Make Money Online: Geo Targeting Nuffnang Ads

Last October, we started a poll asking bloggers how much they earn by putting Nuffnang ads on their blogs. Twenty eight (28) bloggers responded. Out of the total number of respondents, fifteen (15) bloggers or 54% revealed that they earn less than P500 as of response time.

That's pretty low, sad to say. But of course, we understand that it depends on site traffic, the Nuffnang ads available for a particular blog category, and the frequency of Nuffnang ads being served on a blog.

It has been our tradition to provide tips to blogging friends to make money online. If you consider yourself as one of them, take these tips as one way of sharing to you a doable method to double, or increase somehow, your blog earnings with Nuffnang.

We call this strategy “geo targeting.”

Wikipedia defines “geo targeting” in internet marketing as “the method of determining the geolocation of a website visitor and delivering different content to that visitor based on his or her location, such as country, region/state, city, metro code/zip code, organization, IP address, ISP or other criteria.”

Geo targeting likewise means that you have to have content that's designed to attract readers from a particular country; in our case, the Philippines.

Based on the following figures provided by Blogger Stats, this blog has visitors coming from the Philippines hundreds of thousands more than the number of visitors from global locations.

This is because we made sure that our posts focus more on topics that have impact on Filipinos and their families than with international concerns. As you can see, our post titles pertain to Philippine news and events (we don't have to elaborate if you've visited this site more often) are evident.

Nuffnang Philippines put ads more frequently on member blogs with contents that most pinoys will be interested of. Geo targeting, therefore, applies.

You have to create interesting, catchy, brief, concise and useful posts for your local readers. Remember the rule “Content is King?”

We admit though it is not easy to transform your blog into something that targets local readers, specially if you've started a site that tackles topics for foreigners. And it's not easy to create a new one for the purpose of geo targeting either. It's pretty tiring to think that you have to wait several more months, or even years, before it gets stable.

However, thankfully, Nuffnang allows addition of new blogs if your pioneer member blog already existed long enough to convince them that you exist in this vast world wide web and is capable of making a baby blog as popular as the mother blog.

One more thing, be a Nuffnang Glitterati. Believe me, there are more privileges and advantages in stored for exclusive Nuffnang bloggers than regular members.
