The thought process of monetizing a blog or web site can be quite confusing and complicating for any site owner. You want to make money with your web site, but you don’t want to jeopardize your traffic with a bunch of banner ads on your site. You might even already be making a few dollars with Google Adsense or Amazon’s affiliate program, but you are still looking to squeeze a few more dollars out of your traffic… what can you do?

An option a lot of web site owners are moving towards, is contextual marketing. INTENTclick, which is run by Kontera, has one of the largest contextual ad networks in the world. Just like Google Adsense, INTENTclick will display ads on your web site that are based solely on the content you already have, but it’s even better because INTENTclick only displays text based advertising, so you don’t have to worry about any extra banner space taking up room on your site.

You can see a preview of how contextual advertising may look on your web site, in the screenshot on the right side of the page. You may also notice that we are currently running INTENTclick links actively on PPC.org.
