Does too much advertising have a negative impact on your chances of making money on the Internet?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

If you want to start making money on the internet, you will surely be tempted to add as many ads as you can. We are sure that you already noticed some web sites that have many pop-ups, in-layer ads, a ton of ad banners and links all over the place that can bring in affiliate commissions for the webmaster. You might think that these sites are making a lot of money but this is not the case. In fact, they are minimizing the money potential that their site has because of one really simple reason: most visitors hate this and will end up leaving the site before seeing what it really offers.

The best affiliate marketers will tell you that you have to find your best recipe when thinking about how much advertising to include. A safe bet is adding 3 PPC based banners and around 5 affiliate links inside the articles present on your site. You can also include another affiliate marketing based banner at the end of the posts. This mix is more than enough and If you want more, try adding a layer ad that allows the visitor to close it immediately if he/she is not interested in what is presented.
