DIY website help

2089 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Special K
Hey guys This summer I will be working on a DIY homesteading website and have decided that i am not going to be using adsense for my site. I need help thinking of advertisers who might be interested in helping me finance this project. i will be doing a lot of gardening and self sufficiency projects. So far i have thought of home depot, Lowes, Osh, maybe some sort of solar providers, and seed and livestock catalogs. any suggestions would be much appreciated

I would recommend going to some of those sites and see who is advertising now. There are several obscure sites that you would never think of on your own that pay good money based on google ranking. Another option is to sell the space to google. They will find the advertisers and you set the parameters as to what type of content you want. I know a few folks who have sold to google and they bring in roughly $700 a month for a page rank of 2.

Wouldn't a page rank of "2" be an almost impossible thing for a new website? My website has been up since 1999 and we have to work, change, and try all types of tricks to keep it on the first page. Every time we think we have it figured out Google changes the way they rank pages.

I agree it would be difficult for a new site. I was suggesting that the folks I know have a page rank of 2. Even with a rank of one (which I think you get just for creating an account with google and submitting your site for the crawlers) you could earn a significant amount of money if you were willing to have some real estate devoted to ads above the fold. Find the balance that works, that's all.

Page Rank 2 is pretty easy to get. Google Page Rank is simply a matter of getting links to your pages and the quality of the pages that link to your pages.

If you get a page with a Page Rank of 3, without many other links on this page, it will likely give your page a Page Rank of 2 all by itself.

However, Page Rank is only one of many criteria that Google considers when it ranks pages in the search results. And Page Rank has NOTHING to do with how much anyone will pay you. The exception is, other webmasters that want links from pages with good Page Rank will pay, but Google frowns on this.

If you want to increase your Page Rank, you'll need to get more links to your pages, the higher quality the better.

I suggest you reconsider not having Google Adsense on your pages, as it's a pretty easy revenue stream. Combine it with Amazon, eBay, etc. But you won't get a major sponsor unless you get lots and lots of traffic.

You can also try www.CJ.com. They may handle Lowes or Home Depot? But they won't pay you just for running ads on your site...You'll need to make sales and you'll be paid a commision of the selling price.

PS...You can buy expired or existing domain names with a Page Rank 2 for $50 and up...
