For example, my Quicken ad is on the page where I discuss how I use Quicken, a link to Amazon is on the page where I have reviewed Jim Cramer’s Real Money, and a new site that I found, that offers coupons to major stores is on this page as well as on the article, “Getting More Value Out of what You Buy.” I chose to place my ads that way because I want them to really be a natural fit with my content; I don’t just want the site to become a big advertising space. Also, I do not want to spend a ton of time on affiliations: I want to spend time on content and traffic. The affiliations are not hard once you get the hang of it.I feel like it is the content that should count the most. I have not only seen that a number of times written by people with far more experience, but i have found that wasting my time playing with things that take a lot of work to learn have not paid off as much as my plain old common sense approach to the site: keep it going, nurture it, add to it, and fix it up all the time. The traffic will come.
