I recently discovered Ziddu, a file sharing/hosting network that pays you for how many downloads your files get. Payout is roughly $10 for a thousand downloads, but it's free to use and each file can be up to 200 MB, large enough for standard use. While not the easiest way to make money, if you have large amounts of files that people might find popular, check out the site HERE.

As many of you might have heard, Google and Amazon are discontinuing certain advertising programs. Google has ended the ability to post Youtube videos on your blog or website and have ads displayed on them. However, you can still earn money through Youtube videos through Youtube's partner program. Amazon has discontinued the referral program for North America, where users who go through links on your website and sign up earn you money. Outside of North America, however, the program is still in effect at the time of this post. These changes may affect bloggers who rely on them for a steady source of income.

EBay ads are basically the same as Amazon's ads, except they have a better integration with PayPal, as PayPal is owned by EBay. The basics are the same, content is matched to your site and you're paid every time someone clicks on the ad on your site and makes a purchase on EBay. A group of six ads along the side of your blog or website could bring in some heavy revenue if you have enough visitors.

Amazon has a ad lineup that is similar to Adsense in that it automatically matches the ad content to your sites content. For example, if you have a website or blog on books, Amazon's ads will show listings for books that are currently for sale on their website. You earn a portion of the sales revenue, so these ads are similar to a referral program, as you only get paid when someone makes a purchase. While not the best ad service, it should definitely be considered.

Besides the other methods I've listed below, there are other ways to make money online. Among these include completing surveys for money, or simply surfing the web and clicking on ads.
Some sites pay you to complete surveys online. The amount of money will differ, and so will your eligibility for polls, as the website will decide which one you can take. This is based on how much information you provide them, so they can accurately sort results. With enough information and some time, you can stand to make a decent amount of money.
While these sites are hard to find now, they are not non-existent. The most common form of payment is to pay $0.05 for every ad you click on and spend 30 seconds on the linked page, $1.00 for every active person you refer, and $0.01 for every ad they click on after sign up. In time, you could stand to earn from $30 upwards a month, so these programs should be used as secondary streams of income.
I haven't earned much money from this form of money making, but the potential is definitely there. You basically get paid per 1000 downloads, and the amount depends on which country the file was downloaded in. The amount of money ranges from $30 in the US to $5 in Russia, but the amount is different depending on the website. You can also make money from referring friends, as long as they upload files and remain active.
