Google Adsense Alternatives - Smowtion
Difficulties with Google Adsense
There are lot of contextual advertising programs are available in the internet. Though there are lot of such programs available in the internet it is hard to find a good reliable contextual advertising agencies for web site publishers. I know there are few giants in this field. Google Adsense is the well known reliable contextual advertising program for web site publishers. But most of the web publishers struggling to get the approval from this giant. Though they got the approval they cannot last for long time because their publisher accounts will get banned for violations of Terms of Service. Few web site publishers who have more experience and knowledge with web site publishing will keep their publisher accounts without getting banned. Yes, we know Google Adsense has much more limitations according to their Program policies and they keep checking all the publisher’s web sites and activities to protect the advertisers. This is the case to getting banned or disapproved the Adsense account. For such people have to go with Adsense alternatives to make revenue from their web site or blog.
Smowtion to monetize your web content
Here I am talking about such an alternative program called Smowtion which is founded in 3rd November, 2008. With Smowtion for publishers you can make revenue from both CPM and CPC methods. But with even with Smowtion some web sites are not allowed to their program including pornography, adult or mature content sites, illegal sites, tobacco and alcohol related sites, warez, hacking sites and so on. Other fact is you have to have some content in your web site. But definitely there are less conditions than Google Adsense. Publishers normally get 60% revenue share while Smowtion keep 40%. You can also refer new members to Smowtion and can earn 10% of your referred members' revenues for 6 monthsand members who have registered from a referrer can earn 80% revenue shareinstead of normal revenue share of 60%. The most important fact is they always have ads to show in your web site because they do not only depend on their direct advertisers, they also partnered with other companies too which means they count each impression. Your web site(s) will be accepted within few hours or it may take up to few days. According to my personal experience my each web site was approved within 24 hours after I verified the site.
When we talk about their customer support for publishers, they have a great customer support. You can contact them via phone, live chat and ticket system. Additionally one Smowtionassign an account executive to each publisher. If we have any doubts, problems or suggestions, we can write, chat with or call our account executive. Actually I give a bonus mark for their customer support. I tried some other famous contextual advertising programs but they don’t have such a good support. Another very important fact is we can use Smowtion with our Google Adsense enabled web site. They clearly mentioned it in their web site that Smowtion is compatible with Google adsense. Smowtion has a simple clear dashboard with the stats. They make payouts for publishers monthly via PayPal, check or ATM. Another important thing is there will not be malware or related warnings for your web site with Smowtion. You can use pop up ads only if you want.
