One of the simplest one is place PPC advertisements on your blog, and you will be paid depending upon the niche, quality of traffic and Advertisement clicks. Out of all advertising network at this moment, Google AdSense is certainly the best, and one of the most criticised one due to their harsh rules. Many bloggers lose hope of making money, once their AdSense account is disabled or not approved, and I have talked about many alternative ways to make money in this article.

Today, I will be featuring which is contextual ad network brought to you by Yahoo! and Bing together, and getting great review from around the globe. It will be too early to call it as real AdSense alternative, as is currently invite based ad network, and any one can request an invite. There are many great things about and one of them is, dedicated account manager, to help you get started and to take care of your account. I will be talking about all this in a moment, but first lets see what is and what is it all about. : Features and Program information is a contextual ad network, that means it serves advertisements based on the context of the page. For example, if you are running ads on your page about dogs, your readers will be seeing advertisements related to dogs/dogs products. Similarly a page about camera will have ads related to cameras and related accessories.

Contextual advertisement performs better than any other ad types (Direct ads), and this is one reason AdSense is so popular. is powered by Yahoo! and Bing, and you will be seeing only high quality and high paying ads. is targeted to small and large publishers, who produce quality content. So even if you have a small blog but with targeted and quality content, your chances of getting approval is high. Here are some of the notable features of ad network:

  • Contextual advertisements: As mentioned above, ad will be showed based on the context of the page.
  • High revenue: Quality of ads are high, and various optimization techniques will help you to make huge money from your ad serving.
  • Mobile Ads: One of the key feature of is mobile ads. This feature is currently in beta, but with the growing number of smart phone users, mobile ads is the future of advertising for publishers. mobile detection technology automatically detects mobile and smart phone browser, and serves mobile ads, which will help you to earn extra.
  • Account manager: There are very few ad networks which offers dedicated account manager, and is one of them. As soon as you get an approved account, you will be assigned an account manager, and he will be helping with setup and getting started. None the less, if you are not one of those bloggers who like to optimize ads (color, text and others), your account manager will do this for you.
  • Neat and clean reporting dashboard: Reporting dashboard is neat and easy to get accustomed with.
  • One account & unlimited websites: If you have one approved account with, you can use the same account to run advertisements on multiple websites. Though, you need to get approval for every website, which is easy with the help of site manager. site Manager

How to get started with

Right now, Yahoo! Bing contextual ad network ( is an invitation based ad network. You can apply for an invite code here, by adding details about you and your website. If you have multiple blogs/website, you can apply for all of them under one account from the same page.

Soon one of their representative will evaluate your blog, and once you are approved, you will be assigned an account manager, and you will receive your login details via Email. To ensure the quality of ads, they do have program policies, and before applying for them, it’s a good idea to refer to it once. Once your application is approved, login to dashboard, start creating ad units for your website and place the code. The process is simple, and if you have used any ad network like AdSense, Infolinks or any other, process is almost the same.

    I use to have for 3 month.
    In first month i earn almost $150 and they add my payment via paypal in 30th , in second month $700 and the thirth $200 because of an issue of my site i lost a lot of traffic.
    The problem is that did’t pay me this 2 month and why..
    A lot of people take email for “low quality traffic” with no other explanations, and they give them 48 hour to fix it. What to fix i don’t now…
    Well in my case they give only 24 hour to fix the problem in 29th. I blocked 80% off my traffic and i let only USA traffic.
    Next monring my account suspented.
    I send email to my manager and in other 2 emails in media and guess what no answer for anyone. Nice scam.
    After that i talk with lot of people, who they got suspend, with that ridiculous email few days before the payment.

      One of my Friends had same issue. Just before the payments he got his account suspended with no reason described in email.
      Not a good business by

  2. Nikki says

    The fact that NO company can actually compete w/ Google suggests to me that they are in cahoots. gets horrendous reviews by publishers for paying so little. Its not like advertisers are not still paying top dollar for ads. They are. Its just that Google has ensured that no one will compete w/ them.

