Does anyone use Sulvo as an Adsense alternative? It is working well for me. Thoughts?

I just looked them up on Alexa.
It looks like they peaked in December, but recently dropped way down to the level they were at 1 year ago.
Big flash, followed by bigger crash.

I expect my PPC providers to have a higher Alexa rating than I. Not so, with Sulvo.

Are they going to be like Media dot net, who starts out paying high, and quickly fades away?
We need a few more data points here.

I'll wait, thank you. There is so much bull associated with PPC, it is not good jumping on
every new bandwagon, after having done so, so many times. Great for early adopters maybe, but not for me.
Show me the money.

1. India-based
2. Don't tell you minimum requirements, just want to harvest your data from submitting?
3. 25MM page views required for their "$500 offer of higher payout."
3. Big on video - I don't EVER want video ads.
4. Seem undeveloped - not much to click on their site.

I just noticed this !
On their homepage at [sulvo.com ]

Earnings Last Month - $264,471 (Nov. 2016)
Month-to-date - - - - - $15,180 (thru Dec. 29 !)
Looks like the account lost $250,000 in December.
This is a WEIRD example to use.
SOMETHING has been doctored here, and not very well.

Yesterday (12-28) shows $6,764, and the month is $15,180? HUH?

Notice also the graph distortion between Mobile and Desktop.
Does the slope change so radically for other sites?

I didn't think they were India based. I was under the impression they were out of Las Vegas. Where do you see India?

Sally Stitts has a good analysis. I wouldn't try Sulvo.

ps: we need a forum to discuss about Media.net

Hi Nefarious,

I don't know where I saw that. Somewhere. I'll look some more.
I just checked again, and I could not find an "About", or "Contact" link on their site.
It is VERY apparent that they do NOT wish to reveal their whereabouts ANYWHERE ON THEIR SITE.
Which is bizarre. I have never seen that before. Stands out as obvious obfuscation.
How bad can it be? Moscow?
Weird.

... I mean, it says right on LinkedIn that both the company and CEO are based in Vegas.

Anyways, I volunteer as tribute. I signed up and will post results as they happen.

Evan S, that's what I thought. As for results, they've already paid me on time and in the amount of $550+

The first payout takes awhile but then it is every month. Income seems extremely consistent and your Adsense is well integrated as a backup.

Two days in so far and the results are excellent. I use Adsense as backfill and set very high price floors. So far it's doing about 40-50 percent of what Adsense is with very little drop in Adsense page RPM. I'll add this to my recommended list.

Evan are you saying it earns less than Adsense does?

Evan, tell us more! What's your fill rate for tier 1 geos? Any metrics on how the new stack affects pageload times? Mobile/desktop performance?
Would really appreciate it. So far I've tested more than 10 networks, and none could beat my adsense performance, not even close.

anefarious: So far yes but at the same time I'm only three days in. How did you get it to beat Adsense?

Lucky: at about $1.80 per ad unit it's generally around the 15 percent range. No option to filter for device/platform in the dashboard.

I'm not sure if it beats Adsense, although I think it is close. I'm a bit overwhelmed with data and comparisons. It's not that easy to compare because Sulvo, for example, doesn't have a 100% fill whereas Adsense does, basically. It is hard to compare (especially when you have lots of projects going on).. gotta focus better!

Based on a chart (last 30 days) it looks like I'm getting an average of 2.25 eCPM

Update on Sulvo is that for some reason the CTR tanked in my top ad unit (Adsense backfill) when used above the fold. When using Adsense directly it's much better. But with lower Adsense units it's far more effective and combined income is higher.

1. Ok so how is it performing now?

2. Have you been paid yet?

3. Whats the difference between before with only adsense and after with sulvo plus adsense backfill?

Thanks.
