How to Design Content Pages - Including Advertisements on Content Pages
(Page 3 of 4 )
You should include advertisements on every feasible page of your site, but you want to make a special effort to include ads within your content pages. The beauty of the Internet is that anyone can make money, and it's not at all hard to do. If you own a Web site, and especially if you have strong content pages, you even have a good chance of making some sort of money -- and all it takes is advertisements.
Many Web sites will buy space on your site for their ads, and all you have to do is decide where these ads should go. When you sign up for the agreement, you'll provide the advertiser with information about your site. Based upon your answers to these questions, you'll be given copy-and-paste codes to insert in your HTML editor.
The ads that will appear will actually have some relation to the content on your site, since both will be based on the same keywords. This helps the ads to flow more naturally with the site and even increases your chances to make revenue. Earning with ads is all about getting clicks; when users click, you make money.
Including these ads on your content pages is extremely important. Since it's these pages which will be drawing in the most traffic, it's definitely these pages where you want your money-making ads to appear. But your content is the star of the page, so does that mean you're stuck shoving ads off to the side and down at the bottom?
Any empty spaces, even around the perimeter, are always great for ads. However, you can choose to insert ads in much more prominent locations, even within your content, without causing too much distraction in the page.
The key to placing ads is in making them look attractive and fit in naturally with the rest of your site. Most of these ads will be customizable, though you may have to go to the site at which you signed up to make these changes. Pick colors and backgrounds that match your site, but make sure your ads are clearly ads. Again, you don't want to trick visitors or make them think you're trying to "hide" your advertisements.
