Adbrite doesn't come close to adsense. You should try affiliate marketing programs at clickbank, linkshare or commision junction.
It's been a few years now that I have been banned by adsense, I switched to adbrite and there I actually got paid. Now I'm wondering how much better off would I be if I wasn't banned by adsense, what's the difference in income for publishers between adsense and all the others?

My websites are still new, and I'm not getting any real traffic, I'm starting from scratch....This was before, when proxies were still allowed in adbrite that I got paid. Once I start getting some real traffic, if I starte getting real traffic then I'll start looking for the best way to earn money off of it. Do these sites that you suggested allow international users or are only US citizens allowed? I'm not from the US, so I'm asking, I know this was a problem for me before, just can't remeber on what website....
You will also find a discussion here: Best Ad Networks to Monetize Proxy Sites
Adsense is the king of CPC networks. The best part about it is, it doesn't need a large amount of traffic to get approved!
It's very handy to monetize end of page, search, and sidebar etc. And it tunes into your site content to try and get conversions on autopilot as opposed to you trying to match affiliate offers to your expected audience.
If you are relying on AdSense or even an affiliate program as your sole income from a website, than you probably don't have very good business model for your site.
There are other ways of monetizing a website. For example, why not gather leads (let people fill out a form) and then sell those leads directly to companies who need them?
Or, focus your site a bit more on providing a product or service--and sell that directly to people who visit your site, bypassing the affiliate program.
Or, provide an "advertise here" link on your site to an advertising page. Deal directly with people who want to advertise on your site rather than rely on AdSense.

I think a big loss occur due to not use adsense.
