I was reading Technology Evangelist and had an ‘aha’ moment when I read these lines:
Digg users don’t click ads. Why does this matter? Because Digg users are sophisticated web users.
As more web users become as sophisticated as today’s Digg users, click through rates will plummet.
Read the whole article for the context, but the gist is that when Digg visitors come to your site, your CTR drops a great deal (he mentioned as much as 75%). If web savvy users don’t click ads, what happens when the percentage of web users who are savvy gets bigger? What happens when the non-web savvy spend time online and get savvy?
Internet has created many opportunities for people to earn money off of it. An affiliate program is the simplest way of cashing in money. Within six months time one can reach up to a hundred dollars per month given that some time is spent on the seo of the site. Even the best hosting packages are easily affordable with that sort of earnings. The sites can be hosted on dedicated web server once it grows to the adequate size. And to give a fresh look after a few years a web designer can be hired to create professional website templates.
