29 replies
A lot of threads get started here looking for resources or information so I thought I would throw a quick list together. I'm not advocating the use of any of these just simply providing the list in the hopes it might help someone find something they are looking for. I know there are some obvious sites/resources missing so please feel free to add to this, I know it certainly isn't all encompassing:

      Fair enough, but how do we know you don't own all these sites

      Great collection.
      Came across this list of Adsense alternatives (from adsensealternatives dot org), some of them can be added to the Contextual Advertising Companies list:

      New!! - The latest and the best alternative for Google adsense is InfoLinks. Infolinks is giving really great eCPM these days and is surely a big threat to Google Adsense.

      Yahoo YPN - Yahoo publisher Network (YPN) is your best adsense alternative if you live in USA. But they are very rarely accepting new publisher applications for new publishers.

      Kontera - Kontera is the second best option which provides inline contextual ads. I have run these ads on one of my sites producing half the income of google adsense.

      TNX - TNX is a network where you can sell text links automatically on your site (it works great even for PR0 sites) - Highly recommended.

      Widget Bucks - Widget Bucks is a great contextual shopping based advertising network which pays upto %0.50 CPC (which is great) and also gives $25 free just for registration.

      Adbrite - Adbrite is your second best adsense alternative (or fist, if you live outside USA) to monetize your website. Please note, you may see very little earnings for first 15 days (or even a month) as they collect your website statistics.

      Clicksor - Clicksor is third best adsense alternative. It provides both inline and text-banner contextual ads for your website. So it can also be a good alternative for google adsense.

      Text Link Ads - If your site is atleast PR4 or have good alexa then you can earn quite a good amount by selling directory links through 'text link ads'. If your page rank is higer, it can ever surpass your adsense earnings. So go for it. It is highly recommended.

      Chitika - Chitika created a lot of noise when it was started as a google adsense alternative. But finally it has stabilized and is a contant good earner.

      Bidvertiser - Bidvertiser is also a good contextual ad option for your site. They have been paying from a long time and are quite consistent.

      Etology - Etology is a new adsenes alternative and is told to be doing great. Some of the publishers claimed that they are making double with Etology than with Adbrite.

      There are other programs which I hightly recommend. These are not the adsense alternatives but can surely complement your revenue with very good payment.

      Casale Media - Casale media is one of the best banner advertising network providing one of the best eCPM for your ad space. They provide 728x90, 120x600, 300x250 banners and popups. They payment rates are really really good.

      Adversal - Adversal is popup program which pays a huge $6.00 per 1000 unique impressions ($6 CPM). I am getting paid from them on time from last 6 months without any delays ever.

      Others:

      TargetPoint
      BidClix
      AllFeeds
      Adhearus
      AffiliateSensor
      Veoda
      RevenuePilot

    Hey,
    One of the companies you missing from survey companies is NBRI. They do all kinds of surveys, such as customer service survey, customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, ext. They have some powerful tools that others don't have. One of the tools are benchmarking which will allow you to compare industry average results to your results. Many more cool options. It is is not one of those "make instant surveys and integrate in website" but if some one is serious about it, they should consider them.

    Wow

    That's a lot of resources.

    Thanks.

    And lots of free ones, too.

    I recently discovered IMToolSuite and I am extremely
    impressed. It's a monthly service. With the exception
    of web hosting, they offer about everything you
    can think of and a lot you might not ever think of,
    to brand yourself and get leads and sales.

    It does seem weird they didn't throw in hosting, but
    they do give you a mini-site creator and you can
    be up on the web within minutes.

    I'm not connected with them in any way, but will probably
    become a member, down the road.

    You might want to include them in your list.

      We are considering implementing Eloqua and are researching the time and resources required to get Eloqua up and running effectively. Has anyone out there installed Eloqua? If so, I'd like to talk to you to hear about your experience. Looking for companies similar to ours in the 100-300 range for employees, sales of 20mil or less and a marketing team of 5-15 people.

      Thanks!
