Making Money Blogging Online
One of the most common questions I see online now, and a question I used to ask myself, is just how much money can I make online blogging at sites like InfoBarrel? The answer varies from user to user, based on how much writing you've done, how well you use SEO and keyword research, how experienced you are, etc. So it's hard to give a general answer, but what I've learned from blogging on InfoBarrely is that you CAN in fact make some money on here - it just takes a little time and effort.
InfoBarrel really is a great way to make money working from home - it is a website which pays you 75% of their Google Adsense Revenue with you, which is a pretty decent percentage!
The great part about blogging on InfoBarrel is that you write articles here, and then they make money over time - after you write them, the work is basically over. Sit back and watch the money come in! Every time a person clicks on a Google Adsense Ad, you make money (usually $1-$2 a click). If your click-through-rate (CTR) is about 2 percent (decent) you can expect one click per 100 page views.There are many ways to maximize GoogleAdsense revenue!
How to Register With Google AdSense
Google Adsense is the primary way people make money here on InfoBarrel. Thankfully, registering with Google Adsense is free and simple.
To sign up, you must go to this link - https://www.google.com/adsense/g-app-single-1 - and fill out the form. Check out this article by InfoBarrel on how to sign up for a Google Adsense account. It is very informative!
Once you register with them, you can also register with the Amazon Affiliates Program - you can link to Amazon products, and if someone buys them through your article, you get a percentage of the profits!
How Much Can You Make Per Article?
While you don't get paid per article you write, you get paid per click (on Google AdSense and also another site, Chitika). I have read on here in the forums that the average a user can expect to make, per month, per article, is about 50 cents. That doesn't sound like much, but once you write enough it starts to add up. Some of the older members on here have written over 1,000 articles - some make closer to $1 per month per article - you do the math!
A Few Tips
Write articles that are over 500 words in length, and articles that are original and created by you. Write articles that are funny, informative, or both. Try to create headlines that are catchy, and always try to include photos from around the web (just make sure you credit the source). I've learned that features that are over 550 words and that have good photos are MUCH more likely to get featured on this site.
Creating articles that will help people usually do well. For example, people always want to know how to make money online or where to find work at home jobs (such as this one) you way want to write about that! Or, if you are an expert in a field, you can write a number of great, informative articles on that topic.
Keywords Are Important
It's not enough to write good informative articles to make money on InfoBarrel - you need to do a little keyword research. To make money with Google Adsense online, it's important to pick good keywords so you earn the most money per click on an Adsense ad.
I've been using this website for keyword research and I think it's a pretty good place to start - http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com.
What is SEO?
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is very important. When people search on Google or other search engines, you want to make sure your article will come in or at least have a chance to. Therefore writing SEO-friendly articles is crucial - you want to be visible!
Get Your Article to Go "Viral"
I got a little lucky on here and had one of my first articles, The Top 5 Money Books of All-Time, go "viral" after the author of one of the books mentioned posted it on his Facebook page. I believe he did so because I was an active user on his page, always commenting and interacting with the author, who had over 10,000 fans on his page.
That article made me about $30 alone in just my second month at InfoBarrel! I've made a little less per month since then, but still estastic at the potential money to be made here at InfoBarrel.
My tip here is to post your stories on blogs, private sites, etc. You never know who is going to read your article. If they like it, they may post it on their Facebook page, Twitter, etc.
When your done writing, post your story on Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, etc. It could be worth the extra effort!
I hope you found this article useful and that you now know that it is possible to make money on InfoBarrel blogging. With a little time, effort, and practice, you can build a stready stream of passive income in no time, from working at home!
