I dont know of any guide websites, but seeing as you arnt getting much help as is, here is my two cents.
There are many ways to make money at 80, one of which any class with any profession can do, which is dailies and other quests. At 80, you get 13 gold or more for completeing any quest, so questing for about an hour could return over 100g to you.
Second, there is professions. Different professions are good for different things, but only a few give money without effort. Of course there are collecter profs, like skinning herbalism and mining, which are great if you have a lot of farming time on your hands. Personally, i am an alchemist. Every 20 hours, you can click a button that creates an epic gem, which can be cut and sold for 250g or more, compared to the cost of the mats which is under 50g. You can make flasks from the raw mats and make significant profit by selling them individually, which is made much easier in the most recent patch with the changes to the auction house.
Third, there is working the market. What you are going to want to do is find a Jewelcrafter that has many patterns, and will cut them for free or under 5g a piece. Next, go into the gems portion of the auction house and search for the gems that have the best Uncut:Cut Ratio. Simply making the investment in buying the uncut gems, getting them cut, and selling them, can make you over 100g/gem. Personally, with my gems that i create and buy, i go through about 30 gems a week, making about 2k profit each week. There are other high-margin items on the AH that when refined by a proffesion, cost much more than the initial mats. Take advantage of this.
I do not beleive that there are any effective gold making guides for world of warcraft, and without one i do just fine, while riding around on my Traveller's Tundra Mammoth.
