Adbrite & Adsense on Same Web Pages : Higher Income Alternatives

Have you considered Adbrite as an alternative income source for your blog in addition to Google Adsense. Adbrite is very different from the Google adsense you see around several websites.

Adbrite is Simple.
Use AdBrite to set your own ad rates, and approve or reject ads that are purchased for your site. AdBrite enables you to instantly sell ads to your visitors via a "Your Ad Here" link, in addition to selling through AdBrite's marketplace and sales team. The income earned is split 75/25 in your favor. Just place a small mall snippet of HTML placed on your site, and they take care of ad serving, scheduling, billing, customer service, and sales.

There was a lot of forums reporting that adbrite could not be placed alongwith Google Adsense ads as it violated Google Adsense policies.
"We do not permit Google ads or search boxes accessing Google search services to be published on web pages that also contain what could be considered competing ads or services. If you have elected to receive contextually-targeted Google ads, this would include all other contextually-targeted ads or links on the same page as Google ads. This would also include ads throughout the site that mimic Google ads or otherwise appear to be associated with Google on your site.

Although you may sell ads directly on your site, it is your responsibility to ensure these ads do not mimic Google ads. If you have elected to receive Google search services, this would include other search services on the same site and non-Google query-targeted ads. We do allow affiliate or limited-text links."
Webmaster World has an extensive discussion on the issue and they came to the conclusion that Adbrite works with Adsense.

Quoting Adbrite
"While AdBrite can provide publishers with more revenue and better ads than traditional ad networks such as Google AdSense, we work fine along-side them as a simple way to generate additional ad revenue by selling ads directly to your visitors -- something the other ad systems don't do.

If you're using AdBrite in addition to another ad network, you can turn off AdBrite's "run-of-network ads" and AdBrite will only display ads that have been approved by you. If you have no ads running, AdBrite will display nothing but "Your Ad Here", so no real estate is wasted and you have nothing to lose."
Google Adsense probably pays the most. But Adbrite is a good alternative - its just that you have to wait for sponsors, unlike Adsense. Adbrite works with Adsense, but remember to use the option where you directly sell ads and not display contextual network ads.

I recently installed Adbrite (Look at "Your ad here" on top of sidebar) on this blog - and am still looking for advertisers!
