Monetization ideas for createafreewebsite.com

5 replies
Hi guys I just bought createafreewebsite.com gets 18,000 exact searches and I'm working on ranking it.

I was wondering if anyone had ideas on how to monetize it. Build a list? Sell affiliate products? Create my own products?

It will be my first IM site like this but I do have a web design business so it's in my area of expertise.

Thanks

    the best idea in this niche is affiliate links , click bank products and of course Google adsense .

    I think it will be big revenues per click at Google.

    Hope it helps

    There is so much competition in web design it will be really hard to rank for it.

    If you can find an affiliate product i'd use that as there are many build your own site tools out there with a lot of work gone into them. it would be to hard to compete with them.

    Hi guys

    It looks like I'm on the second page of the search results for this now and I'm starting to get a little bit of traffic not much but it's a start. I've put up a page http://createafreewebsite.com/ with a few affiliate links on it.

    I guess I won't really know until I get some decent traffic but any feedback would be good.

      Personal thoughts:
      Is this meant to drive traffic to your design business? It might work for small businesses, but that design is pretty bland if that is your showcase.

      I think a lot of your stuff is out of context. I'm not sure why you are trying to cram everything onto one page. That's a good few posts there. My first inclination on landing on your page was to just go elsewhere, since it just introduced you and I saw no real information and didn't immediately understand the navigation. I'd think your bounce rate would be pretty high on that site.

      I have no idea why I'd join your private email list. Not a dig, mind you. Your site just literally gives no reason.

      I like the godaddy/hostgator ads, I think that they make sense for this type of site, but I think your conversions are going to be pretty bad. For someone looking for free, those are not. For someone that doesn't know what they are doing, they don't know what to buy. I also wouldn't mention that they include an affiliate link right there, considering most people at this stage won't even know what that means most likely.

      I eventually also started to get a weird youtube video popping up in my face in the upper left corner. Dunno what that was.

      Last but not least: This doesn't seem to have a ton of on-page optimization for that keyword.

      Boils down to: Choose a goal and stick to it. This is either to link to your business, or make advertising profit. Right now its splitting the difference.

    You could write an ebook about how to make a website for free and promote it on your site or use it as an incentive for visitors to opt-in to your email list. If you get it first page, definitely put Adsense on your site. A lot of people go on YouTube to learn how to make a free website, you could also make a video that links to your website and also rank the video on YouTube and google.
