Is there any advertisement system (like AdSense) that would allow me to encourage the visitors on my page to click the ad?

The pay doesn't need to be as high as in AdSense, it's only important that I'm not braking the rules by doing so.

Are you asking for an ad network that encourages click fraud (clicking with no actual interest in the advertised product, but simply to help the publisher get more PPC money)? –  Lèse majesté Dec 26 '10 at 2:37
    
Actually, I know it sounds stupid, but I would like to have something like: "You can support me by clicking the ad" on my website :) –  LightDark Dec 26 '10 at 12:54
    
Why not "you can support me by checking out my sponsors?" That would encourage legit clickthrus and wouldn't be interpreted by anyone as clickfraud promotion. –  Lèse majesté Dec 26 '10 at 14:45
    
You're saying I can refer to the random ads on my page as my sponsors? I don't think Google AdSense would like that, since there might be an exceptional high click-rate. –  LightDark Dec 26 '10 at 16:27

Any business/persons that support you financially to allow you to provide a free service is by definition a "sponsor". That said, Google doesn't like publishers drawing any kind of "unnatural" attention to ads. But there are other networks that probably don't care if you encourage legitimate click-throughs. The point is, you should be encouraging users to take a look at the sponsor's product, not simply encouraging users to click on the ad. The latter has no value to advertisers. –  Lèse majesté Dec 29 '10 at 0:54

Commission Junction encourages affiliate relationships which might be closer to what you're looking for (i.e. advertising integrated with your site content) though you should look at the disclosures necessary to comply with FTC guidelines if you are operating in the United States.
