Best Alternatives For Google Adsense

If you’re looking for the best alternatives to Google Adsense, then i must say you’re in the right place and the right time.

Many new bloggers still find it hard to apply for the Google adsense program and even those that apply still get rejected due to some or many reasons. We all want to get paid for the hard work we put into our blog, right? Like my friend would always say; money is the best motivation of every blogger 🙂

Google Adsense Alternatives

Today, I am bringing some good news to you guys. If you have been trying to get your adsense approved and still getting rejected, do read this post and learn from it: Google Adsense Won’t Approve Your Blog? Try This Steps!

If you are tired of using Google adsense or Google have suspended your account or you’d like to mix your adsense with other ad network to increase your blog revenue, then knowing these 5 best Google Adsense alternatives might just be a good read for you.

5 Best Google Adsense Alternatives

I have used all the advertising platforms I am about to mention here today and I must say that they are doing well as an alternate to Google adsense. So without wasting much of our time, here are my 5 Best Google Adsense Alternative you’ll love :).

Infolinks:

Ok, I put infolinks as my number one because they are the most awesome ad network compared to the rest (my opinion) and a better fit for Google Adsense alternatives.

Must Read: How I Reduced My Bounce Rate From 70% to 1.26% Within 4Days

Why I said they are awesome? Because their advert rate (both CPC and Impression) for publishers are higher. Even higher than Google Adsense, their customer care is live and very much active (they always reply to their mails), they pay in time and they also pay through payoneer master card (if you want).

Now tell me how fun can the infolinks network get? But as they say, every good thing must have a bitter side.

The one bitter side I have noticed about them is, it slows down your blog performance. Aside that little pinch, they are awesome. I am currently using them on this blog along with Google adsense :).

Media.net:

From the stables of yahoo, media net has become my second favorite because they are as strict as Google Adsense. They don’t allow just any blogs to participate except you get your traffic from the North America.

Believe you me – I applied for about a dozen times before I was finally accepted to their program.

Why I liked them; they pay high, their customer care is partially active (compared to Google’s :)) and they make payout through paypal.

If most of your traffic is coming from America, then media net is definitely for you.

Clicksor:

This is one great advertising company which I feel you’re also going to love. It works exactly like infolinks (intext ad) and does even more when it come to ad sizes and display.

They do pay in time and their CPC is also high. They can work alongside adsense but I wouldn’t recommend you to use the same ads (clicksor + adsense) on your blog or your blog will be darn slow or might even look kinda spammy (my own suggestion).

Chitika:

When I started blogging newly, I was temporarily suspended from using the Google Adsense program due to some issues. I then switch to Chitika pending till I am released by Adsense. But the more I used chitika, the more I fell in love with them 🙂

What do I like about them? The way they display their ads is totally different from the rest advertising company out there. Their ads are so tempting that your visitors will have no choice but to click it.

But one thing I do not like is the low CPC they offer. Aside that, nothing bad about them and I am using them on my other site :).

Addynamo:

Most of you might not have heard about addynamo before but for those who do, you’ll know that they are doing quite well.

But the truth is I tried them once for like a month but I removed them because my earning was quite low and wasn’t what I’d expect.

Some bloggers do use them and still smile to the bank. So you can use it and see how it goes for you :).

Let’s talk:

Looks like i have said so much about so much one the best Google Adsense Alternatives. Now it’s time to pass the keyboard

  1. Hi Babanature,

    Wonderful alternatives indeed 🙂

    I know how tough it becomes sometimes, especially for new bloggers when their adsense accounts aren’t accepted, while a few others whose accounts get suspended mid-way too. I was lucky there though because mine was accepted pretty soon when I started blogging. I hadn’t thought of all these alternatives, though learnt about them with time, and tried them all. But nothing works as well as Google Adsense, nor does it pay as much I think.

    I hadn’t heard of Addynamo and Clicksor, so would check them out, while I too applied for Media.net but only once, and when rejected, left it. Might try it out again. Infolinks are great but beside the slowing of the blog, I noticed they didn’t pay as well, so I removed them long back.

    Thanks for sharing these alternatives with us. Have a nice week 🙂

    • Hello Harleena,
      Yea, for those who applied for Adsense earlier did get almost instant approval. But now it is very hard to get approval from adsense. So for those who find it hard to get adsense approval, i compiled this brilliant list so it can help them get their feet up again :)…

      Right now, i am not using clicksor or addynamo because they don’t offer me as the rest does…

      Thanks for your kind thoughts my friend. I will sure have a great week and hope you do too…

  2. Hello Babanature,

    Today I seen first time blogger who recommend Addynamo ad network, it’s quite good because I am using it. Really Very Good Alternative for Google Adsense.

