How to Create and Monetize a Blog through Pay Per Click Advertising

This is a guest post by Sushant Risodkar from SmartBloggerz.

It’s hard to find a single person these days who hasn’t heard of pay per click advertising. But only a handful of internet and non-internet users have a full grasp of its meaning. Pay per click advertising is just one of the many ways invented to make money online. But it is not of those schemes that claimed to give you instant success and money. This kind of online money making will require effort and talent. The good thing is, you don’t have to put up huge capital money to earn from it. The requirements to get started are simple. If you have a computer, internet access, time and a will to learn the ways of the business, then you are more than geared up to begin.

For starters, you need to own a blog or website where you can publish the ads. By now, you probably have heard of what a blog is and if you don’t have one yet, there are plenty of websites where you can set up an account for free. Your blog should contain meaty articles to attract many readers. You need this kind of pull if you want to make a lot of money through pay per click advertising. If the content of your website or blog is very generic, you will have a hard time making it stand out amongst the hundreds of sites that are already out there. Copying from article directories won’t simply cut it since your blog will only become like a copycat.

The Quality Of Content

It would be easier for you if you blog about informative articles that you have a good grasp on. This will ensure that you will be able to deliver unique information to your readers and ascertain a good place for your blog in search engine rankings. If you set up a blog only to earn money, make sure that you have researched well about keywords before deciding on what to blog about. You can run a search of a particular keyword in a search engine and see how popular it is in the results among pay per click sponsors.

Traffic Matters

The key to successful online money making always lies in the traffic that your blog makes. The number of visitors will determine how much you are going to make with an online money making scheme like pay per click advertising. You have to have sufficient knowledge about Search Engine Optimization or SEO. Learn how to promote your blog. You can take advantage of blog directories, social networking sites and you can even participate actively in different forums where you can duly spread the word about your niche blog.

Monetizing It

When your blog is starting to perform well in terms of targeted traffic, monetization is obviously the next step. There is plenty of pay per click advertising networks like adsense, chitika etc. that you can sign up into to be an affiliate. It is not impossible to earn a decent income once you have established an effective system to make the most out of it. When a visitor of your blog or website clicks on one of the ads, you receive an appropriate remuneration for that action from your sponsors.

At The End…

One should remember that pay per click will not make you rich instantly so expect to invest a lot of work before you see significant results. But one thing is for sure, earning revenue through pay per click advertising is as real as it gets.

  • PPC is great if you compound it with other methods to monetize your blog such as affiliate marketing.

    PPC is excellent for passive revenue and is perfect to compliment your promotions for products related to your niche. Unfortunately, PPC does either need a lot of traffic or highly relevant traffic with equally relevant ads.

    Here’s a tip, especially for local businesses – it’s called day parting. As in, you schedule your ads only to appear during business hours of the day. If you follow customer trends in clicks and conversions by the hour of the day, you’ll notice the peak hours. You can bully out your competitors on bids by focusing on certain times of the day. Make sure you are constantly optimizing based on these trends. You don’t want to miss your customers, but if you’re on a tighter budget, just wait for ‘the right moment’ of the day and bust out the cannons to hit your prospects when they want you most. I have it all managed for me, so no sweat. Simon can set you up to get managed if you’re interested, just call him at 302-401-4478.
