Make Money with Advertising - Let Your Website Earn You Extra Money
If you have your own informational web site or blog with a fair amount of traffic, you can use it to make money.
The amount of money you can make is limited only by the quality of information on your site and the amount of
traffic that visits your site. There are many different ways to accomplish this and the best way to make money is
to combine several different methods at the same time. You can make money with advertising on your web site and
there are many different styles of advertising.
Google is Tops
No matter who else will pay you to let them advertise on your website, using Google Adsense is considered by
many affiliate marketers and web masters to be the best and pays good commissions on a regular basis. The program
was developed by the same programmers who created the Google search engine, the Adsense program is a totally hands
free application that places text, images and sometimes video on your website that is targeted specifically to your
audience. Once you have the ads on your site they will stay current to you content and you get paid every time
someone clicks on one of the ads.
This has long been a great way to make money with your website; however you must be very careful what kind of
paid links you use as Google has been dropping page ranking for those who have been selling links on their sites.
You can sell links in one of two ways either directly or by using one of the text link networks such as Text Link
Ads or Linkworth. These networks will help you to find the best advertisers for you site that will pass the Google
ruling and help you to earn a nice steady income from your site.
Selling banner advertising was at one time one of the most profitable ways to make a little extra money with
your website and while some might say this style of making money is dying, if done right it can still make you
money. Most of those who say that it does not work are those who have tried it and failed to make money. However if
you look at Google they make millions with their own form of banner advertising, better known as Adsense. The main
issue here is to make sure that any of the banners you place on your site are related to the content of your
Alternatives to Google Adsense
While Google's Adsense program is without a doubt still the number one pay per click program on the web due to
the vast number of advertisers it is not the only game in town. In fact a good businessman does not put all of his
eggs in one basket, but rather knows that diversification is the only way to maximize your income. There are
literally dozens of different pay per click programs available and all of them have different payout plans and
products, you need to make sure the ones you choose will fit in with you web site's theme and pay you promptly.
There are so many different ways that you can make money online whether you have a web site or blog or not, for
those that do have their own web sites and blogs advertising is definitely a good way to generate extra income
beyond the affiliate marketing that the site may or may not be based around. Research you advertisers carefully to
make sure that they will not adversely affect your Google page ranking and start making money.
