10 Best Google Adsense Alternatives (2014)

“Your Google Adsense account has been disabled or temporarily banned”.

Updated (2014):

  • Added new Affiliate Networks and updated some recommendations and programs for 2013.
  • Adbrite is dead as of February 2013
  • Chitika went up to number 2
  • Adversal added to number 3

What a nice phrase on an email to start the day huh? Well, consider you’re not alone. Everyday, hundreds or thousands of accounts are being banned from Google’s Adsense program. Why? I can’t tell you specifically. Either there’s something wrong with the web you’re putting you ads on, or you just simply missed one rule from Google’s TOS.

Instead of crying or bashing Google in multiple forums (actually, this is a very bad idea), remember the world is not over yet, and there are plenty of alternatives out there to try. Google was just your first one, and you failed.

So, stand up, be proactive and act professional! There’s no time to lose.

 

10 best Google Adsense Alternatives

Here are some of the best Google Adsense Alternatives you can try to monetize your website without using Google Adsense, and I’ll tell you how they work and why you should consider them, so let’s start:

10. Infolinks

Infolinks is a Pay per click advertisement network that allows you to make money through your blog based on specific keywords. Infolinks indexes your pages and automatically add some hiperlinks in your text. Of course, since this isn’t a CPM program, it might take you a while to start earning a regular passive income through it, but it’s still an alternative to Adsense. They can pay you via Paypal and there’s an initial limit of $50. Infolinks is great for big websites, but if you’re barely starting keep reading.

9. Kontera

Kontera is a known network very similar to Infolinks. It’s also a text based network that adds links to your content based on specific keywords showing a doubled-underlined text and pop-up ads. This is also a pay-per-click program, so it depends on your CTR percentage to earn money. However, Kontera is definitely a better option if you have a small blog or you’re just starting your website, because it allows small sites to be added to your network. they can pay you via check or Paypal with the same $50 initial limit, and you can use it with Adsense at the same time.

8. Amazon Associates

Google Adsense Alternatives Amazon

You can make a good amount of money from Amazon, especially in Christmas and other holidays

Amazon is the biggest online store in the world, so they must be doing something good. Well, if you have a website that talks about any product that can be found on Amazon, then Amazon associates could work for you. Amazon allows you to put dynamic image ads to your blog, so that you can promote them and while this isn’t a Pay-per-click or CPM program, it will pay you a small commission for everything they sell from your links. So let’s say you have a blog about Apple products and you put an ad driving them to buy an iPod or just a cable. If they buy it, an small commission will be for you. So if you sell a $10 cable you might receive a few cents, but sell a $1500 Laptop and you might receive $100. The good thing is that everything they buy through your link (even if it isn’t the product you recommended at first) will generate a commission for your. the only con I find with Amazon, is that they need to send you a check that could take weeks to arrive to your home, unless you live in the United Stated of America where you can provide your Bank account. You can use this with Adsense at the same time.

7. BuySellAds

If you’re thinking on selling ad spaces from your website but you have no clients to land on BuySellAds might be the right network for you. buySellAds allows you to sell a space unit to many customers depending on the kind of traffic they want. so, if your blog has space for 4 ads, you can publish them here and wait until someone wants to buy your ad. While this can lead to a good income, this also means you need a good quantity of visitors and page views if you want to be appealing on BSA. BSA pays 75% of the revenue generated and you can get your payment via paypal twice a month, without any starting limit.

6. Text Link Ads

Text Link Ads allow you to sell text ads from your sites. The price of your ads varies between your Page Rank, Alexa Rank, traffic, Social media and everything. So, the higher PR you have, the more expensive links you can sell. TLA pays you via check, Paypal or TLA voucher and they offer 50/50 revenue with a minimum limit of $25. You can sell up to 10 contextual advertisements from your site on TLA.

5. Clicksor

Clicksor is ad advertising network that allows you to serve text, contextual and popup ads. With more than 150,000 pages working on Clicksor, it’s became quite a good alternative to Google Adsense. They share up to 60% of the revenue depending on the ad (popup ads usually generate more) and they can pay you via check or Paypal with a minimum of $50. Sign up in 2 minutes with Clicksor here.

4. Qadabra

Qadabra is a performance based advertisement network created for publishers to monetize their websites and traffic. I recently discovered Qadabra and their platform is simple and easy to use. Qadabra provides different ad sizes and they have a pop up option. They support international traffic with great fill rates and they pay via: paypal ($1 minimum payout), payoneer prepaid card ($20 minimum) and wire transfer ($500 minimum). So it’s a great option for starters if you’re using paypal. I got approved for Qadabra in less than 2 minutes. Register here.

