When it comes to making money from blog, Adsense is one of the best blog monetization program. I have already shared my Adsense earnings for 4 years, which will give you an idea, how much you can earn from Adsense. Creating an AdSense account, and getting approval is not very easy, and specially for a newbie blogger, it’s tough. The real problem comes in when Google bans your Google Adsense account. The only solution then is to start looking for some of the best Google Adsense alternatives.
Honestly, all the advertising sites mentioned here are not better than Google Adsense but depending upon your niche and site traffic, few AdSense alternative sites like Chitika, BuySellAds works better. Before, we move ahead, Adsense is a contextual ad networking and where all all Google adsense alternatives site mentioned below are not contxtual ad program. For example, BuySellads offers direct advertisement platform, and similarly Infolinks is In-text link program.
We have already talked about why adsense is the best advertisement program for bloggers and followed up with Google adsense in budding bloggers blog..
Getting Google Adsense approval is a dream for bloggers.

BuySellAds is one of the alternatives to Google Adsense. As soon as you submit your blog to BuySellAds, it will automatically fetch up your blog stats which includes PR, Alexa rank , Technorati, Del.Icio.us, Yahoo inbound links etc. For getting an approval for BuySellAds , your site should have a decent Traffic. As soon as your site gets an approval, you can setup an area on your blog for BuySellAds and wait for advertisers to bid.

Chitika is a CPC product oriented program. I like Chitika because of two reasons. Firstly, it always places relevant ads based on the content, which helps you to get more click. Secondly, you can edit text color, URL color, border color to blend with your blog format. You can also choose for their referral program, to earn extra income.
Infolinks is one of the best In-line text ads programs, I won’t say its an alternative to Google adsense but It’s good for high traffic blog. You can see its performance in shoutmeloud monthly income report. It is easy to setup and provides relevant ads to your blog which helps you to increase the clicks. As it is an In-line text, so your visitors won’t get distracted because of advertisements. You can find a quick review about infolinks here.
Kontera is another In-line text program. Approval of your blog in kontera needs good page impression for your blog. Kontera has good customer support and pays on time. But I found that Kontera ads might slow down loading time of your blog.
Kontera requires you to have minimum balance in your account as $50 to become eligible for payout. Here is the payout cycle of Kontera:
- October Earnings–Paid in January
- November Earnings–Paid in February
- December Earnings–Paid in March
- January Earnings–Paid in April
- February Earnings–Paid in May
- March Earnings–Paid in June
- April Earnings–Paid in July
- May Earnings–Paid in August
- June Earnings–Paid in September
- July Earnings–Paid in October
- August Earnings–Paid in November
- September Earnings–Paid in December
5. Adbrite: (Update: Adbrite shuts down. More update here)
Adbrite allows you to setup your Ad space price on weekly basis, monthly basis etc. You have authority to choose or reject any advertisement for your blog; this helps you to choose advertisement relevant to your blog. You can even change the style of advertisement according to your blog format.
These are just some of the close and best alternatives to Adsense. Though if your adsense is disabled, the best way to cover the Adsense earning is by keeping a mixture of two or more Ad network. For example, along with contextual ad use Infolinks or Viglink. You can also use Luminate to monetize your blog images as they use Adsense ads in the images. If you looking for contextual ads only, you can also try Bidvertisers, which is said to be working good for many bloggers.
Anyways, do let us know what other ad programs would you list as Google Adsense alternatives you will recommend to others? Which one you have used and which ad program worked for you the most?
