Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I have two websites that I just developed leaving room for advertising. A banner at the top and a banner on the side.
Now what? I'm kinda new to this game.
Is there a company that places ads now on my sites? Who?
How much can I expect to make $$? How does it work?
Does it cost me anything upfront?
Thanks for any help you can offer and the Web101 lesson!
It is greatly appreciated!
Google (through Adsense)
All have their pros and cons, but none of these three charge you the publisher anything.
As for how much money you can make, don't give up your day job <g>
Starting right off with monetizing can sometimes take away from your time/efforts of actually building a successful online site/community.
Hope this helps!
I never put any affiliate links on at first. I wait until I am ranking for the keywords I want. Patience is a virtue.
I don't even put AdSense on right away. I have no proof, but in unscientific tests I've done Yahoo does't like to see it on a brand new site. It's fine to add it later, but not on a brand new site...just my opinion.
