There are millions of websites on the Internet and many of them generate some kind of income. Here are some more ideas about websites that you can set up that will help you earn money online:
Have you ever wondered where is the best place to submit your newly written, quality articles? There are many bookmarking sites to choose from, and we should not just submit our articles to random websites. As most bookmarking sites have no-follow policy, your blog will not get a free backlink to your site. However, submitting your published posts to them will still benefit your website a lot, because it will attract more traffic. Here is the list of 10 largest bookmarking sites according to the number of readers:
Before submitting an article it is important to know in what kind of topics a bookmarking site specializes in. It was interesting for me to learn that Propeller focuses more on news and politics, whereas Slashdot is geared more towards Web developers. You should not try not to submit, for example, a cooking article to a technology site, as it will not be considered the right thing to do according to general etiquette. As far as I know, there is no limit how many pages you can submit; however, remember to only submit articles that you think will be of interest to other Internet users.
Many bloggers wonder whether it is worth submitting their articles to bookmarking sites, but the truth is that there are various advantages. It is a sure way to gain exposure and this way have a chance to obtain new readers. Your blog will certainly be more popular after submitting your posts to bookmarking sites.
The abbreviation of the World Wide Web is www. People who were responsible for creating the term World Wide Web were probably not aware that the abbreviation www would be pronounced millions of times per day. When you think about it, www takes a long time to pronounce and some argued that it is the longest possible three-letter string to pronounce. Some even said that it takes a longer time to pronounce compared to what it stands for. When you think about it, “double-u-double-u-double-u” might actually take longer to pronounce compared to “World Wide Web”. Will there ever come a shortened version? It is hard to say, but in other languages pronouncing www is not that bad, so I guess that only the English speaking world has this problem.
