Many people want to make money on the Internet but don’t know how. The problem is, not only do people not know the types of web sites to make money, they also don’t know the different ways they can make money. Here’s a guide to the different sources of income available on the web.

First, general advertisements. Services like Google AdSense and Yahoo Ads allow you to put ads on your site that will be seen by every visitor. If visitors click on these ads, you will be given a piece of the payout to the service you are using. This payout can range from 10 cents a click to as much as several dollars.

The next possible outlet is context ads. These ads, available from a variety of companies, place ads in the actual text of your articles. You likely have seen them on sites you visit where you will notice that hovering over a link on the page will generate a preview of a different site to load. These links are actually ads, which, when clicked by visitors, will give you a small payout.

Finally, affiliate programs can serve as a great revenue stream as well. By doing deals with sites like Amazon, Ticketmaster or more, you can sell other people’s products to make money yourself. Think of yourself as a salesman, trying to pitch people’s products in order to generate revenue. There are tons of sites that allow you to do this on the web so give them a shot and see what works for you.

Overall, there are tons of ways to make money on the Internet, it’s just a matter of finding the one that works for you and running with it.
