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.
Web site speed is important. Studies have shown that you lose as much as 50% of your potential visitors if your site takes more than 8 seconds to load.
There are a lot of sites that offer free spotchecks of a site’s speed. Here are two:
WoW is a directory that lets you submit your site for free. Burrow through until you find an appropriate category and then click on the submit url link in that category.
Pixelfast offers a free tool to help you research the prices that advertisers are paying for clicks. It queries the Overture pricing tool and presents the information in a usable format.
The Affiliate Masters Program offers a free e-book on making cash on the internet through affiliate marketing. It’s worth a read.
To find out what various advertisers are paying for clicks for different key words, try the Overture Bid Tool. You can type in key words, and Overture will tell you what the current bid is.
Of course, this tool only gives you the pricing for Overture, but it’s probably save to assume that prices are similar on other programs such as Google Adsense.
