A Blog is a must have for every internet marketer out there. You cannot just rely on the old techniques. You must wake up to web marketing. If know nothing about making money with your blog, then these 8 steps are for you:

The first step to create money from your blog is to drive traffic to it. You must learn how to optimize your blog so search engines will index it. You can also use other traffic generating tools such as article marketing, forum posting, etc.
- Optimize your blog name.
Blog names, like any other domain names, must have these characteristics in order to drive traffic to your blog: they must contain relevant keywords, contain a maximum of 30 characters, be easy to spell, easy to remember, and must communicate what the whole blog is all about. A personal preference is to have a maximum of four words in the title, no more.
- Advertise on your blog.
This is the easiest way to convert your traffic to instant money. You can opt to use Google adsense and every time your visitors click these ads, you will earn instant cash. Or you can advertise products through ClickBank Ad Rotator, or use affiliate links to products. Choose your products carefully, don’t sell poor quality items or it will come back to haunt you.
- Link building.
Exchange links with other websites or blogs that share your blog topic. Remember, search engines will rank your blog based on the quantity and quality of links pointing to it.
- Join paid blogging networks.
You can also make money by writing reviews and opinions on various products and services offered online.
