1 - Advertising to monetize your site
Is it a good idea to monetize one's blog with Google Adsense banners?
Why not, if it's done intelligently...
It is important that these banners are not too intrusive and do not scare away your visitors.
It's quite rare actually, for my part, I run away directly if they are popups or if there is a banner in each paragraph.
You will see that the Divi theme allows you to insert a banner at the end of your posts without it being intrusive. And you won't need a plugin for that.
Be careful not to abuse the advertising banners, Google penalizes this !
2 - Other means of monetization
And yes! Monetizing your blog with advertising is quite complicated when you start your site.
For this to be profitable, you will need to have a huge amount of traffic.
You should know that Adsense advertisement pays you a few cents for each click. So, you have to play on the volume, otherwise it is useless...
If you're looking for other types of monetization, here's what you might consider:
- The sale of information products (e-book, e-learning etc.)
- Sponsored articles
Of course, you can combine all these forms of monetization to try to increase your income.
3 - The settings of the Divi Ads tab
Usually, to easily add banner ads within articles, you need a plugin. Here, Divi offers you an easy way to add this feature. However, you will find few options.
1 - Enable 468×60 banner: With this option, you can simply enable or disable banner ads on your site. These will then appear at the end of your articles, just above the comments section.
2 - Select a banner: here, you must enter the URL of an image in 468*60 pixels format. This image must first be inserted in your media library. You will find its URL in the library.
3 - Banner destination URL: since this is an advertising banner, you can choose the destination URL when the user clicks on it. Generally, it will be an affiliate URL or a partner URL.
4 - Google Adsense: if you do not use affiliation, you can simply insert the code of one of your ads generated from your Google Adsense account.
5 - Save: save your changes.