3. Adversal

Adversal is a great alternative of Adsense and works as great as Chitika. They have good banners and the CTR and revenue adapts to get the best results for your website. I’ve seen the Ads on Adversal have a good CTR and they have good image ads too. This is probably the Ad network which seems to work better for those looking for a replacement of Google Adsense. It works decently with other languages too (Chitika doesn’t).  You account gets approved really fast and they also have Pop under /CPM ads as an option. Note: Adversal requires a website with a minimum of 50,000 page views per month, but they have proven to work really well. They also pay via paypal. Sign up here.


2. Chitika

Google Adsense Alternatives Chitika

Chitika is the most similar ads network to Google Adsense

The reason I put Chitika on the number 3 of this list, is because Chitika is very similar to Adsense. they allow you to customize your ads, and it only serves contextual ads. One good thing is that you can use it along with Adsense and there are no problems at all. Chitika pays via Paypal ($10 USD minimum, which is good for starters) or via check ($50 minimum). If I were to recommend an ads service as an alternative to Adsense, Chitika would be my first choice, hands down. Chitika can pay you via paypal if you need. Sign up here and get your account approved fast and easily!

 

1. Affiliate Marketing

I’m leaving affiliate Marketing in the number 1 spot for many reasons. Affiliate Marketing means you’re selling a product or a service from another enterprise (which means you don’t have to develop it) and you earn a commission for that. You can find a lot of Affiliate Marketing programs on the net, and they can vary from selling a $10 small product up to selling a $300 software. The beauty of affiliate marketing is that the more you know and test a product or service, the more you can sell it.

Some affiliate programs can earn you more than $50 for each sale depending on the product and I truly recommend you test and backup your sales by using the product yourself (even though it’s not 100% necessary). If you are an authority in a niche, you can use it to boost your sales and grow even more. You can set affiliate links in banners, text, images and basically everywhere, and it can grow into a big passive income earner if done well. Some examples of people that have become very successful with affiliate Marketing are:

  • Pat Flynn from the Smart Passive Income blog
  • Michael Dunlop from the Income Diary
  • Darren Rowse from the Problogger Network
  • And more people that earn 6 figure incomes per month, mostly via passive income.

Some great Affiliate Marketing Networks are a great way to start your online journey, because you can look for products and advertise them on your website without having them, as long as they’re related to your niche. The best Affiliate Networks I know until now are:

  • Yesadvertising -> I’ve done good money promoting YesAdvertising campaigns
  • ClickBank -> Learn which products you should promote and make more money with CBEngine
  • Peerfly -> My favorite along with Yesadvertising. Their offers are top notch!

You just need to look out for the products or services related to your niche and find something to promote. Many affiliate Marketeers are earning tons of dollars from those affiliate networks only.

What can I learn from this?

Life can be rude sometimes. You Google Adsense account could have been banned because you didn’t catch a rule from the TOS, or maybe it was a mistake, however, you can’t always rely only on 1 solution. The secret word here is to “diversify”. Try to have as many income streams as you can by adding and testing different ad services, and you’ll find your way to the top. Those Google Adsense alternatives will help you develop as an Internet Marketeer even more.

Even if your Google Adsense account was banned, this is not the end of the world. In fact, it’s only the beginning ;)

    Firstly, the list is great with good descriptions. Secondly, most of the ad networks don’t pay good money for asian traffics. and in india, Flipkart affiliate programming generates more money than Amazon, as it is a well renowned brand in country.

  2. diigo says

    This really depends on your inventory, I’m having good results with veente.com, they kind of optimise using different networks (some of them are in this list), or at least that’s what they say.

    But no one is even close to Adsense…

  3. VENKATESH says

    hello,

    i am planing to start a social network site in 2 or 3 days.

    can you suggest me suitable adsense alternative.

  4. says

    Signed up using your referral link for Chitika. Just started using it yesterday. Thanks for this list of adsense alternatives!

  5. says

    Hi, nice article.
    i’m a italian technology blogger, owner of http://www.itscribe.com
    i was banned without a reason from adSense and i’m searching for alternative.

    my articles are italian language written , but there are a few of 100% italian alternatives.

    Adversal need a huge amount of visits : 50 000 / mounth . Maybe i can try next year …

    Chitika istead give me only full english text banner … useless for my visitors.

