Top 15 Google Adsense Alternatives

Google adsense is a pain in the behind lately. They banned a lot of publishers for different reasons but mostly  invalid clicks. I was one of the unlucky one. I never received any e mail notification and was wondering what was my offense.  Appealing  is an option but seems useless. A lot of applicants  are turned down  many times. Being approved takes a lot of effort and re appeals until you give up and got pissed off.

So if you are banned  or turned down by Adsense, worry not. It is time to move on and get an alternative ads. There are a lot of legit sites to choose from, some pay less than Adsense but worth trying for. And besides being approved in some of the sites are not as painstaking as Adsense.

 1. Bidtraffic / Yes Click

When people search and click the link you will get paid. If you get click on the top paying keywords then you will definitely earn. Some high paying key words gives you $5 per click which is way better than adsense. They provide the maximum return from your traffic in comparison to other PPC. This stems from the simple fact that, for over six years now, they've worked tirelessly and diligently in the Pay-Per Click market. And since that time they've achieved both lasting and exclusive partnerships with numerous feed providers--providers that have supplied them with the highest rates in the industry.

2.  Chitika

Chitika is a prtetty good option if you are banned at adsense.Adsense and Chitika  are basically the same in many ways  but Chitika is  not so cruel as Adsense. Chitika ads are known in the industry for the ability to perform unlike any other by delivering the right ad to the right user at the right time - helping advertisers and publishers achieve the highest possible ROI. Aside from the PPC, you can earn extra income from referrals who join Chitika using our ID. Payments can be made ​​via PayPal.

As a publisher's content changes, AdBull automatically matches the most appropriate ads from its inventory of advertisers and advertiser feeds.

AdBull's automated advertiser interface, advertisers, like publishers stated above, have the ability to sign up and choose relevant keywords that would describe their products/services. Once approved, their ads are then served directly to their most relevant audience.

AdBull ads are only displayed for a few seconds after a user arrives... at a time when 98% of Internet users have their eyes tied to their cursor.

  1. I dont like clicksor. Their ads are very intrusive

  2. Nice work bro. Great alternatives. No more licking of google's feet for approval after banishment.

  3. I'm a membet of some of these sites but haven't really been into them...will spend some time learning and tweaking my accounts....thanks for the other platforms you listed, will ne really helpful!

  4. I find this post very informative :)

  5. Thanks for these info, I am one of the unlucky publisher of Adsense.. banned several times na! Will try Chitika.. thanks again!

  6. great! will check these ad service.
    would like to add "text link ads"..=)

  7. I have tried chitika and adbrite but deleted them both. Chitika It is difficult to generate clicks with the links they are providing it's too general. for adbrite i find their ads too bold, too bright, too flashy..

  8. I have tried chitika before but the earnings is too slow they only give compensation to US traffic so I stop, while clicksor I just don't like it, madaming links sa blog.

  9. I am very happy there are alternatives to adsense. Affiliate ads are so important. Thank you for doing the work and helping us find alternatives!

  10. cool! these are great alternatives! :) I love nuffnang! :)

  11. among all of these advertisers...i liked the most is adsense,only coz of its analytics.i tried to get an account for buysell,but they didn't approved my request.Technoratimedia Publishers( is another good one to choose..but bit difficult to get an account.Tess you try to add some Ad-publishers for coding-websites in your article.

  12. HI, this is Pamela from Infolinks. We're a fantastic alternative to AdSense, as we offer the highest payouts in the industry. We provide relevant In-Text ads as well as several other products designed to monetize your site!

    Check us out at

    Happy blogging!
    Pamela :)

  13. I've heard of the others but this is the first time I've heard of Bidtraffic. Might just try it out.

    I still have my Adsense account but everyday I live in fear of unknowingly doing something wrong. Sure, those who are fond of scolding always preach "read the TOS" but the TOS isn't always easy to interpret or understand...

    Anyway, thanks for sharing this.

  14. Never tried these alternatives except for nuffnang. Are those alternatives safe? :)

  15. i am now using clicksor in one blog and other use smowtion and alternate them with adsense using an alternate ad plugin.. i do not have idea on some of this.. thanks for sharing will try and get to know all you mentioned.

  16. Thanks for this. Are this alternatives legit?

  17. Some of this was never heard but you should put adhitz too

  18. Wow! This is nice. I have actually no idea on these. Haha! Wil do my own research in the next coming days.

  19. Nice compilation, there Ma'am Tess though if you provided the links (with you as referrer in the sites you joined), it would've been nice too.

    I've always wanted to try these sites and earn, pero somehow, I don't think I don't wanna see them on my blog :(

  20. Had nuffnang and my adsense is pending approval, it's nice to know that there's a lot of alternatives for ads. Thanks!

  21. nice post and blog sir visit me too for Pc tutorials and others

  22. My first account with Adsense was banned so I made another one. But now, I'm beginning to like Nuffnang.

  23. This doesn't apply to me yet cuz I don't have ads in my blog. But this is a good reference when I finally put up another blog which I can earn from. :)

  24. Thanks! This is really helpful for starters like me :)

  25. mabaga kita sa chitika:( will try to regisTER @ infolink maganda review jan

  26. Wow, thank you so much for this! I've been banned twice from adsense and I don't even know how it happened. I'm sure I didn't do anything wrong naman. But I guess it's really time to move on, so I'll definitely try some of these :)

  27. nice. thanks for sharing this. Nuffnang and Adsense lang ang alam ko. madami naman pala! yayy :)

  28. I already have Nuffnang. I used to have Infolinks on my old blog but it did not earn any cent. I wonder if it will work on my new blog. I am also thinking if I should add Bidvertiser but I already have Google Adsense. i am afraid Google may ban my site if I do.

