If you often check your blog stats, you’d notice that most of the visitors either come from search engines like Google & Yahoo or networking sites like StumbleUpon and Facebook. While organic traffic converts well, traffic from networking sites like the ones mentioned above and your return visitors does not convert well. Non-organic traffic usually does not offer a very high CPC. This signifies majority of your blog’s traffic going waste. To convert non-organic traffic and make some money out of it, you should consider using CPM ads.
A general CPM advertising network pays you on a scale of $1-4 per 1000 impressions. If your daily non-organic traffic count is around 500, you are probably losing revenue that those 500 visitors could have possibly made had they come to your blog from search engines as they are less likely to click on ads. You should implement CPM advertisements on your blog as they are probably the best way out.
Why use a CPM advertising network?
- Can be placed anywhere on your blog / website.
- You get paid decently.
- Easy to implement on your blog or website.
- $1-8 for traffic which otherwise could have gone waste is too good!
- Can be used along with Google Adsense or other advertising networks.
- Allows you to monetize your blog’s unused inventory.
- Allows you to earn some extra money.

These are some best CPM advertising networks I’ve come across. I’ve tried some of them, while my friends have recommended the others. My favorites among the above CPM advertising networks are Harren Media, Tribal Fusion, Clicksor, Chitika and Technorati Media.
All the above CPM-based ad networks have their own terms and conditions, payment rules, different payment schemes, etc. So I recommend you to go through their terms and conditions and frequently asked questions section carefully and before joining contact them if you have any doubts. You’d be asked to sign a contract to use some of the above CPM ads network (ex: Harren Media). Read the contract / agreement patiently and then sign it carefully.
