Earn money, get more visitors with your site’s toolbar

James Ryan Jonas

We recently noticed that a lot our of visitors are coming to the site using Conduit Search. Curious, I researched what Conduit is and apparently, one can create a toolbar for free with it. A toolbar is a group of icons on top of one’s browser that provides a shortcut to a site or blog.

How does one benefit from the toolbar? The toolbar provides an easy way for a visitor to visit his or her favorite blog or site. With just one click, the visitor can immediately access a site or read real-time content from a blog.

The good thing about the Conduit toolbar is that it is easily customizable and the options for the toolbar are virtually limitless. You can add your own links, have a message that instantly appears on your toolbar, and even deliver real-time RSS content to those who downloaded your toolbar.

Look at the PMT Toolbar we created.

It has our own branded logo, a search engine powered by Google, and shortcut links to popular areas on the PinoyMoneyTalk.com site, such as the blog, the PMT Forum, and even the options “Unread Forum Posts” and “New Replies to Posts” in the PMT Forum. These surely are useful links for most PMT members.

What’s more interesting is that Conduit provides a way for toolbar owners to make money. For every installation of the toolbar, the toolbar owner earns a certain amount depending on the profile of the person who downloaded.

A week after we created the PMT Toolbar, we already had 30 installations which gave us $5.00 of income.

Awesome, right?

If you want to create your own site or blog toolbar, head off to Conduit.com. To download the PMT Toolbar, click here.
