Finding Advertisers for Your Blog to Make Money Online
- 9 Comment
There are many ways on how to make money online. One way that almost all bloggers (regardless of their niche) use to make money is through advertisement i.e. they allow people to advertise on their blog. The advertisers can either be other bloggers or companies that want to market their products. They can advertise on your blog in the form of a blog post, banner or text link. With these different ways of selling ads on your blog, how can you find these advertisers if you are looking for how to make money online?
You can find advertisers by joining
1. A Contextual Advertising Company:- These are companies that tries to match the content of your blog with an ad. These companies would require you to install a code on your blog. They pay you per click i.e you make a certain amount of money anytime someone clicks on your ad. The best way to increase your revenues from this site is to optimize your site for search engine so that you can achieve high ranking on them.

2. A Review Company:- You would be required to write a blog post review about a website or a product. Depending on the advertisers requirements, the review is usually from 50 words to 400 words. If you can write more, the advertisers would like it, but that doesn’t mean you would get more compensation. Google frowns on this type of blog post because they feel that the advertiser is trying to game them, or manipulate readers to think that you like the product. Google wants you to disclose that the blog post is a paid review. You make more from these companies if your blog has a high page rank and receives a decent amount of traffic.
3. A Text Selling Company:- Joining this companies could be risky for your page rank because you are required to install a code in your blog theme. I think Google bots would be able to track the text code you installed. If you can build a lot of sites that can have PR 3 and above, you would make money from this type of companies because if one site loses its page rank, you would have another one to put into the system.
4. Webmaster Forums:- You have to be aggressively looking for advertisers if you are using webmaster forums. When you are in the forums, visit the section for link sale and send the people that want to buy link private messages with your blog stats (such as traffic, page rank etc) available. This would enable the advertisers to decide if he/she should or should not advertise on your blog.
