by: Michael Turner
Making money online is really easy to do because the entire world is becoming Internet savvy with a preference for shopping online. Because of this fact, you need to make sure you are doing your best to meet the needs of individuals online and increasing the internet traffic coming to your website.
-Free Web Sites
Free web sites can cause major problems for you if you're actually trying to make money with your website. Many people make the mistake of choosing a free web site host to save money, however most of these hosting accounts post advertising on your site, are not reliable, enforce certain restrictions on the size of photos and graphics, and provide limited space. Because of this, it is more difficult for you to design your web pages effectively and also more difficult to reach customers because your website gives the impression that you are not serious about your business.
-Poor Design and Organization
Another pitfall many beginners fall into when it comes to trying to make money from websites is that they do not consider how the design and organization of their website will affect their visitors. If your website is not designed properly and organized accordingly, making it easy for web surfers to find exactly what the want quickly and efficiently, then you will lose traffic and ultimately revenue from lost sales.
Another situation that many newbies run into when creating a website in order to make money is that they create difficult to spell and remember URL addresses. Unfortunately these website addresses are often times extremely long as well, making it even more difficult to get it right. If you want to make money via a website, make sure you create an easy to remember website URL that is short, sweet, and to the point.
Another problem individuals experience when trying to make money with their websites is that they fail to optimize their websites for the search engines and as a result, they do not receive high rankings and miss out on lots of free, targeted traffic because of it. If you want to make money with your website, then you should make sure you optimize your site for the search engines. Different search engines look for different things, so do some research to find out what you need to include on your website for the different search engines and make them happy!
