Hey there, about a week and half ago I started using this advertising network called media.net which is claimed to be the Adsense competitor from Yahoo and Bing. Yeah it’s true, this is a partner with Yahoo and Bing, so it could be one of the greatest news of my day! I joined run into their website and fill in the registration form and until the day that I got my approval I was keep praying to god and wishing like a kid who wants something foolish for his Christmas gift.
Well I got my approval after around 4 days, it was great! the account manager emailed me the details and asked me to contact him in case I had any problems or questions! I logged into my account once I got the email and started to make my ad units as I was expected.
I put the advertisement on the blog! right now at the moment I’m posting this the ads are still running in my blog! the revenue earned by media.net is based on a ratio called RPM. well the RPM in my case was 2.0$ it meant that every 1000 impression of their ads would get me 2$. well it sounded so good to be compared with infolinks and other ad networks I am currently using. So I was happily earning around 50 cent per day since my blog visitors are not that huge! and I was happy with it.
after around 4 days of successful earning something bad happened, the ads were being shown but the RPM turned into 0 from 2. it means my website worth nothing! and there were no revenue for the impressions of ads! it is like I am advertising them for freely!
it sucks! so all I did was to contact my account manager through email and his response was like “Hey Mahdi, believe me you are doing great and soon in next few days the numbers will be changed”. it’s already 4 days passed from the matter and the RPM is still on 0.
I’m confused with this matter, I will be posting about it once I got any response or something.
