This can be done by advertising blocks or banner advertising on your web page, “in-text” advertising on blog, forums, social network sites and really anywhere that you can get away with posting an advert without getting your account suspended.

These advertisements are generated by search engines companies and online advertising companies specializing in contextual ad optimization to ensure that the adverts that appear on your web site are relevant to the content of the site/blog/forum/other. Their advertisers pay them to advertise on the internet, and the revenue is shared with you.
