15 Best Cost Per Impression (CPM) Ads Networks

Cost Per Impression or CPM advertisements are another way of making money with your website or blog. Most of the Websites are today depended on Google AdSense but having another source of revenue can help you earn more.

There are different types of advertisement program like Pay Per Click, Cost per sale, Cost Per Action etc. Google AdSense pay you when someone clicks on Ads. CPA program pays you when some action is done like filling a form etc but to earn with CPM ad nothing need to be done.

When you sign up for a CPM program and put ad code on your website ads are started displaying and you earn on the basis of CPM cost per thousand impressions. You will be paid when that ad is displayed 1000 times. You don’t have to worry about how many clicks that ad is getting or how many leads are generating.

    Ravi,
    Excellent information. I have another query though. For Indian publishers like you and me, do Indian ad networks pay better CPM than Foreign Ad networks?

    For an Indian tech blogger with 1,000,000 page views monthly and 30% US visitors, how much CPM can he expect?

    Thanks
    Vishal

    Can someone tell like google AdSence, what are other genuine PPC or PTC sites & what are their joining criteria?

  7. Jay says

    You’ve included Clove Network in this list? You’re kidding right? They’ve been banned by the ANCI and they’re a known C-grade ad network. I’m never working with them again.

  8. says

    Thanks for the list. The only network I really new about was tribal fusion, but have not sign up for it due to their site requirements. I will be checking out the rest for sure. Thanks again.

  12. jimmy hill says

    i have used most and your rankings are not right. burst will drop your site with no reason at all. adbrite will accuse you of clicking its ads with no proof and drop you and will not respond and have no phone number . gungho pays nothing they are the worst avoid them at all costs

    What is the best CPM ad network for forums? I am going to start a forum and I wish to know what is the best ad network for forums.

  17. Charm Gonzales says

    They are quality ad network but I believe adsense still the boss of all ad network but to those who wanted to get more try madadsmedia.com with infolinks plus cpx media just make a good content and sufficient traffic just work at home and you will be fine :)

  18. adam says

    bah, someone recommended Adnoble in the comments… what a loser.. I just tried it out, the network is shit.. the ads were full of errors and the cpm was low.. .20 don’t waste your time Adnoble suuucks… hope they get the alert

    If possible would like to know how these online ad networks really work.
    I mean how these ad networks initially get into this business.
    From where do they initially get advertisements, so that they are able to deliver these advertisements to other websites.

  20. Irak says

    Use cpcGalaxy.com few days and am very pleased. Gain between $ 0.5 and $ 1.5 per click and I already received payment.

  21. says

    I was looking for this kind of list because I have trouble making money with adsense. I guess I’ll experiment which one of these will fit to my blogs

  25. Dilupa says

    Hey, I’n a novice blogger and I only get around 50 unique visitors per day. However almost all of them are from search engines. However they hardly ever click on any ads. It would take months to get 1000 visitors. Could you please suggest me a solution?

    • says

      Yes it takes time to grow audience and my suggestion will be to don’t think about earning at beginning. Focus on quality article an build relationship and you will find your blog growing. When you start getting 500 visitors a day then focus on earning.

  26. d4 team says

    Hello All,

    Thanks to the article writer and thanks to all the people commented above. Good info all around. But we have a question…

    Thank again.

  31. says

    Thanks a lot for the information. I am also a blogger and i am fond of learning the new ways of how i can manage my site to earn better. This blog has provided this option in a better way.

  32. says

    Hmm,

    List is fine, although I’m not completely agree with its order.

    Anyhow, after trying good half of the network, I settled on Nster.com for my website and on Nster+Zemanta for my blogs.

  33. says

    very nice info, it will decrease tension for everyone who is using google adsense, because if adsense not approve their site, these sites are still option for earn money…..
    good valuable post…..

    • says

      Thank you Imran for your comment. Yes if websites are not getting approved on AdSense then they have to look other options and CPM ads are good way to make money for high traffic website.

