what you can do as a hobby and on daily basis?

Because a doctor can advise about critical health issues and a fitness trainer can advise on common health issues not a tech-blogger.

If you are engineer try to blog about engineering and start consulting business for new students at engineering not at medical.

Don't follow others methods for earning money online by blogging. I know Loans and Car Sell type of keywords has high CPC rates. But if you are a event blogger or any other you can't blog on Loans niche.

Focus on what you can do and I am 200% sure you can earn money and make money blogging.

Hope for the best and stay connected for more helpful posts and tips on making money online. Thanks for reading.
