There are many Adsense alternatives for small websites which accept low traffic blogs immediately. But most of them pay very less. In this tutorial, I am going to give you best-performing ad networks with my statistics. I have tried below ad networks. There are some more ad networks which may perform better than below ad networks. But I can give you details about the ad networks what I have used.
No doubt, Adsense is the highest paying ad network in the world. But new blogs may not get approval from Adsense. If your blog is 6 months old, you can try Adsense even if you have low traffic.

Adsense alternatives for small websites
Earlier days of my blogging, I did not get approval from Adsense and I have tried many ad networks. I am giving you best-performed ad networks based on my earning. I need to mention that 40% of my traffic comes from India, around 20% traffic from the USA. If you get good traffic from tier1 countries like US, Canada, and UK you will see better results than me.
Infolinks is the best CPM ad network for low traffic as well as big websites. Earlier it was giving only text ads. New they are providing almost all types of ads. They are improving their products every day.
Infolinks ads types:
- Text link ads.
- Infold ads which appear at the bottom.
- Floating display ads.
- Native type ads.
- Popup ads.
- Interstetial ads. etc.,
I have seen very good results with this ad network even with the low traffic. It even performed well for India traffic. Sometimes I have seen CPM above $1. They accept blogs immediately. There is no traffic limitation. They provide high-quality ads. They pay via PayPal and minimum payout threshold is $50.
Bidvertiser is another best Adsense alternatives for small websites. It is a pay per click network. It has produced very good results for me. They provide banner ads and text ads. Minimum payout threshold is only $10. They pay via PayPal. Their ads are not good quality. Some ads look like spam ads. Their mobile ads may redirect your visitors. Still, it pays very well.
Media Net is pay per click ad network. It is the network made by Yahoo and Bing. It is also one of the top ad networks. It supports only text ads. Pay per click amount will be based on your website niche. I did not see good results with my tech blog. Of course, if you have good traffic from US, you may get better results than me. I have seen that many bloggers got even better results than Adsense. They can pay you through PayPal or Wire Transfer. Minimum payout threshold is $50.
Chitika is another good PPC network. It is one of the old ad networks. I got my first income from Chitika. It accepts every blog immediately. Though it did not perform well for me, it performs very well for tier1 countries traffic. Earlier, it was providing only text ads. Now they are providing banner ads also. Earlier their payout minimum threshold was only $10. They were paying via PayPal. Now they support Payoneer which is the best PayPal alternatives.
PopCash is the best pop-under networks. I don’t recommend you to use pop up or pop under networks. If you need good money for maintaining your blog, you can use it. It pays the very good amount. You can see country breakdown report. I have got better amount than all other above networks. I have seen up to $1 CPM for India and up to $3 CPM for US and Australia. They pay via PayPal. They pay the amount on request.
If you get Adsense approval, you need not use any other ad networks. My suggestion is to learn about affiliate marketing. If you know how to do affiliate marketing, you will get the huge amount. You will get 10 to 20 times more money than Adsense. You can also take any one of the affiliate marketing courses from Udemy.