    • says

      Hello Andrea.
      Adversal doesn’t need 500k visits as far as I know.
      I applied with a simple website and got approved the next day.
      Did you try to apply already? Maybe they changed their TOS lately.

      • says

        Hi Servando, here https://www.adversal.com/publishers.html adversal speak about 50k views/mounth … but i will try :).

        for my website i have activated kontera link and i’m trying yashi advertising network. by now, yashi make 0.07$ / 1000 impressions, but this value is growing up : i started to try yashi 7 days ago, and 7 days ago the cpm was 0.01$ dollars / 1000 impressions.

        so i’m making some test.

  6. says

    I will be honest – I ditched ClickBank and AdSense altogether from my blog….reason being there are too many merchants who’s products and services either get banned or leave ClickBank and as for AdSense, it gives visitors to your website another route to click and leave your site. If you have affiliate programs and products already on your site, you are guaranteed to make more money with them than through AdSense, unless your are driving some serious traffic. As for InfoLinks, it just looks spammy and the keywords and ads that appear are not targeted most the time. I personally say just do away with ads and ad networks and focus on affiliate programs to monetize your blog that have one or few solid products to offer, because like I mentioned, you will make more money that way.

  7. says

    Nice article, I think Adversal is best alternative to adsense. Is it possible to get adsense account for one month old site or it requires more pages.
    Thanks in advance

  8. says

    Hi Silva,
    My old Adsense account disabled without any prior notice. Thanks for your very interesting alternatives of adsense. If I again apply for adsense with a new mail id, how much time it will take to approve?
    In the meantime, out of your 10 alternatives, which one is better for my blog. Please visit my blog http://ofcoursesolutions.blogspot.in/ and suggest me the best one.
    Thank you.

    • says

      Well, it takes a few days, but more important, they take some time until you start making money and get your address approval, which can take at least 1 month.
      Honestly, the best one similar to adsense is Chitika and Adversal, unless your blog is not in English, in which case it makes everything more difficult…

  9. Jonny says

    Actually, bashing Google is the ONLY alternative action you have for those banned. Appeal process is utter BS. Complete waste of your time and energy. 100% futile. Many people get banned outright simply because Google does not wish to pay YOU. It is that simple. Does that mean Google is refunding or crediting the advertisers? NO. Not at all. Google takes its share, bans YOU, and takes the advertisers’ money. Google won’t dare ban sites like Mashable.com or Plenty of Fish but Google will ban small blogs and websites simply because they are too cheap to pay you $500 to you.

  11. Marques Carano says

    Thank you so much for this. It was very informative. I’m new to blogging and am currently struggling with how to maximize revenue for my site. I’ve been seeing a lot of popular blogs with Remarkit ads. I’m not sure what Remarkit is, but I can’t find them in my search engine. Is this a better alternative, or….?? Please help.

    • says

      Haven’t heard of Remarkit, but did you check their website?
      It sounds like a remarketing too, but I could be wrong. The best thing for you here is to look for reviews about it.

  12. says

    Your page has been invaluable to me. It kicks royal b–. Thanks so much for your help if I waited for google the cows would never come home. I still have a lot to learn and so much more reading, but you gave me the starting point. Thanks again.

  13. says

    i worked with adsense for longtime. Recently, my acc was notify from GG that the content violated with Adsense TOS. I checked my site and seem every thing is OK. And don\’t know what google mean.I try to search on google with \”Adsense Alternatives\”, and thanks for your post. I found the good alternative adsense for me.If you want to ban from adsense immediately, you will continue with adsense. So for me, i stop my work with it.

  14. says

    Hi, my google adsense had been disabled today.

    Can anyone advise me, is there any good alternate for a chinese blogger from Malaysia?

    Thanks!!!

  15. says

    Hi, I’m writing blog in Chinese from Malaysia. I just received an email from Google Adsense that my account has been disabled today. I don’t know what happen though.

    Could you please advise me what kind of ads is suggested?

  16. says

    I was so disappointed from google adsense because they rejected my approval request saying that adsense crawler is unable to review the website…i didn’t get any help from the adsense forum regarding that..so i was searching for other alternatives and found this amazing article..thanks for sharing this..i will go for chitika and infolinks..

  17. says

    I work with chitika and adhitz and they work good for me. I think chitika is the best adsense alternative and their staff is also very professional.

  18. says

    Hi! I already have chitika and kryptoads on my blog. It’s good to know that chitika is a good site. Hope to be successful on this activity. I have an adsense account but that is a hosted account I created through youtube. When I created this blog, I tried to apply for a new account using new email. But I was notified that I already have an adsense account. Maybe i have to wait for six months before I apply it to become a regular account.

