5 Shocking Reasons Why Bloggers Don’t Like Their Blogs Making Money

February 11, 2021 Off By Crystal Watkins

Web logs at their core are simply online message forums with the most recent message postings at the top of the page. Blogging has erupted in popularity in the last 10 years, and blogs focus literally on anything (and everything) someone (or anyone) has an opinion on. Blogs often serve as types of ‘sounding boards’ for opinions and updated information, but they can also be online diaries and simple mediums for message posting. Blogs can be created quickly and easily and many sites such as Blogger.com allow users to create web logs for free.

Well to be honest there are a few rotten apples in the bushel, but aren’t there always? Some people of course are not happy with the way technology is changing lives and that’s ok, that’s their opinion. Usually those who aren’t happy with it don’t blog.

Some people have found out that blogs can also be used to sell products. In fact, an entire industry has evolved around commercial blogging and ways to market them. Some of these commercial blogs appear in the same journal style as the most popular share pins, while others do not look any different from a regular commercial website.

Let me share to you some of my ideas in making blogs useful in list building business. This might help know how to create powerful blogs that would translate to expand your list.

If you’re a product-based business, always make sure they actually feature products on the blog before you pitch something. If they do, check their About section, their Contact section, and/or look for a Review Policy section. Most blogs that accept product reviews or features list the information on how to pitch to them somewhere on the site.

Products that have affiliate programs get far more publicity. That is certainly correct of my internet marketing success blog, and it really is most likely true of other blogs. So how do blogs make money? For example, I am a fan of let’s say magnetic sponsoring, but I’ve never ever posted a real write-up about it. I’ve also seen that when blogs write about attraction marketing, they are likely to link to marketers who offer them an affiliate payment.

As stated above, blogs by nature are just text content directories. Posts are often about only one detail of a topic. A lot of text, less HTML and no fancy gimmicks. And for the most part the links from and to such posts are natural, sincere and very relevant. Combine that with the frequently changing content and there you may have the reason that search engines love blogs and index them fast.
