Earning from blog could be tough sometimes when you don’t know what you are dealing with. There are various ad networks that you can join, but all of them don’t work the same way.
When we talk about Ad Networks, Google AdSense is the first ad network everyone wants to join. Getting approval from Google Adsense is not a hard nut to crack, but some users get their Google Adsense Account Banned due to various issues. Whether you are running Adsense or not, you can use some other Ad Network to Boost revenue. Adsense is basically a CPC Ad Network that pays based on Ad Clicks.
Why to join CPM based Ad Network?
If you realize that you you get many ad impressions, but fewer clicks, then you should certainly consider CPM Ad Network. If the CTR (Click Through Ratio) is high, nothing can beat Adsense. CPM Stands for Cost Per Mile where Advertiser/Ad Network pays for each 1000 Impression their ads get. Some Ad Network allows to set your own CPM rate, and some don’t.
Note : If you already Run Adsense, and joining other Ad Network that deals in Google/Double Click Ad Exchange Program, please don’t serve more than 5 Ad Banners each page, else You will get Banned by Adsense. Among five Banners, Maximum of 3 Ad banners can be served from Adsense.
Top CPM Based Ad Network
Getting Approval from BuySellAds is quite tough, and it’s not about because of Visitors Count. I have seen sites getting approved even with less than 50K Visitors each month. However, you must have a clean design, original and regularly updated content. If you already have so many ads on your Blog, try taking them off for a couple of days when you apply for BuySellAds. Once you get the approval/rejection mail, you can adjust the ad back. Try your luck submitting your site for approval.
BuySellAds is the best CPM Ad Network you can use, because you are allowed to set your own CPM rates, and they can also serve Ad Exchange ads on your unsold inventory if you want. So you get the best fill rate in the industry.
