How Do Websites Make Money? by nankosa(m): 4:30pm On Apr 23, 2008
Hi all,
I wonder how websites make money. For example i buy a cafe ticket to use their system for a period of time. Then i visit some websites. How does these sites get paid from my just visiting them. I know that the cafe pays to an ISP. Does the ISP split the money with site owners. I don't understand how a website will make me money. Please help out.

Nice question! I hope my answer will be good enough. Here we go.

Websites make money by providing information that meets people's need. That is the simple answer. But it is much more complicated than that since there are differ kinds of websites.

For example, whenever you visit Nairaland Forum , you get information free-of-charge (abi you dey pay, me I never pay since I joined grin) on whatever topic you are interested in. The Website owner Mr. Seun will not ask you to pay any money to him. However, as you may have observed, there are advertisements being displayed on the website. If you click on those advertisements they will take you to other sites where you may be given further information or persuaded to purchase a product or service. Such advertisement is what keep the Nairaland Forum Owner going. The owner of such links are sometimes required to pay. (Except free user's like us, who parasite on his generosity)

If I may bring it down to lay-man's terms, ask yourself, how do Television and Radio Stations make money? You and I watch and listen to those programs being aired freely (Except you are a big man using Cable TV). But we are often made to listen (without requesting) to Coca-Cola and other producers making boast on what their products and services can do (As a result of listening to those Coca-cola jingles, I have become addicted to Coke, Pepsi have been begging me to have a change of mind, but I am yet to decamp). Those companies advertising pay so much money to be allowed to play such jingles (If not that the money is much, I would have been on NTA national network to advertise my website grin instead of relying on Mr. Seun's website, Nairaland for exposure) . And that is where the TV and Radio houses get their money from.

While I may have sounded unserious, that is the whole truth about how websites make money. For further information, you can get in touch with me via my website. If you read the following post http://naijaecash.com/2008/03/10/the-nigerian-entrepreneur-seeking-to-make-money-online/ you will understand why I started the website. I will be willing to provide more free information to you because one of these days, I am expecting the big advertisers to come begging me for opportunity to advertise on my website. Hey, I am not joking, I truly mean it. Cheers.

There are more to be done than having a website and putting Google Adsense codes on it.
Did you know that you could have a website with Google Adsense plus massive traffic and still not make $5.00 a month from it?

Ask those who are into it to tell you the truth.

Did you know that you could have few qualified visitors and generate more clicks and more revenue from your website? Just know what you are doing as an expert.

The secret to generating more income and more clicks from any Adsense websites are:

1. keyword-rich or quality keyword contents (some keywords are valed at 3cents per click while some are valued $40.00 per click)

2. quality traffic (mostly generated by search engines)

If you truly want to establish an online business (not creating another job) you must understand that you need to get people's TRUST first, by providing quality SERVICES and PRODUCTS, afterwards, the PROFIT you desire so much will start flowing EFFORTLESSLY. Reverse the principle and you will only earn a few bucks before your secret will be out and then you will be blacklisted forever. Maybe you have not yet notices, WRITTEN testimony on the internet never go away! If one, just one individual discover you are a con-artist, a liar, and he/she takes time to write about it in just one paragraph, that testimony will be kept by Google and other search engine, to be presented to anyone that cares to find out about your INTEGRITY! So, wise-up.
Do not defraud people using false-claim. When you get discovered, the online community will never forgive you (even if they want to). Cheers.

Websites make money for their owners in many different ways. Some channels are more direct than others. A few respondents have stated the more direct channels, such as implementing Google Adsense or affiliate links for visitors to click on, and you get paid.

You can also offer more direct services online: web-based training, domain names, hosting, or resell someone else's services online.

However, most websites help their owners generate money more the indirect way.

For one, if you have a well-done website providing accurate and detailed information about what you do and how it cn benefit people, your visitors who need your services will get in touch, and you get to make money.

Whether you are a lawyer, engineer, technician, instructor, or even a stay-at-home mom - whatever your line, a webite can help you earn money.
