Earn with Domain Auctions

Usually Publishers make a bulk of their online income with CPC, Inline Ads and Affiliate Marketing. One aspect of online earning mostly neglected is "Earning through Domain Auctions". Domains can influence Search Engine Rankings to a significant extent. Getting the right domain for your site is the first step towards a healthy online earning. You could purchase domains at service providers such as GoDaddy who along with Domains also provide other services like Dedicated Hosting Services, Virtual IP and also Private Registration.

Agencies like GoDaddy and Sedo allow you to auction your domains. The Domain owner has to first establish his/her ownership and then go ahead and state the High and the Low of the bid amount. You could also set preferences such as "Buy-Now Only". It is very important to understand the value of the domain before they are put to auction. Often Domain owners request for an exaggerated sum of money for their domains. It is usually a good option to get your domain appraised by some good agency before going ahead with the bid.

One such agency is "Cubestat". It is a free service and you get an approximate value of your site. This could provide you the much needed price-range for setting up the auction. There are many factors which might influence the price of domains. Some of them are:

  • Age of Domain
  • Hyphenated Domains
  • 2-3 Letter Domains
  • Abbrevated Domains

Tame the Might Adsense

How could you possibly tame the mighty Adsense? The answer surprisingly is to "Play by the Rules". Yes, it is the most common mistake made by inexperienced publishers - Click Frauds. You cannot get away with huge sums of money by engaging in click frauds. Most likely it would be tracked and your Adsense account would be terminated forever without any explanation. So, how to Make Millions Online using Adsense?

The biggest challenge for Publishers is to get quality Organic Traffic. Higher Traffic usually translates to higher Adsense Earnings. Once you manage to get the required impressions, you could go ahead and tune other parameters such as Ad Placement, Ad Blending and Ad Management.

To get more Organic Traffic to your site, you need to make certain that your site ranks high on the Keywords targetted in your website. If your website deals with a very common term, it would be very tough to get the necessary rank. It is highly recommended to choose the niche of your website with great caution.

What is Search Engine Optimization?

There are millions of webpages added every day to the World Wide Web. How do you get the best and most relevant pages out of these millions? The answer is "Search Engines". The Search Engines are responsible for going through these innumerable pages and sifting out the best from the bunch. Seems tedious right? Yes it is tedious and requires a huge amount of processing and storage to achieve the desired result. So, the next time you write an article and publish it online, you would be faced with the obvious questions: How do i make certain that my page is unique and gets a good feedback from Search Engines?

"This Post tells you the concept of Search Engine Optimization and also tells you ways to achieve a good Page Rank for your website"

"Search Engine Optimization" as the term suggests, is the process of optimizing your webpages for Search Engines. All Search Engines operate primarily on the concept of "Page Rank". This is the process of ranking each webpage on a scale of 10. The more, the better! What factors decide the Page Rank of a certain Page? There are thousands, but the most relevant is 'in-coming links'. The Search Engines operate on a Fundamental Rule, "If the Page has important information, it would be referenced by more relevant pages". It is much like Research Papers, if it is good, it shall be referenced in more Research Journals. Another important factor is 'Keyword Density". Search Engines parse the contents of a webpage to decide if it contains relevant information.

So, if you want to rank high in Search Engine Rankings, the following are a must:-

  • Write Relevant and Unique articles
  • Use Keywords properly to maintain a healthy keyword density
  • Make use of Meta-Tags and Header Text Tags
  • Create as many backlinks as possible
  • Submit Your Blog to Blog Directories
  • Create RSS Feeds and submit them to RSS Directories
  • Write Review articles about your Blog
  • Always Have a "Privacy Page" and "Contact US" on your site
  • Never use Black-Hat Techniques like cloaking

Increase Visitor Traffic

This is one of the biggest challenge faced by new publishers. Publishers could enroll in Advertising programs to publicize their site, but this costs the publishers. One of the leading Online Advertising is the Google Adwords Program. But the trick is to get the traffic without spending money! In this post i shall discuss on such method.


Adbrite has come up with a Free Link Exchange Program. It is called 'Spottt'. How does Spottt work? The publishers have to create a thumbnail image of size 120x120 and upload it along with a JavaScript to their landing Page. Once this is done, the Spottt program searches compatible sites and allows these thumbnails to be displayed on other participating sites.

This way the publisher is relieved from the act of spending hours searching for compatible sites and negotiating link exchange. This method is highly efficient and does help in boosting traffic to sites. You could visit one such site enrolled in Link Exchange by clicking here.

The following screen-shot shows Spottt in action:
