Google Advertising platform is a universal solution that everyone follows nowadays. We have selected Google Ads is our first approach to generate revenue from existing traffic. Publishers can place the advertisements in different parts of the site, and the sizes are 160×600, 468×60, 336×280, 300×250, and 728×90.
The AdSense platform is sophisticated; in our opinion; you don’t have to worry about technical complications. It would help if you had a piece of code from the dashboard and then place it in the sidebar, in the post, pages, header, and footer.
Publishers don’t have to stick together with the Google Ads platform and move to Yahoo and Bing. Overall, it is your ultimate decision because there are plenty of alternatives available in the market that can get the job done. You have to conduct your research before proceeding because Ad Networks have different payout systems.

- The affiliate network will provide a unique sale link for your website.
- Copy and paste the link in your blog post, where you can add the “Buy Now” or “Download” buttons.
When visitors land on your post and are encouraged to purchase the product or service, then you will receive a commission once the goods are delivered.
