Make your blog profitable

Written by Alcides Fonseca at 2007/07/17

Since Age of Wizards Kingdoms, I’ve been using Google Adsense for displaying publicity and earning some bucks. Well, for now I have google ads in that game for over an year and in the last month, I’ve added them to my other websites. ATM, I have 26 dollars, that suck for the page hits and clicks I had for now. And I dislike the fact that they only pay us when you achieve $100. I have to get another system!



As a blog, most of my readers use RSS and not the website itself, so I had to get some RSS ads. Google’s Feedburner has this advertising program, but it is invite-only, so my little web log had no chance. Text Link Ads sounded nice, and they pay through PayPal! (great to buy domains!). I’ve submitted my website for approval almost one month ago, but I did had no answer. I decided today to contact them in order to find out what was happening. 10 minutes later, I had the email confirming it and another from the technical support explaining the rest of the process: I had to install the code, and one week later I will have ads selected by them.



When getting the code, I could choose from PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, Ruby on Rails, JSP and PERL code, or even pluggins for various blogging systems (WordPress, Blogger, Drupal, MovableType, etc). Well, my blog is handwritten in Python. Bad luck! Fortunately I’m a nice coder and did this helper that you can use when working with Python.



Now I have to wait one week for it, but from people who use it, it’s very nice. In about one month I will post about my earnings. If you are
