Top 5 Alternatives To Google Adsense That Pays
This ads network is the latest issue of discussion in the blogosphere, it’s owned by Google’s long term competitor; Yahoo Inc. From study, it’s observed that they’ve got some steady advertisers on their network as they serve a well-targeted ad. To get accepted for into the network, you’re expected to have a considerable volume of traffic to your blog, most importantly visitors from the US, UK, Canada and other developed countries. They pay through cheque and bank transfers. Although the system is not well developed like that of Google AdSense, this ad network is probably on its way to displacing Google AdSense, as I have encountered their ads on “big and popular” blogs. The selection process was previously by invitation, but recently it’s a little bit easier to get in than it used to be.
Addynamo is another popular advertising network based in the United Kingdom, from data, most of their advertisers are from developing countries (India, Nigeria, South Africa, and other Africa and Asia countries) So if your blog receives a considerable volume of traffic from the aforementioned countries, it’s a good idea to sign up with addynamo. It’s very easy to get accepted into this network as there is no screening process; all you need to do is register and install the code on your blog. The CPC (cost per click) is low compared to Google AdSense, but it worth it, provided your traffic is big enough. The Minimum payout on this network is $50, and payment is made through PayPal or Bank Transfer ($100 threshold)
Info link offers a text link ads, I run their ads on one of my blog for two days, but later decided to remove the ads mainly because they have their links everywhere, which to me might be annoying to my visitors, based on the information I got from friends that make use of this ad network, I heard they pay as appropriate. They sign up process is also as easy as that of addynamo, the CPC a bit higher than that of Addynamo.
This is an advertising company that creates an avenue for advertisers and ads publisher to interact and negotiate on how ads can be placed on their blog, the price per blog post or banner ads depends on the blog PR, generally PR2 blog could make as low as $5 for a sponsored post, while PR3 could make as much as $100 per blog post. The number of advertiser on this network is low compared to the number of publishers. The only benefit that I can accord to this network is the ability to negotiate between publishers and advertisers.
You can make huge sum of money by offering ads space for sale on your blog, many bloggers do not explore this opportunity as expected, it’s quite rewarding provided your blog has the required PageRank and traffic. I have seen PR3 blog sells an ads space on their blog for as high as $100 per month! Most PR3 blog don’t make more than that from AdSense, but considering that you can offer as much ads space as you want, there is a chance of making more the a thousand dollar by selling numerous ads space on your blog.
With over three years of experience in blogging, I have realized that monetizing your blog should be one of your least problem as a blogger, getting people to visit your blog, creating the right authority for the blog and topping the search engine result page should be your uttermost priority. If all this is taken care of, the money would come in anyway, as there would be numerous requests for sponsored post on your blog.
