There are many secrets to blogging for profit, but most bloggers are led to think that money from blogging comes easy. Yes, there is money here, but here are a few things you might want to know first.

Blogging for Profit: 9 Tips

If you’re determined to learn about blogging for profit, read these tips. Of course, always take them with a grain of salt.

1. If you are blogging for profit, know your SEO. If the words meta tags, keyword density, Panda updates, CSS, and backlinks all sound like gibberish to you, then it’s time for you to hit the books. Study SEO before you blog. And if you’re new at blogging, you might want to read a few blogging tips for newbies, too.

2. Learn to use blogger groups and social networks. That way, you get a lot of tips and leads! Many blogger groups give you tips on which paid post websites offer the most competitive rates. Other bloggers also get offers from direct advertisers who are looking for great blogs and they’re willing to share leads. For instance, I often post job listings for bloggers and writers on my Facebook page, so find me there and get frequent updates.

3. If you want to blog for profit, invest in your readers. If your readers keep coming back for more, then your blog is doing a good job. It is through consistent traffic that your blog is apt to turn a profit. You can start by reading about how to deal with negative comments on your blog.Blog for Profit

4. Enroll your blog in paid-per-post sites. This is definitely a constant source of income for many websites and blogs. However, do this with caution: having way too many sponsored posts on your blog, especially if you’re not very transparent about them, will hurt your blog later. Oh, Google absolutely hates sponsored posts IF you’re not honest about them.

5. Blogging for profit may mean blogging for other websites. Yes, you can earn money as a blogger – even if it’s as a blogger on other sites! Many web managers are now looking for writers and bloggers who will publish posts regularly on their sites. Although it’s not on your own blog, it’s still going to generate extra cash for you. (For instance, here is a past job listing on a company looking for a writer.)

I will share the rest of the tips on blogging for profit – plus useful links – after a few days. Check back soon or better yet, find me on Facebook to get instant updates. SPOILER: I’m also sharing information on how I got paid $26 for a month of blog ads, so make sure to read the rest of my post after a few days. Smile
