There are lots of factors to determine if you really want to start earning money online. Time is a big key to determining if you want to make a lot of money or just some extra pocket money It takes time to earn a good income.
1st Key - Content That's the answer that literally thousands of people package up with pretty bows and landing pages (a.k.a web page) and sell to you for about eighty bucks too much. There may lie a secret out there to making money online but the one I stand with is CONTENT. That is the key to making money online, easily, affordability, and continuously. CONTENT IS KING Fresh, informative, unique, quality Content, to be more precise, is what search engines adore. It's free, you can write your own content and you don't even have to be an amazing writer (just look at me and I've been earning money online for nearly ten years now).
You can work on it whenever you like. Your content so way what you will (try to keep it legal). Keyword Density - Amount of times a keyword or keyword phrase repeats itself in your content. e.g. You write a fabulous five hundred word review on "Tennis Shoes".
Your topic of choice is Tennis Shoes but this keyword phrase (Tennis Shoes) is only displayed in your title and never again shows up in your content but the keyword phrase "Muddy Terrain" (just an example) repeats itself ten times in your text. What you really want are readers that are looking for "Tennis Shoes" but you're instead receiving "Muddy Terrain" visitors because to the search engine robots the Keyword Phrase that repeats itself the most is, you guessed it: "Muddy Terrain".
Try to aim for a 5% keyword density and all should be alright. This figure is often difficult to achieve without your content sounding very very very very very repetitive. If you want targeted readers you need to create a balance between quality and keyword density. This isn't hard and I can guarantee it gets easier as you go along. Back to our e.g. 5% keyword density on 500 words = 25 repetitions of "Tennis Shoes" is needed. So try to get those into your content right away to ensure that the search engine robots know how to classify your content. (I know that the figures may be off as there are TWO words, its okay to estimate).
There are many ways to make money online but you have to decide if you are willing to spend some money to make more. Here are two good examples. I started out with the survey and offer sites (also known as gpt sites). I made an average of 200 a month using 2 sites. This was only doing the free offers. If you have referrals, you don't have to do that many offers plus you can make more money because most gpt sites have a great referral program like Cashcrate.
So I went out to find some referrals using free methods which worked alright but I decided to buy some business cards, put out fliers, and bought credits on Getref which cost me some money These methods worked really good. I put in a little money and got that back plus more. Another example is home based businesses. Some are free but you will have some that have a one time fee but you will make that back plus more. Here is another great example. I recently joined a program that cost me 2.39.
These sites are dedicated to getting people reading your content. Many also offer Revenue Sharing on ads displayed when a visitor reads your content from their site. This is BY FAR the easiest and simplest way to make money online with your content. The more of these you submit your content to the more you'll earn (generally speaking). Revenue Sharing - Mainly done with contextual ads, for example: Google AdSense, Overture, FAN, etc. In return for your content (to prove to you the power of content) these websites offer you a percentage (usually in the 50% range) of the impressions of the ads shown when a user reads your article. Confused?
Let's say 100 people read your article, that means that the ads will in/surrounding your text will display with your Publisher Id for 50 of those views (based on a 50/50 sharing rate). Which means that, during those 50 impressions, if a visitor clicks on an ad YOU earn money for that click! This may not seem like much but don't forget that these sites receive millions of viewers a month and there is not limit to the amount of directories you can submit your content to. Post to as many of these as possible. Contextual Ads - Remember I told you to keep that keyword density up? Well this is why.
The most common ads, contextual ads, work on keywords. These will reflect ads that are pertinent to the context of your content. Why is this important? Higher paying keyword phrases will yield higher paying clicks. Some companies pay up to 50 dollars A CLICK on certain keyword phrases! If your content has a good keyword density of those 50-dollar-keywords then those ads will be displayed and if someone clicks on that ads you've just earned 50 bucks! Link Backs - Some of the Article Directories don't offer Revenue Sharing but you should still submit to these as well. Why? You may be asking? Simple.
In ALL article directories you can place a link to anywhere you like in your resource box (by anywhere I normally mean a website or page). Why not place a link to one of your submissions on another site? Maybe one that does allow to earn? You still benefit from their mountains of traffic and all it cost you was a couple of minutes filling out some forms.
Earning money online can be easy or hard. Explore your options and get familiar with the money making field on the internet. There are still many scams going on out there and the best thing to do is gather a lot of information from people who have experienced making money online.
