Everyone these days tries to rank their site’s content higher in Google Search results. There are marketing firms earning a good deal of revenue in relation to the most notorious digital term these days, “SEO”. In this post I will be explaining the different aspects of “On Page SEO”, how to deal with it in WordPress using one of the best free plugins: WordPress SEO by Yoast.
This is a series of tutorials, in the first one we will be configuring and understanding different sections of the WordPress SEO Plugin. Future tutorials in this series will be about different aspects of SEO, how to utilize your site’s Tags & Categories, the concept of rel='canonical', a practical example of an SEO optimized post, and finally some discussion about what else you need to do after having this plugin configured.
This tutorial will help you in optimizing your WordPress sites with the most popular aspects of On Page SEO. Today our goal is to configure this WordPress SEO plugin and to understand the meaning of each step.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic”) search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users.
Why the plugin WordPress SEO By Yoast? I believe it is the best and most complete SEO plugin available for free, though not as easy as AIO SEO, but it comprises of certain vital SEO modules which are the results of the vast experience of Joost de Valk – An elite WordPress developer who developed this plugin.
First of all head over to your WordPress admin panel and install the plugin named WordPress SEO by Yoast (Go to Plugins > Add New > Search for WordPress SEO By Yoast > Install it > Then activate it). After activating the plugin, if you observe the left side menu, you will find a new panel introduced with the name SEO, just like the one in the image below.
When you click it you will be inside the Dashboard of the WordPress SEO plugin. Here you can take a tour or restore the default settings of this plugin in future. More over you will find Tracking and Security check boxes.
It allows the author of the plugin to track issues with the plugin if there are any, in future. If you are concerned about your privacy you should keep it unchecked.
This option, if checked, will disallow your Editors and Authors from redirecting a post to another URL, which is one of the capabilities of the plugin. Checking this will also forbid them from no-indexing your posts. If you don’t trust your Editors and Authors, this option should be checked.
These tools allow you to easily verify your site’s ownership by using the meta code provided by Google and Bing Webmaster tools. This option can also help you in verifying your site for Alexa (if you have their premium subscription). You can see I have filled in the Google Webmaster’s meta code.
Tip: Using Google & Bing Webmaster tools help you in understanding the behavior of your site (how much your site is linked, 404 errors, page speed etc).
After you are done with these configurations you can press the button saying “Save Settings“.
Titles & Metas
Then comes the Titles and Metas panel, this panel helps you in configuring the title, site wide metas, and cleaning up the head. Let’s see what the options are here and how to deal with them:
Force Rewrite Titles
This option means that the WordPress SEO plugin needs to change the title tag of your installed theme, so that it can modify it as per your settings. This option should normally be ticked.
Site Wide Meta Settings
No-index subpages of archives: It should be checked as it helps your homepage to retain its importance, your Homepage is one of the most important parts of your blog.
Use meta keywords tag: I prefer to check it, as the Search Engines like Yahoo and Bing are known to give some importance to these meta keywords. These are the keywords around which your article is based.
Add noodp meta robots tag sitewide and Add noydir meta robots tag sitewide are used if your site is present in DMOZ or Yahoo Directory, sometimes Google prefers the description of your site from these directories, enabling these tags can help you remove this kind of error.
Clean Up the <head>
There is a theory that Google prefers a clean head. Most of the SEO Analysts suggest to keep your site’s head portion clean, the top most links which the Google bot reads get more importance. I don’t prefer hiding these links, as in RSD, WLW Manifest Links and shortlinks of your WordPress posts are helpful in a way like if you use Microsoft Live Editor to Publish your posts then hiding these links is not preferred. If you plan to clean up the head of your blog anyway, I would recommend you check the first three options and leave the RSS links option unchecked. Why? Because RSS links are read by certain plugins and can get you more subscribers. Some people say these RSS links are valuable assets for your blog. Enough said!
Done with Title and Metas? Press “Save Settings”
Click the Home tab inside the plugin and you will land on the page where all the settings of your Homepage can be found. These settings are kind of ‘set and forget’ settings. You can see the character limits in the image below, fill according to your domain name and niche.
Title: 70 Characters, can be Domain Name with Slogan. e.g. TheBookShop.com – Buy Books at Cheapest Rates
Description: 160 characters in which you will use your focused keyword once. e.g. If your site is for a book shop, you can include the term Buy Books here.
Meta keywords: Don’t spam this box, just put 5 to 6 keywords here, and you should put long tail keywords here, e.g. Download Books at Cheap Rates, Cheap priced Books Downloads etc.
After that, go to your profile page from the top right corner of the Admin Bar, fill in the Google+ URL of your profile and select your name from the users list at the Home Tab of the WordPress SEO plugin, so that your thumbnail is displayed with the exact domain name in Google’s Search. It is due to the rel="author" attribute that WordPress SEO adds this to the header with your profile link. This helps you get a good deal of exposure and more clicks. Make a Google+ page for your blog and add the URL in the box at the end, so that rel="publisher" can be added. These two rel attributes are important for your On Page SEO, and help your site rank better.
