Linkworth For Bloggers

Linkworth is a marketing company that has several different programs that bloggers can use to monetize their blogs. It is also the only one that I have actually gotten paid by(actually sending me the money). So far anyway.

The company requires that you have your own domain name and not be hosted on a free platform such as Blogger or WordPress.com.

You can sell space for banner ads of all sizes including the header banners that many bloggers place just under the header on their blogs and the popular 125 x 125 buttons that you see just about everywhere.

They have several different ways of selling text links. One of them is the LinkMura where several different links rotate. Another is to sell specific keywords that are in your content.

They also have the PPC ads that are connected to words in your content. When a reader mouses over the words a pop up ad appears and you make money every time a reader clicks on the ad.

You can sell full page ads called bulletin boards but I haven’t actually seen one of those yet.

You can also get some sponsored posts to do if you want.

What I like about Linkworth is that you have several different options all in one place and all of them could help you make some money with your blog. You can choose which ones you want to do. If you change your mind later you can just change your preferences in your set up.

And once you get it set up you don’t really have to do anything else if you don’t want to. You can set it up with their plug in so everything is done automatically.

If you do that be sure you go through and choose what kinds of ads you don’t want-I blocked all ads that had anything to do with gambling, dating sites, and adult sites.

Their support people are really great too. They answer you fast and are very helpful.

What I don’t much like about Linkworth is that their site takes some getting used to. It isn’t easy to figure out where everything is and how it works.

It is worth the trouble though. I have made some money each month since I signed up with them. And if you use paypal the payout is only $25 so you get paid quicker. If you prefer checks or direct deposit you can do those as well but the payout level is higher.

I would appreciate it if you use my link if you sign up. If you need any help with the program contact me and I will do my best to help.

Problogger Secrets For Blogging Your Way To A Six-Figure Income Review

Problogger Secrets For Blogging Your Way To A Six-Figure Income Review

ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income By Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett is a pretty good book. I read the second edition which came out in 2010 according to the publishers page. I thought some of the information might be outdated because things change so fast on the internet but from what I can tell it is still just as good advice as it ever was.

Of course since both of the authors have been professional bloggers for a while now they do tend to talk about some things that are too advanced for me (for now anyway) such as buying and selling blogs. But who knows I might get there eventually and it if so it will be good to know where to find information about doing that!

The book contains lots of information for newbies too. One chapter is all about setting up a blog. Another is about writing a blog. There are chapters about income and earning strategies, promotion and marketing, social media and blogging, and secrets of successful blogs.

This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to learn about  making money from blogging. A lot of this information can be found online of course. The authors have a lot of it on the blogs they write for such as  Problogger, Copyblogger, and chrisg.com.

I like having books myself. You can grab a book and read through it even when the internet is down. And you don’t have to wait for a site to load. You can find this book at many libraries too…my local one has a copy. So you have no excuse not to check it out!
