I supposed you have already read about my previous post describing what is a blog.
The next step would be introducing to you the most common and easiest way to monetize your blog. Knowingly or not you have may have already viewed hundreds or thousands of these.
Why I say common? You might not notice it but everytime you view a webpage, or a specific site, it is always present (although not all).
Why I say easy? It is easy because all you have to do is create an account, write your blog and copy & paste the html codes.
What I am talking about is a program called Adsense from Google. It is free to sign up and all you have to do is wait for the application to be approved (before getting an account with adsense it is advisable to create your blog first, post your first 2 to 3 posts). Putting it on your blog is easy, you just copy and paste the html codes that are provided by adsense. And what makes it even easier is that Blogger http://www.blogger.com/ (blogspot where this blog is hosted) have already automated adding adsense to your blog. Another thing is, all the ads that would be displayed on your blog will be related to the topics of what the reader is viewing.
Once you have your ads posted on your blog, all you have to do now is wait for your readers to visit your site and click on those ads. But, always remember, never click on the ads on your blog or else your account with Adsense will be disabled. All clicks made from your site are recorded and analyzed by the Adsense Team, and if they find something suspicious about those clicks, you will be banned from the Adsense Program. Also, never tell or instruct your friends or anybody to click on those ads.
Adsense payouts are done thru check, fund transter, and their new way the Western Union money transfer.
