If you are a regular reader of Technology Hint, then you have noticed that I've used many ad networks on this blog.
Among all of them, Adsense is the best.
But, if you don't have the Adsense approval yet or your Adsense account got disabled, then you need to use the Google Adsense alternatives.
Best 3 Google Adsense Alternatives
In this post, we will see 3 alternatives to Adsense which I've tried in the past. Let's get started.
Infolinks is a popular in-text advertising network (CPM and CPC based).
You can get the approval easily. Visit infolinks.com and sign up for the publisher account. You'll receive the approval within 1-3 days.
Here are the Infolinks ad formats:
Minimum payout: $50 (NET45)
- Bank Wire
- Western Union
- If you use the in-text ad format, then it will not occupy any ad space on your blog.
- Easy approval and integration.
- You may see the same ads a lot.
This ad network is currently in issue and the current state of this ad network is unknown. So, I suggest you to not try this. You can try the remaining two ad networks.
AdsOptimal was established in October 2012 and it is located in San Francisco.
AdsOptimal ads are CPM, CPC and conversion based ads and they have partnered with the Adsense and DFP (to name a few).
It is a perfect ad network for low traffic blogs. Go to adsoptimal.com and sign up for the publisher account. The review takes 1-5 days.
Once they approved, you’ll get the $10 or $5 from the AdsOptimal. $10 for high quality sites and $5 for other sites. Once you start using their ads on your blog, you’ll receive an extra $5 from AdsOptimal.
Minimum payout: $50
Payment methods: PayPal or check
- Easy integration.
- You may see the same ads a lot.
Media.Net is a contextual ad network which is powered by Yahoo! Bing network.
They are offering display ads and text ads. Getting the approval for Media.Net is a difficult one when comparing with the other 2 advertising networks listed in this post.
You need to have a quality blog to get approval from Media.Net. Go to Media.Net and sign up for an account.
Minimum payout: $100
Payment method: PayPal or wire transfer
- Quality of the ads are high.
- Multiple ad unit sizes.
- They don't have plugin like other ad networks do.
I want to share some things with you before you are get started with these advertising networks.
1. Look at these two scenarios:
- You'll earn nothing
- You'll earn decent amount of money
These are two sides of the coin (ad networks). I've not earned anything from these ad networks. But at the same time, many bloggers are earning handful of money out of it.
It depends on a lot of things such as niche, traffic and so on. It varies for each blog and so the income is.
So don't go with the intention that it will bring you the handful of money. Because, you may end up making nothing or $0.02/day (something like that). So, my suggestion for you is try out an ad network for 15-30 days. If it is working for you, continue it. Otherwise, get rid of it and try another alternative.
2. Don't expect the Adsense revenue (CPC and RPM) from these ad networks. Exceptionally, you may receive more money than adsense. But, it is rare.
3. You have to receive US, UK and Canada traffic to earn more money from these advertising networks.
You know your blog and your readers more than anyone else. So, choose an ad network which is suitable for your blog and readers.
I hope these good Adsense alternatives will be useful for you to monetize your blog.
