My #1 FAVORITE place to monetize my blog. (I make $200+/month with an average blog)

    Hi Guys,

    I run four active blogs. Three of them are general interest blogs that I use to build links for my clients. They are good blogs, but nothing special. (~20 organic visitors/day). The fourth is my personal blog. My first blog is PR 1, and doesn't get much traffic (but it looks nice). I generally earn about $50-$100/month. My other two blogs are a bit better. Both are PR 2 and get 750+ uniques from Google/month.

    I consistently make over $200/month from each of them. It takes me basically no time to earn this money. (I post 3-4 good articles per month on the blogs to keep traffic up)

    How do I do it?
    PostJoint.com

    PostJoint is used by advertisers to find places that accept guest posts. A lower quality blog will earn $10-$20/post, but a good blog can easily earn $100+/post.

    If you read about the site, they got penalized a while back when Google was slapping all the guest blog network. None of my clients or blogs have gotten any penalties from using the site, the site just stopped showing up in Google. But I'm 100% certain that none of the blogs got any penalties.

    Protip: When I don't have any offers or I just want to make more money, I message their blogger support email (bloggers@postjoint.com) and they almost always find a paid post for me.

    Has anyone else used these guys / what are your thoughts?

    I use it for both clients and my own blogs and havn't had any issue. My rankings have slowly but steadily increased, even after PostJoint got slapped. It's possible that some people did though...

    It's definitely still an active network. The earnings for my blogs has gone up 2x since the penalty. Possibly because Google scared away the bloggers so there is less competition for me

    Anyway... figured I would pass along the tip. I'm a supporter nonetheless.

    They did receive a penalty recently, it does seem they're still legit though.
    I've been a little more careful with these types of sites recently, especially if any kind of lists get sent around or if URLs are seen instantly.
    Also, if you're going to be monetizing with guest posts / sponsored posts there are a couple of platforms out there which still work: teliad, sponsoredreviews, payu2blog

    I really wish there was a time limit on old posts, so people don't bring back posts from 2012... Like I'm doing right now ;D

    I don't think that postjoint is helping to get paid content for your website. It gives you some various opportunity add them for your blog. But advertiser don't accept it for publish. It happens many times.
