Adsense Alternatives for Your Blog
Many people have started using Google’s AdSense programme to monetize their blogs, but some people find it too risky or simply does not meet their needs in terms of an ad programme.
But, thankfully, there are many AdSense alternatives to help you make money from your blog that attempt to address some of AdSense’s shortcomings. Here is a list of the most notable ones from the collection, along with a brief description of each.
(http://www.allfeeds.com/?action=publishers) is a website that allows you to subscribe to various feeds.
To place on your blog, AllFeeds has a large pool of online advertisers to choose from. It also has a variety of display formats from which to choose. Banners, buttons, XML feeds, DHTML pop-ups, and so on are examples of these. It also provides real-time reporting on the status of your ads. If you earn more than $25.00 per month, the site will send you a check, but if you don’t, your earnings will be carried over to the next month. Another intriguing feature of AllFeeds is that it integrates with Google AdSense, allowing you to maximise your AdSense earnings.
(http://www.marketbanker.com/mb/sell.php) is a website that allows you to sell your products.
MarketBanker gives you the one-of-a-kind opportunity to price your blog. It also gives you the option of accepting or rejecting any link that appears on your site (although AdSense itself does a very good job of this as well, with URL filters) There’s also a statistics section where you can check how well your website is performing. The ads are the same size as AdSense’s and are just as simple to set up. MarketBanker registration is also free.
(http://www.bidclix.com/PubTop.html) is a website where you can bid on books.
BidClix is unique in that it allows advertisers to compete for clicks on your blog, resulting in the highest possible profits for your blog pages. It also has a large pool of advertisers, ensuring that your site will be seen by a large number of people. It does, however, necessitate a higher level of polish in terms of site content than AdSense. Real-time statistics are available, as are most sites, and it’s very simple to get started with this service, but it’s also very flexible.
(http://www.realcontext.com/index.php?option=RealContext:+Contextual+Targeting+Engine) (http://www.realcontext.com/index.php?option=RealContext:+Contextual+Targeting+Engine) (http://www.realcontext.com
Artificial intelligence is used by RealContext to find the most relevant ads for your page. There’s one more feature that makes RealContext stand out. Keywords are chosen based on which of the previous choices paid off and which did not. That means there’s a continuous feedback loop in place to ensure you’re getting the most out of your ads. It also includes features such as ad blocking, child-safe filtering, and many others.
(http://adhearus.com/webmaster.php) is a website dedicated to advertising.
AdHearus is a contextual ad provider with a lot of features. Advertisements are targeted, just like AdSense, but it doesn’t stop there. You can choose from text ads, banners, rectangles, pop-ups, pop-unders, or skyscrapers for your ads. You can also display your own ads on your site and on other affiliate sites through rotation, making AdHearus a hybrid of traditional advertising technologies. There’s an extensive on-line real-time reporting feature, and, as with most such services, getting started is free and simple.
(http://www.affiliatesensor.com/) is a website that tracks affiliate marketing.
AffiliateSensor offers highly customizable ad blocks that you can create using an intuitive online interface. You’ll also get real-time clicks-by-domain, page, and referrer reporting. AffiliateSensor also integrates with Google AdSense via the google alternate ad url, allowing it to be used as a replacement for Google PSAs (Public Service Ads).
Kanoodle Bright Ads
(http://www.kanoodle.com/about/brightads.cool) (http://www.kanoodle.com/about/brightads.cool) (http://www.kanoodle.com/about/
Kanoodle’s service allows publishers to receive ads that are related to topics or segments rather than keyword-based ads. To ensure high-revenue-generating ads, the site manually groups publisher sites with advertisers. And, while we’re on the subject of revenue, the amount you receive is clearly a 50 percent share of the money Kanoodle receives for an advertiser.
(http://publisher.targetpoint.com) is a web-based publishing platform.
TargetPoint caters primarily to content creators. It gives you complete control over the look of your ads, as well as statistics on your site’s overall performance and increased revenue. It’s completely free to sign up, and you’ll get a guaranteed 60% cut of the total revenue. You can be paid through Paypal, bank checks, and (in most cases) wire transfers.
(http://www.clicksor.com) is a web-based search engine.
Clicksor will pay you up to 60% of the revenue generated by your website. You get something similar to AdSense in terms of targeted text ads and the ability to track your website’s revenue in real time. If you have earned more than $50, you can receive money via PayPal or a check every two weeks. If you haven’t earned enough, your earnings will be carried over to the next period.
