Best Google Adsense Alternatives To Make More Money

Making money from a blog is the only reason for which many people start blogging. Most of these people are completely new to the blogosphere and they don’t exactly know how to make more and more money online. Their ultimate dream is to get approved by Google Adsense and make money with it.

But the true fact is that not everyone gets Google Adsense approval; and even if you are approved by Adsense, you won’t be making any money out of it.

If they see that their application is rejected by Google, they feel that they can’t make any money and most of them quit blogging. Good for them. Such people are not at all fit to be in the blogosphere. But there are some people who even after getting disapproved by Adsense work on their blog and build up different revenue streams.

Adsense Alternatives
I too was disapproved by Google Adsense, not once but many times. I got approved just recently, that’s about a year and half in the blogosphere. So even if you are not getting approved by Google Adsense, you need not worry as there are many other networks that you can use as Google Adsense alternatives. Some of them are so powerful that you can make even more money than you could have made with Adsense.

Note: Some of  the links below are my aff./referral link. It means that if you sign up via my link, I will get a certain commission on it. Your sign up will be completely free.

Best Google Adsense Alternatives

A note from my side before getting started. The Google Adsense alternatives does not comprise of CPC networks only. I don’t really like CPC networks so you will find a variety of different networks below that you can apply to and start making money.

So let’s get started with the best alternatives of Google Adsense.

#1. Chitika

Chitika is one of the best ad networks you can apply to. I don’t use it more on this blog, but I have used it on my previous blog. Before that I wasn’t quite fond of Chitika.

My blog wasn’t getting much traffic, so I new that I won’t be making much money with this but I thought it was worth a try. I applied, got approved and the next day I added the ad codes in my blog’s sidebar and as expected, the earnings were as good as nothing. So I removed the codes from the sidebar and added it to the best posts of my blog, the posts that were ranking in search engines and were bringing visitors every day.

And I saw that I was making more money than before. Of course the money wasn’t huge but was enough to pay the hosting bills and to buy 4-5 new domains each month. So I would surely consider it as one of the best alternatives of Google Adsense.


A blog that doesn’t get much traffic but is really good from the rankings point of view can generate money via selling text links.

If you have a blog that has a good Pagerank and Alexa rank, then you must apply for Text-Link-Ads to sell text links ads on your blog. Once you are approved, you just have to install a plugin they will provide and everything is automated. You only need to approve the text-link request and it will start appearing on your blog.

The advertisers there are too good. I didn’t sold many links, but the links I sold were live for about 3 months continous, giving me recurring income on autopilot. Great isn’t it?

Then why don’t you too get signed up with as they are the best with the best advertisers. There are other networks too worth joining but don’t miss out on this.

Sign Up with Text-Link-Ads

#3. SocialSpark

You might have heard a lot of buzz about this network. With lots of bloggers praising this network, it might be really good and worth a try.

You sign up with SocialSpark and then add your blogs in your account. Once your blog gets approved, you will start receiving opportunities of writing reviews on your blog. You get paid for every review published.

This is a nice network with many active advertisers so you will definitely make money from it. If you are more active on it then you can expect more money.

#4. MadAdsMedia

If you are not approved by Google Adsense, then you might not be fulfilling some of its criterion, or your blog might be getting low traffic. There may be any reason behind it.

So if you are not getting many clicks on your CPC ads, then why not monetize the impressions. We can use CPM networks on our blog to do that. Almost all the CPM networks have one big requirement, that your blog should have 1000s of visitors a day but this one is an exception. So I can’t miss out on this network from the list of Google Adsense alternatives. does not have any such high-traffic requirement. I got an approval with a blog getting 100 visits a day. Once I added the codes to my blog, I was averaging $1-$2 a day from it. However I used it only for a week or so as I sold that site. So couldn’t reach the threshold.

You can surely give it a try as its a great network and you will surely make money from it.

Sign Up for MadAdsMedia (non aff. link)

Other Google Adsense Alternatives Worth Joining:

SEOClerks : This is one of the best places to outsource any of your SEO task or order a gig. A Fiverr-like network but not only related to selling gigs. This can prove a real money generating machine if used properly. Just sign up and create a gig saying that you accept sponsored blog reviews on your blog. Set a proper price and see the orders coming. I have made about $200 from just 3 reviews in a month.

SocialLinkMart : This one is a new network where you don’t need a blog or anything like that. All you need is a heavy social media presence and following. If you are quite active on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus and enjoy a good following, then you can make money by sharing, tweeting articles. Obviously worth a try.

Clicksor : Another CPC network worth joining to maximize your earnings.

Do You know about any other alternatives of Google Adsense?

There was my list of the best Google Adsense alternatives which I had used with success and made a good amount of money with. If you have had some success from other networks as well and if I haven’t mentioned it here, you can share them with us via the comments below.

I would love to have your feedback and some more addition to the list of alternatives to Google Adsense.

Happy Making Money Blogging!!!

    Hi Arbaz,

    Nice collection of Ad networks.

    I tried Chitika for some time but it was utterly bad for my site. It might be because Chitika pays for US traffic and majority of my traffic were from India.

    I’d like to add one more network and I believe bloggers would love the services it offers. I’m using Teliad for some time and it has really wide range of opportunities for publishers. Teliad is not limited just to text links but awesome offers for blog posts and many other. You’ll list your different offers and advertisers will bid for your offers.

