Monetizing Your Traffic Flow

With the recent updating of Google page ranks, blogs and websites have either gained or lost their respective ranks. Some webmasters who have lost their PR (page ranks) are complaining in dismay while some others who have gained are scrambling on how to take advantage of it.

While having a higher Google PR can be considered a webmaster’s prestige, it can be used by some advertising companies as basis in approving adverts in your site. Higher PR can also attract other webmasters to exchange links with you (without you asking it). I guess, you’ll probably think twice when a new blogger with a zero page rank (like this one) requests to exchange links with you. Haha.

But the most important is generating a steady desirable traffic, desirable in such a way that a good traffic flowing to your site is easily convertible to online profit. This may not be an easy task. You have to compete with a great number of sites to generate a good amount of traffic flow. But if done successfully this could open up a Pandora’s Box of opportunities.

One of the opportunities is monetizing your traffic flow. Monetizing your traffic would optimize your chances of making the best out of it.

Proven Methods of Making Money out of your Traffic

Okay, I’m not an expert to internet marketing but here are some basic methods of monetizing your traffic flow which I have learned from so-called marketing gurus:

Advertising. The best and most proven method of making a profit out of your traffic is using adverts. The internet generates millions of traffic everyday. Most of them are searching for something that they need or simply looking for information on a particular product.

Pay-per-click. When you have good traffic you have a good number of potential customers, customers that are willing to pour money into your coffers. Other than that these are also traffic that can be redirected to sponsored links that are willing to pay you for a respectable portion of the traffic that you have generated.

This scheme is called “pay-per-click”. With every click a visitor of your site makes on an advertised link you will be paid. The more traffic you generate and the more clicks performed would mean more profits.

Affiliate Programs. Another method of monetizing your traffic is through affiliate programs. When purchases are made by customers that were led by your site to their site you get a percentage of that sale. Affiliate programs would give you the benefit of monetizing your traffic without the actual need of carrying or promoting your own product.

It is best to choose the best affiliate programs that can keep track and make records of transactions that was made possible because of site linkage.

There are so many ways and methods to monetize your traffic. All it takes is a bit of hard work and the desire to successfully launch a profit-earning site. The World Wide Web is a veritable source of information, lots of tips and guides are provided everywhere on how to monetize your net traffic and make your site a good profit earner.
