I mentioned a little while ago that I was going to test out monetization using Coinhive. Well, it was an interesting concept, but in practice it really wasn't that profitable. Even when I tried setting it to auto-run in the background, it just wasn't worth the effort. I've decided to ditch that completely.
That being said, I have found a new advertising service that so far seems to be generating numbers I used to see when I was using Google Adsense years ago! Before this, the only advertising service that made me any kind of money on a monthly basis was Amazon CPM ads, but they removed Bauer-Power's eligibility too. I just don't get it!
Now, at the end of 2017 and going into 2018 I've found a Google Adsense alternative that is really generating some numbers for me! It's called The Monetizer!
Check out their video:
Here is the reporting of my earnings since I started using their ad service at the beginning of December. My highest earnings day I made $4.41, which may not sound like a lot, but on my best day with Amazon CPM, I only made $0.71!
These are way closer to what I remember I would see near the end of my Google Adsense run, and so far I am really excited about it!
At the time of this writing, I've already earned over $30 in less than a month. That is over half of what I earned in a year with AdBuff!
There is a catch with The Moneytizer though. You can't just add any old website.
From their FAQ's:
- You must be the owner of the website (or in charge of its monetization). You need to place our ads.txt file at the root directory of your website as a proof that you are the owner of the website (more information here)
- If you are hosted on a blog platform, you must get approval for displaying external ads.
- In order to guarantee the quality of our offer, we deny access to The Moneytizer to any website with content we consider inappropriate (ex: website with illegal downloading, streaming, peer to peer, adult content, racist, extremist etc.)
- Your website must attract at least 10 000 unique visitors per month and the main part of your trafic must comme from geographic areas we can easily monetize (North America, South America, Europe).
- We can also deny access to The Moneytizer when a website has too many ads. A website overcrowded with ads is not well monetized.
- Finally, your website must not contain pop-under, site-under etc.
If your website meets their standards, then you should definitely give them a try! Click here (The Moneytizer) and let them know that www.Bauer-Power.net sent you!
