Monetizing Wordpress #4 - Paid Traffic


With the advent of blogging, there has evolved different ways to monetize your website. We explore a few ways to make money on the internet using a simple Wordpress site. With this lesson we will explore paid traffic sources and how it can increase your financial bottom line.


This is the last and most important lesson on monetizing your Wordpress website. When a person creates a website they start with enthusiasm and after a while they find that they are writing to no one but a field of crickets chirping. All of your work in the previous lessons will be a waste unless you have visitors to click on your ads and sell them things. This is where you can give up or start buying traffic to get visitors!

Remember: Traffic is key!

Buying traffic and profiting from it is very, very exciting. It's not easy, but once
you manage to learn how to do it, your earnings have no limit.
