"I would highly recommend Media.net as an alternative for Google adsense"

What do you like best?

The fact that they provide a large set of ads for your website. They have various advertisers signed up with the network. The Yahoo Bing network is fairly large and have a significant inventory of ads which keeps it fresh and is a win win for publishers and advertisers alike. I think it might have the second largest inventory after Google.

What do you dislike?

When compared to other networks, they make you manually sign up for every website that you own. Compare that to Google which approves accounts on a publisher level. So if one publisher, say you, have multiple websites, you will need to manually get approval for each of the websites that you own.

On the other hand if you applied for Google adsense, once you application got approved, you could put ads on all the websites that you own and not have to take permission each time for each website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Media dot net if you get decent traffic. This would only be after you have completed your application with Google Adsense. I have to admit that Google is far better than Media dot net in comparison. So do go ahead to Adsense if you can. But this network comes second if you have a ton of traffic to provide.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helped me monetize traffic. Besides that it also provided ads for users. If you already have Google adsense or some other monetization platform, then I'd say this can be a good mix for your website. Remember you can always use more than one ad platform on your website, just need to do it smartly without overcrowding your site with ads.

"Media.net a good alternative for adsense"

What do you like best?

I like the best that I was approved a media.net account two days after I applied for it. Before media.net I applied for an adsense account numerous times and I was refused its approval. Then I read on the web that media.net is the best adsense alternative. People were saying that media.net gives bigger CPM's than adsense. After I was approved I've got my own account manager at media.net and he was very polite and helpful. Media.net allows you to place three ads on your website. Media.net is good because you get your own account manager that helps you choose your ads, and modify the ads for your website to increase the CPM. Media.net makes an optimisation and this increases the CPM, little by little. What is very good with media.net is that they count correctly the number of impressions that your site gives. No other ads company is as correct as media.net is. I had 200-300 pageviews on my wordpress statistics and media.net gave me 700-800 impressions with 3 ad units.

Media.net has also a premium publisher program. They give you the best adsense ads, together with other ads that makes site to be very beautiful and have the best possible CPM.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the media.net payment threshold. it is 100 USD and with 1000 impressions each day you earn on the average 1-2 USD/day. You need two months to have 100 usd in your account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Media.net is one of the best alternatives to adsense. It is easier to be accepted into this ad network, they are very polite and they give bigger CPM's than adsense gives.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I had a website http://www.show-my-homework.com were I was using the media.net ads.

What Publisher Ad Server solution do you use?

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've been using Media.net on and off since 2011. This is a great tool to use for beginning bloggers or those just looking to monetize but don't have the page views yet. They will work with you to get everything set up just right and answer any questions you may have. Its really easy to just log in, submit the site you need to approve, and start building the features you'd like to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I’ve been able to find extra opportunities to make an income.

"Great Secondary Ad Network"

What do you like best?

Getting setup with media.net was very simple. With a few minutes of applying I was contacted by my own personal representative. They have been there ever since anytime I have had questions. Compare that to some of the other big ad networks out there and you can see why I really like this service.

The ad rates are reasonably competitive and they always pay on time.

What do you dislike?

The reporting console is still outdated. It is far behind most of it's competitors in this business. If they could update it they would definitely challenge the top ad networks easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use media.net as a backup ad network on my websites and blogs for revenue. They are good as a secondary source of revenue and in case something happens with your relationship with other programs out there.

Media.net is contextually relevant and highly targeted that other ad networks. This ensures that your target sees the ad in a contextually relevant environment and is therefore more likely to resonate with your ads and trigger action behavior.

Contextually relevant ads, dedicated account manager, native ads and custom sizes makes this ad network a preferred ad network.
