Help Us Build this List Out!

I’m aware that the list is not complete. I’ve probably made some embarrassing ommisions, but with your help, we can build this list out to be the most comprehensive list of blog advertising programs on the web.

Please let me know what im missing in this list! and i’ll ad entries to it over time. Just post a comment and we’ll mop up any last programs we’ve missed 🙂

I have not included YPN or MSNAdCenter as both are in beta right now, and not open to all, and pure affilate networks aren’t what we’re here for, that’s a seperate list.

I hope you get some use out of this, so please tell us what we’re missing, and what you think of individual programs!

  1. Great compilation Nick. Though, I would love to see as well as a part of this list. Since, being a member with for more than 2 years, I can say it is one of the most competitive online advertising networks.

  2. I have a website and i Want to advertise, pls contact me at jim.carrey85[at] if you can publish my ads at lower cost. IF going with CPC it should be 10 clicks per cent. Pls contact.

  3. Bloggers can earn more by placing sponsored posts on their blogs.How the paid content marketplace work is simple, you put a sort of link, reviews, short article on your blog/ blog post and in return the advertisers pay you for your support. It will never make your blog down but will be helpful your readers in most cases. That means more room to choose the best one for your blog. The idea is simple and the only one, but I got 10 options to share with you.

  4. Great Adsense Alternative OR complement. – PPC with different ad formats and the famous dynamic text ads

  5. Widgetbucks
    Earn from both pay-per-click and PPC
    Payout only $50
    Payout in both checks and paypal

    A number of publishers who have tested WidgetBucks are seeing a $3-6 CPM.


  6. Depends on your niche and the traffic volume. Personally, I like Text-Link-Ads for some of my sites. Adsense makes nearly nothing for me yet, but that’s because I don’t have a lot of traffic. (I spend most of my time writing for clients.)

    I’m going to see if I can write a series on monetization ideas; but I’m not an expert.

  7. @syafthegeek: Are you saying you can’t see AdSense and Bidvertiser ads in Firefox? If so, then you might have an adblocker turned on. Because I have run both on one of my sites, to test, and they worked fine in Firefox.

  8. Wow, just the list I have been looking for, thanks guys. I think an updated (as some one mentioned) list with ratings would be ideal. Anyone want to slap one together?

  9. Any chance to add couple of characteristics important for bloggers?
    1) Is the program just for US, US/UK or is available worldwide;
    2) Entry barrier height. For example, AFAIK to enter IntelliTXT your blog has to make 500,000 pageviews a month
    3) AdSense compatibility. If I remember correctly, there are some restrictions in AdSense terms, that disallow using some kinds of advertisements together with AdSense
    4) A chance for Performancing Metrics to capture the program earnings in the near future
    5) Subjective rating of the Performancing team
