It is a fact of life, if you want something to produce good results, a journey towards the goal needs to be designed, planned and executed in a timely and coherent manner. Your online journey is no different.
Specifically speaking, designing a website and maintaining it also follows the three secrets of success:
With these three rules of success, you would be able to design a site that provides you with a constant source of traffic, leading to multiple revenue streams.
Domains get registered in thousands every hour. New websites pop up every few minutes. The cyberspace can be compared to the universe. The blog, networking, online stores, information portal “galaxies” are having new websites (planets) being created every minute. However, most of these websites or planets in the cyberspace are barren from the word “Go”. In the vastness of cyberspace, there lie many wasted websites, devoid of life and activity. The only websites capable of surviving in this space tend to make up a negligible percentage, just like planet earth (the only “known” planet to support life) is just a speck of dust in the whole expense of the universe.

Another aspect of your website maybe an entertainment section. Try to entice the “entertainment seekers” here. The above implementation has just achieved one of your most important goals, a variation of traffic!
Make use of all the space on your website. The free spaces mark the spot…yes, the spot for an online gold mine. Think of the space as a commodity… advertise it, auction it, sell it, bargain it…conduct every trade on your free spaces. Visualize that empty space on your website’s sidebar as a spot earning you $$$ per month.
The moral of the story is don’t register a domain, throw in some articles and Advertisements and wake up next morning expecting a million dollars in your bank account. If you want to earn money in the real world, you need to work. A similar scenario exists for online monetization. Don’t be swayed by the candy wrapped stories of established online entrepreneurs. They are successful either because:
