What do I mean when I say blogging for clicks? I am talking about writing a blog in order to get people to respond to advertisements you have in your blog or a product you are trying to sell.
Blogging as content for revenue generating sites is nothing new but you do need a plan. Below are a couple of suggestions I have.
- Pick a subject you are interested in. It is always easier (and less like work) if you are writing about something you are interested in.
- Stay consistent with your blog. If you are writing about dogs, keep writing about dogs. Every once in a while you might write about something different but your overall theme should be the same.
- If you are promoting a website make sure it relates to your blog.
- If you are advertising a specific product it should relate to your blog. You can do general advertising also with rotating advertisements just remember you might not get as many clicks.
