Every time a new story comes around of a successful blogger who made it big through his writing skills, you see a spike in traffic for people looking for blogs with revenue or “how to generate revenue from your blog” kind of articles. A successful blogger will often start saying it is very easy to generate a gazillion dollars via blog and start selling his eBook. In fact most bloggers who barely make a few hundred dollars will start backing his story of even how they are making so much money via Adsense and what not.
If you are a relatively new blogger , here are a few quick thoughts I would like to share with you.
If you have simply been blogging for Adsense income your blog articles will be totally keyword focussed. They will be rich in keywords but totally become alien to your end users. Remember blogging is about engaging people and not a one-way street. You have to try and make people who come to your blog from day one keep coming back. Having at least one visitor turn into a loyal one in a day is a great achievement.
Blog about things that you like , things you hate and things that don’t bother you. Don’t blog because the keyword “DVD” will bring you $3 a click. By doing this you are actually cheating your readers of your true potential.
- blog about your interests and not for Adsense
- blog and engage your readers.
We all have been taught to place that Adsense code at the very top, above the post and below the post.This is the standard across a range of high traffic word press blogs. If you start placing these on your website as well, how are you any different from a million others.
Readers have now seem to overlook any ads on your website. People will hardly seem to see any ads and get straight to the article. Make sure that whatever you publish is served to your readers before you start serving them ads.
- get a decent traffic before you think revenue
- explain to your readers why you will be putting up ads if any
I have often seen extremely great and insightful bloggers start high and then loose all their passion in the middle. People will most often loose their passion midway because of other commitments. Sometimes the blog does not turn out to what they thought it would.
There is a very old saying which vaguely translates to, if you can preserve your passion or hunger to do whatever you wish to do and work at it for 180 days, you have a good chance of success.
- constantly work at it if you want to achieve something
- brand yourself as an expert
