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.

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.

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.

“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!”

Jennifer Farley

Savory Simple

“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.”

Kelly Senyei

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.”

Phillip Fryman

Southern Fatty

“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.”

Kristy Bernardo

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.”

Patti Estep

Garden Matter

“ 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.”

    Kirsten Oliphant recently spoke at the Mediavine Publisher Conference with Mary Younkin on how to make the most out of your email lists and newsletter audience. Kirsten is sharing more tips with you here, along with our video of the full conference presentation. -Amber  Keeping up with every new social platform and tool can be exhausting. (Or exhilarating, if you love social media.) Love or hate them, all the shiny new objects make email seem a bit outdated. Plus, our inboxes are overflowing with promotional emails. So as bloggers, do we really need to put time into email lists? YES. Unlike almost every social platform out there, it doesn’t have an algorithm. You also have a more permanent connection to your email subscribers, because you can literally download their emails. People also have to do more work to subscribe, which means they are already more […]

    There’s been a lot of talk, and fear, after Google announced it would join Coalition for Better Ads and would be building ad blocking in Google Chrome. Due to our relationship with Google, we’ve been holding out on officially commenting on this until more information was released. Now that there’s enough official information out there, we’d love to put our publishers’ minds at ease. We know many of you were worried, and rightfully so. There was an implied threat your income was on the line. However, if you’re with Mediavine, you shouldn’t be. We’re not scared by the upcoming changes and suggestions by Google or the Coalition for Better Ads. In fact, because of how we do business, we’re downright excited. Why? Because they go hand-in-hand with our entire philosophy towards advertising, and will lead to a better Internet where fewer users even think about installing an all-or-nothing ad blocker. […]

    Google Search Console. Yes, it’s time to wipe the dust off your account over at Google Search Console (GSC) and actually use that thing for the SEO you thought you were going to when you first signed up. Today we’re going to focus on using your Search Analytics within GSC, formerly known as Webmaster Tools in a past life, to find new keywords and to improve existing rankings. I know this may sound counterintuitive. Why would I go through search terms I already rank for to find new keywords to write about? Because we’re going to be looking for search terms you’re ranking on, but not currently ranking in the top three. Beyond that, ranking for a term is only half the battle! You need to get clicks from the search results to your actual posts, and being in the top three or the new Position Zero […]