After all these settings you need to click “Save Settings”.
Then click the Post Types tab where you will generically configure the On Page SEO elements for Posts, Pages and Media files.
The Help tab provides the details about these generic tags we are using here, but I recommend you do it the way it is done in the image below. Why? After experimenting for about three to five years, I have found these settings best. Of course, we are not going to no-index the posts, but if you tick the Meta Robots No-index then search engines won’t index your posts. Either you check the date snippet or not, if your theme supports the date tag then Google will include it in its search results. I find the date factor very important in On Page SEO, though you can find contrary suggestions about this factor from a lot of people.
%%title%% Replaced with the title of the post/page.
%%focuskw%% Replaced with the post’s focus keyword.
%%tag%% Replaced with the current tag/tags.
%%category%% Replaced with the post categories (comma-separated).
%%excerpt%% Replaced with the post/page excerpt (or auto-generated if it does not exist).
Set the pages’ parameters as mentioned in the following image:
%%sitename%% The site’s name
If you want to index media files separately then you can uncheck the checked box against Meta Robots, and set it like the below image:
The WordPress SEO plugin allows you to configure the On Page SEO parameters for taxonomies like Categories, Tags, Formats and any Custom Taxonomies, if you have them.
Categories VS Tags
Normally Categories are used to categorize the content into organized form, and tags are used to put more aliases for a single post. Right now our focus is towards the configuration of WordPress SEO by Yoast, so we will skip this discussion, but you will read some details about this in next tutorial of the series.
What to Do?
I don’t index both of them so that Search Engines should give most importance to my main article’s titles instead of Tags or their Categories. Here are the settings, if you see I have checked Meta Robots Nofollow so that the Google bot never indexes them.
Same goes for formats, I have checked no-index for them, you can index them if you want.
I recommend you no-index as shown below, you should disable them to save yourself from a Content Duplication penalty.
PayPal is nearly as universal as Google or Amazon. This online bank has developed a following for its secure and easy transactions online. However, PayPal also offers a savings and checking account of sorts. You can store money in the bank and with the ATM/debit card you can even earn rewards redeemable with PayPal accounts as you use the card. However, it is a very nontraditional checking account because it uses a checking card, but not checks. Also, PayPal is not a member FDIC, which means that the money you deposit in the account is not backed by the government. Many other online banking services are insured by the government so that if it fails, your deposits are protected up to $250,000.
When selecting an online banking service, PayPal is often the most recognizable name. Its accounts are accepted by virtually every online vendor and it is nearly synonymous with online shopping. When you are setting up an account with PayPal, you do not have to worry about any monthly minimums or deposits. There are no fees associated with the accounts, which makes it very simple to manage.
Just like other, more traditional banks, you can deposit funds in a variety of ways. Online transfers, checking information, money orders and direct deposits are all ways to get money into this online banking service.
After you sign up for the checking account, you will be able to request an ATM/debit card. This card functions much like other similar cards that are issued from other traditional banks. However, with the PayPal account, you can use your purchases to earn rewards redeemable with your online banking account. The rewards vary and can be adjusted depending on the account.
This internet-only bank does not offer any checks with their checking account. The debit and ATM card functions similar to other similar online banking services’ checking accounts, but the lack of checks could be distracting to some.
Depositing money and using a PayPal account as a place to store money is very simple. However, there are no interest-gaining options or any money-market investment options. You cannot diversify your investments because there are no advanced savings options. However, if you are looking for a place to store funds that can be used at almost any online shopping location quickly and easily, PayPal is one of the best and most attractive online banking services.
There’s no doubt that PayPal has one of the best reputations when it comes to secure online transactions. However, when you are looking to do any large investments or deposit large amounts of money, PayPal may not be the best choice. Most online banking services are insured through the federal government so that deposits up to $250,000 are protected. PayPal does not have that insurance and protection.
When you need customer assistance from PayPal, you can use a toll-free telephone number or email address. When we had questions and concerns, we were able to find quick answers from the customer service.

Namecheap Coupon – buythedomain
If you wish to read our review about Namecheap Hosting or as a Domain Registrar you can do so here: Namecheap Review.
We have been using Namecheap for the last six year for our domain registration, and have found their user interface and range of services to be by far the best we have seen. We have recently looked into their web hosting services with surprising results. They are actually pretty good. Before we get onto the review, there are a few things we wanted to tell you about Namecheap. They have been around for around 16 years (since 2000). They claim to have nearly 1 million users, managing over 3 million domain names, and have repeatedly won awards and surveys for their domain registration services. Not only that, they are one of the cheapest around too. What’s more, you can easily pick up a Namecheap Coupon to bring the cost down even further.
