    Ad Revenue on the Web? No Sure Bet

    SAN FRANCISCO — For anyone with a crazy idea for a Web business, the way to make it pay was once obvious: get a lot of visitors and sell ads. Since 2004, venture investors have put $5.1 billion into 828 Web start-up companies, and most of them are supported by ads, according to the National Venture Capital Association........http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/25/te....html?_r=1&hpw

    My business model is currently 100% advertising.

    However, I am thinking of (in the future) to write a few ebooks related to my topic, advertise them through my site and see how the sales go.

  3. In free-market business, you have to be constantly ready to adapt to market changes and new revenue opportunities.

    You have quite a lot of active websites, can't you do like CNN.Com did with adsense? Contact a PPC company, and tell them you will put their ads on WebsiteA, WebsiteB etc.. if they pay a higher percentage to you as publisher? Maybe they won't allow it then, but heck, you can try it

    What is EPC?
    Evangelical Presbyterian Church


    Or am I being wrong?

    I can push my weight around a bit with The Tech FAQ, but I haven't managed to do that with my "network" of sites yet.

    I agree. I have an idea related to this, and I just need to figure out how to do it right...
