I have been blogging around for almost one year and in the process have created and dumped many blogs. Why? Because they were not earning me a dime! When I first started to blog, I knew just one monetization method for blogs and that was Google Adsense. I created blogs on weebly and Blogspot and used Adsense in an attempt to make me some cash. Needless to say, Adsense never made me huge bucks! The highest money I ever got for a click was $0.45. Only Junkamania earns me some cash via Adsense. So, it motivates me to write some healthy posts here!
Now here are the reasons why Google Adsense does not make everyone big money:

  • Adsense does not make big money for everyone. The earnings you get via Adsense depends on the topic you are blogging on. Its usually called a niche topic.
  • Not everyone knows how to optimise their posts for earning via Adsense. Of course, there is a research to be done to find the best earning cum low competition keywords. It takes most of your time but can be done easily with the help of keyword trackers or keyword suggestion tools like.
  • Many of the ads earn you less than a cent. This is bad as you are losing a lot of money. This is because the advertiser paid small money for the keywords you are using in your posts or this is because you chose the worst earning niche.
  • Suggest a reason and get a backlink
Which are the worst earning popular niche topics?
  1. Gaming: Dunno why! Everyone love games and most buy them. God knows why Game creators and advertisers spend less on their Adwords campaign.
  2. Celebrity: Worst niche pays the worst.
  3. You suggest and get a backlink.
Which are the highest earning popular niche topics?
  1. Health: Health tops and bags many highest paying niche keywords.
  2. Finance:Whopping number of highest paying keywords belong to this niche.
  3. Make money niche: Pays well but not the highest
  4. Technology:Especially the tech gadget niche topic.
  5. Suggest and earn a backlink.
Now how to actually earn from Adsense?
Follow the following steps and cash Google checks every month or the worst one year, but guaranteed see money coming via Adsense.
  1. Rush to Hubpages and sign up.
  2. Do some research on what people are looking for. Use the keword tracker to find the best paying cum low competition keywords for the thing you wanna write on. You can sit down and write an article of abou 250 words on the either one of the 5 best paying popular niche topics.
  3. You can give your Adsense ID to Hubpages(You will understand all these when you sign up) so that they display your Google Ads along with your article.
  4. When someone clicks on your ads, HubPages keeps the 40% of the per click revenue generated and you get 60%, which is paid by Google.
  5. 1 article is not enough. Try and write at least one hub per day and take your hub toll to at least 50.
  6. 'WHATEVER IS SEEN, SELLS!' Keep this in your mind and make attractive as well as search engine friendly titles. Don't try to be too fancy! Even the simplest titles catch more attention!
  7. Whats the catch? No catches. You can make even more money from Ebay sales commission, Amazon sales commission as well as Konterra PPC commission, all from one little hub.
  8. You will surely get your first Adsense check within a month and worst will be an year!

But I want all the 100% of the revenue per click. What should I do?
Oh! So you want 100% revenue generated from Adsense, then do the following:
  1. Go to godaddy.com
  2. Register a domain name at godaddy.com. Register such a name that will better represent your product you are selling or a thing you wanna write(For example you wanna write on a particular gadget and you are going to dedicate your full site to it, then come with a domain name like particulargadget.com.) You need to pay for this, anything from $1 to $200, depending on the domain name.(While writing this article, I found out that Godaddy are selling (.info) domains names for 0.89 a year. Check it out!)
  3. Host your site at a free webhost like 000webhost.com for free!
  4. Write two to four articles revolving around the product you want to sell to earn comissions(Remeber that you are selling other's things)
  5. Search for the best paying cum low competition keywords for your articles suitable to the product you wanna sell. Like for example, I wanna sell someone's laptop on Ebay to earn commissions, then I will repeat 'buy a laptop' or 'cool laptop' more than twice in each of the four articles.
  6. Now you have to do all this by yourself-Get traffic! Without which you cannot earn.
  7. Submitting your articles at ezinearticles.com can get you organic visitors and potential buyers of the product you're gonna sell.
  8. Thus all revenue generated+ commissions got are all 100% yours!

