I`m experimenting on how you (readers) will act when I don`t start with boring introduction. So, for this post also am not going to write the very old thing on how and why to make money then come to Google adsense alternatives, instead I will start directly.
Reason for looking Google adsense alternative can be many, like may you your adsense account got banned, or you`re getting very less CPC value from Google adsense. What ever the reason here are top 10 adsense alternatives waiting for you.
Here Comes Google Adsense Alternatives
Let me start with easiest one from all.
To overcome the banner blindness, Infolinks started in-text ads. When you hover your mouse on your keyword phrase it turns out with ads. Not just in-text ads, but Infolinks provide variety of ad formats. Like
- In Text ads
- In Tag ads
- In Search Ads
- In Frame
You can try all these ad forms on Infolinks demo page
Payment Threshold = 50$ (for paypal, echeck, ACH and Payoneer) and 100$ (for Bank wire transfer option and western union)
To be honest I personally never tried this, but my fellow bloggers had very good experience with them. Like Infolinks Clicksor has different Ad formats.
- Inline Text Links
- Text Banners
- Graphical banner
- Interstitial Ads
If you want to see a demo of these Ad formats click here.
Payment Threshold = 50$ (Paypal) and 100$ (Bank wire transfer)
This is much like Google Adsense only thing differs is ads are driven from the search terms and not on content on the blog. They don`t offer too much ad variety but has standard ad unit.
Though many have complained about low earning per click, you can try Chitika for it`s low payment threshold.
Payment Threshold = 10$
In case if you have damn low traffic then look for some other Ad network.
Well this can`t be complete alternative to any Ad network, but you can make some decent money with them. Text-link-ads charge 50% for getting a link sale successfully.
Payment is quick when compared to other ad networks.
Payment Threshold = 25$ (via check) no minimum for paypal.
Getting Tirbal fusion account itself is main task. Your blog need to have minimum of 500,000 unique visitors per month.
Simple you need to have well established blog. I know it`s tough but when you have then go for it.
Tribal Fusion pays 55% of all revenues.
Payment Threshold = 50% (through check)
Knotera ad network provides both in-text and in-image ads. Knotera started before Infolinks.
On May 2011, they started new technology by which publisher can earn more and advertiser can concentrate more, this re marketing technology has really brought much change.
Payment Threshold = 50% (through check)
If you`re in blogging then you might have seen, heard or knew about this site. Needless to say, they are best among Google adsense alternatives.
Before deciding take some time and read review on buysellads.com by Hesham Zebida (famousbloggers.net)
Revenue 75% for publisher and 25% for Buysellads.com
Payment threshold = $20 (for paypal), $50 (Bank Check) and $500 (Wire Transfer)
Relying on 1 income source is not recommended, so it`s better you try writing reviews to products or sites in your niche.
There are 2 options to do it, 1 join review network sites like Reviewme.com, Sponsoredreviews.com. 2nd option is add page displaying that you offer review service (writing reviews)
I recommend to try both methods.
#9 Direct Advertising
