    hello stressers i currently have just a hobby site that i have started. If you use google adsense you can make good money or with affiliate programs like affiliatewindow.com or co.uk i fink dont know which one or commission junctions. with my last website using adsense i was making around $10 per day which you may not think is much but times by 30 is $300 works out just over £150 a month which is still small but it still helps and you dont need alot of traffic for this i was only averaging about 150 visits per day.

    The no1 key to fortune off Adsense is traffic and usually the only way to get it is lots of quality content to bring them in.
    I get around 300 visits per day and am lucky if I get $5 per day! However it is on the increase though (cause I've got another website up and running).

    Does depend on the content of your site though as to what you earn per click from adsense. If you have a site that is in a competitive market then the rate charged to the advertiser by Google will be more because of competition between advertisers. Therefore the payout to adsense publishers is more because of the % split between the website publisher and Google. If your website has a subject area that has little competition then the amount earned per click is less as the advertisers are paying less for the ads, so the % split is less.

    Totally plausible earnings off 150 visitor a day, it all depends on the subject area of the website, and if the site is primarily set up for google adsense etc. There are loads of sites set up that use google adsense almost like the sites main content.

    I have experience in the mobile phone and general finance areas with google and I serve ads on my finance site that pull a premium on the click. This is simply due to the fact that there is lots of competition in this area.

    Getting The Most From Your Website
    I have a personal website that I'm in the process of updating for Christmas that also hosts a fansite for my favourite actor and a couple of other sites for friends (they put a little bit in to help cover the hosting as I have a massive amount of space for a cheap price) and I know there are ways to make money from it - the only thing is, I don't know how.

    I've heard about things like placing banners and getting money for it and affiliate (sp) links and things... how do you use them properly, what are the best sites and is there anything else?

    Thanks

    Try taking a look at somewhere like Amazon, they provide a lot of code that will provide you with content units that display relevant products for each page on your site.

    For example if you've got a filmography on your fan site, then you could provide an Amazon link to the DVD of each film.

    I have a personal website that I have a link to Amazon.I also pay to advertise on an online advertising website (bestof). The problem seems to be getting it seen. In one year I have only had 170 views.:confused: I am trying to start a part time business in Therapy and also selling a product. The problem is the product is attached to a national website with a link to a website of mine for the same product.I cannot change this as it is not mine! What I really need is a way to get people to my personal website THEN link to MY product website.I believe my friend who made my website has put all codes in the headers but they do not appear to be doing their job!

    Without saying the names of the websites the above may sound confusing but if anyone can help me I would be most grateful.

    Sorry for hijacking this post.

    Joyful,

    It sounds to me like you just need to add a new page to your personal website (or even just a paragraph to the homepage) with the relevant links to your product website. Just do a search on HREF and that should give you all the info that you need to make the links.

    Hi Smickan

    We have a thread going on making money from your website so I've merged your thread into it to keep all the information in one place.

    Threads are merged in chronological order so read down from the top for replies.

    If you need more traffic to your website do you need to review the content?

    go through and submit to all the free ones for a start.

    When linking from a directory think about the anchor text i.e. if you sell beds for example, the anchor text could be...

    Compare bed prices - then supporting text that expands on the anchor text link.

    Use the same phrase on the landing page of the link as in your anchor text of your inbound link. Get plenty of inbound links like this and the view of a search engine is that this page/site is important in the field of bed sales and as such you 'may' get better search engine positions for your keywords.

    For search engines to rate your site worthy of anything like a decent position in the search engine results pages you need lots of inbound links. Also, starting reciprocal linking with sites that are on a similar theme will help too.

    I didn't have the URLs handy, so just typed "Put URL 1 here" "put Image 1 here" etc. etc. and generatated the code.

    Once done you (I) can add the URLs later, or easily add more.
