If you go to a website and see ads – on the side, before content, ones that pop up, ones that open when you leave a page – there’s a very good chance that the website owner is making money by showing those ads.
And they’re using an ad network to make it easy for them to do so.
An ad network is a company that allows advertisers (the seller or distributor) to target their desired audience by placing ads on various websites, channels or apps.
Ad networks also allow publishers (like you!) to make money from their websites by placing ads.
Most ad networks have a variety of ad formats that can be placed on a website. Publishers can choose which ad format they would like on their website from the ad network.
Depending on the ad network, ad earnings may be on a CPM (cost per thousand impressions) or CPC (cost per click) basis. (No need to worry about what those are just yet.)
In essence, ad networks function as brokers. They collect unsold ad inventory from online publishers like you and match them with advertisers looking for ad spots.
This makes it seamless for both sides to interact and, ultimately, make a profit.
How Do Ad Networks Make Money?
An ad network makes money by taking a portion of the ad earnings from the websites that are publishing ads for them. The advertisers pay the network – the network takes out a percentage and pays you, the publisher – based on how many clicks or impressions came from your website.
How Do Ad Networks Help YOU Make Money?
Websites that serve advertisements on behalf of advertisers typically have large audiences, usually made up of people who are interested in a certain topic or industry.
This is the goal of most bloggers and online publishers – to get a lot of visitors to their site or channel.
When a visitor lands on a blogger’s website, they will see a stream of ads as they scroll down the screen.
These ads can be in the form of a banner, text, or video. When a visitor clicks on an ad or lands on the advertiser’s website by clicking on a link from the publisher’s website, the network gets paid a commission for that advertisement.
Many ad networks are dedicated to serving ads to people interested in blogging and content creation. These ad networks can help you make money by placing ads on your website.
Different Types of Ad Networks
If you need to find an ad network that fits your particular audience or industry, you’ll probably find one. There are many different ad networks for different topics, audiences, and formats.
Here are three of the main types:
- Vertical networks: Ad networks that are topic-specific, such as fashion, automotive, technology or business.
- Premium networks: Ad networks that offer inventory from popular publishers.
- Inventory-specific networks: Ad networks that provide a specific type of ad inventory, such as video or mobile.
How To Choose the Right Ad Network for You
One of the most important things to consider is the audience of your website. If your website is aimed at fitness buffs, you might need a broader ad network than if your site is aimed at Linux users.
Conversely, if you sell software or services for Linux users, a large ad network may not be the best choice for your business, because it may not carry ads relevant to your market.
When choosing an ad network, you should also consider the types of ads you want to serve. Some ad networks allow you to specify certain categories to target. Others allow you to specify specific websites that you want to reach with your ads.
It is always best to research the different options available before deciding on one.
Signing Up for an Ad Network
In order to make money with ad networks, you will need to first sign up for an account.
Once you are logged in, you can then visit the network and select the sites you want to put advertising on.
Each ad network will offer different types of ads you can choose from.
Once you have selected the ads you want to display o your site, you will need to copy and paste the ad code onto your site.
When the ad revenue is generated by site visitors who click on your ads, it will be deposited into your account, and you can withdraw it when needed.
