Hi All,

Things are still pretty grim in my "shop. I just wondered if people who have got rid of the big G's ads - or cut down their placements mightily - would be interested in sharing in this thread a who they have shifted to and how that's going?

I mean I have seen several posts here and there but no separate specific thread.

So...if folks are interested, then, I'll start. After the January 22 2018 through the floor drop of the payouts from Google (consistent 70% drop year over year - traffic still pretty constant) We removed some of our placements from G and put them over to media.net and Sovrn (Meridian.) Media net did for us what a few people here mentioned they experienced; media net performed fairly well for the first couple of weeks and then the payout fell through the floor. Again, traffic is stable.

The upshot is that we have Google Adsense, Sovrn, and media net running now (in addition of course to direct sales) and a very few number of affiliate placements.

Anyone else want to share? At this point the plan is to move most of the placements we have w/media net to some other third party. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your consideration/replies.

Best,

Unshiny

No matter how low Adsense is, I never found anything paying more. Also, other ad networks, seem, at some point to resell Adsense ads. When I tried media.net, half of ads being served, where from Adsense. I guess they have their own adsense account, or special partnership. But without earning consideration (!), I think that media.net seems to most interesting alternative. But I was not lucky with.

I've reed some suggesting the eBay affiliate program, but I never had a look at it. Also, at a time there was Chitika, but I no longer read about them.

The thing is, now, when looking at alternative ad networks, their GDPR compliance has to be studied. And lot of ad networks are NOT GDPR compliant.

Media.net is the only thing that comes close, and it's not all that close. I worry about them, though, since they seemed clueless about the Chome filter update.

Media.net

I just checked their site, and thre is not a single word about GDPR which is worrisome too. I discovered they were acquired by a chinese group, for $900 millions! but it was some years ago, and it looks like all froze since...

I tried media.net after the ad balance tool came out in AS. I think I had 10 clicks worth 50 cents after two days and decided it was MUCH better for my user experience to show blank spaces or my own stuff for those 20% of impressions I wasn't giving AS. Admittedly, I was giving AS all my prime market in Europe/N.America/SE Asia so I expected the media.net numbers to be bad, but not that awful.

I think you mean that you used media.net as back up ads, isn't it?

But if so, it means that you added the media.net code into a blank page that you are hosting, and this page is displayed within an iFrame, when Adsense has no ads to serve, right? So, media.net can't know on which page , these ads are effectively being served. They only know the URL of the iFrame, so if they parse the referring page (the iFrame) , they'll just get a blank page, with their own code on it, so how can they target your content if they can't tell where the ads are being shown ? I don't know if I am clear.

I assume that, like for adsense, media.net code needs to be inserted directly into page with content, and they'll serve ads based of the content of this page. No ?

Also, I can't find information about cookies used by Media.net.
