The Biggest List Of Google Adsense Alternatives On The Net

Make money online

When it comes to online advertising Google Adsense, undoubtably is the leader. If you follow their guidelines and TOS you can make good money from Adsense. Most of the blogs and sites depend on Google Adsense for revenue. But not all webmasters and publishers are happy with Adsense and are constantly looking for alternate sources for revenue. Sometimes Google just bans a publisher account for click fraud or not adhering to their policy or take away their earnings citing invalid clicks. And no further explanations are given. As a publisher or a blogger you have to look for alternate revnue sources, even if you are holding an Adsense account. There are many ad programs that you can run along with Adsense ads.

Google will not release payments unless you reach the minimum payout of $100, which may take a small blogger or publisher ages to reach. Recent news about Adsense cutting payments to publishers are another concern for small publishers. There are other ad networks with much lower minimum payouts that they can try.

The Shortlist Update

After reviewing this hub recently, I decided that it will be such a waste of time to go through all the ad programs in the list. Below are the links to those ones that I have already reviewed and then some that I recommend.

  1. Chitika - I highly recommend this online advertising network from my personal experience.
  2. Amazon
  3. Auction Ads
  4. Black Label Ads
  5. BurstMedia
  6. Clicksor
  7. eBay
  8. Kontera
  9. ValidClick

Making money online

Many people have found success without using Adsense. John Chow made $23,448.59 in October, 2007 without a penny from Adsense. All of his earnings are from private ad sales, affiliate commissions, ReviewMe, Text Link Ads, Kontera, TTZ Media, subscriptions and ShoppingAds. Everton at Connected Internet made $15,179 during the same period out of which only $4,904 came from Google Adsense.

It might be intersting for bloggers from India to know that Thilak at TechBuzz made $3061.30 in April 2007 without using Adsense(this data is currently not available as the blog is revamped now). For the webmasters who are either not accepted into the AdSense program, or do not want to use Adsense ads, these Google Adsense alternatives will be worth having a look. The list contains more than 180 adsense alternative sources which contains everything from CPM, CPA, CPL, CPC, Shopping networks, Contextual ad programs and affiliate networks.

Entries with asterisk next to are already reviewed. Clicking on them will take you to the review page. Others in the list also will be reviewed and posted here soon. At present clicking on them will take you to the respective programs.

[If you run an ad network or affiliate network please add your company in the comments section, and I will add it to the list. Please do not post comments with affiliate links in them]

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on March 30, 2013:

Thank you very much for providing this information. Since I am new to online writing, I was a bit disillusioned after the disapproval of my adsense application, for reasons best known to google adsense. All my hubs are indexed, featured and getting pretty good traffic too. I can see a very long list here. Would you be kind enough to tell, which alternative to Google Adsense, I should go for?

Thanks again for sharing this useful hub!

John Francis Santos on November 05, 2012:

This is a great list for starters. Thanks.

Dale Anderson from The High Seas on October 02, 2012:

Excellent list. Thanks for doing the legwork!

new1 on February 26, 2012:

My adsense account has not yet been approved. I tried searching for an alternative solutions and found useful sites like adhitz, Kontera, chitika, infolinks and clicksor. I decided to use adhitz since it just generated my first penny and I am amazed with it. Check out my site to see adhitz in action:

snagerries from Singapore on February 21, 2012:

I believe that other than adsense, infolinks is the most reliable with a very high click rate. For me, its second to adsense.

BreezeAds PPC on February 11, 2012:

After my Google Adsense was banned .. I found BreezeAds(dot)com! Forget adnsense and sign up will make MORE, they give You 90% of what advertisers pay! on February 08, 2012:

I am using adbrite and it is good

Nandhu Gp from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala on January 26, 2012:

Thanks for the great information.Can you list some which are good for bloggers because we have low traffic.I have tried more than 30 advertising sites some don't work for me some rejects for low traffic.

saradiyal87 on December 21, 2011:

Chitika ads doesn't work properly on

unflattered on November 26, 2011:

Many of the sites are just for name sake, a better method would be publish those sites that matters and in which country

Rockstar on November 23, 2011:

Am using chitika but not yet made a penny in it from last week. You can check how chitika ads get dispalyed on

AdsenseGetBack on October 30, 2011:

Thank you for such a nice piece of information. I agree there are many alternatives to Adsense but they are alternatives, not substitute to Adsense.

I would prefer infolinks for forums.

Puva on October 27, 2011:

Please add bontyadds into your list.Ok.

dinesh on October 01, 2011:

yeah it is awesome

Ted on September 13, 2011:

Some are more product based. If you have sites focused on professional business services, which ones are best? Chitika is definitely for products. I thought Adknowledge was PPC only.

Wesman Todd Shaw from Kaufman, Texas on September 05, 2011:

What a very extensive list you have here! Great information. I hope to need it some day.

A bit happier now. on August 30, 2011:

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Just yesterday I received the dreaded "invalid clicks" email from google adsense - for what reason or how that would come about I'm uncertain since for the entire month of August I received 3 clicks over a total of 5 sites - none of which originated from me, by me, or at the request of me. A quick search of adsense alternatives brought me to this wonderful list of options I never knew existed. You've brought a ray of sunshine into this otherwise gloomy day!

