How many times did you apply for Adsense account and got rejected?
It could be several times or more. Maybe, you are still struggling to get approved by Adsense.
Most of the new bloggers apply for Adsense many times and become disappointed after getting rejected by Adsense. But Adsense is not the only advertising network for publishers. There are a lot of ad networks that share decent amount of revenue to their publisher.
To be frank, though there are a lot of ad networks but there is no real alternative of Adsense. Adsense is still the best Advertising Network. I believe ‘Something is better than noting’. That’s why I am going to share some Adsense alternatives.
If you are one of the them who didn’t get approved by Adsense or got banned by Adsense, then you can try the following networks. You can also use these networks along with Adsense to increase your revenue.
My advice is not to try the networks at a time. You can do A/B testing to check which one works better for you.
Google Adsense Alternative
Media.net is probably the number one alternative for Adsense. It is a contextual ad network, powered by Yahoo and Bing. It enables publisher to earn money from advertising revenue.
It offers customized ad units that fit with your site look. It also shows ad to the mobile phone and tablet users.
Currently this network is not opened for public sign up. But you can request for invitation.
Next Google Adsense alternative is Chitika. If you are tired of not getting Adsense approval, then sign up for Chitika. You need not to get approval for using chitika ads on your site. Just create an account and put ads on your site.
It offers 3 types of ads – Search Targeted Ads, Local Ads and Mobile Ads. It’s PPC rates aren’t as good as Adsense.
Infolinks is a bit different from above two. It doesn’t take too many spaces of your site to show ads. It shows in text or pop up ads.
Infolinks offer 4 types of ads – in search, in text, in frame and in tag.
Bidvertiser is another pay per click advertising site that could be a great option if you didn’t get Adsense approval or got banned.
It offers Text ads, Banner ads, Mobile Ads, Slider ads etc. You can also make money by promoting your customized toolbar.
Kontera is similar to infolinks. Kontera Ads appear on hyper linked text when you hover the mouse on the linked text. It also offers image and video ads. All ads are based on pay per click payment.
Whenever you add in text ads on your site, make sure that you are not annoying your readers with too much ads.
Cicksor is a contextual ad network that offers different types of ad format to their publishers. It offers 85% of the ad income.
Clicksor offers five different ad types - Inline text links, Text Banners, Graphical banner, Pop-Unders, Interstitial Ads.
Qadabra is a self-serve ad platform that offers performance based advertising. It was formerly known as AdsGadget. It requires only 15 second to start showing ads on your site with Qadabra.
It offers banner ads including slider ads. You need not have much content to get approved by Qadabra.
