Money-Making Site Additions - Pay-Per-Click Ads
(Page 2 of 4 )
If you understand the concept of Google’s AdSense, you have a good grasp of the concept of pay-per-click ads in general. Those who wish to advertise their sites bid on certain keywords (the thing which makes the Internet go ‘round). Upon winning these keywords, the Web site which owns them can now create pay-per-click ads.
They offer the service. You sign up for it. Here’s what happens: when the keywords that advertiser has bid on (and won) appear on your site, a link will appear on your page which encourages traffic to go directly to the site. If the traffic clicks this link and goes on to the site, the advertiser pays you. The amount is often small (pennies per ad), but it is revenue which can add up. Many, many sites use pay-per-click ads. They add more links and sometimes text to your own site, which in most cases will only help boost your traffic.
Do you offer products or service unique to your own pages? Have you ever thought about doing so? If you have something to offer (an e-book, crafts you make, etc.), you want to make it incredibly easy for others to buy. You can make your site look more professional and allow traffic to easily complete their purchases with a shopping cart feature.
This tool is often what distinguishes sites -- actual e-tail pages versus amateur selling -- and it’s a must-have if you expect to make any serious revenue from your site’s offerings. Adding a shopping cart feature to your site is as easy as finding a Web-based program which allows you to take advantage of theirs. Many major sites (Google and PayPal are two examples) offer a free shopping cart you may use for your pages. Implementing the shopping cart is as simple as copying code into your site’s HTML editor. Shopping cart programs are not only great for the traffic, but for you. By using this feature, you can keep track of what items are being purchased and easily record all your earnings.
