Believe it or not you can actually be paid to post to your blog. I admit I was skeptical at first, I mean after all there has to be a catch right? After all there usually is when something sounds too good to be true.
However, when I actually did the research, and spoke to others who have been being paid to blog, I was astounded to realize you actually can make money from blogging.
However, there are a couple of requirements if you want to get paid to blog, first and foremost you must have a blog that has been in existence for at least 90 days, although there are a few exceptions where it can be 30 days old, but this is rare.
Also, your blog must be indexed in the major search engines such as Google, and Yahoo for example.
After all, if your blog cannot be found by searching for it on a search engine, then you’re not going to get many page views and who is going to pay you to post to a blog that has little to no traffic?
So, it’s important that your blog be in existence for a while and that your blog can be found on Google, and the other major search engines.
Okay, so you’ve got a blog that is 90 days old or older, and your blog can be found in the search engines, what is next?
Well, next is that you have be sure you have been posting regularly to your blog, no less than every couple of days is best, and if you can do it everyday that is even better.
Most paid to blog opportunities want to be able to look at your blog and see that you have been regularly posting.
If you have let a week or more go by between posts, and this has been the norm, then the people with the money are going to be less interested in hiring you to post to your blog.
