Google Adsense is one of the largest advertising programs online. Most bloggers monetize their blog with Google adsense because of its simplicity. From my research, I got to know that most webmasters source of revenue is Google Adsense since it allows publishers from all country to participate in the program. But the problem with Google adsense program is that they are strict with their TOS. A publisher’s account may get banned for invalid click and non compliance with their TOS.
Has adsense ban you from using their ad networks? or Your blog/website was not allowed to join the network due to some reasons? or Do you wish to add more ad networks to your blog/website to increase your earnings? No matter what the reason may be, I want to share 10 google adsense alternatives that offer CPM and CPC with low pay out other than adsense that needs you to reach a minimum of $100 payout before you receive your payment and this may be tedious for new bloggers to reach.
Note that having more than 2 ad networks on your blog or website may make your blog or website look spamming and if you are running Google adsense ad on your blog/website, don’t use any contextual ad network with it since it is against their TOS.
One of the advantages of Yahoo Bing Network compare to Google AdSense is perhaps its ability to allow publishers to customize their ad units in terms of style (size, color, shapes) so it blends better with their respective website.

Kontera provides in-text ads and show a small balloon ad over selected words that advertisers pay for. This type of ad network is suitable for blogs and website that have rich content.

You can get your earnings via Check, Wire-transfer and PayPal. Their Minimum payout is $50.
Infolinks is just like Kontera. Infolinks also use in-text ads. To me, the click-through rate of Infolinks is better than that of Kontera.
