(Page 4 of 4 )
But this bidding on keywords and creating links business seems a bit tedious. Isn’t there another way for Web sites to gain through pay-per-click? If creating sponsored links isn’t your thing, you can always try the other side of the business. Why not allow pay-per-click ads to be placed on your own pages?
You don’t need more traffic on your site; you need more money in your pocket. Pay-per-click ads can still benefit you and even your site. If you have a lot of content to offer, you may find pay-per-click programs like Google’s AdSense beneficial. With AdSense, you don’t have to pick out words or create ads because Google does all of that for you.
Here’s how it works: you sign up for Ad Sense (free of charge) and you wait for Google to pay you. It’s just that simple. As long as you’re adding content to your site, you’re adding potential revenue to your pocket. Google will comb through the content on your site, picking out certain words and phrases they’d like to use for their ads. They’ll pick out a few of these words and phrases in every article or blog post you have on your site and turn these keywords into links -- pay-per-click ads. When one of your users actually clicks, you earn.
For each ad, you’ll receive a few pennies, but the more content you add to your site the more potential you have to earn. At the same time, you’re enriching your site with more links and adding a new element of depth to your content. Google also offers reports which shows you how much revenue you’re earning and how much traffic you’re getting to your content.
Should You Use Them?
There are many different ways to benefit from pay-per-click advertising, whether through traffic or financial gain (or even a combination of the two). But should you use pay-per-click ads?
Online marketing is popular, lucrative and possible for anyone. Pay-per-click is only one form of online advertising in a cyber world which offers many opportunities. If you have a flexible marketing budget and you’d love to capture more traffic without really changing your site around too much, pay-per-click may be viable. Remember to weigh the cost of time as well as the potential financial cost to yourself before embarking on any marketing campaign, and never lose sight of what you’re trying to achieve when you advertise.
