Google's Adsense is one of the most popular website monetization options available today. However, some people have found it to be a bit too uncertain or unsuitable for their tastes and requirements.
Thankfully, there are a plethora of Adsense-like options for webmasters to make money from their content.
Etology has an excellent pool of advertisers to pick from. Site owners are also given a variety of display options from which to choose. These include buttons, banners, feeds, pop-ups and the like. A huge bonus stats-freaks like me find helpful is the real time reporting of earnings and ad stats.
Adbrite is unique. This option lets you set the price for advertising on your website. You also have the ability to review and reject any links that you do not want to show up on your site. For instance, you can block your competition's ads from appearing on your site
Clicksor, while not my favorite, is one of the more popular monetization options. Clicksor is very similar to Adsense. It gives you targeted text and image ads. Like AllFeeds, Clicksor will show you your stats in real time. Payments are made via PayPal or check every two weeks - once you reach $50 in earnings.
