Google AdSense is a popular choice for people who want to make money online. You may already be thinking of giving it a shot.  But do you know you can try some other nice alternatives to make money regularly? Yes, you can try several affiliate programs, but the fact remains that you have to pick one carefully – the people running some of these networks change quickly, leaving you in a mess.

Before going any further, it’s worth mentioning that though affiliate advertising is a good way of making money online, it’s not a way to get rich quick; in fact, you will only earn a few dollars a month in the start.

In case you’re ready to take the plunge, here is the list of five popular affiliate programs for you to consider.

[box type=”spacer”]SocialSpark[/box]

To get you started, you will have to submit your blog to the network. They will review it and let you know once they approve it. After this, you will start receiving offers to publish positive reviews on your blog – you get your money as soon as you get the review published. You can make money using this network, but don’t expect big money – and whatever you earn will depend mainly on how many offers you get and how many hours you spend in writing.

[box type=”spacer”]Chitika[/box]

It’s not as popular as Google Adsense, but it has definitely managed to make a place of its own. You may find it a tad easier to use if you have already invested some time using Google’s Adsense. Ideally, it is designed for sites that enjoy a good amount of traffic; however, you may still be accepted if you don’t witness heavy traffic. You can get started by adding the code to your sidebar, but you can make your advertising campaign more effective by adding it to your posts – you can simply pick some of those blog posts that have done well in search engines and embed the code for better results.

[box type=”spacer”]MadAdsMedia[/box]

If you have tried a few other networks and seen no luck, you may want to try MadAdsMedia. In most other networks, you will need to have a site that enjoys a reasonably good amount of traffic. If that’s not the case, they will not approve you. The solution is to switch to MadAdsMedia where you get paid for impressions.

The basic difference is that this network pays you for page views, not for clicks like other networks. It is due to this very reason that you expect to make money even if your site sees a small trickle of traffic. The network makes use of a relay system, which means you will start getting payments once your page has 100 or 1000 page views. The only thing you should bear in mind is that though you will earn money, it will not be much, which is quite common with networks that pay you for page views or impressions.

[box type=”spacer”][/box]

Once again, this network is quite suitable for sites that don’t generate enough traffic and fail to qualify for other affiliate networks. However, you may need to have a website with a high PR – it means it should enjoy good rankings in search engine results pages. It is so because the basic idea behind the working of this network is to sell text links, and these links will carry weight only if they are from high PR websites.

Though it is important to have a good Alexa Rank and PageRank to use this network, it’s fairly simple to use once you get the green signal. Luckily, it’s possible to install a plug-in to your website that updates data stream and handles everything on its own. The availability of this plug-in saves you from installing sets of codes in your posts – it’s definitely a positive feature and reduces the amount of work you need to do.  The longer the links stay on your website, the higher the amount of money you receive. That’s another reason why sites with good – and relatively consistent – rankings are going to make more through this affiliate network.

[box type=”spacer”]AdKnowledge Affiliate[/box]

This is another reputable affiliate network for you to try. With a number of good offers available all the time, you are sure to make some money on a regular basis. It basically works on a premium CPA or Cost Per Action performance marketing system – the campaign monetization depends on its internal medial distribution groups. What you should bear in mind is that their memberships are usually limited to high quality, high volume publishing partners, which is the reason why they are able to bring campaigns with a potential of generation high revenue. Their customer support is also impeccable and you always receive payments on time.

    This is a great list for adding a little variety to a site, I have an arcade site, and having Adsense show the same ad three times on one page is a bit much.
    So far,
    I have tried Revenue Hits and Propeller. Propeller is nice, but I am concerned about the Revenue Hits ads. Despite having only a side slider, you could not click anywhere on my site without it clicking through to the ad, one of which created an infinite circle of pop-ups. Their slider actually got my site suspended on Adwords for suspected malware, so it might be good to be wary of them. Have you had any such problems?

    Google AdSense still stand out to be the best amongst advertisers but the fact remain getting into AdSense this day is becoming tougher every minutes even the chance of maintaining the account after approval is thin. Many bloggers don’t really depend on AdSense as their source of their online imcome despite the fact it is the best, rather they moved into affiliated and I believed these are what they first put into consideration before they finally take the decision about affilliated product they should join.

    Well, i have only used, Chitika from this List who pays very less CPM Rates. So, I only consider BuySellAds as the best Google Adsense Alternative.

    This is really great I have tried using Chitika and Social Spark and the problem is the amount you get is very very very less.

    Honestly saying there is no alternative for adsense.


  20. Parmar


    HEy but will these sites give us return as much we are getting from google adsences bcoz google add is more bigger than these. Although these have easy approval but yet the return matters.

  21. Stacey


    Thanks for the information. I will certainly try these alternatives. But most of all, I know I should still be working on the different ways to improve my site — work on quality content, clean design, and all that — because, at the end of the day, my earnings on affiliate programs will largely depend on the traffic that I generate for my site. More power to you!

    Well, these are legitimate affiliate alternatives but I guess the most secure affiliate to choose is Adsense. Google Adsense has establish it’s reputation and it’s an affiliate program that Google itself has made. And by that, we may freely assume that we are secure with Google Adsense. But, it’s a good thing to patch up these alternates. Thanks for the info.

    Most of them are new in blogging and their ultimate dream is to get approved by Google AdSense. But reality is quite harsh at time. In fact, it is not easy to get approved by Google AdSense. It is also not easy as well to earn money through Google AdSense even after getting approved by it.

    Thanks a lot for this great list brother,All the very best for your future success…
