Does your 404 error page make you money?

Have you ever visited a website, but typed in the wrong url after the domain name? What did you see?
Chances are you saw a generic page that said something like; "The page cannot be displayed," or "Not Found," or "The requested URL was not found on this server." This is what is more commonly known as the 404 Error Page. It's the page that shows up by default when you'accidentally' type in the address of the page you are looking for on a website incorrectly.

Now, in many cases, it truly happens by mistake. However, in many other instances, people end up on this page because they are snooping around trying to look for your download page or thank you page without having to pay or opt-in. Kind of shady, but people do it. Why not capitalize on it whether they are doing it purposely or they are truly ending up there by accident.

If you have your own website and it gets traffic, some of your visitors are ending up on that page. Now, if they are seeing the generic message that their browser shows them when it happens, then you are not making good use of your web real estate:

Every page of your website can put money in your pocket. Even your 404 error page. You can customize that page just like any other page on your website. Some ideas to utilize on that page include:
-Making an special offer at a discounted price.
-Having it be a squeeze page.
-Making it an Adsense page.
-Redirecting it to a related affiliate product.

Those are just a few of the many different, yet profitable types of ways you can make good use of your 404 error page. It won't make you rich, but it definitely will put some extra money in your account. Maybe it will help you payone of your bills, or you can just reinvest it into your business.

Either way, if you don't customize this page, you can be leaving money on the table. Having something for your visitors to see that end up on that page is extremely more beneficial to you then not having anything on that page. Here's to making good use of every page on your website:

That's exactly the challenge overcome by a remarkable new Talking Ebook from my friends, Michael Green and Peter Twist. It's called: 'How To Profit From Your Diary', and it shows you how to take your humble diary, be it paper-based or on your computer and turn it into the

Product Review: Russell Brunson's LinkBrander

Here's a (free) traffic generating tool that I can recommend without hesitation. Not only is it free to use, but LinkBrander does also a great job shortening long URL's. Even if you had to shell out money it would be well worth it.

The first thing I did after downloading LinkBrander was convert all my long affiliate links into short links. Before doing this all my links looked something like:

Not only did I feel this type of link looked unprofessional but I never liked having my affiliate I.D. so exposed. It's just an open invitation for commission stealing.Now all my links look something like this:

Definitely more cool. And notice my affiliate I.D. is no longer exposed. But that is just one of the many benefits. In return, LinkBrander places a small ad with a link inside, sitting on the bottom or top of my web page.

It is noticeable, yes, but unobtrusive and it certainly does not interfere with the rest of my page. I don't mind this at all, particularly because I know that every time someone clicks on my site and an ad like that appears, I'm earning advertising credits.

In return for providing that small bit of virtual real estate, I receive the same courtesy from other LinkBrander members.

Since I joined LinkBrander, I have encouraged many business friends and subscribers to also sign up for an account,and as a result, I have multiplied my advertising credits seriously.

Right now, my ad link is appearing thousand of times on different LinkBrander member web sites all over the Internet. The traffic I am receiving as a result of this exposure I don't have to pay for... and it involves no hassles on my part... and my new visitors probably would not have found me any other way.

I can't imagine why any serious marketer would hesitate to download this software.

It costs nothing. It is easy to use. And the software provides a ton of benefits. It is number one on my recommendation list. Check it out for yourself:

And soon your link may be on my web site ;-)
