How do such sites earn?

>> No every site is monetized.
>> They could be waiting for the time when they can effectively generate a certain income out of the stie.
>> . . . (and number of other reasons)

Hi thanks...

So, monetizing is through only google ads, MSN ads and yahoo search marketing? Any way other than these three?

And when I submit my site to directories, some of the directories say that sites with affiliate links will not be accepted/listed.

Banner ads, own product sales, lead generation (ie selling harvested email addresses or other info).

Of course some do it just for the joy. The first 4 years of our site we dished out thousands of dollars to keep it running and had no monetary return. Of course that's changed now.

Some affiliate programs have what are called "white label" opportunities. Instead of using an affiliate link, you register a domain to use for your site. This may be what you're referring to?

Another possibility is to use a script that cloaks your affiliate code. Instead of some unwieldly url, it will just appear as a regular domain name. I don't know if they are frowned upon by the search engines (or if it even makes any difference at all), but I have heard of some affiliates using scripts like these.

Sometimes the purpose of a site is to drive traffic to another site belonging to the same owner. The income is earned on the other site.
