If I were an advertiser and you were doing this I would stop advertising with you.
It is against the rules of most major ad centers for a good reason.
The money isn't free, it doesn't come from a magic ad tree, there are actual businesses paying for ads, they aren't interested in getting a page load from the ad, they are interested in selling something. You aren't saying, "hey buy from my advertisers", you are saying, "hey click this link so I get money".
Asking people to click a link to take money from the advertiser and put it in your pocket when they have ZERO intention being receptive to the offering never-mind considering buying something is something I don't agree with.
Put the shoe on the other foot, if you were spending $500 a month on ads and found that a good chunk of your ad budget was going to a site where the users had no interest in your products or offerings but only clicked to give the site owner your money what would you think of that?
