if I have a goal of getting 1 cent per each visitor that returns every other day to my site. How would I go about it?
And to achieve it each and every time he visits?
You could describe it for heavy content and non heavy content based sites.

Banner: 0.1cent              CPM=1$
Affiliatelinks: 0.25cent      CTR=2% Conversion Rate=2.5% CPA=5$
AdSense: 0.1cent            CTR=5% CPC=0.02$

How can I reach this monetizing goal?

    If your primary focus is creating a site that is heavily laden with ads that will bring you revenue, you are probably not paying enough attention to creating a site that is worth visiting on its own merits.  If you first build a fabulous site with lots of interesting and original content and promote it properly, you will ultimately generate a lot of traffic, which will create opportunities for revenue.

    I am looking for how to get most out of the site in terms of revenue with minimum distractions for the user. What other ways than above are their to get money in that can pay for advertising?

    If you use adwords you cannot use any other kind of adverticing, unless I misinterpreted the terms of service.
    If the contents of your site are good, the google ads there will be good and related to what people want, so they will probably click more. Also, a Google search box also sends you a revenue if the user clicks on sponsored results there.
    And in the long term, if you have a reference page with a huge amount of visits you can start putting a price to your advertising space.

    I presume you mean AdSense, which is the program for publishers (AdWords is for advertisers).  With AdSense, you can have ads from different sources on the same website, but not on the same page: "We do not permit Google ads or search boxes accessing Google search services to be published on web pages that also contain what could be considered competing ads or services" (source -

    However, you can use an alternative ad server as your specified 'alternate ad', ie. instead of the PSA when AdSense can't produce an add suitable for your page.
