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.

Blogger Buzz

“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.”


Ayngelina Brogan

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)!”


Sharon Lachendro

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.”

    Google Analytics referral spam is a confusing, common issue for publishers. Fortunately, it is both harmless and simple to remove. This is not real traffic, despite what the reporting says, nor is it anything to worry about. Your site is not being hacked or compromised. Spammers are not visiting your site, nor attempting to access it. Rather, their goal is to send fake pageviews directly to your Google Analytics to get your attention and induce panic, and/or to mask or inflate their own traffic numbers, hoping you won’t notice. In any event, your ads are not loading and no one is visiting your page. However, we still recommend setting up a filter to block this. Your ads and earnings will not be affected, but your reporting will; RPMs will appear lower, as Google Analytics is counting artificial pageviews with no ad impressions to show for […]

    For nearly two years, Mediavine has supported SSL ads, but has never encouraged publishers run them. In fact, our company stance was to gently discourage a blogger from going full site SSL if they were primarily a content site, and not actively collecting sensitive information that would require a secure connection (like selling something that needed to collect credit card information). Why? When you run an SSL site, all resources on a site must be SSL compatible and that includes the advertisements. When you run our script wrapper securely, only secure ads are eligible to serve. With a decrease in available advertisements, there’s less competition for your ad spots. Less competitions ultimately means lower CPMs. We saw results as drastic as a 10-30% lower, when we first began supporting SSL. Because this is just as important for our own sites as it is our publishers, we’re constantly […]

    Mediavine is proud to announce that we are now an official AMP ad network and that we’ll be working with our publishers to all adopt AMP soon! What… What is AMP? For those of you not as obsessed with Google as us, AMP, or the The Accelerated Mobile Page (AMP) Project is an open source initiative led by Google that’s trying to make the web a lot faster. For the non-programmers out there, you can look at AMP as an upgraded version of HTML when creating your mobile pages. For the geeks, you can read about the full spec at AMP Project. AMP is designed to be lightening fast and able to be stored in Google’s cache so your pages are served instantly to users across the world. As part of their speed quest, Google and the AMP project had to limit third party scripts and […]
