I have a website idea, and i'm wondering how to convert the hits into income. I know there's PPC (Pay per click) advertising, is there any other approaches which are worthwhile?

I tried googling, but there's so much crap out there on online advertising. Can someone recommend some good sources of this information, or worthwhile books?

Generally there are three sources of monetisation: cpc, cpm and affiliate marketing.

CPC (cost per click) you have identified already.
CPM is cost per thousand impressions. This is typically used for banner advertising.

Both are offered by ad networks like AdSense or AdBrite, or you can offer advertising on your site and do it independently.

The third, affiliate marketing, is where you sell someone elses product and take a commission. You can either join an affiliate network like commission junction or apply directly to sites in your niche that have an affiliate program.