Namecheap Hosting Plans
Namecheap offers three main shared hosting plans; Value, Professional and Ultimate.
Value Shared Hosting
Their value hosting has the following main specifications:
25 GB disk space
5 hosted domains
cPanel control panel
FREE email hosting
Professional Shared Hosting
100 GB disk space
26 hosted domains
cPanel control panel
FREE email hosting
Ultimate Shared Hosting
Unlimited disk space
Unlimited hosted domains
cPanel control panel
FREE email hosting
All the different hosting plans use the same hardware, so feel free to start off with the Value plan and upgrade as and when required. For most people with just a couple of sites, the Value plan should more than suffice.
Shared Hosting Features
Namecheap comes with all the main features that you might expect from a good quality web hosting provider.
When looking for a host, having cPanel is one of our must haves. Not only is it an easy to use interface, but many hosts offer free cPanel to cPanel transfers for your site. This makes moving from one host to another super easy. Some hosting providers use their own interface to make it more difficult for you to move, and in some cases (GoDaddy) this has proven extremely successful. The wiser among us however, will always choose a host that uses cPanel.
This is another somewhat standard feature among web hosts these days, but then you will be surprised that a few hosts still don’t use it. It makes installing websites such as WordPress super easy, as well as over a 100 other popular applications. Highly recommended.
Now, every host you talk to will boast of high uptimes, and the latest technology hardware. For many this is just bluster, because if you dig a little deeper there are many places that will indicate whether hosts are having problems. Many of the cheaper hosts for example, will oversell their servers and will be subject to many micro-downtimes that can actually be extremely annoying. We are pleased to report though, that Namecheap has an incredibly good reputation in this regard, so you can be sure that their typical server (8 x Xeon CPUs, 24GB DDR3 ECC RAM and WD RAID 10 HDDs) is reliable. One of the reasons for their incredibly uptime is also their Cloud Technology (see below).
Like all good hosts, they use a customized version of software such as Linux to increase stability and add other functionality. In Namecheap’s case, they use a custom version of the Cloud Linux operating system, which reduces costs associated with cloud hosting as well as providing an optimized performance and uptime. Awesome.
Now we have to be a bit honest here. Our experience with the speed of their support is not as good as other hosts, but the quality of the support when the ticket is responded to is pretty good. If you have a small simple query we highly recommend using their livechat, as this will significantly speed up the resolution of any issues.
Whilst we think there are some more innovative, and better hosting providers out there, we actually think Namecheap is a pretty good host, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality hosting provider.
Social Media can be a powerful way to increase brand awareness, monitor your business reputation and offer better services. Nevertheless, using Social Media as part of your marketing strategy is not as simple as many people think. In order to have better control and better results with your Social Media campaign, build a flow chart starting with the following steps:
1. Research – Which Social Media are good for you
After conducting the research you must be able to answer at least the following questions:
Which Social Media networks can be used to reach my target audience?
One of the most important steps is to choose the right Social Media networks in order to successfully reach your target audience. Some social media are more business oriented (LinkedIn, Xing) while some others are great tools for finding news and articles (Twitter) etc. Your choice depends on your industry, the nature of your product/service, your language, the characteristics of your target audience etc.
Even if Social Media are considered a cost effective solution for lots of businesses, have in mind that sometimes traditional channels can be much more effective especially in B2B cases.
How do I use each Social Media?
Here are some key issues you should know before investing in Social Media websites:
Terms and Conditions
What are the risks of getting involved in such networks?
The main risk in Social Media is that you can`t control what people say. In order to be able to manage a future crisis you must be flexible, monitor what users say about your company, locate potential issues and be responsive.
Tip: Negative comments or mentions with strong language and no arguments are not always worth answering.
A secondary but also important risk in Social Media is investing too much time without having a clear strategy or goals. Remember that you should not focus all your strengths on Social Media and that there is not a single formula of success for all businesses/industries. Make sure you adopt the optimization philosophy according to the feedback and the results (experiment – measure – improve).
2. Define communication objectives
In social Media you have the option to speak and/or to listen. It is your decision whether to ignore what people say or to consider it a useful feedback and try to improve. By using Social Media you can add value to your services by understanding the needs of your customers. Just make sure you do it professionally as it is vital to define your objectives and align them to your corporate communication strategy. Generally a change of customer’s opinion for a brand can be achieved only if a campaign has specific and clear objectives.
Tip: If your objectives target only on increasing website visits (traffic) then Social Media are not recommended. Instead, try internet advertising options such as pay per click, display ads etc.
