If you are looking to make money with your blog or website, there is a great chance that you’ve already kicked the tires on a Google Adsense account.  For years, Adsense has been the first stop bloggers make on the monetization highway, and with good reason.  Google dominates the industry, and adding their site to the content network brings them one step closer to earning the big bucks.

Your content + their network = SCORE!!!!

Too often, though, the Adsense “money train” is derailed before it even leaves the station.  Many site owners find themselves excluded from serving ads for a myriad of reasons.  Sometimes the reasons are clear; most often, though, Publishers receive vague letters informing them that they have been removed from network.  As anyone publisher who has received one of these messages can attest, once you’re out, YOU’RE OUT.  It’s nearly impossible to even obtain a review of your account to address any issues.

Wait – Google being cold and inflexible in their decisions?  I too am shocked!

Sarcasm aside, there are some strong alternatives to Adsense available for the site owner looking to monetize their content.  Here are 3 solid options to consider if Adsense stops serving you ads:


Infolinks allows publishers to make money through their websites by serving ads tagged to specific keywords. These ads are automatically added as Infolinks indexes the site, appearing as links in the content.   Ads appear as a surfer hovers over these links.  Payouts start at $50 and can be made via PayPal, Check, Bank Wire Transfer, and Payoneer.

The Good: Clean ad design. Inline text format + non-exclusivity requirement frees up real estate to add a second set of ads on pages.

The Bad: Infolinks can be tough on sites with low quality content.  Bring your ‘A’ game when applying.
