After we adding a post about how to add Content.ad to WordPress, and also about Spoutable. one of our users asked a question. It’s about requirements of the ad networks. In this post, we will show you the requirements for content ad approval. Also, how to make maximum revenue from them.
Requirements For Content Ad Approval!
Below, we have listed the main topics you need to consider before applying for the network.
Domain name matters. You can use a free domain and apply for the program. But, the folks behind content.ad will think you are not serious in the project!
You must get a TLD (Top Level Domain) for your website. We are using GoDaddy and Namecheap for domain registrations. A .com domain will work well. Using our GoDaddy coupon, you will get a .com domain for just $2 for a year!
Impressive isn’t it? It’s a limited time offer and you must get it ASAP.
Website design is also matters! Using a responsive theme will help you to impress all users and the advertisers. In our case, we are using a custom child theme of MyThemeShop‘s Schema. We have also tried Genesis in the past and it’s an awesome one.
Like other huge advertising companies, they don’t have a minimum traffic requirement or you don’t need less Alexa rank. But if you got a good amount of page views and user engagement, you can earn a decent amount from the network.
Don’t try to use any bots or join traffic exchange programs to bring traffic to your website. This will lead your account to a permanent BAN.
You must be in the category which more advertisers looking for. Means, you may be want to choose a relevant niche. This will help you to increase your conversation rate.
In our experience with the content.ad, entertainment, and weight loss niches will be good for the network.
Like Google AdSense and other ad networks, they will not allow every website on the platform. Make sure that your website is not illegal. Alcohol, tobacco and related websites are not accepted. If you are running any of this, you may want to try Wap4Dollar.
Content Ad is a CPC based platform. Means, you may want to get clicks on the sponsored content for earning money from the network. So if you are running any technology website like our’s, the content.ad will be a not a good option for you.
The revenue is totally based on the traffic country, ad placement, and related stuff. For us, we have got a CPC of $0.11 and CPM of $4.72.
NOTE: We have integrated Ezoic with the ad platform. So, Ezoic helped us to double our ad revenue and performance by improving user experience, placements, and A/B testing. You may want to try Ezoic if you want to increase your overall display advertising revenue.
