Paid by Blogbank!

Philippines Blogbank - Make Money OnlineLast week, I received an email from the Blogbank team that they have already deposited my earnings from them. I checked and it was indeed credited to my bank account already.

This explains why the title of this post ends with an exclamation point (Paid by Blogbank!), as opposed to my other Blogbank article which asked, Got paid by Blogbank? Apparently, I was wrong to ask that question before because I was already paid and I just didn’t check my account!

How to earn passive income from your blogs

It feels weird making a new blog post after almost three weeks of resting. Yes, it’s been almost three weeks since I made my last post (see Free magazines for Filipinos posted on November 15).

This posting hiatus happened for two reasons. One, I went to Singapore and Indonesia from November 17 to 23 and didn’t have time to make any new blog post while I was away.

The second and more important reason is that the posting break was actually an experiment of mine. I was trying to check if blogging can indeed give passive income, and this I did by comparing my Google Adsense income before and after my last blog post.

Here are the results of this experiment.

Top 10 High-Paying Keywords

My friend, a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) freak who owns at least eight (8) different blogs, and I were discussing yesterday about blogging and how to make money from blogs.

I told him about the article I wrote on 7 easy-to-make blogs that can make you money but he said although these are indeed easy to make, these blogs are not necessarily lucrative.

According to him, if one’s goal is to make lots of money by blogging, one should target high-paying keywords. This got me to researching what these top-paying keywords are.

You are not alone. Several PMT Forum members who have been blogging for some time now have reached the same conclusion: Mahirap pala kumita sa blogging.

The Philippines’ Top Blogs of 2008

The year 2008 was a turbulent year not just for the Philippine stock market but for the Philippine blogosphere as well. For one, several bloggers were directly involved in a variety of issues, both good and bad. Last year also saw the rise of a lot of up-and-coming bloggers but, at the same time, a few previously popular bloggers simply stopped writing or just faded into oblivion.

In this article, we recognize Filipino blogs which made a huge jump in their Alexa rankings from the time we started monitoring blogs during the 1st quarter of 2008. A jump in the ranking most likely means the blog is getting more popular, translating to more visitors and perhaps more online income.

We also present here the quarterly change in the ranking of blogs from the 3rd quarter of 2008 to the 1st quarter of 2009.

The results below.

Top 50 Philippine blogs in 4Q 2008

Instead, we opted to simply track the Alexa ranking of Filipino blogs every quarter.

And so we bring you the listing of the Top 50 Philippine Blogs in the 4th Quarter of 2008 based on their 3-month Alexa rank.
