FREE Domain with Web Hosting Purchase Web Hosting as low as $11.95 a month
all webmasters know that there are many ways to make money from websites. Or what most do not realize, however, is that selling a website can be very profitable even if it is only in the early stages with little monetization or promotion done. If you are looking for another strategy to make money online than stay tuned and learn how to make money by selling simple websites.
Although there is a lot of money to be made by selling well established websites it is much easier to start a new website and then immediately sell it without having to work on any promotion whatsoever. This article will provide a brief overview of a great strategy for making money by selling simple websites.
The first thing that you need to do is register a domain and hosting account, GoDaddy and NameCheap are a couple of your best bets because they allow you to 'push' a domain to another user's account for free. Now all you need to do is come up with a simple website template. You may consider purchasing one to use for many different websites if your HTML, PHP, or CSS skills are subpar. Once you have this you are ready to begin creating your website.

In order to get the maximum return for a brand-new website you want to be able to offer a few things. The first thing that you want to offer is a site with a potential to earn. This means pick up the topic of the website based on something that is easy to monetize. A good indication of a hot topic is something that coincides with the product which is in high demand over the Internet. The topic of your website is one of the key factors in how much it will sell for.
After you have selected your topic the next thing that you need to do is build some great quality content. The next biggest factor in the price that your website will fetch is the content that it contains. You need to write somewhere between 15 to 25 articles for your new website. These should be anywhere from 350 to 600 words each. Do your keyword research on each of these articles, you will fetch a higher price when you sell your website if they align well with ads yet have low enough competition where they can attract a decent amount of traffic. Each of these articles needs to be 100% unique, if they are simply copied then your website will be worthless.

Now all that is left is to slap your content on your template, you can use your template for the next website as well, and do some minor design tweaks. A stylish looking Web 2.0 header and logo will increase the potential price of your website. There are many freely available for Photoshop tutorials which can teach you how to easily make professional looking graphics. After this is all done upload your files to your website and tie it in to your domain name. It should be noted that your price will also increase if you select a good domain name, learn the factors to look for when selecting a domain name here .
All that is left from here is selling your new website. I recommend putting your website on multiple forums for sale at the same time so that you may reach the largest base of potential buyers. Two forums which you must list on to get a maximum price include DigitalPoint and SitePoint. A good strategy is to set a low starting price with a high by it now price for your website auction. You should easily be able to turn your days worth of work into $150 - $225 depending on the quality of your selected topic, articles, graphics and domain name.
Hopefully this great strategy for making money by selling simple websites has showed you how easy it can be to earn a full-time income from the comfort of your own home.

There has been a tremendous amount of hype and ballyhoo over the past several years about starting a home based, Internet business.The advantages are well known and include the rapidly expanding Internet market place and the variety of products and services one can find and purchase there. What isn't well known or widely discussed are the numerous pitfalls and hurdles to developing a successful Internet business, for the individual entrepreneur.
The negatives start with the fact that there are literally thousands of offers and services, to chose from, some of them sell very well, most of them don't. In order to chose a successful sales niche and be able to turn around and sell products profitably, requires a great number of skills.
Skills needed, include website and or blog building and development. This may also include some basic knowledge of HTML, php, and wordpress, among others. You'll likely also need to learn about marketing systems online, such as using pay-per-click systems such as Goggle Adwords, or developing organic traffic through SEO (search engine optimization) etc.
For you see, you can't make sales unless you drive MASSIVE amounts of traffic (visitors) to your site, so that they can purchase what you're selling (hopefully). It doesn't matter if you have the greatest product in the world - if no one knows about it, you don't make sales. Traffic on the Internet rules.

Ultimately, your success will depend on learning a great variety of skills and abilities over a period of time. If you choose to go it alone, it could take literally years, trying to learn through trial and error. It will also cost you something, as most successful Internet businesses need to purchase web domains, web hosting and advertising, software etc., the list goes on.
One way around the learning curve is to obtain the needed information and step by step training from a successful online marketer and trainer. Hopefully this will be a reputable training service, or website/blog, that has your interests at heart. Regardless, it may cost something, but the good news is that there are some excellent programs available.
The bottom line is that there are no quick fixes or shortcuts to riches - buyer beware! It will eventually boil down to a matter of your time, or your money or realistically, some degree of both. The really awesome thing is that you really can make lots of money with an Internet business once you know what you're doing and if you possess the determination and perseverance to deal with increased competition.

