I have had a busy few weeks, the last little while. I have been working my way around the internet trying to absorb information like a sponge. I started this experiment way back when, and had little to no success. I looked at what I was missing. Traffic! You can't make money running adsense ads if no one is reading them. I joined many sites like technorati, to try to get readers to my page. Starting from scratch there was little luck. Even now that this blog is 8 months old, I am getting more traffic now, then when I first started.

So, how do you get traffic? And how do you get it for little or no money? Traffic exchanges. It's a very simple concept. You become a member, and spend your time clicking on pages, and viewing them for a period of time. Once that time has passed, you get credit for viewing the page. Credits begin to accumulate at various rates for various exchanges. These credits, can then be converted to text ads, banner ads, or full web pages. What ever you have to sell, from your own product, to affiliate programs it can be done via these traffic exchanges.

Over the last few weeks, I have been testing which ones, actually bring me traffic, and which ones don't waste much of my time accumulating my credits. These are the ones I recommend.

1) Traffic Swarm : Great way to increase traffic, some great contests and opportunities to score extra credits.

2)Money and Hits: Easy to use, extra credits available, generates good traffic.

3) Roadrunner Surf : I have one hundreds of bonus credits and banner impressions on this site, with a little effort. In 2 weeks, I had 1 thousand hits to my site.

The last site I am going to recommend is Autohitsnow, it is unique it rotates your websites in other traffic exchanges as well as the one on this site. It also allows you to earn many bonus credits, the longer your surf. In 2 days, I had over 3000 credits. This site will also allow you to generate cash for your credits, and has other opportunites to get cash for clicks. Overall this is the more flexible of all the traffic exchanges I have been using. Although, they are each driving traffic to my site. More traffic = more money!

Here is a great affiliate marketing idea for anyone who is just starting out. It's very simple, sign up to be an affiliate, and the system does the work for you. It will create a web page that combines all the affiliate links it one simple and clean looking web page. The site links to 10,000 different products that you can sell right from your very own page. What makes this system so automatic? Once you sign up, and promote your page, it does all the work for you. Affiliate income will just pile up, and deposited right into you account. 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Isn't that what we all want? What could be easier?

Pennies still trickling in but where are the nickels?

I now have 3 blogs that I am trying to keep up and running. Finding information or ideas for material is the easy part, as my wife to be says, I never stop thinking. My mind goes like the energizer bunny, the crux of the situation is finding the time to write the articles and post them.

This blog, not being very active over the last little while, is still chugging along generating pennies of income, no matter the level of neglect. So my question is where are the nickels? If I can almost totally neglect this blog, and still have it producing some income, how or what do I have to do to take it to the next level? This surely proves that at some level, even though it is so minuscule, passive income can be made in small amounts, but can it be converted to much larger amounts?

I have changed the layout somewhat, changing how the articles are archived, not by date, but by topic, and I have added some extra advertising on the site to see if I can monetize it even more. I know there is a learning curve to all this. So in the mean time, its back to more reading, and learning, and digging for nickels.

I'm relentless when it comes to the internet. Always looking for a new income stream online. I found another one that is so simple and easy that anyone can do it. Well anyone 16 and over. I found a site that pays you to browse the web. It's something that I do for hours a time, why not get paid to do it? Its so simple and so easy, I started making money within seconds....yes seconds of signing up. By taking advantage of the online advertising program, as a potential online consumer, you can actually get paid for your web browsing, up to $5.00 for every 30 seconds worth of work. The income you earn is paid directly to you every month. The best part about the program is that as a potential online consumer, there is no charge to register your new account and begin earning money immediately. What could be easier, what could be better than free money. Gotta luv it!!

Check out the banner at the bottom of the page and start earning money immediately!!!

I have been scouring the web for ideas on how to make money at home. I haven't had very much luck, spending hours and hours looking and researching, trying to find genuine ideas instead of money grabbing scams. I have now turned my basement into a small aviary. I have a love for birds, and an opportunity arose that allowed me to take this small step. I have 2 breeding pair of birds, a pair of yellow sided green cheeks, as well as for lack of a better word, normal green cheeked conures. I do have a blog about what I intend on doing and how it will progress along. If you like to read about it I invite you to stop into the blog and take a look around. I am also in the process of developing a complimentary site but that is at least a month away. Of course, adsense will still be of great interest to me. Maybe I can make a few extra pennies there too.

So, its been a few months since anything has been posted on the blog, and it is to be expected that there has been no new revenue to report. Like a garden that is neglected, it is obvious that without fresh content, and constant attention a blog can die a quick death.

To be honest, I have spent the last several weeks just trying to recover from the holidays, and a job that schedule changes constantly from week to week. Sleep scheduling, family time and just general time to let my mind wander the web, has become difficult. I have been frustrated in trying to make the time to devote to this blog, and re-examine various ways to make money online. Can it be done, of course it can. I have make some very small steps and have made some small amounts of income, the next step is to increase the amount of income derived, or to duplicate the whole process over and over again, or maybe there is a whole new method of generating income.

I have spent many hours scouring the internet for secondary market information for several clients, now it is a matter of taking those skills and applying them to what I need. As a side note, clients pay much better...they 50% up front. If I could figure out how to do this work and pay myself upfront, that would be ideal. Any ideas??

It's a work in progress. So is this blog.
