In my opinion, there are two reasons people create a blog. Firstly, they want to share their thoughts, knowledge, experiences or point of view in certain things with other people, whether people would read it or not. And the second one is to earn money from their blogs. Fortunately, you can combine these two reasons and still earning money while being sincere with what you create for your blog.
For years, Google Adsense has been the top money maker tool for many bloggers. Knowing that their status as most wanted online advertising media, Google becomes more stringent and wouldn’t hesitate to ban any publisher account who doesn’t stick to their policies.
In today’s post, I will list some choices of online advertising programs other than Adsense. They’re good alternatives if you find Adsense is troubling you or doesn’t bring enough benefit. Here is the list:
As one of the best alternatives, Adbrite gives opportunity to bloggers with less traffic to gain money. When Google only release payout that has reached minimum of $100, bloggers can set payment method to amount bigger than $5 on Adbrite. It pays 75% of ad share for all bloggers.
