How many ways do you monetize your site?

Let me count the ways I monetize my blogs. The methods may not focused on one single blog but spread out over a few.

1) Google Adsense

2) Paid Posts

3) Links on the side bar

4) Links at the bottom of pages

5) Links sold on per month basis, inserted into our old posts

6) Random links with pop up bubble like Infolinks.

7) Banner ads

8) Chitika premium which appears only to traffic from USA

Ok, this post is about method number 6. Previously, I use Kontera but Kontera warned me that I cannot use Kontera with some other ads program. The frustrating thing is, after two emails, they still did not tell me what I did wrong and I hate being warned that my account may be suspended. Luckily, Hongkiat told me about Infolinks. So, I took off Kontera and replaced with Infolinks. They work in similar way, so you can choose one.

Infolinks work with Google Ads so you do not have to worry about that part too. Want to try Infolinks? Use my referral link, please? I ask nicely, ok? Hehehe.

If you do not now how to mess with the javascripts, don’t hesitate to ask. I have seen some publishers with loads of green, double underlined links. You can change the colour and reduce the number of links, you know? I have changed mine to only five and when I do paid posts, I just ‘hide’ the infolinks from appearing.

    Lilian, what about AdBrite? AdBrite also has ad options that works like Kontera / Infolinks, and according to AdBrite, they’re also Google Ads compatible.

    AdBrite, as well as Chitika and Google AdSense have been very kind to me in terms of helping me monetize my sites. Love them!

    These are all nice starter ways to make money on your sites but I’ve always been told selling products found on clickbank is really the way to make money. Clickbank products can pay $50 vs. $1 for even the best adsense niches. I’ve done a little of both and I can see the benefits of clickbank. I’ve made two sales and I’m matching my adsense for the past 2 months!

    Will try adsense and see if my income increases. Thanks.

    Hi, you know what? I was looking up this infolinks to see if it was a scam and I saw your blog… If I can find your referal link I will sign up under you. You know why? Because referal programs never work for me, so I want to help. It won’t hurt me any to sign up under you, and it’ll help you. Why not?

    Hi, I just discovered Infolinks through your website. Never heard of it before, thanks :)
    One suggestion for you – when you integrate links in your blog posts, add the _blank so that it would open in a new window, not redirect in the same window. You don’t want to send your visitors away, do you?
    Have a nice day. :)

    I tried adsense and hated it. There are sooo many MFA sites (stolen content from scrappers – worthless – Made For Adsense). Proformancing is not that easy to configure but it seems to have the right idea. You can sell adspace on your sidebar for a few bucks a week to start out.

    I’m not a big fan of adsense myself – it takes ages to earn with it.
    I discovered a nicer alternative to it – Clickbank Adrotator. It rotates clickbank products relevant to your topic.
    It doesn’t pay by click, but the commissions on the other hand are much higher as well, should someone buy from your link.

    Have you already received payments from infolinks? Do they really pay? Thnaks, just asking, I`m also interested to try this one since kontera CPC s**ks.

    I 100% agree with you,
    Infolinks is 100 times more better than Kontera, i was frustrated after using kontera for 2 months all i had earned was 4 USD, and i was able to reach this in just 4 days after i installed Infolinks on few pages of my website for trial basis, now i am going to implement it on all my pages

    Hello, I heard that in-text-ads (like infolinks) will hurt your blog’s pagerank because google doesn’t like selling links on your site. is this true? what do you think about this?

    […] months and a half since I have serve their ads in most of my blog. I heard about this program from 5XMom blog and she has also earn big with this program. Can’t compare it with mine since 5XMom is much […]
