It is no secret that more and more bloggers and website owners are looking for other ad networks as an alternative for Google Adsense. Some of the reasons were the Publishers’ dropping revenues from Google Adsense. CPC keeps on dropping to the point where almost all the clicks cost nothing at all. Not enough to buy bread. The frustration goes stronger when the blogger writes something viral, unique and an article with high-quality but at the end of the day the Publisher will only get a penny out from Google Adsense. Of course when we say the article has become viral then incoming traffic shouldn’t be an issue.
Google Adsense and a lot of blog sites out in the Internet offer tutorials and other techniques on how to properly place your ad units to earn more. One of the problems of publishers is that their readers are becoming more and more familiar with ad units as a result they tend to ignore it – blinded by ads. What if you have already exhausted almost everything and yet you are still not earning from Google Adsense? Could this be the right time to find an alternative for Google Adsense?
Then I guess it’s about time for publishers to try Yahoo Bing Contextual Ads which powered by media.net as an alternative for Google Adsense.
What is Yahoo Bing Contextual Ads Network?
Yahoo and Bing Contextual Ads program is not yet in full-bloom and if you are one of the aspiring or interested publishers you need to fill up some form after you request for an invite. For an overview, I suggest you watch this video below first.
So there you have it, a quick yet concise on how the Yahoo and Bing Contextual Ads Network really works. And if you have been using Google Adsense before and want to jump over to Yahoo then I don’t see anyone getting lost on how to create and implement ads.
How Do I Apply For Yahoo and Bing Contextual Ads Network?
Like any other advertising company that is allowing Publishers to profit, an application is necessary. With Yahoo and Bing Contextual Ads Network, you need to request an invite and fill some information before you can actually send your interest. The application is not that hard to accomplish. What makes the application harder is probably the long wait. When I applied for this, I got an email that I have to wait for the next two weeks before they can check my application due to the advertising’s back jobs. I guess there are lots of bloggers who already sent their request. This long wait is not new to me as this can also happen with Google Adsense. The worst case scenario is that your application is denied after waiting for weeks. Well, there’s nothing to lose anyway right? So I am recommending for you to give it a shot as well.
You should have a Yahoo account when you apply.
1. Open your browser and go to Yahoo and Bing Contextual Ads Network.
2. In the upper-right corner of the page there will be a button called “REQUEST AN INVITE”.
3. You just need to fill the information required from you during the 3-steps application. You need to be truthful about the details that you will use for the application.
4. Once you are done, you should receive an email from Media.Net about your application.
All you have to do now is wait until your application has been approved. There you have it, another window for us publishers to earn more revenues online by blogging. We have another alternative for Google Adsense, let us just see if this is more worth it than Google Adsense.
