Top 6 Ad Networks for Publishers

Hey there this is Ali Khan here, in this article I am going to mention some of those ad networks that are going to help bloggers and website developers, mainly newbies, to earn from their blogs and websites sitting in their home.

Note that every blog has its own way of making money, some of the websites I will write about below will work for some blogs while they won't for other blogs. It also depends on the content of the blog and the ads provided by the ad networks.

But in the end its all about the targeted traffic. If the content helps, it will sing.

Top 6 Ad Networks for Publishers

The best way to earn through blogs and websites is by advertising on them using ads. Once you get acquainted with the layout of your website, the best thing is for you to do is to create ad spaces. Once you do that you can start looking for ad networks that will give you ads to serve on your website.

The list of the ad networks I was talking is as follows:

1# Google AdSense - Make Money Online through Website Monetization

Google Adsense is, by far, the best in contextual advertising on the web. You can search any ad networks recommendations on the web, you will see Google Adsense at the top of the list, every time.

Google Adsense publishers have too many success stories, even now there are publishers who earn upto 40,000$ per year from Google Adsense.

Google Adsense has the largest variety of ad networks due to which every keyword gets some ads behind it. They have the second largest variety of ad unit sizes. The best is Chitika though in ad unit sizes, the reason is below in the Chitika section. Google adsense gives ad units not only to its users for websites and blogs, it also gives ad units for feeds, domains and search engine's search results.

They have opted out of ads for feeds since July 26th, 2012. But they have started different other features like responsive ads.

Responsive ads

Responsive ads are ads that can be placed anywhere within a website. These ads check the available width and display the biggest ad unit that can be placed within these limits. These type of ads are quite useful as they are useful for responsive websites, that have different page sizes for different pages. Also they display appropriate ad sizes for mobile users.

eCPM for Adsense ads is between 0.01-3.2$, this is just a value that I calculated from serving ads on different sites.

Site Details:

Category: Search Engines & Portals
Domain Authority: 98
Page Authority: 87
Website Rank Global: ~1st
Website Rank USA: ~1st
Monthly Traffic: ~3.5 Billion Unique Visitors
Biggest Traffic Referrer: Youtube (~7% of Traffic Share)
Backlinks: ~3.3 million
Percentage of Traffic from USA: ~27%

2# Chitika | Online Advertising Network

Chitika is also a contextual advertising ad network like Google Adsense, but it doesn't offer income from clicking ads, it supports giving revenue only for impressions on ads. Chitika is a CPM (Cost per thousand impressions) based ad network.

Since a lot of people have been complaining about their google adsense accounts been closed down and their money not being given back to them. Chitika is more recommended then Google Adsense.

However the eCPM for Chitika is quite low. Almost 0.0001$-0.5$ for most ad units. This is only helpful if you have thousands of pageviews. However, it also depends on the niche of your website. The content decides a lot about the ads you get. And the revenue that follows with it.

Also getting an account in Chitika is much more easier then in Google Adsense. The best part of it is that Chitika gives ads relevant not only to the context of the web page, the ad is placed in, but also relevant to the search keywords used by the visitor for coming to that website.

It also has a unique profile for every visitor, with the help of which it displays ads related to the interest of the user itself, apart from the ads given by the context of the webpage or blog post.

Chitika has a huge variety of ad units, even more then Google Adsense since ad networks tend to prefer it as compared to adsense because it allows lower budgets. It was my second best option to try Chitika which eventually turned out to be the best for me and my blog.

Chitika's ad unit size can be adjusted, if you use Chitika Premium, you can choose any number of ads to display along with the width of the ad unit.

Recently chitika has become strict with publishers who do not own a custom domain. Custom domain (like www.yourwebsite.com) is necessary now to apply for the chitika publisher program.

Category: Business
Domain Authority: 74
Page Authority: 61
Website Rank Global: ~65,000th
Website Rank USA: ~68,000th
Monthly Traffic: ~120 thousand Unique Visitors
Biggest Traffic Referrer: Google (~15% of Traffic Share)
Backlinks: ~7000
Percentage of Traffic from USA: ~13%

India is the biggest traffic referrer to Chitika with 29% of traffic coming from India. Chitika is ranked ~11,500th in India.

3# BidVertiser - Direct Advertising Network

Bidvertiser is also a contextual advertising company that has been in this business for a long time. Bidvertiser is somewhat customizable as compared to other ad serving websites. You have to supply the keywords and category of your website yourself to Bidvertiser. Unlike Google Adsense and Chitika, who get these things themselves. Bidvertiser is actually an affiliate ad marketing website.

You don't get paid for a click, instead you get paid for people clicking and then doing some particular task on the opening ad which is termed as "interacting". This is a bit difficult as it sounds but it becomes easy as your websites get more targeted traffic.

Bidvertiser gives payouts of even 10$ through Paypal.

Category: Advertisement and Pop-ups
Domain Authority: 88
Page Authority: 71
Website Rank Global: ~50,500th
Website Rank USA: ~57,500th
Monthly Traffic: ~105 thousand Unique Visitors
Biggest Traffic Referrer: Google (~19% of Traffic Share)
Backlinks: ~40,000
Percentage of Traffic from USA: ~13%

4# BuySellAds: Advertising Solutions for Publishers and Marketers

Buy Sell ads is a relatively new ad publishing website, founded in 2008, as many new bloggers have rushed to it because of its new features. Buy Sell Ads (BSA) turned out to be great for bloggers that were not earning great amounts from Google Adsense and Chitika, because Buy Sell Ads is simply about selling and buying specific ad space, either that may be a 125*125 ad unit, or bigger.

However, now they have new policies which includes that websites having less than 500,000 pageviews monthly are less likely to get approval.

Category: Business
Domain Authority: 67
Page Authority: 44
Website Rank Global: ~49,000th
Website Rank USA: ~23,500th
Monthly Traffic: ~137 thousand Unique Visitors
Biggest Traffic Referrer: Google (~14% of Traffic Share)
Backlinks: ~2,000
Percentage of Traffic from USA: ~33%

5# AdRecover - Monetize your Adblocked Inventory!

AdRecover is also relatively new and gained much popularity after it make ads show up for users using the adblock app. AdRecover not only disabled adblock for its ads but also continues to do so. See the picture below:

This helped AdRecover to get a lot of initial publishers after which they had to change their policies. Now AdRecover requires its publishers to have atleast 500,000-1,000,000 pageviews monthly to get approval.

Category: Business

Adrecover is not well ranked in the US. Most of Adrecover traffic is from countries like India(37%), France(15%), Romania(15%), Pakistan(5%), Indonesia(1.7%), etc.

6# Propeller Ads – Display and Mobile Advertising Network

Propeller ads is UK based ad network. They don't have any prerequisites for new publishers. Websites with any amount of traffic can apply and be ready for ad serving.

They have high eCPM rates from 1-8$ but this is different for sub-continental publishers where eCPM has even dropped to 0.01$.

Recently they have stopped giving banner ads and are concentrating on popunders. Popunders are quite popular now a days because of their high eCPM rates. Also one popunder per page does give a high CTR.

Website Rank Global: ~8,000th
Website Rank USA: ~30,000th
Monthly Traffic: ~900 thousand Unique Visitors
