Top 5 Alternatives to BuySellAds

buysellads logoGone are the days when the blog used to be nothing more than a personal journal, a way for many internet users to voice their opinions and share their thoughts. Today, blogs are one of the biggest money earning sources for hundreds of thousands of people online. Blogs are a great way of earning money online and some people are earning millions of dollars through blogging!

As blogging evolved, bloggers started looking for advertisers to put ads on their pages. This was a tedious task since it was hard to find someone willing to advertise on your blog. Hence, various Banner Advertising companies came into being to help bloggers and also to earn some money. Once such company is BuySellAds.

What is BuySellAds?

For those of you who don’t know about BuySellAds, it’s one of the top advertising network for people interested in buying or selling advertisements. It has over 2,900 advertisers and provides a good opportunity for bloggers to earn by placing banner ads on their blogs. It works like this. Advertisers wanting to sell their products or services search for blogs that have banner space available. They then make a payment to BSA (BuySellAds) and hence buy an ad slot. Then blog they chose to advertise on gets the payment, minus a commission that goes to BSA (25% of your ad sales).

Why would you consider alternatives?

Why indeed? It looks like a comprehensive package for your advertising business. But the thing is, BSA are very strict about the blogs that can sign up for selling their ad space. They have a list of requirements that need to be fulfilled. And some fellow bloggers have reported that they get rejected even when all the requirements are met. Hence BSA are very choosy about the blogs they accept into their network. Plus, they deduct 25% from your ad sales. In that regard, there are other better networks that allow you to keep more of your earnings.

Some alternatives to BuySellAds

1.  OIOpublisher

OIOpublisher is a great advertising network and perhaps the best alternative to BSA. It works different from other networks. OIOpublisher provides a plugin that can be installed on your site.

  1. Nice collection. Though i believe BSA seems more comprehensive. People are often excited to get approved with the least traffic on their blogs. Even if they are into the program, who would bring them the advertisers?

    Its just like Google AdSense. People get crazy and wish to get ‘approved’. Then they have to sit back for a whole long year to make their first 5$ :). Traffic is smoney. Why not to make Traffic first and then enjoy the fruit forever!

    Nice going dude. 🙂

  2. Yes exactly!. As i mentioned in one of my posts, trying to put up ads from early on can harm your traffic. Most new bloggers who came into the field just to earn some quick cash try to go with that strategy. And hence they lose their credibility

  3. thanx for this post kasim,
    But i want to know that is there any network for low traffic blogs?
    I had applied in advertise space a month ago but no response from them,i know the reason is just the low traffic on blog.
    can you suggest me any network?

  4. i have a wallpaper blog with low traffic almost 100-250 pageviews perday… what will be the best advertiser for such a blog..i dont want to invest any bucks for advertising….and what amount can i make from such blog per month…reply me….thanks in advance and for such a beautiful post.

  5. Nice,
    I used buysellads on the past for advertising but it look very expensive and without any good ROI. I think is better to advertise cheap on multiple websites than in one website with huge pageviews.

  6. Thanks buddy… I was looking for some buysellads alternative, so i found this blog by googling.. I think yo forget to write about, its also a great alternative for small sites.

  7. I recommend you try AddyON !
    AddyON is a powerful Self-Service platform for Buying and Selling on line Ads.
    Developed to satisfy the needs of buyers and sellers, it links Publishers and Advertisers worldwide.

  8. Hi..Nice article. I have queiston for you about Alexa rank and Est Impression BSAI browse BSA publisher and i got details some site with Alexa rank more bigger than other but the Est Impression BSA more biggerExample :Site A. Alexa 70,000. Est Impressions BSA 250,000Site B. Alexa 30,000. Est Impressions BSA (only) 120,000How could like that? Can you explain more details about this?Thankyou

    • Dear! I think you are bit confused between alexa rank and number of impressions of ads. If I am wrong, please excuse me. Let me clarify you. You have a site with lots of visitors. Then the number of impressions are also in good numbers right? But if you have not worked on alexa, then your ranking may be lower. A site with 4000 alexa gets 300000 uniques daily for one of the blogs. If you are referring to this, hope it was clear!

  9. Great list bro! This is what I am searching for. Glad to get it here. I will work out on advertisespace and adsella. Thanks for the share!

  10. I can say from experience that advertise space is hands down the worst advertising network on the web. i have used several of the others recommended, and they have all worked perfectly. But AdvertiseSpace is a sham of a company hosted on GoDaddy on a blacklisted ip shared server, the company does not respond to e-mails, nor open tickets, we signed up for an account with them about 5 days ago. the activation e-mail never sent, so we opened a ticket and e-mailed, NO REPLY to either. then we changed the e-mail address thinking the e-mail was filtered out. WRONG, we tried yahoo mail, g-mail, hotmail, y-mail, live mail, and several different pop 3 accounts. still no activation e-mail. days go by, we send e-mails every day, add comments to the tickets every day, still not reply’s. what a joke, Advertise space is run off a software called buysellads clone from efrahm inc that they bought for $99 and paid to have a template made for. AD BUYERS AND SELLERS BEWARE. do not spend your money or list your ad inventory with AdvertiseSpace dot com !!!!!!!!!

  11. nice collection, but having one querry.
