Hi there,

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!

There are a number of companies, who supply advertising.

Google (through Adsense)
Casale Media

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>

You can add Burst Media, Fastclick(now Valueclick, but a different sign-up), Yahoo, Tribal Fusion as well as many others.

Some require more unique visitors or pageviews than others.

I would advise to not worry about putting ads up just yet. Focus on building your site content up, getting some decent rankings in search engines and some decent traffic. Once your site starts to grow naturally and your traffic with it, then focus on how to monetize it.

Starting right off with monetizing can sometimes take away from your time/efforts of actually building a successful online site/community.

Hope this helps!

Google Adsense is always a good place to start (since they don't require that you have a certain amount of traffic going to your site). Don't worry too much about the ads at first though... work on growing your site first, that's much more valuable in the long run than focusing too much on ads.

Hi Sounds Good. I am new to affiliate marketing also. I am just now trying to get my website and webhost. Where did you get your website?

...not to mention that putting too much affiliate advertising on a brand new site could hurt it...

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.
