16. How to leverage your higher traffic flow for higher profits
After you have followed the steps in this guide and attained a high ranking in the search engines, you will soon have a large amount of traffic flow to your site. Now is the time to sell, sell, sell!

But the products and services that you offer on your website aren't the only avenues to profit available to you. Your website traffic itself can be an excellent source of revenue. You can use your site to:

Sell banner or text ads to other businesses.

Sell advertising in a newsletter or Ezine.

Earn commissions through affiliate links and banners.

An excellent way to earn cash from your website is to sign up with Fastclick. They have lots of options for displaying high-paying ads on your site, including leaderboards, banners, popunders, and several other types of ads.

And best of all, Fastclick pays you, the publisher, 65% of the fees paid by the advertisers. You can't lose with this one!

A new advertising vehicle that works very well for sites with lots of content is Google Adsense. All you have to do is apply for an Adsense account with Google.

They'll review your site, and if accepted, you just add a short snippet of code (provided by Google) to your site where you want the ads to appear.

Google will then spider your page(s) and start serving relevant ads in short order. No keywords to fool with! All you do is add the code to your pages and Google does the rest.

Then when a visitor comes to your site, she'll see the Google ads. If she clicks on one, you'll get a commission. It's really that simple!

If you sign up with Adsense, be sure to read the directions, user agreement, and FAQs carefully so that you can be sure that you're in compliance with their rules. You can even use Fastclick popunders in conjunction with Google AdSense to double your earnings potential!

19. FFA pages: Why you should avoid them
FFAs are basically web pages where anyone can submit the URL for his website for free (hence the term Free-For-All). The web is home to thousands upon thousands of FFA pages.

FFAs may sound like a great way to get lots of free traffic to your site, but you should avoid these pages at all cost.

Why? Several reasons:

1. They are almost useless as a source of traffic. Very few people searching for a topic on the web will use an FFA page. Instead they will use a search engine or directory.

Think about it for a moment. Where do you go when you want to find something on the web? If you're like most web surfers, you use Google, Yahoo, MSN Search, AOL Search, etc.

FFA pages are usually just a long list of unrelated and unorganized URLs which makes finding what you're looking for virtually impossible.

2. Most FFA pages require you to register with your email address before you are allowed to add your link. The owners of the pages then use the email address that you registered with in order to send you loads of Spam.

Even worse, they will often sell your email address to other Spammers. If you choose to use FFA pages, prepare to receive a never-ending flood of SPAM in your email inbox.

3. Using FFAs can lead to your site being banned from Google's search engine index. Many FFA pages require a reciprocal link from your site to theirs before allowing you to place your link.

Google considers most FFA pages to be link farms, and we have already learned what Google thinks of link farms!

By using the information contained in this SEO guide, you will have your site listed in the Google and Yahoo search results within 6 weeks, and quite possibly on the first page of the listings within 60 days. All it takes is determination, an open mind, and a little hard work. But the benefits will be well worth the effort!

The techniques listed in this guide are conservative in nature, so you needn't fear incurring a future penalty by using them. Leave the shady tactics like hidden text and keyword stuffing to the Spammers. Their sites may outrank yours for a short time, but when (not if) they're caught your site will be at the top of the SERPS while theirs fall by the wayside.

And remember, search engine optimization (SEO) techniques aren't static. The search engines are constantly changing their algorithms. What works for good placement today could send you plummeting to the depths of the SERPS next month (or even cause your site to incur a penalty). Stay up-to date on all the changes in the SEO world and continue tweaking your site accordingly.

Here are a few excellent resources that we use every day:
Google News forum at WebmasterWorld - A great source for up-to-the-minute SEO information. It's free, and the experts that participate there are simply amazing! Read the posts, ask questions, and absorb the vast amount of SEO information available there.

A few hours a week spent in the WebmasterWorld Forums can reap dividends that you simply can't purchase at any price.

(And in case you're wondering, I have no "ties" to the site, just an amazing fascination and appreciation for the amount and quality of the information available there.)

SiteProNews - Get the very best up-to-date webmaster news and information in your inbox every day! Every issue of their newsletter has a useful article and tons of information. Highly recommended for keeping up to date on everything webmaster related!

Webmaster-Talk Forums - Visit the Webmaster-Talk.com forums and discuss website design, coding, graphics, affiliate programs and more!
Good luck with your web based business!


Conclusion As I have said so many times before, search engine optimization and positioning is a science as well as an art. What really counts are the results you will get from your efforts. If you carefully implement all the tips and techniques that are in this article, your website should rank well in the search engines and your Web-based business should be a success.
