The best thing about blogging is that there are no rules. You can write about anything you want. A self-publisher’s dream! There are some things you can do though to maximize your Google Adsense profits. Narrow your subject. Don’t just write about shopping. Write about shopping for antique dresser drawer pulls. Write every day. Have a blog at more than one site. If you develop a readership, you’re more likely to increase your profits.

Write about something you know or want to know or at the very least care about. If you try to write a great blog based on a “hot keyword” yet it’s something you could care less about, you’ll likely not stay with it long. Experiment and see what works for you. You can write based on your own opinion or something factual. You can review a product or service or a movie. Read other people’s blogs and notice how many reads they’re getting. Above all, have fun. After all, it’s free and if you’re persistent you’ll see your Google Adsense dollars adding up.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is probably the quickest and the easiest way of making real business on the Internet. You don't need to get your own merchandise, you simply sell other people's goods or services. You don't even need a merchant account, and sometimes it's possible to start out without even having your own website. Though if you are serious about your affiliated business you'd better to have a website of your own.

Most of the top companies on the web have affiliate programs. Amazon, AT&T, Barnes & Noble, Chase bank, Delta airlines, Gap, KMart and Walmart are just a few examples. Did you know that you can be paid a commission to promote online products of any of these companies? But the best thing about affiliate marketing is that it is so easy to set up business relationship with your affiliate partners.

Where to pick up a profitable affiliate program?

There are dozens of affiliate networks and affiliate program directories on the Internet. The easiest way is to go to affiliate network or affiliate program directory and sign up for a partnership that suits your website topic. The major affiliate networks like ClickBank or Commission Junction have thousands of affiliate programs in all sorts of categories. You can find a listing of multiple affiliate networks at:

How to monetize your promotional activity?

The mostst rapid way to make money on the Internet is to promote affiliate programs directly using Google Adwords. You simply promote your affiliate partner's goods by means of Google ads. This way you can start promotional campaign in half an hour. However, it is getting more and more expensive to advertise with Google Adwords as there are lots of people doing the same and there is too much competition making money this way.

Use more reliable strategies to make money

Focus on a particular niche area. Launching a web site with content reflecting a narrowly focused product or service niche is a well known method of gaining web traffic in your area of specialty. Let's say you decide to do a site on matchmaking. You could then join all the affiliate programs concerning matchmaking. You can find many of them through the major networks, but you might also need to search on Google for something like ? ?matchmaking affiliate program'. An excellent resource that can help you determining relevant and focused areas to fill your site with is called NicheBot. They offer innovative tools to research and pinpoint market niches for your web site based on the WordTracker database and Google.

Create a website that provides a solution

In order to develop a solid selling strategy, you have to penetrate into your target market. Blogs and forums are the "perfect" place to conduct a research, before creating a marketing strategy. Once you meet your target cyber audience, start recording their problems, concerns and inclinations. After you created a "Problem List", pinpoint your target market's problems, with identical solutions. Start researching for products online, with the parameters you've developed. These products must be solution-oriented and offer an affiliate program! Then you must create either testimonial pages or review pages that discuss and pre-sell the product or service you are affiliated with. Many programs actually provide either an article or recommended text to sell their products for you and allow reproduction of those articles with your links embedded. This is the best method of getting increased orders for your chosen affiliate programs.

Search Engine Optimization can make you a lot of money

One more approach to the affiliate marketing is to build lots of little mini sites focusing on different keyword phrases that people are searching for. Thus you can get free search engine listings in Google and other search engines. This is a great strategy because it is based on the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and the traffic that you get is free. SEO is great and can make you a lot of money but it is also quite tricky. It is becoming more complex as more and more webmasters participate. But the basics applied to your site can increase profitability dramatically over time.

As I said, it becomes not so easy to climb the top of the search engines nowadays. It requires a lot of knowledge, and quite a bit of effort. Normally it is going to take months of dedication to reach search engine tops. Correct usage of title tags reflecting individual page content is one of the most critical points of SEO techniques. Many webmasters write a master title tag and apply that site-wide. This is the worst thing you could do for search engine ranking. Learn more SEO technics here:

If you've succeeded implementing all the above mentioned strategies, your website is guaranteed to become one of the leaders in your specific keyword niche. As a keyword niche leader you'll be receiving great amounts of targeted traffic, which in it's turn will prowide you with steady streams of affiliate income.
