Simply put, Mediavine is not for New Websites, they don’t want you to display ads on your site and start scraping pennies off the floor, if you scrape, they scrape.
How Much Can You Earn with Mediavine?
With Mediavine, sites make $35 per 1000 views (RPM) on average, this differs depending on your Site’s niche as well as the average time a user spends on your web pages.
During my Study, I found a direct correlation between average time on Page and Mediavine RPMs, the more time users spend on your web pages, the higher your earnings per 1000 views.
That’s part of the reason why Mediavine Publishers write longer engaging articles, their goal is to keep you on their page for as long as possible to see as many ads as possible and increase their RPM.
Heck! it’s even in Mediavine’s Policy that aspiring Publishers should write long-form engaging content.
How Can you Improve your Mediavine RPM?
While the average Mediavine RPM may be $35, it doesn’t mean that you can’t see up to $100 RPM, even Ezoic has given me up to $108 ePMV so it’s very possible with Mediavine.
How Can you Improve your Mediavine RPM and make more money with your site:
- Write Longer, Engaging and High-quality articles.
- Implement Video Ads – Enabling Video Ads can boost your Mediavine RPM and revenue.
- Sticky Sidebar Ads – Add Mediavine Ads to your Sidebar and Make it sticky, so that your readers won’t scroll past it.
- Bottom Sticky Ads – These ads stick to the bottom of the user’s screen and are always in sight.
These are pretty much all the tweaks I can think of for tweaking Mediavine RPM, if you got any tips you can share with us in the comments.
Mediavine should be your target ad network whenever you’re starting or growing your blog, you’ll tend to make life changing revenue with them.
Before your website is eligible to be considered for Mediavine, you can actually get your site into Ezoic and make a couple of bucks from the little traffic you’d be getting from Google.
Once your site crossess the 50,000 sessions threshold in 30 days which is the requirement for Mediavine, you can remove your site from Ezoic and then apply for Mediavine, it will only take a couple of months to get you set up, provided your site is in compliance with their policies.
