Bloggers Resource List

While there are mountains upon mountains of articles regaling the almighty blog, many of them throw out major ball players, leaving the small fry behind. Just about everyone has heard about ad sense, delicious, and so forth, but what about Kanoodle, or Qads? Sure the well known companies are popular for a good reason, but like many of us out there, I prefer to dine on a wider array of options. When selecting which companies to work with, more choices increases the chances of finding 'the right fit'. So here is a list of resources for bloggers. It doesn't cover all the companies out there, in fact there might be quite a few missing, but it's a good head start!

Pay Per Click Advertising

Ads-Click - Bloggers set their own rates, but keep it realistic.
AdBrite - The writer chooses the appearance, and has more control over the ads.
ABC Search - Just another second-tier option.
BidVertiser - This large network PPC program just can't seem to keep up with Adsense, but one of these days....
Chitika - It's not the traditional pay per click scenario, but hey, who needs tradition?
ClickBooth - States that they have the highest pay rates....this is yet to be decided.
Clicksor - Contextual ads program. Mediocre.
DoubleClick - A targeted PPC option.
Google AdSense - One of the most well known of all the PPC opportunities out there. Potential members just need a google email account to join.
