The important question to address is: How much can you earn through an Ad trafficking network? The answer to this question is it totally depends on the amount of traffic received by your blog. If you are getting millions of page views on a monthly basis with their ad networks, it is possible to make more than $10 or $20 on a monthly basis.

It is equally important to understand that there are certain ad networks that perform way better than others. Simple experimentation is all you need to figure out the best way to monetise your blog.

It is also critical to understand the mechanism through which ad networks earn money. It has mostly been observed that Pay Per Click (PPC) or Cost Per Thousand is hot favourite amongst bloggers. PPC connotes to the money you can generate per thousand views the ad receives. In case you are new to blogging, it is important to know that it is not possible to earn money by clicking on your ads. Alternatively, asking your friends or family members to click is also out of the question. If the ad networks know this they will not hesitate to take away your account and never give it back.
