Earning Fortunes – One Click at a Time

Posted By Darren Rowse 29th of July 2006 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

MSNBC has a ‘nice’ (I call it nice because it’s a fairly shallow, but warm and fuzzy one) article on Publishers making money from contextual advertising and gives some examples of a variety of sites making decent money, one click at a time. I’m always amazed by the diversity of sites out there that make money. This article covers site ranging from services that help scientists and researches find public documents, to one that reviews the best seats on planes, to one that offers free layouts of MySpace users to one that is a directory of podcasts. What a bizarre and wonderful collection of sites making good money from contextual ads.

    the site seatguru was a Google Adsense featured site about a year or so ago.

  3. SeatGuru.com was also featured in the Fortune magazine piece that had Jon Gales of Mobiletracker.net in it [almost 2 years ago now I think]. I remember well since it was that article that brought me online seeking…well…my fortune.

  4. Hi Darren,

    I love the title of this article. Earning fortunes one click at a time is analogous to filling up the oceans one drop of water at a time. It takes a good sense of determination and you have to be willing to focus on the big picture.

    Hope you will stop by my new forum at http://www.Blog4Bucks.com. It would be great to have your insights there as we work on a cause near to your heart – building a new community of bloggers helping each other make money blogging.

    Thank you.

  5. Darrem, sorry for the second comment, I just noticed the link in the first one won’t work for some reason. Maybe you can fix it if possible and delete this second comment if you like. Thanks.

  7. Darren, I’m a little skeptical of the claim that Freeweblayouts.net collects $100k a month…what do you think?

  8. Hi Darren,

    Seems like the MSNBC link (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14067219/) doesn’t work. I got “Page not found” message then..

  9. yeah – noticed that yesterday. Not sure what they did with it!
