    Free Advertisement for making money where i can post my own ads, after dat i can publish the ads for which i'll be paid for, i can post the articles for the companies on my blog for which companies will pay me for publishing thier articles on my blog.. there are lot more things which can generate but for this we have to update our blog regularly as if the blog will not be having good traffic ranking, it will not help us in generating a single penny for us.

    So you blog for yourself? You earn through adsense?

    I blog primarily for my company, so, I guess you could say I am blogging for money. However, I do not have ads whatsoever on my blog, and the traffic is not incentivized.

    Well, my desire is that my clients stay on the company's website for as long as they can. Giving them interesting posts to read will surely improve my CR ranking. Also, if someone reads the blog, he/she might become interested in becoming our client after the blog is read.

    Certainly, this is a good way to use blog for enhancing business. I may try to incorporate what I have learned from you. Blog is a good source of money this way also.

    correct me if i am wrong. by experience i find that a blog on a website is a nice way to keep the site updated on a regular basis, which means SEs will crawl it more often because of the fresh content, which can result in higher rankings in the SEs.

    also a blog is a good avenue to get your brand out there. the website will do that, but the blog's unique voice will enhance it.

    When you get paid to blog, the material you provide usually needs to be original and once posted, the copyright and use goes to the network paying you. If you have your own blog on the same or similar subject, you usually are not allowed to use that same material on both.

    In addition to getting paid directly for blogging, there are also a number of other ways that you can earn money such as paid advertising through such programs as Google Adsense, text link advertising, affiliate programs, etc. There are advantages and disadvantages to each method of earning money by blogging and which you pursue depends heavily on how you blog and what you are looking to get out of your blogging.

    Please guide about methods of encashing other than adsense.

    I blog for the benefit of my client sites. And I make money from those blogs thru ads, I always update it with useful and quality content.

    How to generate money with them? Click your own ads. LOL

    I really don't blog for money. It's some kind of a passion. And I also use my blog to provide inbound links for the sites I handled before...

    Yes, many webmaster just blog for getting backlink for their main site as it would be relevant backlink which would be good for your website and will help you for SERP.

    I found that the easiest way to make money is to ad Adsense ads. Later on I started experimenting with Affiliate ads, it was more work, but I made more.

    My traffic hasn't been affected much by the ads, but I don't have that many.

    Less work for adsense if you have a really good guide. Affiliates are just fine but it takes time to make money out of them

    Having a adsense code on the website and then regularly updating the website with content.... not all at once and not once in a while keep it updated regularly ... build some backlinks and submit to social bookmarkign websites!

    I have more success with my sites than with my blogs. The blogs bring in occasional dollars...

    well, i'm trying to blog for money, but that's rather just some additional income from the advertising and not 'pure blog for money'.
    And best traffic inflow is seo optimization, adwords and building hard links.
