Reputable Alternatives to Google Adsense

Google Adsense is the best known pay per click advertisement service to publishers on the web. If you are dissatisfied with the Adsense service for whatever reason there are a number of reputable alternatives at your disposal. After some poking around the net, I have compiled the following list.

List of Reputable Google Adsense Alternatives :

AdBrite : Adbrite is the most well known alternative to Google Adsense. The Adbrite programs gives users the freedom to set up their own Ad space prices. Users also have the power to determine which advertisements to reject or approve for your blog and/or website. Adbrite issues payment by cheque. They are a trusted system that pays users on time. Expanding beyond text ads, Adbrite also has another system named Britepic. Britepic allows you to earn money from images.

Chitika: Chitika is another popular money making advertisement system. Chitika places advertisements that are relevant to your website or blog based on the content. The user interface allows for customization of the displayed advertisements. You are given options to edit the text color, URL color and/or border color to match your blog or site's style. Chitika also has a referral program, allowing you to earn additional revenue. Users will earn 10% of their referred users earnings.

Text Link Ads : Text Link Ads is a system used by many reputable websites. The platform gives publishers the ability to make more money by selling text-based ads on their blog or website. Text Link Ads is valued highly amongst both publishers and advertisers. They issue payments instantly on the 1st day of every month without fees.

Bidvertiser : Bidvertiser is a great pay per click Google Adsense alternative. Bidvertiser will always display the highest bidder inorder to maximize publishers revenue. The minimum payout limit is only $10 and they will issue payments via PayPal. Bidvertiser allows you to customize the layout of your ads, select appropriate channels for your site, choose keywords, and set geographic targeting.

Infolinks : Infolinks is a highly rated in-text advertisement programs. Cleary a different type of ad system than Google Adsene but it is a proven money maker for high traffic blogs and sites. Set up is easy and the system provide ads which are relevant to your content which equates to higher click through ratios. In-text ads will not fill your open space but they will monetize the content you already have.

Kontera : Kontera is an additional in-text advertising platform. Kontera also displays ads relevant to your content and which is a great non-intrusive ways to monetize your content. Kontera claims the best payout, premium ads with high CPC, and superior relevancy to your content with their patented semantic engine which analyzes and understands your websites content.

So, now the ball is in your court to choose your preferred method of monetizing your blog and/or website. I am interested to hear your experiences with any of these providers. Have you achieved success? Do you feel there is any benefit in using an advertisement platform other than the infamous Adsense?

Thanks for all this other information about pay per click advertisement service. As far as I understand it, these other services can not be used on Hubpages, so this Hub applies to blogs and other forums where the creator of the conent has more control over advertisers, correc?

That is correct. Hubpages may later implement other services, but for now, they are not available.

Chitika is one of the best besides adsense that I have used so far. I am also trying out the hubpages own program for revenue share. Let's see how it goes.

Great information. AdSense does let you filter ads you don't want to appear. So I still feel I have a good amount of control. But I'll look into some of these others to monetize other sites I have.
