hi all,

I have been blogging for some days now.. i have a wordpress blog and a blogger blog..

The point is that my wordpress blog is getting a lot of traffic.. but my blogger blog is getting 0 traffic..

I do nothing but posts in wordpress but in blogger.. i do a lot of other stuff(for traffic) other than posting.. but the results are just weird.. why is it so.. why do you think wordpress blog getting a lot of traffic(especially from google search engine) than blogger...??

Now, i have a wordpress blog getting at least 10 views per day...how do i monetize it..

Put google ad's on there if you want.

Personally the ad's would annoy me. I may look into adding some at the bottom of my page at some point.

Are you hosting it yourself, or is it on wordpress.com? Because if you're the host, you can add a wide variety of plugins to your blog :)

I wish my blog got 10 views per day...I wouldn't have to worry about how much resources the server uses then :lolflag:

I used to blog on blogger, I just moved to a custom Wordpress (see here (http://blog.mehall.co.cc))

I would guess OP is on wordpress.com

Surprisingly, wordpress.com seems to get better results in Google than Blogger (I sa surprisingly, because Google OWN blogger!!!)

And yes, just ad adsense ads to your site.

I just have two in my sidebar (non in articles) and one every second item in my RSS feed (apparently... I still need to check feedburner did it's job right)

It allows you to have more control over the site and what it can do.

Check out the big list of plugins and themes. I would definitely recommend getting a custom site if your serious about this.

You can get a free domain here (http://co.cc) and okay hosting here (http://www.l4rge.com) (though it may get weakened again. It's why I moved to my friends hosting) or here (http://www.110mb.com)

i'm appaled by some vocal members in the community, in that they use ad blocker, yes of course to each his own, I just don't understand why they don't have a inkling of charity for bloggers who contribute for the ease of use of free software tools by writing about them.

I use adblocker to stop annoying pop-up ads (not pop-up windows, those expanding ones like Live Messenger has now in Windows) and on random sites.


I have it disabled on Wordpress.com, Blogger.com, My domain (though mostly so I can see if they're still there :P) and a few others (including crunchbanglinux.org)

If I see value in using a site multiple times, I'll disable adblock for them. Otherwise? Nah, it's on.
