I derrived these stats from another Great earning Blog:  Income Diary ( owned by Michale Dunlop)

These are great numbers right ?

So what are really helping them to earn, is it that they simply grew up or is it that they are earning by just throwing a few 125×125 ad banners all over their websites ? Absolutely not !

Smart and sucessfull website owners earn Big Cash from their websites due to few Solid methods or call them even reasons that i can even list below:

  • Quality Quality / Unique Unique Content ! I will give this point a 5 star rating as this is the most and the very most important part in this article, If  you have regularly updated content and that too with qulity, give it some time and do your homework, Money and traffic will follow.
  • Advertising Banners : It is one way of earning money from your blog But not one of my methods, it makes your blog feel like a ad newsletter, so limit it to only quality ads and very few in number.  To get good ad banners, i suggest you  to directly contact webmasters and website owners you find in Forums like Digitalpoint and explain your traffic potential and get them to put up ads on a monthly or yearly basis. (this option has not worked that great personally for me, but contributed for about 10% of my earnings)
  • Affiliate Sales: This method of advertising has Really been over the web and has really worked for me and for many others well. ( nearly 40 -60% of my earnings are from the Affiliate Sales, so tie up with some good affiliate products in your niche and suggest them with your affiliate links within your articles so that you can convert your sales from REAL People who trust you and  are in need of the good products you suggest. Read this to know more on that: 12 WordPress Plugins to monetize your Blog ( this article will also give you know how about wordpres s plugins that automatically convert your keywords to affiliate links, isnt that nice ? )
  • Private Advertising : Another very important method that i use to make some cash, How ? its simple, browsing the web a lot is important when you have just begun, Some regular forums i brows are : Digitalpoint forum, Statcounter forum, SEO Chat forum, Programming Talk forum, WebdesignForum, SitegroundForum – Just google these website names and you will get the forum link.  do regular posts here, Talk to people you find there, Show off your traffic in the Sell Area, and invite potential advertisers to buy text links on your home page etc ( this has been working well for me) But remember not to over crowd your Blog Roll 🙂
  • Selling your Products: Its always nice to take out time to write in your own niche, like i have been writing ebooks and intially do a free giveaway and let people get a taste of what you write, then sell your or others ebooks on your website and make cash !
  • Adsense/ Chitika: These two PPC admodules have worked well for me, again dont over do it, only use these when you have lot of quality content and when people would not mind you using 1 ad in your article, that might also count helpful. Eg. while reading about best paints if they see an add to buy paints, they would ofcourse click i, there Again youve learnt how to get cash 🙂

How to get Quality Traffic

I have written many article in the Orangecopper blog about many methods of Building a trust between you and your readers, So getting traffic could be difficult, but Getting returning visitors is Even Difficult, But Do-able !!

  • Again Quality Content comes first
  • URL rewriting and preparing your website/blog for the search engines
  • Using Of social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Digg, technorati, Stumbleupon etc effectively as soon as you have your article ready.
  • Publicizing your Blog well:  use forums signatures, reply in blogs ( and dont simply do it, do it when its really required and when you have something to say, otherwise people wont even take a note about your post then forget about them noting your signature.
  • PressRelease websites: Using PressRelease has always helped me get good quality inbount link and traffic.
  • Blog Carnivals: Use Blogcarnivals, blogcarnival.com. release blog carnivals. I have got upto 5000 Visitors on an article on many Blog carnival releases, its a good method to further flow in visitors.
  • Make Friends: Find Opportunities  to talk to webmasters in your own niche and exchange blogrolls.
  • Help others: with your articles, in forums and boards, so let people com to your website and learn rather learn from the same page ;). so that will open up a road to your Blog.
  • Keep Them coming ( The most important ): Would it be of any use if a potential visitor comes to your website, stays there for 1.5 minutes and leave and never come back ? Absolutely you would not want this to happen! So bring them back and use Newsletter systems to keep your members enlightned and informed. Set up a RSS FEED and Newsletter system on your website and make sure you dont iritate them with frequent posts, but send Valuble ,good and informative newsletters linking to articles on your blog so that they keep coming.

So thats how i earn from my blog doing nothing ! (now ) But the above is the honest list of things i wanted to share with all of you so that you would also do nothing and earn in the future 🙂 good luck dear friends..
