I run multiple websites and hence try different ad networks for monetization.
So, here is my monumetric review after my experience with them on one of my prominent websites.
The monumetric ads are implemented by the support team on your site. For this, they require your site’s login access.
They install a monumetric plugin to integrate your site with their ad server. Then the ad placement too is decided by the team.
They prescribe a minimum of 5 or 6 ads for a page. This includes an ad at the footer and also a video ad.
The plugin also helps update the ads.txt for ads from the website dashboard itself.
The Dashboard and console
The monumetric console gives many details about ads and the earnings on a single page. This includes the pageviews, impression, RPM, device-based revenue, etc.
The image below of my dashboard console shows RPM of $7.8, the income of $333 for 49900 pageviews.
But the weird thing is the earnings are updated after 24 to72 hours for a particular day. I think this is quite confusing and speculative.
Monumetric payment is based on net 60 terms, which means they will pay your earnings for a particular month after 60 days.
But based on my experience with them, the payout happens anywhere between 70 to 75 days.
They have different payment options like wire transfer into the bank account, PayPal but not Payoneer.
I prefer PayPal over Payoneer due to the lower charges. So I used a US bank account provided by Payoneer to receive payments by wire transfer.
The payout details are also sent to your registered email once payment is done.
I have tried ezoic before and I removed it from major sites due to speed issues. Then I ran valueimpression ads along with adsense. But, due to consent issues with adsense, I signed up with monumetric.
The income with a combination of monumetric and valueimpression is similar to that of adsense and valueimpression combination.
But with ezoic, I had 300% enhanced revenue. So, I think monumetric yield was not that great or comparable to ezoic.
They provide phone and email-based support. The support is quite good, and they assign a group of four or more people to assist you with any question regarding ads, payments, etc.
To join the program, your website needs to have at least 10000 page views per month.
They have different plans for different websites, as you can see on their website, like propel (10k-80K pageviews), Ascend (80-500k), Stratos (500k-10MM), and Apollo (10MM+).
Ezoic vs Monumetric
I have been using ezoic for the past 6 years now. And monumetric for the last few months. Here is a comparison of both.
|Ads||Ezoic has more ad sizes and variants||Fewer variants|
|Traffic requirements||Easy and lesser page views (≥10,000) are sufficient.||Hard. Minimal pageviews required are (≥80000)|
|Traffic countries||Visitors can be from all over the world.||Visitors have to be from top-tier countries like the USA, UK, Canada, and Australia.|
|Payment for ads||No payment for ads except for premium ads.||Payment required for ad set fee if traffic is less than 80k.|
|Integration||By DNS, Cloudflare, or WordPress plugin||Only by WordPress plugin|
|Effect on site speed||Slows down considerably||Little effect but noticeable.|
|Support||Dedicated account manager and general support||By a set of support teams allotted to you.|
|Payment methods||By Check, Bank transfer, Paypal, Payoneer||Bank transfers, Payoneer bank account and PayPal|

You must opt for monumetric instead of adsense.
|Ad quality||All sorts of ads and you need to check them manually||Better ads and you are free to ignore them as they handle it for you.|
