First of all, just wanted to say Happy Halloween to all my readers! Hope you guys have a fun and safe one! I know I’m definitely going to have fun tomorrow… you’re never too big for Halloween.
Secondly, this post is to acknowledge that it is possible to make money online by blogging. I have received my Google Adsense payment!
I am unable to post how much it’s for because of Google Adsense’s policy, however, here’s the proof that I was paid. Also, you must reach a threshold of $100 before you can be paid by Google Adsense, so common sense tells you it’s more than that.
Now like I’ve said before, this is the only way to make money with Google. All those sites you see that claim you can make money from posting links for Google are scams! If you don’t believe me, look it up on other websites. It was all over the news recently and I believe ABC and a few other news networks did a segment on it warning people to stay away.
If you want to make money with Google, Google Adsense is the only way to do it. But believe me when I say it does take patience, hard work, determination, effort, research, and everything in between before you’d even see any kind of money with Adsense. This payment took me about 10 months, as I’ve been a Google Adsense member since January of 2009.
In order to make money with Adsense you need to develop a steady flow of traffic to your blog. How you go about doing this is your choice. You can choose to stand at the corner handing out flyers and business cards daily, or you can choose to create a YouTube video. You can promote your blog on relevant forums having the link in your signature, or you can put in the time and research to learn about SEO and SEM and target organic search engine traffic. Heck you can even tattoo your blog link across your forehead and walk around. But my point remains that you need traffic. Creating a blog is easy. Getting people to find it is the hard part!
But with that said, it’s definitely not impossible.
The proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the direct deposit.
Have a good one!
