Best Google Adsense Alternatives In 2019 For Making Money Online

I completely agree that Google Adsense is the best and highest paying contextual advertising network in the market and majority of webmasters are monetizing their website via running Google AdSense ads. But, you also know that getting approved in Google Adsense isn’t that easy especially if you are a newcomer in the blogosphere.

A lot of people even say that getting a loan of $10,000 is easy ,but getting Adsense account is difficult. Even if Google approve you, then you know that they’ve very strict guidelines and if you break any rule by mistake, chances are they will either disable ad serving on your website or will simply ban your Adsense account. Remember, once you get banned, just forget Adsense. They’ll never unban you. In addition, there are many people who aren’t satisfied with their Adsense earnings.

But this does not mean you can’t monetize your website without Google AdSense. You need to understand that AdSense is not the end of the world, there are many AdSense alternatives through which you can make good money online and maybe even more than with so-called Google AdSense.

Now let’s have a look at Top 12  Best Google Adsense Alternatives for making money online.

For me, Affiliate Marketing works best, so that is the main reason why I have put affiliate marketing at number one position in “AdSense Alternatives list”.

In affiliate Marketing, you just need to promote vendor(say XYZ) product or service and when someone (say Mr. A) makes a purchase using your affiliate id, then your vendor will pay you a commission. Commission amount depends on  what type of product you are promoting. For instance, commission for Premium WordPress Plugins will be less than Web hosting and WordPress Themes.

How Affiliate Marketing Works?

As long as you are following right tactics, no one can stop you from becoming successful in affiliate marketing. Some of the tactics which you must follow for becoming successful in affiliate marketing are listed below:

  • Choose the Right Affiliate
  • Promote Relevant Products
  • Build Email List
  • Use Banners and write Honest Reviews about Products
  • Keep Calm and Be Patient

Direct Advertising is yet another popular Google AdSense alternative. Basically, in this advertising method, companies directly contact you or you contact them for their product reviews, sponsorship or advertising. As there is a direct contact between you and advertiser, so you don’t have to give any commission to third-party such as Google AdSense, Media.net and BuySellAds.

Furthermore, you can set your own terms and conditions and also have full control on your ads. Typically it is seen that blogs which get direct advertisers constantly are seen as an authority in the niche and also build long-term relationships with advertisers.

Direct advertising, Google Adsense alternatives, direct advertising for bloggers,make money online without google adsense

Now, before you approach advertisers directly make sure that you have good traffic, contact us and dedicated advertising page on your blog.

Your advertisement page should have the following information:

  • Why should they advertise on your blog?
  • Available Ad slots with price details and mode of payment
  • Google analytics page views and unique visitor’s p/m.
  • Google PageRank,AlexaRank and Domain Authority
  • Information about your audience and niche.
  • Social media profiles

BuySellAds Aka “BSA” is an advertising marketplace where you can make a huge amount of money by selling advertisement space on your website to advertisers directly. They offer various kind of advertisement units such as text, image, image+ text, RSS feed and sponsored tweets. Basically, they charge 25% commission on every advertisement i.e. if you will sell advertisement for $500 then your account will be credited by $400 and rest $100 will go to BuySellAds. BuySellAds pays on a Net-15 basis and has a $50 minimum payout threshold. You can select PayPal, check or Wire transfer as payment method.

Honestly speaking you can make more money on BSA than Google Adsense. Now you must be thinking if we can make more money on BuySellAds then Google, then why it is not the best or widely used online advertising network? The catch is that Getting approved in BSA is very difficult as you need to have quality website with great content, web design, good Alexa rank(less than 20k), PageRank and last, but not the least you need high traffic (50k Unique visits per month).

Really high quality article and information you have shared. If you are having a quality blog then you can earn a lot without adsense..

Hammo

I have to agree it’s well written.

I hate being attached to the Google Mothership which is ‘Adsense’. These are some great alternatives, although ranking them by ROI might be more useful.

Perhaps in your next update.

The one I see a lot on blogs is ‘Shareaholic’

Hi Deepak, This is a great list of different monetization opportunities a blogger can dip his feet on. I’m also using some of these networks. Affiliate networking and Direct Advertising is without any doubt the best method if you know how to make it work for you. For buySellAds it really requires your blog to be a high traffic one. I tried a couple of times but still not getting approval 🙁 About Infolinks, Chitikka and Kontera, they are good but does not earn as Adsense do. Anyway if you have blog with visitors from US, hope they’ll work for… Read more »

Hi Deepak,
I completely agree with you. Adsense should not be the end of the world when it comes to earning online. Sometimes even people that engage in “best practices” get banned by Google. This is often frustrating!

Thankfully, we have alternatives we can stick with! The list is helpful for many who never get to know what to do after adsense ban!

I shared this comment in kingged.com where this post was found.

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.

Hi buddy,

I am impressed by your blog. Adsense is the easy way to earn money if one gets approved and have good amount of visitors.

The alternatives of Adsense sure does land huge money, but one needs to work dedicately for it. Easy way is a no way.

I have tried most of it, and as per experience, one needs to try each of them for a time period and check what works best for them and then stick to it.

Nice post.

P.S. I found your post on Kingged and left the same comment over there too.

Have a great day.

Hello Deepak, Indeed an informative post you have written. I have no doubt that Google Adsense is the best to monetize your Blog. But its not so easy to get the adsense approval. Therefore you should find proper alternative of adsense. Here you have discussed several option. I think we can use Infolink or Media.Net to monetize our Blog. Affiliate Programme is one the way to earn more money. But in this case try to get more traffic at your Blog/website. Chitika is also a good ad network but it is only useful if your site/blog have enough visitor from… Read more »

I have tried almost all the above-listed alternatives to Adsense considering that my site cannot be approved by our brothers at Google. From what learnt in their forums, my blog domain name is suspicious.

I still cannot earn from any alternative. Maybe my problem is the lack of enough traffic. I’m currently running infolinks and yahoo ads and there is nothing to show for it.

I’m yet to understand how BuySellAds work.

Thanks for this exhaustive list.

How grateful am I reading this article. I never get an approval with Google adsense sense eversince I start blogging, I don’t know the reason. I think its because of my very poor traffic an average of 300 visit per day.

I’m with media.net now and I earn very thin. for a year I reap $7.50. Poor isn’t it. I don’t know what I’ve done wrong with my blog.

I had added Infolinks ads long time back, but fed up of that just because of low traffic on my blog. Now I am planning to get Google Adsense, the only think I need is a flow of traffic.

Secondly, I am very much interested in doing Affiliate marketing and will definitely do it in future. Its a good way of earning money.

I have tried yahoo(media.net) , chitika and infolinks but adsense is best. They didn’t pay as much as Adsense does. I think adsense is the father of all publisher network.

It seems like you have not tried them all. I have tried Chitika and infolink they are good to earn $2-3 daily if you have 5K readers per day and among 50% of them are from US> Revenueads are the most competitive to adsense. Cpc is good and you will earn a lot only if you have an arsenal of readers from US and UK.

I have tried atmost 3 of them including infolinks and chitika. Although, i am much eager to know about affliate marketing couldn’t get a startup!

This is the only feature that i am getting high payout. This ad network covers all geo and your site will be approved very fast.… Read more »
