Most bloggers have spent ‘wasted’ months and years waiting for AdSense approval. Some have applied multiple times and got negative results.
There have been cases of bloggers who ‘downed their tools’ after being rejected by Google AdSense team. If you blog for fun and as a hobby, you won’t feel dejected if such happens to you since there are alternatives to AdSense. You just need to dust your fallen self up and move on. He who fights and run away lives to fight another day.
From my personal experience and that of those in my bloggers’ community, it is obvious that Google has fiercer codes of conduct for ‘Naija’ bloggers right now. It is like hunting, you need to differentiate when to pause and wait from when to go for the kill. If you really must apply for AdSense now, get experienced webmasters and Google experts to check for errors before you give it a shot.
Meanwhile, there are viable AdSense alternatives that you can ‘approach’ for monetization. AdSense is not the only ad network. Okay?! Advertisers abound, and they need numerous ad companies to help them reach their myriads of potential customers. The Naija thorough-breeds will say ‘at all, at all na im bad pass’. Better have something than nothing.
Although this post will dwell on AdSense alternatives, it is imperative I point out that bloggers do well when they personally source for adverts and sponsored posts. Many self-made bloggers have gained healthy incomes from that venture.
As you wait for AdSense approval or enjoy your blogging habits, you can check out the following AdSense alternatives:
This is one of the best alternatives for AdSense. As AdSense is to Google so is Media.net to Yahoo. It enables publishers to earn money from advertising revenue. Just like AdSense, getting approved is tough. You daily traffic must be very fat and it’s not for newbie blog of days or weeks old.
Presently, you can only get into the network via an invitation.

This ad company is not on same par with AdSense, not even close, but you can make some income through them. It’s a Performance base Ad Network that helps publishers to generate more revenue.
The down side is that you should not expect easy quick money. Minimum pay-out is $20.
This is a very nice alternative to AdSense. However, to qualify you must have between two to five thousands daily page views. Minimum pay-out is $20. They boast of the highest eCPM.
To qualify, you must have about 50,000 monthly visits, have a site free from adult content, avoid pirated or illegal materials and have a malware-free website or blog.
Formerly known as BuySellAds. This label is another good source of income for bloggers who have issues with Adsense. The company is a sort of middleman between publishers and advertisers. All they get from you is about 25% of the transaction.
Before your site can get approved however, you must boast of mammoth traffic. Did I say getting them to approve your site is tougher than getting AdSense to approve you? Well, I just did. You can give it a shot.

This is one of my favourites Adsense alternative. It’s not really cumbersome getting approved if your site is well built and with nice contents.
