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.

Honestly speaking you can make more money on BSA than Google Adsense.

  1. A ad network is good for some people and for other not.I try many ad networks this year a nd i find that give me good result.I get paid for clicks and conversions and minium payment is $50.

  2. Hi,

    Very well written and explained article on alternatives to Google Adsense. I have earned quite some amount through Adsense. Now, been looking for other sources. This article has helped me a lot. I have heard about RevenueHits, I will try it on firstly.

    Thanks for sharing the information. 🙂

  3. Hey Deepak above all the points which you explained very systematic way.
    The information you shared about Advertisement page in second point i.e Direct Advertising is very useful for us.thanks

  4. Actually, I have tried all of them as Google Alternatives. But The truth is that no one competes with Adsense at all. For smaller blogs I would like to share my own experience about:
    1. Amazon Display ads: one of LOW CPM ad network.
    2. Bidvertisor and Clicksor: serve low-quality ads, so your site may be flagged as malicious.
    3. Viglink, Skimlinks, Infolinks, Chitika: Low rates. Infolinks makes blogs look too busy when they use the iframe and infold ads.

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

    5. 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 own blog monetizing 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.

  5. Hi,

    These are few site only which you have told and these are the best one. I think to get yahoo ads is the most difficult even difficult than GOOGLE ads.

    You have to make the site upto the mark so that you can get approval faster and easier.

    * Content is the king

    * Blog traffic is Important

    * Navigation is important thing while getting approval

    * Contact Us | Privacy | About Us are few important things

    I liked your website design and speed of the response… Keep it up

  16. Hey Deepak, just read your article on shoutmeloud and found your blog & this post. Am agreed with your post some how on the base of direct advertisement, because in direct advert blogger can earn more than adsense. On other hand most of cases adsense is on the top.

  17. I was also searching for the Adsence tutorial and landed on the helpful page. Thanks for sharing this precise information. Sometime, thanks can’t be enough by saying just Thanks.

  18. Affiliate marketing is the best monetization tool if you are able to use it effectively. When talking about ad networks, I prefer Adversal next to Google AdSense. It is reliable and needs less threshold to get the payment.

  19. I’m a newbie myself I tried to subscribe with Google Adsense, already rejected, my webpage was to new. The maybe have a point, but I was looking for some alternatives. Luckely I found your post, very interesting! Thanks for the tips and insights, best regards, Robert

  20. Apart from number 1 and 2, I find it hard to imagine there is any other ad network that can pay better than Google AdSense. I will be checking them out though.
    By the way direct advertising is not an easy thing and certainly not recommended if you don’t get a lot of visitors and page views.

  21. I think is the best Google Adsense Alternative.
    It works really great.It also pays more than other adnetwork.Though No adnetwork can replace Google Adsense.But we can go for the alternatives when we are not getting adsense.
    Thanks for your post.

  22. Affiliate marketing off course is a good alternative but that depends upon the niche of blog. For your niche affiliate marketing sounds to be the best alternative. But new bloggers like me can get involved into direct advertising.

  23. I have tried Yahoo(, Chitika and info links but Adsense is best. They didn’t pay as much as Adsense does. I think Adsense is the father of all publisher network.

  24. Great article… to know about some Google Adsense Alternatives. I haired about some of them & most of peoples are using but even most of people like Google Adsense after having many Alternatives.

    These Alternatives are best for those don’t have Google Adsense as well as don’t have sufficient Google Adsense experience !

  25. I agree that Qadabra is definetly the best alternative that I have tried. With all the time I had to wait to get approved with Adsense, it was nice to finally find a platform that I could start earning from right away. I have had a nice income so far with Qadabra.

  26. Affiliate marketing off course is a good alternative but that depends upon the niche of blog. For your niche affiliate marketing sounds to be the best alternative. But new bloggers like me can get involved into direct advertising.

  27. Thank you for introducing Media.Net to me. I needed something that is going to work well with Google Adsense. I’ve also heard great thing things about RevenueHits but never had the opportunity to try it. I agree that affiliate marketing is the #1 alternative, but I believe ads can do good as well. Thanks again for your phenomenal work.

  28. Many adsense alternates are there in the market. But nobody doesn’t know about them clearly. Like this post everybody know about Adsense alternates. Very good post. Thank you.
