    Are Humor Sites Making Money??

    There seems to be tons and tons of humor sites now, are all still making money like they did in the past? Or has all the comp. and internet industry falling made humor webbing a bad idea?

    since the industry fall a lot is hard to make some money this days without putting your own money and then making some revenue. But I guess yes, sites could win money

    Brian, share some info with us?

    How long have you been at it? How many subscribers and what is monthly income? WHere does revenue come from? Affiliates or popups or banners ? What is domain name ?

    The world can never have too many joke sites.

    I run a couple of humor sites as well, and make pretty decent money. I have close to 200K subscribers, have been doing it for 1.5 years. My sites are
    Http://www.medialunchbox.com
    and
    http://www.jokemania.com
    and I have one more entertainment site underconstruction that should be up and ready to go by the weekend.
    To run both of these sites and their newsletters probably takes less than 30 minutes a day to do.

    I used to have one, but I sold it a few months ago. It made me some good money, and it can up quite a bit if you reinvest it wisely.

    luchazard - Didn't you used to own www.crazedhumor.com ?

    SWD - I didn't like all the popups, but I did click on the link to PrankPlace.com and may sign up as an affiliate. If I return without going to your site first, do you still get affiliate credit? How are they about paying ?

    Oh yeah - very nice site. I really liked about 70% of your pics, rest were cute. Nothing I have seen before.

    I'll go ahead and answer this for you, and SWD can add in what he wants.

    PrankPlace are very nice people, and they pay like clockwork by PayPal (for me at least). Steve (the owner) will give you a prize for a contest/giveaway, and all he asks for is a link back to his site. Very nice people...

    first of all wich popups are you referring to? I only have 1 popup that should popup you once in 24 hours.. and second PrankPlace is really good, the owner Steve is a really nice person and they always pay on time.

    http://www.myaffiliateprogram.com/u/.../up.asp?i=1099

    there is my referrer link! please use it!

    p.s: where are you seeing this popups?

    I can't even get to your site right now. But such is life when Sprint manages all tehInternet connections...

    I will try to see if I can visit later and duplicate popups. If I remember, I got a series of four of them, they may have cascaded from the first popup when I closed it.
