best affiliate platforms 2022
I have compiled a list of some of the most commonly used affiliates in the famous world in this post.

I'd be happy if you find an appropriate affiliate for your blog.

Affiliates & online advertisements can be divided into three types according to the conditions under which the commissions are generated.


Cost-Per-Mille/Pay-Per-Mille (Mille means 1,000)

It means that for every 1,000 impressions of your ad, you will be paid a predetermined amount of money. 

The price varies from a few cents to several dollars.

Suitable sites

  • Sites that are already established and content-oriented

Suitable for sites with content and design that matches the advertiser's brand image, and especially recommended for burner ads with visual effects.


  • The most advantageous or least risky form for affiliate bloggers
  • You will be paid based on the number of times you view the ad, so practically every ad you view will lead to income
  • If the site has a certain amount of page views, the income is stable and predictable


  • The most lucrative and least risky form for affiliate bloggers

Affiliate Companies


  • The largest and most famous company for selling and buying advertising space
  • 25% of the sales price is BuySellAds' commission
  • Basically, for sites that are mainly written in English
  • Only sites with the original domain can register
  • There is no minimum page view for registration, but 10,000PV/month is the minimum

Amazon CPM

  • Only a few people authorized by Amazon U.S. can post CPM ads
  • Depending on your browser, you may or may not see the tabs for placing ads; for example, you can only see them in Firefox



Cost-Per-Click/Pay-Per-Click is pay-for-performance advertising most widely used in the United States.

It is the most commonly used type of advertising in the U.S. It is so-called click-based advertising.

Suitable sites

  • Sites that are readable and content-oriented, such as diary-type blogs

Any site that meets the standards of each advertising company (adult sites, sites with violent content, etc., are not acceptable) is acceptable. It is suitable for burner-type ads and list-type and text-type ads.


  • Easy to start, even for new blogs
  • The number of clicks can be reliably traced
  • Ads are delivered based on the contents of the site and the visitor's search history, making ad management easy
