I hope that this list will be helpful to you.

The best Adsense Alternatives online programs for website publishers.

Last Found:

AdToll: AdToll is a hybrid ad network that allows you to sell ad space on your site for a price you determine with you keeping 75% of the revenue.  If you do not sell a space, the unsold inventory will be filled with “Run of Network” ads which are a cost-per-click solution.  Payout minimums are $20 for PayPal and $40 for checks.

eClickZ: eClickZ focuses on search engine sites and some content sites, and they guarantee their advertisers a higher quality of traffic.  If your site qualifies, you will be able to talk with an account manager, use a toll free number to call them and take advantage of payout minimums of $50 that can be paid by PayPal.

Infolinks: Infolinks focuses on in-text advertising, but is welcoming to web sites of all sizes and traffic so that there is next to no threshold to joining.  Payment threshold is $100 and can be made by PayPal or check.

Kontera: Kontera focuses mainly on inline contextual advertising and offers plugins and one-click support for Blogger, Drupal, Joomla and WordPress.  The service has the standard $100 payment threshold, but does offer negotiable CPM rates based on the amount of traffic your site generates.  There is a requirement for 500,000 page views to participate in the system.

Microsoft pubCenter (U.S. only): Microsoft’s advertising solution is still considered a beta product, but it is fully functioning and you can control what ads appear on your site by sorting out keywords or URLs.  There is a minimum payout of $50.

Exit Junction: offers a unique approach to advertising that is compatible with all the other Ad Networks included Google Adsense. The key to Exit junction is that they focus on showing ads to users as they leave your site rather than as they arrive or as they browse. This approach offers you an additional way to monetize your traffic and also capture ad revenue from those that stumble upon your site from search engine and then immediately leave.

ClickThru: Not the best alternative but if you can’t get accepted by any of the above you can always try these guys. They claim that you will earn between 6 and 20 cents everytime a surfer clicks on an advertisement on your site but in reality I think you are more likely to see rates around the 0.5c to 2c range. However, feel free to try it out and see how you get on. Advert wise they offer text links, buttons and banners.

ValueClick: (FastClick). At first look  would appear to be one of the better alternatives to Google’s Adsense however, they are one of many online advertising companies that tend to favor the large customers. You’d think companies would have learnt from Google’s success and accepted that the way to make money is to target both large and small. Remember Excite? They went the way of the dodo because they only targeted the top 100 companies rather than the small guys who can’t afford large TV adverts and have to advertise on the Internet instead. Anyway, I digress. If you can get yourself accepted to  ValueClick then you will probably be able to run some reasonably high paying adverts on your site but most small website owners will find that ValueClick simply aren’t interested.

SpeedyAds: SpeedyAds, Entireweb’s Pay Per Click Advertising solution, is a non-invasive, cost-efficient way of getting your site and products in front of thousands of people.

Contextual Ads:

Bidvertiser: Display the BidVertiser text ads on your website or blog, get paid for every click and have the payments sent directly to your PayPal account. However, somebody says the ad pool seems a little limited. Rating 4/5

AdBrite: AdBrite offers numerous ad styles from the standard contextual ad units, but also offers rich media, inline, full pages and more.  The system has one of the lowest thresholds for payment. It defaults to $100 payment, but you can set as low as $5.  Payments are issued on a net-60 system, i.e. earnings made in March are paid in May.

Clicksor: One has many ad options [text, image and animated ads] and payment is made via Paypal. However, they do have some joining restrictions with a 5,000 page views per day or 150000 page views per month requirement. Rating 4/5
