Recommended Money Makers
This is not a post to show you the secrets of millions of $ online.
I really believe that a website should earn enough money to pay for itself.
What do I mean by paying for itself ? I mean hosting, domain renewals and other stuff you pay to keep your website alive.
Let’s say you have a decent amount of visitors that keep reading through your website or blog. Your visitors can earn you the cash you pay for your website.
I am not saying you’ll be a millionare but your website should earn enough money to support itself. Every website is capable of this.
Below are the best programs to help your website earn money online
1. Google Adsense
Probably the best in my opinion, Google AdSense delivers relevant text and image ads that are precisely targeted to your site and your site content. And when you add a Google search box to your site, AdSense delivers relevant text ads that are targeted to the Google search results pages generated by your visitors search request.
BidVertiser is a cost-per-click bidding system that allows you to advertise text ads on sites of your choice. Simply create your text ad, choose the site(s) to advertise on, set the maximum price-per-click you are willing to pay and your ads will instantly start appearing.
WidgetBucks does the heavy lifting by creating contextual ad widgets that your visitors will actually click on and find engaging. They also have a very high click value. Unlike Google AdSense, you only need to make $50 to get paid (AdSense is $100). Payments are expected to arrive in 45 days.
4. Text Link Ads
Make more money by selling text based ads. A normal website usually gets $15 for every link sold per month. If you sell 8 text links every month you could be making $120.
Really easy to use code. Just insert it to your website and the links are automaticly sold and updated.
5. Review Me
ReviewMe is one big marketplace in which advertisers can order sponsored reviews from bloggers. Based on your site’s Alexa ranking, Google PageRank, RSS subscribers, and Technorati ranking, your review prices can be as low as $30 or as high as $2,500. Other than getting paid to blog, bloggers can also make money by writing a Campaign review. It works just like PayPerPost’s marketplace, but the chances you can get and find one is very little.
This is an absolutely brilliant concept and an attrocious implementation of that concept.
Kontera can easily be used on any website. Just insert a little code in every page of your website and it will scan for keywords. In case there are paid keywords on your website Kontera will automaticly link that word to a paid advertisment.
I use all the above and I can say I earn in 1 month enough to pay the costs of my website for 1 year. So that leaves me some extra cash to drink some beer, buy my girlfriend a gift and why not … buy me something to.
