You had made your awesome blog and pleased the readers. But now it is the time for your readers to earn money for you! Its the time to monetize your blog.
Monetising means to add adverts, promotional texts, etc. to earn big bucks from your blog. For monetising , you have to first choose a advertiser that will display advertisements in your blog.

Cost Per Click (CPC) refers to the actual price you pay for each click in your pay-per-click (PPC) marketing campaigns.
