PPC programs are the kind of advertisement programs in which you will be paid for each click on the published ads on your site. The best example for this would be the many Adsense ads that you see in many of your favourite blogs. You might already be using it in one of your sites probably.
Usually, the PPC ads are not available as independent programs for different companies. They will be part of an advertisement network which works with a lot of businesses. Depending on many factors like the domain of your blog, what the post is about the post, the location of the reader etc., they will decide which ads to show a particular user.
How much money you will make per click of an ad will depend on many factors. There are some fields where advertisers pay more. So if in your posts these high paying keywords are present then you may get more per click. You can even get more than 100$ per click. Another major factor is the users country. Usually, the advertisements targeted for the developed nations will be paying more.
One disadvantage of PPC programs is that many of them will be blocked by the users with Adblock services. But from personal experience, more than 90% goes through in my case. Also note that most of these networks do not support free domains like .blogspot.com.
Disclaimer: Some of the sites and links to those sites are affiliate links and will earn a commission for me when you join their program.
If you are using WordPress, then i recommend the free Advanced Ads Plugin. It will help you a lot in placement of the Ads.
In this post, I will be listing out some of the best pay per click affiliate programs out there.
Google Adsense is a popular PPC ad network coming from the search giant itself. Whatever be the niche you are writing in, there will be suited ads due to the numerous advertisers working with this network.
And there are a number of apps like the LongTailPro which can help you in finding the best keywords and how much is keyword worth. Or you could use the Adwords itself for this.
But it is not easy to get approved for the Adsense network these days. Especially for a beginner. If the blog as some posts and domain registered for some time then your chances will be more. And if you are rejected, you can apply using another mail id anyways.

They will run some optimisation tests and you can check the results and make changes to your site if needed. Once approved you can place the codes in all your sites. It will be shown separately in your dashboard. You can use Adsense ads and Chitika ads together.
Their reporting dashboard gives you the analysis of all the views, clicks etc. on your site. But some of the advanced reports available in Adsense are missing here.
You also have the options to filter out all the ads having an particular pattern in them.
Their preferred mode of payment is via Payoneer.
Propeller ad network is another easy to joing PPC program.
An interesting ad type is the native subscription type. When a user visits your site, a popup will ask them if they want to allow push notifications. And this allows the site to send notifications on mobile or desktop. So even if the user is not on your site at the moment, you can earn money. You can also change the frequency of these notifications. This can help in getting an extra revenue, especially if the majority of your readers are using mobile devices.
Like Chitika, they also prefer Payoneer payments. Wire transfer is also available if you have a minimum 0f 550 USD in your balance.
They provide a number of ad types, but not the banner type. It is on development as of now.
