    im new to this and have a serious question which most people probably wanna know.
    lets say you have a general site kinda like this one.
    but its free to join and post.
    i know you can charge for banner ads but do you make money off of the actual amount of people who visit the site everyday(even the regulars?)
    other then that and maybe doing a private section and charge to get in there how do u make money?

    thanks and please be serious about this.

    so the only way is with banner ads and charging to get on site?
    it would be like an information site about a certain product.
    and i will have info for the products in all areas and states with the local places that carry it.

    Use Adsense. http://adsense.google.com

    Basically, you get paid for however many times visitors click on your ads.

    Or I guess you could try to sell ad space to the local businesses you are listing? :dunno:

    well that is what i was thinking is to charge like $10 mo to have there business advertised on the site. they will be in there state cat and have some type of inventory of the product listed. so that way people looking for that products knows where to get it and if its in stock.
    now about the adsense. how does that work?
    i get paid for howmany times ppl click on the ads posted on my site? like if the business wanted an ad and if someone clicks it i get paid?

    No, Google gives you an HTML code to put on your site. The HTML code produces ads supplied by Google that are relevant to your site's content.

    Depends on what your market is.

    Definitely you could use things like Adsense/Adbright etc. theres a myriad of different ones out there you could try.

    Another way is to get into affiliate marketing, basically marketing a product for someone for a percentage/commision of what they spend.

    Membership sites is another one, but requires you to have enough authority in your field in order for members to sign-up and think as your website as valuable.

    Flipping websites, basically setting up websites, drive steady traffic to them and then sell them off.

    Those are just some of the idea's you could look into, just don't think that it is a get-rich-quick scheme. Your earnings depend on how much time and knowledge your putting into it.

    For OT, they have memberships and paid stickys... most forums stick to Adsense or some other type of advertising
