I think a lot of blogger noobs are afraid of doing paid plugs. It’s because they read on some random blog about how Google hates paid links. It’s true but who cares. Don’t be Google’s bitch. Let me be the first to say that you can monetize a site without Google PR. Of course having PR helps you make some extra cash, but you don’t necessarily need it. Bloggernoob dot com was PR 0 for the longest time. During that time, i made a lot of money. I think i made well over $5,000 with bloggernoob dot com. Making money online is about trying things out. If you’ve never tried to monetize your site with paid plugs, you’re missing out on some easy money.
These sponsored posts are also a good way to add content to you blog. I get hits from Google because my paid plugs show up in search engines. I get paid for the post, and i get paid again for the traffic it sends. If that’s not a double wammy, i don’t know what is. Guys, don’t read too much into what other people tell you. The only thing that is certain in life is your own personal experience. (If you’re Christian, personal experience with Jesus is the only way to Heaven) Everything else is all hearsay. It’s all secondary sources. If you’ve ever written a college research paper, you know that you want Primary sources to support your arguments. The only way to do that is by trying things out for yourself. Don’t believe my tips or advice, just try it out and determine things for yourself.
