Bloggers have long ago learned to cash in on adsense. It’s a great way for others to monetize and make money from their website and Blogs. Over the course of time many other programs have rivaled Google but the newest one on the market is widget bucks.
Widget bucks works very similar to Google but with some major differences. Widget bucks will currently only work on a blog like wordpress, blogger and typepad. This may change in the near future but for now that’s the way it is. Adsense shows relevant ads in text based format or graphic format depending on what the publisher chooses. With Widget Bucks they only have graphic ads but it’s a little more then that. Think of Widget bucks as a widget that shows current pricing of items as well as pictures and then rotates it through into the next add.
Widget bucks let you choose what type of products to show on your blog. After all no one knows better then you what your readers like. You have many different add layout to choose from and can customize the look to some extent to match your site.
With widget Bucks being new no one has gotten a check yet. I can’t say no one but it just opened up and it takes 45 days from the end of the month till you get paid. So the first checks should start rolling out in mid December.
So will this new adsense competitor be able to hang with the big boys?
Only time will tell. Of all the programs out there competing with adsense, widget bucks has a good chance because it’s more of a niche that was missing in the market. The Widget is not for every blog out there. If your blog is not product based you may be better off with adsense. If however you have a blog about wifi or about electronics I bet Widget Bucks would make an impression on your readers.
Another thing to mention is widget bucks currently offers a 25.00 sign up bonus. While this should not heavily influence your decision it’s a little icing on the cake. You do have to make at least $50.00 before you can be paid out so that 25.00 get’s you half way on your way. Adsense minimum payout is 100.00 so smaller bloggers may find this to be a better route to go.
