Make Money Blogging with Pay Per Post

Pay Per Post is one of the many ways in which bloggers can earn money with their blogs. One attractive feature that Pay Per Post has is that it offers several ways for a blogger to earn.

Option I

Bloggers have the option to accept an offer from a Pay Per Post advertiser to submit a blog entry based upon the advertiser’s criteria. Once approved, the blogger receives payment in amount agreed upon.

Option II

If option number one doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, Pay Per Post offers the opportunity for you, as a blogger, to negotiate directly with an advertiser. This option is called Pay Per Post Direct.

In order to take advantage of this opportunity, you would have to insert code on your blog. Once installed, the code will display a little widget, which lets advertisers know that you are open for paid blogging. Advertisers will then contact you directly and begin the blog/price negotiation process.

Use care when selecting this option. If your blog’s readers come to your blog because of its authenticity, you may run the risk of letting your readers down if they know that your objectivity is tainted because you are being paid to follow an advertisers criterion. If your readers become disillusioned your blog’s traffic might suffer as a result.

If, however, your readers understand that you offer information about products and services and are not bothered by your being paid for your blog posts, then by all means take advantage of this option.

Option III

If options one and two aren’t your bailiwick, Pay Per Post offers yet a third option. You can become a Pay Per Post affiliate. This seems to be the least painful of all options. All you need is you put a bit of code that will result in an image on your website or your blog letting your readers know that the Pay Per Post opportunity exists and that they could sign up and begin earning money to blog.

Some people choose all three options or pick and choose one or two of them. Folks are earning money with Pay Per Post.

Page Rank Matters

Pay Per Post Advertisers prefer blogs with a page rank of at least 3. If your blog has a low page rank you won’t be able to participate in as many offers as a blog with a higher ranking.

Requirements for Blog Approval

In order to be able to make money using Option I, your blog must be currently active. Pay Per Post checks to see if your blog has at least 10 entries within the past 30 days. If not, then you’ll have to utilize Option II. Once your blog achieves the status of 10 blog entries within a 30-day period of time, you can then resubmit it for approval in order to use Option I.

    Hi Felicia,
    Good day. I am also interested to become a bloggers but i don’t know where to start. I need extra income for my family,hope you could help me. Please share with me an idea what are the interesting things to be discussed in a blog…..i understand that blog is like your thoughts, your ideas about things…i think i can do it..And besides i just felt bored with my work…….i work in a travel agency here in my country Philippines, and this month is lean season, and their nothing i could do, i need to exercise my brain and i want to share my ideas with other people,hope you can help me. Thank you so much.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Take a look around at some of my posts as they might contain information that could help you decide whether or not to blog.

    As far as what to blog about, I strongly suggest that you blog about something that you’re interested in. If you like gardening, blog about that. If you enjoy the travel industry, blog about traveling. Take a little time and do a self evaluation to see what you truly would enjoy writing about.

    The reason I strongly suggest that you blog about what you like is because it will be a lot easier to come up with consistent content to put on the blog. The more blog posts you have the better. If you blog about something just for the money, you’ll soon lose interest and you’ll have a difficult time coming up with new and unique content for your blog. It will become a chore.

    After you’ve come up with a topic that you enjoy, make sure you spend a little time learning about search engine optimization. It doesn’t happen over night, but if you learn a little more each day, over time it will pay off.

    Check out my recent post, what are your blogging goals, to see what some of the other successful bloggers do.

    Keep in mind; building a successful blog takes time, so you might as well enjoy the journey.

      How do I create a blog? Is there a charge?

      • Felicia March 23, 2010, 4:58 pm

        Herletta, you can us free blogging services such as Blogger.com or WordPress.com. There are a few others but these are the ones I’m familiar with.

        If you intend to put ads on your blog, then go with Blogger.com.

    Webhosting uptime is very important for me. So if you have to get a good hosting, get the best uptime server, I think dreamhost can provide maximum uptime, 99.99%. But of course you have to pay more. 😛

    this is great informnation on how to make money blogging. I think it takes the right kind of person to do well at this type of thing.

    Personally I prefer to find money making ideas that allow me to make residual income without having to sell my time for money.

    Lee Nobles last blog post..How The Residual Income Model Helps Us With Australian Small Business Ideas

  • Felicia October 2, 2008, 10:44 pm

    I agree with you. Residual is the way to go but sometimes you’ve got to trade an hour or so for a couple of bucks.