3. Social Media Planning & Execution
A successful Social Media campaign, like in all communication campaigns, requires an action plan. So open an excel sheet, list the channels and schedule the various tasks (i.e. monitoring, replying, posting, community building etc), add corporate announcements, events and seasonal “material”. Remember that you should have clear objectives and predefined available resources for this campaign.
4. Community Development
Social Media community development is the process to build your global network within social media. This network can be a source of information related to your customers needs or to your brand reputation.
Follow people of common interests on twitter and start new discussions in groups on Social Networks like LinkedIn or Xing. Share content that your target audience will it find useful. Don’t try to reach millions of people in one day. After all community building is a long term process.
5. Cross Linking to other Social Media
Driving traffic through various social media embassies of your business can be an effective way to promote your business. This is because in this way you take advantage of the different characteristics that are supported in the various Social Media. So when you build accounts or when you post messages on Social Media don’t forget to cross link them.
6. Measuring Social Media
Measuring the effectiveness of a Social Media campaign depends on the objectives you have set. The various metrics that Social Media networks provide can be useful way to understand the reaction of the users on the messages that they receive.

Why should I click here?
Which are the benefits for me?
Promoting the message
The path a message follows to reach the right audience using Google Adwords, starts with a carefully selected and fine-tuned keyword list.
Write down keyword lists with specified theme, use related phrases, synonyms, misspellings etc.
Use different keyword matching options
Define negative keywords to filter the traffic and reduce the campaign cost
Enable product extensions
Enable various devices targeting
Target both search and content network
Let`s say the message has reached the audience. Now the action begins.
During this stage you need to forget the term “audience” and focus to the client. The user’s experience in online business is a high priority. Pay attention to the landing page. The design should emphasise to user’s experience as a matter of usability and easy navigation that will drive to conversions and not a good impression for the design aesthetics
Customers are seeking profitable solutions to their needs, fast simple and easy. So all you have to do when a user is clicking on your ad is to make the conversion process as easy as possible.
Tips for Success
Use customized landing pages with easy navigation
Remove possible obstacles (i.e. too many clicks or too many forms to complete)
Make the user feel safe to interact
Just make it simple
Frequently monitor the campaign performance and adjust the bidding settings.
Eliminate the keywords that do not perform.
Try alternative ad text and/or different call to action.
Experiment with the landing page and monitor the performance using different layouts
There is more to making money from your blog and to blog advertising success than publishing a few Google AdSense ads and calling it a day. Blog advertising success actually takes time, testing, and effort to find the right recipe that works for your blog audience and generates the highest income for you. Use the 10 tricks below to set up your blog so it can make the most money possible through advertising.Continue reading
Making money online is not as difficult as some people may think, but making a substantial ongoing income online is actually pretty difficult. This is especially true if you are just starting out and aren’t sure what the best way to get started is. Keep in mind that most methods for making an online income will take a bit of time and/or money to gain traction. Also, you should be aware that there really are no quick and easy shortcuts to making money on the internet. It may take anywhere from a few months to a year before you begin to see substantial results.
While there are a number of different ways to make money online including article marketing, social media marketing, PPC (Pay per Click), etc, there are two main ways that I recommend to get started making money online:
1. Make Money With Affiliate Marketing: This means choosing the best affiliate programs or offers with high conversion rates. This would include joining the affiliate programs of popular sites like eBay, Amazon, Clickbank and Google Adsense.
2. Make Money With PTC (Paid To Click) Sites: A PTC site is a website that pays its members for the ads they click and view, on a daily basis. Popular and trusted PTC sites include ADFLY, LINKBUCKS, Neobux, Clixsense and GetBuxToday.
I have written a fairly comprehensive guide to earning money with PTC Sites and you can download it for free here.
With either of these methods there are only three things that you need to get started making money: A domain name, a web hosting account and an auto responder.
To get started the first thing that I would recommend is to register a domain name. I personally use NameCheap. I would suggest using a registrar that is separate from your hosting company. The reason that I recommend keeping your hosting and domain registrar separate is so that you can switch to a new hosting company easily if you ever find a better deal on a hosting package.
Next, you will want to go to Hostgator and get a basic web hosting account. You will want to get a plan that will allow you to have an unlimited number of domains, and this should cost you around $5.00 per month. I use WordPress as the content management system for all of my sites, and if you purchase your hosting account through Hostgator, it’s really easy to set up. Just go to the “Fantastico” link on your control panel and create a new WordPress install
If you are working on a really tight budget, you can get started by using a site like Weebly to create a website for free. As soon as you can afford it however I would recommend paying the few extra dollars each month for hosting and you can have full control of your site with no banners or ads.
What exactly is an autoresponder? Basically, it is a program that enables you to automatically send emails to people (your leads). Now an autoresponder will not compose emails for you and it doesn’t involve spam or sending unsolicited email. What it will do is allow you to set up a sequence of pre-written emails that are sent out to the prospects in your database at regular, frequent intervals.
