Earn $$ with WidgetBucks!

WidgetBucks is the new advertising network that features a widget that displays shopping advertisement. WidgetBucks is CPC so you would make money when someone else clicks on the ads.

WidgetBucks can be used on Typepad, Movable Type, Blogger and Wordpress. Like Adsense, WidgetBucks comes in various sizes, 160×600, 300×250, 728×90, 468×60 and 660×330.

WidgetBucks Ad Sizes

Unlike Google’s Adsense wherein a bot crawls your site for your keywords and finds relevants ads for your website, WidgetBucks can either use MerchSense, probably a bot, to crawl your page and find relevant products to include in your widget or you can choose a category. This gives publishers a greater control on the ads.

WidgetBucks Features

Publishers and bloggers who would like to sign-up would instantly get a $25 bonus. That’s not all WidgetBucks’ payout is only 50$ so you are already half-way there just by signing up.

WidgetBucks also has a referral program wherein affiliates receive 10% referral fee based on the commissions earned by the people they refer for a full 12 months.

I think WidgetBucks is a good source of income to supplement Google’s Adsense program.
