Maybe you already have an Adsense account; you’re looking for alternatives because you’d like to keep your website income diversified, or because you’d like to add some additional income streams. Perhaps you’re looking for ways to earn more money from your ad space than you would be able to earn with Adsense. In our experience, this is not only possible, it’s likely with some of the alternatives we’re suggesting.

1. Adsterra

Adsterra is a slick advertising network with innovative ad formats and growing number of large brands using the platform. It’s a platform that I feel is the best Google Adsense alternative. It’s the fastest growing ad network and a well respected brand in the online advertising space.

Adsterra provides an excellent solutions for both publishers and advertisers who want to try something a little different and away from the grasps of Google.

2. Meridian at

meridian-adsense-alternative’s Meridian is a CPM (cost per mille) ad network that accepts publishers of any size. This network pays publishers per ad impression. When the network serves an ad to one of your visitors, you’ll get paid whether or not your website visitors clicks on the ad.

Meridian allows you to set a minimum price for your website’s ad space. However, there might be times when this network can’t fill all your ad impressions, so they allow you to set up what’s called “backfill.” This means you can give them instructions for an alternative ad to display. If you have a Google Adsense account, you could use Adsense as backfill, which means that Adsense ads will display on your site at times when Meridian isn’t able to fill your ad impressions. You can also backfill with other ads.

Payment Details:

  • They pay publishers on a net 30 basis.
  • The payment threshold is $25.00.
  • Payment is by check, PayPal, ACH, global ACH, eCheck, local bank transfer or international wire transfer.

3. Easy Monetizer at

Easy Monetizer isn’t an ad network. It’s a tool that allows you to automate affiliate linking so much that the process becomes as easy as monetizing through an ad network, which makes it a viable Adsense alternative.

Usually, when you monetize with affiliate marketing, you have to pick products, build links, and maintain them. This is time consuming, unlike the process of using ad networks. The appeal of an ad network is its ease of use; the networks allow you to just paste a bit of code into your website and begin monetizing.

Easy Monetizer allows you to get started monetizing just as easily; all you have to do is upload and enable a WordPress plugin on your blog or website. About three minutes is all the time it takes to set up Easy Monetizer. After setup, the tool will take over the chores of finding the best products to show your visitors, creating your affiliate links, placing the links where you want them in your blog posts, making sure the links don’t break, and making sure the prices displayed on your pages are all accurate.

All this is possible because the tool is powered by’s proprietary algorithms. You’re probably already aware that has created one of the most impressive and sophisticated product suggestion systems on earth. You can tap into this system, and profit from it, by enabling the Easy Monetizer module on your blog or website.

In our experience, Easy Monetizer converts well and is simple to use. The plugin makes it easy to monetize a variety of different blog topics, and it works for publishers of any size.

Amazon Associates Payment Details:

  • Direct deposit, with a $10.00 minimum payout (US Associates only)
  • Check, with a $15.00 fee and a $100.00 minimum payout (No $15.00 fee for international Associates.)
  • gift card

Easy Monetizer offers publishers a lucrative affiliate program that includes recurring commissions.

Easy Monetizer does have an upfront cost. However, the cost is minimal and reasonable considering what you get for the money you spend. If your websites earn consistent affiliate commissions, this tool is a much better deal than competing tools that take a percentage of your earnings. You won’t have to give up a percentage of your affiliate commissions to use Easy Monetizer. It would also cost you much more to hire virtual assistants, freelancers or employees to handle the same tasks.

4. OIO Publisher

OIO Publisher is a WordPress plugin that allows you to monetize your website by managing your own ads. It’s easy to use, although the setup process is lengthy. Once it’s set up, the plugin automates many aspects involved in the process of selling ads on your site. However, you will still have to recruit advertisers.

There is an OIO ad marketplace available to help you with advertiser recruitment. The marketplace may bring you advertisers from time to time, but you can’t count on it to fill up your ad space. You’ll have to make an effort to reach out to advertisers on your own.

