If you are looking to monetize your blog and would like to have control over what type of ads to be displayed on your blog, then Google Adsense may be the right choice for you. Google opens the door to build potentially long lasting business relationships with your advertisers. It’s no necessary true if you heard someone said that you need at least 1000 daily visitors to your blog to make money with advertisement. There’re a lot of Malaysian blogger who can still make money with lower number of visitors.
However, you need to be proactive and try to look for your advertisers everywhere you can. If you can find at least 2-3 potential advertisers, then you can really make a good income.
Apart from displaying Google Adsense on my blog, I also make use of local advertising program which is Nuffnang. It’s kind of difficult for you to make money with Nuffnang as only commercial blog can receive the metered campaign from Nuffnang which can guarantee higher earning.
Do you ever wondered how much I can earn from Google AdSense? When I started displaying Google AdSense at my blog I wondered that how much would I earn from it. The answer to this question is very subjective and it depend on what techniques you use to make money. You can really make a great amount of money per month if you use good keywords to create content and get traffic.
Basically, your earnings from Google AdSense is solely depends on keywords, CPC, eCPM, and traffic:
i) Keywords are the words or terms that people search in the search engines. Certain keywords are higher in earnings, which may be worth $35, and another may be worth $5.
Different bloggers have different mindset and that is the reason why there is an increase in number of paid products released by bloggers like e-books, e-courses, membership sites etc. It’s better than just sticking to Adsense on your blog.
Blogging is not just about making money, but it sure is a nice bonus. There’s no barrier of entry to become a blogger, where as programmers require real occupational training.
Previously, I was an embedded software engineer, which is not my interest field exactly. After I started blogging, I realize it has more potential than any other job looking at the current scenario. Besides, I can work according to my time schedule. Be my own boss.
In short I can live with my own life.
What Is My Ambitious?
After 1 year with the domain name imDavidLee.Com, this blog has good rank and it’s made money also. For the coming days, I will have own Internet connection at home thus I will be more flexible to handle my personal blog and perhaps make more money this year. Then, I can plan to buy my decent house and dream car without using my fixed employment income.
If you did follow my previous articles, you may know that i can make more than US$100 since May 2008. Although it’s just a small amount for professional blogger, but for newbie living in Malaysia it is big money.
My Current Rank Of This Blog:
Google PageRank: 2
Alexa Rank: app. 350,000
Technorati Rank: app 130,000
Thanks to more than 100 visitors/day and the back links from some fellow bloggers. The traffic fully depends on my activity on Google Search Engine. Google Search Engine has helped this blog since 4th quarter of 2008. Yeah…It’s been a primary traffic for this blog. Check out the screenshot below.
I got some clicks from the running ads but not so consistent for every day. Hence, this is my primary task and another challenge for me to achieve.
Thanks to several sponsored review and paid post program. It’s given me traffics and chances to make money online.
I’m a “late bloomer” when it comes to multiple blogs! Most of us have heard that the best way to make money blogging is by having multiple blogs. With multiple blogs, you can diversify your niches just as you invest mutual funds in the stock market. Putting all your eggs in one basket is never a good idea. People should start more than one blog to diversify, given they have the time to manage them.
Besides that, a blog doesn’t cost much to run. The average web hosting for a blog is around MYR12.50/month and register a new domain name cost about MYR30/year. However, you could even start your blogs using a free hosted site like WordPress.com or Blogger.com but they provide free hosting only and you do not own your domain name and there will be limitation on ads usage.
