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 of 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 (2015). Yes, there are other advertising programs (sites) similar to Google Adsense.

Let’s see some more details of these networks…
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.

Media.net is one of the best alternatives for Adsense. It is a contextual ad network, powered by Yahoo and Bing. It enables publishers to earn money from advertising revenue.

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 and $50 for check.
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.
Adversal is the best Adsense alternative in terms of serving ads. It has a great CTR and works with several languages. You need to have monthly page views of 50,000 to apply this network. Minimum payout is $20 and payment modes are PayPal, ACH, Check, or Wire. It has an affiliate program too.
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.
Next Google Adsense alternative is Chitika. If you are tired of not getting Adsense approval, then sign up for Chitika. You need not get approval for using Chitika ads on your site. That means you can monetize your low traffic site with Chitika. Just create an account and put ads on your site.

Adengage is an online advertising network for publishers to sell direct ads. Since arrival, it has served 1.2 trillion Ads. Minimum payout is $50 and you can get paid via Paypal, Wire, Check and Western Union.
Qadabra is a self-serve ad platform that offers performance-based advertising. It was formerly known as AdsGadget. It requires only 15 seconds 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.
Kontera is similar to Infolinks. Kontera Ads appear on hyperlinked 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 many 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. However, you can use 2-3 networks at a time.
