  • 1. 5 Ways to Generate Income From a Website Most websites and website owners like to make money. Sure, some sites exist as a hobby but even that can turn an income as a lot of prolific YouTube video posters are finding. So what are the main ways to generate income from a website once you've got more than a handful of traffic to it? Copyright Trevor Dumbleton
  • 2. 1. Pay per Click adverts Google encourage websites to put in a block of code that allows them to display Google AdSense adverts related to their website content. It's been available for a number of years and, once you've applied and been approved, so long as you keep within Google's terms and conditions, you'll get paid every time someone clicks on an advert you've displayed. There are other pay per click networks that you can use if you prefer but most of them offer a similar revenue share to Google's. Copyright Trevor Dumbleton
  • 3. 2. Product adverts These are similar to pay per click adverts but instead of displaying someone else's advert that they've placed on Google or elsewhere, you display your own links to products. The most common option here is to put up links to a shopping site such as Amazon. You can find products for almost any niche in existence and put up adverts for those products.

  • 4. Amazon and other similar sites will offer you a range of options from simple text links through to images of the product or even best sellers related to your niche. These links only pay out when someone actually buys the product but often pay out a higher amount than you'd get per click on regular adverts. If they're appropriate to your website, you can also link to other networks such as Commission Junction or Clickbank or private affiliate networks which often offer a higher percentage commission than Amazon, sometimes up to tens or even hundreds of dollars per sale made.

  • 5. 3. Sell your own products Potentially this offers the highest margin of the options detailed so far in this article. You're in control of most if not all factors involved and that means you should be getting a higher margin as you're cutting out the middleman. Or you might decide to take the middle ground and sell products that you've bought in wholesale quantities - a lot of eBay and Amazon sellers do this and so long as you get the purchase and sales prices right (not always an easy task) then you can make good money.

  • 6. 4. Sell advertising space Usually this doesn't make economic sense until you have a lot of traffic to your website because of the administration time involved and the extra effort potential advertisers have to go through to find you. But it could be worth putting up a page on your site offering advertising opportunities as some of your regular visitors may decide it's a good fit for them. Another twist on this is to sell links or even complete posts on your blog. You need to be careful about doing either of these to make sure that you don't fall foul of any of Google's rules which could have a negative effect on your site but so long as it's done well, this can work as a revenue stream.

  • 7. 5. Join a pay per review site This is different from selling advertising space. There are a number of networks out their that will pay you to write a sponsored post or that will link you with people who will send you a free sample of their product in return for a review on your website.