The importance of having a reliable autoresponder cannot be underestimated. As you go along in your internet marketing career, you will hear all of the internet marketing gurus tell you that the money is in the list. There is a good reason for this. Online marketing specialists know this to be a fact: The more prospects (leads) that you have on your mailing list that are interested in your products or services, the more sales you will make.
What could be better than having your own cool new website? Lot of ways to make money with a blog or a website. If you are wondering how you are going to monetize your site, then you’ve come to the right place. Well, how about if it helped to pay for itself? The way for your site to generate income is to allow companies to place small advertisements on your pages which try to entice your visitors to go to their website next.
You begin by signing up on an advertising agent’s website to become what’s called an affiliate. This is a very simple process and it is free so don’t let the sign up scare you off (but as always exercise caution with your personal information). There are many programs out there but Google’s AdSense is one of the best and most popular. Once you are a member you will be given simple instructions on how to insert the ads or links into your web pages. And that’s pretty much it.
So what kinds of things can you expect to see advertised on your website and making money? Well, Google’s famous AdSense program uses a very clever program to look through your website to determine what it’s about, and then displays only ads which are most likely to be of interest to your visitors. Basically all the hard work is done for you. Then, when a visitor to your website finds the ad interesting and clicks on it, your account is credited with a few cents. This is called pay-per-click advertising and has become extremely popular on the internet. Although a few cents per click may not seem like a lot, try to imagine how many times these ads might get clicked on during a month… 100…1000…10000…more? What ever the number is, it’s bound to help you cover the cost of your website.
You can sell advertising space in the form of banner adverts to businesses and people. It isn’t quite that simple though, you get paid differently by different advertisers.
CPM – Pay Per Impression Advertising
Your website receives revenue as and when you generate impressions for the sponsor. This rewards a website for every thousand impressions that it generates. You may get paid anywhere between $1~$7 per thousand impressions depending on your sponsor’s industry. Most well known CPM advertising network is BuySellAds.
PPC – Pay Per Click Advertising
You make pennies every time someone clicks on a banner or link. It generally works out to a higher amount per click when compared to CPM but it might depend on your niche.
For those of you who use WordPress as a platform to run their websites, you can try out BuySellAds. If you’d like a free plugin, check out Advanced Ads.
Selling advertisements via contextual ad networks is best when you have a site that covers a large spectrum of subjects. If your site targets specific niche or keywords, you’ll find that Affiliate Marketing is probably a better money making strategy for your site.
Also known as CPA or Cost Per Action, Affiliate Marketing is an extremely profitable way to generate revenue for your website. The section of Affiliate Marketing goes into a lot of detail, rightly employed it can make your site very profitable relative to running CPM or PPC advertisements. It’s also a lot tougher to utilize, so let’s talk about affiliate marketing.
As the name might suggest your website acts as an affiliate for someone else’s product or service.
How does affiliate marketing work ?
You promote a certain product on your site, your visitor identifies the product as an effective solution to his or her necessities and purchases the product. You get a predetermined percentage or fixed commission for each purchase made by visitor or reader who passes by your site to discover the product or service and then makes a purchase on the affiliate sponsor’s website. This works because the company that sponsors the affiliate program finds a new customer, your visitor found a new product and you get a commission. All three parties involved end up with something they might not have had otherwise. You works as a middleman between buyer and seller and get paid for doing so.
Affiliate marketing campaigns produce new leads for the sponsor and generate commissions for your site effectively only when the niche of the campaign is close to your site’s niche. The further the distance between your niche and the campaign’s niche, the less effective the affiliate marketing efforts.
Tip #1: Keep the niche of any affiliate campaign as close to your site niche as possible. Ad networks ensure that the right adverts are displayed on your site with PPC & CPM, but with CPA you need to find the right affiliate to endorse.
Write honest content/reviews, never go over the top and recommend a product or service you have not used. It is okay to verify the features of a product and write a dispassionate review. To give a positive review for any product, use it first or read extensively about the product, reviews provided by domain authoritarians who have a history of being impartial and fair in their assessments (Your eventual aim should be to make your site in their image). And be informative, add value and try to help your readers find the best products. If you’ve used the product better still, be insightful.
Tip #2: Be honest & informative. And if you have used the product be insightful. Else you stand to lose your reader’s trust and you lose revenue.
Write about alternate choices. Never recommend a single product, always offer choice to the reader. Your site’s business is to inform your readers. Bestwpthemes writes about 20~50 themes in our collection roundups, it is to help provide choice and that’s for free themes. The choices provided should cover as wide a net as possible, when you expect your reader pay for a product.
Tip #3: Present reader with alternate choices. Doesn’t mean you can not recommend the best choices in your opinion but try to include as many alternates for your reader as possible.
Tip #4: A small piece of a bigger pie is better than, well you know how it goes!
