Table of Contents
Now a days, owning a blog or starting a blog is nothing great, but earning from a blog is something big. So, today I am going to concentrate on the different ways that you can monetize your blog for higher profits. Many newbies are aware of adsense only, but there are lot of opportunities out there.

Blogging is nothing but creating your own opportunities. So,why to stop with adsense? Just explore other options and alternatives. I have seen many people who stopped blogging after their adsense account got disabled.

To be frank, many probloggers are not earning huge from adsense. In a practical view, if I am writing about the blog tips, then obviously my visitors are bloggers. So, they know why the ads are getting displayed and what happens if they click on the ads. So,stop looking at adsense approvals and customizing your blog for adsense. There are many people out there who will keep on customizing templates,changing templates and removing some links for adsense approval. For those people, stop trying and start reading this.

Affliate Programs:

I hope these are the best programs through which we can earn more money from. Affliates are nothing but displaying an advertisement and asking visitors for a sale or signup. Just research on the companies in your niche and contact them about the business and set a deal with them like “I will bring more registrations for you and I will charge $2 per registration”.

There are many ways to get affiliates on your blog and this is one of them, Try something new and one day you will stand at the top.

For example, consider problogger Imran, he is not depending much on adsense, he is mainly targeting on affiliates, if you see his blog, there will be a hard disk advertisement which is bringing him more profits. So, start it out today.

If you are in tech niche, yes obviously you have a better edge than others.