If you don't want to buy a domain name, you can make such niche sites on Blogspot.com or Wordpress.com, which are totally free. Thus, everything for free and all your revenue to you. This can be called a 'Zero investment business'!
At Hubpages there are already a lots of visitors and hubbers, so that you don't have to get traffic. Hence I recommend Hubpages over making your own niche site.
But you have your own brain to think rationally. What do you say?

Lynell Emmanuel Neri, 16 years old Philipino blogger puts his thoughts on making money online and wants all the Junkamania readers to express their thoughts on this.
Making money online –where else could someone go, with global crisis still releasing its smokes and continues to burn other people with its heating when it come contact with people despite of the extinguishers, with the staggering number of jobless individuals and still counting where even new graduates of various universities would boggled themselves where could they be dumped, lucky for those who would reach the garbage can, but most would not even end up in the soil but in the deep pit where they would met other with the same situation.
With the large number of people experiencing it, a something of the same kind, large, spacious, gigantic in nature, would be able to cater them. Indeed, it is the Internet. It is in the Internet where they are putting their last hopes to (including to God too). But vast as their hopes, Internet is roamed by alligators (figuratively) despite of the zoo keepers who tried to feed them up. Bound by the harsh experience, these alligators bite everything they can cling on. They are the one who have fallen in the pit, put hope in the Internet but, unfortunately, have fallen equal parts to how high they have hoped.
I am one of those alligators who is still figuring out the real way to get outta the pit and that will be possible when I make true money online. So far I have found myLot to be the best paid forum online and its a superb way to earn from tasks, discussion threads, replies, etc. Like Boney said, I have just signed up with Triond and gotta sit down to write an article for them. So that I don't remain an alligator in the pit anymore. The Junkamania blog is simply superb! Cheers!

Guest Post-My Love MyLot!

I have started a series of guest posts on my blog to update this blog's content for my readers regularly. You can get a recognition on this blog via a guest post. All you get from me is a backlink to your blog. This article is yours, so the referral links in this article are also yours. Enjoy! To guest post email me at boneysharaon@gmail.com

This is the second article of the Junkamania Guest Post Series. In this article, Heather Echola or GardenGerty from Mylot, age 56, McPherson, Kansas, USA has shared with the Junkamania readers, her myLot experience.
I was the kid in school who enjoyed reading the dictionary and encyclopedia. Knowing that about me, you can imagine the kind of heaven I am in when I have an internet connection. You may find me drifting from topic to topic with hardly a pause except to get a cup of coffee. I find that the internet is a source of socializing, earning and learning all wrapped up in one entity.

While exploring the internet, I have found some interesting earning sites, as well as information sites. The site I have been most active on is called MyLot. Since MyLot was my first earning site, it is also my first love. It is a social site, an information site and best of all it is paid to post. I have explored other earnings sites, but as I have said, MyLot is my first love. I have friends, I have earnings, I have opportunities to read the news, and blogs and post comments about them. The networking opportunities have been awesome, and I have also gained freelancing opportunities through the site. MyLot is one of my favorite aspects of the internet.

Heather Echola's tips to earn big on myLot:
"For those who want to earn at MyLot, my advice is to add friends. That was the first thing that helped me. I looked at discussions, and when someone in a discussion looked interesting to me, I requested their friendship. My first attempts at posting discussions were a bit lackluster, and people did not respond much, but that is alright. As long as your discussion gets one response, it earns. It is much easier, in my opinion, to begin by responding to discussions that are interesting. Remember to put quite a bit in anything you post, using about four to five lines of text. Read the terms of service and the guidelines. Have a question about how MyLot operates? Post a discussion about it, lots of people will be glad to help. Be kind, play nice, and try to make your discussions more than a one word answer discussion and you will make lots of friends and have fun earning. My personal goal is to do twenty five quality posts daily on average. If I do that I always make payout. Having tasks, like this one, to help earn more is a real benefit.(GardenGerty)"