Disclose affiliate income, always inform your reader that you receive a commission for products that you recommend. Let your reader know that, this is how your site generates income to pay for writers, website development and hosting. I am sure they’ll understand.
Tip #5: Disclose affiliate marketing on your site on pages where there are affiliate links.
Do not push products on your readers. Stop cramming your content with multiple links, try to keep it to a minimum. It might turn off someone, allow for the possibility that your reader is skeptical about someone who profits from their suggestions. Never allow anyone to ever feel that you are merely trying to sell them things.
Always attempt to connect with your audience by being informative, insightful and very importantly helpful. After you’ve described the problem that you’re attempting to solve which should be one that your readers can relate to, only then should you proceed to promote a product as a possible solution. I think subtlety is underrated.
Remember that affiliate marketing can help make a great deal of money for you, if you target the right niche. Not only should your site be relatable to that niche but your niche should have sufficient traffic from the specific niche. Affiliate marketing tends to be very targeted, it will not work if there is no money in that market to begin with.
Before you decide to run an affiliate marketing campaign on your site, try reading the about the affiliate programs offered by the ten biggest players in your industry. Look at their customer numbers and their commission percentages. See if the numbers make sense and whether affiliate marketing is right for your site’s niche.
MyThemeShop offers 70% commission on any new customer you bring to them. We use their affiliate program on our website and highly recommend it.
Check out for how long the tracking is valid when you bring new traffic to these sites under affiliate programs. This also known as the tracking cookie period. Most reasonable affiliates have periods of 60 days or greater. After that any sale made as a result of traffic your site brought them, doesn’t earn you a commission.
My examples may have been specific to the WordPress niche, because I am familiar with the WordPress. The commissions vary from sector to sector as the size of the deals vary. Look at all affiliate programs and identify the likelihood that they will generate a steady cash flow which is sustainable and builds over time. And test a few of them out before you settle on one or two of them.
NameCheap and Bluehost has a great affiliate program for many reasons, rather than boring you with “Why?”. I’d like to talk about Pat Flynn who made $424,800 which accounts for about 40% of his site’s revenue in 2014 via BlueHost’s affiliate program and about $670,000 from all affiliate programs. Now remember his website has multiple sources of income and apart from his BlueHost affiliate program all his other income sources are at best $50,000 and not more. I’d recommend that you have a look at Pat’s site and his income statements, you’ll notice that despite the diversity in his income sources he makes about 65% of his income via affiliate programs. This should quite clearly illustrate the power of affiliate marketing.
A Few Things About Advertising – PPC, CPM and CPA
Tip #6: Banner adverts are not really your best option, their click through rates are rather low in comparison to in-content links. But if you aren’t using all the space on your website, then perhaps you could add banner advertisements to add to your revenue.
Tip #7: Cut out the middleman, many ad networks take out a chunk of your revenue. Remember direct deals are always better than going through an intermediary. It’s also a lot harder.
Tip #8: Never crowd your content out with too many advertisements banners or in text links.
Tip #9:Use a heat map plugin and try to figure out which parts of your website attract the most attention. Place your adverts appropriately.
Tip #10: While plain banner adverts (Not based on PPC, CPM & CPA) pay on a monthly or bi-monthly basis and offer some security of income, even if your traffic doubles or triples, you still get paid the same. PPC, CPM & CPA based advertising on the other pay based on how well your site does and how well it converts traffic into sales/impressions.
Sell Your Product/Service
Creating a website to generate revenue is primarily based on projecting yourself and the people who post content on your site as domain experts. Sometimes it is very easy to prove that you know your stuff, example would be a WordPress theme developer and writer. Aigars writes a great deal about themes and he gets a lot of interaction because he is a pretty awesome web developer.
Projecting yourself as a domain expert is crucial as it is what your site relies on to generate revenue. It is aided by creating products in that particular niche or in the alternative offering services in the same niche or even a related niche.
Of course this works both ways web developer turns writer and the otherway around, the same is applicable to any niche.
We publish a great deal of content about WordPress – Caching plugins, Themes, Hosting and so forth. You can read more about it here. It helps boost credibility and therefore helps with product sales.
Tip #11: Generating good and most importantly useful content will help project authority and domain expertise and bring more sales.
This is not limited to digital products like themes, it can be extended to almost any industry for which there is sufficient interest on the internet. Companies of any niche or sector can sell their own products via the internet.
Tip #12: Selling stuff services/products and generating good content on the same industry/niche/sector brings in more visitors and as a result more prospective customers to your site.
You may have noticed by now selling products and generating useful content go hand in hand. One aids the other and vice versa.
Whilst selling your own products and services creating an affiliate program will help sell your product better. You will obtain a greater reach by sharing a percentage of your product’s price for sale that may have gone unrealized otherwise.
