Top 10 High Paying Google AdSense Alternatives In 2016

AdSense AlternativesFor Bloggers
How many times have you applied 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 a decent amount of revenue to their publisher.

To be honest, though there are a lot of ad networks but there is no real alternative to AdSense. AdSense is still the best Advertising Network. But I believe ‘Something is better than nothing’.  That’s why I am going to share some AdSense alternatives.

If you are one of 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 (2016) that are similar to Google AdSense.

2. RevenueHits

Revenuehits admits that they are not as good as AdSense, but they believe they are better than other alternatives. It’s a Performance base Ad Network that helps publishers to generate more revenue. If you are going to use this network, I would suggest you to keep your ads running for 5-6 days to get best results.

3. 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 a little bit different from Adsense. While Adsense shows ads based on context or visitor’s interest, it creates a bidding system that allows the 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/Payza and $50 for check.

Infolinks offer 4 types of ads – InFold, InText, InTag, and InFrame. All of them are designed to overcome banner blindness. Minimum payment threshold of $50 for Paypal or $100 for Bank wire.

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.

Hi Rayhan,

I am doing blogging for 3 months and got Google Adsense approval, but media.net has disapproved my blog.

I do not understand why media.net has not approved my blog..?? Can you tell me Why..??

Indeed a Great post.

But according to me, none of the AdSense alternatives can give the revenue as much as Adsense can give. I haven’t tried all the above alternatives but I tried infolinks, and I had worst experience with it. After having a huge amount of traffic, I was able to make only 100-200$.

Because my blog was banned by Adsense. If this didn’t happen then that traffic can surely make around $2k+.

That’s why infolinks is far away from Adsense in terms of generating revenue.

BTW Thanks for sharing it with us.

    I completely agree with you. AdSense has no real alternative. And I’ve mentioned this in the post. However, have you tried Amazon Native Ads? I hear good things about this.

    Glad you found this post useful. I’ve applied for BuySellAds a long ago, but they rejected my application. I will apply it for soon. Recently I’ve discovered Amazon Native Ads. It seems a good one to me. If your blog generates US traffic, you can use it.

Revenue hits is a good alternative for AdSense. Although infolinks is good ad network, but to earn high revenue publishers need high traffic from search engine.

I would rate Revenue Hits better than Media.net. If your website is receiving lots of traffic and that too from countries like USA then Media.net will work fine. Else, They don’t provide good CPM for non US traffic.

Concern to Google Adsense Alternatives, I’d highly recommend Infolinks, or Media.net else Chitika. They converts really well as because now-a-days I’m thinking of monetizing my blog too and was in search for some good networks other than Google Adsense. Aww, it sucks something, and so I’ve found the right article.

Perhaps, thanks for the awesome and comprehensive article,

Last month I got a payment from Revenuehits. It is not a bad alternative of google adsense. But sometimes it gives me a very low CPM.

Google adsense account is very unsafe and I have seen many people losing their adsense account these days. These alternatives will definitively help. Is approval process easy or tough than adsense for these google adsense alternatives ?

Thank you so much Istiak brother for sharing an useful information for webowners to select best alternative to Adsense but i think every blog should use first of all on priority basis Google Adsense because it gives you more revenue than others. But in my view RevenueHits and Media.net are the best.

I’m not sure why but I don’t trust websites which display ads other than Adsense. Only the highest quality and honest websites display Adsense. Adsense is the best!

    This is because other networks require a lot of traffic to generate revenue which makes people to use ads excessively on their blog.

    Being a Bangladeshi site is not a problem as long as your contents are in English. Media.net has both Paypal and Wire payment method. You can consider using Wire Payment method for getting payment in Bangladesh.

Hi Ishtiyak,

Good list of adsense alternatives. I have used chitika and other ones. But the payment is less. Currently, I am using revenue hits and infolinks are very good. Last year I got $200 on infolinks. Its going good now.

It’s all about testing and optimizing. All of the top digital publishers work with multiple networks, often more than 20 ad networks at once. Some other networks worth testing are AddPlay.com and Content.ad.

Hi Ishtiyak,

Infolinks is a Good alternative for adsense. I used it on some of my blogs for testing purpose. But, they paid me very less than what adsense pays me with

similar traffic.

Still, Infolinks is better if any blogger don’t have adsense and want to earn money with advertisements.

Thanks fro this post!
