(Last Updated On: October 6, 2019)

Are you struggling hard to get your Google Adsense account? (Or) Struggling to make money online with google adsense?

Or

You are looking to make more money online then what adsense pays you? Then this post is a good news, because this is all about Best Google Adsense Alternatives in 2020.

If you’re new into the blogging world, you might be curious how to get your Google Adsense account, or if you have been rejected in your first attempt, then you must be trying to make your blog better with new, fresh content and improved theme.

What I want to share in this blog post is that there are alternatives to Google Adsense. I know Google Adsense is a great monetization option and a lot of beginners dream of get approved into this ad program and monetize their blogs.

But the point I want to emphasise is that whether or not it is going to help your new blog. This blog post might look strange to you, especially if you working your butt off and trying to get an Adsense account.

The reason I’m writing this blog post is that I want to make the most out of your situation. If you have a three months old blog, then be it. I don’t want you to get upset just because you don’t get approved as a publisher in the Google Adsense program for some reason yet.

Why You Don’t Need Adsense :

google adsense to make money

I also want to make a point that you may not need an Adsense account (yet), and here is why:

It requires high traffic to make money

You won’t make money online without paying anything even if you get an Adsense account until you have thousands of daily visitors with millions of page views each month. It’s a harsh reality that it is not easy to make money through the ad networks and Adsense is no different. Unlike large media sites and publishers which have millions of visitors every month, you won’t have that kind of numbers in your statistics. So you should know that it requires a heavy amount of traffic to make money through Google Adsense, and in case, you’re a beginner, then it’s not going to help you.

Frequent Adsense Account Suspensions

Every once in a while, Google Adsense teams do a mass suspension of their Adsense Publishers account. While majority of the suspensions are due to some violation (Small or major), however they are done without notification and then there are a very minor amount of people who get their accounts suspended on a doubt. So it’s always a good idea on don’t put all your eggs in one basket and have some backup alternative.

Google takes up to half of what you earn

As per adsense revenue share, Google publishers receive 68% of the revenue recognized by Google in connection with the service and with AdSense for search, publishers receive 51% of the revenue recognized by Google.

Affiliate marketing can be a game changer

Affiliate Marketing make money without investment or paying anything

You may end up making money via an affiliate program on day one of promoting a product on your blog. You don’t have to put affiliate links or banners right from the start of your blog. Take some time and put out content that purely helps people.

Then, after a few weeks, do a complete analysis of your niche and blog content, and figure out the affiliate products that suit your blog. Using the products before promoting is a great strategy to win the confidence of the audience. And, yes, affiliate marketing can be a game changer because you can start making money right from the beginning of putting up the affiliate banners on your blog.


Ads often make blogs look clumsy

how to make money blogging without ads or affiliate marketing

Have you ever noticed the blogs with lots of ads on them? Do the blogs with loads of ads look better or the ones without any ad? This is obvious that blogs with no ads would look better. If you start to bombard your audience with the ads on your blog or website, it becomes annoying for the audience to use your website or consume your content on the blog.

If you really want to pull this off, make sure that your ads aren’t hanging everywhere on the layout and disturbing the user-experience. The blogs that are filled up with the ads don’t tend to attract the readers because once people land on them and they quickly leave if there are popups all around the content, or clicking anywhere is opening up the ads in the browser tabs.


You can start selling your service

make money selling service online

One of the benefits of finding a Google Adsense alternative is that you can sell your own service on your blog. Whether you’re a graphic designer, consultant, or freelance writer, you can use your blog to market your service, work for clients, and get paid online. It could also work out really well when you are just starting out because if you’re starting out, you won’t have much traffic and even having an Adsense account won’t make any money. So by selling your service, you will have the opportunity to market something you’re doing already using your own platform from the early days of your blog.

  1. Is there any earning difference between adsense and media.net? and please also share some detail about CTR and CPM of both of these networks? Which one is better to use right now?

    1. Yes. Earnings may differ. Difference is based on so many factors such as country, niche, content and then one ad program may have huge advertisers in one niche and the other maybe low. So these figures vary from individual to individual. Try using both of them and see which makes more money and then stick with it.
