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).

Let’s see some more details of these networks…

1. 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.

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.
Revenuehits offers Banner ads, Sliders, Pop unders, button etc. Minimum payout is $50.

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+.

    Very useful post. Thank you so much for sharing. Actually I have heard about clicksor but I haven’t ever tried the others yet.. but i agree with you that recently Google AdSense is becoming stricter. It is necessary for us to find another ways to survive in making money online.

  2. says

    I registered for Media Net, Chitika and Infolinks.. Sadly, have earned nothing from the latter two.. only media net is showing some $1.6 after 7 days.. is it that low? I get about 500 daily pageviews

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Yeah, Most of the Ad networks require a lot of traffic to generate income. I suggest you to try Affiliate Marketing.

    • says

      You could try Adsharemarket.com and set your own pricing…

  3. says

    I have been using Media.net for long time. It is not as good as Google Adsense. But It pays enough. I do not have a lot of page views. but I am earning good. I also tried infolinks before. But it pay less than media.net for click.

  4. Istiak Rayhan says

    Yes, Media.net is the best Adsense alternatives.

  5. says

    A nice pay-per-sale alternative for Adsense is Affburner. The funny thing is that it works identical ;)

  6. Rajendra Reddy says

    After google adsense infolinks and Bidvertiser are best, chitika does not work good for our traffic

  7. WAQAS AHMED says

    I think now a days getting google adsense is very hard and new bloggers can’t get google adsense easily so these Adsense Alternatives are very good for those to make good amount.

    Thanks

    • says

      Bidvertiser became scam…You can’t Contact them…I got 800+ clicks not impressions and earned only 2$…:(
      Nothing comes against adsense….Adsense is the end

      • says

        Yes, I truly agree with you but there is a question! If someone get banned by Adsense then what will be the solution for him?

        If Adsense is the end then will their earning be also end??

        • Istiak Rayhan says

          Adsense is not the end of the world! You can try direct adverting, affiliate marketing or Adsense alternatives.

  8. Jonny says

    Google AdSense sucks. Most bloggers will get banned within 6 months for unknown reasons!

    • says

      Google will ban small blogs and websites simply because they are too cheap to pay you $500 to you.

  9. Marius de Beer says

    Chitika is a joke. Have you SEEN their ads? It looks like it was done in MS Paint during the 90’s. I had it on my site for less than 10 minutes before I removed it.

    I am currently experimenting with Qadabra which looks way better on my blog.

  10. says

    @Marius not only Chitika, most of them are of no use but if you have good quality US traffic then they do come alive!

  11. says

    which 1 will give ads on sub-domains..plz tell sir..

  12. Alexdevan says

    Hi Istiak Rayhan

    Which one best online Earn Money ,please Suggest any one

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Actually you need to do some A/B testing to know which one works better for you.

  13. says

    Hey this is Nadir Patel from eClickZ.com one of the top adsense alternatives. Signup now at our website to earn more revenue from your website! You forgot to add us to the list! Thanks!

  14. says

    I am receiving a decent amount of traffic but not able bank it in a good manner because of Google dfp ctr issues. So i decided to use chitika along with google dfp. But to my surprise chitika is for no use. I got only 20 cents for 450 clicks. That is ridiculous.
    Infolinks is better in some manners though.

  15. Gregory J. Costas says

    I can say that only selling ads thru http://BuySiteAds.com will help webmasters to make some $$. Affiliates wont pay anymore.

  16. says

    I must say, Media.net is the best Adsense Alternatives in terms of cpc. However it is depends on source country and based on it, Alternative will varries. For asian countries, Media.net is good but for Westurn other will good.

  17. says

    But getting into Media.net is more tougher than Adsense. I have tried several times but no luck with me. I have to rely on infolinks most of the time.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Just get a good looking theme, you’ll get approved by Media.net.

  18. says

    im using infolinks from several months but….i did not get anything from it…..and i applied in media.net but luck with not me…get rejected all times….

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Gaurav, have you tried Bidvertiser or Qadabra?

  19. says

    HI i am using google blogspot .

    Right now i am using chitika and adhits …….. ( $.o1 )

    I started this blog last 4 month before and i am getting daily 300 visitors .

    Can you suggest me which adsence suit for my blog .

    http://angulartutorial.blogspot.in

      • says

        Thanks …

        I never applied .But blogspot disabled my adsence .

