17 Sites that Pay You to Blog

| May 5, 2010 More



Blogging is not only about money but all of us who owns a blog would also want to earn something back from it. After all we do so much hard work in maintaining and promoting our blogs. Most of us, use Adsense or other Advertising networks to get back some revenue from our blog. Some of us also use affiliate marketing as a mean of earning some money.  We even try to earn money by selling ad slots on our blogs. But all of these methods do not work until you have a high Pagerank and a good enough traffic. Even though one good method which may work, even for sites which do not have a good Pagerank or a high traffic is paid reviews or paid blog posts. Yes, you can earn a good amount of money by reviewing  sites, blogs and  products for clients in your own blog. This method is called paid review and paid blog posts.

There are many ways of getting clients for paid reviews. One method being contacting the clients directly. But this method may not be as much lucrative. The other good method you could try out is by joining sites which would help you get paid review offers directly from advertisers.

The advantages of joining such sites is that you can get more review offers from a large number of clients who belong to the same niche that you may be blogging about.

    But you got to be very very careful if you are dealing any of them. Google HATES them and it won’t take time before you might lose your PR and search traffic over night!

        On the other hand, some how you an pass through Google’s eye if you agree to make the links in the particular post to no-follow….Many advertisers does this and many bloggers adhere to this and thus find no risks :)

    I never knew there exists something of this sort for paid reviews n all… Looks to be a comprehensive list! i am sure it will be useful for many!

    yea….google hate them all…..and that’s why i didn’t had any PR for almost 2 years………but having a PR also is not helping with getting paid tasks……

    i have joined 12 of these 17….and will join the other too today…….. :)

      So did you loose your PR because of Paid reviews??? If so then why are you joining them back again…I am confused?

      • Hitesh Rawat says:

        well i started blogging march 2007 and got a PR only once that too only for less than month…….

        so only for a month in last 3 years i had a PR of 2 …..else it was 0 ……

        then now a couple of weeks back….i got a PR of 3 ……

        it may cause i used to write a lot of paid posts……earlier….abt 30-40 every month………but since last year……it’s less than 5 a month…..

        so it may have affected may PR……that’s my guess…i;m not a SEO expert

        and why i want to join all of them…….cause blogging money is a major reason i’m blogging………..though i love my readers too……but some money on the side never hurts…….and i’m not getting any especial previllage for having a PR 3……compared to wat i had when it was 0…..

        so PR, is good…….but for some reason ….it isn;t working for me that good……….

          Yes, I agree with you. For many bloggers , money is an important factor for their blog. So I do not find any reason why one who is in need of money should not join these programs even if it may hurt PR because in the short run PR does not help at all for many bloggers. PR works only if you are about to sell your site or if you are selling advertising. That too until one does not get to a good enough PR like pR4-5 it does not work that much. Great to know that you found the post helpful. Do comment back here if you make good enough money :)

  5. I don’t know how useful they will be for Indians. I am part of Sponsored Reviews but do not find anything exciting to review and besides it is more related to the US or the UK or other countries than India.

    Also, since my blog is kinda niche, I cannot really write (even though I can but it won’t be related to by blog!) about many many topics. So there goes my notional money lol.

    Wondering if anyone here has had some experience with these sites?

    I’ve almost completely left this stuff alone in the past year. I used to love doing this.

    But Bloggerwave owed me about $30, and never paid up. That was from over a year ago. It’s not showing pending anymore, either. They never responded to my complaints or questions, and although they DID pay me $20, there’s still the issue of the money that they DIDN’T pay.

    Go figure. I can’t recommend them at all.

  12. Hi, I’ve been thinking of setting up increasingly spot. However, not quality with techie stuff. Is it not easy to set up a web page? Would I might need to expend time learning programming and coding?

  14. Huey says:

    I never knew there were so many, I may check them out some time soon. But while I like the sound being paid to blog I don’t like the sound of paid reviews. Hopefully honesty still comes into play here as I’d rather maintain my readers trust than sell out to a shady advertiser. But I’ll still take a look I’m sure my assumption is likely to be wrong.

    Thanks for this, voted for on Blog Engage

    Bro the list is awesome except Payperpost. They are the worst in their website and options. 2 years back my friends have earned 500$ per month through that site. now they are poor at the site interface, you cannot reset password, complete claiming at ease and so on..

    So drop that from the list pls.

  24. Hi Shiva,
    Like others, I am also surprised at how many sites would pay to advert on a blog. Honestly, of the said sites, I am only familiar with 3(PPP, sponsoredreviews, and review me). Also, it really is good to earn money from blogging, but one should not forget to have fun and put a personal touch on blogs just like what you’re doing(replying to comments). I really like it! Many thanks for sharing!

    Don’t touch Blog Advertising Store – they don’t pay!! They owe me $106 and have done since May and no sign of payment. And they don’t reply to e-mails either. They are on their last chance – if they don’t pay this month then I am removing the links from each of my posts.