    Have a great day!

    • Praha says

      Hey Sharon,

      If you already have a hosted account, there is no need to make another Adsense account. All you have to do is upgrade your account from hosted account to a regular one.

      To do so, first login to your Adsense account. On the top, it should say Hosted account in red. Click the little question mark and there should be a link to upgrade.

      Provide them a good blog URL, with quality content, and Adsense should accept you.

      Praha

      • says

        Hi Praha. Thank you for sharing that useful information. I still need to learn a lot of things and the fact that I have an offline job makes my progress a little slow. Perhaps I need to build several sites before I could start earning from blogging. Anyway, as of now I am doing it as a hobby.

        Happy Valentine’s day!

        • Praha says

          Hey Sharon,

          Gotcha. I’m not a professional myself, but I’ve been around for a while. Would love to hear more about your work, and I’d be able to help.

          Maybe you can quit that day job soon ;)

          Email me at prahalad.pole@gmail.com

    What I learned from your post is – AMAZING!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
    WOW!
    My website is ‘dead’ as well as my 2 blogs. I hope your ‘lesson’ will improve all. This is going to be my only source of income and more important – my passion! In a few weeks I’ll try to do some changes.
    Best,
    Maya T.

  20. says

    I have experience with chitka which was not bad. Infolink also pay well if you have education related blog. Even with infolink i earn $300+ monthly.

  21. says

    Sadly in most of the cases Adsense is not allowed by TOR to be implemented with these options. However, could be good alternatives. Thanks for pointing out them.

  22. says

    Pocketcents are Fraudsters if some of the sites advice you to. My payment has not been made for 2 months and when I login the account statement says I have been paid. I have sent several emails for the past 2 months and have not received a reply. I hope someone take these internet fraudsters to task and put them behind bars.

    Every dollar is important to the webmaster and people such as pocketcents thrive on the hard work we do.

    • says

      You can try other services as well.
      Honestly, if you’re using them, you need to follow their guidelines. They aren’t as aggressive as many people think, but always read the TOS before doing anything with Google.

  23. says

    Hello Silva, i thought my name will be on the list, but alias, i was not mentioned on the top affiliate earners.
    Thanks for this adsense alternatives though, i really appreciate it.

  24. says

    Hello,

    i am also banned on google. But use some good alternatives like bidvertiser, B4PSAds, chitika i think good making some money but i have 4 websites and on each more than 1000 visitors everyday. Your traffic is very important.

  25. Jeff Gray says

    I am currently running adsense and I do things by the book. I also have affiliate links for related products but want to know if the revenue would be better using something else. I may try chikita thanks to your list.

    • says

      Hello Jeff.
      That’s nice to hear.
      Honestly, if you’re using Adsense and affiliate programs, you’re already set. Try new things isn’t bad, but that combo is great for money generation.

  26. brian says

    Hi,
    after being disabled by adsense I’ve tried nuxad.com .
    I think it is a good idea though it started few days ago.

  27. says

    I have tried every single thing on here, other than Chitika. I’ve always been wary of it, as it has never seemed like a top ad network, but I am definitely feeling tempted to try it out. Thank you for the list.

  28. says

    hi…Great post…
    i think chitika is good for new pubshers.just because its minimum payout 10$.i m using it for my wesite.
    I thinks it is best for me…

  29. says

    Hi, and thanks for the list!

    I think it speaks volumes that (at the time of writing this), you use Google AdSense ;) So from this, I take it that above all, you recommend AdSense?

    Thanks

  30. rajeev sagar says

    You missed to mention adhungama.com, they seem to be one of the most reliable ‘premium’ online advertising networks available for newbie bloggers and forums. Though most networks have stringent conditions for eligibility, adhungama just wants the publisher to have a clean site with quality content (at least thats been my experience with my clients who have moved to adhungama ).They have net-30 and minimum cash payout is jus 25 USD.

      • rajeev sagar says

        It works for everyone…they even accept blogspot blogs (3 of my friends got in)..the only limitation is that they don’t accept any adult content..but i guess thats good and helps to maintain quality..

  31. says

    I had that adsense account disabled issue a few years ago for an unknown reason, but I sent them an email and got the account re-enabled, much to our surprise. Thanks for these alternatives though. Affiliate is very good, but takes some work to get good at so many people don’t want to do it.

