Google Adsense.

You get to select the size of the ad, the type of advertisements that will appear, and the number of ads per page (up to 3).


It is really easy to do and they give you the code to paste into your page. The pay per click is pretty good also anywhere from $.15-$1 per click.

just to be clear...I am looking for someone else to advertise product on my page...I must have this page that over 1000 per month users hit
I have used the service before. It is very easy to setup. Google sells advertising space to companies and they select the target audience they want their ads to appear on. The ads are from many different companies and Google takes care of that for you.

All you have to do is select the size, and you can also tag some categories to help find ads that are relevant to your audience.

Once you have your ads setup Google uses algorithms to make sure that each click that it charges the advertiser for is legitimate. So if someone clicks on a link and only spends 5 seconds on the page it is not likely to produce any revenue. While if someone clicks on an ad and then clicks on a few more links on the advertisers site revenue will be generated.

The service is free and can only help you generate income. I would give it a try.

okay well it came back and I got the code on the page and when approved it will show up....

Ive seen this adds before....do people really click on these adds?


its a javascript and I was going to add a JS method so I can track from my page when a user clicks on it..is that legal...
People do click on them. You don't need to create any new JS. Just use Google Analytics. It will show you detailed information about your visitors as well as help you track clicks on your adsense clicks.

You will need to check the faq pages for Google adsense. The terms may have changed since the last time I used it.