        Now a days google wont allow to apply for adsence if that blog is less than 6 month old ( Indian bloggers ).

        So only i can try after 2 month .

        Adhits is showing at least some dollers ( $2 ) . But chitika nothing .

        And it is very difficult to get google adsence now a days .

        I am gonna try qadbra along with adhits

        • Istiak Rayhan says

          Good idea. Try Media.net too.

  20. says

    I was not able to get approved by the adsense due to some reasons and was disappointed but after reading this article about alternatives to Google Adsense gave me hope to earn from other network. Thank You admin, I appreciate your efforts.

  21. Axee says

    I have tried all the above ads network.. Qadabra was the best among all but they have started the new scam of ignoring all Asian traffic.. I tried many other networks but finally I have found the best among all and it is the Propeller Ads network, which is basically a network from UK. It has been paying me $20-$30 per day for my 3000-4000 daily visitors, eventhough I have just posted 3 ads on my site.

  22. says

    I’m totally fed up of requesting adsense and finally i decided to use alternate ads like adbrite and Chitika. Right now i am good with Chitika ads. Chitika provides decent ads like google ads.
    This is really amazing post. you have listed the best alternatives of adsense. Thanks a lot for sharing this post :)

  23. says

    Thank you for sharing.

    I have tried Bidvertiser for 7 days ($ 15)

    Adcash.com may also be tried, with over 5000 visitors per day, I got about $ 2-3 per day (pop-up ads).

    I will try Media.net

  24. Vinit says

    Hi Istiak, Thanks for sharing this awesome list :)
    I don’t know why google disapproved my adsense account without any reason but thanks for sharing this post.
    I am going to try media.net and bidvertiser for my blog.
    Has anybody used http://adsensemarket.com for buying adsense account because my friend buyed adsense account from them and i don’t know weather i should buy or not?

  25. John says

    Hello,

    I would like to inform you about AdsBolt, (http://adsbolt.com)
    I recently came across this Ad Network, its comparatively new then those listed above but works wonder for me. It accepts almost all websites and have some awesome features like payout within 48 Hours, low payout at $5, real time stats update and payment through paypal.

    There is no harm in trying them as you will see the results and cash flooding into your account really fast!

  26. Daniel says

    I’m using adtomatik for the last two months ago and got very good results, higher fill rates and best ecpm than others ad networks.

  27. says

    I would prefer Media.net is a best alternative of Google Adsense, Chitka is also good alternative to make money.
    But if you really want to make money, then you should try Affiliate Marketing for that.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Regard

  28. says

    Hi Istiak Rayhan,

    Glad to read such comprehensive alternative of Google Adsense guide. Well, in concern to alternatives, I’d be recommending Infolinks, or Media.net either as both combinely works great. On contrary, for making a good dollars out of a blog Affiliate Marketing proves to be really great.

    Thanks for the great contribution. Have a great weekend ahead.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      I always suggest people to do some A/B testing. What works for me might not work for you. It’s always better to find out the best one via testing.

      And yes, affiliate marketing is awesome.

      • Kweku says

        what is the best affiliate marketing programme?

  29. says

    Hi

    I have had a very good read through here and there are some fantastic information.
    I personally use Infolinks and Qadabra. Both of them seem to be doing a pretty good job although I have found sometimes Qadabra shows annoying popup which comes up on screen and flash player has stopped working and screen freezes for at least 15 seconds. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Thanks for sharing your experience!

  30. says

    Chitika is the best, I experence same rates from adsense. Maybe I am just lucky to have green country traffic. Have a nice blogging my friend…

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      I can understand your feelings. However, Good luck with the alternatives.

  31. says

    After having adsense ad serving disabled on my prized website, I went without monetization for 6 months while receiving at least 2500 unique visits per day. I wish I had read this article when it was first published so I could have been using clicksor for August traffic. This article is very informative and useful. Thank you for writing and sharing this

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Glad you found it useful.

  32. says

    Perfect Collection of Adsense alternative, could you Add the madadsmedia. its also High paying Ad network personally, i like infolinks.

  33. g.harikrishna says

    if adsense publisher have 5 sites and views visit same sites in one computer it may effect to publisher id

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      No unless you click on your own ads.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Keep calm and try Adsense alternatives.

