Affinity Ads Review: Best Adsense Alternative

Everyone knows that Google Adsense is #1 in the online advertising space to earn money through blogs. There are several alternatives to Google Adsense which may not replace Adsense but can be counted-in for adding additional income to your pocket and one among such alternative is the Affinity Ads.

Few Problems with Google Adsense

  • It’s very difficult to get approved by Google Adsense. If you’re from India, China or Pakistan, then it’s like a big deal now-a-days.
  • If approved, there are several ways you can get banned from Adsense such as click frauds, content duplications, piracy etc…

Affinity Ads Review

  • Revenue Share: Unlike Adsense revenue share, Affinity gives 95% to their publisher which is awesome.
  • eCPM: Affinity Ads eCPM is almost similar and sometimes higher than what Google serves.
  • Ad Formats: Affinity has 4 different ad types – In Page, In Footer, In Image, Ad Cloud  and In Text.
    1. Ad Cloud: Affinity displays a tag cloud widget with several tags and when someone clicks on that tag, a related ad is displayed to the visitor in the widget itself. This way, the Ad Cloud shows advertisements based on user’s choice, which is a very unique approach and it has high conversions too.
    2. In-Text: Relevant textual advertisements will be served based on the content on your webpage just like text link ads or Infolinks.

    4. In Image: Advertisements are displayed inside the image at its footer. Ads will be served based on the image information (alt or title).

      Ad Cloud and In-text ads are enabled by default in the Affinity dashboard while the other ad types are to be opted.

  • Loading Time: Although not fast like Adsense, they’re not taking much time to load.
  • Payment: Adsense still issues payments through checks for publishers in several countries but Affinity offers two payment modes – PayPal and Direct bank transfer. BTW, if you’re a non-resident of US, you’ll need to fill out the W-8BEN Form to be eligible for receiving payments.
