What Is Pay Per View? Pay per view is one of the many models in affiliate marketing employed to generate traffic which uses advertising software or Adware.
It is often confused with pay-per-click.
While they have similarities, they are technically different.
Pay per view is when affiliates and advertisers get paid for every view of ads usually pop-ups and pop-unders in a landing page or website.
Pay per click, on the other hand, it when affiliates and advertisers get paid for every click on a listing that redirects audiences to another page or website.
Pay per click also technically involves the use of Google AdWords and AdSense.
How Does Pay Per View Work? An internet user usually agrees to install Adware into the computer usually in exchange of gifts such as downloaded screensavers and games.
With the adware, the internet user can view pop-ups and pop-unders every time they visit a certain website that hosts such ads.
Adware is completely legitimate and pay per view ads are not considered as the typical pop-ups and pop-unders that usually get blocked.
The pop-ups and pop-unders contain your landing page and appear on the screen when an internet user enters a URL into the browser or search for queries in Google.
When the landing page launches, the page is basically considered as viewed.
Whether or not the internet user chooses to read the content of the page or closes the page, the landing page has been viewed.
Every view is equivalent to a certain commission.
