Bondware Directory is an excellent way to generate revenue on your news site. Pre-populate your directory with basic listings that can be claimed and enhanced by the listing owner. Featured listings (with advertising feature), location maps and additional category placements are available as listing enhancements for business. Depending on the site audience/traffic, sites can command up to $100/yr for a premium listing with little staff time involved. Publishers can set up certain categories for free (i.e. "for sale") while others (i.e. "jobs") are paid categories.
