The last thirty days have been better than average with the BlogsVertise blogging network. I was able to rake in about $30 with two sponsored opps which is far more than I have been getting (average of one $7-$9 dollar offer per month).
The other thing I noticed is that for the first time all of my opps have grab bag items which are extra assignments you can collect and do without being directly assigned opps. These assignments can be Pay Per Action items which pay you only if a user clicks through and orders or fills out a form on the other side or sponsored posts. Some are just writing a post about anything and including some backlinks (typically you will only see these type of offers on blogs with a PageRank 3 or higher).
As usual I find most offers from systems come for my Poetry blog which has my highest PageRank of 3 but the lowest Alexa and number of visits compared to all my blogs. Ironic that my blog that barely gets 2,000 visits per month gets the most offers compared to a blog that gets 5x as much traffic.
This only further reinforces that backlinks are a hot item and you can make some decent earnings if you own a few blogs with PR5+ Google rankings. These blogs can net anywhere from $10-$20 per month for each link on a homepage, if you had two blogs with five links each you can rake in about $200 per month from doing nothing but hosting some backlinks on your homepage.
I am still working to improve my own blogs PageRank by focusing on building backlinks which I will do through combinations of guest posting, commenting and such. In the meantime, BlogsVertise is a good option to make some money with sponsored posts and should be added to your arsenal of programs to make money online with your blogs.
