This post about Google adsense alternatives was supposed to be my next post after I published the one about how my account was banned but, due to some unexpected circumstances that occurred on the blog last time, I was unable to write it.
In case you don’t know, my Google adsense account was disabled some weeks ago for no good reason at all, it was just like you passing through a street and someone suddenly comes up and slaps you without giving you any good reason for his action, what will be your reaction to that? In my humble opinion, it’s either the person is mad or he is a bully.
That was exactly what Google is doing to many bloggers/publishers today. When I got that email from them, I wrote a post about it so that my readers will tell me what they think and probably, give me some good Google adsense alternatives. Now, just as I expected, that post raised some interesting discussion that made me to write more on it.
Most of you suggested that there are no other Google adsense alternatives out there, that they are still the best while, others gave me some really good substitutes and I finally went and conducted my own research too. I have no doubt however that Google is the best contextual advertising program out there but, during my research, I was able to come up with some Google adsense alternatives that is really interesting and is worth your trial.
Some of the companies I will mention here were suggested to me by you guys, while I dogged up the others myself. So, let’s stop the long story for now and get to the main business right? Let’s go.
Top 50 Google Adsense Alternatives.
Infolinks was the very first Google adsense alternative that was recommended to me when Google slapped me. It was my friend Babanature that first told me about them, I now went and created an account with them immediately and by the grace of God, they approved me.
The way infolinks works is simply by scanning your content in real-time and double underlining your most valuable keywords. This creates an intelligent, interactive atmosphere where users connect with relevant brand messages and click to learn more. Infolinks balances relevancy and payouts to keep your content clean and your earnings flowing. Maintain complete control over the look and feel of your site by fully customizing the appearance and volume of In-Text ads on your pages.
From my research, infolinks is a very good adsense alternative. Just like adsense, you can use them on all of your sites once they approve you but, the only different is that you will have to add the other sites one by one and they will check them to see if they meet up their requirements. I suggest you go through their site to learn more. Sign up with Infolinks Here

Kontera was another Google adsense alternative that my friend King Babajide told me about when I reached out to him. Babajide was also a victim of Google’s injustice. Kontera provides publishers with incremental advertising revenues from their mobile or PC web pages.
Kontera specializes in bringing highly relevant content and information from brands, and as a result their ads are often viewed as native ads that are least disruptive to the consumer experience. They provide content-powered display offerings, as well as their in-content product family (in-text and and in-image), and their unique suite of mobile monetization products.

Kontera’s Content Activation Platform powers the Content Syndication Program, which features previews of your content in likely to convert placements in mobile, web and social contexts.
If you’re still looking for good Google adsnese alternatives then, you must give Kontera a shot. I’ve heard a lot of good stuffs about them. Publishers benefit from additional exposure and incremental traffic without any additional effort. Sign up with them here
It was at Johnchow.com that I first heard of media.net last year. I quickly went and applied for their contextual advertising program and they rejected me, why? Because I was just starting then and they have some requirements your site must meet before you’re qualified. Since its founding, Media.net has constantly broken new ground in building innovative contextual advertising solutions. Media.net powers the Yahoo! Bing Network Contextual Ads program.
Media.net exclusively manages technology, business operations and relationships with respect to publishers worldwide for this program.

The way they do their own is that you’ll have to first request an invite from them, if they go through your site and found it worthy of running their program, they will now invite you.

Chitika was the very second contextual advertising network I signed up with while I was waiting for Google to approve my adsense account last year. But, to be frank with you, I stopped using them because I didn’t like the way they operate as of then. I hope they’ve improved now.
Chitika’s network of over 250,000 publishers leverage its targeting and optimization technology – a delicate blend of “Art + Science”- to deliver intent driven ads to the right user, at the right time and in the right place. High quality search-targeted, local and mobile ads are drawn from an extensive network of advertiser partners including; Yahoo!, Superpages, yellowbook and ServiceMagic, among others.
Chitika ads perform on their own but can also generate additional revenue when used alongside other ad types and services. Publishers of all sizes and demographics are increasing earnings with Chitika ads. Find out which type of Chitika account is right for you and get started today.

I have also heard about clicksor, but not much. Clicksor offers webmasters the opportunity to earn additional income by simply incorporating a selection of clickable text or displaying targeted contextual advertising banners on their websites or blogs. Place our ads along with other networks to get 100% fill rate for your site.

Other Google Adsense Alternatives
As you can see, they are many and more Google adsense alternatives out there that people don’t know. I was unable to explain all the other sites here because the post is already long so, I’ll advice you take your time to check them out. We should always have a substitute in whatever we’re doing in case of unforeseen circumstances.
Google can wake up one morning and send you the kind of email they sent me, and if that happens, you will always have something to fall back on.
Finally, to all those that Google has slapped too, don’t worry, we can always get back on track somehow, all we have to do is clean the slap and keep moving, don’t even ask him why because, he won’t tell you.
It might also interest you to know that they finally rejected my appeal.So, I will try the suggestion that my good friends Harleena Singh, Chadrack Irobogo and Emmanuel and some other people gave me. That is by using another email to create another adsense account.
Thanks for reading this far. Now, over to you. Have you heard of any/all the companies I mentioned here? Do you know of any other good Google adsense alternative that is good?
