10+ High Paying Ad Networks For Bloggers and Publishers In 2018

High Paying Ad Networks

When it comes to making money from a blog, Advertising is considered as the oldest and most popular monetization way.

Most of the bloggers start their blogging journey with a hope of making money from advertisement. And a lot of them fail because of not doing A/B testing. What works for me might not work for others.

If you are a blogger and want to make money from advertisement, you have to figure out what network works great for you. There are plenty of Ad Networks out there. It’s not a good idea to stick with one network or get frustrated after getting rejected by an Ad network.

It’s better to try several networks. Here I will be sharing a list of best-paying Ad networks for bloggers and publishers. Some of them are similar, and some of them are different from each other.

  • Hello Istiak, can I draw the cash given in cheque from Bangladesh? If yes, how long it may take?

    My question may seem off-topic, but I think the answer will help many bloggers out there get their money smoothly who don’t have the chance to use PayPal. If you’ve any personal experience regarding cheque, sharing that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      My personal experience with the check is not good. I had to dump a check by ShareASale because of my bank (DBBL) was not familiar with the check. So I’d recommend you to go with the wire transfer. Some of the networks pay with Payoneer. Payoneer is a good option to get paid online.

  • Rohit says:

    AdSense and infolinks are best for me. Buysellads approval not easy. Media.net needs much traffic to earn.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Media.net works great for US and Canada based traffic.

  • Simeon Udoh says:

    I’ve tried a lot of them. Ubercpm has illegal redirection of mobile visitors. Chitika displays irrelevant ads. My niche is tech and ads are for donations. This only means less clicks. For now, Infolinks does it for me till I get approved by AdSense

  • Sapna Choudhary says:

    Hii Istiak,

    This article could be of encouragement blogger newbies who want to make money from the internet. Thanks for the article, very helpful.

  • Samim Hasan says:

  • Utpal Konwar says:

    Thanks for your informative article. It really helped me a lot to find out the best ad platform for blog publishers.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Glad I could help.

  • Dear Istiak,
    Have you tried RevenueHits and got paid from them? I’m very much interested in this ad network. Hopefully, apply soon.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, I tried. But the problem is, Revenuehits shows spammy ads. That’s why I removed them from the list. You can try Media.net. It’s the best AdSense alternative.

      • Masud Parvage says:

        I’ve already applied and been approved by media.net. You’ll be very happy to know- I first heard about media.net from RTB and then applied through your aff link. Now am going to withdraw my first payment from them. Thanks for your great content.

        • Istiak Rayhan says:

          Oh, Great! Glad to know that.

  • Ruslan says:

    GlobalAdMedia – best company! I’ve been working with them recently, but I’m surprised by their high-quality service, quick payouts, and quick support! Always answer questions and always help! For me, Global ADMedia is the best! I advise everyone to connect to them. Registration: http://www.globaladmedia.com

  • Nice list of ad networks. I want to mention that Popads,Media.net and Infolinks works best for me while Bidvertiser, Chitika and RevenueHits are bad for Indian Traffic.
