Google Adsense is without doubts the king of online ad services. So far, there is no competition between Adsense and any other ad network. It is run effectively by Google and has been improving and upgrading its systems time to time. It has high CPC (Cost Per Click) rates and many things more which has made it the top PPC network among all others. But what if you violate a program policy or Google mistakenly disabled your account?, you at that time will be thinking to find out alternatives for GA. However, it isn’t necessary that you should think of Adsense alternatives when you got disabled. You should always think to find more monetization options for your blogs and websites. Internet is full of treasures and opportunities. Whether your Adsense account is active or not but you should consider the top ten ad networks which pay less than Adsense, but pay on time.
These are actually alternative websites to Google Adsense, but I’m again ensuring that they can be used along with Adsense as well as without it. Because GA is not the only solution to monetize your blog on. There is a lot more on the way, something big is also there than GA.
