This project introduces students to monitize their Wordpress website/blog.
Students will have the skills needed to identify proper content writing and images for their blogs. Students will be able to create ads and affiliate offers needed to monitize their blog. Students will also be able to identify paid traffic sources and how drive traffic to their websites.

The assessment will consist of two parts. One part will be a writtencontent for their website where the students will analyze using the online resource MarketMuse.com. The second part the students will be given an Adsense budget of $100 (free Adsense coupon) and see how many visitors click-through to their website. Bonus points will be given to those that actually make money from their website.
Relevant careers would will be in the Computer Science and Programming industry and as a self employed web developer.

This unit is brought to you by Jeffery Newton (CTE) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Team Lead Mina Greas.