Venture Boyz from Floating in the clouds on August 22, 2011:

awesome list! I really had no clue there were this many alternatives available. I need to start raking it in John Chow style! 23k a month? nice.. I will take 10% of that ha!

Anyways I am moving on. Right now I am looking at Adbrite as an alternative.

Babaji M P on December 18, 2010:

Speedyads Entireweb's Entire Scam !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had to wait for 30 days the earnings to be confirmed from "Locked Earnings" to "Verified Earnings".

After waiting for 1 months i became eligible for the payment.

I requested for the payment 2 months back.

Still i didn't receive the payment in my Paypal account.

I have sent them 3 emails for which i never even received a single response.

The first payment which is still not received is $119.00

The second payment in my account is $204.00

But the actual second payment is $270.00

I don't know how many months it will take for them (Speedy Ads - Entireweb) to send a payment.

I will post again if i receive a payment from them.

I'm thinking of discontinuing their ads !

They still didn't send me any payments.

Is it a Company or run by a Single Person ?????

Sarkari Naukri on December 18, 2010:

great list. i making 50% of adsense earning using kontera. the biggest advantage with kontera is you don't need to find extra space

Jeff M from Newington NH on November 08, 2010:

If it's ok I would like to recommend a new one to all my fellow Hubbers on here. It is called NetBat and it is just like Adsense except that the content is Celebrity Based. It is totally free and it just started last month but it is promoted by Commission Junction so I assume it is a quality program. You can join right through this link:

Mr. Showman on October 29, 2010:

This Was Really Great Info. Thanks

Chinemere onuekwusi on October 28, 2010:

Thanks SunSeven, I'm very happy that you omitted widgetbucks, those guys are a whole bunch of pretenders whose stock in trade is banning publishers account with no real reason after they've earned some substantial amount of money in their account. This is what I suffered in their hands. On the issue of plagiarism, it is becoming quite alarming and must be taken very serious. It is really painful after taking your time to create contents, and some cheap ass writer wants to steal your work and earn from it, depriving you of residual income that should come originally to you. Once again, thanks for this good and very useful list especially for those who got booted out of adsense. This would do

bbc news on October 24, 2010:

Google took away my adsense account today stating invalid & suspicious activty clicks, they gave no further explanation. i have only been blogging for 6 weeks, you would think they would give you some kind of warning.

i have signed up with AdBright but will look into others that I see on this great list ass I dont want to stop blogging. thank you

adorababy from Syracuse, NY on June 18, 2010:

Such a huge list. I did not know Google had so much competition. I think it's time we need to try the others as well.

Ian Gertler on June 13, 2010:

Website publishers of all sizes are doing their best to diversify their revenue sources, so "Google AdSense alternatives" has become an active topic these days. This extensive list of resources to evaluate and consider is great ... and throwing another one in the mix called AdBull.

Cursor Marketing was founded by some of the leaders that helped to build the pay-per-click industry and focuses on better monetizing online advertising for mainstream media/publishing companies (AKA - the bigger guys). Along the way, the team realized how important this was for website publishers of all sizes and launched a new division called AdBull (

AdBull takes advantage of the patented efforts with cursor-based messaging and advertising with "cursor ads," but incorporates contextual relevance based on the content - regardless if they're huge like Huffington Post, Mashable or The New York Times or a small local site.

There are many compelling reasons for utilizing cursor ads, such as:

+ Approximately 98% of ALL users look at their cursor when they go to a site.

+ A user’s cursor and eye are engaged 84% of the time!

+ The upcoming announcement about AdBull beta customers finding cursor ads to surpass the results of both in-text & pay-per-click ad programs!

This isn't a promotion, but rather an additional resource for people to make money from their online publishing efforts. AdBull (and cursor ads from Cursor Marketing) provides a completely "additive" source of revenue for publishers. Since they don't require "real estate" on the site, they can work along with the other forms of advertising that the publishers have incorporated - whether it's Google AdSense or other forms like in-text and display ads.

For more information, please check out since there's nothing to lose by checking it out. It would be worthwhile for people to add AdBull to these alternative lists. Contact me with any questions. There's a beta launch promotion for a limited time - if interested, readers of this site can use the ISGLEADS promotion code.

Either way, good luck to all of you in monetizing your website publishing efforts.

geraldinegerongay from Los Angeles, CA on June 11, 2010:

I am currently using Adbrite on my other sites. The key here is to have as many pages as you can to get higher revenue but not as high as adsense. I did receive a check from them.

vivek on June 05, 2010:

thanks for the huge list,you have done a lot of research into it

DowntroddenInDC from Houston, TX on June 03, 2010:

Very nice list, I'll have to check those out!

I have been lokking for some kind of advertising to use since adsense won't let me do anything about advertising on a solar screen and solar shade site. This site also has retractable awnings but I am glad to find a new way to monetize solar shade screens.

Great article and comprehensive list!

ratnaveera from Cumbum on April 30, 2010:

Dear Sunseven, Thanks a lot for this Great Hub! Indeed this is a great collection of AdSense alternatives. But, many people are saying that no one in the Internet can be compared with AdSense. However, so many number of alternatives in this site will be helpful for other people who do not have their AdSense account.

Lance on April 25, 2010:

Going for Chitika now, they are interesting enough for me :)

Wondering if they are competitive enough in order to deliver me good quality ads so that the CTR gets higher..

Lamme on April 20, 2010:
