Increase Your Google AdSense Earnings with Revenue-Share Plans

It’s a brand new year and we know how quickly technology changes. If you are trying to earn consistent income by making money from your online activity, then there are only two words you need to remember. Keep Up!!

I found these 4 links that might give hope to those who have not been approved for or were banned from Google AdSense.

Some say if you have been approved for Ad Sense, then these other companies are not alternatives but rather complements. That is to say, they can be used along with your Google Ad Sense advertisements on your websites or blogs, and you can earn revenue from both. However, if you were not approved or have had your Ad Sense account terminated, these are definitely viable alternatives.

Can Bloggers Make Money Without Google AdSense?

I do have an approved Google AdSense account and my earnings trickle into my account from two primary sources.

  1. From my stand-alone websites and blogs.
  2. From sites that allow me to publish content which offer a revenue-share plan.

Based on my experience, Number (2) should be credited with being the most profitable method of earning from AdSense. Why? Most of the time the sites that offer a revenue-share plan, also get fairly decent traffic to their sites. The traffic to these sites is far better than the traffic to my own sites.

Good Site Traffic → Better Ads → More Opportunity for Revenue Generation.

Had I known about sites with revenue-sharing plans (and had they existed) when I made my decision to become a blogger, about 10 years ago, I would have joined them before trying to publish stand-alone blogs. In addition to the revenue-share incentive, the owners/editors and the community of fellow bloggers have been very supportive.

Here is a quickie overview of sites with Ad Sense revenue-share plans.

  • Daily Two Cents has a 75/25 split. This basically means that if 4 visitors land at one of your posts or articles, 3 of those visitors will likely view ads coming from your AdSense account. One of the visitors will see ads from the DTC site owners account.
  • DTC’s partner site, Writedge, has the same revenue-share plan.
  • BlogJob is another site with a revenue-share plan. Their split is the opposite of the two previous sites mentioned. Your ads will be shown 25% of the time. That means the site owners ads show up 3 out of 4 times. Complain about it? Why? There are no hard and fast rules about revenue-sharing. Each site owner makes you an offer. You take it or leave it. I took it! 25% of $1.00 is 25 cents. It adds up. Cents can turn into dollars.

Two more sites that have a Google AdSense revenue-share plan are:

With the exception of HubPages, for all of the other sites, you simply need to access your own Google Ad Sense account to check and see the amount of earnings that can be attributed to your participation in the site’s revenue-share plan.

HubPages handles the revenue sharing differently. To use the site owner’s own words, taken from their blog post about the HubPages Ad Program: “Your earnings are ultimately dependent on the amount and quality of the traffic to your Hubs …”

The main goal of writing content at this site to get your Hubs featured. They have to pass a “litmus test” and quite frankly, I am not certain as to what it takes to make the editors happy.

I can tell you that my account shows 20 articles and only one of the articles is not featured. If your Hubs are not featured, they won’t be indexed, meaning the search engine won’t find them. Sort of. It’s your Hub. You know the URL and you could try manually submitting it to a search engine.

In my case, most of my Hubs are featured so I can sign in to my account at any time and view the earnings. The minimum cash out is $50 and the payment is sent automatically to my PayPal.

The minimum cash out for Google Ad Sense is $100 and they send the payment to your bank.

One final crucial point to be made that can’t be disregarded or overlooked is that the use of ad blockers has interfered with the earnings potential of many sites. However, ad blocking, though a related topic, is a completely different matter which, if you are interested, has been thoroughly addressed in a March 2018 article by StopAdBlog: The Real Effect Ad Blocking Has On Advertisers And Publishers.

Hope you found the information provided in this post informative.

    Such a nice post! It opens new doors for earning online with Adsense other than your own blog! I want to definitely try these websites. Thanks for sharing

  2. Jeanette S. Hall

    Think I tried it and never saw a single cent. Gave up on it as a bad idea. Was probably doing something wrong, like normal. So please DO NOT take my experience to heart!

  3. JoeHx

    I use AdSense on my blogs. I’ve never heard of the revenue-sharing methods. It seems to be a interesting way to use the platform!

  4. Ryan Biddulph

    TF this is a sharp scientific breakdown here 😉 GA can be profitable if you get clear on earning through the stream. Seeing it as a ways and means of helping folks is the starting point. Most bloggers wish to earn through the stream but few see it benefiting readers. Seeing your helpful, fact based post inspires me to frame GA differently. Thanks for the rocking share.

    Hi Janice,
    Good to reaTreathyl wonderful share on monetization. Indeed a worth notable post on the subject. Though I am an adsense account holder and the meagre earnings from it is sometimes upsets. But good to know about the Hubpage Adsense connection and the options for earning more via adsense. indeed a good post to follow. I am already an account holder since many years at Hubpages but sad to note that I am an inactive account holder since many years, now I know the seriousness, and feel sorry for it, I just opted for that option and my AdSense account is registed successfully.
    Thanks Treathyl for this great shout out.
    Will expecting more from you in the days ahead.
    Keep writing
    ~ Phil

    I haven’t done any advertising on my blog as I try to keep it clear off of ads. But your explanation of the various ways to make it with absence is enticing. I will have to look into it keenly.

    Thank you for sharing.

  7. Vyvian Chacon

    Hi Treathyl, a lot of good information on revenue sharing sites. I have an account on Hubpages for over 10 years, but it’s practically dead. I never made a penny when I was active plus I had an issue with google adsense. Couldn’t get into my adsense acct because I had a different email address and phone #. And I also think I didn’t had the patience for it. Anyway, thank you for sharing your knowledge.

    Janice, I appreciate this opportunity to publish a guest post at your blog and share my experience with others. My blogging experience goes back several years. Even though there have been many changes over the years with SEO, Ad Block, new social media platforms like Pinterest, etc. that have reduced income generation from Google Ad Sense, it is still a tried and true method for monetizing your websites and blogs. IMHO.

  9. rudraksh sharma

    Your explanation is great. It’d really help me a lot. I will keenly look into this to improve my website ranking.

    Hey, there Treathyl ! Long time! Just wanted you to know that not all countries have the same AdSense payout amount. Here in Israel it is NIS 400, which is actually less than $100. Oh, and another thing, I can’t get my AdSense ID to stick on WriteEdge. If I had the time and energy, I’d get back on Daily Two Cents and WriteEdge. Maybe some day!

    • Treathyl Fox

      Totally understand you and many from other non-US countries have had similar Ad Sense experiences. Glad you mentioned this as it is a very important point. It’s good to see you too! 🙂

  11. Stefan Alexander

    Really good stuff, here. It is important to know that Adsense and alternative rely on you having a big enough audience that can be monetized. Unless that is the case, there is not much money to be made. That being said, Google Adsense has made it possible for many bloggers to thousands of dollars over the year just by sharing valuable content online. There is no doubt about that. And using other ad networks alongside Google Adsense is a great idea. You can definitely maximize the profit that way.

    No doubt, AdSense is one of the most popular Ad networks that bring hope for newbie bloggers. I’m also one who got approval in 2015.

    A few months later, my Adsense got suspended for invalid clicks. But I got it back again within a month.

    I could be lost AdSense forever. But hopefully, I got it back.

    And AdSense alternatives play a big role when it comes to monetizing your content.
    Thanks for sharing this valuable content.

      Hi Shailesh,
      Google Adsense is the most popular way for bloggers to try to monetize through Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising.
      I’ve heard many stories like yours. A blogger gets an Adsense account, but the account is suspended due to lack of traffic. Then they get the Adsense account back when traffic resumes.
      I’m glad you got your account back and you’re happy now. Thanks for writing to tell us about your experience with Google Adsense.
