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 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.”

    Amazon quietly announced last month that it is retiring CPM Ads, a product it launched almost as quietly in 2014, at the end of September. For those unaware, Amazon CPM Ads was designed to allow smaller publishers that were a part of Amazon Associates affiliate program to run additional ad units. CPM Ads, which appear in website banners along with other placements, operate on a cost-per-impression (CPM) basis, but their days are officially numbered. Amazon Associates members were notified, and a help topic for affiliates also confirmed, the end of CPM Ads as of September 30 of this year. The company did not elaborate on why it is sunsetting CPM Ads, but its elimination leaves a void for many publishers, especially smaller ones. Amazon’s other offerings in this area, such as Unified Ad Marketplace, seem engineered for larger websites, rather than smaller publishers, as Amazon […]

    Mediavine’s sales and revenue team spends most of its time working with ad partners and internally to deliver the most value for every single impression on our publishers’ properties. One question we often hear from publishers, however, is what they can do on their own to make their sites more appealing to advertisers. Below is a brief breakdown of what we do to get as many advertisers as possible bidding on your inventory, and how you can help the process on the publishing side. For more information on how this auction process works behind the scenes, read Mediavine co-founder Eric’s post on header bidding. All sites go through a multiple-step approval process when joining Mediavine. Internally, we ensure that sites meet the basic Mediavine requirements, but what you may not know is that our publishers are also approved by every single monetization partner (Google, Index […]

    Perhaps you’ve heard of a (not so) little social media platform called Pinterest? It’s no secret that Pinterest is the place for content creators. From food to crafting to fashion and more, it is the place where creators can connect with readers and inspire everyone to make something amazing. At Mediavine, we recognize the enormous value that a platform of this type and magnitude can have to our publishers, which is why we have worked hard to establish a relationship with the team behind Pinterest, introducing them to our content creators and advocating on your behalf with them. They’ve been featured multiple times on the Mediavine blog, and whether we’re introducing their new business profile or our hack for hidden pins, any content involving Pinterest is always popular. We even did a Facebook Live Q&A with two of their employees recently, and plan to do more […]