The internet has become all the rage. If you have internet you have to get a hold of Facebook, Myspace and Twitter. The reason being is because these are becoming the futuristic tools to networking. It could network opportunities for a job, finding old friends or even starting your own personal career on the internet. It is a great way to get noticed.
Facebook gives its own definition to its site. Facebook's mission from the website itself is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. Millions of people use Facebook everyday to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet. It use to be a tool only available to college students but it has recently opened up to the rest of the non-collegiate world. This device is great since it was founded in 2004. But be careful some jobs just might even use it as a resume upkeep. Facebook does not allow users to change the background like myspace.

Twitter is the newly formed baby of the Myspace and Facebook world. Twitter is also a social-networking took that allows for users to tweet! Tweeting is the update of status changes that users use on the site. It is text based and allows up to 140 characters. When you start out on Twitter it gives you the option of putting your full first and last name as well as a username that others can recognize you by. Celebutonts love this application.

Without SEO, I would have to promote these articles in various places around the Internet, which is time consuming.

I looked at the news today and realized something: There is no rest
for the weary. The "Koobface" worm or infamous "Facebook Worm" that
was first discovered last July has made a comeback, attacking users on
social networking websites such as Facebook and MySpace. Needless to
say, the worm has been improved. "Koobface" Worm Attacks Facebook,
MySpace and Other Social Networking Sites
This new and improved version of Koobface is seen as an invitation
from a friend of the account owner. It invites you to click on a link
and view a video on a counterfeit YouTube site. Everything may look
alright to the average user. The video even has fake comments and
However, when you try to watch the video, a pop-up
states that you need to install Adobe Flash plug-in to view it. When
users attempt to download the fake plug-in, they really download a
Trojan horse program that gives the Koobface creator(s) control over
the computer. The worm then takes over your social networking account,
sending the same message to your own friends. According to The
Washington Post, other networks currently seeing evidence of the
Koobface worm are hi5.com, friendster.com, myyearbook.com, bebo.com
and livejournal.com. Engineers at Trendmicro.com have seen the worm at
tagged.com, netlog.com and fubar.com.
The new worm is clever and knows how to pull in the tiny details
necessary to fool someone into thinking it is the real deal. The
YouTube video, besides having comments and responses, even lists the
author as the friend who sent you the message. The worm even pulls the
friend's picture from the social networking site. The original
Koobface worm had two variants and was first discovered last July by
secure content developer, Kaspersky Lab. These worms,
Win32.Koobface.a. and Win32.Koobface.b, attacked MySpace and Facebook
respectively and operated in the same way as this newer strain.
How do you keep the worms out of your computer? Don't invite them in
in the first place. Basic Internet awareness and keeping your
computer's antivirus updated and running every day is enough to keep
you safe. Facebook's Security page offers several helpful hints in
response to the Koobface infections and for everyday use: Never Click
Suspicious Links: They could be unknowingly sent from your friends if
they are infected with viruses or malware. Never run any ".exe" files
without first investigating what they are. Do your research. Keep your
"Koobface" Worm Attacks Facebook, MySpace and Other Social Networking Sites.
Have a Unique, Strong Password: Use different passwords for all your
accounts and ensure that they will be hard to guess by using a variety
of numbers, letters and punctuation marks. Run Anti-Virus Software:
Make sure you have some sort of software and run a scan every day.
This will keep you on your game and your computer safe.

We all know what SEO is, what SEM is, what PPC is, how search engines
work, and how it all relates to building websites and performing well
in the web world.
But for the everyday Internet user, these are likely not things that
you think about on an everyday basis. Or you may have just heard these
terms for the first time and wondered what it all meant. Believe it or
not, simply understanding the basics I am describing here may help
you become a more proficient Internet user as a whole; and if
performed properly, the SEO tactics that follow should help you
improve the amount of traffic that comes to your website naturally
(i.e. at no cost to you).
For starters, let me define these three key acronyms:
SEM - Search Engine Marketing
PPC - Pay-Per-Click
SEO - Search Engine Optimization
What is SEM?
Let me begin with Search Engine Marketing, as this term is very broad
and fairly simple to explain. Anyone who utilizes search engines to
market their website is doing Search Engine Marketing, or SEM. This
includes Pay-Per-Click and Search Engine Optimization, as well as
other techniques, such as Social Networking or link building.
What about PPC?
The most common term associated with SEM is Pay Per Click, or PPC. PPC
is the act of just what it sounds - paying for clicks. This is done
via search engines such as Google or Yahoo, as well as others such as
MSN or Ask.com. Any company that performs PPC does so by placing bids
on keywords through one or more of these search engines.