  34. says

    Hey which ad network shall I try if I get 1,000 to 1,500 impressions daily which ad networks pays 2$ for 1000 impressions and who’s payout is also less.

    • says

      Earning $2 per CPM is not difficult but it all depends on how much traffic you get and from which country you are getting most of the traffic. Most of the CPM ads pay between $0.10 to $0.50. Networks like Tribal Fusion, Advertising, Casale Media etc pay good CPM rates but their requirements are very high.

      • says

        Ravi how is yllix.com their minimum payout is just $1 and they pay every week.Guys you must try yllix.com they also have a very good support :)

        • says

          Hello Sanket, Sorry but I don’t know much about yllix.com. If they are paying $1 per CPM then this is great rates, much better then well known CPM networks.

          • says

  35. says

    my site more than 50000 page view per month but google absence don’t approve my account so tell me which cpm ads network good for me I am waiting for replay

    • says

      Hello Tarun, Your website can be approved on many CPM network, but I will suggest you to find the reasons why your website is not accepted in AdSense. You can go with affiliate marketing as CPM ads will not help you earn any big money.

  36. says

    Hey Ravi can you tell me that why Value Click Media is rejecting me their minimum requirement is 100 visitors per day and I get 1000 + visitors per day so why are they rejecting me do they also require 6 months old site ? my site is just 4 months old … Waiting for your reply :)

    • says

      Hi Sanket, Their can be lot of reasons, it can be low traffic, traffic from a single country (which they don’t accept), quality of the website etc. Value click can tell why exactly they are rejecting your application, just as them.

  37. Riz says

    What is the minimum requirement for Advertising.com ? and whic ad network do you recommend for a site with 1,000 visitors/day ?

  38. Usman says

    Hi
    dudes i have daily 50000 visitors recently i’m blocked with google adsense please suggest me best advesting company, 80% visitors from USA UK AUS?
    please suggest me best adsesne alternative?

  39. says

    I think Tribal Fusion is the best one for all. For Indian publishers, Adversal is the best choice no doubt.
    Thanks a lot for great post.

  40. says

    Don\’t think too much about Google AdSense! Just try with docstoc or bukisa. I think you can get approved Google AdSense account within 1 or 2 days from there.Best of luck.

  41. says

    Can you suggest me the best CPM for Asian with high rates? I have about 1,000-2,000 visitors per day in my blogshop. I tried Yllix Media before but their rates seems low. Sometimes it high (pending earning), but recently drops down too low after confirmed their earning.

    Now i’m used Bidvertiser because seems legit & paid others. But I don’t know about their rates. What do you think?

    Thanks :)

    • says

      Hello Anna, You can use CPM along with PPC, no issue. From earning point PPC is best for low traffic website. CPM ads pay less for small traffic, but as your traffic goes up you can make much better than PPC.

    • says

      Hello, it depends on how much traffic you get. Every CPM network has minimum traffic requirements. If your site fulfills their requirement, you can opt that network.

      Everyone ask same question about CPM ads, and I want to clear one thing to everyone that CPM is not that good as most of you think. Most of the networks only pay $0.10 to $0.50 per CPM, which is very low.

      CPM ads are good when you get lot of traffic than CPM rates can go up which can pay $1.0 or $5 or much more.

  42. says

    Nice List of CPM ad network and thank your for sharing But these all seems good for Big Publishers who have already tons of traffic. What about Us like Small Publishers

  43. says

    We wanted to know about how much does Google charge to put Banner ad? What is the Cost per 1000 impressions? We have recently launched a site Lenabechna.com and wanted to put some ads on other sites. However some of the high traffic sites told us of CPM of $2.5 which seems to be slightly high. So we wanted to know cheaper solutions for the same.

    Thanks

  44. says

    Hello Ravi nice blog here a shout out from Europe Holland.

    I was also looking for alternatives than adsense.

    But they pay only $$$ not so good because $$$ less than €€€

    i think $10=€7,30 on moment i posted this :-(

  45. says

    Hello Ravi,

    Good article and most importantly you answered almost all queries of your readers. That’s really good part of you and really appreciable.

