Adsense alternatives are becoming very popular for two reasons. Because its getting harder to get accepted to the Adsense program and also because Google banning Adsense accounts without giving any reason. To be accepted to Adsense program you need to have your own top level domain name. So it is impossible for Blogspot, WordPress hosted websites to get accepted to the program. Although Google took this decision to get rid of MFA(Made for Adsense) websites, some good legit bloggers also got affected from this. The good news is Adsense isn’t the only option out there for bloggers. There are some advertising networks who are not so strict about accepting publishers, and I will list down some of those Adsense alternatives so you can try your luck with them.
InfoLinks ( Best of Adsense Alternatives )
Another ad network that is relatively easy going about the publishers they choose. Infolinks serves you with in text advertising so you can use this service in combination with Google Adsense, making it one of the best Adsense alternatives for blogs. Basically what they do is find relevant keywords in your blog post and double underline them so they will be highlighted. When a visitor hovers over them a pop up will appear and you get paid when the visitor clicks them. This is a nice way to get some additional income while using Google Adsense. Join Infolinks for free or check out my complete InfoLinks review.
A very popular network with more than 100,000 registered sites. You don’t need to have your own domain name to get accepted as an publisher, so if your using blogger you can still get accepted. Payment is made via checks and the minimum payout level is 5$. By default the minimum payment level is set to 100$ so you have to change it to your preferred minimum payment. They provide you with full page ads, in line ads ( similar to Infolink ) , banner ads and text ads. Banner ads and text ads come in only five ad sized but they do cover the mostly used ones. A very good option if you are looking for an advertisement network very similar to Adsense. Join Adbrite for free.

There are lot more similar services you can use as an alternative to Adsense but I have used these services and they have performed well. Although all these services have good income potential Adsense it the one that has the most potential, simply because they have more advertisers and more competition between advertisers. The biggest drawback to join Adsense for most people is not having there own domain, having your own domain has lot more advantages that just getting accepted to Adsense, so I highly recommend you get your own domain name if you are serious about making money online.