    • says

      Hello.
      Chitika provides you with the forms in the settings section.
      Download them, fill them and submit them in your account. That should be enough to get your approved in a few days.

  32. says

    Chitika sucks bc I got 650 pvs and 18 click and only generated $0.03! Same with Infolinks, they dont seem to pay much for a click. The job board (i have my name linked to) get about $20 a day w adsense but when I try IL or Chit I make max .20-1.00!

    I hate Google but the pay the best imo. That’s why I found my way here …to find better but see all the one I have already tried and imo they suck!

      • says

        Adsense is the only way to make good money. I’m using Adsense for my 3 websites and i earn $150-$200 a day. but before adsense i had try some bulshit kinda alternates like smowtions, Infolink, adfly, clicksor, etc. they all sucks, because they are generating only 5 to 6 dollars a day so far.
        That is why i only recommend Adsense.

  33. says

    Thanks Servando for sharing this informative article with us… Please tell me that what do you think about media.net ???!!! Is media.net is the best google adsense alternative…. ???

    • says

      Hello Deepak. I haven’t really used media.net to give my opinion. It looks more like an Ad network and it should be worth a try. I’ll update it after trying it, but it won’t be that soon.

  34. says

    Thank you so much for the amazing info. I joined a couple and have already been approved on my site. I wish I could have gotten adsense back, but I am guessing that will never happen even if my YT subscriber climbs. As for not these sites will have to do on my blog. Thank you again. Might have to come back to ask some questions.

  35. says

    Nice list of alternatives. As everyone said there is no good alternative to adsense at this moment. Some of the possible alternatives would be media.net, chitika, adversal, infolinks, edomz.

  36. says

    In the wake of adbrite’s demise, here’s a new one called SiteScout, highly recommended, i’m using their mobile adserver for mobile versions of my site. Any suggestions for ad service that bypass adblockers?

  37. says

    hello,
    hi please give me some important suggestions for me, i want to start make money with websites through google and other adsense alternatives,can you please which website i will start (or) give me topics for high revenue

    thank you….

  38. says

    Great List of lesser known google adsense alternatives. However I do agree that adsense still has the highest RPM/CPM and High CPC. For instance, my site recently went from 0.15 RPM to 1.5 RPM in 10 days.

    I’m currentl using clicksor and adroll, they’re highly recommend.

  39. says

    Thank you for the wonderful monetization options. Often times, it simply takes starting with one, but may not need to go too crazy since certain ad formats can distract from your page and annoy the visitor. This may potentially cause a lack of return to one’s page, so keep it simple, fun, attractive and engaging!

    • says

      Definitely true.
      In fact, I like to keep the ads on my sidebar as clean as possible and with a maximum of 3.
      Of course, my main source is affiliate marketing, so I don’t take a lot of value from ads from Adsense in this blog.

  40. says

    i think the adsense is more better dn others…..
    currently i am using chitka but thy are not paying good :(

    i tid many times to get adsense but thy always rejected my application even my site google ranking is 4/10

  41. says

    Hi,
    i’m the owner of assiemelosappiamo.blogspot.it , a technology blog. Google adsense banned me without a real reason, so i’m searching for alternatives.

    can i try to use at the same time http://www.simply.com/ for banner, Kontera and Chitika at the same time?

    i have 100 visits by day. How i can hope to earn?

    Thanks,

    bye.

    • says

      Hello.
      I haven’t used simply, but as long as they don’t look like a copy of Chitika or Kontera it should be fine. Even Adsense allows you to use chitika at the same time.
      About the visits, it really depends on the advertisers (the ads that appear on your page) and your traffic.
      It’s totally relative and difficult to know, and it also includes the CPC and CTR to (at least) make an average of your earnings.

  42. says

    I think Infolinks is the best alternative of google adsense. I Specially like the conclusion that ” Even if your Google Adsense account was banned, this is not the end of the world. In fact, it’s only the beginning ” Thanks for the Info.

  43. says

    Hi Servando! I was looking for something like this. But I really agree with some of comments in here. Adsense is really the best. Or better, for me it was… I also loose my adsense account they said I made click fraud, which it was false, of course . But they don’t care about what we say….

    • says

      I know. However, I think Amazon associates and affiliate marketing can get even better than Adsense when done well. it’s just that it’s not as easy as using Adsense, Chitika or others.

  44. Kiran says

    Your sharing valuable information thanks for sharing,Keep posting such type of information,This post helpful for who’s website or blog had refused or banned by Adsense,Antoher Google Adsense alternative is Yahoo! Bing Network (YBN),Technorati Media Exit Junction . . . . .

