There are plenty of ways in which to make money from your blog that you have hosted here at Bake Radio, so we’ve decided to put up a few posts that outline the basic ways of doing this in terms that are easy to understand.
Attracting traffic is the be all and end all of making money with a blog, but as we have already pointed out in earlier posts, its not just any old traffic that will do for the task. Social traffic is fine if you want people to read your blog, but if you want money, you need search engine traffic. To get this you’ll need to know how to get ranked in the index and ranked well. This all boils down to SEO, as we’ve talked about already, so no need to go there again.
Now, if your goal is to actually make money online with your blog, you will need a different strategy, as we have already explained in earlier posts. To put it simply to save you backtracking, you need targeted, organic search traffic turning up to your blog. This is the kind of traffic that are searching for something and if they can find your blog in the search engine they’re looking in, then as long as you have what they want, they will have had a good experience in visiting your blog.
This is what the search engines want and by providing this, you and your blog will remain in their good books.
Of course, those very same visitors may be looking for more information than you can provide them with, in which case they are very likely to click out of your blog and go elsewhere to find that additional information. Now you can either allow them to hit the back button and leave your blog and not make you a dime, or you can place some ads in their line of sight, so that they may see something more interesting than the back button and click on the ad. Which makes you some money.
That’s the basic principle of making money with PPC ads or even some affiliate ads that provide the visitor with the answers they are looking for.
