Most bloggers and content creators have had a hard time monetizing their blog using Google Adsense.
A lot of them have had Google disproved their sites several times. So they now feel helpless. They are now wishing that there are such a thing as Google Adsense alternatives.
If you are one of those you’ll want to grab a cup of coffee, sit down in a comfortable place and read this post.
In a few minutes, I’ll be reviewing a few Google Adsense alternatives that you can use to monetize your blog.
Without further talks let’s get started.
Media.net is one of the fast-growing contextual ads networks that enables content creators and bloggers to monetize their website or blog by showing ads.
This ad network has enough advertisers. These advertisers are those who usually advertise on bing and yahoo networks.
Media.net is looking out for big, medium, and small size bloggers. Irrespective of the size of your blog, you can monetise it with media.net so long as you have quality contents and the US, Uk, and Canadian base blog readers.
Media.net shows your readers ads related to your website content. For instance, if your website content is about mobile apps reviews, media.net will show your readers ads related to mobile apps and platforms where you can create some.
Media.net is free to use. Publishers are required to pay nothing. In other words, it’s free to join. They also provide publishers with a powerful dashboard to monitor and track their progress.
As a publisher, you can also change the style of ads so as to suit the design of your website.
Vibrant media is a recognised ads network. They operate on a cost per click model.
Vibrant media pays more attention to in-text advertising, but creators can also take advantage of their display ad inventory.
Vibrant media shows high-quality ads to your website visitors because they work with top brands.
To join this ad network there are certain things you will have to put in place and they are:
Your website or blog must be generating up to 500,000 page views per month.
Also, there are still a few things you should note:
Vibrant media doesn’t approve sites with adult, gambling, violent contents, and software piracy.
Vibrant media show high-quality ads to your audience. The ads they show to your website visitors are very much relevant to your website content. You can also use this as an ad network along with other ads networks like Google AdSense.
Hubpages is an online revenue sharing platform where publishers create an account, write an article, and submit it for review. Hubpages editor reviews it and approves it, if the article meets their standard.
Once your article is approved, advertisements are placed on those pages and revenue from those pages are shared between you and HubPages.
Clicksor is yet another contextual ads network that can serve as a Google AdSense alternative. The ad network was founded in 1999. It’s one of the oldest ads networks for both creators and advertisers.
Clicksor gives publishers the chance to make additional money by using a selection of clickable texts on their sites.
Before you can be eligible for this program you must have at least 50,000 monthly page views on your site. Also, at least 50% of your website traffic must come from the US, UK, and Canada.
Epom is an ad serving platform geared towards the needs of creators, advertisers, and ad networks. With Epom publishers can keep their readers engaged, get more value for the content they create, and generate ever-growing income.
Epom invests in publisher’s growth and develops value for every advertising space.
To get started with Epom you just need to follow a few steps:
Create a publisher account
Insert their code to any of the pages that you would like the ads to show.
Track and monitor your earnings and results on the dashboard.
Just like other contextual networks that I have talked about in this post, Adblade is one of the Google AdSense alternatives.
Adblade has more than 12,000 advertisers so they have what it takes to provide creators with the profitability they are looking for.
Before you can get accepted by Adblade your site must have at least 500,000 monthly page views.
Using any of the contextual ad networks that we have talked about in this post doesn’t stop you from using Google AdSense on your site. You can combine them to increase your revenue. But just be sure not to place the ads in a distracting way so you don’t annoy your audience.
Also, you don’t have to use all of the ad networks that we have discussed. Just pick one or two and use them to monetise your site.
If you found this post interesting, I would like you to share it with your friends.
If you have questions or good ad networks that you’re using that didn’t make it to this post drop it in the comment below I would like to hear them.
