Not every new site that is created is solely created just for money. However, many of them are. That being said there are several factors that come into play that decide how much any of these 1.2 billion websites actually make.
There is a large difference in how much each website can make.
Most of this depends on several things.
1.Does the web site sale any products or services?
2.Does the web site have affiliate sales?
3.Does the web site generate revenue from ads?
After this, we must ask; does the website owner put in effort into seo, marketing and sales? How much effort does he put into it? Does he have a hundred blog posts or does he have a total of three blog posts?
Does he have a nice design or did he put minimal effort into that? Did the owner focus on his website speed, onsite, offsite seo, social media marketing, gorilla marketing, ads etc? How many products are for sale? How many services does he sell? How much are these products and services priced at?
Depending on the answers to the questions above, the website owner could make a few dollars a month or several hundred thousand a year, and in some cases even more.
Some websites easily make 10k or 20k a month from ads just from the sheer amount of traffic on their website.
To make money from a website's content. The owner has to monetize the site or build out products to generate income. What normally happens is companies post ads on their websites to generate income from each user who clicks the ads.
The more traffic the website gets the more it makes from the ads. This is why content is king and why some websites have so many blog posts. Depending on the ad company you can get anywhere from 10 to 50 dollars per thousand views. A website that gets a thousand views a month could easily earn 500 a month or more depending on the ad agency the owner goes with. Bigger sites that are getting 100k users a month can generate about 7-10k a month depending on the niche.
Website Affiliate marketing
Websites can also make money from Affiliate marketing. When a website has a ton of blog posts with lots of traffic they can generally benefit from advertising affiliate products.
Different affiliate products pay different amounts and different affiliate companies pay differently also. For example amazon’s affiliate program might pay you 15 dollars for selling three dog treats on your website, whereas click bank will pay you 200 or more depending on the item. This brings us back to the niche also. Some niche’s just have better affiliate programs.
You can make lots of money with affiliate marketing especially if you have tons of affiliate products and tons of website users. Many Affiliate marketings are making 6 figures year after year.
