I understand the pain when your Google AdSense account is not approved despite creating an honest and plagiarism free blog. It’s high time that you stop getting worries and break the shackles. It’s time that you should put on your learning shoes because today we are going to learn about best Google AdSense alternatives for new blogs.
Best Google AdSense alternatives – The Reality
Gone are the days when people used to believe that Google AdSense is the only way to earn money from advertising via a blog or a website. Yes, there was a time when this was true, but that was donkey years ago.
Though AdSense is still the best ad-Network around, the thing that has changed is that it is not the only Ad-Network around. While there are quite a few ad networks around but not all of them are reliable. They may cheat the publisher and may not pay the earnings.
Here are few of the best Google Adsense alternatives especially if you have a new website or are a new blogger. All of these have easy and quick approval as long as you meet the basic requirements.
As the name suggests PopAds is a pop ad network. It is very suitable for new publishers as they do not have any minimum traffic requirements. They do not have any restrictions in terms of the kind of content. Even the porn and illegal sites are approved by PopAds. The best thing about popAds is that your site gets instantly approved. It is easy to set up as well and can be quickly be integrated.
There are a few disadvantages as well. The main issue is that all the ads are pop ad formats and there are no banner ads. If you implement pop ads on your website then there is a possibility of your users disliking it and abandoning the site. Thus unless you don’t have long-term goals and are comfortable with pop-ups or pop-unders for your users then this may not be the best option for you.
|Pros Of PopAds||Cons Of PopAds|
|Good CPM rates||Payment via PayPal and Payoneer only|
|All types of sites are approved||No Banner Ads|
|Low minimum payout threshold ($5)||Pop ups may be displeasing for customers|
|100 % fill rate commitment|
Bidvertiser is one of the best AdSense alternatives available. Bidvertiser has a modus operandi which is a bit different than AdSense. Bidvertiser lets the highest bidding advertiser to advertise on your blog. The seeding takes some time so initially, the revenues may not look great but with the passage of time, it will earn high revenues for you. Bidvertiser also allows different types of ads that include Native Ads, Pop Under, Domain Redirect etc.
|Pros Of Bidvertiser||cons Of Bidvertiser|
|Instant Approval||At times payout rate is not high|
|Compatible with other networks||Contextual algorithm not 100% accurate|
|Multiple ad units on a page||Pop ups may be displeasing for customers|
|Minimum payout only 10$|
Propeller Ads is yet another suitable ad network for new blogger ads. These ads are also easy to set up and provides instant approval. To add to the advantage propeller ads also has a WordPress plugin which makes integration with WordPress sites that much easier. All that you need to do is create an ad unit and you could be earning up to $4 per 1000 impressions. In my opinion propeller ads is a great ad network as it provides a variety of formats. You may, however, want to disable a few formats like pop-unders which may be irritating for your readers.
|Pros Of Propeller Ads||Cons Of propeller Ads|
|Variety of ad formats||Some ad formats are not good for user experience|
|Easy integration||Few payment options|
|Wordpress plugin||High Minimum payout of $50|
|Revenue share upto 80%||No Banner ads|
Infolinks is my personal favorite It provides instant approval and is super easy to integrate. They have a variety of ad options but also allow you to pick the ones you want to show on your blog. The customization options keeps you in control of what your site looks like with ads. Infolinks shows based on users intent, which is driven by the search terms used by the reader. The innovative ad formats like InText, InFold, InTag & InFrame are just awesome.
|Pros Of Infolinks||Cons Of Infolinks|
|Variety of ad formats||Earnings not great like adsense|
|Easy approval||Low eCPM for Asian countries|
|Customization in your control|
Revenue hits is not a traditional ad network to be used as AdSense alternative. This network does not pay you for clicks or impressions. They will pay you for conversions that are driven by your site or blog. So more or less it works like a performance network. This may not sound lucrative but if your site has good traffic then the conversions can earn you huge revenues. Another advantage that revenue hits bring to you as a publisher is that it does not have any minimum traffic requirements.
|Pros Of Revenue Hits||Cons Of Revenue Hits|
|No minimum traffic required||No CPC campaigns|
|High CPA rates of upto $ 50||No CPM campaigns|
|Great customer support||Not good if your site has less traffic|
The above ad networks are a boon for new bloggers as AdSense continues to be stubborn in approvals. They don’t even tell you why your account was not approved for AdSense.
Apart from the above, there are a few other networks as well which can be used. Here are some of the examples. Chitika, PopCash, and RevContent
The above list may not be an exhaustive list as it is only about the top 5 in my opinion. I would love to hear from you if you have come across great networks to be used as AdSense alternatives.
