This Website Answers the Question:

How Much Money Can You Make With A Website?

This website is a no nonsense, no hype, honest account of how it makes money online. Most web sites about 'making money online' are just trying to sell you something without giving you any real information - pages are stuffed with claims about how you can become rich with 'quick' and 'easy' methods. Of course there are no fast and easy ways of making money– making money online is no different than making money offline – it takes time and work is required.

Even with all the 'get rich quick' websites out there it is very hard for a beginner to find an honest answer to the question - how do websites make money?

This website is just the facts. It attempts to make money by: Advertising, Affiliate Sales and Product Sales – the most common methods of making money online with a website. All the results are posted using tables, graphs and commentary.

This website does not just show you how much money it is making, but also how much work it was to make the money. All claims about what makes the most money and how much work is involved are backed by real data. Data that you can use to make your own conclusions.

Do websites make money?  Yes, this website proves that it is possible.  But it also proves that it is not quick or easy.  This should not be a surprise to anybody who is serious about having a successful long term online business.

How to Make Money With A Website - By Example

This site does not claim that it is easy to make money with a website - it claims that it is possible.  I knew almost nothing about websites when I started in January 2009.  But a lot has happened since then - the complete history of this website.  This website has gone through a trial by fire. It has been burnt a few times but not reduced to ashes.  Setbacks and disappointments are an education.

Everyday this website becomes better.  Everyday this website becomes better at helping you. 

Using itself as an example it answers the questions: how much money can be made, how long does it take and how much work is it?

This site was created so that you can see how websites make money, how long it takes to build a website, how long it takes to make money, how traffic increases over time, how the type of visitors change, why most people quit after around 5 months, why you need to make it to month 18.

Avoid this website's mistakes and follow its successes - you learn by example.

My name is Roman and I want to provide you with an honest account of what it takes to make money with a website.

When I started this website in January 2009, I thought I would be rich by May.  I was wrong - really wrong. 

At the beginning I did not know anything about websites, SEO, blogs, and how long it takes to make money with a website.

Since then I have learned a lot. By revealing my journey I hope this website will help prepare you for yours .
