    I was reading some posts here where people claim to have thousands of blogs on their WPMU installation and since lots of CPU (server) resources are required to maintain such number of blogs they have to move to dedicated servers. Most of these provide free creation of blogs.

    How do these people providing free creation of blogs earning money. ( lets not talk about WP.com or google etc. )
    Is it from google adsense and other text and banner ads ?
    Or is there something else also that may be I am not aware of ?
    I am really trying to understand the philosophy behind all such freebies. Not all will become popular and taken over by bigger companies. So what should be the approach, if one just wants to earn say USD1000 (one thousand dollars) per month by providing services like WP.com does. I mean by providing free blogs.

    Once I move to a dedicated box, I plan on adding non intrusive google ads.

    I hope it generates enough to at least pay for the server, since this is more like a hobby for me.

    $3.5 a day = $105 a month = The price for a half decent beginner's box. (Plus get you over the $100 a month payout limit.)

    A good way to judge is to figure out how many page views you're currently doing.

    Page Views * 2% (A good click through rate) * $.08 (An average payout for a click) = Earnings per day

    Well, according to that formula I should be getting between $3-16 per day (awstats, webalizer and google analitycs show different numbers).

    Thanks for getting my hopes up! :P

    I am just getting started with MU sites. How do you place the ads on all the blogs? Is there a way so that only the admin can remove them? Is there a way to use an ad rotator?

    Any other info on this would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    there are header and footer hook available. you can also hack the standard widgets. there's also a plugin that allows you to add things to the foot at the ends of posts. but i havent found a way to mass edit beyond those.
