An Alternative to Google Adsense – media.net

media.net

Around the time I applied for Google Adsense, I applied for media.net as well. I wanted to see if it was difficult to get approved. In four days, I was approved by media.net. 

What is media.net?

media.net is a Yahoo Bing contextual (relevant) ad network that gives you access to keyword-targeted advertisers and you place ads into your website.

It depends on how much work you put into it, where and what size your ads  are placed, how much audience visits your website and how much advertisers are paying, which varies. There’s a way to keep track of how each ad size is performing and you can edit as needed.

Final thoughts

So I have had Google Adsense and media.net for about a month now. When I compare what I have earned, media.net outcompetes Google Adsense by X6.

In my opinion, I think media.net is more organized because they have an algorithm where they scan individual pages and place relevant ads in the page. Google Adsense does not do that.

The revenue displayed on the media.net dashboard is less confusing compared to Google Adsense. There is 4 areas: Year to date, Last month, This month and Last processed day. I think that is pretty simple to comprehend, which is great.

Under “Reports,” you can see how many impressions, RPM and estimated revenue received each day, which shows you in detail of the amounts you have earned. Also, you can select more detailed revenue by selecting, “Entire Account”, “By Sites,” or “By Ad Units.”

I have read that ads with image and texts does better, but in my personal experience with this month, that doesn’t seem to be the case. It looks like ads with relevant text is better. However, I am working on getting ads that display image and text on media.net, so I will update you and let you know what the results are.

If you got denied for Google Adsense, media.net could be an alternative for you. I didn’t have to apply twice like I did for Google Adsense. After a few months of adding more content to my website, I re-applied and Google Adsense approved my application.

When you get approved, you get an email by media.net that contains you Log in username and password. You get a second email  welcoming you to media.net and an actual person you can contact if you need help with anything. There is an email and a phone number. I think that is pretty cool, because in order to succeed in a business, we need a little help sometimes.

I saw the welcome email, but didn’t read the whole thing. I just read it a month later and what I had a question on would have been answered. Oops, my bad. Anyway, lesson learned. Read the whole email next time, so you don’t miss anything important.
