Hello, and welcome to my series on “How to Make Mummy Money” through blogging. This article was first published on my other website http://www.funprintablesforkids.com, last week.
In this post, I am testing the advice given to me by my web guru, Lisa Irby, on the subject of Google Adsense. There are a few things to keep in mind, if you are watching this video, in which she describes a record earning month of $5, 974, made through Google Adsense, through her two websites and a blog.
Firstly, this video was made in 2009, when it was easier to make money from Adsense. The average Mummy blogger won’t get to 5k quickly these days, no matter how high her traffic is.
Secondly, you won’t get anywhere quickly, unless you have superb content. If there is one thing that Lisa stresses throughout all her tutorials (and there are many!) it is that you must have quality content, in order to gain traffic. “Spend some time working on your content before you even THINK about Adsense”, she says!
A good example of this is my website www.funprintablesforkids.com, which currently contains less than 10% of the content that I think it should have (good quality colouring pages) because the illustrator (ME!) has been busy fooling around with facebook, google analytics, adsense, and affiliate advertising sites. Maybe I should take my own advice!
Thirdly, none of it comes easily. Most of the Mummy bloggers out there work hard, long hours to produce their content and attract their target audience, especially in the early years.
So, please enjoy this third party video, courtesy of Lisa Irby.
And from me, Good luck, and happy Mummy blogging. Don’t forget to check on the kids once in a while!
