Last time, when I wrote a detailed review of Media.net, many users talked about not getting approval for the Media.net ad network. Most of the applications were rejected& let me tell you, rejection is always disappointing.
Well, it would be wrong to blame bloggers or even Media.net for rejection, as Media.net doesn’t limit itself to only judging website content.Theylook for a lot of factors before accepting or rejecting an application.
Just in case you don’t know, once you get an approved account with them, you will get a dedicated manager who will help you at every stage to optimize your ad placements & settings for generating high revenue.
I’ve never before felt the luxury of having a dedicated manager just for having a publisher’s account on an advertising network.
If you have never applied, or your application was rejected, this guide will help you to understand what criteria they use to accept or reject a publisher’s application.
If you are confident about your site already, you can skip reading & create an accounton Media.net here.
Before you apply, be sure that Media.net is right for you.
Traffic Source- Crucial for earning huge:
For starters, know that one common complaint most bloggers have with Media.net is low revenue.
The primary reason for this is the geo-location of your traffic.
We have already talked about why we have low CPC for Asian countries and this ad network follows a similar pattern. Unlike AdSense, this ad network works wonderfullyfor those websites which receive a high amount of traffic from countries like the U.S.A & the U.K.
However, there is a smart solution for this low CPC traffic & that is backup ads.
If you have an AdSense account or any other ad network account, you can use that to show backup ads when there is no ad inventory for other countries.
How To Get Accepted Into Media.net
Language of your blog:
If your blog’s primary language is not English, your application will be rejected. This ad network (by Bing & Yahoo!) accepts only those websites which are primarily in English.
If you are one of those bloggers who is using dual languages (English + some other language) on your site, I suggest you try applying.
Ensure that the first few pages of your blog showcases only English content. Once you get approved, you should let your account manager know about the dual-language aspects of you page & make it clear that you will be placing ads only on English content pages. (This may or may not work, but what’s the harm in trying?)
