Contributor aims to provide site visitors less ads on the web and at the same time more earnings for the webmasters and bloggers. Webmasters can easily be a part of the Contributor and start earning right from their Websites with a completely different way.
Every blogger out there knows that to run a blog is not free. It requires time to reserch the topics, knowledge to provide accurate information but the most importantly, blogging requires money. So where does this money come from? Websites monetization programs. Most bloggers use the platforms like Google Adsense and show ads on thier website or blog. In return they get some money each time when a visitor clicks the ads. Although this is how Google Adsense work, CPC basis. But not all visitors like those ads that eat up their Internet bandwith sometime or affect the interaction with the site badly. So visitors use plugins like Ad-blocker. Ad-blocker tries to block each ads on the page that user visits. It does make a blog visitor happy but at the same time, blogger is disappointed because blocking Ads means no money and no money means no more content writing. So to satisfy both, the visitors and bloggers/webmasters Google has come up with Contributor.
What Is Google Contributor?
For many of you Google Contributor is a new name but soon you’ll be familiar with all the stuff that Google Contributor provides.

What Ads Google Contributor Blocks When The Contribution Is Made?
Google Contributor aims to provide less ads on the websites but then a question arises, what Ads will be blocked after the visitor has contributed.

Any website that runs Google Ads like Google Adsense and DoubleClick for publishers, will block out the ads for you. So you get more friendly interaction with the sites.

Google Contributor For Publishers

Will There Be Any Ads After The Becoming Contributor?
