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.

Let’s see some more details of these networks…
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.
Media.net is one of the best alternatives 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 other advertising networks. Mainly because it shows ads differently. It doesn’t take too many spaces of your site to show ads. It shows in text ads or pop up ads. You can use it with Adsense safely.
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.
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.
VigLink is totally different from other Ad networks. It converts normal links into affiliate links. If someone makes a purchase by using your link, you’ll earn commission out of it. For example, if you have a post about iPhone or you mentioned iPhone on a post, VigLink will automatically add new affiliate links or convert existing links to affiliate links.
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.
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.
