    Five Ways to Monetize Your Website - Shopping Ads

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Shopping ads are yet another excellent option for bloggers looking to monetize their website in a way that ties into the context of what they are writing about. For example, if you write a blog about fashion, posting a shopping ad which details the current bidding information on a vintage dress on eBay will enable you to display an ad that is interesting to you and relevant to the interests of your readers, while also generating revenue for your site.

    Shopping Ads allows bloggers and webmasters to make money by displaying relevant merchant ads on their website. The content of a post doesn't have to be geared towards a specific brand, and it doesn't have to be inclusive of some kind of review. For example, if you love fishing and create a blog entry about a recent fishing trip, ShoppingAds gives you the option of telling them keywords that are relevant to your specific post, for example "fishing gear" or "fishing pole." The site will then use your keywords to find and display merchant ads that match your information, like for example an ad for a specific kind of bait or a new fishing pole model. The keywords you provide will determine how closely related and contextual the merchant ads will be in relevance to your site.

    Shopping Ads requires that you sign up for this service, and they do have a few prerequisites. Your blog or website must first be verified, and then the traffic quality, meaning the number of visitors you have, will be monitored in order to get a better grasp of how popular your site is.

    The site has two different kind of "publishers:" standard and premium. Both have payouts based on traffic geography, though those in the standard category get paid on a cost-per-acquisition-payout.

    Depending on the popularity of your website, you may be asked to become a premium member of the site, meaning you generate revenue with both a cost-per-click and cost-per-acquisition payout. If you have a particularly popular website this can happen in a matter of hours, but for many webmasters and bloggers it will take weeks, if not months, to become a premium publisher bringing in a higher revenue.
