blog monetization

Hot question these days is how to make money with websites. The biggest chunk of the question is how to do it by using online advertising.
Some simply belive that plain placemnet of Google adsense or any advertising on your blog will just start producing money. It is simplification and illusion. You cannot sell any product if you do not have customers. It is exactly the same with blogs. Money can be made on advertising only if there is a base of customers that come to your site.
First step in monetizing is content. If you are offering interesting and new stuff people will be coming and they will continue to do so. Visitors have to learn that there is something worth visiting on your blog.
You can achive that with either posting few fresh blog posts every day, selling products and having a niche where the essence of your blog will raise and eventually be enriched with advertising.

Some of the methods in advertising on your Word press blog are:

Brokered Ads. For this you need an impressive number of visitors. It will cut down your work significatly because brokers dispaly their ads and you do not have to deal with neither billing nor technical issues,

Text link Ads. When you have properly optimized and highly ranked blog (on particular page) broker can be used again. If you do not want it that way, you can sell the adds yourself

Affiliate Ads. You simply choose affiliates that match your audience

Contextual Advertising (Adsense). It displays ads based on keywords from the page or your blogs category.

It is a first article in series that intends to help you monetize your blog.
