Requirements & Tips on Getting Your Blog Approved
If you’re still interested in making money online through paid posts, here are a few of the general requirements of Paid Review sites that you need to take note of before you sign up. Make sure you have passed the requirements to ensure that your blog won’t be rejected.
Included in this list are some of my tips to help you get your blog approved as soon as possible.
- Most Paid Review sites require that the blog you submit to them has been online for at least 3 months. There should also be a decent amount of blog posts published over those 3 months. Otherwise, you won’t be approved.
Please refer to my reviews and guides for EACH Paid Review sites I’ll be featuring here to learn more on how they work and their requirements. That’ll be part IV.
- Your blog posts should be of high quality. If all you’ve been doing is writing about posts published by other bloggers or on other websites, you won’t be approved. They need bloggers who write unique or their own contents and not just copies from other people.
Same thing applies if you’ve been publishing paid posts from other Paid Review sites. If most of your contents are paid, you won’t get approved. Trust me, they know when your posts are paid reviews.
- Your blog MUST be indexed by Google or other search engines.
Otherwise, you won’t be approved. Of course, if your blog is not yet indexed, then, the paid posts that you’ll finish won’t be of any value to the advertiser. So, make sure you submit your blog to popular search engines like Google and Yahoo.To submit your blog, click on the links below:
- More traffic or visitors, more chances of getting your blog approved.
Most Paid Review sites look at your Google PR (PageRank), Alexa ranking or Technorati statisttics. So, try to spend some time building traffic to your blog. You have 3 months, from the time you started your blog up to the time you can start joining Paid Review sites, to do that.Read my guide on how to increase traffic to your blog. I’ll be giving more tips in increasing traffic to your blog after Part IV of this guide so stay tuned!
- Avoid too much visual clutter on your blog.
Minimize the widgets, images and banners on your blog. This way, your blog loads faster and your blog would look more attractive.
- Minimize the ads on your blog.
Most advertisers don’t like in-post ads from other ad networks. It’s because their competitors’ links would show up on your post that they paid for. It’ll be unfair to them, so make sure you read the advertiser’s requirements carefully.
- Make sure you have a visible Archives list on your blog.
Some bloggers prefer a list of categories, topics or labels on their sidebar instead of the Archives or list of actual posts they have published because it’s better to look at. However, advertisers prefer to see an Archives list on the sidebar because they want visitors to see the actual titles of the blog posts you publish since some advertisers want the paid posts’ titles to be related to their website or product.Also, when you have an Archives widget or list on your sidebar, your past blog posts are more likely to be read if the titles can be seen by the readers.
