15 Best Google AdSense Alternatives For Bloggers In 2018

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, 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 (2018).

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. Let's check the top 5 alternatives first.

Note: This post is about the other Ad networks that can be used as an AdSense alternative. If you are looking for other alternative ways to make money rather than using AdSense, then read this post. Now let's see the complete list of AdSense Alternatives for Bloggers In 2018. 

Let's dive into more details of these ad networks.

1. Media.net

Media.net is a leading contextual advertising company which is powered by Yahoo! Bing Network. It is considered as the best AdSense alternative. Because of having tons of advertisers, it works great with every niche. Big brands like Forbes, Elle, REUTERS, NY Times, WebMD etc. use Media.net to increase their revenue.

Ad Types: Contextual Ads, Mobile Ads, In-Content Ads, Display Ads, Interstitial Ads.

Payment Methods: Payoneer ($100)

2. Amazon Native Ads

Amazon Associates is the world's largest affiliate program. The great thing about the program is, it has an advertising program named "Native Shopping Ads".

The way it works is a little bit different from AdSense. While AdSense pays you for clicks or impressions, Amazon Native Ads only pay you for sales. As Amazon is the world's most popular and largest eCommerce site, it's not that much tough to get sales from Amazon.com.

Amazon Native Shopping Ads show highly relevant product ads in stylish and responsive design to help you to earn more.

Ad Types: Recommendation Ads, Search Ads, & Custom Ads.

Payment Methods: $100 (Payoneer, Check)

3. Bidvertiser

Bidvertiser is a direct advertising site that could be an excellent AdSense alternative if you didn’t get Adsense approval or got banned. It offers instant approval. You can monetize your site within 5 minutes with BidVertiser.

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.

Ad Types: Native Ads, Pop Under, Domain Redirect, XML.

Payment Methods: $10 (PayPal, Payza, Wire Transfer, & Check)

Infolinks is a bit different from other advertising networks. It shows innovative ads based on user intent. You can monetize your all traffic with its advanced and unique ad units. Infolinks even monetizes the unused ad spaces.

It's very easy to use. Just sign up for free and paste the code. It will start monetizing your traffic. Infolinks has over 100,000 publishers world wide.

Ad Types: InText, InFold, InTag, InFrame.

Payment Methods: $50 (PayPal, eCheck, ACH, Payoneer), $100 (Bank Wire)

5. Adversal

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.

Ad Types: Banner & Pop Ads.

Payment Methods: $20 (PayPal, Check, Wire)

6. VigLink

7. BuySellAds

BuySellAds is an advertisement marketplace that connects publishers with advertisers. It is slightly different from other Ad networks I mentioned here. While other Ad networks pay based on CPC or CPM, BuySellAds pays for direct advertisement. It works as a middleman between advertiser and publisher. And it charges 25% of the transaction.

However, it’s tough to get approved by BuySellAds. You need to have a good amount of traffic to get approval. So if you are still struggling with AdSense approval, don’t try BuySellAds. Getting BuySellAds approval is tougher than AdSense. But it’s a good compliment for AdSense.

Ad Types: Banner & Text.

Payment Methods: $20 (PayPal), $50 (Check)

8. Propeller Ads

I’ve added Propeller Ads to this AdSense alternatives list mainly because a lot of people suggested Propeller Ads on the comment.

Propeller Ads is a UK based Ad network. It’s a CPM ad network which pays for every 1000 impressions. If you have traffic from U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, it will work great for you.

It has different types of ad products like OnClick PopUnder Ads, Mobile Ads, Banner Ads, Layer Ads, Slider Ads, Video Ads etc. It pays through Wire Transfer, Payoneer, Webmoney and Prepaid Cards.

Ad Types: Banner & Popunder.

Payment Methods: $50 (PayPal), $100 (Payoneer)

9. Chitika

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.

It offers 3 types of ads – Search Targeted Ads, Local Ads, and Mobile Ads. It’s PPC rates aren’t as good as AdSense.

Ad Types: Text & Banner.

Payment Methods: $10 (PayPal), $50 (Check)

10. Skimlinks

11. Adsterea

Adsterra is a premium ad network for publishers and advertisers. It offers highest CPM rates with global coverage. It has display banners, Popunders, direct links, sliders, push up ads etc. Publishers can receive their payments on time via Paypal, Bitcoin, Payoneer, WebMoney, Wire Transfer, Paxum, and Payza.

If you are getting a good amount of traffic on your blog, you can try Adsterra to maximize your revenue.

Ad Types: Banner & Popunder.

Payment Methods: $100 (PayPal, Payza, Bitcoin)

12. Adengage

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.

Ad Types:

Payment Methods

13. Adbuff

Adbuff is a high paying, Adsense alternative ad network that focuses on increasing revenue for quality publishers. They offer high paying CPM and CPC ads and deliver only high quality unobtrusive banners to visitors.

