What’s the best way to monetize your blog?

How I monetized a blog in 30 days: what worked, and what didn’t

#1 – Remove as much crap as possible from the sidebar. #2 – Use affiliate links to customize the ads for each post . I know it’s easy to just paste some AdSense code into your site and let Google figure out what to show your visitors, but I found that it’s better to target the ads yourself. #3 – Have the ads scroll with the page.
