If you’ve been searching for a best way to monetize your blog without AdSense, this article is for you.
One of the desires of many bloggers and upcoming bloggers is to be able to monetize their website, since that is one of the many reasons why the website was created.
Unfortunately due to the strict AdSense policy and requirements, most bloggers have become frustrated and are already tired of their blogs.
In this post I’ve took my time to list out the best way to monetize your blog without AdSense, please stay tuned!
What Is AdSense?
AdSense is one of the biggest and most popular advertisement network in the internet.
AdSense was founded by Google in June 18, 2003.
AdSense is an advertisement network that allows Publishers to earn passive income with their blog and also allow advertisers generate sales and leads to their businesses.
AdSense Payment Settings
The minimum withdrawal for AdSense is $100 and they pay based on NET 30 payment settings, this means if you earn $100 in January you’ll be paid toward the end of February.
Why Do Many Bloggers Choose AdSense?
This question might be running in your head so I decided to talk on this.
Well, many bloggers choose and prefer AdSense because of how their ads are presented (very responsive and blends with the posts).
Another reason why many bloggers choose AdSense is because they pay way more higher than most advertisement networks in the internet.
Why Do I Need An AdSense Alternative?
After hearing all this pleasant words about AdSense, you may want to ask why bloggers are still in search for an AdSense alternative ad network when AdSense can give them more than what they need. Well, the truth is almost everyone wants to use AdSense ads but not everyone do get it.
Due to the fact that AdSense is one of the best ads network their application is becoming very strict day by day. AdSense also requires ID, pin and tax verification before you can get paid. This is very stressful especially for bloggers in Nigeria because it may take up to 3 months for pin to arrive and most Nigerians do not have the requirements.