Hello Friends,
Many of you were stunned by my success story and wanted to know how I earned $88 in a week. I see this article writing as a business for a short term gains. But today I am going to tell you an advantage of not selling your articles according to my personal experience.
I had written a 500+ words article for a client and was expecting $3 for that hard work of mine. The article was on 'cigarette smoking' and it was titled as How to Treat smoking addiction. I was waiting for the time when that $3 would go in my Paypal and I give my client the article. Suddenly a message was sent by the client on Digital Point saying that he did not want the article any more. I was more than frustrated and I tried to sell it later directly on DP. The people there were asking the article for $1.50 and that amount was like I would be selling my soul. Frustrated that I was I kept the text file of my article on my hard drive.
Now, as I had posted before, Triond is a genuine site which pays on impressions and PPC for your articles published by them. They don't take away author's rights and hence the article will be 'mine' and I will be getting royalties all my life. So I decided to publish that article on Triond.
On 30th July, I submitted my article and within a few minutes, my article got published which normally Triond takes a day to publish.
My article did not make it to hot content, but I was amazed that my article was ranked 8th on the 31st July, 2009 on HealthMad blog, a Triond sister site. This is an achievement for me, as I was ranking among the best authors' works and as I got 80 hits on the article in a single day which no other articles could get. And as I said it was still 'mine' not Triond's.

I should be grateful to the client who rejected my article. Thanks Uncle! I will earn more than $3 on that article now. How? I already earned 12 cents from that article in a single day and the article is going to be on the site givng me lifetime royalties. Meaning the money the client was going to give me will be covered in a month, at least $3 a month single handedly from this article will be a great success. But still I won't stop writing for my clients as with a slow passive money, I need regular active quick bucks.
So think twice before you sell your articles written with total dedication and hard work to make quick money from home. Thanks and give me your views on it.

This is the first article of the Junkamania Guest Post Series. In this article, Oindrila Ghoshal, age 22, female ptc blogger, India has shared with the Junkamania readers, her experiences with some Paid To sites. Please leave a feedback for this article.

Oindrila has a blog PTC Bonanza

My experience with money making sites began 5 months ago when I was introduced to the world of online earnings by a friend's boyfriend! I had signed up on sites like nomincashout,neobux,bux-matrix,myprobux,buxify,palmbux and ozonebux at that time.Though neobux,palmbux,bux-matrix and buxify paid me after over two months of endless clicking,the other three scammed me of my money.Meanwhile I had joined other scams too like bux2earn,blast-bux and bux-pick,as we cannot be sure when a new ptc comes up whether it will be a scam or not.But my bad luck accompanied me here too and I lost money from my hard-earned clicks on these scams too.I was so to say,very interested in learning more about online earnings and would read blogs or do a google search to find out more money-making opportunities.
I found such sites as youmint and mGinger which pay to send advertiser messages to your phone.They are pretty worthless sites except for the fact that they allow you to send free sms messages to friends from your PC to their cellphones.
Then one day,as I was browsing mGinger I came across this banner promoting a site called Mylot.I thought of giving it a try and signed up.Then as I looked around the site and read the rules,I found that it was a paid to post site that pays you per post that you make,and also for completing simple tasks.
I would not be exaggerating if I said that this site changed my life forever.This community is so full of life that I simply cannot stay without logging in everyday.I post my own topics,respond to what others have to say,complete tasks and I am earning big for it!The money is definitely an icing on the cake.Since payout is only $10,it is very easy to reach.Being out here is a whole lot of fun plus I get a bunch of information about everything from this site.
It is from MyLot members that I came to know about Trekpay,another money-making site and at last I was saved from wasting my time and money on PTC sites.Trekpay pays weekly-Real cash and I reach payout every two weeks.That is a $5.50 per two weeks simply for viewing content!
I have decided to concentrate only on MyLot,Trekpay,Easyhits4u and HKBUZZ(a genuine PTC where I reach payout every week and get my money immediately after requesting payment).Easyhits4u pays 30 cents for every 1000 pages surfed and it has a 1:1 ratio,meaning for every site that you view,they send one visitor back to your site!It pays five levels deep and has a minimum payout of $3.I have also enrolled for a huge upcoming viral business opportunity which promises to change the way we earn!The site is in pre-launch now and I am looking forward to earning from it.One cannot sign up without a sponsor on this site so check this to sign up.
Hope all of you earn as much as I do.Good luck!

