Getting an approved Adsense account for a new blog these days can really be frustrating, especially for new entrants into the blogosphere. 🙁
You would for sure agree with me that solely depending on Adsense in blog monetizing is tantamount to throwing all your precious eggs into one basket, as a little error on your path would definitely lead to a ban.
If you wish to go into full-time blogging and of course wish to make money online, you should start considering a multiple stream of earning money with your blog. In this article, I’ll give you 5 Adsense Alternatives of which I have tried myself and was paid into either my Paypal, Payoneer MasterCard, through cheque or Bank-Wire Transfer. Here is an amazing list below.
Top 5 Adsense Alternatives
Infolinks is a text based advertising network that requires you to simply place their code on your website, then keywords would be highlighted, and once clicked by your visitors, you get paid for it. Their Payout is just $50. You can get paid through PayPal or via Pioneer MasterCard. I’ve been paid severally from this network using my Pioneer MasterCard. Though I stopped using it on this blog because it increases my bounce rate, I still use it on my other blogs.
Chitika is another great Adsense alternative I use on my blogs, excepting this blog. Their payout threshold for Paypal is just $10, and if you choose Cheque as your payout option, your payout threshold would be $50. This is a great Adsense alternative, you can join by Clicking Here.
This a new Ad publishing and advertising network that accepts any website, even with the lowest form of traffic. One thing that amazes me about them is, I have not heard of someone been placed on a ban by this network. They have a Paid Tweet program where you get paid to tweet an Advert. I tried them out on my Tech Forum, and it turned out to be great as I was payed.
This is an Ad publishing network owned by Yahoo, Bing and Microsoft, and tends to pose a great threat to Adsense. Their payout is $100 just like Adsense and they pay via Cheque and Paypal. I haven’t tried them yet, cos I applied sometime last year, but was declined acceptance. I think sometime in the nearest future, I would re-submit an application.
Update 17th March 2015: I was accepted into the Media.net program around May 2013 and have been receiving payments directly into my Nigerian bank account. I’m even expecting my next payment on the 1st of next month.
I decided to try a little affiliate marketing stuff for my smartphone reviews on this blog. As a result, I linked from some smartphone specs reviews I made to Konga.com and was able to record sales. In about one month from just a few posts, I reached payout and was payed directly into my bank account. You can read the full post on how I was payed by Konga. You too might want to try them out.
These are all great Adsense Alternative programs that help make your blogging career a success by paying you for clicks and impressions of adverts placed on your blog. You too can make money blogging using these programs.