Ad Types: CPM & CPC

Payment Methods: $100 (PayPal, Payoneer)

14. Kontera

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.

Ad Types: Text & Banner

Payment Methods: $50 (PayPal, Wire, Check)

15. Revenuehits

Revenuehits is another good alternative to AdSense that tries to generate maximum profit for your traffic. It's owned by intago.

Ad Types: Display & Pop

Payment Methods: $20 (PayPal, Payoneer)


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.

Now I'd like to hear from you. Comment and let us know what is the best AdSense alternative according to you?

  • Bunyan says:

    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.

    • Ankur says:

      Thanks for the post buddy, I woulf like to add my experience with a list of adnetworks. I have attached proof for the CPM rates. Please have a look…

    • Sonia Chauhan 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.

  • Samson Ogola 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.

    • Joshua Olsen says:

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

  • Julia Roberts 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.

  • Istiak Rayhan says:

    Yes, Media.net is the best Adsense alternatives.

  • Eugene says:

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

  • Rajendra Reddy says:

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

  • 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.


    • paki 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

      • Shuvo Ahamed 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.

  • Jonny says:

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

    • Prashobh says:

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

  • 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.

  • Swayam Das 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!

  • samadrita says:

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

  • 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.

  • Nadir Patel 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!

  • Bobby 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.

  • 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.

  • Giri 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.

  • Mansi 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.

  • Gaurav Joshi 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?

  • Prashobh 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 .


    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Prashobh, have you ever tried for Adsense? If not, I’d suggest you to apply for Adsense account now. At least, you’ll know what you need to improve on your blog. Before applying for Adsense, read this post: https://roadtoblogging.com/what-you-should-do-to-get-google-adsense-account-approval/

      • Prashobh 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.

  • Hafiz Zeeshan Subhani 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 :)

  • M.Faizan Anjum says:

    Very Nice article but I want to say that adsnese is amazing.

  • John 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

  • 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?

  • John says:


    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!

  • 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.

  • Waqas Ahmed 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.


  • shahin says:

  • Bishal Biswas 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.
    – Bishal Biswas

    • 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?

  • Amrish says:


    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!

  • Mark 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…

  • Nelson says:

    I just created my site and got approved for Absense and those b*st*rds disabled my account.

    I’m done trying with Google. I played by the books only adding 3 ads on my page.


    • Istiak Rayhan says:

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

  • Anne Thornewell 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.

  • Ashfaq says:

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

  • g.harikrishna says:

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      No unless you click on your own ads.

  • Lely Hazna says:

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.

  • ebi says:

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

  • Madhavan Pongoru says:

    • 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/

  • Abdul says:

    My adsense account had disabled due to invalid click activity since 13 Oct 2014. I have appealed 2 times but it rejected, i never tried to violate any of terms & conditions of adsense. Tell me please can i apply for adsense through another email address for the same blogs. If not then recommend me best alternatives of adsense.
    My blogs are:

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

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

  • Nemanja says:


    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.

  • Adil Khan 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.

  • Techengage 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.

  • Chetan Gupta 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.

      • ArParvez says:

        Hello bro, I just going to open a website in the Bengali language can, I get approved on media.net after I spend some month on my site. Currently, my site hasn’t got premium extension or domain. I need these answer
        1, will media.net approve the Bengali language,
        2, what is the minimum visitors/traffic i need to get approved.
        if I can approve my website, then I will upgrade my site to premium.

    • Aires 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.

  • Rahul Yadav 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.

  • Jon 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.

    • Matt says:

      Jon, can you share some of those tips? I got 33,638 impressions and received $0 with Media.net. I contacted them and they said they were going to look at it…but never responded and it’s been 1 month. I guess they were focusing on selling the company for $900M and forgot about the little guy.

  • Khaled Syfullah 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.

  • Lina says:

    Sir, which ads is more suitable for my blog site? i only have about 250 to 300 page view… http://www.dillishblog.com

    • Dave says:

      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.

    • Sharad Gupta says:

      For low traffic websites, it is always better to concentrate on affiliate earnings so click bank or amazon can be the some good choice.

  • Kerry 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.

  • Emmanuel 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.

  • munna says:

    Sir, Can you tell me which one will be suitable for my technology blog ? http://techspree.net

    • 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.

  • 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!

  • Kerry 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.

  • Prashobh says:

    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.

  • Nitin Mohan 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.

      • benjamin walter says:

        can i apply for all this from Ghana?

  • Levy Lockheart 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.

  • 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.

  • vikas says:

    Last month I sign up for chitika publisher account. My two website were showing pending gold level application. But Now I am not able to signing in Chitika publisher Account. I don’t know why chitika not showing last 30 days my account update? What’s wrong with him.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Have you contact with Chitika?

  • Arslan Tahir 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.

