Try something I've had success at.

Build up an information website in a specific category, get it to rank high in the serps, optimize interior pages for different keywords and bring in lots of traffic to it.

Then, when you are dominating that niche, offer to lease it out like a piece of real estate to a commercial entity.

I lease out 2 sites like that. Nice steady paycheck every month.

Hi Zapatista,

Interesting approach. Could you clarify a few things?

When you lease it out, what parts of the site do you modify for your customers, and what do you place off limits to them? I'm thinking you most likely don't allow them to modify the pages you've built up great SE results for and incoming links to, right? What would be the customers content/branding/advertising .vs your stuff; i.e. what about the site would change if you switched customers?

How do you price the offering?

Any tips on what to look out for when dealing with people with such an arrangement? How do you keep on top of things with them?

Zapatista, maybe I'm reading you wrong, but what you said sounds like a standard affiliate site with exclusivity.
