If you are interested in monetizing your blog, the first thing you must try to improve is your blog's Google page rank.
The way it works is really complex but in layman terms - the more links you get to your blog from others, the more important your blog is and this will ultimately determine the location of your blog in the SERPs (search engine results pages). In other words, these "incoming links" from other sites are counted as "votes" and more votes mean a higher page rank.
However, it's not that simple as Google will filter out junk links as well as other techniques that do not conform to search engines' guidelines.
