Since the beginning of time, man has had this constant need to communicate and share ideas with others. Because of the widespread use and convenience of the Internet, sharing thoughts, ideas and experiences in several forms has never been easier – through blogging.
First up, it is good to have an idea of what blogging is about. Blog is derived from the phrase “web log” – which is defined as a publication of personal thoughts on the web or the Internet. It is much like a diary or a personal journal – about any topic – and each time a person writes an entry in the journal, he comes up with a blog post or an entry.
This person is referred to as a blogger, and what he or she is doing is known as ‘blogging’.
Basically, the entries or blog posts are arranged in such a way that the most recent entries are on top of the list. These entries can be in the form of a paragraph of texts, a video or audio file or? photos. Past entries are filed and referred to as ‘archives’.
Blog communities also exist. Since most bloggers post entries about various topics, those who can relate to each other form a community of bloggers – people who share the same interest and can come up with great ideas.
‘Show Me the Money?’
Although millions of people around the world are considered as bloggers, those who are blog addicts should dole out some money for hosting costs and to pay off their Internet Service Providers.
Since the popularity of web logs or ‘blogs’ some years ago, bloggers have been looking for ways to cover some of the costs? and even earn some money for themselves through blogging. Thus, a ‘wise man’ came up with the idea of earning money through blogging.
If you are a professional blogger, you should maintain several blogs about a wide array of topics to actually start earning money from your blogs.
Take a look at the following list on how bloggers can earn back their ‘maintenance costs’ and have some extra dollars for themselves through their blogs:
Much like a television show, a magazine or a newspaper, advertisements take the bulk of how bloggers can earn their money. AdSense, BlogAds and a host of other advertising options are available for bloggers to choose from.
2. E-books and Seminars
Bloggers who are experts on various fields are being contracted by their followers to conduct teleconferences or seminars to discuss topics on which they are a master of. Also, e-books have become a popular side income offered by blog experts.
3. Writing and Networking Opportunities
Just like a regular business, professional bloggers contact one another to expand their contacts and increase their opportunities. A professional blogger may ask another blogger to write for them or with them.? Independent bloggers can just write and depend to a larger network to advertise and earn the money for them.
4. Donations, merchandising, consulting and speaking are some of the other ways that bloggers can earn money.
‘How to Use your Blog to Generate AdSense Income’
As mentioned earlier, blogging can be quite pricey if you have a lot of traffic and web pages. There are a lot of e-books available where you can gain information on how you can earn hundreds of thousands of dollars a month through Google AdSense.
When you go to Google and search for AdSense, they describe it as a quick and no-brainer way for publishers of websites of all sizes to display relevant Google advertisements on their web sites’ content and earn some moolah.
Specifically, Google will display these AdSense ads on your site to match how they perceive the contents of your blog. They do this so that such advertisements posted on your blog will be of a certain degree of interest to those who read your blog posts
For example, if you have? a blog about podcasting, people who are interested in this field will more or less visit your blog site regularly. The AdSense ads that Google will incorporate on your web pages will be somehow related to podcasting, to catch the interest of those who are already browsing through your site – thereby ensuring that the ads will receive a great number of clicks.
Due to the simplicity of? Google AdSense, you can easily earn money from your blogs even without lifting a finger.
If you are a professional blogger – or even if you are just starting out – you can definitely add AdSense into your blog and earn money. Since this program was launched by Google four years ago, their AdSense program has changed the way that online users perceive blogging – from being a mere hobby to one that has a great income potential.
