How to make money with a blog or website

If we have a blog or a website we can make money with Google Adsense and Amazon ads without difficulty

Do we have a passion for writing or do we like to run a blog or website based on our passions?

These passions can be transformed into an opportunity to earn money in a simple way, using some tools made available by the great giants to be able to earn real figures with any blog or website.

In this guide we will show you how to make money using Google Adsense and the affiliate service offered by Amazon , plus at the end of the article we will show you the alternatives to these two services that we can integrate into our sites to be able to replace them or to earn even more interesting figures, without compromising the reading or browsing experience on our site (better not to overdo the advertisements and banners, you risk to make the users interested in the site or the blog escape).

How to make money with Google Adsense

Google Adsense is one of the most famous services to start monetizing with your site or blog; this service offers you the possibility to integrate advertising banners created in collaboration with a large number of publishers, who will be happy to pay a fee to appear on your site (also based on the type of topic).

The simplest way to make money with Google Adsense is to manage a blog on the Blogger platform, owned by Google and therefore well integrated with the banner service.

First of all then open your blog on this platform using the link available here -> Blogger .

Click on the button at the top right Login to enter the Google Account credentials (we can also use the account created with the Android smartphone, to manage Gmail or YouTube, so much is the same) and create a new blog from nothing using the tools provided by the platform, starting to write numerous posts and embellishing the site with a unique and attractive layout.

Once you start your blogging activity, you can start making money with Google Adsense by opening the Blogger dashboard and clicking on the Profit menu ; you will be asked if you want to participate in the Adsense program and if you want to start using it on the blogs you manage through Blogger, confirm where necessary and wait for the Adsense authorization (it could take months to get the ok, also based on the number of articles and visits generated by your blog).

If our blog is suitable for displaying Adsense banners, we will see the Profits menu after a while, as shown in the image below.

We activate the item Show ads on the blog and select how to display the banners among the options offered below.

Alternatively we can manually place banners either on Blogger or any other site by opening the Adsense web page (if we have been authorized) and creating our banners using the My ads -> Content -> Ad units menu .

On this page we click on New ad unit and decide the size of the banner and its contents.

In this way we will get the HTML code to use on Blogger or on other sites in our possession in order to integrate Adsense banners and start earning.

Earnings are proportionate to both visits to the site and the percentage of clicks users make on the banners shown: in order to earn important figures we will have to generate at least 100,000 monthly visits , so as to at least get the costs for managing the site and expand its functionality .

Obviously, if we are not able to manage banner codes or have no experience in managing a site, let us limit ourselves to using Blogger or let us help from professionals in the sector, only in this way will we be able to obtain real profits.

How to make money with Amazon

In addition to Adsense we can earn with a blog or with a website creating buying guides or product reviews using the links offered by Amazon, which allow you to earn a percentage based on the number of visits and purchases made through these links (users will be followed through cookies, so whoever arrives on Amazon starting from your link could also make you earn for your future purchases).

We use the Amazon account already used for purchases, to be entered as login credentials by clicking on Log in or Sign up for free at the top right.

We fill in the forms required to register and choose a personal tag to add to our affiliation links, then we await confirmation from Amazon to participate in the program (even in this case it could take days or months to be authorized).

Once in possession of the authorization, it uses the tool offered by the site to generate affiliate links with your personalized tag (indispensable for tracking users) or we perform a search on Amazon of any object and, at the end of the URL link, we add the tag (of the type & tag = personal-personal-21 ).

Now we will only have to copy the URL address with the personal tag provided by Amazon and insert it in our posts, in our buying guides or in our reviews to be able to provide a quick link for the purchase by users and same time earn in percentage on their purchases.

In order to earn seriously on Amazon, very high numbers are required, plus the earnings vary according to the category of products we recommend (very low with technology and IT, much higher with books and products for the kitchen): to see interesting revenues over 15,000 user profiling may be required, of which at least half must purchase something after clicking on our tagged link.
