Your Web Effect

-Where do we aim?
-How do we know what to aim for?
-What do you need to do to make money online?

Measure your own web effect and find out.

How many pages do you view per month?

I probably view around 12,000 pages per month, and that’s working online 8 hours a day.

How much do you spend online per month (not including PPC)?

I spend a lot more online than the average person, but an average person might spend between $500 and $1000 per month.

With those figures we can calculate how much our clicks are worth.

How much are your clicks worth?

Based on the above figures, if I spent the same amount online as an average person, and I viewed 12,000 pages per month, each of my clicks is worth about 4-8 cents.

A great target is to simply neutralize your web effect. Click as many clicks as you receive. Spend as many dollars as you earn.

What is your goal? How much do you want to earn?

An average person might be hoping to earn $2000/month before quitting their full-time job. With that in mind, he/she would need to be generating between 25,000 and 50,000 unique visitors per month to websites they own.

If every time you click on another web page you also write four words to publish on a site of your own, you will be able to generate this amount of traffic in short order.

Beat your own web effect!

When you cross that line, and you are receiving more traffic than you create, you become a positive contributor to the internet. Beating your own web effect is the first step to full time online income.

In the comments tell me – are you web effect neutral?

One thought on “Your Web Effect

  1. Hey Vince,

    great post and very insightful. I never saw it that way to be honest, that you also have to produce 20.000 clicks for a single webmaster to – logically – get those 20.000 clicks in return. Two questions:

    - How did you calculate your average clicks per month?
    - How in the hell do you spend more than 1000 bucks per month online? With spend, do you also calculate how much a click on an advertisement for another site has been worth? That estimation seems a bit high. Maybe that goes for SEOs and web entrepreneurs in general, because of the tools which cost a monthly fee, but I can’t imagine a normal user spending 1000 dollars in a single month. (given that you don’t include the costs per click on an advertisement, that doesn’t lead to a conversion)

    To answer your question: I am almost web effect neutral, given that I subtract clicks on social networks (especially Facebook) because those clicks are worth almost nothing.

    Once again, great point of view.
