Google Adsense Alternatives for Bloggers

Got Rejected or banned in Adsesne? Sad but don’t you worry. In this article, I have covered some of the best Google Adsense Alternatives which you can use to make money even failed to get adsesne account or banned.

No doubt, Adsense is one of the most preferred choices of bloggers when it comes to making money by monetizing their blog contents and traffic. In fact, when I start this blog, I had only Adsense in my mind to earn some money online:) Also, it’s one of the best and high paying CPC advertising network. There are many advertising programs are available on the net, but no one got success over it yet.

That is why bloggers should know about adsense if they want to generate some real money. Adsense is number one in the list of monetizing networks due to their high paying C.P.C (cost per click) rates as I mentioned above. It is another reason that’s why blog owners struggle to get approval for Adsense account.

But, here is the problem. Adsense policies and rules for getting permission to place their ads on your site are very strict. So, many bloggers often fail to approve their account. [By the way, I was failed two times and on the third apply, boom I accepted. But Often blogger successfully approves their website and got publisher account.

After getting the access to place ads, being banned is another reason and a big problem in adsesne. They even don’t notify you why and which ToS you violated. All the hard earned money also reversed to advertisers.

It’s happened many times, and I have seen many bloggers on the internet who claims that their account got banned without any reason. So you should know some Best Google Adsense Alternatives if unluckily your Adsense account got banned and to keep earning recurring income.

Best Google Adsense Alternatives to Make Money via Blogs
Following are the some best alternatives to adsense that pay good CPC and CPM rates to earn a healthy income.

1. BuySellAds: Buysellads was founded in 2008 by Tod Garland takes first place in the list of best adsense alternatives. Personally, I recommend this fast growing network if your site has massive traffic(at least 50,000 UV’s per month). You can offer different ad slots on your site at your desired price for 30 days. You can also earn money by twitting and RSS feeds through Buysellads. BSA impression based ad network and you don’t need click for generating revenue like adsense.



If your website is getting enough traffic, then this one is an excellent Adsense alternative for you. Many bloggers are making huge income from this network even some sites which have only 40k traffic are making around 400$ per month easily. If you have adsense account also, you can use both of these networks for monetizing. And you don’t need to register in any other advertising program because from these two platforms you can earn lots of money.

2. Media.net: This program Media.net is powered by Yahoo Bing Network. To work with this program, the majority of your site visitors must come from US, UK, and Canada. Also, your blog must have quality content written in English, Good traffic, and good site design.




The most impressive thing about this network is after approval you will get an account manager, who’ll help you understanding and guide about ads placing as well as recommend necessary things to do for making maximum revenue.

3. Tribal Fusion: Tribal Fusion is also an excellent Google adsense alternative to earn good revenue from your blog. Tribal fusion rules are also very strict like adsense; your site must have unique contents and huge page views per month to get approval for this program.




If you want to get registered your site on this network, then your site must have 5000 visits per day and minimum 100,000 page views per month. Your website should have quality & unique contents, provides better user experience and must update on regular basis. You can earn upto 55% advertisements revenue from tribal fusion.

4. Chitika: means “in a snap” and it is another CPC based paying network like adsense. Chitika was founded in 2003 by co-founders Venkat Kolluri and Alden DoRosarioand. Anyone can easily approve their account with this network if he/she is not violating any term of service. Also, their ToS are not much strict than compared to BSA and Adsense.




You can block advertisements by entering keywords in your Chitika account that not suits your blog content or niche. They have won many awards in the last 11 serving years. In my experience, they pay very lowest CPC rates and it is almost impossible to earn significant income.

The minimum payout is 10$ for PayPal and 50$ for wire transfer. This monetizing program is best for beginner’s or starters due to the lowest limit of payout because making $100 as a newbie is not an easy job. But, definitely you can easily make $10, Am I right?

5. Infolinks: (In-Text-Ads) found in 2007 by Davidovich and Oren Dobronsky, is known as best advertising network in the category of text-based ads because their ad rates are much higher than anyone else. Infolinks ads will be shown within your site content/blog post and specific keywords linked with advertisements that are picked by advertisers for monetizing.




You can use different ad styles such as In-frame, In-search, In-tag and In-text on your site to maximize earning. If you want to make big with this network, then use high paying keywords in your blog posts.

6. Clicksor: Clicksor is an online contextual monetizing program which you can use as adsense alternative. It was founded in 1999. Contextual advertising network shows ads that are most related to the publisher site contents. You can earn with clicksor using CPC (Cost per Click), CPM (Cost per thousand impressions) ads, etc. When your earned money reaches to $50, they will transfer it via Paypal to your account or through cheque. If you refer someone, you will get 20% commission from clicksor as a reward.




