If you write a blog and you want to monetize it, one of your best options is to sign up with an ad network. There are more than a dozen ad networks out there.
However, you can’t just sign up with them and be instantly allowed to display their ads in your blog.
Majority of advertising networks implement a review process wherein they check applicants and their websites if these are suitable for their advertising program.
Some advertising networks have very strict rules while others are more lax in their requirements.
In this article, we are going to look into some of the best advertising networks with quick approvals that new bloggers can use to monetize their blogs.
1. Google Adsense
Google has become stricter when it comes to accepting new bloggers but it can still be easy to get accepted if you apply with a high quality blog.
New bloggers who meet all of the requirements can have their blogs accepted and approved between 24 to 48 hours. Yes, you heard that right.
Your account Adsense can be up and running within two days provided of course that you’ve met all of the program’s policies and requirements.
Two of the most important attributes that your blog must have to be accepted are age and valuable content. Blogs that have been around for quite some time have better chances of getting approved.
And of course, your blog must feature a good amount of high-quality content.
Adsense has its flaws but it still remains as the best advertising network that bloggers can use.
However, you have to be careful when using Adsense ads in your blog.
The network can terminate your account and ban you for ever using their service again. This regularly happens to Adsense publishers and it can happen to you.
With that said, see to it that you always follow the rules and policies of the network.
This is an ad network powered by Bing and Yahoo.
It’s reach and scope may not be as wide as that of Adsense but it’s still a great alternative for monetizing your blog with relevant ads.
Media.Net offers contextual ads of CPM, CPA, and CPC programs. What’s great about this advertising network is that it doesn’t have a minimum traffic requirement which makes it suitable for bloggers who are just starting out.
Media.Net is the second largest contextual advertising network in the world. This alone is more than enough reason for you to give it a try.
Some of the platform’s ad formats are even better than those of Adsense because their native ads take the form and feel of your website’s content.
Another great benefit of using Media.Net is that you will get a dedicated account manager.
This is very important if you are new and you need guidance on how to build your website and increase your earnings.
