Generating income from a site

Msg#: 4092888 posted 8:52 am on Mar 7, 2010 (gmt 0)


I am looking to generate some kind of income from running a site or a few sites.

since I do not have much coding skills I used wordpress opposed dreamweaver to develop some of my domains.

<snip> is what I have so far.

my initial goal was to develop my domain names so that I could possibly sell them.

I have the adsense in and some content, but I am not sure where I should go with all of this, there are a number of ways but I dont want to sell ebooks or maybe I do. I am just not sure of how I can go about this. I have been looking at a lot of options and I made the first step of developing something. But I would need some more insight.

I guess I am looking for suggestions and possibly a clear set of options to take.

First required is a site with value in both content and income possibilities. Only then can marketing the site for sale begin.

I have things set up, I guess I would like to know more about gaining more traffic, I have two sites set up the same way catering to two different types of topics.

I also would like to know how I can gain more twitter followers. I tweet about once or twice a day... I could do more. but this is also something That I could help someone else with if I knew a little more...

The most important thing you can do with any site is create really good content. Its the content that gives users a reason to visit. When you have great content you can then attract good quality inbound links.

Regarding Twitter and getting more followers, What you can do is use the twitter search to find other users who are tweeting about your theme/topic. Follow them and hope they follow you back.

Don't waste time Tweeting to much, If you fill a users time line they are likely to unfollow you. Only Tweet something you think will be well received, and no more than a few times a day.

what are your thoughts about auto blogging?

Please read the 1st paragraph of Mack's post again. And again. And a third time, just to make sure...

The single word that is repeated in each sentence is content. Content, really good content and great content. Will auto blogging let you create this?

I believe auto blogging is a possibility, it may not be the best compared to real original content as you are mentioning.

But I am looking to autopilot some of my sites while I focus on others that I have prioritized.

Forget about auto blogging. Do you have any successful sites already? If you answer yes, concentrate on them, if you answer no concentrate on a small number of sites and get them content rich, optimized and promoted.

There aren't any magic short cuts.
