5 Adsense Alternatives
A nice and highly paying alternative for Adsense, it works great for sites which have great traffic, it uses the same method that's being used by BuySellAds they will place the banner with the text "your ad here" in the place that you allowed for showing ads. So Adbrite will find some people to sell their ads on your site or companies that see the space on your site can put their ads by contacting AdBrite people. The rates for your ads can also be set by you also you can block some ads if that doesn't suits your visitors needs.
A great network that pays up to 85% of the revenue, the reviews about Clicksor says that their ads are fully based on the context and you can specify the keywords related to your site's content so the ads matching your content will only be served. Like others you can add multiple domains under one account if they are approved. Their minimum payout is $20 through Pay Pal and through Check is $50. The three special ad formats that Clicksor has are Pop under s, Interstitial ads and Dynamic Highlighting.
The best paying and most popular in-text advertising network, i have used infolinks for one of my blog and the result i had was good but i didn't continue with that blog due to some personal issues. Infolinks will find some advertising keywords from your blog that are not linked and makes it a advertising link and when a visitor puts his cursor near to these words a pop up will appear and when he click on it, you will earn for it.
Its also possible to use infolinks along with other networks like Adbrite and Bidvertiser since it won't affect their image, text or banner ads.
An eCPM network that is better for sites having good traffic, i use Smowtion in this blog and according to me its giving me a good revenue as per the traffic i get. They have a great collection of image, animated banners and pop unders, their new ad format is the slider which is a good method to earn more, these sliders are available in many formats so you can use it without making your visitors fed up. Their minimum payout is $100 and they pay 60% of the total revenue. There are three payment methods in Smowtion they are ATM, Check or Pay Pal account.

Make Your Site Load Fast - 5 Beginner TipsAn important factor that determines the popularity of a website is its loading time. If your site has good content but takes a lot of time to load, the visitors won't make use of your site since they don't want to waste their time, which is the most valuable thing in this busy world. So the visitors may move to other sites that offer the same services you may be offering. Remember while surfing the web no one likes to be patient, in web the site which gives the result very fast has the dominance. Below i'm giving some solid tips which may help you to make your site or blog load faster than ever.
Test your Present Speed
You can test the loading speed of your site using Google's Web Master tools or by using some sites like Pingdom Tools and WebPagetest. It is better to use this services and to check how fast is your website and if the results say that its taking a lot of time to load, you can rectify those problems.
Every blogger like to add images between their posts, i usually adds 1-3 images in a post, because these images will attract more people also the images related to the post will make the visitors more clear about what we share in the post. But if we use images having high quality it will take more time to load, so it is better to save your images in the type "save for web" so they will be optimized. There are a lot of tools to optimize your images, softwares like RIOT helps us to optimize our high quality images. The best formats for uploading an image to the web are jpeg, png or gif.
Reduce use of Flash
Using more Flash contents will make your websites load slowly. It has been proven that Flash websites take a lot of time to load rather than a HTML site containing Java Scripts and CSS. Due to this reason the number of websites using flash has reduced considerably, now Flash is mainly used by sites which has nothing to share but want to make only the viewers what they are.
Reduce the number of gadgets
There are a lot of useful gadgets that are available in the market for free or for cost but using these gadgets will make your site load slow. Since these gadgets are loaded from different servers, browsers have to collect all of them to load your site fully, so this will make your site a laborious.
Compress CSS and Java Files
Most of the websites contain CSS and Java Scripts, you may be using a lot of plugins that has to be loaded from the java scripts so put your scripts at the bottom of the source page, if it is in the top it may take time to load the main contents of your page and will feel that the site is taking much time to load. But use your CSS lines at the top so the page elements of your site will load first.

Pay per click
In contrast to the generalized portal, which seeks to drive a high volume of traffic to one site, PPC implements the so-called affiliate model, that provides purchase opportunities wherever people may be surfing. It does this by offering financial incentives (in the form of a percentage of revenue) to affiliated partner sites. The affiliates provide purchase-point click-through to the merchant. It is a pay-for-performance model: If an affiliate does not generate sales, it represents no cost to the merchant. Variations include banner exchange, pay-per-click, and revenue sharing programs.
Websites that utilize PPC ads will display an advertisement when a keyword query matches an advertiser's keyword list, or when a content site displays relevant content. Such advertisements are called sponsored links or sponsored ads, and appear adjacent to or above organic results on search engine results pages, or anywhere a web developer chooses on a content site.
Among PPC providers, Google AdWords, Yahoo! Search Marketing, and Microsoft adCenter are the three largest network operators, and all three operate under a bid-based model.
The PPC advertising model is open to abuse through click fraud, although Google and others have implemented automated systems to guard against abusive clicks by competitors or corrupt web developers.
There are two primary models for determining cost per click: flat-rate and bid-based. In both cases the advertiser must consider the potential value of a click from a given source. This value is based on the type of individual the advertiser is expecting to receive as a visitor to his or her website, and what the advertiser can gain from that visit, usually revenue, both in the short term as well as in the long term. As with other forms of advertising targeting is key, and factors that often play into PPC campaigns include the target's interest (often defined by a search term they have entered into a search engine, or the content of a page that they are browsing), intent (e.g., to purchase or not), location (for geo targeting), and the day and time that they are browsing.

