    Adsense is a cost per click (CPC) program, not an affiliate program.

  • Google Affiliate Network which is a subset of Google Adsense. Easy to use from my experience with new publishers added weekly.

I use Amazon Affiliate Program on one of my websites, and find their aStore (iframe shop in your website) especially interesting.

But in general, when you have a product that you are writing about -- try going to the company webpage and check if they have a link to their affiliate program at the bottom.

Most big companies use CommissionJunction, some smaller ones use Google Affiliate Network ... but there are hundreds of those out there. The important bit is to read the terms of service and note what will you be getting from the clicks on the affiliate links.


Adscluster: They have a wide range of publishers, tailored websites and blogs and they pay great comissions to affiliates. Contextua: They have an innovative way of advertising via linking words. Google Affiliate Network: Easy to use though comissions are poor.
