How do you make money on ads?

Can someone explain to me how one makes money if you implement adds in your ios app?

For example I plan to add an adbannerview to my app. Do I get money everytime that ad has been viewed or do the user actually have to click on it?

I also plant to add a full adView to my app, when a player makes a move in my game. Do I then get money everytime that full ad has been viewed, and possible some extra if the user click on it?

Do I get money when a user downloads my app?

Is there any other way to make money on ads?

Hi Simon, there are several ways that I know you could advertise on your app. The first is using Google Adsense, which I'm pretty sure costs money, I don't know. The second is when someone, let's say Bethesda Software asks you if they can advertise on your app, you could hardcode the ad into your app, but it would become tedious when someone else wants to advertise, but it would work. I bet you that there are other ways to advertise.