July 2009 has been the most exciting and the best month of my life. I never took this 'writing' thing seriously(because I have other career options too!), so always overlooked the potential of this industry and how to make money from home via this industry.
Digital Point Forums is a webmasters forum where all the webmasters big and small, discuss, share tips, tricks, etc. I had joined Digital Point, just because I was interested in the promotion of this little blog. So, I even tried to sell the ad space here, but nobody was interested at all(one reason being that Blogspot blogs have less credibility!) and all my time given to this blog went futile as there was Zero income!
Just when I was frequenting the buy,sell and trade section of DP, I came across a thread where a member was selling content for $2 for 250 words. I then thought that I should give something similar a shot and decided to do it the next day.
The next day I came up with an idea to promote both my blog and my writing too so I started a thread


I am selling 125x125 ad spots on my blog http://junkamania.blogspot.com for $5/mth. There are 6 spots available.
The header banner is also $5/mth. One spot.
Anyone interested? contact me at boneysharaon@gmail.com or PM me.
I am in need of money.
I can write an article of 300 words for you for $5 on any topic you ask(I will research a lot and come up with one very unique article).
If you want to place a text link in one of my posts, then contact me and place a bid via email...Bid starts at $5(This will be permanent)

Please contact soon.
You can have a look at my thread http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1422743

Obviously $5 did not work, and I had to consider something else.
So, I decided to write a better thread and try to give better than anyone else.
So, here was my new thread http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1424745
This thread started my writing career actually. I decided that I will let someone review my work and hence kept the price as low as $0.30 for 250 words for the review copy. Nevertheless to say, it gained a huge response and I sold my two review articles for $0.30 to two members, out of whom just one reviewed. It did not matter as within that day, I got 5 bulk orders and 7 single article orders. But sad to say, I am a human so I rejected most of them as I could not keep them waiting.
The first day I could only make 10 dollars.
The second day I made 5 dollars.
Then I made a new thread with my revised rates and offered a 250 words article for $1.80 and I received two articles to write and that was that. No more sales on that.
The next day I decided to create another thread, this time offering a 300 words article for $1.50 and there was a boom in sales. Here I earned my 51 dollars writing and spinning the articles. I spun an article for a client almost 20 times! I then used my signature to promote my thread and there are new orders everyday, which I could hardly manage, and so I decided to take less orders. Check the thread http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1433911.
This all happened for the last 8 days and my Paypal got $88 in just 8 days. I was happy but few questions came to my mind;
  1. Is the income passive?
  2. What happened to my sold articles?
  3. What will be in store for the long term?
  4. Will I be continuing this?
The answer to the first question is definitely a big NO!! The work to be done was so large scale, that I had to wake up till 3 am in the morning to complete the orders. All the $88 were the sweat of my brow and my hard work.
The answer to the second question is that after I handed over the articles to my clients, they were no longer mine. They were theirs. All my ideas and my content was not 'mine'. It was 'theirs'.
The answer to the third question is, As for now, I cannot see a bright future in this career as I can see the money coming, but only if I work continually. The industry offers lucrative money. So, in the short term you can make a lot of money, but no long term passive money is involved.

Will I be continuing this? Yes! I will be continuing this for the next few years till I make a good amount which I can invest in an online business or anything like that which can earn me some passive income at least $0.5 a day. This might look foolish, but when I take to write those articles, I have to research on the topic(15-20 minutes), write down the article(15-20) minutes and I get just $1.5 for writing 250 words and I have no rights over them. While, investing money on my blog and cashing on Adsense for at least $0.5 a day, will become $15 a month and $180 an year which is not a very big amount, but is passive money. In the long term we got to consider passive options(I am 20 and I want to retire by 40!)

Hope this helps to all who are still struggling to earn online. If you feel that you can write then go for it. Don't hesitate! The most wanted thing today without which no online business can stand is CONTENT! So GO FOR IT! I have seen many of them charge anywhere from $50 to $200/article, which is way too much than what I offered my services for. You can be one of them who can earn that much. Then for you that will be a good profession!
