website advertisments cost

Postby zetreque on April 3rd, 2016, 1:51 am 

I know website owners make money for clicks to banner ads on their website. Adsense and whatnot keep track of all that stuff for them too I think. I don't know. I haven't done that kind of thing in a while.

I wonder.... if I don't like a company... If I click their banner, do they have to pay for the click?
Sometimes I will click banners of companies I hate just to make them pay the owner of the site I like and I have absolutely no interest in the company whos banner I clicked.

Is that logical. Does that make sense? Like I am trying to do the opposite here. Make companies I don't like spend their advertising dollars to people whos websites I like. In a small way does that move money from the company advertising to the website owner? Does anyone know the details behind this?