  45. says

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for first-time blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • says

      Hello Steve.
      Yeah, your comments were on the SPAM inbox. But I managed to get them out.
      Maybe you should be able to take advantage of my guide to create a profitable blog? You’ll receive it in your inbox at the moment you subscribe.

      Best Regards.

  46. Suraj says

    I think all google adsense alternatives is not profitable until, you have lots of visitor. but google have many rule to approve your account. so something is better then nothing.

  47. Robert Kennedy says

    I’ve found that MadAdsMedia.com has been a great Adsense replacement for me, after losing my Adsense account.

  48. says

    Hey , I’ve just joined the amazon affiliates and really want to know how much could I make if I get 1000 visitors per day. Please share your experience about amazon affiliates if you don’t mind . :)

  49. says

    According to me Buy Sell Ads and Info links are the Best and if we also have AdSense then using all 3 of then will bring maximum money as those 3 are best Ad networks :)

  50. says

    Great list of alternatives. It is a shame that Adbrite closed down, they were a great ad network to work with. I hope this doesn’t mean the end of any other ad networks.

  51. says

    I’m not sure why but I don’t trust websites which display ads other than Adsense. Only the highest quality and honest websites display Adsense. Adsense is the best!

    • says

      Actually as the internet grows and google becomes bigger, they too also only want the bigger fish. You will see many more advertising networks popping up. This does NOT in any way reflect on the quality or trustworthiness of a website. I am Adwords certified and I use google on some sites and other networks on others.

    Google Adsense: Making money with Google Adsense is very simple. You simply place contextual ads on your websites using the code that your cut and paste from Google Adsense. The cool part about contextual ads is that you do not have to sell anything to get paid you get paid when vistors click on your ads. For example I started a web site on school uniforms which allows users to search for the best deals on school uniforms. Click here to buy books on Google Adsense

      So you were using the link units or search units, I guess? Otherwise it’s normally a bad think to try to make people click your ads by saying: buy here or search here.

    Hi,

    Its an more informative article, truly it very useful for me.

    I am an beginner in the blogging field. Initially i applied for ad-sense, after several reviews they disapproved my application. They have listed a several points needs to make the website improved. And it was said like I can apply again.

    Can you guide like, what Google will look for approving ad-sense? Like Google the above mentioned sites too have these kind of review system and disapproval policies?

    Thanks in advance.

      Hello.
      Did you try checking Google Adsense TOS?
      Which URL are you submitting for your application? You should have at least a few quality posts (5 or more) and not submit your application as soon as you create it.

  54. says

    Unfortunately adsense is still the highest paying.
    I have chitika and the others and barely make a pennuy unless I cloick an ad. adsenmse seemed to psy on ecpm where others don’t. It top bad adsense is so unforgiving,

  55. says

    Hi,

    I also like to work with other adsense programs rather than Google. I am currently working with media.net, and it si very good source to make money from it. Is there anyone who is earning with it..

    I have some query regrading that like getting confusion when it generates too less amount of money for same number of page impressions for 2 days….?

  56. says

    so many people earning from GA and some get banned by GA by using invalid click or by some other mistake. Thanks servando , to share here a Other Alternative for GA.
    I think Info link is best options for GA and its Payout also $50 which is half of GA which I have used.

    • says

      Yeah, even though I guess many people really ask or try invalid clicks and thus they get banned. We will never know for sure.
      Info links is good, but a little bit annoying for the readers sometimes. I prefer chitika.

  57. says

    Thanks for your informative post on alternatives for adsense…I have been having hard time getting approved on adsense. and this is just what I need Right now…Thanks once again for sharing

  58. says

    Once I was a publisher for adbrite and my first checks were from adbrite itself it served as one of the best adsense alternative. i am also using amazon affiliate and info-links I should try the other networks soon.

    Thanks for the information Servando…

  59. says

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful article. Adsense rejected my site recently and this really helped me in looking for an alternative to use on my site.

  60. says

    Having a list of alternatives for Adsense is an add for those finding it hard to earn with the programme . Thanks for a great post but i wouldnt advice alternatives for those already earning enough with adsense.

  61. Jimto says

    Thank you so much for the info. I will try infolinks and actually just registered. Have to wait for two days for my account to be activated based on the email I received. Hope it works well for me. Been applying for ad sense and denied each time, lol. Is it possible to apply on all of the given choices here and apply them on the site if approved? Thanks.

