My bike blog is still in development, and I'm still learning WordPress. But are there WordPress Plugins for making money? How about one for a "Donate" button that takes credit cards? If you know of these please mention here!

Previously, I thought about making money off of Youtube videos but my most watched 2 year old video - about 1564 views - made only 3 cents! I wish I could make a 4 million hit video, that probably would bring in the money, but it's so hard to make a catchy video. And then when I watch other people's videos I mostly like to skip the ads unless it's interesting. So it's really hard to make good money off of Google Adsense Youtube videos.

Now, I downloaded a lot of web design pdfs, but my biggest mistake was not marking that special pdf that talked about all the money making ad methods... Gotta search for it...

If you have a money making website, what ad methods do you use to make money? And how profitable has it been?

Check Paypal for the donate button, they will provide you the code and options.

It''s hit and miss, I have had people donate as much as $100 but I'm helping to save them $1000's annually.

If the math you provided adds up even if you got 4,000,000 views on YouTube, you'd only make $7600.

But with a blog on your own, you'd make even less.

The only real way to make money off of blogs is to have a steady but growing readership and to privately sell banner ads that can bring you small but consistent income.

If you're lucky and if you work hard enough, you'll have created a small income to supplement a full time job.

If you're looking to make a living blogging, you'd need to spend at least about 40-50 hours a week for content and marketing to get your base going. Then, if and when you do make money, you'd have to file for self employment taxes which is effectively a third of your income.

I think a lot of people get into blogging (or whatever) to make money and that's the wrong reason to do something. You need to be passionate about whatever it is you're blogging about and then you'll (maybe) get to a point where you'd be able to monetize.

Adult content. That is what will make you money. You want to increase the number of views for your YouTube videos? Put a hot as hell chick on them bikes, have them do a strip-tease even, then watch the counter go up like a horny teenage boy's pecker watching those videos. Of course the thumbnails and key words you'll pick for the videos are very important too.

Affiliate marketing is a very popular practice on the Internet. Under this system you have a merchant that is willing to let other people (the affiliates) sell directly or indirectly its products and services, in exchange for a commission. Sometimes this type of advertising is also called CPA (cost per action) or CPL (cost per lead) based.

Become a web-hosting re-seller. I hear it's difficult to get started, but if you succeed, it is possible to draw residual income each month.
