Pretty simple question but ,I'm wondering how sites like UG make money to keep the site alive. Would the founder get paid per hit/amount of traffic? or what is the situation there? And also when people say that UG is allowed to show tabs because they pay royalties to the artists, how do they get enough money to do that and anyone know how much it is? Because if I was an artist , I'd defiantly allow my tabs to be out there , just to get my music heard.

The site is actually a front for a prostitution site, and thats how the money comes in. Zappp is one big, filthy internet pimp.

Advertisers


Do they really make that much from stupid "shoot the duck" games and "Power Chord Academy"? There has to be another income of some sort?

ads, and considering how high this sites traffic is, that's an assload of money.

Really? that's bananas, I read in the other thread that only a handful of people actually make money from UG, I never knew that people paid to use it though.

I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

I once knew a guy who had a minor website about SSBM and SSBB, he had a few ads on the website, and didn't get too many visitors in all reality.
He made $1,000+ a month.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.

I worked it out at one point for a piece of work I was doing and the advertising does generate quite a lot of money.

As for royalties, I don't know how much they pay but the total cost would be higher if they were based in the States.
Quote by Mia (Pulp Fiction)
Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Advertising is a huge amount of money. I place ads for our restuarant. I spend approx. $5000 US a month on print and radio advertising. It is money well spent. The increase traffic pays off the advertising budget. As for a place like Power Chord. Whatever they pay on this site is well worth it. They probably get a ton of business from sites like this.

O RLY.

Yeah, Advertisements pay for this site. Zappp may have to pay a few dollars, though.

Now the real question is, where do the advertisers get the money? surely not very many people buy whatever they sell...

Duh! Zappp pays them. Vicious cycle dude. If not for Zappp the US Navy would be broke.
Oh and you're two months behind on your UG dues. Pay up.