    Media.net approval is quite difficult but if you are driving US and UK traffic then it’s quite good than other.

    Earlier I am using clicksor, but it’s not good because many time ads from coming with full of page and no content will be displayed and only ads ads.

    Reply
    • Hello Nikhil,
      I added Addynamo because many new bloggers do use them now a days :).

      Sometime clicksor can indeed mess up a site but if you can set your add accurately, you won’t have such problems.

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a brilliant week…

  3. Nice list bro. I don’t think addynamo is qualified to make this list. Anyway, i use adsense on my blog and infolinks + chitika on my forum but i’m currently planning on selling ad space on my blog and forum too.

    • Hello Inyavic,
      Addynamo has never worked for me as well but it doesn’t mean people are not benefiting from them :).
      Selling ad space is indeed a nice move to take. I do wish you good luck on that…

  4. Babanature, you are right we all want something for our efforts. These are great alternatives.

    It is good to have a back up. I tried media net one time.

    Now I can see why I have not heard from them, they are picky.

    Thanks Bro.

    • Hello Michael,
      Indeed media net is indeed picky and if you’re not patient, you might never get approved with them :).

  5. Ad dynamo and media net are new to me. I think infolinks is the best one in term of revenue if we build the correct niche we may have huge monthly earning from this platform.

    Thanks for this post my friend

    • Hello Okto,
      Addynamo and media net are the new ad network on the blog.

  6. I have tried infolinks and addynamo before and with my experience, infolinks is still better although I can’t compare with Google Adsense now coz my blog has not been approved by Google.

    Reply
    • Hello Olumide,
      Infolinks is based on keywords and traffic. If your blog is a rich keyword blog and your traffic is high enough, your earnings is going to be super. though, none can beat the Google adsense but they are good as an alternate 🙂

  7. Hii Babanature,

    All alternatives of adsense are good

    i m using infolinks for my blogger, i used chitika but i didn’t find it well as infolinks.

    i think media.net and infolinks are better altenative of adsense.

    Reply
    • The reason you have not earned from them is because, you do not have traffic coming to your blog, your keywords in your post is not encouraging, your impression is not enough.
      Infolinks pay with the above criteria. so try to build them today and earn higher

      Reply
  8. Disagree with you when you review Clicksor, I read a lot of reviews and this company pay very low, you said high, I don’t know what high means for you buddy but a lot of people complain about this aspect. They pay low!

    And the second review I disagree, the one for Chitika, this company pay even lower, are so many reviews about them, I read forums reviews where people can share their experience and not some blogger reviews because it could be a paid review and for sure they said a bunch of stuff about them which are not true. This one pay low, you can’t love it at all!

    I do agree with you regarding Infolinks, great network, I already have an account approved for my new project, will see and share with you how is performing on webmaster related topics pretty soon.

    The other ones I heard about them but I don’t know so much and I can’t comment about them.

    I must agree, these are short reviews but you said they pay high, no they don’t, they pay low, very low. And when you have a project (blog, forum, wiki sites etc…) never use alternatives and always work to get back with the No.1 advertising network, which is Adsense, the other days I contact them regarding a strange behaviour on my site with ads, by mistake I put 5 AFC (Adsense For Content) and they all running okay, when it should not, and should be 3 AFC and 2 blank spots, however I removed the extra ads because I was afraid not to get suspended, I’ve got reply after 48 hours from Adsense saying ads look good on my site and to continue with them, they also said “thanks for pointing this, I’ll inform techincal team, might be system problem”. And they also said 3 AFC is allowed, but I already knew that.

    WTF!!! This comment is not my type, I hate long comments :))

    Kind regards, I. C. Daniel

    • The first time i applied for clicksor, i got 5 dollar that day the next day i got 15 dollar and so on… to a newly blog with a high traffic, that’s got to be something, right? But after 3weeks i removed clicksor from my blog because my blog started looking like a spam blog.

      There are some people who uses Google adsense for like a year plus and still haven’t reached their payment threshold.

      Everybody needs to follow what works for them, right? The forum you saw those discussions, they are only giving their own opinion and experiences. Here i dropped mine :).

      I am currently using Google adsense, infolinks and chitika on all my blogs and i must say they are all paying me well :).

      Wow Daniel… i truly love your comment today, You did say a lot which i truly love.

      P.S: I am classifying the comment as your best ever 🙂

      Thanks for the awesome comment buddy, do have a wonderful week ahead….

      Reply
      • You right, experience is different from a person to another and people do stick with what they found performing well on their site(s).

        I avoid long comments because they are time consuming to the blog owner, not to me, to owner, that’s you :D, owner is going to take the time to read it first and reply to my comment and all other comments, I often point out in my comment just certain things to keep it short as can be.

        Thanks buddy, you too have an awesome weekend, I don’t know you but mine is going to be for sure, tomorrow Adsense send money I earned last month (only 199.81 Euros), it’s party time 😛

  9. Hi Babanature,

    I don’t run any ads on my blog at the moment, but thanks very much for letting us know about these alternatives, which may be useful for future reference. Having read Harleena’s comment, I’d probably be inclined to try Adsense for a start.

    Cheers – an interesting share 🙂

    • Hello Susan,
      It is nice not adding does javascript code to your blog, because it does slow down sites a little :).
      To tell you the fact, i am also thinking of removing the ad networks on my blog – but after i’ve truly mastered my affiliate marketing…

      Thanks for dropping your wonderful comment Sue. Do have yourself a wonderful weekend

  10. There is one thing about CPC ads, it depends and varies across the board.

    I have had experience with Adsense but Media.net has really come in very handy and worth every hype.

    Reply
  11. Hi Babanature, Wow, I learned a lot about the different advertising choices for bloggers. I had no idea there were so many options. Like Sue, i don’t have advertising at The Wonder of Tech (for now), so I have a lot to learn.

    So can you have more than one service putting ads on your blog? I saw one ad, I thought, on your blog, it really isn’t obtrusive.

    I wouldn’t have known what to consider when choosing these services but you make a lot of excellent points. Customer service, pay rate, speed of pay and load on the blog would all make a big difference.

    Thanks so much for this great review, Babanature!

    Reply
    • Hello Carolyn,
      Glad you like the post…
      Yeah, you can add more than one ad network to your blog. But the more the javascript code the more weight you’ll put on your blog. So my recommendation is; use only two ad network on your blog…

      To tell you the truth, pretty soon i will stop using ad networks and start selling direct ads and focusing more on affiliate as well 🙂

      Thanks for the lovely comment and do have a wonderful weekend…

      Reply
  12. Babanature, i would say you have compiled a great and wonderful adsense alternative. Honestly the fact still remain that the more traffic you generate, the more you enjoy these ads. I ‘m using infolinks, though i just integrated it 3 days ago and it hasn’t been encouraging anyway, but i’ll still hold on.
    Even if you have adsense ads on your blog and you traffic is speaking of 500 daily page view, i believe you should be expecting magic. Monetization with ads is impressive when you have an impressive traffic flowing on in your blog.

  13. Hi Babanature,

    Great info.! I didn’t know about any of these sites, but, I’m going to check out infolinks. I don’t have an adsense account, so, I’m going to go and check that out, too.
    Don’t know why, but, I kept getting distracted about putting adsense on my site.
    Thanks for sharing such great info.

    • Hello Geri,
      Some top bloggers do use the infolinks networks so i am sure they will be good for your blog as well :).

      Maybe you have other means of making money through your blog beside using adsense, right? but you can give adsense or any of its alternate a short and see how it plays out.

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your awesome comment. Do have yourself a lovely Sunday 🙂

  14. Hello Babanature,

    I’ve tried Infolinks and I can authoritatively tell you its quite good! In the long run though, nothing beats selling direct adspace on your blog though.

    Thanks for sharing…do have a great day!

    • Hello Akaahan,
      Indeed direct ad is the best because you don’t need any monthly impressions before you can get paid 🙂

  16. Hello,

    Great alternatives mate, I’ve tried all of them but the truth is they CPC is not good as adsense. However i like chitika as it will also pay for impressions. Infolinks is also great and i think I’ve earned great money from it.

  23. Adsense is definitely the best but recently we’ve been having great success with sponsored content platforms such as content.ad. If the ad placement is right, it can make a big difference to CPM’s. Also, AddPlay.com is working really well for us and has opened up video ad inventory for our site.

    Reply
  24. Google Adsense is the best revenue advertising program but I really don’t agree that it’s the best of all. Adsense has VERY strictly rules and may ban you even if you didn’t do anything to get that ban and the worst thing is, you cannot appeal (you can but you won’t get your account back).

