How To Add Ads On Your Blog

One of the easiest ways to earn money from your blog is by placing ads on your website. Those little pop up ads you see when you visit a website is an ad generated by the ad program. There are so many programs available and each have the same or different requirements depending on your website and program in question. It’s important to note that you need to buy your domain name if you would like to add ads on your website. You can’t add or monetise your blog if you don’t buy your domain.

Placing ads on a website isn’t complicated at all since the program will do everything for you, you just need to make sure that your website fits their requirements and you can choose where to place those ads. It’s as simple as that! In today’s post, I wanted to share with you ways to add ads on both self-hosted websites as well as websites under a hosting service platform which in this case is WordPress.com. Without further ado, let’s jump to the post!

L’un des moyens les plus simples de gagner de l’argent avec votre blog consiste à placer des annonces sur votre site Web. Ces petites publicités pop-up que vous voyez lorsque vous visitez un site Web sont une publicité générée par le programme publicitaire. Il y a tellement de programmes disponibles et chacun a des exigences identiques ou différentes en fonction de votre site Web et du programme en question. Il est important de noter que vous devez acheter votre nom de domaine si vous souhaitez ajouter des annonces sur votre site Web. Vous ne pouvez pas ajouter ou monétiser votre blog si vous n’achetez pas votre domaine.

Placer des publicités sur un site Web n’est pas du tout compliqué puisque le programme fera tout pour vous, il vous suffit de vous assurer que votre site Web répond à leurs besoins et vous pouvez choisir où placer ces publicités. C’est aussi simple que ça! Dans l’article d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous des moyens d’ajouter des publicités sur des sites Web auto-hébergés ainsi que sur des sites Web sous une plate-forme de service d’hébergement qui dans ce cas est WordPress.com. Sans plus tarder, passons à l’article!

ON A HOSTING SERVICE PLATFORM

(EG. WORDPRESS.COM)

With WordPress.com, you are only able to add ads on your website by upgrading to a premium, business or eCommerce plan. Even in that case, you will only be able to use one ad program which is WordAds. You can’t use any other ad program unless you go self-hosted. It’s fairly easy to place ads on your website through WordAds. If you go to your settings, you can choose where you would like your ads to appear such as at the end of your blog posts, in your sidebar, footer, etc.

You don’t have to worry about the types of ads appearing or their advertisers, in the sense they might show inappropriate ads on your website which can be some people’s concern (lol). Most of the times, it generates ads for WordPress.com but depending on what you have searched in your browser – you may find some of those companies/products as ads. So it’s not something to worry about!

Unlike other ads programs, WordAds doesn’t have any requirements which means if you use any of the paid plans I’ve mentioned above – you will instantly be able to monetise your website through ads. Note that the average CPM (Cost Per Thousand) is extremely low compared to other ad programs. If you gain a decent amount of traffic on your blog consistently every month and would like to earn money from ads, I would recommend to go self-hosted.

Avec WordPress.com, vous ne pouvez ajouter des publicités sur votre site Web qu’en passant à un plan premium, business ou de eCommerce. Même dans ce cas, vous ne pourrez utiliser qu’un seul programme publicitaire qui est WordAds. Vous ne pouvez utiliser aucun autre programme publicitaire, sauf si vous êtes auto-hébergé. Il est assez facile de placer des annonces sur votre site Web via WordAds. Si vous accédez à vos paramètres, vous pouvez choisir où vous souhaitez que vos annonces apparaissent, par exemple à la fin de vos articles de blog, dans votre barre latérale, pied de page, etc.

Vous n’avez pas à vous soucier des types d’annonces diffusées ou de leurs annonceurs, dans le sens où ils peuvent diffuser des annonces inappropriées sur votre site Web, ce qui peut préoccuper certaines personnes. La plupart du temps, il génère des publicités pour WordPress.com, mais en fonction de ce que vous avez recherché dans votre navigateur, vous pouvez trouver certaines de ces sociétés / produits sous forme de publicités. Il n’y a donc pas de quoi s’inquiéter!

Contrairement à d’autres programmes publicitaires, WordAds n’a aucune exigence, ce qui signifie que si vous utilisez l’un des plans payants que j’ai mentionnés ci-dessus, vous pourrez instantanément monétiser votre site Web via des publicités. Notez que le CPM moyen (coût par mille) est extrêmement faible par rapport à d’autres programmes publicitaires. Si vous gagnez une quantité décente de trafic sur votre blog chaque mois et que vous souhaitez gagner de l’argent grâce aux publicités, je vous recommande de vous auto-héberger.

ON A SELF-HOSTED WEBSITE

(WORDPRESS & BLOGGER)

With a self-hosted website, you have a lot more options when it comes to ad programs. However, you will need to apply in order to get accepted. This is pretty obvious but you can only use one ad program on your website meaning that you can’t use two different ad programs on a website. You are obviously free to switch to another ad program. Most of those programs’ requirements are based on your traffic.

They will expect your website to reach a minimum amount of traffic per month and if you don’t reach that number, unfortunately your request won’t be accepted. But don’t worry! You can always try it again once you reach that number. Some programs are quite specific about that number for instance they will expect you to reach a specific number of monthly page views and unique visitors. But it will be clearly stated on their website.

As I mentioned for WordAds, once you are accepted, setting up ads on your website is very easy. It will automatically generate ads on your website and you can choose where you want to place them. Some programs can be quite *excessive* with their ads, in the sense they will appear everywhere and anywhere. The website will be flooded with ads and you won’t be able to change it in the settings either. With most of these programs, you will be able to choose what types of ads you don’t want to appear.

