A Review of the Top Five Adsense Alternatives
Have you ever heard of Google Adsense? If you’re a blogger, chances are you’re quite familiar with it. Because it seems like Google’s Adsense advertising platform is the default mechanism that bloggers use to make money from their sites.
It’s an easy system to get into, but that’s also a huge part of the problem. It’s too easy. So today, we’re going to talk about some Adsense alternatives.
The barrier to entry in Adsense is so low that the ads are not customizable. And, frankly, bloggers have very little control over what they’re showing their audience. This can be an unpredictable way to website monetization. Worse, Google’s cost per click payout has shown signs of a decline.
That’s a major issue for bloggers who are looking to monetize their sites and earn extra income. Google Adsense provides a lot of flexibility. But unless you’re exceptionally experienced with ad serving psychology like ad placement for banner ads, you might be doing yourself a disservice.
Google won’t optimize the ad placement on your site. They require you to do that. They won’t test the best images, locations or types of ads on your site.
Again, that’s all on you. Which is a tad bit intimidating.
But it’s also why I’m so psyched to be sharing this sponsored post with you. So we can all learn more about how to better utilize advertising space on our website. Because there are definitely better options out there, over Google Adsense.