  34. says

    Hi Istiak, Thanks for making such a nice & Amazing list of High Paying Adsense for Blogs ! I just little know about these Paying Google Adsense But there is Media.net Adsense Account which really pay high Amount & others don’t much pay as Media net !

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Yes, Media.net is one of best alternatives.

  35. says

    Thank you for this list! I just joined Qadabra and I hope I see the wanted results out of it although my site is kinda new so I’ll see what would happen, their ads guarantee you to have impressions because they slide as people slide the page :D I used their placements and they’re rapidly working on my site.

  36. says

    I have tried Media.net and earning a decent income. And their ads are very attractive.
    Check their Ads here.

  37. Madhavan Pongoru says

    I have tried Google Adense several times with different websites, blogs and changing contents. All the time they have rejected without a reason. Looking at Google search I have tried alternatives which was mentioned in this post. No use, from Infolinks I just earned 6 cents after one month. Unless the ads displayed are very attractive and good, no body will click, Most of the times, infolinks popup ad, people cut them as it is disturbing.
    So finally it is very difficult to earn single cent through internet. All are cheating and bogus.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Hey Madhavan,

      I can understand your frustration. It happened with me too. Even if you get approved by Adsense, you won’t be happy cause Adsense requires a lot of traffic to generate revenue. And it’s hard to drive traffic to a new site. So I would suggest you to try Affiliate Marketing. You can read more about Affiliate Marketing here: http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/affiliate-marketing-strategies/

  38. Abdul says

    Hello

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      No, you are not allowed to create a new account.

  39. Nemanja says

    Hi,

    I have one site, and per day I have 1500-1700 pageviews or 1400 unique sessions. But my adsense banned by Google. I try to find good alternative. I was earning by adsense $15 per day.

    Which alternative do you recommend me? I suppose, that neither alternative like an Adsense,in payment system, but I looking good methods.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Actually there is no real alternative for Adsense. All I can suggest you is, try the different alternatives to determine which one works for you. Cause what works for me might not work for you.

  40. says

    Hi Istiak Rayhan

    Although I have got my Adsense approved successfully but one thing I always wanted to know briefly was that do these alternatives pay more than Google Adsense?

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      No, Adsense is still the best.

  41. says

    Hello Istiak Rayhan, thanks for writing this awesome article. I wanted to ask you, that what ad networks can we use along with google? Currently I am using google adsense but I am not able to make more than 1$ a day. My site is http://www.techengage.net . Can you please help me out? Thanks :)

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      You can use all of the above Ad networks along with Adsense. But you’ll have to make sure that you are not putting Adsense ads with others side by side. Hope it helps.

  42. says

    Hi Istiak
    I had already tried Infolinks on one of my event blog because my Adsense ads got banned on that website. I didn’t like much Infolinks because there was millions of pageviews but the CPC given by them is very low as compared to Google Adsense. I wants to know that Is media.net pays good than Infolinks? What you think about it?

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Actually it’s tough to suggest a specific one. Cause what works for me, might not work for you. In my personal experience, I found that Media.net is better than Infolinks.

    • says

      Hi Chetan Gupta
      I suggest to get direct advertiser because you have a huge of page views. I’m sure there a lot of people who tend to advertise on your site. You may post your site on any webmasters foum.

  43. says

    I have used Chitika in the past. Have you heard about Blogads? I am interested to find an alternative to Google Adsense in the future. The thing is that I don’t have a “ton of traffic” on the site I have in mind (a podcasting site) and I don’t want to clutter it with advertising.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      Yes, I’ve heard about Blogads. It’s similar to Buysellads.

      If you are not getting a good amount of traffic, then it’s tough to earn money from Advertising sites. I would suggest you to try Affiliate Marketing.

  44. says

    I’m glad you included Media.net. I haven’t tried all the options you’ve listed, but I’m hitting great revenue numbers with Media.net … like $400+ USD per day.

    I spent a couple of months really working on optimizing Media.net ads… tons of testing, but it paid off. A few tweaks I made took my revenue from $150 per day to $400 per day. Amazing what a little testing can do.

    • Istiak Rayhan says

      That’s awesome. Thanks for sharing your story.

  45. says

    Very good post and explanation….I am using Bidvertiser,infolinks and chitika….But the performance of bidvertiser is far good than the other two…Just added revenuehits just to know how much they are gonna pay me.
