    Hey everyone,

    So this is my first time going whitehat. As some of you know that I had earned some money doing blackhat methods. I don't want to do it anymore. I would rather have a legit way of making money and feeling more proud.

    So this is my first time ever taking a hit on blogger. I decided to do this versus my own blog because I know google loves blogger. I only have two posts on it and will be working on writing up 2 or 3 more tonight.

    I will put on adsense but what other ways can I make legit sales? I was thinking about putting it on youtube and I got a facebook voucher from my host. Are these the only legit ways to monetize? I only have until like October 20th!

    Any feedback on how my blog looks and any feedback on my posts would be great. Thank you all and have a great day!

    Thank you for replying! I have been waiting for some help. Not sure what to do.

    Really?

    You do not think that the offer from Annies Halloween costumes is good? Do you think adsense wouldbe good?

    this is kinda sorta one of my niche's, but you can spin it however. try making a blogger blog or whatever about a popular costume, then post a bunch of aff links to costume sites that provide them. takes a few minutes of work, but the right keywords and specific offers can and will do well. try cj for some good halloween aff programs. good luck.

    Someone was telling me it was too late to do Halloween. I am like "dude, there is a MONTH left still."

    You think a specific costume would do better versus a site where you can click through to any of them and buy anything?

    Thank you and I wish you luck too.

    PS-nice avatar. Looks like Obama is dressing up for Halloween. :) <3 Obama

    There are 4 or so CPA offer I've seen, some are email submits and some are commission based, but be sure to check those out. Check offervault for see what networks have Halloween offers.

    Well some say it is kinda late in the game for Halloween. I think I am going to try adsense. Offervault seems great though. I cannot believe I never heard of it. Thanks a lot.

    Does anyone else have any tips?

    I am trying to get my adsense account to add this blog. For some reason I am having a hard time doing it....any help please?

    i would suggest doing what orangeblossom suggested. gather a nice list of keywords and make a quick blog around them. adsense, especially for new accounts, won't give you high paying ads anyways. plus you're at the mercy of the visitors actually clicking on them.

    also, keep in mind that adsense is only going to put ads on your blog that you could put on there yourself, with a much higher commission. i think you should pick a few keywords and make some posts. then simply riddle your blog with email submits, targeted cpa offers, etc...

    you can always do a split test. try both and see what makes you more money. btw - i hate obama. my halloween costume is going to be me dressed as obama in a clown costume since he is in fact a joke. make some real cash, alot of money on the internet and you'll feel the same way....

    Wow. Thank you for your advise.

    We are not supposed to talk about politics here but I adore Obama. :) Maybe I will change my mind when I am actually making money and not just pennies. I am sorry you feel so badly about him. But if you can, email me a pic of your costume. :)

    I already have a blog. I am trying to find where (in blogger) I can change the meta tags to add keywords.

    layout, edit HTML

    you should have gone with your own domain though. Google doesn't really love blogspot that much, it's just so popular and has the biggest amount of blogs, that's why you see blogspots in serps.

    Hey guys!

    I got the keywords in and checked it with seocentro. It is all green and ready to go.I figured out how to put adsense up. Only thing is that for some reason the ads are computer/web design ads. Anyone know why that is?

    Thank you all so so much!

    Hey Bud

    You might want to check out 3w*alarmingproducts*com. They have tons of masks and props for Halloween. They also have a pretty good affiliate program.

    Hope this helps...

    Kinda cool but these is just a seasonal thing so don't give it more credit & forget your niches which never get exhausted quickly or get out of demand like this one anyway its not a bad idea though.
