How To Find Advertisers For Your Blog
By Matt Garrett Copyright
There's a term now applied to blogs which are actually making an
income for their owners: They've been "monetized."
Google's AdSense is the most common
way of monetizing your blog, but there other ways of generating revenue.
One method is to get people to advertise on your blog.
You can get people to pay you for
putting links from your blog to their websites, or even for posting
a review about their products and services.
That's right, you can actually get paid for
placing someone's link on your blog or for giving your opinion about
whatever they are selling.
It sounds simple, but there is one caveats involved,
especially concerning the paid links. Once you have figured out how to
get around it, you'll be ready to monetize.
Google Isn't Happy About Some
Kinds Of Paid Links
Google isn't happy about a lot of things, but
they seem to have taken a more unfavorable stance than usual about paid
links. The reason makes sense: people with enough money can simply buy
enough links to guarantee them a good Google ranking, and then they will
make even more money.
And Google's reputation for sorting out the best-viewed websites from
the rest, based partly on the number of links which connects to those
sites, will be compromised.
So if you want to delve further into setting up
some paid to post blogs in which you are being paid to post somebody's
links, there's a Google solution: simply make sure that the links you
are being paid to post have rel="nofollow" attribute to the href tag.
The Google SE will
then know not to assign the same weight to these links and they will
not help the advertiser's SEO rankings in any significant way.
Google claims it
can tell the difference between links you are paid to post on you blog
and links put there to garner higher Google rankings.
Whether that is true or not,
you don't follow Google's suggestions with you paid to post blog links,
there is a chance that Google can boot your blogs from their SEO index
as well as your paying customers.
So why not sidestep the issue completely by making
sure your advertisers add recommended coding to your paid links?
Finding Paid Advertisers For Your Paid To Post Blogs
Instead of trying to sell your blog to the hundreds of advertisers
who might find it a good place to promote their products, you can take
advantage of the many sites whose services bring advertisers and bloggers
and Sponsoredreviews.com will
all invite you to submit your paid to post blogs to them, and if
they accept you, will contact their advertising clients with services
and products which might be a good fit for your blog topics and
have to find the advertisers, and they don't have to find you. You can
just get down to the business of monetizing with them.
But if you want to maximize your monetizing, you'll need
to learn how to find the best offers for the space you are selling on
your paid to post blogs.
