Best Google Adsense Alternatives

Google Adsense is the word we hear from every blogger and it is also the great dream of an every blogger to earn money online via Google Adsense. Coming to Google Adsense network, It is an Pay Per Click advertising program with high paying network. Google Adsense allows its users to monetize their blog/website with most desirable ads.

But now a day’s Google is not allowing small publishers to apply for new Adsense account due to the increase in rules and regulations. That is why it’s very difficult to get Approved Adsense account. If any how we get approved Adsense account we can’t say and guarantee that our account will remain active.

Google may any time ban your account without any notice and we feel that is the end. So it is better to stay away from Adsense until you establish a huge blog or website. You must not be disappointed as Adsense is not the end. There are lots of Google Adsense alternatives which you can try.

Google Adsense Alternatives

Here we have Listed Top 6 Google Adsense Alternatives :

1. Infolinks :

Infolinks is the best and the top most In-Text Advertisement Advertising program. It provides In-Text Advertisement for all text based blogs and websites. The big advantage is Infolinks approve each and every blog or a website. And it is also the second best option of Google Adsense.

But here the main drawback is low click rate. You can withdraw your money from PayPal, Bank Wire Transfer and by using Infolinks debit cards. Here the Minimum payment is 50$ for PayPal and debit cards, 300$ for Bank Wire Transfer.

2. BuySellAds :

Here in the name itself BuySellAds where you can buy ads (Publisher) and sell ads (Advertiser). It is a Direct Advertising Ad Network. This website acts as a middle person for both Advertiser and Publisher to meet together. Here the complete process is done by BuySellAds and they Keep the Money till the Deal time is completed. They charges 25 percentage of transaction amount for providing the service.

We ca say that it is also one of the best Google Adsense Alternatives Advertising Network. Here getting approved BuySellAds account is not so easy like other ad networks. We need to have a good quality website with a neat design with huge traffic. You can withdraw your money from PayPal, Cheque, Bank Wire Transfer and the Minimum Payout is 50$.

3. Chitika :

Chitika is a Cost Per Click ad network which was founded in 2003 and it is a search targeted advertising network. Chitika also approve almost all well established blogs. Chitika places the ads according to the content and pays a high click rate mostly for the US and UK traffic. We can also consider this as another best Google Adsense Alternatives Advertising program.

We can customize the ads, i.e. we can edit text color, URL color and border color of the ad according to our blog design. Here the ads are customized into three types. 1. Search Targeted ads 2. Mobile Ads and 3. Local Ads. You can also earn some extra income from their referral program. You can withdraw your money from PayPal, Cheque and the Minimum Payout for PayPal is 10$ and 50$ is for Cheque.

4. Adbrite :

Adbrite is very similar to BuySellAds. Here when you join this ad network you will not get ads instantly unless and until someone buy ad place on your blog and you can also setup your ad space price on weekly basis, monthly basis etc.

You have a complete authority to accept or reject the advertisement. So that you can choose the ads related to your blog or website. The main thing is that they approve each and every blog or a website. You can withdraw your money from PayPal, Cheque and the Minimum Payout is 100$.

5. Kontera :

Kontera is also an In-text Advertising network. It is similar to Infolinks. They scan our websites and find the keywords which match their keywords in the Database and show Ads Accordingly. To get approved in Kontera our blog needs good and huge page impressions.

Kontera Payouts are really good with high CTR. The main drawback is Kontera ads might slow down loading time of your blog. Here you can withdraw your money from PayPal, Cheque, EFT and the Minimum Payout is 50$.

6. Bidvertiser :

Bidvertiser is an ad network that offers the ability to the website owners to sell their ad space automatically to the highest bidding advertiser. Here publishers are totally dependent on direct bids from advertisers for most of their income. Bidvertiser now pays extra revenue for conversions.

We have to provide some keywords and category of our website to get the ads displayed, otherwise they don’t have the ability to display ads related to the context of our webpage. But in the other advertising networks like Google Adsense and Chitika, they get the keywords of your website themselves automatically. You can withdraw your money from PayPal, Cheque, Bank Wire Transfer and the Minimum Payout is 10$.

  1. weldone bro. I totally agree with you that you have to establish a huge blog or website before you apply for any adsense account.

  2. Thanks for the list. I guess bidvertiser is the best after Google Adsense. Will try my luck. BTW What’s the requirement for getting Adsense? How much pageviews a day is needed?

    • Traffic and pageviews isn’t a factor in terms of applying for Adsense. To get approved by Google Adsense you need to post Original content and your blog must be of six months old.

      • 6 months factor! I disagree because I had done some guest posting in one of my friend’s blog which got approval in 2 months and some 20 days. However later on due to copyright violation(his other authors were posting some junk like movie trailers and posters) it got disabled.

        Google has nowhere mentioned that your blog should be atleast 6 months old. But you should have a better reputation in blogosphere

  3. Hi Sai,

    This is Jonathan from Kontera. Thanks for including us in your round up of top AdSense alternatives – Kontera is extremely effective either apart or along side AdSense :)

    Regarding load time, Kontera will not actually effect this as by default we’re the last element on a page to load.

  4. As I visitor from Brazil, I would love to see those alternatives here, yet if they exist, they have so few clients that it is not worthy to be a partner. Just for portuguese speakers, here we have, besides adsense, Hotwords, Uol related and and many shopping affiliated, such as Submarino, Buscape and many others.

