After using ezoic for a while, I was looking for other ad networks to checkout. If you are into running online sites and making ad revenue, you must not stick up to one system. Though Adsense is an excellent network, still you must try to which one is suitable for you.
I came across newormedia.com an ad network which promises a better stack and revenue than Adsense.
I did try them for a while and am still using them for a few sites. And here is the newordmedia review based on my experience.
About the company:
It is a company based in the
You will get an email from one of their support staff if your site is suitable to run their ads. That support staff would be your account manager and help in aspects like giving ads codes and answering your doubts.
Review of Newordmedia ads:
1. The ads: The ads are of good quality and are from different networks. These include Adsense, double click, rhythmone, sovrn, gumgum, criteo, outbrain, revcontent, etc. Use of many ad networks, helps them to compete for the ad space on your website. The network which pays more is displayed on the site. Thus you make more money than using just Adsense alone.
2. The payment method: They pay on net 30 terms, which mean the earnings of January will be paid in March. The company offers instant payment through PayPal.
I used to get their payment around 5th of the month. Besides your revenue, they also bear the PayPal charges for you. So, it is a fair deal.However, I wished for Payoneer payment as Paypal charges more for the currency conversion. When I enquired about it, they said they were trying to integrate with Payoneer shortly.
3. Quality of ads on your sites and user: Most of their ads are banner ads with clean interface. There is no hidden software or malware to ruin your website or the computer of your visitor. So you will have no issues with Google or complaints from your visitors. I once had a bad experience with adsterra due to mobile redirections.
4. Effect of ads on site speed: In general, the presence of ads slows down the site speed. The visitors will have a delay in the loading of the site. This is common for Adsense; media dot net (yahoo ads), exmarketplace and others. But, when you go for ad network partners who promise to enhance your revenue, this effect is more.
They follow a technique called header bidding which drastically slows down your site. I have seen this with many ad partners. Even newormedia is not an exception. However, they load their ads asynchronously. Hence, the webpage is loaded first without wasting time. Then ads also are displayed. I felt no significant loss in site speed from my Google analytics stats when using this network. But, when I used other ad networks, the site speed used to be very low, leading to a drop in site rankings on google.
Things I wised for:
They do not seem to evaluate ad placements for better revenue. This is technique is available with ezoic. And if a visitor see the ads at same location when he go through other pages, he avoids them. Rotating the ad placements would help to gain more clicks and revenue.
