Starting a Revenue sharing site looks a difficult task yet in real sense, the same can be done even without spending a dime as in programming or even owning your own top level website just like Hubpages, Infobarrel, Seekyt, CrowdAnswers, Webanswers and any other you might happen to know. These are not just words but if you are committed and very eager and willing to start your own revenue sharing site so as to enjoy the benefits which come with such sites for example earning endlessly and others, then you got to stay tuned and continue reading this line by line.
Since this article focuses on how to do the above using Google’s free Blog service Blogger, then the whole article is going to rotate around how you can start a revenue sharing site on Blogger blogs. In brief, Blogger is a free Blogging service by Google where anyone can create unlimited blogs in addition to monetizing them with any ad service including Google Adsense. You know it that Google Adsense is the worlds most paying service which many people and almost every one would like to join and become a publisher due to the benefits involved and therefore, this article will too focus on Google Adsense as the revenue ad service while Blogger as the Blog.
Creating a Revenue Sharing site as outlined on the Google developers page is not an easy task since there are some requirements which tend to be hard and not easy to achieve especially for the new sites and those which have a low number of traffic for example, in order for a site to be granted the Adsense Host API, a minimum of at least 100,000 daily page views on that particular website is required, and if you happen to have a website which has all that much, then you should not read this but rather use the Host API option.
If you don’t know, Blogger has an option to invite authors to any Blogger Blogger from the Admin end and which works in such a way that you select the add author option, the system send an invitation to the email you enter and once the the other party accepts and joins your Blog, he or she automatically becomes an author with rights to create articles, edit them and others, and which is one similar thing which happens on the well known Revenue sharing sites although for Blogger, there is a limit of the number of people who can become authors on your Blog.
Once you have the number of people as authors on your Blog, then any one can start monetizing his or her posts by way of inserting a single and one time code in the Blog HTML section and which means that the more articles one writes, the higher the chances of earning. With this simple code you see below, you can add Ad codes of all your authors by way of editing and adding a line of another authors adds and below are the steps.
1. Request all authors to create new Ad units depending on the type you are to use for example 250 x 250 ad unit and any other.
2. Let them use any parsing tool for example here to parse the Adsense code.
3. Now as the admin of the Blog, log in to your Blog, choose templates and click on EDIT HTML.
4. Now using commands CTRL + F, find the below code;
5. Now just after the code or below it, add this code again below;
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'> <b:if cond='data:post.author == "author name 1"'> Parsed adsense code here <strong> </b:if> <b:if cond='data:post.author == "author name 2"'> Parsed adsense code here </b:if>
Points to Note:
1. The author name 1, author name 2 and others should be replaced by the real Blogger authors names as shown under every one post.
2. The parsed code here is where you should paste every authors Adsense parsed code corresponding to his or her author name.
3. In the code above are three authors and if you have many like 100 of them, just keep adding the same code below with unique author names till they are over.
The results of the code and formula above are that each author will have a single Ad code below his or her post titles or below the contents – check here on how to add Adsense Ads below Blogger post titles and below contents, which means that as the Blog Admin, you will be able to add your own Ads on other spots like side bars and others provided the number of Ad units stay as Google allows.
Thinking that this is not allowed by Google Adsense, check out this article on Google’s Adsense Blog.
