    I am in the process of developing application with similar functionalities as SeoPressor but with much more features.
    There are 2 ways of monetizing it :
    - Offering it as a free web application. People can use it without having to install wordpress site , they can optimize their on page SEO on my site
    Monetezitation method: Adsense, Clickbank, CPA
    Drawback : Not integrated with your own WP blogs. People have to copy and paste the code into their CMSs or static HTML pages.
    Advantage : Don't require wordpress site.

    - Sell it it as a commercial wordpress plugin, people have to buy for a license
    Drawback : Required wordpress site to install.
    Advantage : fully integrated with wordpress blog.
    What is a better method to make money between those two?If you were me, what route you will choose?

    Thanks a million!

    I guess it depends upon what YOU want. I have noticed there is a lack of technical ability on this board and as such, WordPress solves a slue of problems because it has so many plugins.

    If you give it away free, the only ones who could use it are those with some coding experience and even at that, the coder will also have to know where to put the SEO stuff. (it's simple really)

    So with that.....what do YOU want to do with your app??

    The web app version will be user friendly because the interface is similar to that of wp minus save functionality
