Finally Google decided to share its revenue from YouTube.
Choose categories or have Google target your site content, and decide which categories you want to exclude. … Bring users to your site more often and keep them there longer with highly revelant, frequently refreshed video from popular content providers.
Looks like you can’t have ads if you display your own video.
The player for ads enabled video can also be customized to suit the website theme and layout.
Here is the screen-shot of the information page.
My adsense account doesn’t seem to be updated to incorporate YouTube till now (Is your’s updated?). If you don’t have adsense account, you can get one by clicking on the white button on top of this page.
Does the image in left look like something weird?
Yes zero everything and earnings $25. That is what the welcome screen stats looks like when you sign-in Auction Ads for the first time. That is great to get some money for doing nothing.
Auction Ads is a advertisement network set-up to promote eBay auctions and they promise to pay 100% of eBay commission revenue. Auction Ads is not contextually based ad product so it can go along with Google Ads too.
If you are wondering why they are paying $25 for every new publisher, there sure is a catch. They have increased the minimum payout amount to $50 so you have to earn another $25 from the advertisements to be eligible to receive your first pay in PayPal. If you want to sign-up here is the referral link.
(UPDATE: – Auction ads has stopped doing business. The links have been removed.)
Last month I started writing for pay-per-post and I also got some money from it. It is in the PayPal account and as I haven’t used it. It sure will be helpful in paying the server bills. I have to think about what to do with the remaining amount
Well, before starting to post paid posts in this blog I thought about it a lot. Some people told that it degrades our morality or it is like selling our soul and so on. But those same people were happily posting other advertisements like Google ads and talk proudly about sponsors in their websites. If you think in similar manner, all my paid postings are in “sponsored” category and you can easily skip them to read other postings. I am not forced to take every opportunity that come in my way. Also, I believe I have a moral compass that works well enough to tell me its wrong to post dishonestly just to make cash.
If you are blogging for at least 3 months and haven’t been lazy enough in updating it regularly you can apply for payperpost account and get paid to blog about the things you like from its big pool of opportunities. Payperpost is a platform in which bloggers write posts linking to advertisers’ websites, fitting within the advertiser’s guidelines for the post. The bloggers get paid via PayPal once the post has been live for 30 days. Blogging opportunities range from few dollars to hundreds of dollars depending on ranking of your website based on various parameters. I would suggest you to give it a try if you haven’t already.
(UPDATE – the links result in error so they have been removed)
Well well well just posted an article about making money out of photos and then started researching (That’s not how things shouldn go …. A lesson for me!!). I found the link tried the website and thought it was ok to share among you people ….
(shall I remove the post ?… well let me leave it for now!)
Then I found some sites posted in this blog that helps making some money with your photos stock. Let me list them here:
BigStockPhoto requires a photo seller to take the Photographer Test after studying the Tutorial pages. If you pass youll be able to upload photos, which will be reviewed by the editors. When users download them, you earn fifty cents each time (or up to $60 for some downloads if you have elected to also sell photos under our Special Licensing agreements). BigStockPhoto mail checks or make payment to you via Paypal or MoneyBookers.

Shutterstock pays 25 cents per download and it also has a referral program that users can also earn from. ShutterStock also accepts stock footage. Images must be at least 2.5 megapixel to be accepted. But new photographers minimum size is 4.0MP. Pay checks are mailed monthly.
To make the most out of making money online with stock photography make sure that your image is original and truly copyrighted by you. All trademarks must be removed. This includes logos, brands and entities with copyright or trademarked elements. This many also extend to trademarked products such as cast sculptures, toys, architecture and other elements of design. This is necessary to avoid future legal problems.
Always check the sellers portion for frequently asked questions, you better check it out first before trying to publish your work and sell your photos. This will help a lot in clarifying whatever you want to know about how to make money online from that stock photo site.
Also, dont forget to know what are the most in-demand image subjects to avoid wasting your time uploading least requested images.
Sounds great and I hope this is useful to you. Good Luck!
