The moment your blog page becomes popular, it is easy to be tempted to get obscure money making deals. Your page becomes really hot among advertisers. They are willing to pay money just for you to allow them to advertise on your page.
This is good news especially since you didn’t really think about making money out of your blog. You just want to create something that people will read and to have an avenue to express your thoughts. Now that it has become a lot more popular, your blog becomes really susceptible to attacks.
This is why you must not close any deal no matter how tempting it is unless you are certain it is safe. Compare the offers you get before you sign a contract with a specific advertiser. You might be surprised to receive a huge offer just to find out that it is not necessarily a good deal.
There are also others who would love to hack your site and attack you by pretending to be advertisers. They might seem legit, but you still have to be careful not to encounter them.
Once you realize that you are given a fishy deal, stay away from it right away. It will do nothing to help you succeed as a blogger. It is better not to accept any advertising deal than to be hacked by someone else because of that mistake.
The infographic below shows other ways in which you can be attacked. Be careful in using the blog to avoid these attacks from ever happening.
