- Monetize by Pay Per Impression/Pay Per Click programs and better ranking against each website visitor
AdSense is perhaps the most popular and rewarding pay per impression/pay per click program, but there are other options as well in case not approved for AdSense or intend to try something different. Through AdSense, you are paid for both impressions (that is if anyone just visits the page of the website where ad appears without clicking) as well clicks.
Getting more visitors to your website will help boost your Google Analytics (GA) record. It is recommended that soon after launching your website, you connect the same with Google Analytics (again perhaps the most popular free analytics software in the market).
SEO products like Semrush too comes up with a score based on the activities on your website on World Wide Web. However, such products need to comply with various privacy regulations and are anonymized/approximated. While Google Analytics records of your connected website are accessible just to you (and the ones you opt to share with), the likes of Semrush Authority Score, Google PageRank, Ahrefs Domain Rating are in public domain and can be accessed by anyone.
So the more your website gets audience, the better it ranks. This can be termed as an asset. In case you decide to sell your domain name/website, you should fetch higher value based on the rankings. As a first layer of monetization, you get reward for each impression and click while adding asset value in terms of better rankings.
2. Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is about adding affiliate links, banners on your website that when clicked and sale made, you are rewarded.
3. Get paid for providing your own services
If you are a service provider like website designer, you can also include an option to provide your own services by getting leads through say Hire Us page.
The Best Case
In the best case, you can have a visitor landing on your website. You are paid for impression generated as he or she lands into the first page. More pages visited, more impressions. If at anytime a click made to the ads, you are paid for pay per click.
Next, if the buyer clicks an affiliate marketing link and buys a product, you earn affiliate commission.
In case the buyer chooses to opt for your services, you also earn a fee for your services.