  62. says

    Wow… Nice Post bro. I only Use adsense And Adclickmedia on my blog and they just give me penny. I’ll Try out some of these ones listed here. Thanks

  63. says

    Hello Servando,

    Thanks for this brilliant review. I have to tell you, how helpful your review is as i am getting very low CTR from adsense. Now i can apply one by one the above mentioned by you and will check if they are better alternatives for adsense. As you have mentioned also that we can run most of these services with adsense.

    You Rock :)

  64. Arslan says

    Great post man. I was searching for this as my request was rejected by Google. I don’t know why they did this. I followed their guidelines and all TO’s. I think now i should give alternatives a try. Thanks for sharing.

  65. says

    Hello Servando,

    This is the best review so far regarding adsense alternative that i came across. I was disappointed as Adbrite is longer in the business and i had difficulty deciding which services is better for me. My website generated more than 10,000 impressions per month since 4 months and is running with any ads. Now i had applied for few above mentioned by you. I personally find BSA, test link ads, Chitika and Amazon affiliates good for my site.

    Thanks a lot

    • says

      No problem :)
      Well, if you’re generating at least 10K visitors per month, then you could find a CPM alternative better, instead of CPC.
      Make sure to try them all and make split testing to increase your earnings.

  66. says

    Till now I haven’t found a great site that is as good as google adsense. I tried bidvertiser, infolinks. both’s revenue is too little. My bidvertiser ads get low clicks. because the ads on are not contextual with the keyword search.

  67. says

    Hi Servando,
    Very nice to meet you and it was nice to see your helpful post on BizSugar. I hope you will be returning often and become a regular member of the community. Very cool!

  68. says

    I just published an article on this same subject because I got an email saying that AdBrite will be out of business as of Feb 1. I’ve heard of the others and definitely like the idea that there are other ways to make money as a blogger who’s made Google mad for some reason that they won’t disclose. Awesome and Thanks!

  69. Erik Contreras says

    Mi estimado, te dejo una alternativa más, igual merece la pena estar en tu lista: http://smowtion.com en estos momentos estoy probando sus servicios y hasta ahora es bastante fácil de usar, le faltan algunas opciones pero creo que podría tener buen futuro. A ver que opinas

  70. Erik Contreras says

    Excelente articulo mi estimado Kain, conocía algunos pero el punto del programa de afiliación me pone en otra perspectiva.

    Saludos!

      Hola Erik. Cuanto tiempo! Que bueno que te ha servido. Ese es el principal impulsor de este sitio (marketing afiliado). Como diste con este lugar tan remoto de las computadoras DIY?

        Hola de nuevo mi estimado. Pues es que ahora ando de jefe de sistemas de Newsweek en Español y entre mis actividades esta el desarrollo y como estamos a punto de lanzar el nuevo sitio pues hay que buscar nuevas formas de obtener recursos, y al estar buscando alternativas a Adsense pues me tope con este site y fue un gusto encontrar alguien conocido y que es experto en el tema. Por lo pronto estoy leyendo otros artículos de este site que me han parecido bastante interesantes y sobre todo útiles, por lo que estaré rondando por estos lares bastante seguido. Un gusto y estamos en contacto, cualquier cosa pues creo que si tienes mi msn, en caso contrario pues ando en twitter también @black_kn

      Hello.
      CJ is one of the most affiliate programs/network out there. Most people trying to monetize via affiliate marketing go out and check for products in Commision Junction and Clickbank. Why do you ask?

  71. says

    Great post Servando!

    Personally I’m not much for Google Adsense, but it does perform well in particular niche’s despite that remarketing thing.

    Infolinks is one that I’m liking right now – I did try Chikita a while back on a gaming site that I run and the results were horrible.

    They had almost no inventory of gaming related ads so they just fill in the space with an ad to a dynamically created page on a domain they own that has no content at all. It was grim.

    I guess it goes to show that it largely depends on the niche you operate in as to which solution will be the best.

    • says

      Hello Adam.
      I completely agree with you. It all depends on your niche. Before selecting your niche it’s vital to do a Market Analysis and see what kind of affiliates and ads are available so that you don´t have to quit later and move to another niche.
      Additionally, having 2-3 alternatives for each site is better, not to put all your eggs in one basket.

      By the way, I´ve been following your blog lately, and it´s nice to have you here man. Happy new year!

  72. Rajashri says

    These are some great alternatives, I think affiliate marketing is one of the best alternatives. I hope somebody as big as Adsense comes up later.