  • Mark 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

  • Hasan 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


    • Prabhat Jani says:

      Same Here. My blog is banned by google and now i am looking for any alternative. Currently i have used chitika ads. Lets see what will happen.

  • Himanshu Sethi says:

    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.

  • Alex says:

    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.

  • Rahul Yadav 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.

  • Rayhan Islam 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.

  • bharat suthar says:

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

  • James 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,

  • Mohammed Hasan says:

    I have a blog. I want to added this all the advertisement what you’ve post, Will it ok for me?
    In a day how much traffic need a blog get payment? If someone not click the ads can I get pay because I am running their ads. Please sir answer my all question because it will help for me.

    Thank you

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It won’t be a good idea to use all the networks at the same time. I’d suggest you to do A/B testings to find out what works best for your blog. Some ad networks pay for impression. So even if your ads don’t get clicked, you may earn some bucks for impression.

  • Anne says:

    All the above mentioned alternatives are great,But i don’t think anyone of them will pay as good as Google adsense pays still Adbrite, bidadvertiser and info links are good for the newbie bloggers.

  • RAJ says:

    how to use/ incert revenuehits ad code on my website. I am already sign up to this. so please help me..I am waiting for your answer,

  • Naved Khan says:

    Great alternatives of google adsense. It’s good to see that there are also other ways to make money without adsense due to it’s hard approval and strict TOS which we have to take care of certain things to stop
    violating AdSense policies. However Adsense is the best advertising program to monetize any blog but if did’nt get approval or got banned from it then these alternatives are the best way to monetize any blog… of certain things to stop
    violating AdSense policies .Thanks a lot for sharing. :)

  • monim says:

    I have already worked with Chitika, Infolinks and PropellerAds Media. Among three of them PropellerAds Media is offering highest CPM. I have earned upto $5 per thousand impression for Onclick Ads. So I think propellerads should include in this list.

  • Google Adsense is the best revenue advertising program but I really don’t agree that it’s the best of all. Adsense has VERY strictly rules and may ban you even if you didn’t do anything to get that ban and the worst thing is, you cannot appeal (you can but you won’t get your account back).

    Infolinks- this is probably the worst advertising media, it has ONLY facebook ads and they are really untargeted that’s why I really don’t recommend this media, really bad.
    Adsense wins if you can have your account.


    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Agree with you. There is no real Adsense alternatives.

  • salek ahmed says:

    Hello istiak vaiya
    When i was not getting adsense in 1 month back, I lost my hope and become hopeless. But after complete your this awesome post My thought become changes. Thanks vai such an informative post !!!!!

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Glad I could help!

  • ISeen Lab says:

    google adsense alternative buysellads. i had got account approval for BuySellAds but not yet approved my any one of site. probably because of my site layout design it’s may happen. now i have start a new blog like you and write technical content so i got approval from buysellads.
    thank for support.

    i don’t have affiliate marketing experience can you write an article on it.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, Getting approved by BuysellAds is tough.

      I am planning to write a detailed post on Affiliate Marketing. Stay connected.

  • Atul gupta says:

    My blog is fully based on movies and songs, so which adsense alternative will be best for me.

  • Emowv Now says:

    Do any of these adsense alternatives offer video ads support? If not is there one you would recommend?

  • Kevin says:

    Nice list. My personal favorite from this list is definitely Infolinks due to its easy implementation. Although there are some in there that I haven’t tried yet :)

  • Anuj Sogarwal says:

    First of all Thank You to provide such very useful list of AdSense alternatives. But I have a question ? Will you please help me out.

    I have no idea about blogging, once I purchased a domain http://www.itsjoking.com . As name present; this can be used for entertainment purpose. And when I tried to Adsense, Google refuse my application 5-6 times.

    Please suggest me a good ad network that will work with my site.

    Thanks again.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      I’d suggest you try several networks to find out what work best.

  • Sumit Garg says:

    Thank you for providing the list of best alternatives of adsense. I have used Infolinks, it does not give much compared to adsense but in my case, it is best for me as compared to other alternatives. Now, after Infolinks, I am impressed with Revenue Hits. It is also a good option.

  • Magda says:


    For me Google Adsense have been the easy one. But, it is always good to know about other great alternatives.

    I have used many of it as trials, and top three are Infolinks, Viglink and RevenueHits.

    Nice list. :)

  • Nikkibru says:

    Istiak Rayhan ,
    My website is based on helping others and I was wondering, which adsense alternative will be best for me. All this is new to me. I did try Chitika which was not really a good option. My website is http://www.iruce.com/
    By reading it seems like Media.net maybe the best, but what do you think?
    Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      What works for me might not work for you. You have to figure out what works for you by doing A/B testing.

