1 new revenue source for your sites: Contributor Help

https://support.google.com/contributor/answer/6286709#badge Contributor—A new revenue source for your sites What is Contributor? Contributor is a new source of revenue for your sites, funded directly by your site visitors. With Contributor, users pick a monthly contribution level (either $2, $5, or $10) and those funds are used to pay for your site—instead of ads. The result is that users see fewer ads and you still get paid. Here’s how it works: when Contributor users visit a site in Google’s network, their monthly contribution is used to bid on their behalf in the ad auction—so they end up buying the ad slot rather than a traditional advertiser. The more they contribute, the fewer ads they see, and you still get paid. Share Contributor with your visitors Contributor unlocks a new way for users to support publishers like you—helping you thrive and focus on what you do best, creating content.
