After you have successfully setup your blog and start getting a decent daily blog traffic, you got many options to turn your blog into a money machine. One of the easiest and widely used money making method is through PPC (pay per click) advertisements. Earning through PPC advertisements depends on your blog niche, number of visitors and clicks made on ad units.
Although, Google Adsense is one of the most widely used ad network chosen by many publishers and advertisers but at the same time it’s not at all easy to get your application approved by Google Adsense. Because of their strict rules and policies, it is also one of the most highly criticized ad networks.
I’ve personally seen many bloggers losing their inspiration and hope because of their Google Adsense application rejection. Some of them even quit to blogging because of not getting Adsense Application Approval or Suspension of their Google Adsense account.
I have already covered some of the best Google Adsense alternatives which you can choose if your Adsense application is not getting accepted. Therefore, today I’m reviewing one of the top Google Adsense alternatives named as Media.net.
Media.net is a contextual advertising network by Yahoo ! and Bing. The term contextual advertisement means advertisements related to your blog content i.e, text available on your website/blog.
Media.net is a good rated popular ad network. Currently, it is an invitation based ad network which means anyone can request an invite. This ad network has some of the most amazing features which can help you to get started with your blog earnings really quickly.
