First thing first, Can YouTube really earn me any money? If yes, how much?
Well, to answer this questions, I will say a big Yes. Yes, you can definitely and legitimately earn money from YouTube. Many of the social media marketers are earning good amount of money from their YouTube videos. But to answer how much money you can earn from YouTube, I must say it varies for various publishers. It may be $100 per day or $1000 per day or $100 a month or $1000 in a month or in some period. No one can tell exactly how much you are going to earn from YouTube videos. It completely depends on how much visitors you get to your YouTube videos. As much visitors you get, your earning will be proportionate to that amount. If you don’t know how to achieve this, I will tell you how.

What you need to make money on YouTube: Prerequisites  

  1. An account with Google: Yes, Youtube is a Google product and you need a google account to login to YouTube. If you already have a gmail account then just sign in to YouTube via that logon credentials. If you do not have an account with Google, then sign up for one, then log in to YouTube.
  2.  Original and high quality(optional) videos: You need some videos to upload to YouTube. The videos should be unique and copyright free, in other words the videos are made by you. You can upload any kind of videos to YouTube, whether it be a video of your last night party with your friends, a moving train or a tutorial video to do something or anything you like. Note that, you cannot upload pornographic or sexually explicit videos to YouTube. You can try uploading such videos to get banned by Google. The quality of the videos should good, preferably in high definition, but this is optional. You can upload low quality videos also to YouTube and YouTube will not bar you to upload videos based on quality. But, good quality videos are advisable because it will be more pleasurable to your viewers. You can copy videos from somewhere else and upload to YouTube, but this will not enable you to monetize the video. Google will not entertain your application for monetization with duplicate videos.
   3. Visitors and subscribers to your videos. People will subscribe to your YouTube channel if they like your videos and they will come again and again whenever you post new videos to your channel. Make a plan how you will circulate the link of your YouTube videos through various social media sharing or any other legitimate means.

What you need to do to set up your YouTube channel?

Step 1: Log in to YouTube using your Google account and go to your profile. Click on ‘Create a Channel’ to set up your new YouTube channel. Note that you can give any name to your channel. It can be your real name, any keyword like dancing videos, health tips, blogging tips and tricks or anything. Using a keyword which has a good amount of searches in Google everyday can be beneficial in getting traffic to your channel. But whatever name you give, make it simple. Do not use complicated words or phrases.
Step 2: Click on Video Manager. Video Manager is a store of all your YouTube videos. You can see all your videos uploaded to YouTube in one place. You can categorize your videos, add descriptions to individual videos from Video Manager.
Step 3: Upload your unique videos to your YouTube channel. Write something about the video in the video description. Add some relevant tags to the description. The tags will enable YouTube to categorize your videos and to show them to appropriate viewers.
Step 4: Now the most important part comes. Click on ‘View Additional Features’ option in the side panel. In the additional features, you will see an option YouTube Monetization. This is nothing but the YouTube revenue sharing program of Google Adsense. Now, click on ‘Enable Monetization’ button. There, click on ‘Enable my account’ option. You are almost done now. Just read the terms and conditions and agreement for monetization. You need to accept those terms by clicking ‘I Accept’ button.
Step 5: Now all you have to do is wait for 24 hours. You will get an email within 24 hours regarding the YouTube monetization. After reading the instructions in the email, go to Video manager in your YouTube channel and you will get an option for monetization in each of your videos. Just enable that option and you are done. Now concentrate on getting visitors to your YouTube channel by sharing it to social media sharing websites or by any other means and happy earning.

Facebook to acquire WhatsApp : The messaging app will now belong to Facebook

Leave a Comment
"I'm excited to announce that we've agreed to acquire WhatsApp and that their entire team will be joining us at Facebook." In his official Facebook page, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announces. So, the most widely used messaging app will be now a part of Facebook. WhatsApp has a 450 billion active users worldwide. WhatsApp Messenger being a cross-platform mobile messaging app 
Facebook-acquires-WhatsApp