  • Hemz says:

    Whatever alternative we use, nothing can replace Google Adsense when it comes to earnings from advertising. For me personally Media.net is the one which provides better result next to adsense. Apart from this, i have used Infolinks which is very good (if you have huge traffic), and chitika also convert very well only for US and UK Traffic. Regarding the Adversal, i have tried them once but not really happy with their CPC rates compared to other ad network and not using that anymore.

  • Rudy says:

    I think PropellerAds and Infolinks work great for me. But you need at least 70% traffic from USA, Canada and UK.

  • Mahedi says:

    I think you made a mistake about Google AdSense, Actually it’s not so hard to approve it. If you have desired ambition to getting AdSense account, you can get it easily with maintain proper rules and regulations. You can visit my blog: journeytoblog.com . I think you will get what you’re looking for from my first experience.Thank you.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Thanks for sharing your experience.

  • warda farooq says:

    There are no doubt that Google adsense is the world best Ad network for earn money from websites, but Google Giving strict policies
    My most favorite and highly paying advertising network is buysellads after Google Adsense.

  • Congo Techin says:

    Thanks for the post.
    i think that you could also try and add Taboola to the list.
    Its a high paying Contextual Ad Network

  • viraj says:

    I have this hollywoodlatestupdates.com website where I post the latest entertainment news from Hollywood.
    AdSense approved my request and one can see ads on my website.
    It’s been a month ever since my website went live and so far I have 10k+ page views and am sure it is going to increase by the end of this month.
    The money I am generating from AdSense is negligible.
    Can anyone recommend me which alternate service I can apply to, along with AdSense? something that will generate a little extra?

  • minako says:

    I’ve applied for adsense and wordads.
    Still, in the mean time waiting for their reply, I browse other alternatives and stumble upon your article here.

    I’m a beginner on this place ads thingy. I’ve sign up for Revenuehits but I don’t even know how to place ads. I have both Blogger and WordPress blog.
    i’ve tried several methods and still haven’t know much.

    Can you maybe recommend a not complicated alternative for me?

  • Hi, Istiak thanks for the article. Very informative and the minimum payout was much needed info. Can you suggest me what ad program I should run at my blog. My blog is a food blog and it has age of roughly 6 months. Should I start ad program or should I wait for 1 year minimum? Please reply me after checking my blog. Thanks in advance.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It’s a good idea to start ASAP so that you can figure out what works and what doesn’t work early. However, I’d suggest you to start Affiliate Marketing to earn more.

  • Arya says:

    I am happy to have this blog to learn about alternatives of AdSense, I was sad because I could not make it to their high-end policy. Thank you Mr.Istiak for good informative blogging. I would love to know if you can guide me through high-quality organic search traffic, i.e. SEO. I need it for my website.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

  • For me personally Media.net is the one which provides better result next to adsense. Apart from this, i have used Infolinks which is very good

  • Augustus says:

    Hi, thanks for this great compilation, I think it will go a long way in giving bloggers an alternative over AdSense. Bloggers work hard to direct traffic to their websites, and make small money from Adsense, sometimes they even get banned without any reason. This your post will give bloggers more option.

    I wrote a post about why bloggers should never use Adsense on their blog http://www.oksprout.com/2015/09/google-adsense-alternative.html I think your readers will find it resourceful.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Good points. I always suggest bloggers not to rely on one source of income only. Relying only on Adsense is like putting all eggs on one basket. Thanks for your valuable comment.

  • Jewel Rahman says:

    Strange that you are advising everyone here about Google Adsense when you don’t have Adsense on your website. You got banned already?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      No, dear. I’ve just stopped using Adsense on RTB. I am giving more attention to Affiliate Marketing.

  • Sirosh Nasir says:

    Your blog is just awesome. No doubt you have given detailed review of all the networks but Revenuehits is one of the best adsense alternative.

  • Swaraj Nandedkar says:

    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!

  • Zak says:

    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.

  • Umapathy says:

    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.

  • Ali says:

        • Istiak Rayhan says:

          Revenuehits is a good choice. Hope it will work for you.

  • K Bharath says:

    only our site or blog doesn’t get approved in google adsense after multiple attempts we can try these alternatives.

    but nothing stands before google adsense for startup bloggers to earn some decent money.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      True. There is no real Adsense alternatives.

  • Amanur Mamun says:

    Is media.net accept Bangladeshi website.Are they accept Bangladeshi Visitor clicks.
    If paypal is only method for payment and Bangladesh does not support it then How can get payment from media.net

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      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.

    For my site that have 80% USA traffic i use Tribaladnetwork.com. It is a PPC ad network and i get around 0,30$ per click but also i get around 3$ for conversions.

  • Ron Bray says:

    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!

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

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

  • This is very interesting. Thanks for the info. I agree – something’s better than nothing!

  • Moon Ali says:

    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.

  • Sam Jackson says:

    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 ?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Approval process is easier than Adsense.

