    Use the Mediavine Video Player to host and stream your videos directly on your site, all while monetizing at rates several times higher than YouTube.

Our History

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.

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.

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.”

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 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.”

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.”

    We talk a lot about our mission at Mediavine – building sustainable businesses for content creators. Earlier this year, I joined our lovely publisher, Betsy Eves from the blog JavaCupcake, in teaching a class for the Dog Tag Inc. Fellowship.     Betsy is an alumna of this Fellowship program, so hearing firsthand her experience at creating an online business is exceptionally powerful. We set out with the goal of teaching a mindset – thinking of yourself as a brand before you’ve even bought a domain name or figured out a product you want to sell. Fellows in this program are tasked with learning all about becoming entrepreneurs. And whether you use a blog as your main business focus, or use it as a tool to augment another product or service, blogging the right way to support your goals can be an important skill to […]

    Yes, Create fans, you read that headline correctly. Create now features a Jump to Recipe button. We know we’ve encouraged you not to use a jump button to skip your content in the past for ad performance reasons. However, we’re aware that there’s a growing movement to adopt this feature for a better user experience. So what made Mediavine finally roll out a Jump to Recipe button — or “Jump to Card” button, as we’re calling it, since its function is the same for bloggers in any space — after years of opposition? We don’t add features for the sake of adding features, but to fully solve a problem. The problem with this case is that many users really want a way to jump directly to your most valuable content. That content would likely be your recipe, if you’re a food blogger, or your How-To […]

    As I teased at our Chicago conference in June, Mediavine has been working on a WordPress plugin to optimize websites for social sharing and newsletter signups without slowing anything down. Today, we’re excited to announce that Grow by Mediavine is finally available in the WordPress plugin directory, where you may be surprised to see that it already has 80,000 active installations. Which leads us to a second, related announcement: Mediavine recently completed its acquisition of Social Pug and Optin Hound from DevPups, and these plugins are now Grow.     Why did we go this route, rather than building it from scratch? In short, because of you. It’s this blogging community that helped build Mediavine, and Social Pug has become the de facto social sharing button that our publishers have been installing. There’s a reason it has 80,000 installs. Because it works. In developing Trellis, […]
