It looks like advertising isn't the only way way to fund your favorite sites anymore. Google announced a new program called Contributor today that allows people to contribute money to participating websites via a monthly subscription to get rid of ads.
In typical Google fashion, the service will be a slow rollout, requiring an invitation at first. After you receive an invitation, you'll have the option to buy a subscription that runs between $1 and $3 per month that will go to participating websites in lieu of traditional advertising.
Google clearly labels this as an experiment, and that is made even more evident by the slow rollout and relatively small number of initial participating websites. Still, this is definitely an interesting new take on funding the web, and it will be cool to see if it gains traction.
If you want to give it a shot, you can head over to the source link below to read about the service yourself and request an invitation.
