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.
When we took over our own advertisement sales, we realized something revolutionary - we, the publishers, have the value.
We create the content. We built the brand. We attract the audiences the advertisers want. If we’re allowing them to run advertisements on our sites, we should be setting the rules.
In short, we changed the story.
Now you can too.
First and foremost, we’re publishers too. Every ad solution you see in place on the Mediavine Publisher Network has been tried and tested on our own sites first.
We’re dedicated to full transparency. You’ll always know how much we’re making, because it’s always a flat percentage. There are no hidden fees for administrative work, onboarding costs, or server charges.
There is no "Top 30" list here. There are no two tiers of offerings. Whether you get 30 million pageviews a month or 30 thousand, you’re getting the best, most customized service in the industry.
Most importantly, we're in this for the long haul. We've been independent publishers for over a decade thanks to our ability to adapt. We'll continue to evolve, and help you do the same.
Sick of watching your advertising revenue drop year over year while your traffic grows? Or worse, are you watching your traffic AND revenue drop? It's time for a change.
We look at advertisements radically different. We have no remnant ads here. Every impression is valuable at the Mediavine Publisher Network. Direct sales are just a part of the solution.
TLC was right. Those waterfalls have been destroying your site. By running multiple ad networks, each at a lower price than the one before means you're in a race to the bottom.
At Mediavine, we run a single auction with all advertisers competing at once. Let the advertiser who want to pay the most serve their ad.
That also means one price floor - a high one. Stop selling your site for cheap. We'd rather show no ad than give away a spot for a fraction of a penny.
We were founded on transparency and we take it very seriously. Every advertising opportunity we bring to you will be reported in your dashboard, an included service that will always be available so you can know what your check will be before it shows up.
We calculate the Industry's only consistent RPM - we use your own Google Analytics to tell you exactly what you're making per pageview.
There's also advanced reporting with breakdown by ad position, partner and device type.
Our dashboard even puts the ad controls in your hands, letting you choose ad frequency and which opportunities you're opted in to.
Join us in the fight against bad ads!
We're convinced that bad ads are ruining not just your site, but the Internet in general.
Users are rapidly turning to ad block as bad ads infect computers with malware and ruin user experience.
At Medavine, we've partnered with Pubnation to put ad controls in your hands, and the hands of your readers too. There's a "report ad" link under every Mediavine display ad to help us track down and stop bad ads.
We're also in a war against in-banner video ads. Video ads can be up to 200 times slower than a regular banner ad, but never pay 200 times better. Help us put an end to these browser-crashing ads.
Beyond that, we refuse to run pop-ups, sliders and other obstrusive ads.
Take back your site. Improve your user experience. Maximize your revenue.
These are our commitments to you, and every publisher we work with. Let's do this.
We've built our ad technology free of the burden of legacy ad networks. It's future proof and ready to grow with your site. You install a single script and we will optimize all placements on your site.
Using lazy-loading and other speed tricks, our network maintains over 70% viewability, making advertisers VERY happy.
We can help you monetize your own responsive site. Lack a mobile site? We'll get you a Google-approved one.
With ad block detection, we'll identify when ad block becomes a problem for your site and help you address the problem.
The best decision I’ve made for my blog
I knew within a day that switching to Mediavine was the best decision I’ve made for my blog. After years of ad network angst, I’m finally at ease. With Mediavine, I know the people behind the computer. They are smart, honest, and above-and-beyond helpful. They simply take care of everything so I can get back to blogging, worry-free. I’ll never switch again.
An easy transition
Switching to Mediavine was so easy! They stepped right in, making my site more efficient and faster than ever. Fewer ads, a faster site, and great money. Everything I hoped for!
Like night and day as far as site speed goes
I first encountered Mediavine's ads when working with a client on a website redesign. I've grown accustomed to the typical cumbersome and sluggish ads that bloggers use these days, resigned to the fact that I could code the quickest website in the world and it wouldn't make a lick of difference with ads in their current state. But as soon as I saw Mediavine's ads for the first time, I was blown away. Whatever magic they are working behind the scenes is absolutely brilliant, it's like night and day as far as site speed goes. Any blogger who cares about their readers should drop their current inefficient setup and sign on with Mediavine immediately.
Mediavine has their publishers' best interests at heart
I've worked with multiple ad companies, as well as managed my own ads, and I have never come across a company as honest and responsive as Mediavine. I switched from another company after having multiple issues, all of which were resolved immediately when Mediavine turned on their ads. People warned me that my RPM might be a little low when I first started, but immediately it was the same as my other company, and it has increased to over $5 more than I averaged even during peak months. My site is faster, the ads aren't intrusive or annoying, and I truly believe the Mediavine team has their publishers' best interests at heart. Every email from them is detailed, and I never feel like I'm at the bottom of the ladder with them. I was hesitant to switch, because the grass isn't always greener, but in this case, it definitely was. If you are thinking about starting up with Mediavine, know that it won't be a decision you'll regret.
Fewer ads that pay more
I'm so happy using Mediavine to manage my ads. The world of ads is a scary place, but with Mediavine, I finally have someone that I trust. The ad managers are experts in their field, and they will keep your site stocked with fewer ads that pay more! My business could not have grown without Mediavine.
Dedication to transparency
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.
Taking my site to the next level
The team at Mediavine have been lifesavers in helping take my site to the next level. All of the parts of advertising and figuring out what to run where and why...they not only get it, they spend the time to explain it to me and make sure I can be totally on board with what they are implementing. They've been a pleasure to work with and I look forward to a long, fruitful relationship with the whole team.
Communication is second to none
Before working with Mediavine Publisher Network, I had completely lost faith in ad management companies. Mediavine's level of transparency and communication is second to none. I am confident that I will continue to be part of their network for many years to come.
I would recommend them to anyone
I am so glad I made the decision to work with Mediavine. It's been hands down, the best experience with any ad network I have had. I love transparency and the fabulous customer service they provide. I would recommend them to anyone.
Only wish that I would have made the switch earlier
I can't say enough with how happy I am with Mediavine. I've tried it on my own, and worked with a couple of ad networks. No one has come even close to the ease and responsiveness as the people at Mediavine. Even the other publishers are helpful and supportive and the money has been great too. 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.
Impressed with the service and revenue
Just recently made the switch to MediaVine! Completely impressed with the service and the revenue that it produced! So thankful I made the switch, my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner!
