Whenever we look for ways to make money online we come across those titles like: Make money with blogging, Here are 10 ways to make money with your blog, Secrets to making money with a blogging and so on and so forth. Some people have already understood how to do so and have mastered this tip and are making quite a good income out of it, while others are still looking for ways and methods that can really help them generate money from blogging. In this post I will give you top 5 ways to generate money with blogging if you use them effevtively. But before starting this article, I would like to point out that this method (blogging) is not a get rich quick scheme, and that it depends on the efforts and the content that a blogger offers. For some bloggers, results may appear fast, while it may take years for others to show. So let's start.

1- Google Adsense

Maybe you have heard about this right? Yes, this is prpbably one of the most famous ways that bloggers and website owners can do in order to make money with their blogs. It is a program that allows bloggers and websites owners to display google ads on their blogs and websites and by doing so both, Google and bloggers are going to earn. Google takes the big cut, and bloggers get a percentage of it. Paid per impression and paid per click are the two main ways by which bloggers can make money from adsense. Paid per impression, the viewers do not have to click on the ad in order for the blogger to receive an income, they are paid for how many times the viewer has seen the ad. In Paid per click, bloggers are paid whenever someone clicks on the ad.

2- Affiliate Marketing

This is when bloggers and website owners promote a company or services and products of that company. Bloggers are given a URL link that leads viewers to the company's website. If the viewr clicks that link and makes a purchase, the blogger takes commission. There are a few ways through which you get paid for being an affiliate:

- You get paid a percentage of the sale:  Whenever a viewer clicks your link and makes a purchase you get a percentage. This percentage can be high or low and depends on the product you are promoting.

 - You get paid per lead: Bloggers here get paid with a fixed amount. This happens when viewers use your affiliate link to sign up for the company you are promoting, and you are paid as a result of that. paid per lead are generally low (Sometimes only few cents).

- You get paid a fixed amount: Whenever a visitor of your website make a purchase you get paid with fixed amount instead of a percentage.

3- Selling ads space on your blog or website:

When a blog or a website becomes famous and and generates more traffic, companies become interested about it and the owner will be able to sell some spaces of his blog or website to these companies on which they put their ads. These ads are usually placed in the header or in the sidebar and sometimes below the blog posts.

4- Writing sponsored posts:

As mentionned earlier above, when a blog or a website generates a lot of traffic, compnaies may ask the owner of the website to write a post about them or about their product. Here the blogger can negotiate with the compnay and set a price for how much he will write that post. 

5- Selling your own products:

If you think that your blog is a selling tool only for others then you are wrong. The truth is that you can also use your blog to sell your own products or services. Write posts about the product or place the ads of this product on you blog  and make sells. This way can be so effective if the product or the service you are promoting matchs the niche your blog is tackling.
