Exclamation 5 Keys To A Profitable Website

There are two types of websites on the Internet - those that make money and those that don't. Obviously, if you're a "for profit" company, you'd rather be in the former category.

So what makes a website profitable?

The article is really worth reading. Thanks a lot. But I think that much also depends on the topic of your site - whether you sell something or just inform about something. Is there any difference in your scheme for various types of sites?

I think the most important thing is we should design our sites for visitors but not only for search engines.

Great article. I believe content is the most important thing. I also believe that you can have great content but if you sales copy isn't good you're not going to be as profitable as you could be.

Thank you, David. It would appear that we're of like minds - at least on this issue.

They may be TRYING to be profitable, but that certainly doesn't mean that they are. I can assure you that most sites don't make enough to cover their hosting fees.

I agree with the article; Content is KING! I also agree that good copy crafted to 'sell'; that is, expose the true benefits of your product or service in a way that connects with the visitor.

The biggest problem that I see is that so many companies put up a site and figure that the work is done. It's just the begining! There's a lot of work to make it a success... but so many think that just because the site is there, the world is supposed to beat a path to your door.

In my decade of experience, it just doesn't work that way.

Can you do well online? Certainly. But there's no get rich quick.

The basic and one of the most important thing in website success is Content and if website content is based on quality, it will get appreciation.
