Free Services: Shrink URLs

One topic I haven´t discussed much here is affiliate marketing as a way to monetize a blog. As you know, top bloggers earn good paychecks trough affiliate marketing and selling advertising space in their blogs.
I think affiliate programs work best for those who have a big audience, and the capacity for recruiting many new members to sell a certain product. The possibility of earning a good amount of money trough this type of programs depends on two combined factors: The capacity for recruiting new members, and selling the product itself. There are many different types of affiliate schemes, a good criteria to choose could be:

~ Those who have products that people are looking to buy;
~ Those who pay a higher percentage and don´t require minimum or average sales ;
~ The programs that offer the possibility of earning residual income;
