I would like to know which are the best free ways to earn money with a website.
That would depend on lots of factors and how you measure "best". However, article marketing is certainly a no cost and effective way to start earning money online.
I agree - that is a huge open-ended question! But if you go to this discussion here you can find some info that may help you...

You will have to learn some SEO (search engine optimization) to increase your page views. Then you can use advertising like google adsense, affiliate marketing, free money making programs etc..
And there is always SBI - one of the best ways to learn a TON about SEO without having to be smart... plus end up with a nice website to boot.
Whether you use free or paid methods, selling from a website is the same:
Leads --> Educate --> Sell
You must define the purpose of your site. Will it be direct sale of a product or service? A lead capture page for further marketing to your list members via email? A niche within a niche?
There are plenty of free marketing sites. They do not convert or get your more leads like the paid services will. But they are free. Using free resources means you have to spend your time to work them, track them and find the good ones.
Hope this helps.
Some free methods are article marketing, video marketing and blogs. This gives you alot of free traffic driving to your site. Make sure you are able to get the proper training and support you need to be able to implement these tools.
You could create a blog or design a website around affiliate marketing and use it to create multiple income streams out of it.
To Your Success,
You can have a very good looking website but if you are not able or don't know how to bring traffic to it then you will not do so well. Another important factor to a converting website is to have some sort of an opt-in form so that people can opt into your newsletter.
This will allow you to follow up with them. Some will buy from you in the first email. Some will buy in your 10th email to them.
Now, in terms of getting traffic to it, I personally am not so happy with article marketing. Sure, it is working for a lot of people but for me it is not with over 300 articles.
PPC is still the best of the best when it comes to getting paid traffic to your site.
Matt Zenittini: I like MLM
I totally agree with you Matt.
You could also post free ads at US free Ads, every little bit helps.
Unless you want to use a site such as Squidoo, Hubpages, Blogger etc it's not really free to have a website (although it is cheap). If you want your own website you'll have to pay for a domain (approx $8) and hosting ($5-10 per month).
If you're using one of the free sites above I would create some content reviewing an affiliate product (maybe one from Clickbank) and then submit articles to article directories such as Ezinearticles to get traffic back to your site.
The best way to make money with a website is through niche website building. This is something I have learned within the last six months and saw a world of difference with traffic and $$$ once I caught on to how it's done.
affiliate links related to your niche and google adsense.
I have been using usfreeads and have been getting some views from it. It is also pretty affordable.
The fact that you want to make money from owning a website means only one thing- you have to invest. Websites cost money.
Many us believe that there are magical quick ways to transform ourselves into instant millionaires with a website. It has never worked that way and it never will.
A website costs money and time to build. The marketing of the site costs even more in cash and time especially for those without adequate internet marketing skills.
My advice to you is to have an open mind. Firstly, know that you will need some finance, however little. Then you should be prepared to put in long hours in training and building your business. That is a fact.
As regards what kind of activity you can engage in, only you can decide that based on your skills and motivation.
Areas that you can explore include Affiliate Marketing, selling your own products or working as a Virtual Assistant.
All require work. That is the bottom line.