  • Steve says:

    Your right when you put Revenuehits ad network in the first list, it’s really in my point of view the best Adsense alternative. Nice post and very helpful blog. Good luck friend.

  • Rayhan says:

    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.

  • Daniel says:

    Have anyone ever tried Advertise.com. Some of my colleagues told me that Advertise.com is a good platform for publishers in terms of payment and customer support as well.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

  • Sam Jackson says:

    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,

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Glad you found it useful. Let me know if you need any other helps.

  • Shri says:

    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.

  • Tim Martine says:

    Thankx for really a informative post, i was with adsense like 5 years and now they blocked my website for no reason, i have a video content website and im looking for a inline video ads provider, means i want to show ads inside my JW player, before i was using adsense video ads and now im looking for some alternative, hope i will get some usefull information from you, btw thankx for a great blog

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Glad I could help.

  • Aptha gowda says:

    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.

  • rakesh says:

    How grateful am I reading this article Thanks to let us know about high paying Google Adsense alternatives for our blog. There are no doubt that Google Adsense is the world best Ad network for earn money from websites, but Google Giving strict policies My most favorite and highly paying advertising network is buysellads after Google Adsense.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      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.

  • Brenda Smith says:

    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.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      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.

  • Gaurav Verma says:

    I really like media.net that is best Adsense alternative in my way.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      That’s right. It’s the number 1 AdSense alternative according to our poll.

  • Sakshi says:

    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..??

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Didn’t Media.net provide any reason for disapproval?

      • Sakshi says:

        I have large traffics from Google 400+ visits per day, but there are not any visits from Yahoo or Bing.
        Please help me to get traffics from Yahoo and Bing!!

        • Istiak Rayhan says:

          Most of the people use Google. That’s why you are getting most of the traffic from Google, not Yahoo/Bing. Here at RoadToBlogging, most of our traffic come from Google. Don’t worry about Yahoo/Bing traffic. Just try to increase Google traffic.

  • Akash says:

    Hi Istiak, thanks for sharing wonderful information. I applied for media.net not replied its been two weeks- what would be the reason?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Have you contacted them?

  • srp says:

    Which is best AdSense alternative for Indian traffic?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Try Media.net or Revenuehits.

    • Subaharan Nithiyananthan says:

      I would recommend you apply for Media.net. It’ll work very well, but you should get target traffic from search engines.

  • Vrushali says:

    Actually, I have tried all of them as Google Alternatives. But The truth is that no one compete with Adsense at all. For smaller blogs I would recommend:
    Amazon Display ads : one of LOW CPM ad network.
    Bidvertisor and Clicksor: serve low-quality ads, so your site may be flagged as malicious.
    Viglink, Skimlinks, Infolinks, Chitika: Low rates. Infolinks makes blogs look too busy when they use the inframe and infold ads.

    RevenueHits is a SPAM ad networks. You can check it’s reputation on the internet.

    Adversal, Adsoptimal, Media.net are still BEST high paying Google Adsense alternatives for our blog. They have better designs, which provides better result next to AdSense.

    From my experience, I would like to say, don’t limit yourself to any one AD NETWORK. Try other ad networks and see which one work the best with your micro-niche blog. Since you are trying micro-niche blog, try monetizing with affiliate products. I would recommend to you & for others to try more network, and figure out which one is working best for their blog type.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Hi Vrushali,

      Thanks for sharing your insights on different Ad networks. It will help others to choose a better one. If you are in affiliate marketing, you will love our Affiliate Marketing category.

    Thank you so much, bro, for sharing such a useful information for bloggers to select the best alternative to Adsense, but I think every blog should use biggest ad network in the world which is Google Adsense because it gives you more revenue than others.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      That’s right. But sometimes people have heard time to get approved by AdSense or even worse get banned by AdSense. At that time, alternatives can help them to generate some revenue.

  • Appu Gowda says:

    Thanks for the post. Revenue hits & Infolinks are good alternatives for adsense. But to earn high revenue from intext ad platforms like infolinks, publishers need huge traffic from search engines. Otherwise, earnings will be very low. Difficult for new bloggers to get search traffic.

  • Hi,

    Good alternatives. However, I suggest you to add Propeller Ads in the list too. My experience with Propeller Ads is amazing.

  • Deepak Rana says:

    Hey, Istiak. This is a great list of some other ad networks on the internet. I use media.net and infolinks on my niche blogs and they working out really good, so far. Other than that, Amazon native shop is a good alternative if you’re targeting buyer intent keywords on the blog and having Tier1 traffic on blog.
    Keep the great work up!

  • Julie Reynolds says:

    This is a solid list. I think I’ve worked with over half of these networks. A couple others that generate good CPM’s is Envero Media which provide sponsored content at the bottom of articles and  provide games widgets which monetise high CPM video ads.