  29. I hate too many ads. If you have so many ads they distract readers and force them to shy away from your page, so I only have nuffnang and infolinks.

  30. I have Nuffnang and Google Adsense, though I haven't really gotten anything from them. Will definitely try these other alternatives. Thanks for sharing.

  31. This is very useful info. Never heard of most of these programs so I will give the no.1 a go! 5USD for every click seems too high.

  32. To be honest, most of what is listed above are strangers to my blog and even to my blog does not earn a revenue though except adsense na ang liit blog earns from sponsored and paid post that I receive through mails. I guess I will have to try these...Thanks a lot!

  33. Great list you have here although, in my years of blogging, I haven't got any cashout yet LOL!

  34. Thanks for this post Ms. Tess :)
    I already bookmarked it and signed up

  35. I have tried most of them and as an assessment, Adsense, Infolinks and Nuffnang are my faves.

  36. thanks for this... alternatives bloggers can check

  37. I'm interested to know, which one(s) would you actually recommend. Request lang, I hope you can also feature a list of good affiliate marketing programs. TIA.

  38. As far as I've tried. Nothing compares to google adsense though.

  39. thanks for the list maam tess, there's a lot of adsense alternative pa pla :)

  40. im using infolink along with adsense, dami pa palang iba pang alternatives. thanks for the info for each. alin po ba ang di conflict sa adsense? Yahweh bless.

  41. Out of the 15 sites you listed, I'm only familiar with one and that is Nuffnang. Just like the others, as much as I want to earn more, I'd rather use one advertiser space on my blog. Maybe someday? And if I do, i will go back to this list and learn :D

  42. adsense is the best but they are very strict talaga.. so now Nuffnang meron ako, and other private ads

  43. Thanks for this info...Will try some of them! Thanks again!

  44. Is Bidtraffic for US sites only? They'd ask for your USA TaxID/SSN. Can someone help?

  45. no,they are not for US residence only.You can add any number to SSN. just don't leave it blank .ai have SSN but I did not put it there .i just added any number.

  46. here is how you signed up at bid traffic

  47. I like Pay Per Post.. Is their any Pay Per Post ads?

    JayRyan'sBlog was inviting you to be a Guest Post Author..

    Thank you so much.


  48. Tanong lng po ma'am Tess. Kapag na banned ang aking accound sa google adsense mawawala rn ba ang aking account sa gopogle? isa lng kasi ang gamit ko na google account. same lng ang account ko sa Blogger at Google ads..

    Please advice me..


  49. I am using an affiliate network that pays PPC as well.

  50. In this competitive world of online business a sound knowledge of SEO(Search Engine Optimization) gives the companies a definite edge over its rivals.I just started with Adsense.But ia m not satisfied with the revenue ia m genrating... can you suggeest me some SEO approches how i can improve my revenue?

  51. I heard lots of rants be it online or not about this Google Adsense thing. Good news is that there are lots of alternatives and some are kind of way better I surmise.

  52. I haven't tried anything yet but this is a good post. I am considering right now these alternatives that I once thought didn't exist. Thanks!

  53. It's good that we bloggers have other options to consider. For a while back, I thought all we had were Adsense and Nuffnang. I never realized there are other opportunities out there. Thanks for sharing :)

  54. thanks for this info..haven't joined any of this..i tried to try opening chikita but my pc security says,

    "This web page at has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences."

    will see if i will join any of this..thanks for sharing!

  55. good resource for me! thanks! - bookmarking this!

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

  57. Good post on google adsense alternatives, many people are getting banned from google adsense a/c, for them it is a great relief. They can try a few of the above available alternatives.

  58. Very nice write up.

    I am not sure but I notice that getting accepted to infolinks program has become very hard nowadays. I applied and got rejected many times. I don't have any idea what's missing or lacking in my blog that I deserve such rejection. If only I could remember my old infolinks account, I had never bothered to apply with a new account again. I now use Chitika. It's great but I wish they had image ad available.

  59. im using google adsence..but iwant to find alternative for my website..thanks for sharing..

  60. let me try some of these if I wont get approved for adsense

  61. I used this 3 ads (adsense, chitika, and infolinks) you can use it all together. without banning or suspended in their TOS.

  62. I really dislike Infolinks. I think the way it selects keywords to underline is intrusive and does the article no favors as the post then becomes "ugly".

  63. Nice list you have here and I think I'm gonna try some of those instead of adsense alone.

  64. yes google adsense banned me also..

  65. I tried all of those adsense alternative but still adsense give me more moolah

  66. Adbrite already closed its doors :)

    Ive already tried most of those in the list and nothing beats adsense/

  67. Nice list and I also had those in my blog but still I'm earning cents for now.

  68. nice list , i found some good alternatives.
    sindhi mp3 songs

  69. Thank's for information n' Thank's for sharing !!!

  70. Very helpful. But do you think their ads is good for our blog? I mean, does it contains malware or something that may harm our readers? I am new to blogging and my blog is still on its 3rd month. but I am looking forward to join this adsense alternative.

  71. Thanks a lot, I managed to get some on my blog
    that was very helpful

  72. Nice article but I think adsense is still the best ad network in the world. Visit my blog
