Google Adsense no doubt is the leading PPC(pay per click) advertising company and gives you the highest possible click rates. But the problem is that people underestimate Google Adsense and deal it like ATM machine. They forgot that in order to earn money from Adsense you have to follow some serious rules and regulations and if you not follow Google Webmaster quality guidelines than Google will ban your Adsense account. You may appeal to Google to reinstate your Adsense account but 99% chances are that Google will not lift ban. Also you cannot apply for Google Adsense account again if your Adsense account banned.

Infolinks perhaps the most easy and advanced PPC program after Google Adsense. I have personally use it and found good results. They have very unique inline text based advertisement system which is very innovative and consumes zero advertising space which means you can add one or two more advertising program with them without compromising on you blog design. Payment options include Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard, Paypal and Bank Wire. Best option for Pakistani bloggers is Payoneer Prepaid MasterCard which is directly mailed at your door step once you confirm your account. Payoneer will charge 35 dollars one time card fee from your Infolinks balance. Also they will deduct 2 dollars service charges every month from your Infolinks account. Minimum payout is 50 dollars which is good for newbie bloggers.
AdHitz is a subsidiary company of ClixSense Inc which is very reputable PTC website. The best part i like about this site is that they pay you via Alertpay and Paypal with low payout limit of only 25 dollars. Click rates are also good and you can set your own ad rate price upto 0.11 dollar per click. Site approval process is quick and they process payments on first of every month. Payments than send to your Alertpay or PayPal accounts within 10 days.
Clicksor is another great PPC program which pays 85% commission back to publishers which is very high. Deploying ads is very simply just register a free account and give details about your blog. Click on Ad-setup and choose which type of ad you want to display on your website. Unlike Google Adsense you only have to put one Java Script on your blog and you are ready to go. They have multiple ads format like Text Links, Image Ads, Flash Ads, Animation Ads, Banners, Pop under, Interstitial Ads, Dynamic (DHTML) highlighting etc. They only pay via Paypal, Bank-wire and Check so the payment options are not as good as you like. Minimum payout for Paypal and check is 50 dollars and for wire-transfer is 1000 dollars.
Kontera is another PPC program much like Infolinks inline contextual ads discussed earlier. Kontera is not new in this field and some years ago they were very strict in terms of accepting new websites but now they are accepting even newer sites. Kontera is very easy to use and deploying ads code is very easy. If you have WordPress or Blogger blog than you can install there widgets and no need to add code manually. They pay via Paypal, Check and Wire-transfer. Again minimum payout is 50 dollars for Paypal and check.
Bidvertiser is highly recommend for small blog owners as they provide very similar ads like Google Adsense and very easy to use. Account applications are approved within 24 hours and you are ready to go. Bidvertiser not only provides PPC ads but also if visitors buys any thing via your blog than they will give you additional bonus which is very good. Also they have Revenue Generating Toolbar, XML feeds ads option and very good affiliate program through which you can refer webmaster sand earn commission. They pay via PayPal, Check and Wire-transfer. Payout via PayPal is only 10 dollars which is i think the lowest in the market.
I remember when Chitika was launched lots of hype was created that it is a real Google Adsense alternative but some what they have disappoint us. Initially they were not accepting application from new bloggers but now they have seems to settle down. Chitika ads are very unique and a small image is also displayed along side text links which is very nice feature. Although they accept low traffic sites but i have seen that ads are not available if your blog traffic is low. They have ads options like List Unit, Mobile Code and Pay per call Ads. Chitika pays via Paypal and Check. They also have very low payout of only 10 dollars for Paypal and 50 dollars for Check in the market.
AdBrite give you the power to select which ads you want to display on your site by auto approval or by manual selection. This is the reason that some of your might not comfortable with AdBrite as they have not a verity of PPC ads. You have to set your own ads rate and approve ads too. They give 75 % commission back to publishers. AdBrite has only one payment solution and that is check which is very disappointing. Also you payment will be processes after 60 days means if you have earn your 100 dollar in the month of December you will be paid in the month of March. Payout is 100 dollars for check although you can set lower limit but it will cost your more as banks will deduct 5 dollars from this amount.
Again inline text advertisement system much like Infolinks and normal text link ads. They take 50% commission what you earn so your earning may not be high as you would like. Also they cannot accept each and every site, so make sure before applying that your blog has enough traffic on it. This program can be used with other program and they pay via PayPal only. Payments are sent every in first week of every month. The best thing about Intellilinks payout is that they have no payout limit which is very attractive.
AdBull also provides publishers a great ability to make money from there blog. They have also very easy signup process and accept websites with in 24 hours. The ads are much like text links ads as well as image ads. After generating code put it on your blog pages and ads are instantly displayed. They only pay via check or Paypal and minimum payout for both is 100 dollars which is quite high as compare to others. Payments are eligible to pay after 45 days and paid in the first week on each month. AdBull also have referral program in which you can refer this program to others and earn money.