for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia allows to send text, video, images, audio files to other users in your contact list. It is the most popular messaging app among the smartphone users. Because of its brilliant features, it gained popularity among mobile device users in a short period of time.
According to Wikipedia, WhatsApp handled ten billion messages per day in August 2012, growing from two billion in April 2012, and one billion the previous October. On June 13, 2013, WhatsApp announced on Twitter that they had reached their new daily record by processing 27 billion messages. According to the Financial Times, WhatsApp "has done to SMS on mobile phones what Skype did to international calling on landlines."
In 19 February, 2014, Facebook announced acquiring the fast growing mobile messaging startup WhatsApp for $19 billion. This amount is more than the amount Facebook got in its IPO. WhatsApp's 450 million active users are being bought by Facebook for a more modest $42 each which is more than the $30 Facebook ogt in its IPO. Facebook will pay $4 billion in cash and the remaining $12 billion in Facebook shares and $3billion in restricted stock units (RSU).
One major fact behind the popularity of WhatsApp is because it is free of cost for the first year and it can be renewed for a minimal cost for another specified time period. Now, WhatsApp going to the hand of Facebook may employ new rules for its users.  WhatsApp was founded in 2009 and currently it has fewer than 60 employees. Interesting point here is that Facebook co-founder Brian Acton was rejected a job by Facebook in 2009 after which he co-founded WhatsApp.
"WhatsApp will complement our existing chat and messaging services to provide new tools for our community. Facebook Messenger is widely used for chatting with your Facebook friends, and WhatsApp for communicating with all of your contacts and small groups of people. Since WhatsApp and Messenger serve such different and important uses, we will continue investing in both and making them each great products for everyone." Zuckerberg says in his post on his official Facebook page. So, Facebook users may expect some changes in the existing messaging technology employed by Facebook in recent future.

Tips to comment on Blog Posts
Before you start commenting on any blog posts, remember that you don’t need to comment anywhere and everywhere just to get backlinks. Try to read and understand what is the content in their blog, try to make some sense with your comment. Don’t leave a comment like ‘Hi I loved it’ or ‘Good stuff man’. Try to describe what you have understood and what was good in it. Try to suggest something if something strikes your mind. To add a link to your blog in your comment, format your comment like this:
[[YOUR COMMENT WITH BLAH BLAH BLAH]]
<a href=’http://yourblogurl’>YOUR BLOG NAME</a>
Even if you don’t format your comment like this and just type your blog URL, then also CommentLuv will create a link, but this is the clever way. That’s it. If you liked this article, please share us. Thanks.

text-align: left;'>
<b:section class='footer-column' id='col1' preferred='yes'
style='float:left;'/>
</div>
<div id='footer2' style='width: 40%; float: left; margin:0;
text-align: left;'>
<b:section class='footer-column' id='col2' preferred='yes'
style='float:left;'/>
</div>
<div id='footer3' style='width: 30%; float: right; margin:0;
text-align: left;'>

add-3-column-footer-to-blogger
 Go to Layout of your blogger template. You should see a footer like the following image:
Click on Add a Gadget link and add an HTML/Javascript gadget.
Copy and paste the following code to the HTML/Javascript gadget.

<script type="text/javascript">
function recentpostslist(json) {
 document.write('<ul>');
 for (var i = 0; i < json.feed.entry.length; i++)
 {
    for (var j = 0; j < json.feed.entry[i].link.length; j++) {
      if (json.feed.entry[i].link[j].rel == 'alternate') {
        break;
      }
    }
var entryUrl = "'" + json.feed.entry[i].link[j].href + "'";
var entryTitle = json.feed.entry[i].title.$t;
var item = "<li>" + "<a href="+ entryUrl + '" target="_blank">' + entryTitle + "</a> </li>";
 document.write(item);
 }
 document.write('</ul>');
 }
</script>
<script src="http://www.techbhuvan.com/feeds/posts/summary/-/CATEGORY?max-results=5&alt=json-in-script&callback=recentpostslist"></script>
<div id='attrib'><a href='http://www.techbhuvan.com' rel='dofollow'></a></div>

Replace the word ‘CATEGORY’ with your own category which you want to show in your footer column. also change the max-result=5 attribute to any number you desire. This will change the maximum number of posts you want to show in the feed. I have limited it to 5 posts. You may change it to 8, 10 or whatever you want. Save your widget.
Add 3 HTML/Javascript gadgets in all three columns and add the above code with your desired post category. You are done. You should see something similar to my footer in your blog.