They then pay
each time that ad is clicked on (but not until it is clicked on). This
can be as simple as setting a bid price on a few of the terms most
closely associated with your website, or as complicated as bidding on
thousands of keywords and keyword groups that research has proven to
be commonly used by users who are interested in a website such as
When you perform a search within any search engine - lets say Google
for the sake of simplicity - you get two types of results: paid search
results and organic search results. Lets pretend I was interested in
purchasing a copy of "The Tao of Pooh" online. I go to Google and I
search "Tao of Pooh". This takes me to a results page that Google has
populated for me. At the top of the page, I will likely see a few
links with a yellow background (and if you look closely, you will
notice a label at the top of this area that says "Sponsored Links").
There are also likely a handful of links on the right side of the
screen (also with a subtle "Sponsored links" label at the top). These
are paid search results and are, as you would guess, the product of
PPC. All other results are called organic, or natural, results. So now
we know where paid search ads come from and have a vague idea of how
Google and others decide to put them there.
What about the rest of these other organic results, right? Well that's
where SEO comes in.
So then what is SEO?
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is the act of optimizing a website
such that search engines "like" your site. Unfortunately SEO is no
simple science, but that is the beauty of it. Search engines have what
are called search algorithms, or extremely complex rating systems,
that have the power to decide how relevant your site is to any given
keyword search based on a variety of factors. Where PPC is driven by
the amount that is being bid on a keyword, SEO is being driven by how
relevant your website is to the given search term(s). Sounds scary,
but the wonderful thing is, the better their algorithm, the more
likely you are to end up landing on a website that is exactly what you
were looking for.
How do Search Engines Work?
When a search is performed, the search engine sends its "spiders" out
to crawl every website on the Internet. Then, using their search
algorithm, they are able to rate which of those sites is most relevant
to the given search term(s) and return those results to you in order
or their rated relevance. Although few people know exactly everything
that is on that algorithms ever-changing mind, there are a number of
factors in a websites content, design and structure that are given a
great deal of importance. Relevancy is key - the more relevant a site
is to a given search term or group of search terms, the more likely
your site is to appear organically. But how do you prove that your
site is more relevant than another site, when there are so many other
sites out there?
More Specifically, how do I Effectively Perform SEO?
Aha, so now you want to know the key? Well again, there is no perfect
science to it, but here is what I have gathered over time as the most
important aspects of SEO that should help you focus your to improve
your site's organic search results:
The keywords that are used within your site should be relevant to your
sites content and should be chosen such that any user who is
interested in your product or service would likely be searching using
terms that are contained within your site content. Make sure that the
most prominent keywords make up 3-5% of your site content.
Links - inbound as well as internal:
Search engines view inbound links as important because it shows that
sites other than your own have some interest in your site and
therefore gives your site legitimacy and relevance. Links within your
site that link to other pages within the site are also considered
important, as it shows your site is organized in a way that improves
the user's experience. Pages on your site that have nothing linking to
them are not going to help your site out in any way.
Although this is not something you can change on the fly, it is true
that if your site has existed for some time, you are going to have a
better time at coming up higher in search results.
If you are using content that exists elsewhere, your site will be
punished for it. I recommend always having original content on your
site - even if it is only subtly different.
These are just keywords and descriptions that live within the code of
you site that tell search engines what your main keywords are and
provide a description of your site. If these are omitted, you are
missing out on a great chance to tell the search engine a lot about
your site and are likely going to be dinged pretty good by the search
Site code and structure:
There are many ways that sites can be coded to be more cleanly and
more ideal for search engines. If you have the opportunity, have
someone look at your site's code to ensure that you do not have excess
code, that you are tagging all of your images and other elements
appropriately, and especially if your site is flash-based, that your
site has html files associated with those flash files so that there is
text for the search engines to read.
The list could go on, but lets not go overboard and overwhelm
ourselves - this is a great starting off point and will have you busy
for some time.
I hope that this guide gave you a good intro into the wonderful world
of online marketing and all that it entails! Feel free to let me know
if you would like to learn more about any of this and I will certainly
be happy to take it a step farther. Happy searching!
