There are a lot of great opportunities for bloggers in Ads and Sponsorships. If you’re making a career out of blogging, it’s important to know the ins and outs of how to place ads and sponsors links in your blog’s sidebar, as well as the footer, in between posts, and the leaderboard sections of your blog.

Sidebar sponsors are the most common of the typical “sponsor links”. Whether someone paid you to add their image, or you decided to ad swap with another blog, this type of sponsor is the easiest to add to your blog.
You can simply add the image and link into your sidebar, using standard HTML, or you can manage your sponsors by adding a plugin that helps manage and track clicks for you as well. Recently, someone recommended U-Ads, Ad King Pro, and AdRotate for managing Ads through Wordpress*. If you’re running on a different platform, you can also sign up for Google AdSense to help manage your sponsor images, clicks, and impressions.
*Be sure to check with your Web Designer on the compatibility of these plugins with your current theme.
