A lot of bloggers admit they blog in their pajamas, however, today’s post is not about the state of dress we’re in when we write.
Devoid of advertisements.
Although many bloggers admit to wanting to make money blogging (me, included), for some reason we don’t discuss it and certainly don’t want our sites labeled as “spammy”.
Truth be told, most fellow bloggers expect to see ads on our sites.
Like you, they also hope to make money and understand why the ads are there.
Take a look at these popular websites. They all have ads, too.
Granted, the popular sites are where advertisers want their ads displayed and willingly pay these large corporations big bucks for their website “real estate”, but the ads are there, providing a passive income for these businesses.
If you look at these websites, you’ll notice the ads blend in with the copy and/or photographs.
As bloggers we can learn from that.
That said, the one thing these large websites have which most bloggers don’t, are high traffic numbers.
Without traffic, all the ads in the world will not make us rich.
So does that mean we should stay naked for now?
Or include some ads and hope for the best?
Are you a naked blogger (no ads on your blog), or does you blog have some bling?
If you land on a blog which has advertisements, are they a distraction or have you become blind to them?
If you do show ads, are they profitable?