  • Sona Mathews says:

    I like the way you write articles and share content. This is definitely a huge life of Adsense alternatives. I believe being a good affiliate marketer is the best alternative to anything else.

    Thank you for your efforts. Keep sharing more.

  • Appu says:

    Good Post Rayhan.

    In my opinion, Google Adsense is the Best Adnetwork among all other ad networks. But when it comes to Adsense Alternatives, Then Media.Net is Best. Revenue Hits & Infolinks are also good Alternatives. & Popads.net is the best popup ad network.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Thanks for sharing your opinions. I think Media.net is the best AdSense alternative.

  • Solidworks says:

    These ad networks are great, but I don’t think that all these comparable to Adsense. Google Adsense is different than others.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Google AdSense is one of a kind. And it will remain as the best ad network. However, some of the above networks are also doing good.

  • sendra says:

    First thanks for this wonderful list. But I need some help from you. Can you tell which ads network have highest CPM in the above list? Also, I can only receive the payout from PayPal and Payooner only.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Try Media.net or Revenuehits.

  • Albert says:

    Hello Istiak, you have shared a great post here. I am sure there are many which are paying more than Google Adsense. By the way thanks a lot for this amazing post again.

  • Hello Istiak, you’ve enriched my knowledge regarding AdSense alternatives. In fact, I knew only a few alternatives of AdSense, but you’ve fulfilled my knowledge in a much better way.

    By the way, do they generate handsome income for publishers? Look forward to hearing form you if you’ve any idea about that.

    Best Regards, SM Nuruzzaman

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      They are not as good as AdSense. But some of them are paying handsome revenue, specially Media.net.

  • Solidworks says:

    These ad networks are great but I don’t think that all these comparable to Adsense. Google Adsense is different than others.

  • Danny S says:

    Great list!
    At this point, after working with so many networks, I choose MarketAds.
    They have the best rates for CPM pop-under ads both for small or big publishers.
    You should check it out.

  • Hi Istiak ,
    I feel that Chikita.com is more helpful in explaining for the new bloggers. I currently use yllix it is not on your list. At moment I am satisfied because they have really lot of options for placing ads and lot of different advertisers, but I am always ready for change if someone convince me that I will get more with some of above.
    Thanks, great article

  • Emon khan says:

    I’m from Asia
    In our country I only have got a Payoneer master card . PayPal or others are not supported here.
    So, can anyone suggest any monetizing website media.net????
    I’m in need of this very badly

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      You can get paid via Wire transfer from Media.net.

      • Emon khan says:

        What is Wire transfer?????

        • Istiak Rayhan says:

          Wire transfer means bank transfer.

          • Emon khan says:

            Will it support Dutch Bangla Bank of Bangladesh as a Wire transfer????
            And, is there any problem with transferring money by wire transfer ?????

            • Istiak Rayhan says:

              Yes, it will. I’ve got several payments in DBBL through AdSense Wire Transfer. And there is no problem in Wire transfer.

  • maaz saleem says:

    Hi,i asked this question two days ago that which of these support Youtube channels??

  • I Get Approved By Media.net…It Was Good In First Week I Get 2$ RPM And I Earned 2$ In One Week,But After That Everything Goes Wrong…RPM Decreasing Day By Day Now Its Zero…I Thought Somewhere Or Other I Would Making Any Mistake..But After Waiting A Week I Removed Media.net… So What Is The Problem,My Other Friend Also Get Same Problem With Media.net…Sorry For My English..

  • Hello,

    I am looking for a secondary Ad network which I can use with Google Adsense for some extra Income from my Micro Niche sites. All my sites are Adsense based micro sites, but I have a big confusion, as i have been reading few reviews of different ad networks around the web and base don all the reviews, I am confused between, Infolinks, Revenuehits, Bidvertiser & Chitika.

    So, according to you, which one should I use to get the maximum from my micro niche sites traffic?

    My traffic is a mix from all the countries, also do let me know, which advertiser works best for which country?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Do some A/B testings with different ad networks and pick high performing networks.

    • Kundan Yadav says:

      Ma’am You Can Safely Use Chitika ads along with Adsense. Chitika works fine with Adsense.?

    • Kundan Yadav says:

      Ma’am You Can Safely Use Chitika Ads along with Adsense. Chitika Ads Works Fine With Adsense. You Can Funnel More from your site using Chitika + Adsense Strategy.??

  • Gaurav Verma says:

    I tried mostly adsense alternatives but no one can pay high than adsense. I think every one should use affiliate marketing as adsense alternative.

  • Umesh says:

    I tried these out but no one can pay higher than Adsense. Media.net is enough good in this list but CPM is low.

  • Matt says:

    You should remove Media.net immediately..They are sold for $900M and they stopped paying me for the last 3 months. I get around 50k impressions per month and revenue is $0. I contacted them and responded saying my traffic is low quality. Low quality traffic equals low revenue NOT $0. 85% of my traffic is coming from the US and 90% Google searches, by the way.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Let’s see what other Media.net users are saying.

