Making money through blogs is actually NOT a simple case of PPC display banner ads in the sidebar of a blog, writing paid reviews, or offer ad spots independently. INSTEAD. Because if the problem is just that easy, this time there would have been very many bloggers earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month.
make money via a blog actually is the issue of building a blog that authority should be initiated well in advance before the PPC banner ads attached, before registering the program paid review or prior independent ad spots offered to prospective advertisers. In summary: build authority blogs are absolutely necessary before you make a blog monetization.
Actually what authority a blog?
Simply put, the authority of the blog is "an accepted source of expert information or advice from a blog" or a reliable source of information or advice from an expert or blogger.

Or, CopyBlogger.com is a blog that has a special niche authority in copy writing for the blog. With a powerful authority possessed by the two examples above blog, visitor traffic has increased, stronger branding, advertisers, overcrowded and dollar purse was getting thicker. In summary: a blog that has the authority to have a much greater chance of making money than mediocre blog.
So what is the strategy to build authority blogs?

Although it may not be the best strategy, especially the most perfect, perhaps what I have done can be a source of inspiration for you to start building authority for your blog.
7 Simple Ways to Build Your Blog Authority
1. Focus on Interests, Hobbies and Your Expertise
A blog that has a definite authority focused on a particular topic. The more in-depth mastery of a topic, the higher the level of authority the blog. Back to the example above blog, and CopyBlogger ProBlogger.net managed to be a blog with high authority because of the focus on ONE particular topic. So start focusing on interests, hobbies and expertise truly mastered. Do not just go with the flow and a growing trend in the world of blogging. For example, if you have a great interest in the art of paper folding or origami, it does not hurt to write about a variety of issues concerning Origami, rather than just part of it to write about topics that make money from blogging does not actually mastered. Trust me, someday, a blog on the topic Origami yours was definitely a worthwhile experience could serve as a model for writing about the topic make money from blogging if the blog has been really making money. By writing topics of interests or hobbies, you will also be able to enjoy blogging activity for long periods of time.

Similarly, many people can write with a quote from another blog, but not everyone can write based on personal experience. Because not everyone can have a personal experience that really he did. One of the key if you really want to build the authority of your blog is: start writing based on your own experience. Show me proof, not theory. If necessary, use images and photos that can strengthen your writing. By showing proof of authenticity, then your readers will trust you more. Without presenting evidence from your own experience, then your blog will only be one among the thousands of other blogs that just "quote" from another blog.
