Commission Junction has been my money maker. It’s been almost a month since i began my blog. When i started this i knew it was going to be hard. I’ve put in more hours then i originally estimated but it’s been a lot of fun and highly addictive. It’s been a pleasure getting up every morning to check my stats.
Google PR – N/A
Considering that i was at a rank outside of the millions, im happy for my currend alexa rank. I think i have to work on getting more backlinks so that google can assign me a page rank. It wasn’t even a focus when i started but seeing my site grow forces me to reconsider.
Adbrite – $0.16
PayPerPost – $25.10
CJ – $468.75
Smorty – $6.00
Total – 494.07
GoogleAdsense and Adbrite don’t work well with blogs about blogging. Especially if the blog is a blog about making money online with a blog. The CJ commission i really had to work for. I did some offline marketing to people i know. I think making money online requires you to work offline as well. If you want to make money with your blog you have to really do some work. Be creative and figure out the way to monetize the site. I haven’t focused on DP as a revenue source but i will in the next coming month.
Watertesting is important when it come to different advertisers. I still don’t know how networks pay so i am being cautious. I would have done more posting on Smorty and PPP but I want to wait until the first payments clear. Don’t want to find out that i won’t get paid for posts i write, rather focus on other things in my busy day.
Payperpost is slow for me so i plan on waiting until i fully commit to them for income.
