CPA marketing is a less famous cousin.

If you want to put your content on authority sites that already have a steady stream of traffic – get paid for it- then you may be interested in revenue sharing with authority sites.  By posting your content on authority sites you’ll get more traffic than if you posted it on your own blog(unless of course. you had an authority site of your own ). In return, you get a cut of the money they make.

There are literally hundreds of revenue-sharing sites, but it’s best to put your effort behind reliable, proven winners.

This means generating more traffic and  (most importantly ) profit from your site. It’s MUCH easier to flip a site that’s already a consistent earner than one with potential.
