YesAdvertising Review for Publishers

The company has been around for quite some time now. So much has changed over that time so here is an updated YesAdvertising review for July 2016.

Finding innovative ways to help Publishers make the most of their revenue streams.

Introduction to YesAdvertising

YesAdvertising Review

YesAdvertising provides an online advertising solution for both publishers and advertisers. This review will focus mainly on publishers. The network is owned by YesUp Media Inc. which is famous for providing innovative online and offline advertising solutions. YesAdvertising uses the eCPM model to help publishers make the most of their revenue streams in a single platform. Publishers can count on the network’s eCPM model to get the most competitive rates for their traffic quality.

Since it was established, YesAdvertising has grown to accommodate over 100,000 publishers currently serving more than 2 billion impressions. The network has a rich database of thousands of offers and campaigns that span over 200 countries. YesAdvertising provides publishers with one of the most lucrative opportunities to monetize their websites and blogs with high paying ads from reputable companies.

From an intuitive dashboard, publishers have full control over which ads to run in their sites. You can easily create a campaign of your choice or simply let the system do it for you. The network provides both desktop and mobile optimized ads. Publishers can even customize their ads to improve CTR and other factors that affect performance.

The network has an automated system that seeks for all relevant information about an ad within its database such as clicks and views to determine which ad has the best profit potential for your site. Unlike other networks that rely on keyword advertising, YesAdvertising tracks all activities around each ad, to automatically generate the best ads for your website or blog based on your statistics. The network offers publishers a data driven environment to get the most out of their website traffic.

YesAdvertising uses different pricing models to compensate its publishers including CPA, CPM, CPL, CPC, and POP ads. This is great for publishers since you are paid for conversions, clicks, and even impressions. Payments are disbursed every two weeks or weekly and always on time. The network has a low minimum payout of just $50. They have multiple payment options including PayPal, Payoneer, Perfect Money, Bank Transfer, and Wire Transfers. Weekly payments are also provided above a certain threshold.

Registration and approval is always a headache to many potential publishers seeking to join a good ad network. Unlike other networks that take you through a rigorous application process, signing up at YesAdvertising is a breeze. The network does not have restrictive issues such as minimum traffic requirements and website approvals.

Any publisher, beginners and advanced alike, can apply to join YesAdvertising. You only need to fill a simple form to create an account.

You won’t have to submit your blog or website for approval before joining the network, but your site has to comply with their terms and conditions.

For example, the network does not accept content that is rated NSFW or adult, so if you seek to monetize adult content this may not be the network for you.

Otherwise, once you create your account you will be good to go and can start generating tags and placing ads on your website.

The network prides itself an efficient customer support that can be reached via phone or email 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days. Publishers also have access to dedicated account managers who are always ready to assist you in improving your ad revenue any time you wish to reach them.

Like in other networks, their publishers have the option of increasing their revenues through the network’s referral system. The main difference between the referral system at YesAdvertising and in other networks is the fact that this network provides a 10% commission while the rest tend to pay 5% commission.

You can make good money by referring your friends or family to join the network and earn you 10% of what they make. You are provided with banner creatives which you can easily add to your blog or website using a unique Referral Code. You become a member of the Referral program once you sign up for a publisher account.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

What we like most: On time payments, super optimized ads, multiple ad formats, multiple revenue models, an effective and reliable technology for tracking and ad placement, efficient support system who respond to publisher queries 24/7, and of course the almost automatic, hassle-free application and approval process.

What we like least: Website approval is not a requirement for being accepted, but your site has to undergo verification before you are allowed to run ads. This is to ensure the site complies with their terms and conditions.
