Tripod, one of many free web-hosting companies, announced a new program today that will actually pay owners of homepages that generate a certain amount of hits per day.

The rates are $1.00 for every 1000 ad impressions your site serves, which is pretty slim to say the least; sure it could add up over time - at 5,000 impressions a day you're pulling in $1,800US a year so don't quit the day job yet. It sounds to me like they're giving you a small percentage of the money they're already making off the annoying banner ads that are served from your Web pages anyways.

Get all the gory details here.

Dan lives a quiet life in the bustling city of Milwaukee, WI. Although he founded what would become in 1998, he's since moved on to other projects and is now the owner of Progressive Networks, a Zimbra hosting company based in Milwaukee.
