Making Money from Your Website:

This is possible but it takes a lot of work initially if it’s going to take off. You may build a beautiful website but unfortunately the ‘if you build it they will come’ thing doesn’t work here! Getting listed in the main search engines is important. You will need to get lots of other sites linking to you to rank well in searches – we do have a ‘readers sites’ section on our links page – if you have a site let us know! A great webhost is who sell domains cheaply (free website addresses do not do so well in the search engines), have hosting packages starting at about £2 a month though for about £5 you can have as many domains as you like hosted on the same package – they also have a free website-creator so even if you don’t know html you can build a good site.

There are some good affiliate sites that have many different advertisers to choose from:
