Your drive to develop a blog that creates a steady revenue stream is important. Try to find the right Internet tools and strategies to attract a regular blog audience. If you can provide meaningful content in your blog, your readers will return again and again.

Customers want information on which they can rely on, and you must deliver this information. Because you want to give blog readers a solid product, try these 8 strategies to generate blog profits:

1. Determine the purpose and audience for your blog – Are you starting your blog for a specific reason? Do you plan to blog just to share your thoughts with the blogosphere? Your blogs purpose influences the audience for which you will create content. If you drill down to the details of the blog you want to create, you will be poised to start earning money in the blogosphere.

2. Select a blog site – Some bloggers post their blog in their personal server or web site. Others choose a web site with free web hosting or a free blog provider such as Blogger or WordPress. When you choose where to publish your blog, remember that free templates offered by blog platforms offer a distinct advantage. You must decide which blog host or web site fits your blog design.

3. Develop or purchase unique content for your blog – In order to set your blog apart from millions of other blogs, you have to create blog posts that hold people’s attention once they visit your site. If you choose a theme for a niche blog, you must ensure that your web content (including articles, videos, and tutorials) is related to the niche audience.

4. Add new features – Like a website, a blog is an interactive web format. You can provide various features, including RSS feed, an area for users to post comments, third party advertisements, third party widgets, links to affiliate sites, photographs, videos, tutorials, and e-books. At first you might think you are limited to standard features offered by a blog provider. However, when you work with HTML, you can add or change the code to accommodate new features. For example, you can paste the HTML code for an e-book anywhere in your blog code.

5. Add Google Features – You can set yo Google Adsense and Google AdWords on just any web site or blog. Remember that AdSense means that Google places ads for other companies on your blog pages. In the AdWords program, you pay a fee for Google to display your business ad (i.e. the name of your blog) on other web sites. Google recommends that advertisers pay a minimum of $50 month for the AdWords service.

6. Add posts but with useful information – In order to build traffic to your web site, unleash the power of search engines, including Google, Yahoo!, and MSN. When you create posts, think about what information you can provide and what links you can include for further reading.

7. Submit free articles to web directories – If you write an article on a topic related o your niche blog and submit yo a n online article directory, you can mention your blog in the short biography at the end of your article.

8. Generate more traffic to your blog – If you attract regular readers, they can subscribe to your RSS feed and post it on their web site with a link back. Their web visitors may click on the RSS feed (i.e. your blog feed on their site). When visitors like what they read, they can click through to your site. Keep in mind that more Click-through that users perform on your Google ads; you will earn more for your AdSense account. You can also join a blogger community or bookmark your blog on a site like Stumble upon. If you plan to generate a respectable passive income from your blog, you have to build contacts. Bloggers and readers of bookmarking sites are potential contacts who can channel more traffic to your blog.

The blog is a powerful way to generate income if you can attract readers and keep them loyal to your blog. You can also sell ad space on your blog if you can prove your significant traffic. Blogging changes rapidly as users around the world use the Internet to read and create blogs. Make your blog stand out from the rest by providing readers with excellent content and they will refer more subscribers to your blog.

Just remember, after u do that 8 strategy and sure your blog can produce earning if you monetize it, actually there is 1 simple method to immediately make money from it.

It’s by just flipping it. Yes, flipping site or sell that blog. Flipping site is so popular nowadays and the market is available. Look on some forum in the buy sell trade area and search for “Sites” subthread, sell it there. Actually blog which well prepared (have traffic, niche topic, etc..) can be sold on $50-$100 range or more

I think Akira, all our work will go waste and we get no future income. I don’t like selling sites just for money.
