If you’ve been making money online for awhile, or you’ve familiar with a few methods, then no doubt you’ve heard or tried or using Google AdSense. It’s Google’s ad revenue sharing program; You can use AdSense to make money and Google deliver the ads to your site. Various factors determine how much you can earn with AdSense, but that’s not what this article is about.
This article is about AdSense alternatives you can consider using. That said, I’ve compiled a brief list of 5 AdSense alternatives you might want to use in 2020. They include:
WordAds say they are partnered with over 30 ad suppliers, such as AppNexus and Google AdSense. They also are partnered with AOL Marketplace and Yahoo to name a few. The way it works is advertising partners compete with one another in order to get ads placed on a website, which is why (in WordAds own words) is why they can get the best revenue for ads for your site.
You do need to have a minimum amount of pageviews in order to be approved for WordAds. According to their FAQ page, you typically need at least a few thousand pageviews. This makes sense though because if you’re only getting a few hundred pageviews on a monthly basis, then you probably won’t earn anything.
Your website needs a minimum of 25,000 sessions before you qualify to use MediaVine, but it seems like it’s worth waiting and putting in the effort to gain that many sessions. Oh, and you can’t be in the bad books with Google AdSense, otherwise you won’t be able to use MediaVine.
I’ve never used MediaVine, yet, but you might still want to give it a try. I’ve done a bit of research and found a few promising reviews and they seem like they are one of the best, if not the best, alternative to Google AdSense.
InfoLinks is another AdSense alternative, and they’ve been around for over 10 years. They are reputable and there are currently over 100,000 publishers using them. The way it works is simple:
. You signup and wait for approval
. Paste the code provided to you
. Get paid when you reach the threshold
As of now, InfoLinks offers six different types of ads, which consist of:
Each type of ad is slightly different. For example, InArticle is used on page content, while InTag involves displaying ads that are relevant to the page’s (the page the ad shows up on) context.
4. Oko Ad Management
Oko is another ad network that has been around for a bit. At the time of this writing, it has been in business for over 16 years, as the company started out back in 1996. If you do a quick search for this Google AdSense alternative, it’s easy to see that there have been a lot of people who have made money. Sure, many people probably aren’t raking in six figure income from Oko alone, but it does look like there are a lot making alright cash with them.
Do bear in mind that there are a ton of factors that play a role in how much you can earn with Oko, or any AdSense alternative for that matter.
VigLink is a tad different than a lot of other ad networks because they figure out what commercial products have been mentioned in your content. Once they do that, VigLink links those products to places (advertisers) that are selling them. For example, if your article mentions “blender”, then VigLink may link the word “blender” to one of their advertiser’s websites that sell blenders or right to one of their blenders, if that makes sense.
Give Those 5 Alternatives A Try
I recommend doing additional research of each of the above. Read through their terms/conditions, find out if you can use there programs with similar ones. If so, then use 2-3 of them on your website and see which ones generate the best results.
I believe putting all your eggs into one basket isn’t a good idea. That’s why I recommend monetizing via other ways, asides from ads or with one specific ad program. That’s why I recommend using more than one ad program. Good luck if you give any of the above AdSense alternatives a try in 2020.
