Advertising

Selling advertising on your site is one of the most common forms of monetizing a website (whether a blog, a review site, etc.). Monetization through advertising can be done a few different ways. (1) One might choose to sell ad spots. With this method, you essentially sell a block of pixels on your page to an advertiser. When somebody clicks on that ad, they’re taken to the site linked by your advertiser. (2) An arguably simpler method is to use a service like Google Adsense (there are many such ad-serving services). With Adsense, you simply sign up with Google and place ad code where you would like the ads to run. Google serves up the ads, and when people visit your site and click on the ads, you get paid a certain amount (per click). The nice thing about this is you don’t have to worry about finding advertisers. (3) One might also pay a third-party service to handle the selling of ad blocks on your site. This is a lot like the first method (above), only with the added convenience of outsourcing the work. Of course, such a service costs something! Continue Reading…

When trying to select a good domain (.com, .net., etc.) name, there are a number considerations you’ll want to make.

[Updated: July 2013]

Know Your Purpose

The first thing you need to do is consider the purpose of your website. For example, if you’re creating a family blog, the amount of traffic that Google searches bring to your site (if you allow Google to crawl it at all) matters very little. But if you’re creating a website designed to sell a product or advertising directed toward a certain market, you’re domain name could make a huge difference in success. Continue Reading…

When selecting a web host service for hosting your website, I suggest using the following criteria to evaluate the multitude of hosting options that are out there.

1. Needs

First, does the web host offer services that meet your needs? This seems like an obvious question, but its essential to ask. Some web hosting companies may not offer an affordable plan that can handle the amount of traffic you are seeking or the number of files or photos you plan to host. Some questions to ask in this regard: How many GB of data storage does the service offer? Is there a bandwidth limitation of any kind (will you be charged for extra traffic)? What kind of email accounts are provided (e.g., [email protected]) and how many? What kind of security and backup services are offered? Continue Reading…

Why pay for hosting and your own domain name when you can build a nice website for free? There are at least five huge advantages to buying a domain and paying for an inexpensive hosting plan—I mean less money than dining out once a month!

Added Credibility

First, purchasing your own domain name adds credibility to your website. People generally view personal domains as more professional than free websites with names like yoursite.wordpress.com, etc. The added professionalism and credibility a .com brings to your site can translate into more success in building your audience, getting your information out, and, if you sell products or services, increased revenue. You must build trust with people when they visit your site, and a professional, personal domain name will help you do that. Continue Reading…
