I'm nearing two months of writing and just wondering how others are monetizing their sites. I only use AdSense right now. Any other platforms you all use?

 

Thanks for the help!

Aside from AdSense, I've been using a CPM advertising platform that specializes in food blogs for me, well, food blog. I've got a few affiliate links that pay me very little, but the overwhelming majority of my online income comes from ebooks.

 I'm looking for editors, beta-readers, and some demographic research for my upcoming novel, Once Upon a Saturn Moon. If you like reading soft sci-fi thrillers, maybe with a touch of romance thrown in, you can find more information at http://seampublishing.com/once…..aturn-moon

I've tried amazon, flexoffers, and cj but for my site adsense still performs the best.

My website is only 2 months old and my traffic fairly low, so I'm not receiving much ad revenue. But I'm signed up with AdSense, Amazon Associates and about 50 affiliate programs through CJ, LinkOffers, LinkShare and E-Junkie.

Hi Frugaling,

Be patient with the income, it takes awhile. All the comments above are great, but you need to build traffic before anything will give you much of a payout. Continue building traffic, do some guest posting, start a newsletter to get your traffic up.

Good luck and keep on interacting on Yakezie, great reputation builder with others.

I could not agree more with Barb. The income can take time to build, which is just another reason why building traffic needs to be a focus- especially in the early stages.

I have tried skimlinks but didn't manage to configure it well so there were a ton of links on each post and I removed it quickly. Affiliate is slowly building up, direct advertising and banners are the main stream so far, then Adsense.

I wrote a post about that here, but like Barb said, it does take time…if it happens.

Build traffic, grow the blog.  That's most important now, don't worry about earning any money any time soon.  What you do now can help you accomplish what you're looking for later.

I will add building relationships is the foundation for growth.  Spend the time to build a solid foundation and the rest will happen.

I like Amazon best of the affiliates but still don't earn much from that (think $10 to $20 a month).  I have tried flex offers but haven't gotten any revenue from them after having ads up on several sites for months.
