Webmasters & Internet Marketers in my opinion are some of the busiest professionals on the face of the planet. With millions of websites online, making sure your website is popular with both search engines and customers can take some time doing.

Ok, it’s a new day. I’m up and the first thing i do is check my emails to see if i have recieved any payments or have any contact request from site members, fellow Webmasters, JV colleagues and generally read any credit mails that i may have.

Next, i start administrative task on all my websites. Task like approving/declining links, articles, listing reviews etc.

Now is time for link building and SEO. I start submitting articles that i have written to article directories “Every internet marketer & webmaster knows that this is one of the most effective ways of getting free traffic to your sites” , then i submit listings to web directories and exchange links with webmasters in my niche via link exchange networking.

I check the PR and SERP of my websites and compare them with the competition. There are several tools online that i use for SEO like link and keyword analyzers. I continue building links and contacting webmasters for link exchange purposes.

I write ads for my products and services and broadcast them to my optin list, FFA list, safelist and bulkmailer list.

Did i mention that i take a break? well i do. Maybe for an hour or two and all the time i’m thinking of the best ways to increase my PR and ultimately the value of my sites. Yeah, break for an internet marketer & webmaster is time to reflect on what you’ve done so far and how you can improve on the work.

I think of how i’ll feel when my sites hits Google PR 8 or more, i think of all the money that i’ll be making from advertisements, i think of what i’ll do when the value of my sites gets to over USD$ 15,000,000 (Fifteen Million US Dollars). Whoa, a site worth that much? yeah, you bet.

The joy in me is unspeakable, i’ve worked 5 hrs at a stretch but it’s not enough. There’s still a lot of work to do if i’m going to see my dreams come true.

I’m back to work. I check all my email addy’s and start repeating the routine. I do research online ” I mean real research” I gather information material relevant to my business success and store them on my hard drive. I play around with my Linux Box, expecially with the shell and it’s powerful command line. I find this very helpful as i have long realized that the WWW is Unix talking to Unix.

These Linux skills come in handy when i’m working within my Host CPanel. I continue checking out the competition, why do the rank so high? how did the do it? how long did it take?

I spend some time exploring new opportunities and keeping up to speed with the trends with regard to my business empire online. I’m online now for another 5 hrs or more, there’s still so much to do before the day comes to an end, 24 hrs don’t seem to be enough for a day, but the wife get’s upset.

How i hate to upset her. Well, i guess it’s time to call it a day. I’m offline but i have information materials to study and programs to install. I am my business. If i Succeed, my business succeeds. I can’t fail, so i’ll see y’all at the top.

Are you a webmaster who needs funds to keep your website running? Or is your website the only way for you to earn income? Whichever you are, for as long as you are a webmaster or a web publisher and you need cash, affiliate marketing may work well for you. With affiliate marketing, you may get a lot of cash pouring into your bank account easily. And if your website is rich in great contents and you want to earn more profit, why not get into the Google Adsense program as well? Why Affiliate Marketing? Well, simply because affiliate marketing is the easiest and probably the best way to earn profits online, unless otherwise you are a businessman and would rather sell your own products online than advertise other businessman’s products on your site. But even online retailers can benefit from affiliate marketing programs, because affiliate marketing actually works for merchants as well as it works for the affiliates. Affiliate marketing, simply said, is a relationship or agreement made between two websites, with one site being the merchant’s website and the other being the affiliate’s site. In the relationship, the affiliate agrees to let the merchant advertise his products on the affiliate’s site. The merchant, on the other hand, would agree to pay the affiliate in whatever method they have agreed into. This would generally mean easy income for the affiliate, as he would do nothing but place the retailer’s ad on his site. This would also be very beneficial for the merchant, as getting affiliates to advertise their products would be a lot more affordable than hiring an advertising firm to promote their products. There are a variety of methods on how the merchant would compensate the affiliate for his services, and for the webmaster, these methods simply translates to the method by which he would earn easy cash. Among the more common methods of compensation are the pay-per-click method, the pay-per-lead method, and the pay-per-sale method. The pay-per-click method is the method most preferred by affiliates, for their site’s visitor would only have to visit the advertiser’s site for them to gain money. The other two methods, on the other hand, are better preferred by merchants, as they would only have to compensate you if your visitor becomes one of their registrants or if the visitor would actually buy their products. Getting much profit on affiliate marketing programs, however, does not depend so much on the compensation method is it does on the traffic generated by your site. A website that can attract more visitors would generally have the greater chance of profiting in affiliate marketing programs. What about Google Adsense? Google Adsense is actually some sort of an affiliate marketing program. In Google Adsense, Google act as the intermediary between the affiliates and the merchants. The merchant, or the advertiser, would simply sign up with Google and provide the latter with text ads pertaining to their products. These ads, which is actually a link to the advertisers’ website, would then appear on Google searches as well as on the websites owned by the affiliates, or by those webmasters who have signed up with the Google Adsense program. While one can find a lot of similarities between Google Adsense and other affiliate marketing programs, you can also see a lot of differences. In Google Adsense, all the webmaster has to do is place a code on his website and Google takes care of the rest. The ads that Google would place on your site would generally be relevant to the content of your site. This would be advantageous both for you and for the advertiser, as the visitors of your site would more or less be actually interested with the products being advertised. The Google Adsense program compensates the affiliate in a pay-per-click basis. The advertisers would pay Google a certain amount each time their ad on your site is clicked and Google would then forward this amount to you through checks, although only after Google have deducted their share of the amount. Google Adsense checks are usually delivered monthly. Also, the Google Adsense program provides webmasters with a tracking tool that allows you to monitor the earnings you actually get from a certain ad. So, where do all of these lead us to? Where else but to profits, profits and even more profits! Affiliate marketing programs and the Google Adsense program simply work, whether you are the merchant or the affiliate. For the merchant’s side, a lot of money can be saved if advertising effort is concentrated on affiliate marketing rather than on dealing with advertising firms. For the webmaster, you can easily gain a lot of profits just by doing what you do best, and that is by creating websites. And if you combine all your profits from both the Google Adsense program and other affiliate marketing programs, it would surely convert to a larg

Multimedia Flash and other professionally designed templates enable webmasters to select from millions of permutations and combinations without having to approach a web designer.

As website templates provide a readymade and consistent design for each page; they help in binding a website together, giving it uniformity and coherence, and in facilitating smooth browsing. Templates are available with editable and uneditable regions so chances of content getting erased are reduced. An important advantage that website templates offer is the ease with which they can be modified, the HTML and CSS components are not very difficult to master and once the basic website is in place and online, a webmaster can crystallize his concepts and customize the website to suit his business needs by fine tuning the content or adding JavaScript, if required.
