It works for many other content management systems too like Joomla, Drupal, etc. Its feature list is awesome – you even have a built in affiliate system.

PHPbay is another plugin made by the same company that does PHPzon. The plugin allows you to easily insert products from eBay within your posts or via a sidebar ad display. It takes advantage of the eBay partner network and is an excellent supplemental income stream for the various blogs that I run. I use this on almost every single product oriented blog that I own, because it’s an easy way to supplement an income stream. I’ve found that using more than one Adsense unit per page leads to lower earnings via Adsense so I like to use this plugin and get additional earnings from the eBay partner network.
AdSense Made Easy
Google AdSense ads are one of the most common ways for bloggers to make money. While easy to use, beginning bloggers can easily get a little hung up trying to get these ad units onto their site, and this is just one way in which AdSense Made Easy can help.
This plugin lets you add AdSense units to any widgetized area of the theme. All you need is a Google AdSense account and this plugin. It lets you not only place the ads, but it also offers you all of the same functionality you get directly from the Google AdSense site. AdSense made easy makes making money simpler.
All-in-One SEO Pack
Another great SEO plugin used by many of the top bloggers online. The All in One SEO Pack is a tool which allows you to create effective SEO for your site automatically (you do have to do a little work though). It is a very well built and in depth service which provides you with some great ways to tap into your SEO which may have been hidden to you before. This will save you some time; as well as helping you to perform better user searches.
When you display affiliate banners, it is very nice to be able to have your ads rotating so your readers will not always see the same banner every time he’ll visit your blog. That’s exactly what the AdRotate plugin do: Automatically rotate your ads.
