Top 10 High Paying Google Adsense Alternatives for Bloggers

Adsense Alternatives

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 honest, though there are a lot of ad networks but there is no real alternative of Adsense. Adsense is still the best Advertising Network. But 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. Here is the list of Adsense Alternatives (2015). Yes, there are other advertising programs (sites) similar to Google Adsense.

2. Bidvertiser

Bidvertiser is a pay per click advertising site that could be a great Adsense alternative if you didn’t get Adsense approval or got banned. The way it works is little bit different from Adsense. While Adsense shows ads based on context or visitor’s interest, it creates a bidding system that allows highest bidder to advertise on your blog. Initially you won’t be able to earn much revenue as it takes some time to get your site found by Highest bidders. So stay longer.

Bidvertiser offers Text ads, Banner ads, Mobile Ads, Slider ads etc. You can also make money by promoting your customized toolbar. Minimum payment amount is $10 for PayPal and $50 for check.

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. However, you can use 2-3 networks at a time.

 Hope this post helps you to choose an alternative. Do let us know if you know any other alternatives. If you like this post, consider sharing it on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

      Strange that you are advising everyone in here about Adsense when you don’t have Adsense on your webpage. You got banned too?

      • Istiak Rayhan says

        No. I am just experimenting with Affiliate banner.

  1. says

    Helpful article with complete information and easy to understand. currently I am using Adsense and Chitika on my blog kerryseo.co.uk to generate online income.
    thanks
    Kerry tiwana

  2. says

    I just got disapproved by adsense after all the effort I put in creating a wonderful wordpress blog. So, I found your alternatives as saving grace for me because of the disappointment. Thank you.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      What works for me might not work for you. So I’d suggest you to do A/B tests to find out what works for you.

  3. Madhavan says

    I tried all you said, every thing is waste, Unless you have good hits or traffic, none of these guys are going to pay. As such, I would confirm 100% saying, unless there is good no of hits, Even you have good hits to your blog or website, still some fools will not click on the ads, rather they will click the X mark to close it, so all these infolinks,qadabra,bidvertiser,chitika,……. will not pay not a $, single cent also. To some extent, media.net is OK, but they also not approve so easily like Google Adsense. Can you close this blog and sit at home quiet, do not cheat people.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Madhavan, I can understand your frustation. The thing is that if you don’t have a good amount traffic even Adsense won’t work for you. The alternatives I’ve mentioned on the post are the most popular Ad networks after Adsense. If you have any better alternatives, let me know.

      And talking about your last line, just because it’s online doesn’t mean it’s not rude. Could you say this to me in person?

      Have a nice day!

  4. says

    I am not agree with madhavan comment. If anyone fail to get benefit from these alternatives then it does not mean they are wrong or author trying to cheat people here. Traffic is the only key to make money online, if your blog dont have traffic then world´s best program even can’t work for you.

    Hi , I am using Qadabra.com & Adsense for my blog (http://angulartutorial.blogspot.in) and it works great for me .I am using 3 ads unit .Recently I added Revenuehits.com in my blog as you suggested in your post. My question is, is there any problem for using two different Ad networks in one blog and I am using total 5 ad units including both in one blog. Please suggest.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Don’t worry. It’s OK to use several Ad networks. Just make sure you are not adding two ads side by side.

  6. says

    Nice to read such guide about good alternative of Google Adsense. From the list given by you I would like to join infolink.Thanks for posting this.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Let me whether Infolinks works for you or not.

  7. says

    Thank you for the guide on adsense alternatives. I am a newbie in all this blogging stuff and there are lots for me to learn. My brother experienced the same thing as one of the commenters here. Nothing paid him. None at all. So we both did some research and found out that it will take a great effort to generate massive traffic before somebody actually clicks on the link. Not to mention, unique and helpful blog posts will help as well.
    Thank you for posting this. It got my eyes opened.
    Cheers! :)

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Indeed it requires massive traffic to generate revenue from Advertising networks.

  8. Roxana Sofia says

    I have had bad experience using ad networks until I discovered Adtomatik. The best ecpm and the highest fill rates. Its a safe brand. Recommend it.

  9. says

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Have you contact with Chitika?

  10. says

    I am using Adtomatik. Has more than 2,000 premium advertisers. Increase your revenue and run CPA CPL CPM CPC campaigns with worldwide reach, and highest fill rates. Recommend it.

  11. says

    In some cases, many bloggers and marketers want to know some top paying or high-paying adsense alternatives.

    It’s easier said than done to pass over Google Adsense’s qualifications, some were banned and it’s like a horror story for them. Since there are alternatives and we know not all knows that there are other ways to make money even without Google Adsense, this article will open their mind and give them hope.

    Affiliate marketing is one of the best and I want it to put forward. I also like Chitika, it is painless to use and applying is uncomplicated.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Affiliate marketing is awesome. Most of the time you’ll get immediate approval. Thanks for your nice comment.

      I’d suggest you to sign up for Gravatar.com to show your picture on your comment.

    Thanks for the article. Just a couple of questions. Do any/all of these alternatives hve the same problem as adsense with:
    – popup windows asking people to click on adverts to support the site?
    – youtube embeds?
    I think the second is whyI’ve been disabled by adsense

  13. says

    I have to websites .both are banned for google adsense. i used chitika before but not satisfied with earnings.

    now using bidvertiser but they also bad. which one i should try now?

    here is my 2 websites

    I’ve been using Bidvertiser, but seems like it’s not earning much anymore. I got like 2000 impressions per month, and pending balance is 0.01$. I think I’m gonna try to go to Adversal. Hope I got accepted.

  16. says

    To be quite honest, there is no AdSense alternative. All you can say is that if you can’t use AdSense then there are some other services that can be used but not as an alternative. I’ve tried almost all of them and no other advertising program pays like AdSense does.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      So true. I’ve mentioned that in my post.

  17. says

    First of all thank you very much for this nice article.
    All of those ad network pay good. But can you please specify any one or two ad network that could be the best google adsense alternative.

  18. says

    i have recently placed bidvertiser ads on my blog, but my daily earning is only 0.04$(800 page views) from it.

  19. says

    Hi Istiak,

    I’d like to inform your readers about our services. http://www.adgo.tv. We are a new advertisement agency and we’ve help a few publishers monetize their sites. Truth be told we may not be the best fit for some of your readers. Some of the publishers we are working with, we’ve nearly doubled their revenue in comparison to what they were getting. Google Adsense is great for some, but as you know if you’re lucky enough to find an adnetwork or adagency that can work with you, Google Adsense just doesn’t compare.

    Thank you,
    James
