Adsense Alternative: Yahoo! Bing Network


To be honest there are no real alternative for adsense when it comes to relevancy of ads and earning potential. But if we had to list an alternative then I would go with ad networks like
Chitika, Bidvertiser, etc.

When YPN (Yahoo! Publisher Network) was shutdown they recommended their publishers to switch to Chitika, but to my disappointment Chitika was no were near to adsense. Their eCPM was low. But had good results for traffic coming mostly from search engine and on product niche sites.

I tried some other smaller ad networks and none of them even matched Chitika and Bidvertiser.

Yahoo! Bing Network

After long time I signed up for – it serves contextual ads from Yahoo! Bing Network. The name Yahoo! brought my attention and I finally signed up for it. First 2 days everything looked very promising – RPM of $0.2 But after 2 days RPM turned to be $0 and it continued for 20-25 days. I was deeply disappointed by the earnings and the ads that were being displayed. Atleast I had expected some kind of ad relevancy with the content.


When I wrote to their support team they replied on time and they asked me to wait for a month before I could see some results and relevancy of ads. It seems that, their server was still under learning mode!

After waiting for 35-40 days I checked it once again. This time I was satisfied with the ads and I was surprised with the earnings too. It wasn’t very high by the way, but better than what I had expected from an adnetwork other than adsense.