Thankx for this great content.

  • Chava LeBarton October 18, 2008, 1:37 pm

    Great blog. I especially like the info on pay per click, but it’s a bit over my head. I do have a website for my home business and would also like to put up a blog. Can you refer me to earlier posts by you or an edcational site for beginners?

  • Felicia October 18, 2008, 5:42 pm

    Hi Chava,

    Thanks for stopping by. As far as beginner info on blogging, I pretty much learned hands on by creating a blog on blogger.com. It’s free and easy to do.

    Here’s a post from the Problogger blog with blogging tips for beginners. Darren Rowse provides lots of valuable tips and advice.

    Hope it helps.

    Hi Felicia,
    I signed up yesterday and actually gave it a test run with my first blog. Now do I wait for the blog to be accepted? Do I accept other assignments in the meantime? I know it takes a while but how long should I wait? Right now it says that ITK not installed and that means………? Please advise.


    • Felicia May 7, 2009, 10:17 am

      There’s not much you can do until your blog is approved. In the meanwhile, spend a little time on their site going through their tutorials.

      I’ve got to be honest with you, I haven’t done much with Pay Per Post lately, so I don’t want to give you incorrect info.

      5/10/09 Update: Apparently Pay Per Post has made a lot of changes. There is no longer a blog approval process. Check out the new FAQ.

  • mskirk May 7, 2009, 1:45 pm

    What are some other good sites that I could get paid to blog?

      Vikram, things have changed with Pay Per Post since I wrote this blog entry. I think they made quite a few improvements, but I haven’t worked with them in quite some time.

      I’d be interested to hear about your experience with the “new and improved” Pay Per Post.

  • Go Green Tips November 4, 2009, 5:40 am

    Thanks for this detailed post. I never knew about Paid Posting/blogging. Posts like this makes me want to give them a try.

    thanks for this great post. i found that this was posted 2008 but somehow, the info are still useful up to now.
    I am into payperpost but haven’t received any opp yet.
    Could you help further? 🙂

    • Felicia April 6, 2010, 6:38 am

      Caterine, there’s nothing I can do. It’s just a matter of waiting until the right opportunity comes along.

  • Bubble Umbrella April 7, 2010, 3:15 pm

    I’ve signed up to Pay Per Post just a few minutes ago. Using blogger.com. We’ll see what will happen..

    Just one question – do advertisers give you blog post or you need to write it your self? Anyone knows?

    .-= Bubble Umbrella´s last blog ..Bubble Umbrella =-.

    • Felicia April 7, 2010, 4:13 pm

      Bubble Umbrella (love the name), it’s been a while since I used Pay Per Post, but if my memory serves correctly, they give you keywords/links to use and you must write a post accordingly.

  • Bubble Umbrella May 5, 2010, 8:31 am

    Felicia, just letting you know that I have received an offer! Actually not an actual offer, but some of the advertisers are interested in posting on my blog. Will let you know how it will develop. So, I must say, that it works 🙂 and it’s not a scam.

  • Crystal May 5, 2010, 5:15 pm

    Thought I’d chime in beings I’ve been doing the Pay Per Post thing on my blog since last fall. It took a couple of months before any actual offers came but they’ve trickled in steadily since mid-January. I’ve yet to reach payout ($50) so it’s not a big money maker but it’s ok for the time required so far. I’ve also turned down several offers that didn’t fit my audience or that prohibited in-post disclosure.

    And yes, you usually have to compose the post and include the required links. Some are for links only and one actually provided the content but those were unusual in my experience. I prefer to write the content anyway – it’s my blog after all – and do so even when only a link is required.

  • Nadri April 11, 2011, 10:53 am

    i already joined PPP since last year..several advertisers did offered me assignment though PR 2 blog..enjoys few times payments from them also…

  • Sagar June 23, 2011, 4:38 am

    I have been with PPP for some time. In last few months, I was not so active, and hence could not really take up any assignments. However, when I want to resume now, I see that PPP is no longer offering me good opportunities as it earlier did. The opp’s are pathetic and the payout is worse. To put it in one sentence, PPP is not helping me at all. Do you know any other site who can help me make some money?

    • Felicia June 23, 2011, 8:03 am

      Please look under the “Opportunities” menu item above.
