2018-2019: Top 10 Online Advertising Networks for Your Website

Every time someone talks about making an online website/project profitable, invariably, the first thing that comes to mind is Google AdSense. And while there’s nothing particularly wrong with that – after all, it continues to be the world’s largest advertising network – based on the assumption that there’s no better option than AdSense.

The advertising technology industry is highly volatile and it’s no exaggeration to say that Google has competitors who are out to get their money’s worth.

Making the decision to determine which advertising platform, or even which combination of ad networks are suitable for your website may seem complicated but it is necessary to determine which ones generate the most revenue for you. It’s a decision that needs to be weighed up, but when you finally figure it out, you’ll see that it’s well worth the effort.

Here is a selection of the 10 best alternatives to Google Adsense that you should check whether you are an editor (webmaster or blogger) or an advertiser (get more for less).
