When you get to look closely at the professional blogger, you will notice that professional blogs make money by either selling Ads or promoting some Advertising to it readers which has made them to prosper in the blogging.
Blogger and Wordpress are probably the best blogging services that I am quite familiar with but blogging platforms are the same only if you will know how to reach the right audience at the right time, the audience that is Right will include the blog loyal readers and the loyal customers who will support your blog, loyal readers in a blog is a must have and keeping them tagged to your blog will not only benefit your blog in making profits and revenue but it will build a noticable foundation and background after the blog which will help your site rank very well on Google and other search engines because the user activity of a site has been considered as a very strong ranking signal.
The Blog readers are the most important characters in a blog because they play a huge role in contributing to a blog as they love your blog as you love it, I have seen some Bloggers trying to use various types of widgets a plugins to spam their readers which I would say it is crazy, Professional Bloggers must follow a certain procedure to build successful blogs and they should have respect for the blog readers. In my Blogging career the first type of Advertise network was Qadabra and the After it was Bidvertiser, these Advertising services contained a lot of Spam Ads and scams which were in the form of pop under Ads and Also the irritating Pop up Ads. Don't get me wrong Bidvertiser is one of the five highest PPC Advertising networks in the World but they lack proper Ad filtering.
The Comments of a Blog have to be controlled at a serious note because when it comes to Blogging spam is one of the biggest problems faced online, even I had a problem dealing with Spam on Blogger until I used some CSS and JQuery codes on my which deactivated all the anauthorised comment links included on the comment box. Your Blog should look representable to the readers whether the visitor is visiting for the first time or not, the reader must find it safe to comment on your blog.
Sell Something Your Readers
When Openning a Blog or a website you are getting yourself into the world of online profits, because have blog is similar to having an online magazine whereby thousands of readers get to read articles daily and also buy any product that is being offered by the magazine. When looking at the magazines like Forbes and YOU, you will get to notice that they make most of their profits from sales and Advertising just as happens on a blog. Selling a product can involve any thing that was made by the blog author or any member of the blog, it can be anything from Advertising Networks, Affiliate Products by other bloggers and the products that have been manufactured by the Blog.
On my upcomming book I will be titled 7seven Possible Income Streams for Bloggers I do mention an ebook as the best thing to sell on a blog because Ebooks are very powerful as the number of sales that one can make is very unpredictable, an Ebook is a must have if you are interested in making online passive income, any blogger can write a niche ebook which can be sold on Amazon, Ajaxsurf Publishers and many other online retailers. If it happens that you are running a news site then you should have Ads on Place and the onlything you are only required to do is to simply bring readers to your blog and they can click on those Ads which will eventually generate a good revenue.
As I mentioned above that there are four possible/Common ways to make online profits which can be anything from :
- Selling Your Created products
As mentioned above as a blog there should be atleast a product that you would be selling to the blog readers and customers.
- Selling Affiliate Products
Affiliate Products are an another method of generating income through your blog, affiliate products are not made by you or your blog but they are made by blogging professionals. the great thing about affiliate products is that you can sell any product or service irrespective of whether you are an author or not. So with Affiliate networks you don't need to create any product but you choose any product and sell to the readers.
- A Good paying Advertising Network
Advertising networks can make you money while you sleep, the only thing you are required to do is to find a good Advertising network like Adsense Ads, Infolinks and Media.net Ads which will really boost your online income.

Get new readers to signup for your Blog
It is very important that you please your readers both the new and the old because that is the main reason for the increase in profits of many professional blogs on the internet.
