Top 5 Best Alternative To Google ADsense

1. BuySellAds:
BuySellAds is one of the alternatives to Google Adsense. As soon as you submit your blog to BuySellAds, it will automatically fetch up your blog stats which includes PR, Alexa rank , Technorati,, Yahoo inbound links etc. For getting an approval for BuySellAds , your site should have a decent Traffic. As soon as your site gets an approval, you can setup an area on your blog for BuySellAds and wait for advertisers to bid.

2. Chitika:
Chitika is a CPC product oriented program. I like Chitika because of two reasons. Firstly, it always places relevant ads based on the content, which helps you to get more click. Secondly, you can edit text color, URL color, border color to blend with your blog format. You can also choose for their referral program, to earn extra income.

3. Infolinks:
Infolinks is one of the best In-line text ads programs, I won’t say its an alternative to Google adsense but It’s good for high traffic blog. You can see its performance in shoutmeloud monthly income report. It is easy to setup and provides relevant ads to your blog which helps you to increase the clicks. As it is an In-line text, so your visitors won’t get distracted because of advertisements. You can find a quick review about infolinks here.

4. Kontera:
Kontera is another In-line text program. Approval of your blog in kontera needs good page impression for your blog. Kontera has good customer support and pays on time. But I found that Kontera ads might slow down loading time of your blog.

5. Adbrite:
Adbrite allows you to setup your Ad space price on weekly basis, monthly basis etc. You have authority to choose or reject any advertisement for your blog; this helps you to choose advertisement relevant to your blog. You can even change the style of advertisement according to your blog format.

There are many more alternatives to Google adsense, but I added only 5 of these. Will love to know what do you think which one if best Google adsense alternative program?
