PayPerPost is a relatively new method of advertising for blogs. In essence, you are paid to write an article or post a link in an entry about a particular product or company. Designed to be self-serve style of ad service, you sign up for an account and submit your blog for approval. After you are approved, you can then accept Opportunities.

An advertiser posts an Opportunity, and when your account is approved, you are free to respond to that advertiser's Opportunity. Most often, the advertiser is looking for someone to blog about his product, website, or company in exchange for cash, although the amount and requirements for each Opportunity varies from advertiser to advertiser.

When you post the blog entries relating to the Opportunities chosen, you submit links to those entries to the people at PayPerPost. Their staff reviews the links and if all is well, approves the posts. If your post is denied, they do give you a chance to revise it once before rejecting it.

If your post has been approved, you must leave it up on your site for 30 days. It does not have to be on the front page of your blog, but it does need to remain live. PayPerPost will spot-check over the course of that time and again at the end of 30 days to ensure it is still visible to the public. If your blog entry is still alive, you will get paid.

PayPerPost has a moderate list of other requirements that vary depending on the Opportunity selected. You can view these requirements on its website. You must have a PayPal account in order to receive payment from PayPerPost.
