Monetise Your Web Site
How to Monetize your Website

  1. Create a website
  2. Load it with Affiliate links, Ads, or Links to Ads
  3. Build Traffic to Your Site
  • Two Common Ways  to Monetise Your Web Site

There are two common ways  to Monetise your web site.

  1. Direct sales. With direct sales your site is devoted to advertising and selling one or more products – whether it be big Blue Gizmos that you ship, or “drop-ship” directly to your readers; an Amazon Shop; or some electronic,  or other Service, or invisible (digital) item, such as an E-Book
  2. Indirect Sales. With Indirect Sales you create a targeted site that attracts readers on the target subject, then you load your information articles with either “text links“, and or surrounding ads, like Affiliate ADs, , or Google Adsense.”  E.G., Create a site about iPhones and put lots of Amazon IPhone affiliate or commission links in it.
  • Promoting your Web Site by Building Traffic

This site is devoted mainly to promoting good SEO practices, and discussion thereon.

  1. The prime method of building traffic is always to provide focused top quality content! The more the better!
  2. Build even more traffic by getting “back-links” that point to your site.
  3. Site Synergy” – Optimizing your site using  efficient linked internal links and the clever use of “Key Words” and Long-tailed Keywords, a process best described as “Keyword Coherence“.
  4. Good SEO – Start here with Google SERP’s and work your way through the other SEO posts listed in the INDEX here.
  • Advertising

Well the simplest method of course is to load your site with Google Adsense ads, or other revenue producing links like the one on the ‘Nav Bar’ on this page. The best method is to link to some product that you own; then you win the whole sale price rather than a small commission!

  • Money-making Links

The next thing you could have a look at is the “affiliate Program” scene. This is pretty easy to do with the simplest method being the ‘text link’ embedded in your post text. This links to some website that sells items (with a commission to YOU!) relevant to your linked ‘keyword’. Example: This HOSTING Link takes you to my Hosting Affiliate link page, and you can find there a really good and reliable web hoster, which I can personally recommend to you.

  • Just Work from Home, Or……

Could you use  extra income each month? Try working from home with something like  SurveyScout But the most accepted way to monetize your web site is to work at providing plenty of quality content, and thereby build good search traffic; and then optimize your site using good SEO practices.  You will be providing a quality product, properly presented, and the traffic and your income will grow accordingly. Have a read of this site for some really good advice from Lis Sowerbutts about earning passive income online.

  4. Monetizing websites becomes important in the web world. By using different strategies there can be many ways out to do that.

  5. Website monetization is not too complicated. It is simply the means you employ to make money from your website or blog. It has already been established that traffic to your website or blog is the critical factor.

  11. I was just reading about using microsites to create a steady income. Basically, those are small websites with about 3 – 5 articles each using consumer KWs (like “buy Gerber baby formula”). You get a handful of those microsites all doing well in search engines (Who are we kidding? Doing well in just Google…), you’re well on your way to a nice monthly cash flow…

  12. Having quality contents does keep a good wave of people to your site – and keeping them. There are a lot of ways to build traffic to your site, but keeping it would be a bigger challenge if you can’t maintain the quality of your posts. Also, nobody wants to see the same post every time they check your site, right?

    I’m using at present a rank tracking software to keep do regular check for all my rankings.Its really helpful and tells me the status of every keyword and i decide the work for that accordingly….

  16. Notice that ways to make money with a website are different from ways to make more money from it. Methods to increase your traffic or click-through rate will help you make more money, but they do not represent a method of making money per se.
    For example, one could suggest that blending AdSense ads with the content is a way to make money from a website. In reality it’s not; it’s just a way to make more money by improving your ad click-through rate. The real monetization method behind it is a PPC ad network.

  17. I really liked your reference to “site synergy”. Creating internal links with some good organization makes using my site much easier for most folks. I’ve heard some discussion about “silo” organizing, where cartegories of blog posts are linked vertically, again this makes the web site use so much easier for folks. Thanks for the great article!

    Monetizing your Website is an essential way of innovating your more effective websites. Actually, I would prefer for Indirect Sales. With Indirect Sales you create a targeted site that attracts readers on the target subject, then you load your information articles with either “text links“, and or surrounding ads, like Affiliate ADs, , or Google Adsense.”

  30. it’s a best way of earning money..it’s a outstanding article…it solve many problem so thanks really thanks alot..

  31. I haven’t been doing this for a long time, but one thing that I’ve learned already is to try one thing at a time. Throwing up a bunch of affiliate links or banners won’t necessarily make you a ton of money.

    The placement of those links and banners is important. Try to make small adjustments to test what works and what doesn’t. This is what I’ve been doing, anyway.

    Thanks for the post. It’s simple, straight to the point and informative.

  32. Trudy says:

    I think there is a bit more involved these days than jus throwing up a bog and posting affiliate ads/adsense etc. You have to build quality content, that your user finds valuable, build up site recognition through SERP rankings and then you can start monetizing with different offers testing which works best etc. Just my .02 cents!

  38. Rhys says:

    @Trudy

    I quite agree with you too. Quality content is always going to be the key, because search engines are constantly refining their algo’s to home in on relevant material.
    Onsite SEO is very relevant too, your readers need to have a good experience when they find you!

    I am still trying to learn more things about promoting one website such as increasing backlinks and link-building. I have tried doing surveys before but I didn’t have anything that will suit and accept international members. And even if there will be, I didn’t have enough surveys to answer compared to US residents. It is a good thing that freelancing suits me like blogging.
