How does this site make money?

9 replies
I have a similar site to The AnswerBank - post questions and answers, and discuss topics of interest..

Other than the ads can you think of any ways they may be making money? I know they make good turnover.

    If there's no item directly for sale it'd have to be ads.

    But within "ads" there are a number of things that could be done. Contextual ads, cpa, affiliate. I'd think affiliate ads might be good, you could work in relevant links based on the question being asked.

    There is a post on there that asks that same question. The answer was that it is pretty much just the ads, but you need to get a lot of people to your site too so that the ads are shown to more people.

    They also might try to make money with their newsletter, I am not sure though.

    Advertising no doubt plays a part but I'm quite sure that they will also sell the survey answers to interested companies as market research. That's what I would do.

    Yeah but the results of the polls are publicly displayed so who would want to buy them? I know they make at least $20k each month!
