As reported by googleaffiliatenetwork-blog (04/18/2012), Blogger is a free tool that enables anyone to publish a blog and have a voice on the web. When people share words, thoughts and photos on their blogs, they’re sharing their passions with the world. Here at Google Affiliate Network, we see that many of our publishers use Blogger, and often times they’re passionate about brands or products that they believe in.
We’re excited to announce that starting today, a new gadget called Google Affiliate Ads for Blogger will be available to select U.S. Blogger users. This gadget makes it easy for Blogger users to insert an affiliate ad into a blog post and earn a commission when someone clicks the link and makes a purchase on the advertiser’s site.
Overview on Google Affiliate Ads for Blogger
The Google Affiliate Ads is a new look of Affiliate Marketing Network by Google and a positive initiative towards the publisher who post about brands or products review on their blog and recommend their readers to go for that product. This is new way to monetize website’s post.
When a blog visitor clicks your affiliate ad and makes a purchase, you may earn a commission for referring that visitor. Whenever you write a post about a brand, product, review and service this Google Affiliate Ad widget will help you to display a relevance affiliate ad on your report or review. You can choose a relevant ad that can be a test-link ad, an image or full size ads.
Earnings from your Google Affiliate Ads will be paid through your AdSense account. You don’t need to run AdSense ads to earn from Google Affiliate Ads.
