Does anyone have a viable Adsense alternative? I love Adsense and I am totally impressed but I believe in putting your eggs in different baskets. (I just cashed my first check. $7900!)I registered for the beta Yahoo program but they sent me an email saying that it is not yet ready. Ideas?

It depends on what your site is about. There are a range of alternatives including Chitika of course but that may not be suitable for you. Many sites report it as being highly profitable though.
Also, you could take a look at Affiliate Sensor which may also be too specialist for you - it creates AdSense like ads but they can only be linked to information products sold via clickbank.

I guess you're looking for a system whereby you don't have the sell the actual ads? If you're happy to do the ad selling but want a technology platform which will do Adsense style ad serving on your site (i.e. you get to keep all the click revenues etc.) then I understand Platefood do this (http://www.platefood.com/ - not much to see at the moment...).

There is a long list of AdSense alternatives over at Threadwatch.
From what I've heard Chitika has had some problems and didn't turn out to be as profitable for many as it initially looked like it would be. There was quite a lot of talk about this in fact so much that by the time I had my account set up I was quite put off the idea of using them. I will run a test when I get some other priorities dealt with.

Yahoo (formerly overture) Miva (formerly e-spotting) and Mirago all offer similar products, however Adsense has been a lot more willing to offer their service to smaller publishers in the past. Yahoo and Miva in particular only work with publishers who already deliver significant page impressions.
For smaller publishers Mirago are easier to get onto and offer a higher % of revenues, their integration is a lot more flexible from a design point of view. However, with much fewer ads running the match to your site content isn't as good and prices per click won't have been pushed up as far
I also don't think their technology for detecting page content is as smart as Adsense.
Overall I'd stick with Adsense if you're a small site, but investigate options with the other big networks if you're delivering 1 million plus impressions per month, especially in rich PPC segments like finance of gambling.
