Wonderng how to make a website that makes you money? It's fully
possible, but it's not easy.
By far the easiest bit of it is
the building of the website itself. Making money out of it is a whole
new step that needs learning, practicing and fine tuning to work out
what works for your website in the long run.
Make Money Website - Traffic
The first step is the traffic. No traffic means no money as you need a
lot of people to make money on your website. Only a small part of your
total traffic will be interested in your ads, or buying anything you
earn commission for. Most people just read the free information and get
out of your website. So a lot of traffic is essential.
How to get that traffic?
Ninety nine percent of your traffic comes from search engines, and 99%
of that from Google. Google is by far the biggest of all search engines
on Earth. A lot of people even think that Google is the internet.
Instead of putting
an URL into the adress bar of their browser, they go and put it in
I remember the time before Google. There were Alta Vista and others..
now there are no other search engine that is used as much as Google
(Yahoo and two others do come close but still not close enough). How could Google take over with
It has over
the years gained
the popularity and finally grown into a
giant by working extra hard on quality. Quality of the search results
that they give you when you make a web search in their engine.
What does that mean to you as a website owner?
Give Google the quality
and your site
will be on top of the search results!
And this is your single key to the traffic, and finally, the money!
Google does not want a site on the top of their search results that has
empty pages, with a lot of ads or links to other websites.
It wants sites with a lot of long pages with a lot of unique
Give it that information!
Find an interesting subject that you know well, and write a lot of long
with a lot of information about the subject - and Google cannot ignore
you - because that is all it wants.
Note that 'a
lot of' pages

some age to gain proper traffic.
during the first year!
At that stage,
just keep building
more pages and be patient.
That is the core to it all.
there is more to it. Make money website used to be much simpler than it
With new sites popping up every day, the scene is getting more and more
There are also cheaters that in different ways try to lure search
engine robots that crawl all wesbites for quality, and Google has to
work against them. Google has to be in constant change and constant
improvement to remain the giant it is.
That means as a website owner you also have to keep up with constant
changes in trends to keep your traffic. And SBI teaches you
Make Money Website - Monetizing
Now once you have all that traffic, hundreds or thousands of unique
visitors on your site every day... (Yay!)
... you can move on to
the next step
and actually start monetizing that traffic (there is no
to waste time on this step with 10 or even 100 unique daily visitors on
your site - you will make no money).
By having created a
website, you have
created some advertising space on the net.
Some people will contact you and ask if they can advertise on your
site. Some website owners do that, however personally I don't find that
time efficient enough considering they don't want to pay much and I
have to put up with constant renewals which is time consuming (and what
a boring job that is!).
But there are also advertising
programs such as Google AdSense, Yahoo Ads, Chitika
is also in-text advertising such as Infolinks and others.
Those programs are much more time efficient on your make money website
because once you have put
them on, they run by themselves and you don't have to worry about any
renewals which you would with the individual advertisers.
There are also affiliate
that sell books, movies, music, toys and games, posters,
bookings, etc etc, you
can even make affiliates with eBay... All you do is sign up, put the
onto your make money website and earn commission.
Here is one example: AllPosters
You can sell posters made by
your site and earn commission.
Sydney. Poster by AllPosters. Click on
thumbnail to buy.
Note that the copyright of the images used on the posters remain with
the original photographers. You have to make it clear that it is a
poster by AllPosters and that you sell it (which you want to do anyway
to sell more :-).
You are the publisher, your site makes the purchase happen, but you
don't have to worry about shipping any goods - you are the middle man,
and like the ad programs they leave your hands free - they bring in
money without you actively having to do anything after you have
initially set them up.
That said, you will see that people are not lining up with credit cards
in their hand to make purchases on your site. You need a lot of traffic
to sell, and it all comes down to how many pages
you have built on your make money website to get that traffic.
Make Money Website - Summary
All in all - making money on a website is not easy, it is learnable if
you put in
the time and effort, and
if you want
to get it right from
starters, SBI is a great
tool and the only one of its kind.
in mind that
SBI is just that - a tool - YOU still have to make
success to happen.
It is like a course that you learn.
You have to be a good and
And you have to put in the hours.
You also have to be patient - far too many newbies think it is another
It's not - it

Once you are at that
stage you can
think back to it all with a smile,
but you have to get through the initial years first (and how many years
it takes depends on how many hours you put in and how good learner YOU are).
If you have the patience,
willingness to learn, and are prepared for a lot of work for very
little revenue during the first years, go for it!
It will change your life but you have to be dedicated to succeed.
And exactly like Google, you will constantly have to improve to stay in
So it's not a lazy man's
it's continuous work
but the good thing is you can work on your own conditions and own
hours, and it is up to you when and for how long you take time off.
to succeed? Try hard enough." - Malcolm Forbes
