    I have travel blog. Writing article about places and things to do. Income is coming from adsense and hotelsearch on my website. However my blog is only 6 month old.
    And my first google check is coming

      Hi, My travel site is in my signature below, i have a good base to start a business with over 7000 facebook fan page and decent traffic yet i have only recently tried to start it as a business.

      Not sure what to start with making money have recently added some affiliate links and tour packages. Not making much at the moment but to be honest not really tried till recently, not sure what direction to take.

    I have about 40 or 50. Bought them mainly because I like the domain names. Some content. Make some money from adsense, plus a little from advertisers approaching me directly. I've not really seriously bothered with them so not making much.

    Basically if you want to make money with your travel agency website.
    You need the following:
    - Great Branding
    - Leads
    - Ads
    - Compelling Promotions
    - Attractive Design/Layout

    There's a lot of people out there who can help you create a great travel website that will surely generate money.

    I also have travel websites. You can see the list here in different European locations :
    Europe | Simply Travel Guide

    I am open in quality link exchange or guest posts exchange...

    only related sites to the same location, I am promoting...

    The most money i think comes from direct advertisement and from your own books/guides
    and then from affiliates (Its more easily to sell $7 eBook rather than $400 flight).

    As i said there are many methods to generate income from your travel blog.

    Make your own guide and sell it via your website (create also kindle version and sell it via amazon)
    Hotels, Flights, Cars, Tours Packages ...
    Think about insurance and outdoor equipment
    Search in amazon for gadgets and travel accessories
    Make direct advertisement (banners, Text links, widgets with your hotels, restaurants, business in your area)
    Built an email list and send offers (hotels, flights, car rental, coupons for restaurants/bars/cafes tour packages etc..)
    Write sponsored articles
    You can also built a membership site and provide consultancy/experience about your destination.
    .
    .
    .

    In my opinion: I'm never go for general travel website. Go specific and provide high value about your destination. I don't want to built a travel blog about Europe or Italy.
    I want to be specific, and write about Skyros or Hallstatt.

    Make an awesome and attractive website full of content and the rest will come

    Don't forget to Sign up with CJ and you can take a lot of ideas about what to promote.

      There is too much competition for International travel, in my opinion.

      I have done well by footslogging around local area businesses: hotels, motels, attractions, and selling space on a directory dedicated to the local area. It's hard work initially, but then eventually you have perpetual income for almost minimal time.
