Best Google Adsense Alternatives In 2020 For Making Money Online

I completely agree that Google Adsense is the best and highest paying contextual advertising network in the market and the 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 an Adsense account is difficult. Even if Google approves you, then you know that they have 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.

For me, Affiliate Marketing works best, so that is the main reason why I have put affiliate marketing at the 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 Does Affiliate Marketing Work

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

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 over 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.

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:

BuySellAds Review 2019

BuySellAds Aka “BSA” is an advertising marketplace where you can make a huge amount of money by selling advertising 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 a 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).

Yahoo and Bing have collaborated to form this Contextual Ad network, which is known as Media.net. It works exactly the same way as Google Adsense i.e it shows advertisements related to blog content. The best thing about Media.net is that they provide dedicated account managers and you can customize the size, color, and type (banner or text) of advertisement to be shown on your blog. Media.net pays on a Net-30 basis and has a $100 minimum payout threshold. After reaching the minimum threshold, you can select PayPal or Wire transfer as a payment method.

Getting approved in Media.net is tough as right now they are invite-only i.e you need to send them invitation request and in addition, you also need a good amount of traffic from the USA, UK, and Canada. Click here to request an invite for Media.net publisher account.

  20. Hi Deepak,
    Thanks for putting light on the alternative to AdSense. Yes, you are right Google Adsense follows a strict guideline and with any single break, your account will be penalized. I would like to add a point that the best option to earn from your website is through Affiliate marketing and it is the trending way to the monetising site. In the Affiliate site, there is a need to select a niche in such a way that it has less competition and it has the ability to rank easily on google and can give you higher returns.
