How to Monetize Your Blog

The question on the lips of most bloggers is ” how can I monetize my blog “,
Let me start this way, making money on a blog really should not be the issue.
The issue is having people on the blog
Even when you learn how to monetize your blog, the money won’t make much of a meaning if people aren’t visiting it.
First, What is a blog ?

My simple definition is a webpage with updated information.

So a blogger is therefore one that writes content for a blog.
Blogging is the easiest way to keep people informed, educated about relevant issues that will be of interest to them
My focus today really is how to monetize your blog
Suppose you already have a blog, or probably a website and it has a page for updated content (blog)
Then learning how to monetize it is very important because, you will be spending a lot of money keeping the blog going (domain names and hosting) every year, or month depending on the hosting plan
. Except you are using a freeblog, Before I explain how to Monetize your blog
Kindly understand, there are lots of limitations to freeblogs for monetization
And I will talk about it, later in the teaching.

First way to Monetize is through
* CPC or PPc ads
Cost per click (also called pay per click) ads are usually banners that you place in your content or sidebar. Each time a reader clicks on the ad, you are paid for that click.
There are different CPC or ppc networks or platforms
The most popular of it is google (google ads). Google recieves thousands of requests per day from publishers to place ads on their sites but, they only approve just a few, they turn down thousands of requests daily.

Why does google turn down a lot of requests ?
Google has a policy they follow, you need to understand it to be accepted
Let me drop some of the major requirements.

Let me mention some other ways to make money from your blog

  • Sponsored content
