Making Cash On The Web is a serious attempt to compile useful information about making money on the internet. It is a combination of things that I have learned myself, as well as information culled from other sources. It is NOT about get rich quick schemes, or wierd marketing programs. I am not going to sell you anything.
The first rule of making cash on the internet is not to spend any more doing it than you have to. That’s why I recommend that you use WordPress—a free content management (blog) system—as the backbone of your site.
However, if you want to do anthing more complicated, you are going to need an html editor. Once again, there are a host of free editors out there.
One that I have tried and liked is Evr Soft’s 1st Page 2000 html editor. It’s very easy to use because of its wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) operation, and all of the built-in scripts and wizards.
Knowledge is power. And in the case of running a web site for profit, knowledge is money.
The more you know about who is visiting your website, the better. You need to know how many people are visiting, what websites they came from, what key words they used in the search that led them to you, and so on.
The best way to do this is to sign up for a site statistics service. After you insert a bit of html/java into an inconspicious place on your website, these services will track dozens of different statistics for you. Then, you can simply go to their website, log in and see how your site is doing.
Fortunately many of these services are free. This site has a comparison of different free web site statistics trackers.
Creating a link is one of the most basic tasks in building a website.
Here’s how you do it.
First, you need the address of the thing you are linking to. For example, this site’s address is http://www.makingcashontheweb.com
Then, you begin by typing the following
After the “ , you enter the address of the site and a closing >
Now, it looks like this:
after the > , you type in the text that you want to show up as the link.
Then, you close the link by typing </a>
So the whole thing looks like this:
<a href="http://www.mysite.com">My Site</a>
