How to Make Money Online, Lesson 3: Owning A Website

Hello again and welcome for another quick lesson for making money online. In previous lessons I focused on content and keywords. These lessons where a way to get started making money online and built on each other. My hopes in this series is to get you to the point where you understand content and keywords enough to run a functional website.

Owning your own website is a great way to make money online. You can make money a few ways but a the most popular is Google adsense or affiliate links. Having a website is easy, even building a website is easy. However getting your website noticed is one of the hardest parts. The internet is vast and unless you bring people something they want to read or need then your website is not going to produce any income. Fortunately I have provided you ways to see if your content, keywords and now hopefully your website will catch peoples eye, that being your article marketing from before.

What do you gain out of your own website?

Well it is a page that is your own, where you can write content at will and influence your keywords to be found on the web. Just by writing quality content for your website in one area will give your other areas a boost in the search engines. So if you have already built a fan base from your articles you can now start to pull them to your websites where you can put up Google adsense or your affiliate links. Essentially what this gains you is an audience that will continue to come back to a page that you will be the only one profiting from.

How do you build a website?

There are many companies that you could use to build a website many affiliate marketers recommend Word Press because the search engines have a thing for Word Press sites. This is not that true though, what search engines like is content and the blog format of Word Press. Some other programs are Weebly, Jimdo, Network Solutions and so on, just do a search for more companies and search around for the best deal. If you are computer illiterate then you would want to look into an easy drag and drop web host.

Really though building a website is not hard especially if you use one of the easier solutions, so don't be frightened by this. Picking a good domain name is very important so if you can preferably pick a domain name close to your niche it will pop up easier for those some keywords and rank the highest for those keywords in the search engines. As long as you back it up with quality content, if you do that you will rank number one quickly. If you can pick a .com, .org extension, .com if you are building a general website and .org if you want to build a community or organization on your site to.

What do I need on my website?

The most essential part of a website at least from my point of view is a blog. Blogs are full of content as long as you continue to write content witch intern will draw the search engines in and make them love you. Blogs also give the ability for people to leave comments and interact with you if they have questions. Next if you can swing it is a forum. Forums allow a wide variety of discussion that will be done between other people and limit how much you are in the mix. A nice part about forums is you can set up advertising around other peoples discussion and keywords. Next you need a social bookmarking feature like Share This, what this will do is allow people to bookmark and share your content with friends and draw more people to your site. Just remember all of this is a bust if you do not provide the same content that drew and audience in your articles.

Don't forget to throw in your affiliate links in relevant content and through up some adsense to, this will add to the sites ability to make money. Another handy thing to have is a newsletter or some way to email your audience I use Mail Chimp its free for a number of subscribers and is a good tool to get started. If you build a list for your niche you can email people new products that you believe in when they come up and hopefully make some sales.

In conclusion write good content monitor your keywords and use the social and email tools I mentioned. If you do all of this your site will rise to the top of the engines and get some traffic and then hopefully some sales. If you found this article interesting there are previous lessons that all tie into this lesson. Good luck out there and remember to not give up be positive and good things will happen.
