Several advertising networks join the world of PPC and CPM advertising but none of them able to stand in front of AdSense. Some advertising networks even disappeared from the entire web. Some others are operating but they don’t reach even nearer to AdSense. The reason behind failure of these networks is that big brands choose Google Adwords to promote their products and small advertising networks fail to get high-budget advertisers and as a result, they can’t pay good to publishers.
A few days back, I tried MadAdsMedia. It is somehow good but still it stayed much behind than AdSense. In such a situation, finding a good alternative for AdSense is a tough task. Infolinks, Chitika, Qadabra and some other networks are somehow popular but they have their own issues. Some make the site ugly and some pay very low. On the other hand, some advertising networks pay good but they don’t approve sites easily. BuySellAds’s traffic requirements are not high, still they didn’t approve my blog last month. It seems strange. TribalFusion is among highest paying advertising networks, but it also accepts highly visited websites and blogs.
Next, the only advertising network, which deserves to be called as the best alternative to AdSense, is the Yahoo-Bing’s Media.net. Their contextual ads earn you the money from your blog’s impressions. Several people have been accepted into their program and they are happy. When I inquired a small Media.net publisher, he said that he is earning around $5-$6 each day and ads at his blog get around 3K impressions for generating $6. It reveals that Media.net isn’t bad at all and may be the true alternative to AdSense if AdSense has either ban you or something else has gone wrong with it.

Imran of AllTechBuzz shares his experience with Media.net and says that Media.net earnings have surpassed the earnings of AdSense at his blog. Some screenshots, which he has shared on his blog show the RPM around $0.90 which isn’t bad at all and is the highest among CPM networks I have tested to date.
