How blogs can be used for earning money online

What is a blog?

Blog in simple language can be called a website with certain restricted features. Primarily the primary characteristic of blogs is that they are hosted by the Blog providing companies for free and thus their URL includes a customized name of the respective blogging company. For example, you might have come across certain sites with URLs (web addresses) like; these are not websites but blogs hosted by Blogger (with customized URL including the word "blogspot").

Blogs can be created through various blogging services, the most prominent of which are Blogger and WordPress. A major advantage of blogging is that blogs can be published completely free of cost and they look just like other websites. Moreover, blogs are used by individuals as well as organizations these days to share their stuff, ideas and innovations online. And the most important part (with which we are concerned in this article) is that blogs can be used to earn money online as well.

The true secret of making money online

First of all, I would like to make it clear that a blogger can only make money online when his real objective is not to make money online, rather it is one of the objectives of blogging online. 

I would like to clarify my argument in the lines ahead. When a bloggers' real objective is other than making money online such as sharing knowledge, (s)he would be having a good reason of having a high value blog that would be valuable and interesting to read, thus having the potential of being liked and followed by its visitors. (S)he would have a lot of content, ideas and much more of his/her own to share on the blog. Thus it would be helpful in concentrating more on developing the blog instead of always peeping over the earnings and remaining anxious to receive that first online payment.

Thus, if you want to earn money from your blog; your first lesson is to concentrate 99% on developing the content and quality of your blog and devote only 1% of your attention to researching the different ways of earning money from it. This logic is more applicable to bloggers of China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh etc, where there is a minimum age of the blog / website to be eligible to signup for Google AdSense; because people in these countries are more economically backward than the people in the western world and hence they tend to focus on just earning money and do not pay attention to providing quality information on their blogs / websites.

How you earn online with your blog?

To earn online from blogging, there are different ways. You could signup with Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising sponsors (such as Google AdSense, Infolinks, Clicksor, Advert and Chitika etc.) or with affiliate marketing providers such as Amazon and Ebay. You have to signup with these companies and place ads on your blog by placing the code provided to you. When ads are visible on your blog, PPC Advertising companies would pay you when visitors of your blog click their sponsored ads (placed on your blog) and affiliate marketing companies would pay you when visitors (of your blog) after clicking their ad on your blog or website also step ahead to buy the product or service (advertised via that ad).

Tips for making real income online

Out of the PPC advertising sponsors, Google AdSense is the best paying out program. But it is very difficult to get approval from Google AdSense these days, as restrictions in shape of Terms & Conditions / Policies of Google are in place for residents of certain countries. But here are some tips to get approval of Google AdSense for people from all around the world;
  1. Focus on creating a blog that provides value and something new to the visitors, and not just a reproduced stuff that is already known to them.

  2. Be innovative in the course of your writing, use discourse, logic and proper argumentation in every type of blog (post) you write, that is to say your content should not be shivering away from the reality; stick to the content which people would find and believe as true. Use jump break, pictures, videos, heading, bold and anchor tags (links) where necessary. This makes your blog (post) interesting and valuable.

  3. Do not copy content from anywhere, rather try to be a writer yourself.

  4. Signup for Google Search Console (Webmaster tools provided by Google) and optimize your blog for the most popular Search Engine on earth; Google and follow techniques in Google Search Engine Optimization starter guide.

  5. Promote your blog on Social sharing websites like Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Stumbleupon and get quality backlinks from high PR sites.
