    how do i get money from this site

    my site is http://www.freewebspacereview.net.. obvious what the site is for..

    well.. its generates around 100-150 unique visitors a day.. how can I get $ from it?! I placed a CJ banner on every page, but seems not getting any money.. For your opinion, what should I do?

    How much it will be if I want to sell the site??

    You're not making any money from it because you aren't getting any traffic. The two go hand-in-hand. Focus on increasing your readership before you focus on returning a profit. You need one before you can get the other, and I'm sure you know how hard it is to make a profit, even if you do get a lot of traffic. Slapping a banner up there won't return a profit nowadays.

    The problem I see is that there would be no interest by your visitors. Those are are seeking out free webhosts aren't going to sign up for a $20/month plan at FutureQuest through CJ. Why? Because FQ isn't free.

    You'd be hard pressed to find CJ advertisers marketing free webhosting, mainly because theres no money in free stuff.

    If your audience doesn't want to spend money, then affiliate-based (commission-based) advertising is not the game to play.

    Your visitors don't seem to want to spend money, so why don't you get some targeted pay per lead ads? (the ones where the visitor doesn't have to spend any money, just subscribe to somethng or download something or whatever)...

    lirux hit the nail on the head.

    Your visitors are coming to your site to look for "free" webhosting. Offer them ads for "free" stuff.

    P.S. 100-150 unique visitors a day is really not enough to start making any money. It takes time to build a userbase in the online world just like the offline world. I'd work on building your userbase up for at least 6 months (About 1,000 uniques daily) and then start worrying about making money.
