Who is Mediavine?
Mediavine has been an Internet Publisher since 2004. We own and operate The Hollywood Gossip, TV Fanatic, Movie Fanatic and Food Fanatic. In 2013, when Food Fanatic was launched and our relationship with bloggers began, we learned we weren’t alone in our frustrations with the way most ad networks are run.
Networks were treating us as if they, and the advertisers, were the only ones with value. They told us what we should be paid and how we should run our sites. We were supposed to feel lucky to give them access to run their ads all over our sites.Learn more about who you'll be working with
The Publisher Network
We’re a group of publishers banded together working directly with the ad exchanges and advertisers to get top dollar for our ad inventory, but we are not an ad network.
We'll be taking on the role as your exclusive ad representation. We'll optimize your positions, run your ad server, and manage your advertiser relationships.
But we're in this together. We’re fellow bloggers, working towards a common goal - faster sites, more traffic, and better user experiences. All while making a nice living.Learn more about joining our network
Real people. Real stories.
Yes, you can have it all.
Influencer marketing is more cost effective than most other marketing efforts. Our publishers are full of creative ways to get the word out about your brand that will leave lasting impressions on their audience. Our publishers have been extensively vetted, and publish quality content on a regular basis. They have engaged audiences that trust them.
We take the work out of finding the right influencer for your brand, and work with bloggers to handle all the details like invoicing, collecting deliverables, monitoring, and reporting.Learn more about how we work with brands
I recently made the switch to MediaVine for my ad manager. I have been writing online, full-time, since 2008, and have been blown away by the responsiveness and transparency of this company.
I love the ease of the dashboard, the outstanding customer service, and the close-knit community they have provided and consistently maintain. I have been ecstatically happy since making the switch to MediaVine and highly recommend them.
A Year of Slow Cooking
“I was resistant to joining an ad network because I had heard so many horror stories, but MPN is the opposite. Instead of working with a big faceless corporation, with MPN you have direct contact with people – imagine that!
The team is so transparent, honest, and responsive – you can’t ask for anything better. I really respect their approach to open communication, and the private Facebook group is such a good resource.”
Bacon is Magic
“Mediavine is the best of the best! I’ve been with them since they started serving ads and I have never once regretted leaving the well known ad companies I previously worked with. Not only are they transparent, you always know what’s happening with your ads and revenue, but they also want to see your site performing at it’s peak. They will work with you to help improve site speed, answer SEO questions, and help you out with other site-related issues as needed. Mediavine does right by their publishers, NOBODY does it better (even if they claim they do)!”
What The Fork Food Blog
“I cannot say enough good things about Mediavine. I’ve tried so many different ad networks, and there is truly no comparison. The ads run smoothly, quickly and integrate seamlessly into my site. The staff is quick to respond any time I have a question. Their dashboard makes it very easy to adjust my ads, which is a level of control that no other company has ever offered me! The revenue is what really sells it, though. I’m earning so much more on my ads than with any of the previous networks I used. What more can I say? Give them a try!”
“Entrusting Mediavine to run all aspects of my site’s ad setup and strategy has been one of the best business decisions I have ever made. Mediavine’s team of experts has effectively monetized my site, and in doing so they’ve given me the ability to focus on all other aspects of growing my brand and business. Best of all, their transparency, attentiveness and user-friendly dashboard have ensured I understand the countless ad options, how they perform and the best practices for placement. I wholeheartedly recommend Mediavine for anyone looking to take the stress and guesswork out of turning traffic into dollars.”
Just a Taste
“After strong recommendations from other blogging friends, I decided to give Mediavine a try. I couldn’t be more happy that I did. First on the list is the incredibly personal, prompt support that they provide. They want your site to perform at it’s highest possible level. When you do well, they do well, and everyone does well. It truly feels like one large family now. I am thrilled to not have to spend time finding a better network in the future. This is it.”
“I’ve been with many of the big ad networks and could kick myself for not switching a year ago instead of a few months. My ad revenue has DOUBLED (and it was my highest ever with the network I was with prior), not to mention the service and camaraderie in the FB group is incredible. They don’t just set the bar, they ARE the bar.”
The Wicked Noodle
“Signing up with Mediavine has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I only wish that I would have made the switch earlier.”
“ What’s my favorite thing about Mediavine? Crystal clear communication from day one. Their dedication to transparency helps me to know I’ve put my trust in the right people to help me manage an aspect of my business that’s far more technical than I care to take on myself.”

When we originally launched the Mediavine Video Player, it started off as a click-to-play player only. It was a weird concept on the Internet….to only show a video to a user if they actually wanted to watch the video. Due to requests from our publishers and against our initial judgement, we eventually added a Google policy-compliant autoplay feature to the Mediavine Video Player. It would let you set videos to autoplay as long as they were above the fold, large enough, and not muted. We obviously saw our number of plays drastically increase, which made sense. Not every user wants to watch your awesome videos, but when you force every single user to, that’s clearly going to increase the numbers of “plays.” However, are those “plays” really views if the user isn’t actually watching the videos? I suppose it depends on the perspective you’re looking […]+

We know we’re not the only ad management company in town, and we’re more than okay with that. However, what we’re not okay with is the misinformation and incomplete pictures painted by some of those competitors. As the network of transparency, we’ve been as up front as possible about our revenue share since our inception. It’s been in our contract that all publishers signed, throughout our emails, posted on our website, and in our help articles. Our revenue share is transparent here at Mediavine, and it’s equal for all our publishers. On deals run through our ad server, it’s 70 percent to our publishers and 30 percent to Mediavine. On third party partnerships we run such as ZergNet, Chicory, and GumGum In-Image ads, it’s 80 percent to our publishers and 20 percent to Mediavine. Does that revenue share sound too low? We promise you it’s not, […]+

When we first launched AMP on our sites, we followed Google suggestions and split up our Google Analytics into two separate profiles – one for AMP and one for the rest of our web traffic. As a network, we recommended our publishers running AMP do the same. Unfortunately, this led to having to check two sources to get the complete view of your traffic. Even worse? For those of us addicted to Google RTA, our numbers weren’t nearly as exciting as they should be. Thanks to the fact Google recently shed some light on using “Data Source” to split out your AMP traffic from your regular mobile web, we’ve officially changed our recommendation for AMP analytics implementation as a network, and have already moved over our own blogs. Now with a single profile, you can get the big picture on how your overall traffic is doing with both […]+