#techbhuvanfootr .footer-wrap ul li {
padding: 5px 0 5px 15px;
overflow: hidden;
border-bottom: 1px solid #343434;

You know that social media takes a major role in driving traffic in this social media age. Many people come to visit your site from links they found on social media websites like facebook or twitter.

Steps to add Social Media sharing button Pop-up box to Blogger:

Step I: I presume that you are logged into your blogger account and in your specific blog Dashboard. If you are not logged in, you have to log into your account.
Step II: Go to Layout. Then add a new HTML/Javascript Gadget wherever you want in your blog.


Step III: copy the following code snippet and paste it into the HTML/Javascript widget.
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href=" https://googledrive.com/host/0Bxkt_m71GCSOX1U2VDR5UkNnejA">

<script type="text/javascript" src=" https://googledrive.com/host/0Bxkt_m71GCSObGxYem1CSWJBUGc">
</script>        
<script>       
$(document).ready(function(){
$().socialTrafficPop({timeout: 30,
title: "Welcome To TechBhuvan.com ",                   
message: 'Please Sahre and <em>Help Us To Grow</em>! ',

Leave a Comment
Google Adsense is unarguably the best CPC advertising platform for bloggers and online marketers. Being the product of Google and for consistant good service to its users Adsense has already made a strong trust among the bloggers and online writers who earns a living writing on the web. Many people are earning a good amount of money from Adsense ads and many have chosen blogging and online writing as their day job just because of strong potential to earn money online with advertising. But in every case, not all bloggers get an approved Adsense account from Google to display ads on their website or blog. So, they must look for some alternative for contextual ads on their blogs. But which one? There are many firms which are providing advertising services for bloggers and web developers to monetize his work. But you cannot trust all of them to be legit and you cannot guarantee that you will earn money from its ads because some ad serving companies provide really poor advertises and very low CPC. for bloggers from India, the scenario is worse.
Because, many ad serving agencies largely depends upon the traffic from US and Canada, and you will not earn a good amount unless you get huge traffic from these regions. In this article, I am going to discuss some of the best Ad serving networks for Indian bloggers.

Why you need an alternative to Adsense?

There may be many reasons to choose an alternative to Google Adsense for CPC ads on you website. For example -

You are not able to get an approved Google Adsense account. Google is very much selective in approving its publishers. If your blog does not meet Adsense’s requirements, you will not be able to get your account approved from Google subsequently not getting any ads displayed on your blog. 
Adsense account may be terminated at any time. Google scrutinize the performance of the ads on your website, and if it detects any false click or click frauds on your blog, your account is subject to termination. So, you need another advertising platform.
If you account is about hacking or cracking and related to that kind of information, you are not eligible for an Adsense account. You must not apply for Adsense and look for a good alternative.
If your website is not so old, i.e you have set up your website or blog recently and want to monetize it, but Google will not approve your blog for Adsense ads before it is at least 6 months old. So you need an alternative ad serving platform before you can apply for Adsense. Adsense is also not for bloggers who gets less traffic. You will not get approved from Google unless you have a very good traffic to your blog. 
Adsense does not support websites in Indian languages. So if you are blogging in your own language like Hindi or Bengali or Tamil, you will definitely not get advertising form Adsense. Hence you need an alternative solution to monetize your blog.



What are the best alternatives to Google Adsense for Indian bloggers?


