That was my first blog. Get the list of paid link networks from here and make sure to check their policy is not against Google’s TOS.

If you are tired of not getting any sort of advertisement payment before, then you should try these ads. I used to show Infolinks ads on my blog and eared few dollars within the first day. If you write some reviews or paid post on your blog, then you should not show contextual ads on these posts. Your advertiser will not prefer to see other links on their review or article.
One of the easiest ways to make money from your blog is by promoting affiliate links. With affiliates networks like ClickBank, Commission Junction, Pepperjam, Azoogle, Chitika, etc; we can easily find a easy selling products with good paying commissions.
