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.
Ad 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
Who is Mediavine?
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 Mediavine

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 its 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.”

While we’re all still enjoying the fruits of those high Q4 RPMs as we prepare for the holidays, we know that pesky Q1 is lurking around the corner. Historically advertisers spend a lot of money on digital advertising during the height of the winter holidays, from Black Friday to Christmas, stretching a little into New Year’s Eve too. This means higher RPMs and more revenue! YES! But then, come January 1, it’s not uncommon for that spend to be scaled back. Way back. Why does ad revenue go down in January? The first few days of any month typically see low advertising spend, because advertisers are still deciding how and where they will spend that month, and it’s very normal for RPMs to drop on those days. When that month is also the beginning of a new quarter, like January, April, July or October, that drop is a […]+

Part of the fun of creating your own sustainable business is getting to spend any spare time however you want. Whether that’s raising a family, a horse, a pygmy goat, five chickens and a couple dogs like our publisher Kyle James of Rather Be Shopping or acting in musical theatre like Latasha Peterson of Arts & Budgets, the sky is the limit. We seriously love hearing what Mediavine income enables our publishers to do, and today we’re excited for you to meet Gary Arndt of Everything Everywhere. Gary visits about 20 countries a year. We are so pumped to hear about a much longer journey — his blogging journey — on our blog today! Welcome, Gary. Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family, and your everyday life. In 2007 I sold my home to travel around the world. I sort of just never stopped. Today I run […]+

New setting has been created in response to changes in Google PageSpeed Insights BOCA RATON, Fla. (Dec. 5, 2018) – This week Mediavine launched a new setting to optimize ads for mobile page loads. The feature was created in response to increased goals set by Google PageSpeed Insights and its latest Lighthouse update. Page speed is of utmost importance to Mediavine, which has long utilized the implementation of lazy loading to make it the fastest ad management provider. With these changes to PageSpeed Insights, however, it was critical for the company to develop a new, innovative strategy for its nearly 4,000 publishers to further optimize ads for mobile page loads. The new setting, labeled “Optimize Ads for Mobile PageSpeed” within Mediavine publishers’ dashboards, delays ads from loading until a user has become interactive. This allows web browsers to focus on loading the content as quickly […]+
