What do you like best?

This website is really user friendly not really difficult to use. If you are tech savvy, this will be a breeze for you to work. Customer service is always there to help with every step of the way. You will always Receive quick feedback. Usually within a 4 hour time turn around. As anyone receiving service, you truly want the best, and I do believe they are one of the few that offers this. With this helpful tool, your customers or viewer s will feel a little more comfortable on your site because with lots of ads, people tend to look as if there spam baits going on. With that, it could lead to fewer sales and traffic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When it comes to looking at the site, I’m a visual person. This site could have had more content, but this is just a personal preference. Sometimes when it comes to assistance, you may have a few reps working on your submission, which can be a head ace because you can often get them confused with one another. Depending on how complex my order is, I would rather just have one person from start to finish. Also, within your website, of you put more content on it, you could see a decrease in speed. I think this is huge because we all hate going on a site and it seems to not work. People can get quickly frustrated and leave and with that, potentially, you can lose a lot of business. So keep things simple so that your blog/site can work and sell itself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Like all websites, do your research. Just because you assume this will work for you, it may not. So don’t just go to this website thinking it’s going to save you. You could also waste your time doing that. Ensure that you have the budget to also work with this company. The worst thing for you to do is think that all this will be a quick fix for a cheap price. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To not have so much ad volume on my site. They are really helping me minimize to enhance more customer traffic. We all know ads can really make or break your site depending on where you are promoting. Google tend to have a lot of ads, but with the help of media.net, if an ad pops up, your customer won’t leave the site so you will have that traffic as if an ad never appeared. Also, depending on where you have your site advertised at, this could help you get larger pay outs from viewing traffic. There are a lot of great benefits to this: you can simply as a rep to go over it, if they have the knowledge, or you can simply look this information yourself to get familiar with it. The reps also give you more constructive criticism, which could also help you in the future and they were blunt with it. It’s greatly appreciated because a lot of the things you thought were the issue, may not be the case. Try this with an open mind and believe me, we thought we knew it all, but didn’t.

Performance was acceptable but still a good alternative to Adsense. I was getting 7EUR RPM with Adsense and managed to get from EUR2 to EUR4 RPM in the 7 days my account was active... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One day out of the blue I received an email from their compliance team letting me know that my account had been suspended without any explanation at all : ''We understand that you may want more information about the low quality traffic we detected. However, in order to protect our proprietary detection systems, we are unable to provide further details''.

I've been with Adsense for 8 years and after 7 days testing Medianet they suspend me... I got back to their appeal team and sent all documents they asked for but no answer at all... USD400 lost (stolen..). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The simple fact that they supply a collection of advertisements for your site. They have advertisers. The Yahoo Bing system has a substantial inventory of advertisements that keeps it clean and is a win-win for advertisers and publishers alike and is broad. I believe that it could possess a second inventory. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

On the flip side, after your application got accepted, if you employed for Google Adsense, you can place advertisements that you have without having to take permission every time. They make you sign up that you have in comparison to other programs. Compare this. If a single writer, say, possess sites, you'll have to get acceptance for each one of those sites which you have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would strongly suggest Media.net should you get traffic. After you've finished your program using Google, this could be. I must confess that Google is much superior to Media.net compared. If possible, do go. In case you've got many visitors to supply. However, this network comes instant. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I monetize visitors. For users, also, it provided advertisements, apart from that. Then I would say this may be the ideal mix for your site if you have Google AdSense or some monetization platform. Bear in mind; you may always use more than 1 advertisement platform have without overcrowding your website with, to do it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The fact that they provide a large set of ads for your website. They have various advertisers signed up with the network. The Yahoo Bing network is fairly large and have a significant inventory of ads which keeps it fresh and is a win win for publishers and advertisers alike. I think it might have the second largest inventory after Google. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When compared to other networks, they make you manually sign up for every website that you own. Compare that to Google which approves accounts on a publisher level. So if one publisher, say you, have multiple websites, you will need to manually get approval for each of the websites that you own.

On the other hand if you applied for Google adsense, once you application got approved, you could put ads on all the websites that you own and not have to take permission each time for each website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would highly recommend Media dot net if you get decent traffic. This would only be after you have completed your application with Google Adsense. I have to admit that Google is far better than Media dot net in comparison. So do go ahead to Adsense if you can. But this network comes second if you have a ton of traffic to provide. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helped me monetize traffic. Besides that it also provided ads for users. If you already have Google adsense or some other monetization platform, then I'd say this can be a good mix for your website. Remember you can always use more than one ad platform on your website, just need to do it smartly without overcrowding your site with ads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the best that I was approved a media.net account two days after I applied for it. Before media.net I applied for an adsense account numerous times and I was refused its approval. Then I read on the web that media.net is the best adsense alternative. People were saying that media.net gives bigger CPM's than adsense. After I was approved I've got my own account manager at media.net and he was very polite and helpful. Media.net allows you to place three ads on your website. Media.net is good because you get your own account manager that helps you choose your ads, and modify the ads for your website to increase the CPM. Media.net makes an optimisation and this increases the CPM, little by little. What is very good with media.net is that they count correctly the number of impressions that your site gives. No other ads company is as correct as media.net is. I had 200-300 pageviews on my wordpress statistics and media.net gave me 700-800 impressions with 3 ad units.

Media.net has also a premium publisher program. They give you the best adsense ads, together with other ads that makes site to be very beautiful and have the best possible CPM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the media.net payment threshold. it is 100 USD and with 1000 impressions each day you earn on the average 1-2 USD/day. You need two months to have 100 usd in your account. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Media.net is one of the best alternatives to adsense. It is easier to be accepted into this ad network, they are very polite and they give bigger CPM's than adsense gives. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I had a website http://www.show-my-homework.com were I was using the media.net ads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Getting setup with media.net was very simple. With a few minutes of applying I was contacted by my own personal representative. They have been there ever since anytime I have had questions. Compare that to some of the other big ad networks out there and you can see why I really like this service.

The ad rates are reasonably competitive and they always pay on time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The reporting console is still outdated. It is far behind most of it's competitors in this business. If they could update it they would definitely challenge the top ad networks easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use media.net as a backup ad network on my websites and blogs for revenue. They are good as a secondary source of revenue and in case something happens with your relationship with other programs out there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
