for me nothing beat adsense or even come close
so better reapply or use some one to apply
First off, I would like to begin by saying that I don't have Adsense. It really sucks, but for unfortunate reasons, I don't have it. I have several sites that rank #1,#2 and #3 for high traffic keywords, but these sites have not been monetized yet.
I am looking for an Adsense alternative. Things have changed in the past few years, and I don't really know how the ad networks are doing for the publishers.
What would you recommend? What Ad networks are you currently using?
Many ways to monetize a site other than crap adsense.
Amazon, clickbank are two alternatives.
Affiliates - Prosperent
Pay Per Click Advertising - In Text Ads for Websites by Infolinks
Plus finding affiliate products that match your site (pain the butt, but well worth the searching).

Isn't Kontera and/or VibrantMedia good? I heard (long time ago) that Will said they were pretty good after Adsense, but still way down the line compared to Adsense.
VibrantMedia is good for large sites. Well that is what I have heard so far.
As far as Amazon / Clickbank, they are good choices. I was aiming at text link advertising, so Infolinks might be a good choice.
Has anyone tried Clicksor?
Try Text Link Ads (text-link-ads.com), you can get paid a good monthly fee for hosting links. As good or better than cracksense IMO but you apply it to individual pages that you think people will want to bid to advertise on.
I earned 2 digits of $ per month for years from 1 link.
Here is the blurb from the TLA site:
Hmm, TLA may now be owned by G. Now I am confused having checked my page.Many Text Link Ads publishers earn thousands of dollars per month. We have thousands of active advertisers looking for relevant advertisements to drive targeted traffic to their websites. Once your site is approved, it will be added to our marketplace within 48 hours, at which time it will be ready for purchase.

But 5starpix said they can't use adsense. And $50 over a year is not so good IMO Less than $1 per week?adsense still is better. infolinks pay too low. I've tried infolinks for over a year and seems like i only got $50.
I dug out mt last payment notification from TLA:
Text Link Ads, Inc sent you $16.80 USD
That is for 1 month on one web page for 1 link and I get it every month like clockwork. My wife will testify
I can confirm the efficacy of TLA, but also mention LinkWorth.com which is quite a lot more flexible, with multiple ad types including automatically rotating "LinkMura" text link ads which seem quite popular. I always considered these types of ad networks a whole different category from adsense, but they do tend to perform better for me. The only issue is that that they're either a gray area or not Google-blessed since they involve link selling (though some of LinkWorth ad types aren't just typical links).
