Top Advertising Networks for Webmasters
My top choices for webmaster advertising networks, affiliate programs, etc.
Note: some of these links contain my affiliate ID...which means I make a commission if you join and earn income from the advertising/affiliate network. However, this doesn't affect which networks I recommend or bias my reviews. Thanks ahead of time if you do join an affiliate program under my affiliate link!
FluxAds - Webmasters: Make Money! - FluxAds is my top choice for a CPA network. They always pay, and have the best 2nd tier affiliate program, in my opinion. This means that if you get other webmasters to join and use FluxAds you receive a small commission. These small commissions can really add up...I'll call it "magic money". A better term would be "residual income". :D
Google Adsense - If you have a quality, content-driven website...Google Adsense is going to be your top choice monetizing your content.
Amazon.com Associates - Since Amazon sells almost everything...you can make commissions off referrals to Amazon.com for almost any product imaginable. Electronics to home furnishings and beyond.
Chitika - Display search targeted, mobile and local ads that are suited to your audience's interests, and earn revenue.
There are tons of other advertising networks and affiliate programs out there, but these are my top picks and happy to recommended them to other webmasters.
