How to Start Blogging for money?

I don’t like complicated posts myself, and this one is going to be straight to the topic. So when you find it on Google you can start blogging for the money right away.

You need to look what people are buying, online or offline it doesn’t matter, as long it’s the business you’re writing about. Did it ever occur you that some posts are written to get money? They are helpful of course, but they are created to bring money in.

For example when you want to change hosting for your website or blog because your business depends on it and you cannot allow it to be offline from time to time, you want it online for 99% of the time. And what do you do? You go to the search engine and you probably type something like: “Top 10 Web Hosting Companies with 99% uptime”  and the information you find is very valuable.

Now, what you probably don’t know is that blogger who wrote that blog post researched the topic well, and wrote that amazing piece of content in order to make money. We all need to earn our money, and if we help someone along the way, it’s even better.

Not all paid links violate our guidelines. Buying and selling links is a normal part of the economy of the web when done for advertising purposes, and not for manipulation of search results. Here is what Google says:

Links purchased for advertising should be designated as such. This can be done in several ways, such as:

  • Adding a rel=”nofollow” attribute to the <a> tag
  • Redirecting the links to an intermediate page that is blocked from search engines with a robots.txt file


So as you can see, you can blog for money and make money online as long as you follow the rules of the search engines.

  1. Yeps, James. For sure we can make money from blogging. What you just mentioned I believe is affiliate marketing and link selling here.

    I personally rejected a few of advertisers that wanted to place a link on my post simply because they want them to be “dofollow”.

    I saying this is because I share the same thinking as you – follow Google’s guideline. 😉

    • That is true, affiliate marketing and link selling, but we always need to make sure that we follow google guidelines.

      thanks for stopping by Alan 🙂

    • Hi, you can try in text link advertising like infolinks. You will get accepted fast and can start making some good money.

  2. Hi James,
    Blogging is definitely a method to make money online. But I somewhat disagree with you on your point that we don’t need a blog to make money.
    I know that blogger and squidoo are great as I myself have used them for long time. But ever since I moved to wordpress, I have been a big fan of this CMS. If you want to be a true blogger then wordpress is a must.

    • Hi Vineet, sorry but I need to disagree with you too, first money that I made online couple years back was with my blogger writing and advertising businesses inside the post.

      It’s all bout the value you give to your readers, not the platform or cms you use.

      Thank you for comment and for stopping by 🙂
