You know how Xanga puts all those annoying ads on your page? And you post great stuff that lots of people come and read? And they see all those ads?
So, you drive the traffic to the site, and Xanga gets the ad revenue.
Now, you might argue that you get plenty of value in the form of fun and friendship in the Xanga community. That’s how I see it.
But if you wanted to try a site where the poster gets part of the revenue generated by their own content, there are such places.*
Here’s a post I put up. Go click on some ads so I make a few pennies! Or leave a comment so I know you were there. It’s not friendly like this place.
*Haven’t made a dime yet. I’ll keep you posted, as it were.
Dudes! I made 42 cents today! But Google Adsense won’t send me a check ’til I get to $100. Keep clicking!
