Undoubtfully there is no true alternative to Adsense except Media.net which at least comes near to Adsense in term of payments. Media.net is premium Ad network working only with Quality publishers, most of their publishers belong to US as they focus mainly on US, UK & Canada Market, here we have compared Adsense with Media.net to give some important insight about both networks.

It seems that both networks are fair enough to use so which one you should choose?, Adsense, Media.net or Both, probably both if you got approval, Media.net will help you to get some extra bucks from your content, you can put Media.net ads under content and Adsense ads at any other suitable place, it’s enough to have one Media.net ad unit for most of the sites.
Tip: You can also use Taboola for Native Advertising.
You will find hard luck to get approval at first try unless you have very high-quality site so don’t worry about that and focus on your site, one or another day you will receive email from a company if your site got some value in online market.
I myself use Adsense as mainstream for monetization, no one can beat Adsense so what do you say?, will you use Media.net as a primary ad network or secondary?, let me know in comments.
