Not earning enough to quit your day job?
Saving money for your next vacation?
Bills going through the roof and looking for some extra money?
Want to buy that new computer gadget that you have your eyes on?
Well, let me share some solid techniques to make money from your blog. These are not some run-of-the-mill techniques that every other blogger preaches about. Rather these are my personally tested and tried methods for a full time income. Bear in mind that we’re after measurable and quantifiable results. The competition is very stiff so every advantage you can get is vital. Blogging, just like any business/job, is one huge poker game where you have to put in something (quality content) to win big (revenue). And ya.. don’t leave your job yet
1. Get Sponsors for your Blog
Once your blog starts getting traffic, try and contact private companies that are operating in your niche area and get them to sponsor your blog. Even if its for a small amount, it adds up to your blog earnings. Gradually, when your blog ranks higher on the search engines, there are chances of getting better and high-paying sponsors. Try and provide all the details about your blog like traffic stats, search engine rankings, specialization area, unique visitors and keyword popularity. Also mention how your blog will help them in promoting their brand products. Do not get disheartened if you fail to get sponsors for the first time. Keep trying and make targets for yourself.

Today, I was going through my daily news and came across something which I had to share with all of you. The news mentioned about the rocketing number of online blogs and the accelerated spread of bloggers. I just made this graphic from the statistics that were provided as per Technorati. Count yourself in if you are a blogger !
When considering the inbound links to your website, you just can’t get enough of them. Getting people to link to your website isn’t easy but that’s the only way to get traffic and of course, the moolah! Webmasters and bloggers know many ways to build incoming links and use them daily to acquire more and more links.
After careful examination, I have consolidated ten most popular link building techniques into a list and here they are, for your reading pleasure!
1. Link Exchange
The most widely used and predominant link building technique is the exchange of links with other like-minded websites. This can be done through one-way link exchange, reciprocal link exchange or a clever three-way link exchange. One way link exchanges are hard to do as it only requires the target website to link back to you. People will only link to your website if they are paid or in lieu of any other incentive.
Reciprocal link exchanges are easy because you are also putting the target website’s link on your website, therefore, the give and take rule applies here.
Finally, there is the little known three-way link exchange technique. Let me give you an example of how its done. Say, you own websites “A” & “B” and want good inbound links for website “A”. You go out and do a three-way link exchange with a webmaster who owns the website “C”. When doing the exchange, you put C’s link on your website “B” (instead of putting it on website “A”), and C puts “A” link on their website. So, you are basically gaining one way link for your website “A” without losing any Page value.
In order to initiate a link exchange, you will have to contact a website’s administrator by sending an email stating what you want to do. Make sure your e-mail is courteous and you explain what benefit the other website will get out of the link exchange. You can also try visiting different webmaster forums where you can find many people wanting to do link exchanges.
2. Social Bookmarking Websites
With the introduction of social bookmarking websites like Del.icio.us, Stumbleupon, Redditt, Digg etc., getting targetted traffic to your website is easier than before. People will bookmark your website if it is useful to them and has good content. Every person who bookmarks your website helps you in getting an incoming link.
You can link to the bookmarking sites so that its easy for your visitors to bookmark your website. WordPress users can even download plugins which automatically put bookmarking links under your individual posts. Once someone bookmarks your website, there are chances that he will return back to your website sometime later. He might even share that bookmark with his friends/family which can get you more visitors.