  73. says

    Nice post. My favourite is chitika, as they have good earnings to my web traffic.
    However i did try clicksor and it is not that good in terms on earnings.

    Enjoyed reading this :)

  74. says

    Hi Silva,
    Losing Adsense is one of the biggest bad-luck in your whole internet career. But looking from real good alternatives to Google Adsense is another big pain for the web-master to digg a sufficient advertising network for his blog to make it some money.

    Alternatives are good , but at the end of the day no one pays like Google Adsense. And many of these alternatives look pretty spammy when you implement them on your website and you might get many unrelated ads on your website.

    Regards
    Sara Fargoons

    • says

      Hello Sara. thanks for your insights on this matter, but i tend to disagree. Not all of them look spammy, specially if you’re looking forward to affiliate Marketing. As long as you provide good content instead of big landing pages with lots of sales pitches.

  75. ravi says

    Google AdSense is undoubtedly the best advertising network out there which follows a pay-per-click advertising model. When AdSense was launched they were accepting almost all websites that comply with their Program Policies.

  76. best text link ads says

    Hello There! I am really glad that you share this information regarding the best google adsense alternatives. This blog post certainly carry helpful and useful insights to everyone. I’m really looking forward to read more of your articles. Thanks again guys for posting!. Keep on Posting!

  77. yusuf says

    really awesome list bro.I am using cliksor and it’s working better for me but yet i have not tried affiliate marketing.As you are saying so i want to give it a try.
    Please tell me some affiliate programs for my website http://guddoz.com

    • says

      I guess it really narrows down to your niche. Having a quick look to your website, I don’t think I’d be the best person to get recommendations. How’s clicksor been doing for you?

  78. Anthony says

    Thanks for offering some alternatives to adsense, I have just had my adsense account disabled for no obvious reason just as I started to make a profit. Google has also removed my website from their
    pages. People spend hours researching content and writing articles only for google to wipe them of the internet, they think they are bigger than the people yet without people building websites and blogs they have nothing.

  79. says

    Thanks for the post. I always wonder what will be the best alternatives besides GA, there are many options but most of them are scams. But you have light up my way by giving these 10 great lists. But i need to work on my traffic first, because at the end its all depends on the visits. Pardon me for being Newbie. Please share another great post for me to learn.

    • says

      From all the ones I put, none of them are scams, so don’t worry. They’re high quality services. Make sure to subscribe to my list so you can receive all of the updates :) Thank you.

  80. John Geroutis says

    More and more people gets banned by Google and thus, many of us are looking for an alternative. Thanks for the suggestions, they were really useful! I think I will go with a mix of chitika and affiliate marketing!

  81. says

    Google Adsense is a joke! My two information sites combined was having nearly 50k hits a month, I had a nice income from adsense and then one day out of the blue, after 2 years they just said my site was not good enough!!! WTF is this a joke! I wrote to google explaning are they having a laugh? with a reply saying it was all about my content!!! LOL.. I look around on the web today and see so many micky mouse websites with NO PAGE RANK, NO STYLE, NO CONTENT, NO TRAFFIC and they run adsense!!

    Serious Guys.. Leave adsense alone.. Go for the smaller companies, these people may not have the same functions as adsense, but at least their safe..

    I make tidy income from #6 and I am going to stick with them!!

    • says

      Hello Lee,
      I’ve seen very mixed comments about Adsense. For some people is great, for others is not.
      My recommendation: always try to multiply your income streams. You never know when is one shutting down. Better be prepared.
      Somehow, it seems that once Google shuts you down at adsense, there’s no way to come back, something that is very difficult to understand.

  82. says

    Great post!

    I’m mostly involved with #2 and #6…
    I was about to sign up for Google Adsense until they started
    disabling webmaster accounts. I decided to wait until things cool off
    to see what all the fuss was about. I may still sign up in the future though.

    Thanks for the info!

    • says

      Thank you. Most of us, bloggers, try to create different income streams, so that we not only rely on Google. It’s good to know you have already achieved number 2. Let me know if you go to Adsense later and how it does for you.

    • says

      I’m with you. Besides Chitika, most of them are different categories, but the reason to write this article was to find other alternatives (not limited to PPC). When you’re building your business online, you want to make sure you try everything and keep the best for you and your audience.

      • says

        I have tried companies like Adsense and Adbrite and they did not do nearly as good as Altitude Digital Partners. The CPM rate that Altitude Digital pays is a lot higher then the alternatives and there is an actual person you can talk to. Check them out at altitudedigitalpartners.com
