You are well aware of Google AdSense and its alternatives. There are a plethora of online sources talking about the best alternative for those who get slapped by AdSense’ unforgiving policy implementation. Here, we feature Media.net, an ad network which can also fill all geographical locations at 100%. It’s not just your ‘next option’ as you could also add it to your existing stack of ad networks to further increase revenues.

A pay-per-click contextual ad network which means, ads are most likely relevant to your users because they are based on the actual content of your web pages. It’s a combination of the Yahoo Bing advertiser network with Media.net’s platform. Here are the pros and cons:
The very first step is to request an invite. Media.net manually reviews every site submitted for policy compliance.
The publisher is notified via email of the result. If approved, you will receive your login credentials along with the approval confirmation (congratulations!). If rejected, they will provide possible reasons in their notification email which include but not limited to:
Any publisher who gets rejected can file for an appeal should you think your site meets Media.net’s program guidelines. Be sure to back it up with credible reasons showing how your site can provide value to advertisers should they advertise on it.
As soon as you receive the login credentials, you may then create the ad units as needed. The creatives are customizable — you could change the color scheme to blend with your site making it more clickable — it’s up to you! Or you could also choose from among the few ad styles already available.
Ad unit creation is very intuitive that even a neophyte won’t get lost. For those with mobile sites, you may choose the ‘enable the mobile option’ and Media.net will display a docked unit at the bottom of the screen which would make you more revenue.
Once all settings are in place, you just save and generate the code — copy & paste the snippet of code in the relevant placement of your site.
The dashboard offers a more granular view of your stats as it allows you to break numbers down by site, by ad units, or overall. You may also choose the date range depending on your need and export to Excel CSV. Again, as previously mentioned, watch out for some delays in RPM & Revenue reporting, although Impressions are always reported real-time.
The threshold is 100 USD for them to issue payment on a NET30 basis. In short, you need to accrue $100 or more before Media.net can send you money. You have the option to either receive it by wire or PayPal.
Media.net is one of the most efficient and easy-to-work-with ad networks out there. It has afforded success to several of our publishers. If you’re interested in getting a comprehensive monetization plan from Media.net, apply here and get an extra %10 revenue for the first 3 months.
