I Made Money With a Free Website!

Last Update: November 26, 2017

Making money with a free website? Go figure! Well, it happened to me. There are numerous blogs on here that encourages the utilization of the free websites available here at Wealthy Affiliate, to make money online. But I think I'm still in a little bit of shock that it actually happened. I've used free websites before but just to experiment with the themes and such and I'd just delete them after.

But one Saturday morning an idea for new site popped into my head. I thought the idea was an interesting one, so I did some research using Jaaxy. Well, the results were good, so I went for it. Even so, I still wasn't sure if I wanted to take it seriously, since it meant research and all that drama. In addition to which, it's not a topic I am overly familiar with and I wasn't sure about the direction I wanted to take the site.

Anyway, that same day I did an article for it. Then I did two more articles. So on this free website, there are just three (3) articles; one written in July, one in August, and one in September. Sounds ridiculous right?!

One of the articles has a video on it and I just recently (like two Fridays ago), added it to Bing. But that's about it. It does not have a Facebook Fan Page or anything. All that's there on this site, are the three articles, one video, and some Amazon links. That's it.

So a couple days ago, I thought I'd check out my Amazon account to see if anything was happening. Lo and behold, there was a sale for the very same product that the site is about. I was totally surprised! But it just goes to show, that you CAN make money with a free website.

So be inspired!

It is crazy cool... I was not expecting that at all. But it was a pretty nice surprise. The thing is, the site isn't even indexed in Google.

Good for you! That is amazing, you should blog about this here in WA.

You can make a lot of money that way.

If you include WA links within your blogs and someone clicks it (goes Premium) you do get paid. Ask anyone here.

You could get 'starter' members to join more easily by showing people 'proof'. Anyway sorry for the long reply, I am just so amazed at this.

I am following this journey.

Have a good day.

Hi Nick

I have other premium sites, but I just decided to experiment with this free website. I just didn't think that three articles on a site could result in clicks and an eventual sale.
