How to make money from your blog

Now that you have started a blog and promoted your blog... it is time to monetize your blog!  This site is all about how to make a dollar, so monetizing your blog is a great way to make a dollar.  One way to make money from your blog is to use Google's AdSense.    All you have to do is go to the AdSense website and sign up.  You don't need a bank account or credit card information.  All you need is a name, address, and blog.  So hopefully your parents gave you a name and you are not homeless.  When you earn at least $10 they will send you a check.

After you sign up and Google approves your account (may take up to a week) and you finalize the set up, Google sponsored advertisements will begin to appear on your account.  You may notice advertisements above and below this blog and on the side below our twitter gadget.  The advertisements are usually somehow connected to what you blog about.  When people click on these advertisements you get money.  Pretty simple.  When you sign up for AdSense you agree not to click on your own advertisements.  So if you don't want to end up in the Ethical Grey area of our blog, don't click on your own advertisements.  I'm pretty sure it gives you money only for "unique visitors."  So even if you get someone to click on your advertisements over and over, it will only pay you for the first time they click on it.  Now that you have advertisements on your blog you have even more incentive to generate traffic. So go start a blog and make some money.  Its free!
