Looking for alternatives to generating revenue only via Google AdSense?

Blogger John Chow has put together an intense list of online advertising options and networks including CPM based ad networks, contextual advertising, popup companies, and affiliate based CPA networks.

[Speaking of alternatives to Google AdSense or Yahoo Publisher Network, Search Engine Journal has just brought in Clicksor as a sponsor. More information can be found out about Clicksor by following the banner to the right of this post.]

John writes:

Google had done an amazing job capturing the internet advertising market with the AdSense product. However, Google is not the only game in town.

As a webmaster, it is your duty to seek out other ways to monetize your site.

As we all know, putting all your eggs in one basket isn’t the smartest thing to do. Yet I have come across countless blogs with no other means of monetization other than AdSense. Even my own blog was running just Google until a few days ago.

    I saw saw this on John’s blog, and I thought about asking him this question. Maybe you can tell me. I see you’re using a few types of advertising on your site. I’m interested in taking on some affiliate sites through LinkShare, but I’m afraid Google will put me out to pasture if there are “competing” ads. Would you think an ad from say TigerDirect would be a “competing” ad? I’ve submitted this question to Google, but have yet to hear back (about 2 days ago).

    I’m not sure, but coincidently or not, a lot of my subpages got marked “supplemental” after putting up some cj links. I would be cautious.
