When it comes to monetising my website, the first and most obvious choice to go for is Google Adsense. When you say PPC, you say Adsense. However, after using Adsense for around a year now, I feel I could possibly make more money else where with competitors to Adsense. For this reason, I looked at Media.net. Here is my experience with them.
What is Media.net?
What Does Media.net Offer?
- A mentor to help you - When you do sign up for Media.net (which you have to request for and then get accepted), you are allocated a mentor who works for Media.net and helps you with optimising your adverts to increase earnings: something Google has never done.
- Content related adverts - Media.net scans the content of the page to load up the most relevant adverts. This is the typical contextual advert where the advert is only related to the content.
- Search related adverts - A new idea to PPC, instead of looking to relate the adverts to the content of your page, the adverts are related to what the web user searched using a search engine to get to your website. Therefore, if your website doesn't satisfy the needs of the web user from their search result, your Media.net advert might instead.
- New Ad sizes - As well as Media.net having the most common advert sizes for publishers to use, they also have a 600x250 advert that looks extremely good for above content adverts. The 728x90 advert has always been too big to place above content. 600x250 might be the right size for alot of bloggers.
