Then write quality search engine optimized content for each category, so that you can get traffic from search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.
The final step in your plan of action is to sell advertising space to advertisers. Selling advertising space to advertisers will enable you to earn money through your website.

Lastly, you can monetize your website with Google Adsense or Adbrite and get paid for people clicking on your ads.
