Yes, you're right, 99 out of 100 banners are annoying.
Still, it is nice to earn money from the traffic you generate
and pay for.
If you could pick the banners for your site by hand, you might even be able to turn them into real additions to the site.
The services listed here all offer you a choice of which banners you want on each page.
Adding banners that compliment the content of each page will
not only be an asset to the page, it will also increase the income you get from the banners. It only makes sense that the closer the banner matches the content the more likely it is that the visitor will click it.
Banner Ad Types

Typical payments are between 1 and 10 cents per click for small sites - $1 for big sites (over 1,000,000 hits a month).

The industry average for bigger sites is +$30 per thousand. The market leaders charge +$50 with Yahoo at the top charging $100 for 1000 exposures.
Pay per Buy.
(If the visitor signs up or buys something on the site you refer them to.) Payments for this vary a lot but typical values are between $1 and $5 each.