    The CEO of Yahoo Marissa May comes from YAHOO so is it possible that Yahoo is just another arm of Google pretending to be competition so that people wont revolt and demand some action to break up the monopoly? Of course it is. Google better pull it together and treat publishers better or there will be a huge backlash.

  3. says

    As per my experience by using both Google and Yahoo/Bing ad networks. I discovered yahoo/bing network has better RPM rate which result in good revenue, also they provide you an agent with whom you can work directly to optimize your ads and was the first service that got me the best results that I could ever imagine.

  4. Rohan says

    There are few things which are not mentioned in the above article.

    Being a publisher let me share with you guys.

    1. Payout history,information is not available on the publisher dashboard.So you never know up to which date you get paid. I don’t understand other then keeping publisher in dark there could be any other logical reason for not displaying the information.

    2. Minimum payout is $200 which means they will only release your money once you hit $200 mark. Moreover payment cycle is 60 days which means if you made $200 by Jan. 31, 2015 you will get paid in first week of April.

    How has your experience been? We would love to hear about it. In my case, Media.Net does not deliver good rpm. I have a small blog, which gets traffic exclusively from US/Canada etc. It is a very competitive niche (iPhones anyone?) but rpm has been VERY low. So that’s why what do you think ?

  6. says

    I think this should be the best alternatives for those who got banned their Google Adsense accounts. Most of us are getting disappointed by Adsense. Hence,this should be the best choice for those peoples..Thanks a lot sharing useful tips bro..

  7. Piyush says

    Hello Harsh,
    So, the first option should always be the Google Adsense no ?
    and can we keep, Google Adsense and vig links all together on one blog ?

    • says

      Yes, you can use AdSense, and VigLink at the same time. But I would recommend you to use one of and AdSense, as they both are contextual ad program.

  8. says

    They are really nice and I have got approved in my first trial…!!
    I have accounts but I want to ask you Harsh, that do they give two different accounts ads in one blog like Adsense do..??

  9. Nitin mohan says

    medianet is a good advertising network it works on the basis of 1000 impression costs but getting approval is bit tough

  10. Sab says

    I have added medianet to my site and using for almost 2 months . For the first few days the rpm was reasonable around 1$ .. Then soon after 2-3 days the Rpm was decreased significantly and i barely make a dollar in a day for making 5000 impressions .. Strongly do not recommend it and waiting for the minimum pay out to get it undone from my site .. Waiting to hear reviews about Chitika, and Infolinks pays well but annoys the user . So i do not go for Infolinks

  11. Richard says

    We also are happy with I really wonder why other accounts are not getting paid and are getting $0 rpms.

  12. says is the worst network among all. As Tahir said above “after some months they decreasing the cpm day by day”, it’s true. When I accumulated the threshold amount ($100) after 3 months, I disabled ads on my site & used some other PPC programs. They told me that I will receive the payment at the end of month & I waited. It was just two days left for me to get the payment & suddenly they disabled my account without any notice. Right now, I’m using Chitika & is really great compared to Till now I received around $150 within 2 months.

  13. says

    Nice article.
    My AdSense account was banned 2 times, therefore I was looking for it alternative. I found that many people are talking about
    Hence I applied for it, and my account was approved. Currently all I can say is this is the best adsense alternative.

  14. Muhammad Tahir says

    Its true that Media.Net is an alternative of adsense but It is not better than adsense. When I use it, 1st two months of earning were outstanding But after some months they decreasing the cpm day by day. I complained the this issue many times but I didnt find any proper answer. works well only with good US,UK,Canada traffic. Finally its better but not like Adsense.

  15. says

    I also tried on my website and I am just waiting for my first ever payment. ads really go well with the Adsense ads also.

  16. says

    Media Dot Net isn’t that bad. I have been making good money with them for over an year. In an year I have made nearly $700 with Media Dot Net Ads.
