3 useful adservers for bloggers

Once your blog begins to grow, it is wise to rotate ad networks, use affiliate banners and even sell ads directly to an advertiser. While doing this it is very time consuming to change html codes everytime and exchange 5 to 6 mails from advertisers and also removing ads every month.

There are some free and paid tools that can help you automate this process and help you save precious time. I have managed to collect 3 of them which I think are good. Of course, there are many others which have similar features, but these are the most used.
