Well, now we’ve looked at how to make money online using SEO to boost your blog’s presence in the search engines, which is paramount for succeeding with Adsense. So let’s look at another way of generating a passive income from your blog hosted here at Bake Radio – eBay.
Your blog comes with a built-in program that enables you to use your eBay EPN account to display relevant items from their auction right here on your Bake Radio blog! Its simplicity itself to set up and once your blog is attracting visitors from the search engines, will earn you commissions on every item that is bough through your blog.
The best way to do this is to create a separate page (rather than a post) that you can give the title “Online Store” or something similar. There you add some relevant content to explain what it is you are selling, maybe a short review of the products etc, then add a simple piece of code like this:
Ebay productYour Keyword[/(ebay]
This will trigger ads (replace “your Keyword” with the search keyword) for your product to be displayed in neat boxes on the page. You can set up how many boxes you want displayed as well as other parameters by going to the “Ebay Listings” tab in your WP control panel.
By attracting targeted search traffic by promoting those keywords using SEO as described in an earlier post here, you will, as your blog gains popularity and search engine results page (SERPs) position, attract more traffic looking for exactly the product you are promoting on eBay, which will result in more clicks, bids and sales. Which all mean more commission for you!