      • Matt says:

        User sourabh karole said the same thing.

  • Ole Hansen says:

    I have used Chitika in many years, i don’t make so much like before 3 – 4 years ago but anyway the service work well.
    I will try another one and see what is better for me, i thinking about Media.net i will request for an invitation.

  • Yash Patel says:

    I am looking for a secondary Ad network which I can use with Google Adsense for some extra Income from my Micro Niche sites

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      You can use any of these ad networks with AdSense. My recommendation is, Media.net.

  • Bindiya says:

    Don’t know why but media.net didn’t approve my site to shoe their ads. Can you suggest next best option after media.net?

    Ad quality of BidVertiser is not really decent, i don’t like to show such ads to family audience.

  • Syrana says:

    For my fashion blog i use Tribaladnetwork and get a good CPC rate.But i earn also from conversions.It is a good ad network that you can use for Adsense alternative.

  • Nice list thanks.
    Though Bidvertiser is not all that good, just an fyi.

  • Kavin Rose says:

    Can I use both google adsense & buysell simultaneously?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, you can.

      • Kavin Rose says:

        Thanks a lot for quick response !!!!!!!

  • Minhaj Uddin says:

    I was depressed after getting banned from Adsense. But This post is a savior! Thanks a lot.

  • Rupam Chakma Babu says:

    I tried chitika and many other adsense alternative but its pay very low if compared to adsense. So adsense is more better than other adnetwork.😄

  • Ricardo says:

    I have a file sharing site. Basically you upload and share the file.
    And I’m not accepted in google adsense or media.net

    any suggestion?

  • Miss Rosy says:

    I disagree with BidVertiser because I have already used BidVertiser in 2014 and the revenue result was so poor and I finally had to removed them from my site

  • Kenneth Black says:

    I read that media.net often doesn’t pay very well and they often cancel your account for no reason. Is that true?

  • Pronob says:

    I sign up for media.net and Infolinks after reading this article. Can I use both of them at the same time?

  • Gautam Nagraj says:

    Hello, brother, excellent write-up I have read the whole article, and it was helping. But according to you, which ad network works better for programming & coding blogs, well have programming blog and I am using Adsense, media.net and buysellads together but my monthly earnings are so less.

    Adsense gives me around $5-$6 daily, and media.net gives $1-$3 daily, and in buysellads, not a single Inventory has sold.

    I have also tried A/B testing, and all the tips and tricks shared by pro bloggers about AdSense earnings but fail. Even after getting 280000 pageviews monthly.

    So what do you think which network would be best from the above list, I have tried propeller ads, but that pop under ads are annoying.
    So please suggest me.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      If Ad networks like AdSense, Media.net etc has not worked for you, it’s high time to try Affiliate Marketing. I’ve written a complete guide on monetizing blog with affiliate marketing. I believe if you follow the guide properly, you can easily get started with affiliate marketing. Let me know if you need any other bits of help.

    • Joe says:

      I wish I was pulling that many views a month! I’d definitely look to affiliate marketing as an alternative. You should be able to monetize that traffic.

  • Imran Ahmed says:

    I’ve tried Media.net for a while, quite good results for South Asian countries. I think it performs better compared to Google for Asian countries.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

  • Uchchash says:

    Nothing could be the substitute of Google AdSense! But, if someone is getting disapproved again and again then there is no option without alternatives!
    And, your list is quite good!

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, there is no real alternative to AdSense. But Media.net is doing good.

  • Roy Fowler says:

    There are many ad networks that give good results.I use for my blog Tribaladnetwork.I earn a decent cpc rate and i get bonus revenue from conversions.If you have Tier 1 countries you can earn a good revenue from your traffic.

  • Saviour says:

    This is an in-depth article. I think you are born to teach. This helped me a lot.

    I will give my AdSense application another trial. If I win, I’ll buy you a drink.

    Please check out my site if you could see what I’m doing wrong. https://websiteghana.com.

    I’m suspecting the contents I took from elsewhere for some of the pages and the navigation. I’m not all that sure, though.

    I would be glad if you help me. Thanks.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It would be tough to get approved by AdSense with your current homepage where you are offering services. You need to make this page (https://websiteghana.com/blog/) as your homepage before applying for AdSense. AdSense approves blog site quickly.

      • Saviour says:

        Thank you so much. I’ll give it a try.

  • Pramod Kumar says:

    All the bloggers suggest Media.net is the best alternative to AdSense. But after trying approx 15 days, It is still not working me and after reading lots of reviews about media.net, I found it will only work for you if your main source of traffic from US, UK & Canada based countries.

