      Devang keep a killer combination of adsense and affiliate weapon.. This will ensure you will make most out of it…
      More over small Note : Don’t try to use all 3 ad units, Instead use 1 or 2 ad units along with link units..That will perform better….

        Hmm.. now using 2 Ad units but no link unit. Let me give link unit a try and see what happens :)

        1 link unit is a must to make a good amount of money via adsense. I never miss out on this idea on my blog :D

    Thanks for the tips harsh. I think affiliate marketing is really a good way to earn more especially when u have a blog read by a good amount of people.

      That’s right Amal.. I will rather say, for any kind of online income you need to have an audience for your blog. Bigger the audience is better your earning will be.

      Hey Rajesh no doubt blogussion theme is great but if you use it, the only thing which you will lose is chance to brand yourself with a unique theme design.
      A unique theme design is something which everyone want and its great for branding. In case you looking for a custom WordPress theme or Thesis theme customization you can always get in touch with me . You can have a look at Shoutmeloud Portfolio for the same

    The one method that I earned most from in 2009 was paid text links via Text-Link-Ads. In 2010 I’m hoping to earn a lot more from affiliate marketing, especially since I’m not using Text-Link-Ads anymore :)

    I’m looking for alternative ways to monetize my blog. I’m also thinking about doing another PPC test.

      Jens I have a diff. opinion with Paid text links, since Google hate Paid text link, I never promote it infront of my readers and never use it. I have seen people losing page rank because of it. Though if you using it successfully without hurting your page rank, thats great :)

        Yes. That’s why I’m not using paid text links anymore. I was earning apx $400 from it, but then my PR dropped from 4 to 0 :)

        Thanks for that heads up, Jens. I was considering trying it, but that’s a pretty huge drop in PR!

        I’m not sure if it’s all because of paid text links, but that’s the only explanation I can think of.

    I would add that creating a product might be something to consider if you don’t have the readership to support adsense and affiliate marketing, yet. Ebooks seem to be a popular route and can help to set you apart from some of the other blogs out there.

    Affiliate marketing is the best way to earn money easily with your blog but it needs more audience for your blog once you have it you can make a good amount of money. Paid reviews are also very useful.

    Harsh you are simply marvelous. However, I’ve tried a little at affiliate marketing but was unsuccessful. Had better luck with other things like and blog-advertising though.

    I was wondering about hosting affiliates and I have been an avid reader of your blog for a long time now. I have seen you advertise Hostgator a lot in your blog before and now I have seen that you have changed it to Blue Host. I was just wandering why the change.

    Did Hostgator screwed you over like what some affiliates say in their blogs and have experience? Pls. inform us your avid readers so that we may be warned and informed. Thank you.

    Even i added my blog in two months back, it is not still approved, in pending state.

    Usually how long it will take to get the approval? Or Is it linked with getting the sponsor?