Referral marketing takes word of mouth from the spontaneous situation to one where maximum referrals are generated.
Online referral marketing, using digital marketing as a platform, is the internet based approach to traditional referral marketing. Given the advances in tracking customer behavior online through the use of web browser cookies, online referral marketing provides a high degree of tracking and accountability.
A study conducted by the Goethe University Frankfurt and the University of Pennsylvania, on referral programs and customer value which followed the customer referral program of a German bank that paid customers 25 euro for bringing in a new customer, was released in July 2010. According to Professor Van den Bulte, this is the first ever study published on the financial evaluation of customer referral programs. The study found that referred customers were both more profitable and loyal than normal customers. Referred customers had a higher contribution margin, a higher retention rate and were more valuable in both the short and long run.
On whether customer referral programs are worth the cost, the study says that it records "a positive value differential, both in the short term and long term, between customers acquired through a referral program and other customers. Importantly, this value differential is larger than the referral fee. Hence, referral programs can indeed pay off."

Social media marketing programs usually center on efforts to create content that attracts attention and encourages readers to share it with their social networks. A corporate message spreads from user to user and presumably resonates because it appears to come from a trusted, third-party source, as opposed to the brand or company itself. Hence, this form of marketing is driven by word-of-mouth, meaning it results in earned media rather than paid media.
Social media has become a platform that is easily accessible to anyone with internet access. Increased communication for organizations fosters brand awareness and often, improved customer service. Additionally, social media serves as a relatively inexpensive platform for organizations to implement marketing campaigns.
Social networking websites allow individuals to interact with one another and build relationships. When products or companies join those sites, people can interact with the product or company. That interaction feels personal to users because of their previous experiences with social networking site interactions.
Social networking sites and blogs allow individual followers to “retweet” or “repost” comments made by the product being promoted. By repeating the message, all of the users connections are able to see the message, therefore reaching more people. Social networking sites act as word of mouth. Because the information about the product is being put out there and is getting repeated, more traffic is brought to the product/company.
Through social networking sites, products/companies can have conversations and interactions with individual followers. This personal interaction can instill a feeling of loyalty into followers and potential customers. Also, by choosing whom to follow on these sites, products can reach a very narrow target audience.

As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content and HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic.
The acronym "SEOs" can refer to "search engine optimizers," a term adopted by an industry of consultants who carry out optimization projects on behalf of clients, and by employees who perform SEO services in-house. Search engine optimizers may offer SEO as a stand-alone service or as a part of a broader marketing campaign. Because effective SEO may require changes to the HTML source code of a site and site content, SEO tactics may be incorporated into website development and design. The term "search engine friendly" may be used to describe website designs, menus, content management systems, images, videos, shopping carts, and other elements that have been optimized for the purpose of search engine exposure.
As a marketing strategySEO is not an appropriate strategy for every website, and other Internet marketing strategies can be more effective, depending on the site operator's goals. A successful Internet marketing campaign may also depend upon building high quality web pages to engage and persuade, setting up analytics programs to enable site owners to measure results, and improving a site's conversion rate.
SEO may generate an adequate return on investment. However, search engines are not paid for organic search traffic, their algorithms change, and there are no guarantees of continued referrals. Due to this lack of guarantees and certainty, a business that relies heavily on search engine traffic can suffer major losses if the search engines stop sending visitors. Search engines can change their algorithms, impacting a website's placement, possibly resulting in a serious loss of traffic. According to Google's CEO, Erick Schmidt, in 2010, Google made over 500 algorithm changes - almost 1.5 per day. It is considered wise business practice for website operators to liberate themselves from dependence on search engine traffic. Seomoz.org has suggested that "search marketers, in a twist of irony, receive a very small share of their traffic from search engines." Instead, their main sources of traffic are links from other websites.
