In this modern day and age blogging and browsing on the internet are turning into a profession, and with so many free items on the internet, for some it has become a hobby. Knowing when and how to incorporate ads into your site can be quite a difficult task. We will look at some tips to help you know when and how to do advertising on your website and what your options are, for doing so.
When is it necessary to incorporate Ads on the web site?
First take a good look at your website – just creating a good-looking website is not enough. Most people start websites with only one motive in mind – to generate income. Though this should in the list yes, you have to focus more on the content of the website. A website should have creative, genuine and timeless content that will attract traffic. And, that is the beginning stage and your efforts should be spent attracting users not only once but also finding a way to keep them coming again and again.
Investors usually move in this direction and with more and more people they will be interested in your site and will want to advertise on it.
Where to place the adverts?
The ad area should be an integral part of the design from the outset of the project, and so from the very beginning it must be decided upon whether the site is going to be used for advertising, because ads play a major role in the overall layout.
How to place the adverts
There are different methods to go about having advertisements on your site. To start with we will discuss the commonly used channel, and that is Google AdSence, which is a free program that empowers online publishers to earn revenue by displaying relevant Ads with a lot of online content.
According to different users its has shown to have pros and cons. The main advantage is that Google Ads are fairly recognizable but could be considered tacky by most users and this is not a good reputation to be associated with a site.
Again, the website owner may feel some frustration over the lack of control over what types of Ads appear on the site and some do not match the theme of the site at all. The other option is to do it alone where your site does not need to look for any outside sources. What is required is simply put an “Advertise Here” banner on the site and it will lead to potential advertisers. There are advantages for this where there is complete freedom over the content, where it is possible to manipulate the service to see what best works for you and also freedom to charge whatever you want.
The main disadvantage for this is finding quality advertisers – and that can be hard work. Directly managing advertisers is time-consuming and there is no guarantee of making money.
The third option for putting up Ads is in Text-Ads where you would want to avoid the visual clutter of a sidebar full of ads. These companies place ads in your articles by highlighting keywords with a double underline. Placing the cursor over these words brings up a floating ad that might or might not have anything to do with the underlined word. The ad goes away, simply by taking the mouse away.
There are other different methods such as BuySellAds and The Deck which are mostly used by different types designers.
In conclusion web advertising should be given priority and some thought put into it, starting from the layout of the website, the content of the website and the method of advertising.
In this modern day and age blogging and browsing on the internet are turning into a profession, and with so many free items on the internet, for some it has become a hobby. Knowing when and how to incorporate ads into your site can be quite a difficult task. A website needs to have creative, genuine and timeless content that will lead to traffic flow.
