If you already have a website, you may already be familiar with Google’s AdSense program. AdSense is a fast and easy way for website publishers of all sizes to display relevant Google ads on their website’s content pages and earn money.
Because the ads are related to what your visitors are looking for on your site — or matched to the characteristics and interests of the visitors your content attracts — you’ll finally have a way to both monetize and enhance your content pages. However, AdSense is not the only way to make money.
- Google AdSense
- Chitika and Kanoodle are some of the better known alternatives
- More than 50 other AdSense Alternatives are featured on threadwatch.org
An interesting take on this question comes from Kory Becker. “I’ve recorded the average earnings, pluses, and minuses in a trial of several of the most popular PPC web master programs on a high traffic site.

My reviews listed below are graded on a scale from A to F, and included testing of pay-per-click and pay-per-sale (affiliate) programs.”
