    i have a great site, but want to find a way to monetize it (not adsense)

    I'm thinking ebooks or some affiliate chemistry programme do you know of any?

    Just target the 'standard' chemistry. 5% should be ok, but if you tried to target 'English Language' then maybe you could hit a wider audience

    this is a specialized site on chemistry, not spam site, not for students. So i think books are the only way. Adsense is to low earning. I have low traffic but 100% targeted for sophisticated chemical compounds. On my ecommerce i have more than 5% conversion rate :)

    What made you think it is as Spam site ? Definitely education sites are targeted sites.. mine has a decent 800 pageviews for the new education blog :)

    Good luck minting money!

    Hmm, I've actually thought about this before, but I didn't come up with anything better than Amazon. Maybe try ebay aff with some chemical and apparatus auctions. Also, if you're really providing something useful to a targeted audience, never deny the power of paypal donations! :D

    Ads and stuff like amazon is all that comes to mind. depends on what the site really is and what your traffic base is.

    Are any of your users going to have epassporte? Most likely they will have to signup to use it... why not use Google Checkout or 2checkout or any of those?