Some people may be reluctant to share their profits, but what they fail to realize is that the profits you share would not have been realized at all had there not been an incentive for your affiliate to share and recommend your products.
Once you find someone to host your website (ie. store your website files on their server), you need to come up with a domain name. This is that familiar name which always follows the www in a website address. The best domain names are short, descriptive, and to the point so that they are easy for your visitors to remember.Some good domain name examples are:
yahoo.com, google.com, ucla.edu and cntower.ca. The ending after the dot simply helps to describe the type of site you have (commercial, educational, government, organization, etc) or the country of origin (Canada). When picking your new domain name try to avoid using odd short forms, uncommon acronyms, and words which are often misspelled. Once you have settled on a domain name which will become your website’s address, then it is time to check if that name is still available or if someone else is already using it. Remember that your website address must be unique. No two websites can have the same domain name or address. So your next step is the domain name search. There are many companies on the internet which can do this for you (even for free) and some are listed at the bottom of this page. If your chosen domain name is available then you are in
luck and can proceed with domain name registration. Often these companies will search, register, and even host your website.
Below are advertisements and links to websites which
specialize in domain name searching and registration.
Once upon a time creating a website is huge task because you should know lot of thinks like webmaster skill, web designing and HTML code etc… Nowadays its so simple like using a facebook!! The origin of the internet can be traced back to educational institutions like MIT, UCLA or UC, so it should come as no surprise just how many educational websites are currently in existence. What’s even more impressive is that unlike the enormous budgets of commercial institutions, most educational websites exist on minimal budgets and are created and maintained with time donated by teachers and students.
The number of educational websites is increasing very quickly, so if you have been thinking about starting your school, classroom, or personal website then you are not alone. Here is a short and simple guide to the concepts you should know before making a website. We hope you find the following useful.
You really have two options when it comes to hosting provider types recommended for WordPress newbies.
Managed WordPress Hosting
I do not recommend anything other than a shared hosting plan for first time webmasters. All other forms of hosting that you may have heard of like Virtual Private Hosting (requires reasonable technical know how), managed WordPress hosting (too costly) might not be the right choice for your first website. As your knowledge and business grows you might consider VPS or fully managed WordPress hosting but let’s leave that for another post.
Shared hosting is the way to go and later we can talk about upgrading your host. We’ve recommended two shared hosting services and have also added elaborate installation processes for WordPress with both of them. Both hosting providers offers domain registration and website hosting and that’s exactly what we need to create an awesome website.
Just like every document or photo you have in your computer is stored as an electronic file on your disk drive, so will be the pages of your website. The difference is that your website will not be on your computer, but on a large and powerful computer permanently connected to the internet and made specifically for that purpose. This type of a computer is called a ‘server’. So one of the first things you
must decide is: who’s server will be ‘hosting’ your website.
Here you have two main choices which differ in cost and flexibility. You probably noticed that some website names are very simple such as “www.myschool.com” and some might have a longer address such as “www.yahoo.com/school/newyork/k-12/myschool.com”. The difference is that in the first example the school owns their own ‘domain’, where as in the second case the school uses some of the server space available in the “yahoo” domain (that’s why the address starts with “www.yahoo.com”) . Think of it like owning your own city block (your own domain) or renting an apartment in a tall building (part of someone else’s domain).
Obviously being part of someone else’s domain has some restriction such as amount of space available for your website, number of email addresses available, number of visitors you can have, and of course the choice of your website address. The main advantage however used to be the low cost. Many internet service providers (the people that connect you to the internet and give you an email address) will often let you use some of their own server space to host a small website for free. On the other hand, having your own domain means that you have significantly more freedom and resources available to your organization. The cost of having your own domain used to be relatively high, but with the continuing growth of the internet and the progress of the associated technology, the cost of owning your own domain has dropped significantly and is now less than the cost of owning your own cell phone. Furthermore, there are now some very easy ways to have the website pay for itself (more on that in part 4). When looking for a website (or domain) hosting company, you need to have an idea of how much space you will require on their server. Typical websites containing text and some pictures require a moderate amount of space, perhaps 50MB (50 mega bytes). So a school website with 20 independent classroom sites would require only about 1000MB=1GB (1 giga byte). What requires a lot more server space are websites which contain video clips or audio files. Our advice is to start small and if your site(s) begin running out of server space then your hosting company will probably notify you, and you can simply increase your server allowance for a few extra dollars per month.
Below are some ads from different web hosting services available on the internet. Some will not only host your site but also offer to create your website for free, or at least give you the software which will allow you to do it yourself. If you pick the right hosting service they will walk you through the rest of the points we are about to describe.
Before the conceptualization of residual income, people would create blogs only to express their thoughts, ideas, opinions, and everything else under the sun and to share those with friends, colleagues, and random readers from around the world who log on to the internet.
Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.- Norman Vincent Peale
Blogs were not thought of as a marketing tool to promote a business’s products and services until marketers realized that blogs that receive a lot of traffic can actually convert the views into actual sales. Aside from this, by having an effective advertising network like Google Adsense incorporated into one’s blog, you can already be able to earn money online by doing what you love: blogging. Google Adsense is one of the most popular ways that people adopt when making money from blogging and believe it or not, it is actually quite easy to have Google ads displayed in one’s blog. And if your blog is a popular one that brings in a lot of traffic, you can earn a lot of money from it over time.But that’s the problem there; most people who want to earn money by putting Google ads on their blog don’t really know how to do so. They create accounts, set up their blog, but stop there because that’s the aspect of earning money through blogging that they’re not familiar with. Let’s have a look at how you can set up Google Adsense on your blog:
The first step to setting up Google Adsense on your blog is to create the blog first. There are many possible blog services to choose from like WordPress or Blogger, the latter being the easiest blog to set up ads on. After creating and arranging the lay-out of your blog, you should post a couple of entries because the Google Adsense team would first review your site to determine what related ads to place on your blog.
The second step is to apply for a Google Adsense account. You won’t be able to earn without it, so make sure to open one by creating a Google account and signing into Adsense using your account details. After this, Google will then send you an e-mail asking you to verify your e-mail address. Make sure to click on the link so that your application will be sent and a representative will visit your site or blog for review. Since we’re talking about Google Adsense on a blog, continue posting regularly because they’ll be sending you a notice about their overview in a matter of days.
If the Google Adsense team sends you an e-mail of approval, you can then log into your account to get the HTML code, which is what you will paste into your blog or website. You can find this in the Adsense Setup tab, which is where you will find context-sensitive ads under the Adsense for Content link.
The next step is pasting the code into your blog’s HTML editor. Always make sure that you are inserting the code as HTML and that you are pasting it into your blog’s template so that you won’t have to keep putting it in every post you make manually.
By following these steps and posting great content for traffic, you’ll be surprised one day to find money in your account and a letter from Google with your PIN code for you to use to access your funds.
Nowadays a lot of Internet users have heard about making money on the Internet with pay per click advertising. The most popular PPC broker is Google Adsense. With this system you can place ad blocks on your website and get paid for every click your visitors generate.
Lets have a closer look at what Google Adsense has to offer to it’s publishers:
Google Adsense for context – ad bots automatically crawl your pages and
display relevant advertisers, so this means that users, who want more
information, would be glad to visit sponsored ads, and you will earn cash. You
have the option to pick only text, graphic or both types of advertisements. Now
Adsense targets ads using Double Dart cookie, which ensures higher CTR and the
quality of advertisements. – Not more then 3 ad units per page!
Adsense for search – new and improved search system gives your the
possibility to integrate Google search engine into your website and earn money
for clicks generated from the search result pages.
Google Ads for cell phone devices – if your website can be accessed by cell
phone and PDA users, you can earn cash by placing this type of ads too.
Ads for feeds – place ads on your RSS feeds. Here you can place way more ad
units per page (the most I’ve seen was 7 or 8, can’t really remember).
Google Adsense for domains – if you have some spare domains, you can park
them at adsense and earn cash for every generated click.
Every ad unit can be modified to fit your website layout, you can pick the background color, text and link colors. Also I have to tell about the link units, which tend to be more attractive to users. Link units can display more ads on a separate
page. A lot of people, who start up with Adsense wonder how much they can make per click or per 1000 visitors. According to Google website, you can earn up to 5$ per click, but your earning depends only on your user activity (on your CTR – click through-rate). Also I know that new web-masters, who have just signed up with Google adsense want to earn a lot and right away, so they ask friends to click ads. This is strongly forbidden by adsense and I recommend you not to click youradvertisement, google is way more smarter thanyou think.

Blogging Means Getting Traffic To Your Website
This is by far the hardest thing there is when it comes to learning how to make money blogging. Without traffic and people clicking on your website, your not going to make any sales! FACT! You have two choices:
Advertise your blog…
Rank your blog high in the search engines…
If your finding it hard getting traffic to your website then google adwords (ppc) is probably or best bet. This is where your pay per click (ppc) for relavent keywords to what your promoting?
Ranking your blog in search engines means your going to need to do a lot of SEO (search engine optimization). This bassically means you’ll need to get hundreds of high quality backlinks pointing to your money site. Check your competion, see what the top websites are for your particular niche/keyword you want to rank for?
Check what backlinks are pointing to their website, and see if you can outrank them.
Make sure your main keyword has a reasonable density within your post/page. This is called onsite optimization. This is very important. Google and other search engines need to know what your blog is about. Without the correct meta discription, title tages and proper anchor text backlinks pointing back to your website, you won’t stand much chance in competing with your competitors.
