Cost Per Impression or CPM advertisements are another way of making money with your website.
Cost Per Impression (CPM) - is an Internet advertising model used on websites, in which advertisers pay for the number of times an ad is show regardless of whether it is clicked on or not.
The style of campaign known as CPM pertains to selecting and targeting a demographic much like in PPC campaigns, but in this instance you are billed for each impression instead of being billed only for clicks. Impression-based campaigns tend to be very cheap; in many cases, you can have your ad seen thousands of times for less than a dollar. This also means that while your ad is running, you can usually monitor the statistics such as click through rate (CTR) and make any budgetary changes as necessary – before massive amounts of money have been spent. Impression-based campaigns are therefore ideal for those on a budget.