  • David says:

    Thanks for this much information.
    i am also use-ing media.net its highly paid as compare to others.
    This is such a very good article..
    Thanks again……

  • Bapan Saha says:

    Thanks a lot for this kinds of informative article. I am using a blog site and i am using adsense for this blog site http://creativedesh.blogspot.com . Can i use adsense and amazon native ads both of them in my blog site ? Is there any problem will create for it or adsense will suspend my blog site?

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, you can use AdSense and Amazon Native Ads at the same time.

  • Chitika is the one of the worst ad network as I personally tried it on my blog. I think best adsense alternative is media.net. they pay but well not like adsense.

  • coder says:

    In India my ranking will be

    1. Adsense
    2. Media.net
    3. Bidvertiser (but their ads are not secure, two time my website go di-index by google)
    4. Chitika

    Worst in India
    1. Infolinks (will show only facebook ads thats never pay)
    2. kontera

  • Adetoyeseh says:

    I Found This Post Helpful.

    I’m running a news blog (naijagugu.blogspot.com), and I have a very few daily impression. I’ve applied for Adsense three times and get disapproved. On my blog, I use to copy some image from Google to use for news. So, I don’t know where I am having the problem of getting disapproved always. Please, i want you to inspect my blog and tell me what I need to do.

  • Luckypatcher says:

    I have used many Google Adsense alternatives. According to me Propeller Ads media and Revenuehits are good. But they have spam ads.

  • Albert Pinto says:

    I think you should also include eLeavers and Studads advertisng networks.
    I am getting paid on each month.This month I got $527.

    • arvind gupta says:

      YES, I am also using these advertising networks for monetizing my website.
      ELeavers and StudAds are also the best Adsense Alternatives.
      I request to admin, also include these ad networks in the list.

    Thanks for sharing this great article with us. Google adsence is a great platform for making money online but it is not easy to all bloggers

  • Ismail says:

    I thinks whoopsmedia.com is really great as a very good alternate for AdSense.

  • Many thanks to provide such a list of Ad Network, AdSense is good but not the only one.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Glad I could help :)

  • Ap says:

    List provided is highly appreciable. I have started using Infolinks but don’t know why not getting results. If doesn’t works will again visit your article for more reference.

  • Sadman Rahman says:

    Propeller Ads will be the best alternative to Adsense.They also reduce the payout rate.So, it will be fine to give a try.

    • Ravi says:

      Propeller ads sucks, When you try to open something they will lead you somewhere else.Too much redirection

  • Vrisha Malan says:

    I have been using Adsense, but it takes ages to reach the threshold for a newbie like me. Would like to try out more options. Excellent list of the best Google Adsense alternatives. But I personally prefer to monetize the blog with Media.net and Mellowads those ad networks are great for small and low traffic blog. Even my website was not approved by google adsense.

    After reading this article I went ahead with the alternatives and got it approved. Later I got adsense approval too. I always google for information about making online money, and now end up at your article, it clears almost all of my doubts. Thanks for sharing such valuable information. I have one challenge and that’s the fact that I give up so easily. Immediately AdSense didn’t approve me easily, I lost interest in a blog that was already generating over 10k page views in a day.

    However, thanks for sharing your experienced list to get me back to the game. Great article as I have been struggling to get my adsense approved , So i would instead now try these out.​

  • Okey Ravi says:

    Google Adsense is always the best option, But you have to find alternatives when Adsense sucks you.Really strict terms and policies.
    I usually prefer Media.net and Infolinks to a good alternative to Adsense.

  • Dr Sangita says:

    Great article, you have covered almost all google adsense alternatives.

    I am a new blogger and have blog on health niche. At present i have low traffic.

    I want to apply for google adsense. Can you go through my blog and advise me some tips for approval?

    Also want to know other best alternative for my blog.

    Right now i have Amazon affiliate program on my blog, but that is also not working.

    My blog is havehealthylifestyle.blog


  • Tom says:

    Thank you for the great post! I see this as an ultimate guide for new blogger hunting for affiliate Advertisers. I am currently using viglink and I am happy with it. Seeing your detailed review I am planning to implement few. I have a quesions, can we use adsense and viglink together?

  • MBK says:

    First off I must thank you for this great article you had put together. I have been applying for adsense for over a year now and it has been frustrating me.
    I do not think that I lack content as they have been saying… It is flooded with articles and my articles, pictures are original.
    Can you please look it up and tell me where I must have unknowingly erred? My site is http://www.notionsreview.com.
    I will be very much grateful.
    Looking forward to your feedback.

  • Iak says:

    My one of the websites was penalized by Google few weeks ago, just because of using Adsterraa ds, Although I was using banner ad but not pop-under, Google penalized by saying that your some web pages are using Sneaky redirects and misleading visitors, After removing their Ads, I sent re-inclusion request to Google, now Google approved. Here I have mentioned some of my experience about Adsterraa https://goo.gl/RWhv53

  • Charles Tuke says:
