    Hello BHW!

    I am fairly new to SEO, IM and website/blog building.

    I recently created 3-4 wordpress sites/blogs using free domain and hosting [dot gq domain and infinityfree.net hosting].

    My question : Can I put up ads on these blogs using adsense?

    Also, can I use these blogs to generate revenue from other methods like amazon affiliate program and cpa programs?

    Yes you can. but its hard to get approval from adsense but you can use it with CPA and affiliate marketing. only matters real traffic

    Be careful about the free domains like .tk etc.
    There are numerous cases of these domain being seized once you start getting decent traffic.

    I hear you.

    Here's what I am going to do. Since I am a toddler in IM, I am going to go ahead and give it a try. If it fails, no issues. If it works, now I got money to buy a nice domain name and hosting.

    Thanks for all the helpful comments :)

    PS: Could someone kindly link some threads where I can find these CPA networks for a new blog?

    Freenom is well known for this, they will park your domain as soon as it gets traffic.There are registrars that give you domain for 1$. Yes, the renewal cost is high after 1 year, maybe you won't get free whois guard and other goodies for that price but there are multiple advantages.
    Free tld's are heavily used by spammers so Google isn't playing nice with those.
    Also, except dot.tk, you won't have email forwarding.

    Thanks for the quick responses guys. I feel much confident having you guys back me up :)
    Freenom certainly has a bad reputation is what I can see. But I'm going to go ahead anyway, because I know my first few businesses are going to fail anyways.
    I will get practice at spitting out articles and setting up websites, plugins, etc.

    Warm up round :p

    Can.

    It depends on luck if you play adsense.

    But you jia affiliate business, it certainly can be done.
    Provided you a lot of traffic and visitors trust your web site

    Free domains and hosting - don't use stuff like that.

    Instead of trying to build 4 sites, I would build one really good site over a few months. The income from one site that's designed and built well can fund your SEO efforts and make things easier.

    You're certainly going in the right direction. I'm not talking about the scenery though.
