This goes to be my first submit in a collection of posts about completely different Google AdSense alternatives. I don’t have any set schedule for writing about each…principally, as soon as I’ve had an opportunity to strive it out and collect an preliminary opinion, I’ll write about it!
Media.net is likely one of the first locations I utilized after losing my AdSense account, and up to now, it’s been an fascinating expertise. It’s going to be very troublesome to completely exchange AdSense, nevertheless I already imagine Media.internet shall be one in all my prime alternatives. Here’s my in-depth evaluation.
What Is Media.internet?
Like AdSense, Media.internet is a contextual promoting firm – what this implies is that the advertisements displayed in your web site are influenced by the precise content material on the web page, in order that guests will see related ads.
Also, like AdSense, Media.internet pays you for every click on, and the quantity relies on the bidding of the advertisers (in order you’ll anticipate, extra aggressive niches will yield increased earnings per click on).
Different Types of Ads
Just as AdSense has its common advert models and its hyperlink models, Media.internet provides just a few various kinds of advert kinds. Note: Media.internet solely permits you one in all every advert kind per web page.
- Content Ads – These are your customary contextual block advertisements, and you may select from quite a lot of sizes. They don’t have as many measurement selections as AdSense, however the entire extra well-liked sizes are there. This is the kind of advert that I’ve applied on all of my area of interest websites that presently make the most of Media.internet, and from what I’ve heard, this kind pays higher than the others.
- Search Targeting Ads – These advertisements really look the identical because the content material advertisements, with one massive exception: they’re proven to look engine visitors solely, and the content material of the advert is tied on to the customer’s search question. As you may see, this permits very related advertisements to be exhibited to natural visitors, though I’ve heard these advertisements don’t pay in addition to the content material advertisements. I don’t have sufficient knowledge personally but to substantiate or deny this.
- Web Bar – This is an advert unit just like AdSense’s horizontal hyperlink models, besides that it’s positioned on the backside of the display and is “sticky” to stay above the fold because the consumer scrolls down the web page. I’ve by no means been a fan of some of these advertisements since I feel they give the impression of being too spammy, so I’ve but to do this one.
- Mobile Ads – These advertisements are merely optimized for cellular viewing. To be sincere, I’ve but to leap on the “mobile” bandwagon (no pun supposed) in the case of web advertising and marketing. I do know it’s the place the longer term is trending, however for proper now, it’s not a spotlight of mine.
What I Like About Media.internet
In some methods, I really like Media.internet extra than AdSense, though that doesn’t imply I wouldn’t gladly hand over my Media.internet account if it meant getting again AdSense. Here’s what I like, particularly:
1) Decent earnings per click on
This is clearly going to differ by area of interest, however in my previous month of testing Media.internet on a small handful of websites, Media.internet’s CPC appears to be similar to AdSense’s. This might be the largest motive why Media.internet stands out amongst many different contextual promoting alternatives. Obviously, there are numerous I haven’t tried but, however that is my early impression.
2) Ads seem like very “clickable”
Media.internet’s algorithm for figuring out related advertisements along with your content material appears to be very robust, and the design of the advertisements are such that they appear to be a part of your web site’s navigation.
I feel the typical web consumer is so used to seeing AdSense-style advertisements that many have turn out to be blind to them. Media.internet’s advert type, whereas nothing spectacular, is considerably refreshing after seeing 1,000,000 completely different AdSense advertisements. Here’s an instance from the sidebar of one in all my websites within the pet area of interest (I’ve blocked out any figuring out info from the location):
As you may see, the advertisements aren’t “in your face” ads. There is a small snippet of textual content (which isn’t seen on this display shot) on the backside which signifies that that is an advert block, nevertheless it’s not very intrusive.
This is totally unprecedented with Google, so I discovered this to be an enormous optimistic with Media.internet. When you create an account, you’re assigned an account supervisor.
I had one occasion the place one in all my area of interest websites was denied for Media.internet advertisements (extra on this beneath). I contacted the account supervisor to search out out why, and what I can do to get the location permitted, and he replied pretty rapidly with some useful info. He instructed me as soon as I make the required adjustments, I can re-submit the location for approval.
Do you assume anybody at Google would ever take the time to assist with one thing like this? I extremely doubt it.
What I Don’t Like About Media.internet
This is a really sincere and unbiased evaluation, so I’m in fact going to be very open about what I don’t like about Media.internet.
1) Each particular person web site requires handbook approval.
Unlike Google AdSense (which you’ll place on any web site as soon as your account is initially permitted), you need to add every web site individually to Media.internet and it have to be permitted. This normally doesn’t take lengthy (inside 24 hours), however it’s an additional step, and it implies that you need to basically totally construct a web site with out figuring out for those who’ll have the ability to put Media.internet advertisements on it.
2) Media.internet is considerably strict in regards to the websites they approve.
