They are all different and have different ways to help you generate more income with your blog.Some will help you with your ads, affiliate links, and some will help you to generate more leads easily and fast.
I will tell you even about plugins which can help you to sell different types of services and products beside advertisement.Because you need to have multiple sources of revenue, don’t rely only on adsense, always have plan B ready to use.
Komoona Ads - is a perfect, FREE WordPress plugin! it helps you sell banner ads, monetize your traffic and make money.
This plugin is the best for me, it’s free, it helps me sell banner ads with 3 easy steps. The plugin form don’t give headaches to advertisers, since they don’t need to chase you, email you and ask how to start advertising with you.
They just click on “advertise here” button, upload or create banner, select the period and pricing customize it and pay. It’s that easy, and admin panel of the komoona ads have everything you need, from uploading your “click here” image ad to analytics and payments, coupons that you can create for your advertisers and help them save some money,which only makes your business deal stronger.
I only have one comment for this plugin, it’s hard to uplaod html banner from affiliate companies like cj. Maybe there is option somwhere, if i missed it, please tell me in the comments. But this plugin will not disappoint you, it simply has all you need to make money with your blog.
Awesome Ads - Awesome Ads is a free plugin that automatically insert Google Adsense and Chitika ads into your Posts and Pages.
I personally use this one too, and it helped me a lot, you just insert your adsense id and choose the type of ad you want to use. You will not need to insert your adsense code manually ever again, plugin do all this for you automatically. You can choose where you want your ads to appear, in home, posts and pages, you can also set the number of ads to appear.The customization of ads, color and type can be changed from the plugin.
But the best option of this plugin is that it has “Adsense Revenue Share” options to set from the background. It means that you can share revenue with your authors and writers, they just need to send you their adsense id. After that you just set the percentage you want them to get from the ads, and they will get money every time someone clicks on the ads. Authors will earn money just from the ads that appear on the posts they wrote, not from your or any other authors articles.
Only thing that can be improved is number of different ads types to create, for now you can create up to 3 ads on the pages and posts but only from one type of ad, like 300×250 for example. This plugin deserves more downloads and more reviews and can help you to make money online with your blog.
Adsense Widget – You can use this widget to easy and in second put the adsense ad in the sidebar of your blog. You just put your adsense id in the plugin settings, customize your ad color, choose the ad type and you’re ready to go. There is also an option to hide ad from users or admins. This is really useful plugin and can help you to make more revenue from your active sidebar.
