    First and foremost i am a noob to this. My questions are not asking you to help or tell me how to make money. My questions are how exactly does this make money? How does having a website produce income? Who pay who to do what? Again i am not asking anyone here to tell me how to do it. I am how this makes money.

    website displays ads. ads are given to you for your website by google adsense. you are responsible for driving the traffic to your website.

    So basically go to a certain company for example Best Buy. Get the ads/affiliate links and link them on "my website", promote my website and get paid everytime they click a ad or link that takes them to best Buy's website?

    And the challenge is getting people to go to your website and click those links/affiliate ads?

    Hello,
    The entire idea is to have a website, where you either:
    a)place ads (CPA or Go ogle Ad sense)
    b)sel products (your own product or products that belong to others)

    You bring visitors to that website from different sources:
    a)Google/Yahoo/Msn (search engine traffic made with SEO)
    b)YouTube/Vimeo (video traffic)
    c)Facebook/Twitter (social traffic)

    That's the major idea.
    Now who pays you money? Let me give you an example on how Google (via google adsense) gives you money.
    a)You are the "promoter" that has the website and display the google adsense ads
    b)I am the person who pays for the ads to google.

    I pay 1$/click (example), from that you get a percent and google gets a percent. You get money because the ad was clicked from your website.

    Hope I helped a bit.
    Thanks,
    Vlad

    This is the answer i was looking for. Thank you for making it so much more clear. I appreciate your time. Now do i go to Go ogle adsense and choose from a list of which service/product to promote through my site? Or just put in my own?

    And another question is can you be screwed over on getting paid by go ogle or the affiliate sites?