    Now my question. Ravi, are these CPM ad networks only approve blogs or they also approve/accept classified websites (India) as well? And if they approve, are there any sort of special requirements for classifieds?

    Hopefully I will get my query solved.

    Thanks buddy for sharing you exp and knowledge.

    • says

      Hello Umesh, Any network can accept classifieds site, if they allow. You have to check their requirement. If your site gets quality traffic, networks can easily accept your site.

  46. says

    Hi Ravi, could you give me even just a few list of ads network for small publisher like me? My sites are just started and got few visitors about 5,000 visits per month.

    • says

      Hello, for 5000 visitors per month I will recommend to go with pay per click program. With CPM ads you can not earning good money with low traffic.

  47. says

    Well, I tried for tribal fusion, and they replied me that they need 500,000 unique visitors each month to approve the site.. Which is quite hard to get easily. Whatever, if someone has that much, can try. Hopefully, they will approve.

  48. Adrian says

    No need to worry Mona. There are at leat 100 hundread ad networks outhere. If you have some quality websites almost all of them will give you big money. I monetize my websites with Adpepper and CPMoz and i’m quite happy with them. Some of the networks are targeting only the big fish outhere and that is why the 500,000 limit exist

  49. says

    IS THERE ANY GOOD CPM MY DAILY VISITOR IS AROUN 5000 PER DAY AND MONTHLY IS AROUND 150000 CAN U SUGGEST ME ANY GOOD CPM WHICH IS LEGIT AND PAY PROPERLY MY WEBSITE IS SURFBITCO.IN

  50. says

  51. fahad says

    hello ravi ,

    i wanted to ask , if i site receive say 450 000 page views per days and is a free classified site and target audience is 1 country like pakistan , how much per day it can earn from say adsense?

    regards

    • says

      Hello Fahad, It all depends on niche, country and content. As you are asking for AdSense if we assume you are getting 1% CTR on your ads then it will be 4500 clicks per day and if you are getting lowest pay say $0.05 so 4500*0.05=$225 per day, if I have not calculated it wrong.

  52. says

    Hi Every One, I was looking for a good advertising agency for my new uploaded website, while searching on internet I pass through this blog and I really appreciate that how beautifully everyone explained about this topic. I just want to know, why it is necessary to place some ads on your website or blog of your own country?

    Regards,

    • says

      Hello Usman, If you are using Ads like AdSense or CPM ads which you do not control by your own then you don’t need to manage your ads. But if you are using affiliate banners and most of the traffic comes from an particular country than you want to show ads related to your site niche and which are useful for that contry visitors.

  53. says

    They are the best ones. I think you also need to list the gloadmarket.com CPM + CPC ad Network I find that one the best for the small and new publishers. Thanks for your article, It’s very informative.

  54. Luke says

    I´ve using adtomatik.com for two months ago.I had the best eCPM performances with this adnetwork. Do you know it?

  55. Amit Kumar says

    My site have worldwide traffic 1 lakh UV PER DAY 50% US and other 50% is mix….Any one suggest best CPM company… this site is related to Images and videos (note: site is adsense ban last year?

  56. says

    Nice article , I have a website openadcenter.org and I still don’t get a lot of visitors so I cannot apply for some of those ad networks, and google ad sense gives very little payment.
    so I am still wondering what is the best ad network for my case

  57. Daniel says

    Adtomatik is the best,if you want higher fill rates and best ecpm than others ad networks, then what are you waiting for? Use adtomatik.

  58. says

    Great list buddy. Tribal Fusion, without any doubt, is the best CPM network available out there as well as the best AdSense alternative right now. I’ve been using it on some of my blogs and getting always $1.5 per 1k impressions.

  59. says

    Great list indeed. But sometimes is better to try also the smaller ones because the bog ones usually target the top countries level traffic. And the smaller ones usually pay quickly because they want to attract as much publishers as they can.

  60. says

    awesome post small website owners. i need this list of cpm network in order to know how uncome from my site .thanks a lot for this unique article. this site is very useful for small and medium site owners
