The AdSense account of a client of mine got banned by Google, after filing a reconsideration requests it ends in a permanent deactivation. I'm now investigating the alternatives he has when it comes to placing text ads on his Dutch website. Which other companies are out there that offer the same (or more:) capability of Google's in context text based ads for Dutch websites?
A good method to find the answer is: Use the same network as other top websites in the Netherlands (or many other countries) are using, excluding AdSense of course:
- Browse the top 100 Dutch websites and take note on those who uses text and banner ads
- Find the companies behind their ad sales
- Contact those ad placement companies and ask how to join their network
A free place to find out which are the top sites in any country is Google Ad Planner
If your client has a website with loyal visitors and a common interest, your client can try to sell ad placement directly to anyone that wants to promote something to those visitors.
