How to use website for generating revenue?

Post by satimis »

Hi all,

I have about 30 websites running on Internet. All of them are for fund and/or for testing.

Several years ago I have been advised that I could generate revenue on them. But I just put their advice aside never taking a serious consideration.

About one week ago I was advised again as a comment on one of my website. Just have had a brief search on Internet in re "how to generate revenue on website" and found dozens of suggestion.

Could any folk on the forum shed me some light how to confine my search. Thanks in advance.

Regards
satimis

If your site(s) have enough traffic, and good enough SEO, to rank high on searches you could sell ad space on the site. There is also links that pay per click.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

In my previous searches most articles suggest "Pay Per Click Advertising"

I'm not familiar on SEO. Just found following thread;

AdSense is Google's advertising platform that lets website owners earn by placing ads on their websites. You sign up and provide info about your website(s) and tell it what sort of ads you want to run (content, size, etc). They then give you some code to add to your website that handles the displaying of ads.

Once your earning hit a certain amount they pay you. I've added it to one of my websites and it brings in a little bit of money, but it certainly hasn't made me rich! :lol:

that was something, that I've tried to do, in the past, on some web sites,
but, the Real Issue, was always, the amount of traffic that was attracted to each web site.

there never was enough, and finally, when I'd reached ~$100USD & could get an pay-out,
that Google changed their Terms of Service, which forced me to use $AUD instead ..
- - because of that change, I've not received those $USD earnt & couldn't transfer them either,
as well as having to start again in $AUD - - so I've given up, on that bad idea.

some time later, both Google accounts were shut down.

In addition to Google's AdSense program, which generates ads that reflect the content of the page on which they are displayed, you could also look at using Affiliate Programs such as those offered by Amazon, Commission Junction, Ebay, etc. Search for Affiliate providers which offer programs directly related to your websites (ie: Booking.com for your travel site). Some of the most successful sites, which use affiliates, are just review sites that provide a detailed review of a product or service and then provide a direct link to the item, held on one of their affiliate sites.

But no matter which route that you decide to use in an attempt at generating revenue through your websites, you will not see a significant return unless you increase the traffic flow to your sites. For that, I would suggest that you increase your presence across social media.

To register go to https://www.google.com/adsense/start/ and click on the blue "Get started" button. It will start asking you questions and you just fill them in (pick just one of your websites to start with, you can add others after you've set up your first one.

If you don't already have a Google account set up then you might want to do that first.

Hi all,

Lot of thanks for your advice.

PPC (Paid Per Click) is common for high traffic websites.

My aid is to widen the envisage of the use of a website not solely limited to providing FREE information.

I know that to do this, the site needs to provide interesting content: about travel, animals, plants, or food. ......
Thanks for your advice.

The difficulty is how to know what people like. The most difficulty is at the beginning.

Probably best to choose a subject that you have an interest in and know lots about.

Write some ransomware for Windows and distribute it via your websites.

How about thinking of something you could sell. Our website's ONLY purpose is to generate $$$$! We do NO adds but do sell a lot of books. The great thing is you can get general reading books for pennies. I know, we are constantly trying to unload cartons of general used books. We only do rare, out of print and special copies or editions. Very few of the books we list are under 10 years old and those would be in some way, 1sts . We've been in the game for 40 years and online since 1995 or 96 so we come up pretty close to the top of searches. Add revenue is hard to make much money with unless you are a really popular site.

Sorry for the bump, just wanted to ask if there is any difference in the revenue if chose to make a website using Wix or similar website builders? My bro has a website and he is doing his personal blog. Recently he started to put ads on his website and he is making a passive income every month and I am really proud of him. I want to make the same as him but I would like to create it with help of website builders and I am not sure if that will be the same in terms of usability.
