My opinion: Adsense is undoubtfully the best network of time but it if your site does not meet their requirements you can use Chitika, it work well for sites having the majority of traffic from US & Canada.

I have used this network just for testing purpose and had earned 100$ with them but when its time to pay they have closed my account without any reason, I contacted support and they never replied me back, so only use at your own risk, there are many other alternatives of Adsense in market which are working well like, Taboola, etc you can use them too, if you want.
