Google Adsense is an obvious choice. They are everywhere on the web and they are also usually everyones first choice in making money online. Google AdSense offers a variety of advertising / monetizing options including simple text and image ads on your web site / blog that are targeted on what you are talking about. The problem is that you have to earn $100 before they will pay you. Most of us new comers won’t see $100 earnings for quite some time.
Text Link Ads searches your blog content and inserts text links that link to the advertisers site and to search engines without anoying the readers. The price of the links is based on the number of RSS subscribers, Google Page Rank, Alexa, etc and is set by Text Link Ads. They also pay for referrels.
Bidvertiser is a CPC ad network. CPC means cost-per-click (CPC) which is based on advertising click-throughs. This is a direct competitor to Google AdSense. The difference is that you only need make $10 to receive a payment unlike Google.
Widget Bucks is a newer network that provides advertisements in a variety of format sizes that target a wide variety of products. The advertisements change pictures and options at the time interval that you choose to get the attention of consumers. Widget Bucks offers $25 at sign up towards their minimum pay out of $50.
That’s my make money on line plan as of today. I plan to investigate Auction Ads, Commision Junction, and others in the near future. I will update this page as I add or subtract programs based on their success or failure.
Note: I added some Auction Ads to the left side bar a couple of hours after writing this post. We will see how they perform!
