When it comes to makes money online, I always recommend blogging, because blogging is one of the best ways to make money online. It is an easy way to make money online. The best thing is that every person in this world can do blogging and make money.
Today I am going to share about how you can make more money with WordPress sites or blogs and monetize them with affiliate programs.
The very first thing is to understand, what is blogging?
Blogging is the best way to make money online. In blogging you create or run an online blog where you write regularly on the topics you have decided and share that on various social networks.
To start a blog you need few things:
1) Domain Name:
According to the Complete Domain name guide, “Domain name is the most crucial and most important factor of any online business.”
Where a right domain name can bring sunshine to your blog, a wrong domain name can destroy your reputation. It is really necessary that you should choose a domain name which is relevant to your business, include keywords, make it short & simple, avoid copyright issues and do not use hyphens or numbers in domain name.
A perfect example of a domain name that suits this criterion is Casino.com As you can see the domain name is simple but tells you that the website is about online casino. It has the word casino which is a part of most keywords in the industry.
Another example is Techxmaster.com You will quickly know that the site is about technology because of the word tech. Just like casino.com the domain name is easy to remember.
Remember: The domain name is the name of your business, so do not make any mistakes when choosing a new domain name for your business.
It is always recommended to buy hosting and run self-hosted blogs. Why? Because in self-hosted blogs you have full control over the hosting and content of your blog, but in free hosting you have limited control. More control is always better.
You can buy web hosting from best web hosting service providers such as HostGator, Bluehost, Dreamhost etc. If you read this guide you will learn how to choose the best hosting WordPress sites.
You will also get complete support for any issue related to your hosting or security of your site or blogs.

You should choose a design which not only look goods but should also match the niche of your blog. You should also focus on the font styles, color navigation styles and animations in the theme.
Make sure the theme you choose displays the most important content at homepage and navigation for all other posts and pages. As you want to make money with affiliate programs, make sure the theme is good for running affiliate ads.
With premium theme you also get complete support. The most recommended premium themes are Genesis and Divi.
Now as you have all the things and going to launch your blog, remember WordPress is the best CMS for you. WordPress is easy and fully customizable. Even if you do not have coding knowledge still you can customize it with the help of plug-in and online tutorials.
