I would like to share with you a money making idea, which enables to monetize your website or blog. A lot of us have websites and want to make some profit out of them. Unfortunately, many of our websites cost us a lot of money, partly because of monthly hosting fees. These can easily amount to over $50-$200 per year. Taking this into account, it is always a good idea to look for ways to monetize your site. This should also be the case even if your website was only created for fun.
Now let us further analyze this opportunity. Website owners can enroll in Google AdSense to enable text, image, and even video advertisements on their sites. Ads are dynamically displayed – Google utilizes its search technology to serve ads based on website content, the user’s geographical location, and other factors. This means that if you have, for example, a Canadian visitor, then ads are going to match his geographical location. Ads are also going to match the topic of your website. It is a Pay Per Click (PPC) type of advertising, which means that you only get paid if a visitor clicks on an ad. They also offer some advertisements which pay per thousand impressions, but the vast majority of income is received through PPC.
Please note that you do not need a blog to take advantage out of this opportunity – you can have a regular website. If you are hosted on Blogger, which is owned by Google, you will have the option to put ads on your blog quite easily, but Blogger will take a share of your income. That is why if you have a regular website, then it is a better idea to have it hosted on your own domain.