I’m really effective with this as a result of it improves the integrity of Media.internet for its advertisers (which implies, over time, advertisers pays extra on Media.internet than they could on different advert platforms). However, I’ve had a number of websites declined already.
Certain thinner micro-niche websites that may have been effective for AdSense might not work for Media.internet. Specifically, websites which have solely 3-5 pages of content material, like a lot of mine do. I do, nevertheless, imagine that that is subjective on Media.internet’s aspect of issues. I had one web site with 5 pages of content material declined, however a web site with Three pages of content material accepted.
It might must do with the particular person individual who’s manually approving the location, or perhaps they like sure niches greater than others. It can also depend upon phrase depend (and never simply # of pages) – I’m unsure.
Either means, it is a vital hurdle. For my websites which might be presently too skinny for Media.internet (which sadly could be the overwhelming majority of my micro-niche websites), it might be awhile earlier than I take the time to beef up the content material on all websites.
3) Media.internet might not work for each area of interest.
When you submit one in all your websites for approval, you need to choose a class for the location. I feel this step is in place in order that your web site could be matched up with the pool of advertisers for that specific class. Although they’ve loads of classes, I’ve had a pair cases the place a web site didn’t actually match completely in any of the out there classes.
Hopefully for those who’re in the identical boat as me (i.e. no AdSense account), this evaluation will enable you to decide if Media.internet is an effective choice. In most circumstances, I feel it’s an amazing different. I’m very removed from changing my AdSense earnings, however that is extra as a consequence of the truth that proper now I solely have Media.internet on 6 of my 80 websites.

Looking for some assist from anybody who’s been with Media.internet and gotten payouts from them. When do they usually disburse cost? Is it normally the final day or two of the month or usually per week earlier than like adsense? I’ve obtained a considerable cost that I’m anticipating from them and am beginning to get nervous I received’t see it mirrored in my PayPal account as promised this month.
Thanks for scripting this. Got an electronic mail from media.internet however couldn’t actually discover any good critiques on them. Having an precise rep sounds refreshing in comparison with coping with nobody at Google. Even on GAN I don’t have a rep…
I could give it a shot on the location they talked about and see the way it goes. I wouldn’t thoughts dropping Adsense altogether if I might.
Most of my evaluation comes from affiliate however what little I get from Adsense I simply don’t like the concept they’ll drop me at a whim in the event that they really feel prefer it.
Great information. We had been simply solicited by media.internet and needed to be sure that they had been legit.
Used adbrite for a very long time however form of wish to exchange them as a consequence of irrelevant advertisements and low payout.
I’ve a number of websites and Google Adsense banned me with one electronic mail. Now making an attempt Adbrite however it doesn’t pay wherever pretty much as good as Adsense did, so going to strive Media.internet and Infolinks they appear to be the perfect I can discover.
Well articulated evaluation! It’s no shock Media.internet is the one different to Adsense. Microsoft and Yahoo have been making an attempt to know a much bigger slice of the internet advertising market for some time however Google saved shaking them off. They say two heads are higher than one, and that appears to be the case right here.
I discovered that after AdSense beginning altering issues internally our income share has been dropping and continues to drop every month. To date we are able to’t determine why issues are dropping like they’re.
Then comes alongside Media.internet with a private invention. The Publisher Development who contacted me has been emailing me for a few week now with information about this system. But for some motive when she says she’s going to name she by no means does.
So on one hand I’ve Adsense that’s declining and Media.internet that invitations you however can’t hold a telephone appointment.
I took down my media advertisements as a result of there have been too many one cent days when different days are 80 cents to over a greenback.
Also, no response from anybody there about serving to me current higher advertisements.
No customer support in any respect. Went again to adsense for now.
May strive Media once more as they owe me $11 that I’ll by no means see if I don’t earn $100.
I can see now why they set the cost so excessive.
Medianet requires web site with guests from US, Canada and UK. My guests are all from the Philippines. Will I get permitted with this? I wanna strive medianet to match it with adsense. I hope im gonna get permitted quickly.
This info may be very useful so thanks for writing it.
I bought my web site from a man who was already working Media.internet advertisements. He instructed me that that they beat AdSense fingers down, at the least on this web site.
My downside is that I utilized for my very own account 6/10/14 after which once more in July and haven’t heard the very first thing. I’ve emailed a number of instances and tried to name however nobody ever solutions and so they don’t name again after I go away a message.
Can anybody assist me at the least get in contact with somebody there? I do know you stated they’ve good assist however I’m not seeing it in my finish.
I’ve offered web sites to individuals with out accounts earlier than and it was so simple as requesting the swap from the account consultant. I’d ask the vendor to try this for you.
The factor about placing you in contact with somebody is that every area is individually permitted via their vetting course of so that they’ll have to take away approval from his/her account and transfer it over to yours. Without having a 3-way dialog you may not get wherever.
I’ve a really good web site having loads of knowledge nut nonetheless i don’t have any adsence account permitted…
