i had read about this on google before i saw this post and i thought it was a good idea, but now i think it's a REALLY good idea.

i'm in the process of starting my online business, i'm getting my paypal, google checkout, etsy, ecrater, etc etc etc all set up and now i'm just deciding on a webhost. i'm basically selling mostly knit accessories for cellphones and ipods, and i may through some handmade craft supplies like polymer buttons and beads and stuff in there too.

my question is, what kind of CONTENT could i include on my website?? and how do you incorporate this content into your listings of products and so on?? i love to write so i think this would be fun, i'm just not sure what i could add. does a blog count maybe? stuff like that? any suggestions would be great!!

You can host your blog content on your site and then everything you write increases your content level.  You could write some simple knitting tutorials for types of items that you don't make, like scarves or something.  This is a great example of someone who does this ina a way that helps her without putting herself out of business by revelaing her secrets.  her detailed tutorials make it very clear how complex the work that she does really is.

Doing a little research on the history, provenance, and sustainability of the supplies that you are using, and posting that info up with interesting facts about, say, spinning, sheep, what-have you.... another great way to build content.

So how well does this work if you have just a content only site? I have a million topics I have wanted to write up and put on a site for ages, just various FYI stuff, and it would be so awesome if I could make it pay!

income from advertising through, say, google ads, is based on click throughs and traffic so it doesn't much matter what your site is.  You can sell advertising directly to advertisers as well.  Again, doesn't much matter.

waaait a minute.... could you do this on just a BLOG? are there blog services out there that will let you put these ads on your blog?

and what exactly are affiliate programs - are they similar/a good idea?

I can say this really works. I have made a total of......$2.72.  Wow!  I've only been working on my site for about a month, so if it keeps getting better, this might build up quite nicely.  It was fairly easy to sign up. 

I don't have a shop on my site yet, so it's totally content.  The thing is, when I signed up last week, it took 2 days for the ads to become tailored to my site.  Then I got a couple clicks.  Today I made $1.  So it seems to be somewhat cumulative. 

Thanks for the tip, Lindsayanne.

Site Build It has a great concept for people who dont know HTML or have alot of high tech skills. I highly recommend it. I am in the middle of moving, so havent had much time to work on my site but if you click on my web site, (not my etsy store) there is  a link at the bottom so you can learn more. Hope this information is helpful to those of you wanting to learn how to have a profitable web site.

I've got a question about this whole subject.  I've actually got quite a bit of content on my site.  How do I go about getting my site out there so people will click?  I have a ton of completely varied subjects that come up in the top five when you search on google.  I should have no problem whatsoever bringing in a diverse audience.  These go from identification of plants to travel to crafts (of course) to cooking.  Where do I go from here in order to draw people in?  It seems like most of my traffic comes from Craftster, and I would like to mix it up a bit.
