Are you interested to start a blog just because you want to have some income online? I’m afraid you’ll fail or you’ll turn into a spammer. Most people who gets interested in blogging from the beginning, what they do is to setup a blog from blogger (blogspot) and sign up for a google adsense account. It’s okay to put some ads here and there and start your income just from the beginning but what about content?

I see lot’s of new blogs everyday with a bunch of adsense here and there but with no regular updates. When they realize that traffic is the key, then they start to spam blogs and forums and even ask for click on those ads. But you should always remember that only fresh articles will attract more readers coming to your blog again and again.

"A" for Articles, not Adsense in blogging

Articles are the root of your blog

Original articles will make others to read, share and come back later. The more often you create a new blog post, the more often they will come. This will also invite search engine robots to come again and you’ll *develop a better page rank.

More ad doesn’t means more income

You should know this fact. Adding more ads will make the pay per click rate for each ad will be decreased. It’s not about the number of ads, it’s all about the positioning, colors and traffic.

Don’t put adsense in empty pages

Adding the ad code in an empty page will show up irrelevant ads. If you create a blog with no content, then you should not promote it. Write at least 10 nice articles before you officially start to promote it.

Traffic alternatives

Search engine traffic takes some time to develop. On the other hand, the more articles you’ll have, the more traffic you’ll get from them. Before depending on that source, try to build some other ways of traffic like Social bookmarking, but don’t ever think of traffic exchange, banner or link exchange sites.

Have patience

Yes I’m making money online but I didn’t receive my first payment just after starting my blog. You have to put regular effort on your blog and don’t expect to get a big money overnight. Have patience and it will come with a great result. As a result I didn’t pay a single cent from my own pocket for my blogs. The domains, hosting, ads, projects, internet cost, PC maintenance, everything I paid with the money which I earned from blogging.