    Infolinks- this is probably the worst advertising media, it has ONLY facebook ads and they are really untargeted that’s why I really don’t recommend this media, really bad.
    Adsense wins if you can have your account.

  25. Hi Babanature,

    Best Google Adsense Alternatives helps to keep earning money using our own website when Adsense bans to our accounts. There can be situation when we look back to the best google adsense alternatives .

    You are right, we all want to get paid the investment in our website and it can be obtained by making money from google adsense or it’s alternatives. So nice to hear about the infolinks, medianet, clicksor, chitika and addynamo. I had never heard of it before. Thanks for highlighting this topic to make money online easily.

    Great list. AdSense is not the single ad network for the bloggers to make money. They can make use of these awesome tools If Google rejected or banned their account. But you missed Adversal from the list which is a reliable service with minimum threshold limit.

  29. Great Content i did really appreciate your help with two quick questions:

    1. Which Adsense alternative would you recommend for a site that gets the vast majority of its traffic from social media platforms? The site is largely info based rather than product based.

    2. I have a few newer sites which get less traffic, (but what they do get also comes mostly from social media). Are there any good ad platforms without a minimum traffic requirement, that are also friendly towards social traffic.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

    Reply
  30. Actually, I have tried all of them as Google Alternatives. But The truth is that no one competes with Adsense at all. For smaller blogs I would like to share my own experience about:

    1. Amazon Display ads: one of LOW CPM ad network.
    2. Bidvertisor and Clicksor: serve low-quality ads, so your site may be flagged as malicious.
    3. Viglink, Skimlinks, Infolinks, Chitika: Low rates. Infolinks makes blogs look too busy when they use the iframe and infold ads.
    4. RevenueHits is a SPAM ad networks. You can check it’s reputation on the internet.
    5. Adversal, Adsoptimal, Media[.]net are still BEST high paying Google Adsense alternatives for our blog. They have better designs, which provides better result next to AdSense.

    From my own blog monetizing experience, I would like to say, don’t limit yourself to any one AD NETWORK. Try other ad networks and see which one work the best with your micro-niche blog. Since you are trying the micro-niche blog, try monetizing with affiliate products. I would recommend to you & for others to try more network, and figure out which one is working best for their blog type.

  36. I am a first time visitor to your blog, but I am enjoying reading some of the articles.
    This is another brilliant one!You have rightly pointed out about the need to keep CPC, CTR and CPM in mind before choosing the monetisation method for a blog. Depending only upon adsense is stupidity.

  37. According to the list and my knowledge media.net is not a good option in India as they are not providing a good return while chitika is better than media.net ya infolinks are good but Adsense is far away from these. If you have decent traffic than you can move to tribal fusion which is also a excellent option.

  41. you are right after several time of adsense application rejection many people think that “Ohhh, now i can’t be able to do this” and many of them give up from blogging but it shouldn’t be. Google checks the passion and consistency of Bloggers so, we no need to worry about my adsense application is not being accepted. I think 3 or 4 time rejection is normal thing in these days. Thanks Bro for sharing your experience with us. Newbies will learn lot’s of things from here.

  42. First off, I hate adsense. I know, I’m weird… From your list I’ve only heard of Chitika and Infolinks. I’ve never used either and I really hate visiting those blogs where the links are hyperlinked and I barely move over them and I’m being taken to some advertisement. I seriously find it very hard to believe that people really make any decent money through these services. I appreciate you giving us your honest opinion though on these so thank you for that. I enjoy reading posts like this where you’ve given services a real go and sharing your results with us. That I appreciate so much.

  43. I had Ad Sense for 5 days when I started my first blog. One of my relatives that will remain nameless, started clicking on the ads and they banned me after the 5 days. I have tried and tried to plead my case, but can get nowhere. The only salvation I have is I have heard from other bloggers in the trade that it really does not provide any income to speak of.

    Reply
  44. I just want to give my opinion, the list that you write above, I think its not good alternative if you are not give payment proof. We are know that are so many network ads that can we use, but some have a little conversion and some have bigger conversion, you can say it amazing if they paid you with bigger amount than others. You only give your opinion but not fact. some readers can be make mistake if they using it but not giving them good amount. I mean amount in cpc or eCpm etc. I think you can write it better. Thanks. I’m blogger from Indonesia, nice to read your blog.
