    How to Create a Dating Site - The Extras

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Some online dating sites take interaction to the next level. Instead of leaving everything in the hands of the users, these sites choose to play matchmaker. Searching through profiles, sites will find matches and pair them up - suggesting users to each other in hopes of creating a successful relationship.

    This type of complex word-based matching requires much more than a simple script or handy online service; you’ll need a special program in order to make this concept work. Use a profile-generating program which includes this feature if you’d like to include it on the site.

    Make Some Site Decisions

    If you want to know how to create a dating site, it may be for many philanthropic reasons - after all, you are serving the community by helping people to connect. But there’s another reason for creating a dating site: money. If you build a popular Web site, you always stand the chance of earning income. If you build a popular dating site, you’ll have a few options to help you create that revenue.

    Often, dating sites charge for some of their services. Some sites allow users to browse profiles for free, charging a fee only when traffic wishes to make a connection or start communicating. You’ll need an online registration process which allows users to pick a screen name and password so they can avail themselves of your service. If you plan to charge for your services, you’ll have to include a secure Web form where users can share their private payment information. Look for online shopping cart programs which will offer complete packages to allow you to offer secure payment processing for your traffic.

    If your site starts to pull in large numbers of traffic, you may want to consider several advertising options to help you reap monetary benefit. Include a page on your site which lets advertisers know how they can purchase some of your Web space to spread their message.
