How Can I Make Money With My Blog?
(*For more information about Adsense, please be sure to visit my The Adsense Consultant Blog)
Before you can join the adsense program you will have to submit the URL of your website or blog so that it can be reviewed and approved. Once your site is approved then you can go through the steps of picking the layout of your Adsense Ads - ie color and size. HOWEVER you DON'T get to pick out the specific ads that will be appearing on your site because that will be determined by the content on your site.
Just in case you're wondering there have been some Adsense Millionaires out there!
Of course Google's Adsense Program is not the only affiliate ad-related program out there - although I haven't really seen any that I like enough yet!
If you do decide to find out more about these other affiliate programs I advise you to read everything over carefully so that you will not get scammed!
If your blog (or website) is very popular then you may be able to have the advertisers come to YOU! Perez Hilton is a very good example of this! His celebrity-related blog became SO popular that he charges advertisers $6,000 a week to advertise on his blog!
