There are a lot of bloggers who think that page rank is really important to their blog. It is only important if you are trying to sell links on your blog. Also, selling links is not a long term solution to your blog because once Google detects you doing so, BOOM! Page Rank = 0 and usually advertisers won’t buy links at your blog because your PR is 0. So instead of concentrating on your page rank, I suggest that you concentrate on adsense instead.
Sponsored posts are an easy way to earn money online
Sponsored posts are simply posts that you write that has a link to an advertiser and they pay you for that link. Before you write that post, there is already an agreed amount that they will pay you. It’s one easy way to earn on your blog and the higher your page rank, the amount that advertisers will pay you also goes higher. So if you keep on trying to raise your page rank, you will have more opportunities and you will earn more with your posts. You should do this while it last because…. there is a big drawback to this and that drawback is Google itself.
I don’t know if you have noticed but this blog’s page rank is 0. It used to be 3 but since I engaged in sponsored posts, it became 0. That’s right, if Google detects that you are selling your links, your page rank will instantly become 0. The direct effect of this drop is your opportunities to earn via sponsored posts. Advertisers won’t buy links from a PR 0 blog. So what are you going to do now? You have just lost your page rank and your opportunities? Where are you going to look for blog income now?
Adsense to the rescue
Adsense are just simple ads you place on your blog that gives you cash when somebody clicks on them (don’t you dare click your own ads or your Adsense account goes BOOM!). All you have to do is to keep on blogging and hope that visitors click on your ads.
Of course, there are things you can do aside from hoping and that is by learning to blog on what people want and needs. This is another topic that I would like to discuss in future posts so I’ll just leave you with this picture of how I started to increase my Adsense income monthly since the start of the year…
