An alternative to Google's NonSense

Well since I got the boot from AdSense, I'm on the hunt for another way to monetize my blog and website. I came across an ad network called Kontera and their product is called ContentLink.

Like other forms of contextual advertising, Kontera's software is able to crawl the pages of your site and deliver ads that should be of interest to your readers. These ads show up on your site as in line text that is double underlined. When a reader mouses over these keywords, the ad appears.

Kontera does have some qualifying requirements which your blog or website must meet in order to be accepted as a publisher. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure I can't meet the minimum 250,000 page impressions per month at this time. Not sure how strict they are on this, as I have come across other bloggers who put their applications in without meeting this requirement and have still been approved.

Guess for now, I'll stick with AdBrite.

That's nice one information. But why you blog is redirecting to another parked website which is not hosted on the server so yet.
