As you know I'm always searching for new methods to gain traffic on my blog. I was searching the internet, and I found some Free Advertsing Networks. You may, or may not have noticed those small widgets on the bottom of my page. So, I tried a lot of these free advertising networks. I can tell you most of them didn't bring in the visitors I expected.
But there was one exception called Adgridnetwork. It brought in a consistent amount of traffic compared to other free advertising networks. I was pretty satisfied with my increasing traffic. I threw all of the other free advertisement networks into the garbage can. Most of the free advertising networks had very amateuristic sites

How do free advertisement networks work?
It's really simple and plain. First you add your site to their network, write a little review of your blog. So people can get an impression of your blog. After the registration you will be able to display targeted ads on your blog. These ads will contain URLs of other more or less related blogs. At the same time you will have your own ad displayed on several other sites. The ads, work like normal ads, but they don't generate money. The more clicks you have on your ad the more your ad will be displayed on other blogs.
To encourage our user's to take their advertising campaigns seriously (as opposed to just slapping the Ad Code on some hidden page where visitor's won't see it), we have established a Merit-Based Ranking System. The idea is simple: Sites that generate higher numbers of ad clicks will be displayed more on other sites.
