    Hey BHW,

    I am stoked right now. I have had my blog up for 4 years and really never did much with it. I posted a few articles a year for a couple of years and did not even get close to page 100 for the most popular keyword.

    I got curious about fiverr when I read a few posts here on BHW and decided to post a few gigs. One of my gigs is I will mention your Product or Website on my 4 year old trucking blog for $5. I have a few orders, completed them and made my blog active again. I checked my backlinks before doing these gigs and only had about 650 BL's. After I completed the gigs, I checked the BL's everyday for 7 days and watched it go from 650 to over 1100 BL's. 7 FREAKING DAYS! And these are not blasted backlinks. They are all organic from me and other sources that I cannot explain.

    I am currently redoing the template to make it look more presentable and sponsor friendly so I will have a better chance of getting orders on payperpost.com and other related sites.

    What advise would you give me to monetize this sucessfully? I will be reading the forum in the meantime to learn monetizing strategies from all of you "gurus" :cowboy:

    what exactly is your blog about? You can start with adsense or other ad networks... Since your domains is old enough, adsense will most likely show respect towards it and will give you good ads right from the beginning. What are traffic statistics (Before and After)?

    Are you thinking to sell it? I might very well buy it too if you offer a good price :).

    The blog is a Blogger blog believe it or not, and it's about the trucking industry and there are also many other subjects that I have posted about to make the blog more versatile which the google spidys seem to love.

    I already have adsense on the site and have had since 2008. The blog went from 196 page views in Dec 2010 to 1,106 in January 2011. I do not have the stats for this month yet since the month just began.

    I just signed up to payperpost.com and am looking for more sites like this for monetizing. I am currently not interested in selling it and I am not sure how big a demand there is for high ranked blogger blogs. I may consider selling if I get a mid to high PR1 with the site.

    Does PayPerPost.com accept blogger blogs? As far as i know you will get more opps in PPP if you have a domain hosted somewhere else.

    My blog was excepted immediately. It has already been confirmed. So I am assuming that the blog will remain available for advertisers. And it is possible that a hosted domain is more desirable, but it can't hurt to try with a PR2 blogger blog.
