- AdSense AdSense AdSense : The most productive and useful method for legitimate earnings is the Google AdSense if your content is genuine and your site is in compliance with the AdSense policies. There are other ad networks that also work like Chitika, admaya, bidvertisers etc. but they can not match the revenue percentage AdSense is sharing with its publishers.
- Affiliate Marketing : Affiliate marketing is also very useful and productive where you can put advertisements on your site, that can be text links or banners of different sizes referring to the affiliate pages and if any sale is made you get your share as commission. Most famous affiliate program is of ClickBank and commission junction. You can read more on affiliate marketing in our Clickbank series on the subject.
- CPM-Cost per 1000 Impressions : In CPM marketing publishers are paid for their advertisement spaces on the basis of number of visits to the page also called impressions. The rates are decided for CPM ads and whenever the ad is displayed publishers are earning even if no one is clicking their ads. The rate of CPM varies based upon the type of page and page ranking etc.
