In the last few years, it has become unbelieveably easy, and inexpensive, for almost any business to have a personalized website by which they can advertise, directly interact with the customer, and provide details about their product and services. Regular newsletters, offers, discounts can be pasted on any website to increase the interest of the website visitors.

Since it's easy to reach just about any kind of audience with information about any kind of business, the possibility of misuse is always present. Based on this, Internet advertising is generally classified into two kinds of advertisement, legal online advertising and illegal online advertising. Legal online advertising includes online advertising directories, search engine advertising, e-mail advertising, and desktop advertising. Illegal advertising is more commonly know as spamming. This is usually done by altering some system settings with the help of external applications after which pop-ups are sent to a particular network or computer. The external applications are known as adware or spyware. Some of these are really harmful, the most famous being Trojans, which are very hard to uninstall and remove from the system.

With the increase in technology, special effects are being used to make advertisement more interesting. Vivid colors, good page layout and lots of imagination is involved. Typically Adobe Flash is used to design advertisements these days. Depending on the technology being used to design advertisements can be classified into various categories.

Banner ads are animations displayed on the website usually created in HTML or Eudora. There is a range of type and sizes of the ads. Trick banner ads are banner ads that have an extra functionality of dialog boxes and buttons and are displayed as an alert or error message.

A pop-up is an advertisement displayed in a new window that covers up the active web page. A pop-under advertisement opens in another window that is under the active web page and can be seen after the present window is either closed or minimized.

Interstitial ads are those that are displayed before directing over to the desired page.

Wallpaper ads form the background of the web page.

The ads that float on the screen are known as a floating ad.

Polite ads download on a low pace without interrupting the normal functioning of the website.

An ad that enlarges and changes the contents of the page being displayed is known as expanding ad.

Advertisements which are displayed in a video form on a website is known as a video ad.

There are many ways by which advertising slots can be purchased on Internet like CPM, CPV, CPC, CPA, CPL and CPO.

CPM, or cost per mil, is an abbreviation which means that the advertiser will pay for a particular number of people to whom the advertisement will be exposed. CPV, or cost per visitor means that the advertiser will pay for the people to whom the advertisement was delivered. CPC or cost per click means paying for the number of clicks made on the advertisement by the visitors. Although the advertisement is put up on the website, the amount is paid only after the visitor clicks on the URL of the advertisement. CPA or cost per action means that the advertisement publisher bears all the charges of the advertisement, but he or shee gets paid only if the visitor clicks on the advertisement and purchases a product or signs-up for a service. CPL, or cost per lead is similar to CPA, only that the visitor does not have to necessarily buy anything; he or she can simply apply to get regular newsletters and special offers. With CPO, or cost per order, the advertiser pays each time an order is placed.

Online advertisements cannot only be used to promote a product or service but in fact they can be used for purposes like promoting charity and spreading education.
