Paid post is one of the most preferred way to make money from blogging. How many paid posts a blog should have? What is the healthy ratio between paid post and unpaid post? Usually, paid post will be related to product review or promoting the advertisers product or services with a nofollow link to the advertiser’s site. Our blog won’t look good if we write too many paid posts.
Having a good ratio between paid post and unpaid post is very important. Also, check on the traffic you receive each day. If your traffic is huge, you can write 2 or 3 posts a day (definitely you will get burned out within few days or weeks). But, if there are less traffic, writing 2 or 3 posts weekly would be better choice. If your blog have a total posts of 100, and out of it paid post consist of 20 posts, the ratio for paid post: unpaid post will be 1:4 (20% are paid post). This is not bad for at all. In my opinion, if your paid post is below 20% is still considered healthy.
Always remember to take care of your visitors and readers. Giving too much paid post a day might encourage them to unsubscribe which is bad for business. Also, if you have more paid post with short cut-off time, and trying to squeeze in your blog with good ratio of paid post (5-10 posts a day) will only make your blog look unprofessional. One day you might have 10 posts and one day with zero posts.
Try to be consistent with number of blog posts for your blog. If you can write 3 posts a day, try to keep at this pace as it may not look like you are struggling to complete the paid post deadline. The lower percentage of paid post is the better quality the blog can get. So, if you manage to keep the percentage of paid post at lowest level, you can demand for higher rate stating that your blog have good quality contents. And try to write paid posts that is related to your blog’s niche.