So, these are some best Google adsense alternatives that you can sue in case of not having an adsense account. If you search a query in Google with this keyword “adsense alternative” you will see a huge list of monetizing networks but be aware some networks are just a scam they will not give you a single penny. So, before starting work with any network check it reputation, user reviews and network history.

How To Work on UpWork

Ready to take your business to the next level? In this article, you’ll find ideas to help you achieve greater success on Upwork. When clients have a great experience working with you, they’ll want to work with you again. They’ll also be more likely to recommend you to others. Read on for tips to help you enhance your professionalism—and your success.



REPUTATION IS EVERYTHING

In the business world, and on Upwork, your past work experience speaks volumes to future clients. The Job Success score is a measure of your reputation on Upwork. A freelancer’s history of success impacts their ranking in search in the marketplace and may be considered by clients who are deciding whether to engage them.

BEFORE TAKING ON A NEW PROJECT

It’s great to be enthusiastic and passionate about your work. However, that doesn’t mean you should agree to (or submit proposals for) every project that comes your way. Be selective and focus on the projects you can perform well—and get done on time. Here are five more tips to help you land new projects.

1. Understand the job

Make sure you know the scope of the project and skills that are required to accomplish it. Do they match up with your expertise? Make sure.

2. Check your availability

Understand the deadlines and ensure you have the time to complete the project successfully. Consider your other commitments and deadlines, and plan accordingly.

3. Make it clear why you’re the right fit

It’s not enough to know you can do the work. You need to show the client why you’re the best fit. Use your profile and introductory letter to show off your experience, demonstrate your skills, and make it easy for the client to choose you.

4. Screen your client

Interview the client while they interview you. Make sure you understand what they’re looking for. If you get a feeling that it’s not going to be the right match, don’t take the project.

5. Manage your time

There are only so many hours in the day. Be realistic about how much you’ll be able to accomplish; you simply can’t do it all. Only take on projects you’ll be able to do well and complete on time.

STARTING A NEW PROJECT

Before you begin working, it’s critical to make sure your new project gets off to a great start—communication is key. Here are a few best practices that have worked for other freelancers.

1. Have a kickoff meeting

Whether you meet via Skype, phone, or a Google Hangout, be sure to agree to the deliverable that are needed and the deadlines.

2. Determine how you’ll work together

During your kickoff meeting, consider letting your client know how you’ll communicate with them going forward. You may also want to communicate when, and at what points, you’ll update the client on your progress.

3. Set deadlines

Be sure to talk about and decide on the first few deadlines with your client. If the deliverable deadlines are not set forth in your service contract, it’s a good idea to get them in writing in Messages on Upwork, so you can easily reference them again later.

4. Make sure you have what you need

Put together a list of all the questions you have. You can go over this list during your kickoff meeting. In addition to your questions, are there any passwords, permissions, and contact information you’ll need? Gather everything needed to get started, and ask the client about all of it at once.

5. Be realistic

If you realize at any time that you won’t be able to complete the project, inform your client right away so they can plan accordingly.

DURING THE PROJECT

Communication, respect, and responsiveness are critical to forming a successful working relationship.

1. Be proactive

You may want to communicate with your client and let them know you’re on track to complete their project—even if your client doesn’t ask you to.

2. Respect deadlines

Agree with your client on due dates and make sure you make them. If for some reason you won’t be able to meet a deadline, communicate with your client immediately to let them know when you’ll be able to complete the work.

3. Ask questions

When in doubt, ask. If you have a question, don’t be afraid to reach out to the client. It’s important to be proactive and confident that your work is on the right track.

4. Be responsive

When your client reaches out, consider responding within a day. Clients might get concerned if they don’t hear from a freelancer promptly.

5. Request feedback

Asking for feedback about your work deliverables will help demonstrate to the client that you’re eager to deliver high-quality work and may lead to another engagement with the client.

AT THE END OF THE PROJECT

First impressions can help you win a contract. Final impressions can make or break the feedback you receive and whether the client engages you again in the future. Make sure both are equally positive.

1. Be sure the client is happy

When you submit your final deliverable, ask your client to let you know what they think of your work and if it meets their expectations. Be open to fixing it if necessary. If you do five-star work every time, your clients will rate you highly and be much more likely to work with you again.

2. Let the client end the contract

When you submit your final work and the client approves it, recommend that they end the contract. Clients often leave feedback about your business when they close a contract. Positive feedback can boost your score and is likely to make a good impression on other potential clients in the Upwork marketplace.
