#3 Top Blog Advertising Sites - Sites which provide Blogging for Cash

Given below are some of the websites which help you to earn money online blogging. These sites help you to generate revenue by getting your website introduced to advertisers.

  1. Google Adsense

    Google Adsense is the most popular blog advertising platform. So if you are blogging for cash, then you need to apply for Adsense as soon as you write a good number of articles and informative content. Remember that your application would be rejected if your website doesn't have enough content. Once you have a good amount of content and traffic, you can easily earn money online blogging. You can Apply for Good Adsense here in the link Apply for Google Adsense

  2. Exit Junction

    Every webmaster must sign up for them. They are the only PPC network that gives a visitor ads AFTER they are exiting your site via the back button. They are not annoying popup ads. It's a page full of ads and they can go back to your site if they want. If a visitor searches for your site in a search engine and then decides to leave it via hitting the back button, they get a page full of Exit Junction ads instead of leaving your site. Normally you wouldn't make any money from these visitors because they want to leave your site and go to other results on the search results. I've found that the earnings are about 20% of my Adsense earnings, but this will vary a little for each user.

  3. Yahoo Publisher Network

    Yahoo Publisher pays almost as good as Google Adsense per click on average, but it has poorer contextual targeting than Adsense because they have a smaller advertiser base. The poor targeting, usually results in lower click through rate and lower earnings overall.

    Unfortunately, YPN has been in beta forever and it is hard to get and stay in the program. Yahoo wants quality sites in their network for now while it's still in beta. They have strict standards for staying in their program based on the quality of traffic you get.

  4. Bid Vertiser

    Bidvertiser is one of the best blog advertising platform if you are Blogging for cash. The minimum payout is 10$ for checkout and you can check out through Paypal. It provides you a wide range of banner advertising options and you can select one of the best ones for your website design. You can apply for Bidvertiser in the link Apply for Bidvertiser

  5. Chitika

    Chitika is different than most Pay per click networks because they are not Contextual based on your page content. Instead ads are served based on the keyword of a user when they come via the search engines. They only show ads when a website visitor comes from the search engines and from the U.S or Canada. If the visitor comes from another website or is not from U.S or canada then the Chitika ad is not shown. Chitika is acceptable to use in conjunction with Google adsense on the same pages because they are not contextual and they do not look like Adsense units.
