    I want to make some websites, but I want to make a little money to at least cover the hosting of the site and domain name, do you guys make money from your site, or sites? How much can I expect?

    You've got to spend money to make money.

    It's easy to make money (Like a few cents), but to make alot of money requires a lot of time, effort and planning. I can only speak for PPC advertising but you need a website where the subject has a good cost per click. However these sorts of sites are very competitive and it takes time to get enough visitors to your site to make it worth your while. It won't make you a millionaire over night.

    ROFL is right. it takes money to make money. You will probably lose money for about six months to a year. but if you get it right, you can probably make it a living. :o

    I've made $0.43 since I first went live Jan '08.

    But then again, I'm not in it for the money. Obviously. :o

    yup. i go around buying already popular domain names with 'the' appended to the front. then i just copy content from the original website and put it on my 'the' version.

    edit- i forgot to mention, to attract users to my site i put out crazy expensive promotional contests. like post 500 posts on my site and you get a 50mb flash drive!!

    I make all mine through donations. Currently pulling in between $300-$400 per month. Hoping that with the next version and new premium plan I can start to bring in a few thousand.
