      Thanks for responding. With Clicksor and Intellilinks, can I have their ads on a page with adsense? Also are theses pay per click?

    I'll have to try some of these.

    I've been testing with infolinks.com over the last week and the results are terrible.

    I have used adbrite for about a year now and they do not pay as well as adsense.

    Hands down I have not come across anyone who pays as well as adsense. Most of the people that use the other services is due to their adsense accounts being banned

      Yeah, I think that pretty much sums it up. It's weird, I've never heard of anyone creating MFI sites (Made for Infolinks )

    There is nothing but getting an offline job.

    Now there are real ways to monetize, just
    not like adsense. Pie in the sky wannabes.

    Case closed, next case.

      Adsense is the best but people just dont know how to target the crowd of users that click on ADs.It's a hard art but if you focus finding those people who are most likely to click ADs then you will be ok. The staple of my buisness is social media like twitter and facebook, that where you find impulsive people who will click on ADs often.

    Hi all, this is Pamela from Infolinks. I'd first like to direct a comment to vjboc, and then to Phil.
    VJ, Infolinks is a Pay Per Click In-Text advertising platform that is completely compatible with AdSense. GO ahead and give us a try, we'll be happy to work with you!

    Phil, I'm sorry to hear you're not satisfied from Infolinks so far, though I encourage you to give it a few more weeks. One week usually isn't enough time to gauge how your true earnings will be. I also suggest that you contact our customer support team as they'd be happy to give you some optimization tips to raise your earning potential.
    Happy blogging!

      Hi Pamela

      Thanks for stopping by. I wasn't trying to be too harsh, but to be honest the results I've received in the last week have been disappointing. Not only from a CTR perspective but also from a CPC perspective.

      For example, over the last 7 days I've received 45,000 pageviews which only resulted in 141 clicks (CTR of less than 1%) and CPC of $.04.

      Even if I could increase the CTR to 10% (which is highly unlikely) it still wouldn't be worth it.

      On the other hand, at $.04 CPC it may make sense to buy traffic.

      Let me know your thoughts.

      Cheers

      Phil

    I have tried a few on that list but always end up returning to Adsense. There is plenty of alternatives but the majority of feedback will say the same i.e. they do not pay as much.

    Honestly there is no any alternative to adsense, but you can try clicksor or adbrite.

    There are CPM networks that acutally pay higher than Google Adsense for certain types of low CTR sites such as forums. However, it is very difficult to get into such networks. Examples include Burst Media, Casale Media, Tribal Fusion etc.

    hi,

    This is Jonathan from Kontera. Depending on your content and traffic, Kontera could potentially be a good match for you. We're a great option either apart or alongside AdSense, and thanks to our exclusive ad inventory from major brands such as Microsoft, Showtime, L'Oreal, Toyota, Verizon, McDonald's, we offer great CPC, and are particularly strong in Auto, Hi-Tech, and Lifestyle verticals.

    You're best bet is to contact to a Kontera account manager and get an honest appraisal if Kontera is a good match for you

    They do work, but it depends on the nature of your website. If it is a micro niche site, then it may not work so well. But if it is a site that is getting lots of traffic, it has a higher chance of getting higher revenue.