There are many ad serving agencies in terms of delivering a monetizing solution to your blog. But can you make money in the same efficiency form each one of them? The answer is ‘NO’. And you can not simply trust every Ad serving agencies that they will definitely send money to you after you have earned enough. So, when considering to monetize your blog with contextual ads be selective and place the best ads from best provider which turns your traffic into good revenue. As I have mentioned earlier that if you do not have enough traffic from US and Canada, you cannot earn enough form every contextual ads serving company. I have done some research in selecting CPC ad platforms and tried some of them and found some are really useful for Indian bloggers. You may try the following 10 best contextual ad services to mnetize your content.
  Bidvertiser: I have the best experience with Bidvertiser so far. They provide some decent ads to your blog and CPM and CPC is also very good. You can choose from templates like 728x90 leaderboards or 468x60 banners to 320x320, 125x125 and other sizes of ad units and place them anywhere you wish in your blog. They provide good advertises for traffic from India which could easily attract your visitors and you can expect a decent amount of clicks. Hence increasing your revenue. Bidvertiser has a brilliant affiliate program too, using which you can increase you earning by sending affiliate advertisers or publishers to them. It has a minimum payout of $10 via PayPal or $50 via cheque. This less amount of payout is easy to reach in a small amount of time. You can join Bidvertiser directly from this link.
  Infolinks: Infolinks is considered as best Ad solution for in text ads in the world. They converts your keywords to links and shows ads on the links when hovered over it. Infolink has good advertiser base from India and hence they can bring a good revenue to Indian bloggers showing relevant ads in your site. Their CPC and eCPM is very good and holds a very good revenue earning potential. You can easily integrate Infolinks to your site regardless of the platform you are using for blogging whether it be Blogger, Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal or any other. You can try this advertising solution for atleast a month and see whether it is bringing you revenue or not. Infoloink pays you once you earn a minimum of $50 and sends payment via PayPal.
 Chitika: Many people claim Chitika to be the most neighboring competitor to Google Adsense. They provide advertising solutions to a large number of online publishers. But for me, Chitika was not a pleasant experience. At least for Indian visitors. When Chitika does not find a relevant ad to display in your area, it displays some bogus text links to some website or search engine which is not really attractive and you visitor may feel your website to be not attractive. But if you have a large visitor base from countries like US and Canada, you can earn a good money from Chitika. And many Indian publishers also recommend Chitika as they might have earned a decent amount of money from it. Chitika payout is also less. It has a payment threshold of $10 via PayPal or $50 via cheque. You may try Chitika also.
  TribalFusion: Tribal Fusion is another high paying ad network program. This ad network pays high CPM and CPC amount but their requirement is also very high. To get approved to Tribal Fusions ads publishing program, your website must have at least 500,000 visitors per month. If you have a high amount of visitors to your site and very good user base but you are not earning enough money, you can try Tribal Fusion. They consider your sites design, and content when approving your account. Certain contents like drug promotion, sexuality, pornography etc. are not allowed.
  Yahoo Bing Contextual Ads: Yahoo Bing contextual ads is a good contextual advertising platform and is powered by media.net. They provide good CPC and you can earn a decent amount with this platform. But they also have some requirements to be fulfilled before you are approved as a publisher. You can add customized advertising from Yahoo Bing contextual advertising program and boost your revenue. You can go to the website and check for the requirements yourself.
  BySellAds: BySellAds is another popular advertising solution among bloggers and web publishers. Unlike other contextual advertising networks, using BySellAds, you can directly negotiate with the advertisers. You can put an area of your website for advertising and if some advertiser likes to put ads on your place, he may contact you and you can set your price. A good alternative to direct banner advertising.
  Media.net: Media.net is a contextual ad program from Bing network. You can try this ad network to monetize your blog. It also have a good CPC and have good amount of advertisers. You can receive payment after you reach a minimum of $100 ad revenue.
  Clicksor: I tried Clicksor few months back but was not really satisfied. You may try and check for your success. They provide text ads, banner ads and also pop up ads. Getting approval to Clicksor publisher program is easy. Clicksor pays you when you earn a minimum of $50 via Paypal.
  ExitJunction: If you have a great amount of monthly traffic and have a good CTR(Click Through Rate), then you can try ExitJunction as an alternative to Google Adsense. They pay you good CPC. exitJunction Pays out when you have a minimum earning of $50 and you can receive payment via PayPal.
  Kontera: Knotera is very much similar to Infolinks in terms of contextual advertising. They also leads in the field of in-text advertising. You can give a try to this ad network as an alternative to Google Adsense. Kontera sends you payment via PayPal with a $50 minimum payout.


Final Words from Editor:

No ad networks are really huge money makers unless you write great content on your website or blog. And for Indian bloggers, if one ad network is good and making money for me, it may not be the case in your case. it may totally fail to make money for you. Making money from advertising depends upon the content in your blog, the visitors you are getting and the ads you are being served with. So my personal suggestion is do a research using one or two ad network on your blog and if it is not making good money for you, then dump it and try some other. There you may meet your luck. But if no ad network is making money for you then quit blogging and join an academy for a degree in blogging and SEO. I'm just kidding. Keep trying and writing great content and when it will be worthy to make money from your content, you will definitely make money from it.
