Ad Networks for Online Arcade Game Portals

Ad Networks for Online Arcade Game Portals
« on: February 13, 2018, 04:29:12 AM »
Many things happened in the last two years, copacet went down, traffic exchanges networks went down one by one is difficulty to find a decent ad network besides adsense. So I'm building a list of ad networks you can use to monetize traffic on online arcades. Please add the missing ones.

  • Adsense - definitely the best here on the market. For video prerolls you need to apply to a separate service, Adsense for Games(you need at least 70% games content with over 1 million games impressions monthly.)
  • ad4game.com - I used them for a while a long long time ago, for their site skin ads.
     One annoying thing is that you need to contact them to add a new ad unit to the inventory.
  • cpmadserver.com - never tried them, can not say much
  • cpmstar.com - a long time ago it took forever to have the account approved. Last time I used them for monetizing flash games their cpm was really low, but it was the time when flash was dying and advertisers were running away from such platforms.
  • epicgameads.com - in my opinion more than decent ad network, my first choice after adsense
  • gtburst.com - never tried them
  • adforgames.com - never tried
  • media.net - this is not specialized in games, but it seems like a good alternative to adsense. They are big and they have a partnership with microsoft and yahoo to display ads on they search engines, bing and yahoo.

Another one is Chitika. I use it myself, but I haven't heard good reviews from it. Anyway, I haven't had a chance to really improve my traffic, so I don't really know the full power of Chitika.  Note, they only show public service ads until you get so many visitors.

Of all the ad networks you mentioned I am using the Google Adsense. It pretty worked for me as I earned not really quite a lot but enough for an online advertising network that pays. It monetizes you in every click or view in your link, video or banner.