  5. This are a good list for adsense alternative. I agree that adsense is being strict for small publisher and most of them adsense keep banning some publisher. I have an account in adsense that is about $500 but just banned without no reason. This is what I hate about adsense.

  6. nice sharing, i just register bidvertiser and seem, its ads normal..

    • Hi Anju, Adsense Alternatives don’t give good revenue as you said but now a days many accounts are getting disapproved. So with this alternatives we can atleast something but not much as Google Adsense.

  8. The worst thing about Adsense alternatives are that they never work for small publishers due to their high minimum threshold.

  10. Hi Sai…
    Nice tips bro…
    I personally believe that ‘BuySellAds’ have great potential if you have quality readership and 50K+ pageviews per month.

    It can give you much more than Google AdSense and when i’ll monetize my blog it will be in top of my list.

  19. Infolinks could be the best alternative for the adsense although i also like adbrite,
    ashish Kumar recently posted..London Olympics 2012 Are Officially OverMy Profile

  20. This is true. There are many other options with much more flexible conditions. I myself started working with the team at AdsGadget and it is really an amazing option for small publishers who often get left behind because they don’t meet minimum standards of payment or page visitors. AdsGadget was based on this idea, to give a professional solution to long-tail publishers.

  21. For few reasons I think Google is still the best

  22. Great list…
    Rehmat recently posted..HTML5 and CSS3. Free eBook DownloadMy Profile

  23. These ad networks are great but I don’t think that all these comparable to Adsense. Google Adsense is different than others.

    • In what sense? I really think that there are some good alternatives out there. Plus, some of these are much more flexible when it comes to payment terms and traffic volume. AdSense is not always good for small publishers.

  24. All of these articles about alternatives just begs the question, “Why are there not serious capitalists out there to take advantage of the existence of so many blog and small-website owners out there who need to make a decent amount from advertizing?” This situation is a giant opportunity for serious capitalists. Google will allow ads on virtually empty pages of junk (based entirely on the matter of site-visitor numbers), yet often denies opportunity for publishers of quality content.
    Most of the alternatives base the nature of their ads on what people who visit have been searching in browser searches, as though everyone doing web browser searches are looking for products, instead of information or ideas; thus, the writer of concepts stands virtually no chance of getting good ads for his or her content.

  25. I tried them on my blog, but they pay very very less as compare to Google adsense.

  28. As i was finding he best adsense alternative, this post is very helpful to find the right place. Can anyone tell me that how to best optimize my site for getting more payment from advertising programs ?

    • Hey M. Usman,

      I visited your website and I liked the design, the articles are light and fun to read. In terms of optimizing it for ad programs, the only thing I would change would be the page menu. Make it a bit shorter so you have more space to place banner ads without making the site look crowded.
      Also, I saw you were using Infolinks, how is that working out for you?

  29. Fred Sheller

    Hello there, thank you for this article. I’ve been researching quite a lot on the subject of ad networks and alternatives to Adsense in particular. It’s a real jungle out there and as an owner of a small website there are plenty of things that can go wrong, plenty of ad network alternatives that are less useful or profitable. Thanks for bringing some light on the subject. I would like to mention the ad network I decided to go with in the end – Komoona ( So far things are looking pretty good, being rejected by Adsense doesn’t seem as such a disaster any longer! 😉

  30. It’s correct that now Google doesn’t giving adsense for many bloggers.
    They also rejecting some good sites also.
    Having a adsense alternative is a good think for every blogger who is disapproved for adsense.
    But, I found a mistake in the adcodes of Adbrite & Bidvertiser. They surely give you adcode but when we paste this adcode on the Blog’s HTML They shows an error.
    Then, How can we earn money from this?
    Can anyone help me?
    Please reply to me :

  31. nice post ,but i am using clicksor.

  36. Well for adsense alternatives , i want to say that its better to opt for selling direct adspots on your blog if you really want to earn . Lower traffic blogs will not earn a single penny with theses adverts.

  41. Currently using Adsense, but have tried Bidvertiser & Adbrite too. Their ads are mostly irrelevant to the content.
    I have a query, Does BuySellAds require about 25000 pageviews per month?

  49. Thanks for this great and informative article, this will helps to blogger for making money from their blog.

  50. I do not think that there is an alternative with Google Adsense But there are companies compete

  51. We tried out Bidvertiser, but found it horrible. The pop up and sliding ads were terribly intrusive and spammy. What’s more, they kept popping up additional windows. We turned all of them off under “Preferences,” but then found that the ads no longer worked. Sometimes half the ad would load, sometimes not at all.

    And Adbrite went bankrupt unfortunately. It’s looking more and more like Google owns everything, and the ability for bloggers to make money is going away in a fair and competitive marketplace is almost done. We’ll need to market our own material, ebooks, etc.

    • Thank you so much for including Chitika in this post! My name is Amanda and I am the new Publisher Acquisition Manager here at Chitika. Not only can you earn $$$ by becoming a publisher, but you can earn 10% for 10 months for new publishers you send to Chitika.
      Happy earning!

  52. Hi
    Unfortunately we would all like to rely on Adsense but we all need alternatives just in case things don’t work with Adsense. Will take a look at these and see which I think is worth a go.

    So thanks lee
