Performancing Ads: Make Money Blog Widget

Imagine how it would feel to wake up each morning, go to your computer, and check how much money you made while you were sleeping. It’s a really nice situation to be in. Well, the Performancing Ads Network makes this possible for thousands of bloggers.

Widgets Make Money!

A few people have kindly asked me how much I've made from this program. So I have decided to share my numbers with you and will be updating every now and then. I've made exactly $290 dollars so far (05/22/09).

How does Performancing Ads Work?

You can simply sell 125 x 125 ad spaces on your blog. You choose how much you want these banner ads to sell for weekly. A site like Mashable wants $750 weekly to advertise on their site. So it's up to you to find out the right price for your own website...

Some Tips

:
  1. Start at a lower price and work your way up.
  2. Once you offer a high price to advertise on your site, be patient, because it might take some time.

How do I get Paid?

All payments are made via Paypal. And you don't have to make $100 before getting paid. You can make as low as $10 and they'll pay you just for that.
The payment schedule works like this:
Say that you make $1000 dollars in March, you'll get paid $1000 via Paypal sometime between April 1 and April 7th.

Can I earn Referring People?

Yes indeed!
  1. Earn $10 for each new publisher or advertiser you refer.
  2. Plus, earn 5% recurring revenue on all advertiser ad buys ... for life.
Let's say that you refer 2 new advertisers per month and each spends an average of $250 per month. Within 1 year, you'd be making a cool $300 per month in 100% passive income.

Change the Title Tags in Blogger for More Search Engine Traffic

By default Blogger displays the blog title first, followed by the name of the post. As you might notice this is not good when it comes to SEO. It's important for the name of the post to come before the name of your blog, especially when it comes to google search results. Learn how to make your post title show up first so that you can reel in more traffic from the search engines.

Why Change the Titles?

It's quite important to have the Post Title + Blog Title arranged accordingly because this is how you would want your blog to be displayed on google's search results. This way more people will click on your link when searching google because the post title is more relevant than your post name.
Example Google Search Results:
You are most likely to click on the bottom image when searching google for the keywords "image reflection generator". The reason being is that your mind reads text from left to right. So it makes sense to have the more important title on the left.


How to Change the Titles:

  1. Go to Layout>edit HTML in your Blogger dashboard.
  2. Search for this tag: <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
  3. Replace this tag with the following code:
  4. <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'> <title><data:blog.title/></title> <b:else/> <title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/></title> </b:if>
  5. Save your template and you should see the results in your web browser as depicted in the images below.
  6. It may take a few days for the changes to show up on the google search results. I guarantee you that you will start receiving more traffic from google once you are re-indexed!

Hide Show DIV Content with Links by using Javascript

The Hide and Show DIV elements for HTML content is a great way to clean up your sidebar. It becomes especially handy for those long blogroll lists or anything that clutters up the blog. Just simply click a link to make all the hidden content magically appear and disappear.

Demo:

+/- Click Here to Expand and Collapse



How to use it in Your Blog

Step 1: Adding CSS and Javascript
First, add this code below directly above the </head> tag.

<style type="text/css">
.commenthidden {display:none}
.commentshown {display:inline}
</style>
<script type="text/Javascript">
function togglecomments (postid) {
var whichpost = document.getElementById(postid);
if (whichpost.className=="commentshown") { whichpost.className="commenthidden"; } else { whichpost.className="commentshown"; }
} </script>

Step 2: Adding the Active Content to be Displayed
Place this code wherever you would like it to appear. Make sure to change the red text to a name that is "unique" to any other name in your template. An example might be "blogroll-dropdown". If you do not give each Hide Show DIV element a unique name the script cannot be used more than once on the same page. The green text is the title of the link that you click on to make the content appear. Replace the code "Expanded Content" with the content you wish to have expand and collapse.

<a aiotitle="click to expand" href="javascript:togglecomments('UniqueName')"
>Link Title</a><br />
<div class="commenthidden" id="UniqueName"
>Expanded Content</div>

Step 3: Sample Code
Here is what my code looks like for the demo above:

<a aiotitle="" href="javascript:togglecomments('hideshowdemo')">+/- Click Here to Expand and Collapse</a>
<div class="commenthidden" id="hideshowdemo"><ul><li><a href="http://howhero.com/">HowHero Tutorials</a></li><li><a href="http://widgetsforfree.blogspot.com/2008/09/translate-blog-widget-using-flags.html">Blog Translation Plugin</a></li><li><a href="http://widgetsforfree.blogspot.com/2008/09/make-money-blog-widget-performancing.html">Make Money Widget</a></li></ul>
