Any here maken money from a popular site/blog via advertising? Can it be done or does one need millions of hits + ad-spam overload to make more than 20 cents...?
i have a friend that started a popular food blog - on the order of 100,000 unique visitors a month. IIRC he made $60 from advertising for a whole year, including kickbacks from amazon referral links and banner ad clicks.
They obviously aren't organising advertising themselves, or don't know how to sell the site.
My boss made a couple of phone calls and made over $5,000 for advertising on a website targeted to a membership base of about 5,000.
If you have sales skills and the right business contacts you can make a genuinely good earning – provided the site you create is well done, reasonably focused and has enough content to keep visitors returning frequently.
