Today, there are millions of websites/blogs on the net and most of them are targeted to making money from their site. It's called 'monetizing' and below are just some of the simplest ideas to make money from your personal or start-up business web/blog.
Sell Something: It really doesn't matter what you sell, just make sure it's something someone somewhere would want or need. Maybe you can write your own ebook and have it downloaded digitally. Today, you can also add 'shopping carts' which are user friendly and really easy to add to your site.
Become An Affiliate: Sell something for someone else such other products OR put a link on your site to someone else's site for a certain percentage.
Sell Advertising Space: Offer to have someone advertise their wares, services or website for choice space on your website or blog - at a set price.
Give Away Freebies: Just don't make them too cheap. People cannot be fooled for too long. Give them something worthwhile for which to come back.
Whatever route you decide to take, monetizing your own blog, website or several sites for a particular market, just maybe your ticket to a good little side business, and much more.

Three Easy Steps To Promoting Your Website or Blog
Thu, 15 Nov 2012
On the Internet, because you've built a state-of-the-art website or blog, does not necessarily mean people will come to it. You'll need some basic promotion strategies and here are several steps below to better make certain your site stands out among the other sites on the net.
SEO Savvy - Let's begin by saying if your site does not do its share to attract the monstrous crawling eye of a major search engine machine such as Google or Bing, it's almost over for you. Learn what you can about search engine optimization (SEO), and how best to design your content and site around it.
Advertise Your Site - Let people know you are out there when they click on certain other sites. Whether you place an ad on another site or a search engine, you need to advertise one way or the other, perhaps both.
Word-of-Mouth - Gather a small mailing list of family and friends, co-workers and just about anyone else you know who has an email address. Send them a trial email telling them you promise not to harass them again but with a link to your site. Now put a newsletter subscription form on your web page and voila!

If you have a website on the internet then you will want to have enough internet traffic to your site to keep it profitable. It does not matter whether you sell a product, offer a service, or just want people to click on your various ads. Without website promotion you will not have the traffic you need to become successful and to have your website become profitable.
Website promotion can be done in a number of ways. Ask other website owners to include links to your website on their site. Offer to do the same in return. Web page ranking systems look for outside links to your website when they crawl the internet. The more you have the better connected and the better your page rank will be.
You can also use Google Adwords for website promotion. This service allows you to bid and pay for your own ads that will come up when people search for things related to your websites keywords. This can get expensive so be sure to do your research to find the most profitable keywords you can.
