The Yahoo-Bing Search Network recently teamed up with Media.net to offer web publishers a new alternative to Google AdSense, named the Yahoo Bing Network Contextual Ads Program.
Google AdSense is the undisputed leader as far as Internet advertising is concerned and is always the first choice for bloggers and website owners looking to monetize their content. There have been many ad networks launched, all claiming to be ‘the’ Google AdSense alternative, but none are offering the kind of money that AdSense offers – although many like TribalFusion, IDG Tech Network, etc, are reported to be doing well with select publishers too!
However this new association of Google Search’s closest rivals could well prove a real challenge to Google AdSense.
The Contextual Ads program is an entirely new and unrelated solution for publishers. It is powered by Media.net. It has nothing to do with Yahoo Publisher Network or the erstwhile YPNO. The ad network will be powered by Media.net, who will manage technology, business operations and relationships with respect to publishers worldwide for the program.
Key Features of the program for publishers include:
- Premium advertiser pool
- Robust targeting
- Customization Options
- Control over ads targeting
- Dynamic optimization
- Placement flexibility will let Publishers can run ad units in tandem with or in place of their current ads.
- Mobile ads
- Real support
The program is built for websites with premium content – and they could be large or even small websites. They must essentially have:
- High-quality content and traffic
- A reasonable volume of visitors already using the website
- Majority of traffic from United States / Canada / United Kingdom
- English as the primary language
