Layah - Just below the little window where you type up your posts, there are a couple of small advertisements. They are links to "sponsored links" from Google. Websites with sponsored links pay Google a few cents anytime a hit to their site originates from Google. If you click on one of the ads, Mudcat gets a portion of Google's cut.
Google tries to make the ads topical by keying content to key words in recent posts. So if I just happen to mention something about collectible action-figures in this post and Google keys on it, the next poster may see ads for suppliers of collectible action-figures.
