Unfortunately, too many people use Google AdSense on their blogs. 9 times out of 10, they won't even generate enough revenue to get their first paycheck - Google requires you earn $100 before they send you a paycheck. That means you need thousands and thousands of clicks to generate enough revenue to make it a worthwhile venture.

To start breaking out bloggers from the AdSense craze, here is a list of 7 ways you can profit from your blog without using AdSense:

  1. Become an affiliate marketer. Sign up at ClickBank.com for free and find a product to promote on your blog that your audience will be interested in. If you have a large readership, this is a great way to go.

  2. Sell Text Links. Allow people to contact you to put a link on your website to theirs. If you have a PR4 or above website, your links are valuable, and you can get hundreds of dollars monthly to sell them. Just make a note about it in your blog.

  3. Offer your services. Everyone is good at something. Talk about what you can offer people in your blog for a small fee - heck, offer to make some blog postings for someone else.

  4. Sell your own advertising. Create a short ad in your Navbar promoting a service or product. If your blog is popular, people will jump on this offer.

  5. Sell something odd or unique on eBay, and link to it from your blog. This will get buzz going and you'll profit immensely just by being original.

  6. Compile all of your blog postings over the last year and make a PDF file out of it. Sell the PDF using Paypal, and add "Editor's Notes" to your old postings.

  7. Sell your blog. Build up a huge readership, then sell it to a third party. A high traffic blog pays very well.
