How I Make Money from the Comments on my Blog

What truly amazes me about the internet is the amount of different ways people have come up with to make money online, I read recently about a company that makes a heck of a lot of money selling plots in heaven! How they manage to get away with that is something I still can’t figure out.

For the past three months I have been making money from the comments that were published on my old I Need Discipline blog and I am still making money from the comments that get published on my personal blog.

The company I have been using is called PostLinks.

They are a company who sell the following:

  • Guest Posts
  • Text Links
  • Blog Comments

Guest Posts

I have found the guest posts to be of very poor quality, they have either been poorly spun articles lifted from sites like Ezine Articles or they are 20-50 word posts with their link inserted. If you are willing to trawl through the ones that are automatically posted on your blog (you can delete them from your PostLink account) then you will find the odd decent one hidden away.

Text Links

I don’t know where they insert the text links, it certainly isn’t in plain view like in the sidebar, but I do know that the blogs I have sold them on they have broken my theme on the pages they have been sold on.

Blog Comments

Although the blog comments are generic, they don’t look as out of place as some of the comments we find on our blogs on a daily basis. My blogs are no-follow anyway so they are not going to get me into trouble with Google.

You receive credits for each guest post/text link/blog comment that you publish, the amount of credits you earn for each transaction depends on what Page Rank your blog is.

So for each blog comment that I was accepting on I Need Discipline I was receiving 10 credits and each one published on my personal blog was earning me 5. I end up with about 1700 credits and generate about $5, the figure is based on me deploying a 30-day cut off on my posts so someone with no cut off could make significantly more.

It might not appeal to everyone, but to many it is another avenue to explore to make money online.

Do you already use PostLinks? What do you think of a company paying you for blog commenting?

4 Ways To Make An Income Without Displaying Ads

A quick glance around this blog will show evidence that I display quite a lot of advertisements from a selection of different advertising networks, both CPM ads and CPC ads. Some bloggers don’t mind having them but I know that some people would rather look at other ways to make an income from their blog.

  1. 1700 credit and $5. to me this is very poor, it might be around 10 cent per post?
    ANd one thing i like about blog/website is that you can make money from virtually everything and anything.

  2. Hi Dean,

    I’ve never heard of post links before. I must look them up but it looks like it is more WIN for them than the blogger. I don’t like the idea of the guest posts, but the blog comments sounds OK. I know some bloggers who charge at least $150 for a guest post on their sites. I’m still unsure whether this is Google friendly or not as you are effectively paying for a link to pass PR.

    Keep up the good work,
    ~Mark

  3. Hi Dean great share about post link but i do have an question which i saw an review on Google people out there mentioning that when I’m trying to register the message convey that your link already been available on our database between the respective person says that not registered yet on this website and I’m the owner of this particular blog how could this happen do this guest bloggers doing any scam and i guess postlink admin not taken an action against this so whats your experience on this Dean

    • I have never come across this problem with them, the only thing I can think of is that your blog/site/domain was purchased from someone who listed it with them when they owned it. I have found the support team to be very helpful, especially when I email them to tell them off! 🙂

  4. Hi Dean,
    It is very new concept’ post links’ . I wish to try for my site. If the page rank of particular blog post is nil and the home page PR is 3 means should i get credits 10? or it should be based on the blog post page. If any company pay for good quality comment means it should be great. Thanks for sharing such a useful article here

  5. All ways are good to make money on the internet, but you just have to be on the right side of the law and Google’s law and regulations. I think Google will rank this as selling links and you will be penalized by Google.

  6. Hi Dean,
    I’ve never heard of postlink before but this sounds mouthwatering. I wouldn’t want to implement link text on my current blog but I’ll definitely give it a try on my secondary blog when I have one. Have a great week ahead.

  7. Wow, amazing way to make money from blog comments. I never knew we could make money from blog comments, PostLinks seems to be a great money maker, I’ll give it a try soon.

  8. First time ever I heard that through comments one can earn money. I will surely follow these tips and apply them on my blog. Thanks a lot
