(Top 5) Best Adsense Alternatives for Advertiser & Publisher


Google Adsense alternatives is a major topic for new bloggers and advertisers in 2020.

Google Adsense has been a dominating ad delivery network in the online industry. By far it is also the most popular way to earn money online, it only takes a legit website and you are all set to get it monetized from Adsense.

But this article is not about Adsense, in this article we are going to have a look at the best Google Adsense alternatives available.

So before getting into the list, we will discuss some basic overview of the topic.

Why people need an Adsense Alternative?

There are some common problems that people face with Adsense approval and they go for its alternative. Some of those problems are mentioned below

1. Process of approval:- 

The most common problem with Google AdSense that most of the people face is to get approval and this might be the reason for you have landed here. 

Back in 2005 or 2010, it was really easy to get approval but as the web started getting competitive google has to make their approval process harder.

And now it is not easy for everyone to get approval. There are some basic requirements of google to be fulfilled then only you can get the approval. 

But most of the new bloggers and website owners struggle with those conditions of google.

2. Terms and conditions of Google:-

As I said earlier that in starting google Adsense’s approval policy was not so strict so as it’s policies to avoid frauds and scams.

But now even if you somehow manage to get the approval, it is not easy to sustain it. Because sometimes even if you are doing everything right on your part Google just deactivates your monetization.

And it is very hard to follow all its terms and conditions.

Okay, so these were the two major issues that people face with AdSense. Now let’s talk about its solution and head towards the list.

5 Best Google Adsense Alternatives

1. Media.net:-

Media.net is the biggest competitor of AdSense on the web. This contextual ad network run by Yahoo and Bing serves content based ads just like Adsense.

This network is powered by Yahoo and Bing so you can monetize your search traffic by Yahoo and Bing.

Currently, the Media.net approval process is invitation-based, here is the invitation code. If you have a decent no. of traffic on your website then you can easily get it approved.

2. PropellerAds:-

PropellerAds is an ad serving network with a variety of ad types to choose from like banner ads, push notifications, smart links, etc.

They also say it on their website that they have a vast base of users up to over 1 billion.

It has a very simple and hassle-free user interface which is very good for newbies to understand. Also, you don’t have to wait for long for the payouts from them as the minimum payout limit is $25.

3. Adsterra:-

Adsterra is a very versatile ad network launched in 2013, as it allows you not only monetize your web and mobile app traffic but the visitors on your social media profile as well.

That is the reason why within this short period they can gather over 8000 publishers on their platform. 

Their main focus is pop-under ads and it is their strength as well. One of the biggest advantages of Adsterra is that they provide a dedicated account manager. This makes ad placement hassle-free.

4. PopAds:-

PopAds is considered as the largest popup/pop under ad network. It is also one of the most popular ad networks these days. Most of the people are successfully using it as a Google Adsense Alternative.

Now you must be thinking if it is the largest popup/pop-under ad network then why I have not mentioned it in the third position? The reason behind this is that it is considered a bit spammy ad network.

Its placement can also irritate your user and they can bounce off from your website. Which in the long run will ultimately affect your Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?

5. Skimlinks:-

Skimlinks is also a great way to monetize your website traffic. It is a little different from other ad networks that I have mentioned above.

With the help of Skimlinks, you can convert regular links into affiliate links. So basically, in short, you can say that it is an affiliate ad network.

With this ad network, you can automate the affiliate marketing process for you. Also, it provides the affiliate links with the products that fit and suit your content. This way you can maximize your chances of getting the most out of your content.

There are 3 categories of compensation that they allow choosing from like Revenue Sharing/Pay Per Share, Cost Per Acquisition and Cost Per Click or Cost Per Mille.

The only drawback that I feel with this network is that it takes 25% commission on each of your conversion.


So these were some of the legit and best Google Adsense alternatives that you can use on your website for monetization. But remember that each network has its pros and cons. So I will advise you to get assured from your side as well before using any of them.