If you’re a motivated salesperson, and your blog or website is attractive to advertisers, this tool offers many advantages that make it an excellent Adsense alternative. You receive upfront payment from advertisers, without having to wait for payouts. You won’t have to share any of your earnings with a network. You don’t risk getting banned or having your earnings reversed. You can negotiate directly with your advertisers, and form relationships with them.

There is an upfront cost for OIO Publisher. For motivated publishers, we think this tool is well worth the price considering the great value you get in exchange.

OIO Publisher also offers an affiliate program.

If you build ordinary links to qualifying products on your website, Viglink converts them into affiliate links you can earn money from. They maintain relationships with merchants.

My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.

  1. According to me, there are no other alternatives like adsense for good revenue. Adsense gives more than any other. I have experience with Infolinks on my website having many visits per day still there is not much revenue.

    Btw, thanks for your article.

  2. Thanks For the great information on Adsense Alternatives. I am using ADSTERRA , Eleavers and StudAds advertising network.
    I am getting paid each month. Thank you once again.

  3. Hi Jamie,
    Excellent list of the best Google Adsense alternatives. But I personally prefer to monetize the blog with and Mellowads those ad networks are great for small and low traffic blog. I have tested.
    However thanks for sharing your experienced list.

  4. Found something different here. All other blogs suggested is the best alternative. But don’t know about Meridian, Easy Monetizer & OIO Publisher. I’ll try them. Thanks for sharing valuable information.

    • Hi Pramod

      You’re right, is a great alternative to Google Adsense, but I would check out a few of the others as they all offer something different.

  5. is the best alternative for Google Adsense, CPC betwenn 0,10 $ – 0,90 $ per click are possible. But I am using both on my site and I don’t get any problems with Google.

  6. AdSense is the best, it always looking good, I have tried many ads network , is worse if you have no USA or Canada traffic, Infolinks is better for Indian Traffic also, Chittika is showing Google Ads but not recommend by me.

  7. I tried chitika and many other adsense alternative but its pay very low if compared to adsense. So adsense is more better than other adnetwork

  8. Hi Jamie,
    I feel that is more helpful in explaining for the new bloggers. I currently use yllix it is not on your list. At moment I am satisfied because they have really lot of options for placing ads and lot of different advertisers, but I am always ready for change if someone convince me that I will get more with some of above.
    Thanks, great article

  9. For me personally, I like to attract organic traffic rather than paid sources.
    It takes more time, but in the end you’ll reap the benefits, as its free traffic.

  10. Good post. But none of the ad network is not as good as adsense. adsense is totally different. But when it comes to alternatives, Media.Net is the best option to choose.

    • True, but sometime it’s good to mix things up and create additional revenue streams. Being too reliant on one network is not good. That’s why I always promote finding additional affiliate and ad income streams.

  11. I’m using adsterra on my website and it’s doing pretty well. Ok it’s not anywhere near the quantity of adsense, but I use it as it will be the best for nepali language news portal site

  12. Hey, Jamie. This is a great list of some other ad networks on the internet. I use and infolinks on my niche blogs and they working out really good, so far. Other than that, Amazon native shop is a good alternative if you’re targeting buyer intent keywords on the blog and having Tier1 traffic on blog.
    Keep the great work up!

  13. Great Post.

    Google adsense is the best adnetwork among all the ad networks. But its always good to have alternatives to google adsense. as google adsense is very strict, there is always a chance of ban of accounts for many reasons.

  14. I have been using Admush Network since 2016. And i haven’t seen such a good network in making more money from websites or even from facebook pages. Really this network is great.

  15. Hi,
    I am using Adsense from past 1year. I have a website having 300 views per day. But my revenue from the site is very low.
    So I am thinking of moving to another ad network. Please suggest me some nice ad network suitable for my website.
    You can check my website here:
    telugumovies dot eu

    Thanks in advance.

  16. I have tried all the above ads network.. Qadabra was the best among all but they have started the new scam of ignoring all Asian traffic.. I tried many other networks but finally I have found the best among all and it is the Propeller Ads network, which is basically a network from UK. It has been paying me $20-$30 per day for my 3000-4000 daily visitors, even-though I have just posted 3 ads on my site.
