Here’s a favorite term of those wanting to make money off the Web, including probloggers and webmasters. There’s nothing wrong with earning a living, but sometimes reading how to “monetize this” and “monetize that” can get tiring. And there is only a limit to how much adverts on websites one can take.
In business, monetization refers to the process of deriving revenue from some group of customers that would not otherwise generate revenue for the business. The problem of monetizing a group of web site users is one that many companies failed to solve during the dot-com bust, and folded. These customers are often monetized today by placing advertisements on web sites. – Wikipedia
Pretty soon everywhere you go online, there will be advertisements plastered all over your screen!
