Exoclick

Exoclick offers lower minimum payouts than some of its competitors and at a weekly frequency. In addition, there are plenty of ad options to choose from, with native advertising, instant messaging, in-stream and pre-video inventory acting as luxuries on top of regular offerings like banners and pop-unders.

Much like every network, Exoclick accepts desktop and mobile traffic via a CPM model and for those favouring a strong, well-rounded service, it’s a good place to start.

Pros:

  • Works with clean ads with no malware or viruses
  • Pays once per week
  • Beneficial for adult traffic (it has one of the biggest inventory for it)
  • CPM rates are great

Cons:

  • You can reach their support team only via email
  • They mainly lean towards adult websites

AdsTerra

AdsTerra can be seen as a good option when it comes to service and reliability. Unfortunately, a dip into the waters looks off the cards, thanks to a hefty minimum payout of $100 delivered bi-weekly.

For those that do take the plunge, the network’s offering of push-ups, interstitials and a huge breadth of payment options (including wire transfer, PayPal, Bitcoin and Webmoney) helps to create a strong offering, but in the favour of publishers that really know how to earn.

Adsterra homepage

Pros:

  • You can request back URLs for unsold traffic
  • For both mobile and desktop traffic, there are great CPM rates
  • Their support team works round the clock
  • Detailed real-time statistics could become a great tool for any webmaster

Cons:

  • They require you to earn at least $100 in order to withdraw money

HillltopAds

Some time ago, HilltopAds was different from many of its competitors due to only dealing with pop-unders. However, for the time being, they offer an expanded range of ad formats that includes push notifications, direct link, video ads, native ads, and banners.  The company offers many of the trappings of a solid CPM network, including the acceptance of desktop and mobile traffic, a referral program offering a 5% commission boost for the referrer, and plenty of payment options for a minimum earning of $50, which is delivered weekly.

Pros:

TrafficForce

TrafficForce is another network which could be held back by some big minimum earnings and a lengthy wait to get paid.

On the other hand, its offering of video and in-text ads could represent a benefit for certain publishers, while the self-service panel can alleviate the concerns brought on by a generally below-par level of support.

trafficforce homepage

Pros:

  • They offer excellent CPM rates for pop-unders and banners
  • For unsold traffic, they offer back URLs
  • You can Skype with the support team if necessary

Cons:

  • The fill-rate leaves much to be desired
  • You’ll need to get at least $100 to withdraw money from your account
  • No referral program available

JuicyAds

Heading up the list of benefits for JuicyAds is a referral program offering a 20% commission boost for publishers that get others to sign up. This could be a key differentiating factor along with minimum payouts of $25, delivered on request.

Pros:

  • If you have traffic from Asia or Russia, they can offer you good CPM rates
  • You can also request back URLs for unsold traffic
  • It is a self-service program, you are in charge of all ad campaigns
  • You’d need only $25 in order to withdraw your earnings, payments are made by request
  • Quite beneficial referral program (20% from their commission)

Cons:

  • Support is only by email
  • It can be hard to get the grasp of their admin panel

DoublePimp

DoublePimp is home to some of the highest CPMs in the adult niche. However, some publishers may be put off by the lack of a referral program and not exquisite range of ad types. Even so, mind that a minimum payout here is only $50, with good payment options and there is also a self-service function to boot.

doublepimp

Pros:

  • If you have an adult portal, they offer you the highest CPM rates in this niche
  • They provide their clients with reliable support via Skype

Cons:

  • Tags are provided by anyone but the manager
  • They do not offer any kind of referral partnership

  1. No trafficjunky.com

  2. Exoclick has automated website approval I think. What I most like about them is they are already trying to make their network better. Recently they changed their admin panel which tells publisher how much will we earn this month. It is a great way to get a clear idea. I am still happy with its performance.

      Thanks for your feedback! We are happy to hear it 🙂

  3. I think I should use Juicyads or Plugrush for my site. I monetize my twitter traffic with Juicyads and Plugrush and I get like $3 for every 1k visitors from twitter.

  4. Tested all of these network on my main site videoitaliani.net and other 20 on my network, all works, but exoclick pay better and in EURO. Testing Hiltop ads since once week and i’m pretty happy for the moment. Important at the moment is that they implement a reliable, antiadblock solution.

  5. Reporo is now fully self serve!

    Thank, Its Relay nice and valuable for me

  12. trafficjunky.com payout is too slow and user support is not user friendly.

  13. Stumbled across this article as very recently I dived into the Adult Tube industry. Being a newbie I am trying to read as much content as possible. One problem I am finding is that I have an older men niche and most ads offered are of young guys…it sort of clashes with my niche. Do you know if any Adult Ad Companies offer ads that are related to older men?
