I just heard about this media.net someone said they pay more than AdSense. I tried to join but didn’t get approved. please review the media.net site for me. Do they accept Nigerians?
Read their terms, make sure you abide by all the rules and join again.
I’ve heard a lot of other Bloggers complain about not getting approved by media.net, even I had the same issue.
I first read about the program when I was researching for the best alternatives to adsense, then I saw that bloggers like Harsh of shoutmeloud and some other top guys reviewed the network and their earnings were a bit impressive.
Some even claim they pay more than adsense does.
I rushed down to their website without giving it a second thought, Submitted my site for review but unfortunately, my site always got rejected.
After four rejection notices, I decided to do something to get into the program after which my account got approved unexpectedly and you know what? I never expected a reply till after a week but that time, It took less than 2days.
with nothing else to do, I decided to check my mail although not expecting a reply but then, I opened it to see two e-mails lying flat and waiting for my arrival😃😎
Before I proceed to tell you some of the tricks I used to get approved into this program with a Nigerian blog, let’s first try and Know a little detail about this program.
Who own Media.net owner: This program is co-owned by Bing & Yahoo but I heard it was Later sold.
What Type of ad network is media.net: it is a CPC based network and they are said to return more earnings compared to AdSense.
What is the Minimum traffic required: there is no minimum requirement to join the program, as a matter of fact, my blog was only getting 30 to 50 page views when it got approved.
Why they are better: you are assigned with an Account reps, done-for-you ROI optimization, DSP technology (more below)
Payment methods: they pay on monthly bases via wire transfer with a threshold of $1000 or PayPal with a threshold of $100

Well I didn’t do anything big to get approved.
Media.net does not like to see other ad blocks when reviewing your blog.
I had AdSense ads on my blog which was the reason I got rejected four times, i removed them when I discovered this then applied again and got approved in about 24hours.
media.net was cool for me when I used them on my niche site targeted at U.S audience.
