The internet is a great place to make money and sometimes that money comes in ways you don’t even realize. The next time you are on your friends blog or the next time you are on that low rent sports page you should take the time to look at the entire page and you might just be finding out that there is more money to be made on that page than you ever thought before.
Most blogs and websites out there don’t operate of their own accord. Sure the content on the site might be that of the blog authors but that doesn’t mean that everything you see is theirs. For instance, all the advertising on the side of the page and underneath the content is all by an ad company. Here’s the way it works in many cases: these sites contact advertising companies about being a part of their network. The ad companies decide if there is enough traffic for them to bother. They agree in many cases and work out a price. Many times it’s a per click price. So for every 1000 page views the ad agency might put out 5 dollars to the owner of the website. This happens and perhaps the web owner is contracted with several different web pages. Then as the clicks come in there is more than just a few networks at work. All of this is working to earn the owner of the website money. Of course there are times when a company will come along and ask to rent out the entire ad space on the site for a flat fee. Say 3 weeks for 2,000 dollars. The fact of the matter is that there is more than enough money to be made online and next time you are on a website you can look and see for yourself.
