Skyrocket Your Blog Income Using these 4 Content Syndication Networks

Skyrocket Your Blog Income Using these 4 Content Syndication Networks

One of the biggest misconceptions we’ve found among bloggers, particularly newbie bloggers, is that the only way to earn money from a blog is advertisement, or more precisely Google AdSense. Due to this, we have many ways to earn from a blog that has mediocre traffic, popularity and quality. For instance, if you’re banking on Google AdSense, check out these alternatives here and try your luck! Among those alternatives, content syndication networks are a great earning method as well. This article gives you a background about content syndication and recommends the top content syndication networks out there.

Less than 5% of men cited reading blogs as their favourite online activity

So when you wrote that piece about how you loved Phil Neville’s commentating style during the FIFA World Cup 2014, the men you were hoping would lap it up, quite probably didn’t. That is, of course, unless you carried out some research of your own and found that’s exactly what your male audience was crying out for. For those that didn’t want to read a blog post, not only might you have turned them off (or bypassed them completely) by choosing that channel, your praise for Phil Neville’s commentary style may well have done the same. But at least a bad reaction is better than no reaction at all. A recent study [infographic] revealed that unlike the 7% of women who said reading blogs was their favourite online activity, more than 95% of men chose social media, games, videos or other types of content as theirs.
