I have a technical blog (programming related) which has around 500 visit per days, 70% are international visitors and 30% are from US/CA.

Google Adsense disabled my account due to invalid clicks so I can't use them (no need to explain here, they suck hard and never respect and listen to the publishers' appeal)

I have tried adbrite and recently using chitika but they almost give me nothing, e.g.


13,865 Page Views 4 clicks $0.01

The performance is so poor even I don't want to mention about it. I am already putting a full top banner and a 350x200 box in article body.

I am researching if any alternative would provide more revenue for my internation visitors or technical visitors.

Same happened to me, my research took me to BuySellAds, I've seen great sites that use their system, take a look at the ads of Iconfinder.

The Good: BuySellAds is slightly different than adsense, I like it because the advertiser buys a spot on your site; they also support CPM based ads, etc. The Bad: they take a big cut IMAO.

Also I think you should try to implement your own adbased solution or try an ad service provider such as http://www.adzerk.com/ (StackOverflow uses it).

Good luck with your research.


You should try Adbrite, they are equally good as Google adsense.


i would look at


buysellads.com - slightly different as people will target your site on its content



Clicksor - It's one of the most popular advertisement networks

and a good alternative to Google Adsense which is available for free on the internet. They allow you to earn through different ad-formatslike In-line Text Ads, Contextual Ads (banner and text) and more. You can earn up to 60% of the revenue share, depending on the performance the advertisers attain from your website placements and clicks.
