Another Paid Review Site to Make Money From!

One of my favourite Paid Review sites has to be PayPerPost. They are well established and seem to come up with the most opportunities for my qualifying blog, The Honest Way. They also have a referral program, which is another way to make money with these guys.

I’m going to blatantly put up a sign-up box right here in this post, just in case any of you are thinking about signing your blog up with them – this is the easiest way to do it!

Ok, I deleted it again – if you want to sign up with PayPerPost, please click on the banner in my sidebar (Banner removed)!

There are the usual qualifying criteria that your blog has to meet. That being it has to be over three months old, have a reasonable alexa rank and fair amount of regular traffic. They’ll accept a PR0 blog, but you’ll be restricted as to which opportunities you can apply for.

But don’t worry about that to begin with, it’s important to get your blog accepted first so that you can start with a few paid reviews just to get you into the swing of things.

The more opportunities you take the better you will get at it. Better to make your mistakes early while your blog is still relatively new and seemingly inexperienced than to be making a hash of things when your blog is high ranking and supposed to be professional!

As your blog grows in popularity, as it surely will over time you’ll get more chances to make money with PayPerPost, so don’t be shy – sign up now!

So can I advertise directly on this blog?

Advertisers are more than welcome to sponsor me to write a review on their business or marketing website on this blog as long as its theme is reasonably close to this. By that I mean a money or marketing oriented site would be fine, whereas it would look silly if I were to review a website selling women’s shoes. I think you get the idea!

If you think this could be a lucrative form of advertising, I can be contacted directly to blog about your business or website by simply leaving me a comment on this post. I’ll reply the same day.

Update: Paid review blogging is against Google’s quality guidelines and will harm your site and impact its ranking in the index. Don’t do it!

Another Great Way to Generate Traffic for FREE!

Here is a great place to attract some traffic to your site or blog: Yahoo Answers!

Yep, they are actually a very good way of spreading the word around about you, your blog and your subject of expertise. You have to have a yahoo account to get started (who hasn’t these days?) but once you’re in and up and running, there is a huge world of question askers just waiting for your answer.

There are plenty of categories to choose from, so you’ll have a fair chance of being knowledgeable in some of them. Plenty of people want to know how to make money online! There is no shortage of newbies asking easy to answer questions too. The trick is to make sure your answer gets in there as early as possible before other experts get in there and steal your thunder! Then hit ’em with everything you’ve got.

Well, no need to go crazy, just answer their question with a good, informative and useful answer and you stand a good chance of winning the best answer prize. Ok, it’s only points, but the point is you get to post a link to your blog in your answer and that wins you a valuable one-way back-link to your blog.

It also has the effect of peaking the curiosity of the readers of that particular thread and if your answer was really good, you’ll get a fair amount of those curious people clicking over to your blog to see what else you write about. How to make money for one!

You might want to know why I haven’t provided a link for you to click over to Yahoo Answers?

Come on, I said they give you one-way back-links – if I link back to Yahoo, that cancels out one of those links to here!

I think most of you can find Yahoo on the map!