>> The ad programs I would recommend are Google AdSense and Mediavine.

Avec un site Web auto-hébergé, vous avez beaucoup plus d’options en matière de programmes publicitaires. Cependant, vous devrez postuler pour être accepté. C’est assez évident, mais vous ne pouvez utiliser qu’un seul programme publicitaire sur votre site Web, ce qui signifie que vous ne pouvez pas utiliser deux programmes publicitaires différents sur un site Web. Vous êtes évidemment libre de passer à un autre programme publicitaire. La plupart des exigences de ces programmes sont basées sur votre trafic.

Ils s’attendront à ce que votre site Web atteigne un minimum de trafic par mois et si vous n’atteignez pas ce nombre, votre demande ne sera malheureusement pas acceptée. Mais ne t’inquiète pas! Vous pouvez toujours réessayer une fois que vous avez atteint ce nombre. Certains programmes sont assez spécifiques sur ce nombre, par exemple, ils s’attendront à ce que vous atteigniez un nombre spécifique de pages vues mensuelles et de visiteurs uniques. Mais cela sera clairement indiqué sur leur site Web.

Comme je l’ai mentionné pour WordAds, une fois que vous êtes accepté, la mise en place d’annonces sur votre site Web est très simple. Il générera automatiquement des annonces sur votre site Web et vous pourrez choisir où vous souhaitez les placer. Certains programmes peuvent être assez * excessifs * avec leurs publicités, dans le sens où ils apparaîtront partout et n’importe où. Le site Web sera inondé d’annonces et vous ne pourrez pas non plus le modifier dans les paramètres. Avec la plupart de ces programmes, vous serez en mesure de choisir les types d’annonces que vous ne souhaitez pas diffuser.

>> Les programmes publicitaires que je recommanderais sont Google AdSense et Mediavine.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING!

  1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this subject- I have WordAds on my site, and I don’t have enough viewers to make a lot from it but it’s nice to know I have that passive income working in the background all the time x

    1. My pleasure love! If it makes you feel better, you can’t actually make a lot even if you have a lot of viewers. I don’t know if they do it on purpose but once you start to gain a lot of traffic, they decrease their CPM drastically and their CPM are already very low to begin with (compared to other ad programs). So you can’t really earn a lot and it might take years to reach the minimum outstanding amount that’s why I would recommend people to go self-hosted if they get a significant amount of traffic and would like to earn a decent amount of money through ads. Thank you so much for reading x

    2. It’s not a big deal to me either but I know many bloggers who earn around £200-£300 on an average every month through ads. Some even earn thousands of pounds through ads only x

  2. Thank you very much for sharing knowledge I will definitely follow your ideas

  3. “One of the easiest ways to earn money from your blog is by placing ads on your website” — I vehemently disagree! (but I still ❤ your blog 😉 )

    IMHO it would be much easier to turn a blog into a community. Members could post, posts not only comment. For that, they would pay a membership fee. Advertising imposes ad tracking on people who don't know how to prevent such invasions on their privacy. There are many problems with ads — I could go on for a long time (but you probably already know that from my own writing 😉 ).

    1. Haha I personally find memberships to be a great way to monetise a blog but ads are much easier in my opinion. A membership requires a lot of good quality content as well as a great community. People are paying a fee every month whereas with ads, your readers or anyone don’t have to pay anything. With ads, you don’t have to do anything.

      Unless you are putting informative content, people aren’t going to pay the fee for the membership every month. There are obviously both pros and cons for both options but in my opinion, I would say ads are an easy and hassle free way to make money through blogs. Thank you so much for reading 😊

    2. Well, it may sound a little loony to you, but when I explained the theory to some important people @ ebay (aka TEH founder 😉 ) … about 15 years ago … they got it … and bought shopping.com !! 😀 Another good example os Barry Diller’s IAC, or the way Google & Amazon have lately been investing very heavily in TLDs (they’re actually making a mistake, but they’ve never really listened to me anyways 😛 )

    1. Haha I’m not going to lie when a website is flooded ads, it decreases the speed of my laptop and I instantly close the website. But it allows them to earn money so it’s good for them. Thank you so much for reading lovely ❤️

  4. here I am crying while trying to understand how to set up my blog, though I’m glad I saw your post… I’m trying to build a reputation on the internet then maybe I can be self hosted

    1. I really needed that … It’s a learning curve with WordPress. I came from blogspot where everything was available… Your articles on blogging have been so helpful lol thanks

    1. I read the post just now. I wanted to ask that since I have already paid up for a premium plan on wordpress for a year, if I plan to go self hosted next year, so I don’t have to pay to wordpress then ryt?

    2. WordPress(.org) and WordPress.com are completely two different platforms so if you plan to go self-hosted next year, you will have to pay for WordPress.

  5. Although I am 1 year already in this platform, still lots of things I have to learn. I read a lot about monetizing blogs but I did not tried it yet. Lot of worries clouded my mind. May I ask for a help? ☺️

  6. Just a reminder: “Advertising through third-party ad networks like Google AdSense, OpenX, Lijit, BuySellAds, and Vibrant Media, or selling advertising space on your site, is only permitted on sites that have the WordPress.com Business and eCommerce Plans. Sites on the WordPress.com Premium plan can use WordAds, Affiliate Linking, or Sponsored posts to generate advertising revenue” according to https://wordpress.com/support/monetize-your-site/

    1. I didn’t know that the business and eCommerce plan allowed third party ad programs, it wasn’t the case the last time I checked so it’s amazing!

    1. So glad it was helpful! Yes, only one ad program is allowed on one website. It doesn’t matter if you use a paid plan or have a self-hosted website.
