Targeted ads with Chitika

While Chitika may not offer as many types of ads as its competitors, the few ads that it offers are very targeted, which means you can expect a higher Click Through Rate or CTR. This is  the only ad-network that helps promote a better user experience by knowing when an ad should not be displayed. And because their ads are non-contextual and so completely different from Adsense units, you can use Chitika Ads along with Adsense, allowing you to benefit from both. They also offer a 10% referral program.

Contextual ads with Bidvertiser

Similar to Google Adsense, Bidvertiser displays only contextual advertisements depending upon the content on your site. They make it easy for subscribers to customize the layout of the ads with simple point and click tools. With Bidvertiser, website owners have the ability to automatically sell their ad space to the highest bidder. You get paid every time a visitor clicks on an ad and if the click turns into conversion, you get additional revenue. However, unless yours is a high traffic blog, you are not likely to see significant earnings.

Online advertising network: Adbrite

One of the oldest and most popular online advertising networks, Adbrite specializes in selling advertizing on websites by displaying banner ads. They are a completely transparent platform and give members greater control over the results by allowing direct access to advanced campaign data and analytics. It has the best results for US and UK related traffic.

Clicking along with Clicksor

A good alternative to Google Adsense, Clicksor comes as a real boon to those who haven’t gotten their Adsense application approved or who have had their Adsense account banned for some reason. Clicksor has the third largest publisher network and allows you to earn through more than ten different ad formats. Depending on the performance that advertisers obtain from your website placement and clicks, you could potentially earn up to 60% of the revenue share… which is quite a considerable percentage! As an additional bonus they have an excellent referral program that offers 10% commission.

Kontera for blogs

Kontera works best with content rich blogs. To get approved, you need to have a well established blog with huge page impressions. They display relevant ads by scanning your website and looking for the relevant keywords that match keywords in their database. The payouts with Kontera are quite impressive with record high Click Through Rate or CTR. Some members claim that they have the best payouts in the business along with the best relevancy and user experience. The really good news – it takes only a minute to enroll and set up.

Working with Adsense

There’s no doubt that this is one of the best and most popular program around.  There’s nobody who wants to make money online who hasn’t heard of Google Adsense. It’s like the buzzword of the virtual world. If you get approved, you can monetize your site with some of the most desirable ads. However, the approval criteria have become so stringent lately, you will find it difficult to get your application approved unless you have established a significant online presence through your blog or website.

Monetization of a site

Website monetization simply means the process or processes that you use to start earning an income from your website or blog.  While there are several strategies that you can implement to monetize your site, there are a few that are far more effective than others. To find out the effectiveness of the different platforms across the board, I spoke to several website owners and asked them to share their experiences and their opinions on the best monetizing strategies. The sites mentioned below were unanimously voted as amongst the best ones to use.
