    Domain names (late 1990s) and then by redirecting those visitors to affiliate programs.

    Those where the good ol' days... TRUE autopilot earnings. :)

    :eek: you started the domain game in the 90's? Do you have any really aged and valuable domain names now? :p there were sooo many good ones available back then!

    I think my first income online was generated from spamming myspace back when it first came around - what a pity lol..

    My first touch with making money online was with "Get Paid To ..." programs. I was strugling with making money for surfing, or reading e-mails. I've spent so much time on GetPaid forum.

    But those times are gone and I'm happy that I was more curious about how websites are created and I've started with programming and web developing (web designing).

    However, there are infinitive possibilities to make money through internet nowadays.

    Either Valueclick or eAds. Neither generated much revenue. My first real money came I believe in early 1999 with 24/7 Media.

    Yah, really... :)

    Domains were great, I had a lot of really good ones but dropped most after the DMCA. I lost a few more when NetworkSolutions screwed up my renewal.

    Would you believe that I owned "networksollutions.com"? It's mispelled but made me a pretty penny. :)
