Pay per click affiliate programs are programs which allow you to sell advertising space on your website and get paid when people click through these ads from your website to another website. Google AdSense is the most popular contextual pay per click affiliate program but by no means the only pay per click option. Some other pay per click affiliate programs you may wish to try out are Yahoo’s Publisher Network, Bidvertiser, AdBrite, SearchFeed or ClickSor.
Google and Yahoo are the biggest search engines on the Internet and just as Google has AdSense, Yahoo has it’s publisher network. In order to be considered for the Yahoo publisher’s network you need to have a valid US social security or tax ID and your website needs to be predominantly in English and targeted at the USA. If your website fulfills these criteria you can start placing their adverts on your website and earning commission on each valid click sent.
Bidvertiser is another pay per click affiliate program that offers AdSense style adverts for your website. Bidvertiser always shows the highest bidders on your website and has a low payout cost of $10 which is paid either through PayPal or check. You are also able to block any unwanted ads which you do not want to show and generate reports to monitor your performance.
AdBrite allows you to sell AdSense style advertising space on your website at your own rates and with you controlling the approval process. AdBrite then takes care of the other aspects such as billing, serving, scheduling, etc.
SearchFeed is also a pay per click advertising program similar to Google AdSense but where you can choose the keywords you want your adverts to target. You have a number of different advert options including a error page 404 traffic capturer, allowing you to make money off these error messages. Payment is also through PayPal and you have a number of reporting options.
ClickSor is another contextual advertising program like AdSense but which has a number of advertising options including text links, text banners, graphical banners, pop-unders, XML feeds, layer ads and search boxes and offers up to 85% revenue or profit share. Payment is made either through PayPal or a check payment.
Google AdSense, AdBrite, Bidvertiser, ClickSor, SearchFeed, the Yahoo’s Publisher Network and many other contextual advertising and pay per click affiliate programs offer a great way for you to monetize your blogs, add an additional revenue source to your website and make some extra money. Each have their own unique benefits and offer you the chance to decide which option will work best for your website.
