Google Adsense Alternatives: Media.net Review
Before saying anything here, I would love you to note that some top bloggers argued that Media.net is much better than adsense.com in terms of earning, but I would leave that for you to judge.
The Emerging of this network, is the joining together of Yahoo and Bing to create one powerful platform for bloggers to earn Money, which is named: Media.net.
Please note that while displaying media.net ads on your website/blog, you are officially called a “Yahoo Publisher”, so I will be calling media.net publishers, “yahoo publisher” here on this article.
My Experience With and On Media.net
Yes, media.net is a good place to be with, even when I had adsense ads displaying on my website, I was still searching and requesting for an invite.
The truth is that media.net disapproved my account on several occasions, up to 3 times, before learning the scope from my experience which I have also shared below. So you really need to read this post.
Getting an approved google adsense nowadays is not simply anymore, so many bloggers are now opting for the best adsense alternatives online today, and really, I am in full support of this.
Please, don’t wait for adsense to approve your website before earning money online, you can start by using these alternatives and then keep optimizing your websites for adsense team to approve it.
I have also reviewed one of the best Adsense alternative today in the market, which is Chitika
Truthfully, this is ranked among the 3rd best Adsense alternative in the PPC world today, they are also the best RCPM company online today, who pay for impressions you have on your websites, and most importantly, they also pay for clicks.
Currently, as at the time of compiling this article, am using Media.net on my blog, and it’s really making me smile.
One thing you need to note here is that media.net approval team is almost the same with Adsense, they can take as long as 2 weeks to get your blog approved, and one thing about them is that before displaying their ads on another blog of yours, you certainly need to apply with that website again, unlike Adsense where if you get an approved account, you can display adsense on any website of your choice.
Advantage of Joining Media.net/Yahoo Publisher
- Unlike Adsense, you can still earn money, because they pay per impression.
- You can earn money even without having anyone click on your ads, because just like I said above, they pay per One thousand (1k) impression
- You are allowed to display ads on several niches, unlike other Adsense Alternatives, you can get your website Approved by Media and display related ads on your website/blog.
- There are so many advertisers on media.net, so there is never lack of adverts.
- If your traffic is coming directly from top countries like USA, England, UK, Austraila, Canada, etc, you can even earn better per a thousand impression. but the best is to Receive majority of your traffic from United States / Canada / United Kingdom.
- Unlike Adsense, where you must be a premium publisher before having a private account manager assign to you, when your application gets approved, your account manager will email you shortly, and If you encounter any problem, you can email him/her and you will get a reply within 24 Hours+.
- You can display media.net ads alongside with your adsense account and Adsense wouldn’t banned your account. I have been doing this on my blog for months now, so I know what am saying.
Disadvantages of being a Yahoo Publisher (Media.net)
- Unlike Adsense, you must get every single websites of yours approved before displaying their ads on that particular blog.
- Your traffic must be coming from top world countries to earn better from Media, although media.net is trying very hard to get all publishers to earn from their traffic.
- You might get your website banned from displaying ads for “low quality traffic” so ensure you always get good traffic and your bounce rate is normal.
- Media.net do not accept sub-domains, like .blogspot.com, .wordpress.com among others. You must have a .tld, (e.g, .com, .net. .org and your country tld)
