intellinks: Intellilinks lets you sell simple text links on your sites to advertisers for a set monthly fee. The more traffic you have and the better your search engine
rankings, the higher you can set your monthly charge. If you have a site that is ranked well and receives a good amount of traffic, you will want to take a close look at Intellilinks.
For integration, they provide a WordPress plugin or script that is easy to install. This plugin or script automates the process of adding text links to your site.
Sold links can be placed inside of content and on the sidebar as related links. Your site visitors do not have to click these links for you to be paid.
Payments are made through PayPal on a monthly basis. One negative thing about Intellilinks is that it may take time for advertisers to purchase links on your site
Clicksor: Clicksor offers publishers multiple ad formats including clickable text and targeted contextual banner ads for use on their sites.
All ads displayed to your site’s visitors are context sensitive. This way your site visitors see ads that they will be more likely to click.
They offer weekly payouts via PayPal or check. The minimum payout threshold is currently $50.
Clicksor also offers an affiliate program that pays a 10% commission.
Caveat: They’re getting more picky on which sites they accept and are rejecting many sites that are not based in the US, Canada or UK.
Infolinks: Infolinks ad network currently serves targeted ads on over 125,000 websites. They work best on sites that contain large amounts of text based content.
Infolinks indexes your pages to determine the best ads to display. Several types of ads are available to publishers for use on their sites.
The main ad type Infolinks provides is their in-text ad links. Selected words on your page are selected and either double underlined or dotted underlined. When a visitor scrolls over one of the words, a pops up containing an ad relevant to the word appears.
These ads can appear a little spammy and get a little annoying when you accidentally move your cursor over a link. They do allow you to limit the number on a page though.
They also have an ad block called related tags. These are very similar in look to AdSense horizontal link blocks.
A tag cloud ad block is available for your use if you feel it would be suitable for your site’s layout.
Infolinks has a search widget that sits at the bottom of the screen and when a visitor moves their cursor over its bar, it slides up to display its contents.
Infolinks will not approve a site if they feel it is thin on content.
adversal: Adversal is an excellent alternative to AdSense if your site gets over 50,000 page views per month.
They have fast approvals but make sure your site meets their requirements before you apply to be a publisher.
They offer various banner sizes and types to publishers. Pop-unders and ministitial type ads are also available for publisher use.
Currently their minimum payout is $20. A PayPal option is available.
Adversal is also one of the few ad networks that has an affiliate program.
Please be aware that Adversal will reject any site that does not receive at least 50,000 page views per month.
Medianet: Media.Net gives you exclusive access to the Yahoo! Bing Network. They are one of the world’s largest contextual ad networks and boast many top publishers like
Forbes, ELLE, Reuters, and Good Housekeeping. Media.Net offers publishers several ad styles. Do note however that they only allow one of each ad type to appear on a page.
The main ad style available is the content ad. These are contextual ad blocks that are available in different sizes to suit your needs.
The next ad type available is the search targeting ad. These appear the same way as contextual ads but are only displayed to search engine traffic.
Media.Net also provides web bar and mobile ads to its publishers.
I feel that this is the closest AdSense alternative currently available. But, be aware that they are known for suspending accounts and not stating the reason. So, if you use them, read all the rules and be careful to follow them.
Possible roadblock: Media.Net needs to approve each sit you want to place ads on. And they’re a little strict on what sites they approve.
Adsterra: Adsterra is one of the fastest growing premium ad networks and currently serves over 10 billion geo-targeted ad impression per month. They offer various popular ad formats for web and mobile devices: popunders,
standard banners, pushups, interstitial, sliders, and direct links. Adsterra is a perfect alternative to AdSense for the websites that have over 50K impressions per month. They work with website from all types of niches
