I will say that you must not rely on AdSense or any forms of ads networks to get rich or worse as your main income stream. I would say that these ads networks serve as another source of income. It supplements your main income and gives you extra pocket money to spend. If you google for AdSense alternatives, you will find many alternatives that you can try. However, my advice is to stay with the ads networks for a few weeks to see the earning that you will get. This is because some ads networks are very slow to update the reports and you may not get real-time updates. I think I will monitor the ads networks for say 2 months to see the effectiveness and quality of the clicks.
The first ads network that I'm reviewing is www.infolinks.com. This is the easiest to apply and put onto your blog. It drives new revenue for publishers with intent-based ads in non-traditional blog places. The ad units are elegant and innovative and fully customized the appearance to add to your blog in 1-minute integration plugins.

There are four Infolinks ad units. They are Inframe, Infold, Intag and Intext. Inframe capitalizes on browser margins with attractive display ads. Infold engages users with an overlay ad unit most relevant to the user's intent. Intag displays a tag cloud of keywords relevant to your content. Intext monetizes inside the lines by highlighting your best keywords. I have activated all four Infolinks ad units. I'm now into my second week and the earning is quite bad. However, I think the main reason is that my traffic is low and even if there are ad views, the ad eCPM is low and earnings are affected. I got only 0.11 for the last 9 days. I think if I can drive more traffic to my blog, the earnings should increase. I will update again at the end of December 2014.
