As with all businesses creating extra revenue streams is a good thing and that is why here at Web designers London we have decided to start selling web design goods on line. We have also been deciding whether to sell our soul to the world on online advertising.

As all web design companies know, you are really busy with multiple projects on the go at any one time, or your work load has slowed down but the bills still keep coming. We have decided to put a plan of action in to generate a steady stream of income.

Sell advertising space on your website

If you have a well established website and have a few spare free spaces lying about why not sell the space for adverts?

The first place to start would be Google Adsense, this is a service set up by Google where people who pay Google through Google adwords to set up a Pay Per Click campaigns.

To set up a Google Adsense account you first need a Google account, you then create a Google Adsense account. You set up your account details by receiving a small amount of funds from Google in to your bank account, you then type in the amount to verify your bank details (similar to the PayPal set up). You also have to verify your phone number and address by receiving pin numbers to confirm your details.

Once you are all set up you can go to your Google Adsense control panel and choose the type of adverts you wish to display. You also have the feature to block certain categories of ads e.g. Dating, Gambling and insurance. When you are happy you are given a block of code to insert in to your website and ready to start making money.

You get paid by visitors who click on an advert displayed on your website, the cost of the click depends on the how well your website is doing with Google position and how much traffic you have coming to your website.

How to get the most out of Google Adsense

There are people out there who are generating very good revenue through using Google Adsense. This is done by researching highly used keyword phrases using tools such as Google Adword tools. You then can set yourself up a hosting account and buy yourself a few good domain names, set up websites to rank well in search engines by writing good quality content. When your website is further up the rankings you can insert adverts on to the site and watch the money roll in.
