Make Money off of Adsense? Site Promotion?
August 7, 2010 9:31pm CST
About a month ago I started a video blog on makeup tutorials, beauty tips, product reviews and mixtapes. I got an Adsense account and set it up on my blog, only to find how hard it is for me to get enough traffic to make money. I update frequently and respond quickly to my viewers, I also promote it through my social networking sites, but to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions of free ways to get web traffic to my blog? I'm having a lot of fun with it, and if I could get paid for it, that would be even better! While I'm at it please check out my blog http://bandbwithmsb.blogspot.com

Hi, you mention that you are promoting through social networking sites, are you also using directories to create backlinks to your article posts. It's a great way of attracting visitors and also helping with getting search engines to nice your content. There is a very useful article on this which can be found here http://hubpages.com/hub/HubPages-My-Backlink-Strategy-to-Drive-Traffic-and-Increase-Earnings - which although is focussed on writing on hubpages is exactly the same for writing on your blog (I have no affiliation with this article). You could also look into doing some article writing for sites such as hubpages and ezine as it is free and will help generate more traffic.

Thank you so much for the advice! I am going to check those sites out right now. I am determined to make money online, no matter how long it takes, or what it takes (within reason of course!) I am also going to try some freelance writing, just started on Elance, so we will see how that goes as well! I appreciate the feedback!
