“Your Google Adsense account has been disabled or temporarily banned”.
I know there are many bloggers who have confronted the above shown nice phrase in their lives. But don’t get demotivated, AdSense is not the only advertising network for publishers. There are a lot of ad networks that share a decent amount of revenue to their publisher. Everyday thousands of accounts are being banned from Google’s Adsense program. If you are one of them who didn’t get approved by AdSense or got banned by AdSense, then you can try the following networks. You can also use these networks along with AdSense to increase your revenue. Here is the list of AdSense Alternatives (2016) that are similar to Google AdSense.

Read Associates Program Operating Agreement by Amazon Associates.
Ads Types :
|Product Links, Banners, Site Stripe|
Payment Method : Payment method by Amazon is not impressive, I have to say. You can choose to be paid by direct deposit, Amazon.com gift card, or cheque. Amazon pays approximately 60 days after the end of each month, For Example : Payment for January is made in late March which is very late I suppose. The minimum cheque threshold is $100 for all Associates. The $10 minimum for direct deposits and Amazon.com gift certificates still apply for all Associates. If you want you may have request higher thresholds.

It doesn’t matter what kind of website you have, Revenuehits shows ads/offers depending on the traffic brought by publisher rather than advertisers needs. Since Revenuhits is a Geo Targeted and Contextual Ad Network, it adjusts according to the traffic your blog receives rather than you bringing in the traffic an advertiser requires.
Approval Requirement : There is neither minimum traffic requirements nor publisher language requirements. But I recommend to get better alexa rank, good site layout, not fake traffic etc. Revenuehits approve accounts very fast, don’t need to worry. Publisher Prohibited Contents are Adult or mature content (content), hate speech, harassment, sales of illegal firearms and other content publishers would expect to see blocked on a mainstream ad network of this type. RevenueHits also prohibits a variety of navigation techniques such as redirection, unsolicited emails, forced clicks and other tactics as outlined in their terms of service. You can also see Terms and Conditions of RevenueHits.
Ads Types :
|Display Ads, Pop Ups, Apps & Widget|

There is a misconception that Adsense is the only thing. I know that Adsense pays the most, but sometime something is better than nothing, life is full of challenge. You don’t get what you want. Never lose hope, Even if your Google Adsense account was banned. There are many ways to earn online. Be professional and you know what, its not the end but beginning.
It should be noted that organic traffic is very important to get profit from Adsense alternatives. Without the help of organic traffic, it’s hard for anyone to make money from Adsense alternatives. The more traffic you get, the more clicks you can generate and the more clicks you get, the more money you can make from these AdSesne alternatives. With some sort of using your head you can earn equal or more to Adsense.
