EVERYONE Should get Paid from Ads

I can’t remember what podcast I was listening to when I made these notes but it gave me a great idea for a way the everyone can make some money from ads. Basically someone has to come up with an ad system that the end user, the person who is being marketed to, give a bit of information and is willing to have some general information collected about and they get a small cut of the ad revenue. I’m not a big fan of ads but if I was making something from it, I wouldn’t mind a banner or small ad in a corner of a site. The end user could maybe even have some options as to which format of ads they see and that would determine different levels of money they could make..So I’m would guess this would work best if it used a browser plug in that tracked everything, cookies I don’t think are reliable enough! So the site would have code to serve the ad, and it could even serve a generic ad for traffic that doesn’t have the plugin. It could easily be implemented on WordPress blogs as a plugin that could either display a widget in the side bar, a banner across the top, what ever the site author, advertiser, ad serving company or users has set up!.To give a bit more credit, does anyone remember that old dial-up ISP that used to offer to pay you to use them? You fired up their dial-up client and it dialed in to them opened a browser window that had a banner across the top and you could surf all you wanted for free and if you spent enough time they’d send you a cheque, typical minimum dollar amounts applied. Either way, I’d probably mess with the system, I doubt I’d serve ad’s on any of my sites but the level of niche targeting and depending on the spits might make something like this very atractive for everyone involved, don’t you?