    Teliad is paying me regularly for more than a year now and it really can be a great source if you have good PageRanking and search ranking. I’ve written a post about teliad in my blog. You can find it there if interested to learn more.

      Hey Suresh,
      Glad you liked the list.

      Chitika pays for US traffic and for that your posts must be ranking in SERPs. I advised that if you add the codes in only the posts that get good amount of visitors from search engines then it can give you some good clicks and thus more money.

      I have heard a lot about Teliad but never joined it. Maybe I was too lazy to or I had joined a lot of networks. If you are saying that you are quite successful with Teliad then its surely worth a try. Let’s see what happens after I join it.

      Thanks for pointing it out.
      Cheers 🙂

    This is really interesting to know about Google AdSense, nice list of Google AdSense alternatives, unfortunately I haven’t use none of them yet, still Google AdSense and InfoLinks is the main source of income for me. BTW why you didn’t included Infolinks?

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Hey Ganesh,
      Glad you liked the list of Google Adsense alternatives.
      I have added the networks that made me money. I have used all the above networks and earned good amount of money, but that was not the case with Infolinks. I have used Infolinks for a very long time but couldn’t even reach a double figure. That’s why I didn’t feel like adding it in the list.

      Glad to see that you earn from Infolinks and that it is one of your primary sources of income. 🙂
      Thanks for your comment !!!

      Hey John,
      That’s a great gesture from your side. Thanks a lot for that.

      But John, I had one issue. I was not able to register myself as an affiliate with SLM. I entered the affiliate id but it said that it should contain the alpha-numeric characters. I had everything in the aff. id but then also nothing happened.

      Can u please look in to the matter.
      Thanks 🙂

    Great Article and some interesting lists of networks.

    I was surprised that Teliad wasn’t mentioned, as I make quite a bit of revenue from it.

    The great thing about this marketplace is, that it doesn’t only revolve around simple text links but also offers great marketing opporturnites for selling blog posts. My monthly revenue has been going up steadily since I started offering my sites there.

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Hi Andy,
      Thanks for the addition to the list.
      The reason that I haven’t mentioned Teliad is that I haven’t used it till now. All the networks mentioned above made me quite some money so I put only that are profitable.
      Now seeing that people are recommending Teliad, I should start using it.
      Thanks again mate.
      Cheers 🙂

    PostJoint is a new way to monetize a blog and a great alternative to Google Adsense. Basically you browse opportunities and offer to publish posts that you like for a fee. Every blog is reviewed for quality standards before being accepted and some bloggers are making as much as $600 p/m for very little effort.

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Hey Saleem,
      Thanks for another addition to the list.
      I came to know about PostJoint via a friend on social network. I didn’t use it so I haven’t mentioned it in the post. Looks promising.
      Thanks again for the comment.
      Cheers 🙂

    To be frank, it’s the first time I’m hearing about MadAdsMedia and SocialSparks. I think I should give it a try on them too.
    Thanks a lot for sharing it Arbaz.

  7. Saidur Rahman Reply

    Dear Arbaz , I am very much impressed of reading your article about Adsense alternative. One new ad publishing site about MadAdsMedia is new for me which i did not know earlier. I also did not get approved by adsense . For this reason, I got disappoint. But now your article give me inspiration about blogging and make money on internet. I will share your article with my blogging platform fans. THANKS A LOT.

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Hi Saidur,
      If you are not getting Adsense approval, then that’s not the end of the road.
      Till today, I haven’t even earned $1 with Adsense. I am making money by implementing various methods on my blog and I am happy and satisfied with that.
      Hope you will too make money without Adsense 🙂

    Do you have any personal suggestion about a good ad network if my our website have more then 10,000 page views and 3000+ unique visits per day. I signed up with Madadsmedia but there is no good response, there stats showing 300 to 400 impression / day, that is too funny…

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      With that awesome stats, you can go with many networks.
      Try out BuySellAds, Vibrant Media etc. on your blog 🙂

    There’s one AdSense alternative every publisher should use! It’s called Doubleclick AdExchange. I made so much money after implementing it to my site. I signed up via a company called MonetizeMore. You should too! I highly recommend it $$$$$!

    Great share bro!
    I applied for adsense, got approved and after 2-3 months got banned.
    Reason: Invalid click activity. I didn’t click on any of my ads, still they banned me.

    This happened twice in 5 months. I need to think of other earning alternatives now.

    Hi, You have written a very nice post. Google Adsense is the best for monetising on websites. I am using it for last 5-6 years. But now a days rates per click going down and we do not make as much we used too in the past. There are very good alternatives available. Bluehost , hostgator, Amazon ect offer affiliate programs which are great and if you have good traffic then it can make magic for you. Other competitors to adsense are Chitika, Kontera, Clicksor,infolinks are worth a try.

  20. Amrish Reply

    I have had a very good read through here and there is some fantastic information.
    I personally use Infolinks and Qadabra them seem to be doing a pretty good job although i have found sometimes Qadabra sometimes an annoying popup comes up on your screen about flash player has stopped working and your screen freezes for at least 15 seconds maybe just me i don’t know but all the same they seem pretty good so far.
