Google AdSense is a program which is running by Google. This allows publishers registered in the Google Network of content websites to serve with automatic text, image, video or interactive media advertisements which are targeted to website’s content and audience. These advertisements are maintained, sorted and administered by Google
After registering your website in this program, you can generate revenue by either per-clicks or per-impression basis. You can place as many AdSense ads on a single page. The content-based advertisements can be targeted for users with certain interest. The targeting can be CPM (cost per thousand impressions) or CPC (cost per click). With CPM earnings are based on per thousand impressions not just on few views and impressions, while with CPC earnings are based on per clicks.
There are different ad sizes which are available for content ads. Also the ads can be text, image, animated picture, video or rich media ads. You can also change whether to show either text or multimedia ads or both of them.

Do you know how much a sidebar banner advertisement will cost?
It’s around 3 figures US Dollars per month, it could be $100 or it could be more depending on the company
But mostly banner networks set a minimum monthly traffic amount, which is fairly high. It is quoted that $5 amount per one thousand impressions (CPM) i.e., $500 bucks in a month for a single ad space. Also if your website gets a tons of traffic from different sources, your banner pricing could go up as high as $5000 per months. But again if there is salvation then there would be some downfall also, if your website doesn’t get a lot of traffic then you can’t expect to earn big amount.
But But But!! You can also name a price (based on what you think it’s worth or what the competition must be charging) and get paid at the beginning of each month. Ad space pricing is generally determined according to ad format, placement and website’s traffic.
