Ad Clicks equal Real Money: But Not Much Work

The Washington Post has an interesting article on Ad clicks…And the secret to financial success is: “The biggest moneymakers tend to be people who started sites to document their passions.” I couldn’t agree more based on what I’ve seen. There will of course always be the exception but it’s easier if there is some congruence in your financial efforts.

Here are a few that caught my eye: Andrew Leyden founded Podcast Directory and now makes $30,000 to $40,000 a year-Interesting that the site is free and readers find the content valuable!

Two twenty year old say the collect $100,000 a month from their site Freeweblayouts. Those pop ups are awfully annoying and they might want to review Google’s terms of service.

A site I’ve talked out before is Seat Guru-Great information, free and very helpful content! Matther Dailmer, 28, brings in $10,000 to $20,000 grand a month for his efforts. I use this site all the time in my travels!

Then there is Patent Storm which allows you to search patent records-very helpful. He gets 10,000 hits a day but doesn’t talk cash.

These are all great ideas for generating cash flow-they are so good that I am submitting all these ideas, as mine, to the Cash Flow Challenge 🙂

    I completely agree with you. Successful blogs not only have well written, thoughtful and original content but an author who loves what they do. If you really enjoy writing it shines through in the posts you make. No big secret there.
