2nd Nuffnang Cheque received – RM830.67

vkeongBlog Earnings, Blogging, Nuffnang116 Comments

Happy day! I received my 2nd cheque from Nuffnang. This time, it’s a HUGE payout – RM830.67!! It is also the biggest amount I have received from Nuffnang so far. My first Nuffnang cheque was was RM238.67. What a coincidence, both cheques had sixty-seven cents lol. So, after adding the latest amount, I have earned my first thousand with Nuffnang :) I did purposely accumulate the earnings until this amount, so that it would add up to a thousand.

FYI, I cashed out end of May 2008 and received the cheque this morning. It took approximately one month. So, Nuffnang is well in the payment terms.

It’s all sheer hard work (of non-stop eating) and special thanks to my readers who have been amazingly supportive of my food blog. The most important part to earn with Nuffnang is to establish consistent traffic to your blog. And having a lot of patience! I will share a few methods I use to drive traffic to my blog:

    1. Participate in active forums. Add a link to your blog and your interesting articles in your signature. I am most active in MyKopitiam forums and I receive at least 10-20 visitors to my blog just using this method. 10-20 visitors a day seem little. But, it is already enough to place you in line for ad campaigns!
    2. Exchange links with blogs that have higher/same traffic as yours. It will do its own job of referring visitors.
    3. Leave comments on popular blogs and websites. It is easy to do and extremely effective. A comment I left a few months ago in a popular blog is currently my blog’s top referrer. It is unbelievable how a simple comment can drive traffic!
    4. SEO optimization. Learn how to use keywords in your posts and title and meta tags to drive traffic from popular search engines like Google, Yahoo and Live. Frankly, SEO is not tough to learn.

I treat my blog as a small “business”. To earn from the “business”, you need investments. So, I am going to “invest” some of my earnings to eat more and to blog more lol. Thanks again Nuffnang!

    cool! i was beginning to wonder if it was really possible to earn $$ like this…
    1 question though, how did u manage to still be a Gliterati member (exclusive member) on nuffnang (meaning u can access to Innit), when you are hosting other Ads on ur website?

    Thanks

    Darren’s last blog post..Miracle

    vk: You would need about 600-800 visitors daily, at least. Traffic is one thing.. you also need to have good contents to attract advertisers to actually order an ad campaign for your blog :)

    my achievement.

    Do u necessary to taste all the food to be posted in your blog by yourself? I think you can get the participation from food lovers to send you the photos on the food.

    Like some of the hawker food in Penang, you can actually get the photo from your friends or your counterpart, and you dont have to travel all the times up and down across the states.

    Some of the food are well known for their popularity and widely agreeable to be tasty, with the photos given by them and and your own colour on the comments, I believe it grows your blog or business faster and bigger.

    Of course, the photo must have certain extend of quality and meet your requirements. By doing this, you will be able to attract the amateur photograhers and also the food lovers to participate in your blog and even create greater traffic and volume to your blog.

    What do you think?

    vk: Hi bernard. Your suggestion is very good. But I am running a personal site :) If this was a food website, and not a blog, your suggestion would be very fitting :) I prefer to have my own experience, own photos as well own reviews on my blog hehe. Although some food are already famous, I have yet to try them. So it’s the curiosity and passion that drives me :)

    1. vkeong

      I have stopped using Nuffnang for a very long time so I don’t think I can answer your question anymore. But based on my recent findings the only certain favored bloggers are earning good money from Nuffnang.

    1. vkeong

      Few reasons,

      1. rude support staff
      2. lesser and lesser ad campaigns
      3. only target so called ‘celebrity bloggers’
      4. I hate sponsored posts
      5. foodbuzz is better
      6. did I mention already foodbuzz is better?

  18. ghkoay76

    Hi Vkeong/all,

    would like seek some advise from you, why foodbuzz not allow me to put other ad with foodbuzz like they not allow me to put google ad or nuffnang after I get the foodbuzz publisher?

    1. vkeong

      hi ghkoay76, simply they want to be exclusive advertisers. But it’s actually different for each publisher, some they allow google ads, some they don’t.

      1 thing for sure though, advertlets and nuffnang are not allowed to be shown together with Foodbuzz, by Foodbuzz.

        1. vkeong

          I would suggest you post more often at Lowyat as their membership is much bigger

          I got banned because their staff don’t like me, haha

    RM830.67 are simply too good just because of your blogging hobbies. I simply like to take photos for any awesome events or other things i.e. foods also….
