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, 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.

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?

  1. Hi Deepak

    You have listed the best ever list of Googe Adsense alternatives which I really searching for. I am going to try the Infolinks as it is the Text advertising network. Thanks again for sharing the wonderful post.

  2. It’s really difficult to earn online money by ads unless we behave in professional ways. For part time blogger like me it’s really tough. I have scripted Chitika and Infolinks but very low revenues. Thanking to your list, i will try some more of these.

  3. I just don’t understand why you suggest in-text ads like infolinks and kontera next to Adsense. Though those are still under CPC program, but I think it’s better to suggest programs similar to Adsense like that of Bidvertiser and Adbrite. After all, Adsense is still the best when it comes to CPC. Anyway, thanks for this post.

  4. Now I am using Google Adsense in my Blog, but I am also trying Kontera in my blog as from various blog I got informed that Kontera is growing better than Infolinks.What do you suggest.

  5. Hi Deepak

    Thanks , There was a time when after getting adsense account banned Some blogger started thinking that Journey is ended here but Now days we have many alternative so if one who does not has adsense account can also earn money online.

  6. That’s a really good post. Found your blog from your interview in ViralBlogTips.
    Some months before, I was using Bidvertiser to monetize my blog. The traffic was above average and it’s good that Bivertiser didn’t take at all to start showing ads on my blog. The only problem I had is that it was not showing earnings above $0.00. I had more than 1500 daily visitors and impressions were pretty high but there we no valid clicks shown. To check whether its working or not, the next day I told my friends to click on the ads. Sadly, even when they clicked ( all of them from US), the earnings were still $0.00 and the click were the same i.e. 0. So I don’t think Bidvertiser is good enough to be mentioned in this post.
    And this is my honest opinion. I found Bidvertiser on many top 10 Adsense alternatives but felt like commenting on your blog since this one has a bigger reach.

  7. You putted your best in this post which is very informative and helpful also and it can make understand people that how to play with Google Adsense. Well nice and readable post it was.

  8. Hi Deepak Brother,
    This fantastic Google Adsense Alternatives, List I like It’s My first Visit Your Blog i am Really Inspire, Keep Up The Good Work Thanks a lot For Update,
    Have a Nice Day Ahead,

  9. Hey Deepak,

    That’s a great list of adsense alternatives. Affiliate marketing is definitely the best among all of them. But it needs to be done in the right way to maximize profit. Personally I have used many of these, and VigLink has proven to be more effective till now.

    Thanks for the share. Take care and have a great day ahead 🙂

  10. Infolink is one of the best choice and any great option for me to Adsense and I will prescribe Infolinks. You have composed a flawless audit about adsense option and I get it is presently an ideal opportunity to investigate them once more.

  11. I have personally tried chitika on one of my website and that was too ebarrasing.. ads were like adult one i know its strange but i would prefer adsense as its trusted.. anyways good info thanks

  12. Actually, I have tried all of them as Google Alternatives. But The truth is that no one compete with Adsense at all. For smaller blogs I would recommend:
    Amazon Display ads : one of LOW CPM ad network.
    Bidvertisor and Clicksor: serve low-quality ads, so your site may be flagged as malicious.
    Viglink, Skimlinks, Infolinks, Chitika: Low rates. Infolinks makes blogs look too busy when they use the inframe and infold ads.

    RevenueHits is a SPAM ad networks. You can check it’s reputation on the internet.

    Adversal, Adsoptimal, Media[.]net are still BEST high paying Google Adsense alternatives for our blog. They have better designs, which provides better result next to AdSense.

    From my experience, I would like to say, don’t limit yourself to any one AD NETWORK. Try other ad networks and see which one work the best with your micro-niche blog. Since you are trying micro-niche blog, try monetizing with affiliate products. I would recommend to you & for others to try more network, and figure out which one is working best for their blog type.

  13. Hi Deepak,

    I am doing blogging for 3 months and got Google Adsense approval, but has disapproved my blog.

    I do not understand why has not approved my blog..?? Can you tell me Why..??

  14. That is a killer list of advertising alternatives. I am going to bookmark it on my list of pages worth linking to so I can check it back again later in case I write a similar post. I’ve tried infolinks before and at the same time as adsense and they both worked great. Infolinks is a pretty decent advertisement platform for a person getting a good amount of traffic. I really like it.

  15. Hi,
    Good list of Google Adsense alternatives, I have a bad luck when it comes to Google Adsense.
    and i want to know which one is best for “programming blogs”
    Thanks for sharing alternatives of Google list.

  16. Great Post. Google adsense is the best adnetwork among all the ad networks. But its always good to have alternatives to google adsense. as google adsense is very strict, there is always a chance of ban of accounts for many reasons.

    I have recently started a new site which is informationsbook & already tried some of the ad networks. I will try some of the above networks as well. I think Revenue hits is the best alternative for adsense.

    Anyways thanks again for the post. appreciations for your hard work.

  17. This is a great list of some other ad networks on the internet. I use and infolinks on my niche blogs and they working out really good, so far. Other than that, Amazon native shop is a good alternative if you’re targeting buyer intent keywords on the blog and having Tier1 traffic on blog.
    Keep the great work up!

  18. Great article, thanks. We have niche websites, not blogs. Were denied by info links, and conversant because of low traffic. I get 2000 a day but split on a dozen of domains. We tried most of the ones you mention with mixed results.

  20. Hello Deepak, These are very famous alternatives for Google Adsense, You said it right at one that When once your account gets banned by google, it is pretty hard again. Instead one must go for one of these alternatives for earning. I have tried Chitika and now I am trying my hands on affiliate marketing. It is really a useful information. Thank you.

  21. I ran ad-sense for 8 years on one website, but since I sold that I am now looking for alternatives on my new site. Judging by comments, ad-sense might still be the best and most reliable payer? I still haven’t decided, but might end up giving Chitika a go, which I never heard of before until just today. Thanks.

  22. Thanks for sharing such a nice post. Adsense is most popular to generate huge revenue because they pay high CPC. When we compare with CPC then there is no Alternatives of Google Adsense. Otherwise infolinks is best one. I also like to recommend and Chitika if anyone have high traffic to their blog.

  23. Hi Dear Deepak Panwar,

    I heard only 2 or three alternatives of google-adsense but through your post i am able to know other many different best alternatives of google adsense. Specially affiliate marketing, direct advertising.sell and buy adds are great alternatives of google adsenses.

    In your post Numbering is the point which distinguish your post from other blogger and great use of word is fond in your paragraphs, I totally impressed with your writing way and style..

  24. This is definitely a huge life of Adsense alternatives. I believe being a good affiliate marketer is the best alternative to anything else.

    Thank you for your efforts. Keep sharing more.

  25. I’m very much happy to try any alternative. Google Adsense has high click through rate but its not sufficient That’s why I like to try a new one. I got some ideas from your site. Thank You

  26. Hi Deepak,
    I feel that is more helpful in explaining for the new bloggers. I currently use yllix it is not on your list. At moment I am satisfied because they have really lot of options for placing ads and lot of different advertisers, but I am always ready for change if someone convince me that I will get more with some of above.
    Thanks, great article

  27. Hi
    Good list of Google Adsense alternatives, I have a bad luck when it comes to Google Adsense. Though I have applied for Adversal.
    Thanks for sharing alternatives of Google list.

  28. Nice post, but I personally feel that has now emerged as one of the best google adsense alternative because their RPM is good and mostly importantly their ads are mostly CPM ads which means you don’t require any one to click on ads to make money you just have to show the impression of ad and you are going to make the money which is not the case with google adsense
