With more and more people going onto the Internet, there are now many ways for bloggers to directly make money on blogging. The major way to monetize your blog is by placing advertising on your site.

One system is pay-per-click, wherein you get paid every time a visitor to your site clicks on the ad. A blogger can also get paid based on the number of views the ad enjoys.
