Contextual Ads Networks
Contextual ads network system scans the text of a website for keywords and shows advertisements to the webpages based on those keywords
For example, if you are running a blog on cricket, and a user land on your website through a search engine.
The ad network may show an ad of a cricket product, coaching, news, etc.

Rather they show eye-catching products and news ads for higher click-through rate (CTR).
