    Hi

    I was wondering how good or bad is making money online, via referring advertisments. I'm thinking of using this method as I don't have a job at the moment for own reasons.

    Could someone tell me how good it is for them and also if they use it, to PM me the website they use if they would. Preferrbly UK.

    I have tried one before and all and it did not work out properly.

    Also as I'm not 100% sure, money made from this, would it go towards income tax or any other form of tax? Bit of a silly question but I'm not too sure so would like to know espicially as they claim you can make a large amount of money and would like to know.

    What do you mean referral ads, where would you put them? If you're talking PPC you have to have a website with a great number of hits.

    Well, the fact that you've done it before and it didn't work out might give you a clue that it's quite a hard area to make money in. I think a better bet may be start by selling stuff on ebay you don't need. My sister sold a 3 year old Jack Wills body warmer for £88, when it cost her £98!
