There's a lot of different websites that websites can generate money online, but how does your website currently make money? My websites make money from donations, google adsense and viglink. So, how does your website make money?
As of right now, the site I manage doesn't make any money but we are just starting out. It would be nice to start making a little from donations and stuff though to be able to help with the software costs and the hosting costs but I know that is a long way off yet. As the saying goes, you can't make money over night and that is very true. Patience is a virtue and everything comes to those who wait and work hard!
I try not to use advertisements to cover costs and use a mixture of donations and affiliate revenue on projects. People usually don't mind parting with a buck or two each month if they get enough value out of a community. They get a speedy experience as a bonus.
