TrafficBroker Ad Network Review
TrafficBroker is an advertising network that publishers can use to monetize both their desktop and mobile traffic. Each user can choose between popunders, interstitials, banners, redirects and instant messenger options, which makes for a good selection of inventory. There is also a referral program offering 5% of a new publisher’s earnings for every party that connects them to the network.
Publishers must earn a minimum of $100 to see any returns from their activity – this being the lowest amount to withdraw – with monthly transactions available to be made through PayPal, Paxum, Payoneer and wire transfer.
- Instant messenger
- Mobile redirect
CPM (Cost per mille)
Desktop and mobile
Any user can request money from their TrafficBroker account to be transferred to PayPal, Paxum and Payoneer, providing they have met the minimum earning of $100. For wire transfers, the minimum is $1000. All payments are available on a monthly schedule, with transactions taking place at the start of each month, between the 1st – 10th of the month after the minimum was met.
TrafficBroker does not claim any charges for making payments from its accounts to any given platform, although the usual rules of checking for fees on the other side should apply. These can scale up to big fees in the case of wire transfers above the $1000 minimum, so each user should decide on a cost-effective method to transact.
Customer support on TrafficBroker is available through two main methods. For lengthier queries that can wait a day or two for a reply, it’s probably best to use the email option. For shorter questions which either need to be answered quickly or will not require much input from support, the group offers a live chat function via its Skype account.
Terms, Conditions, and Other Notes:
TrafficBroker does not disclose any terms of service for its publishers – only advertisers have a list of rules to follow when connecting with the platform. From our own experience, here are some of the things that are typically banned from ad networks:
- Anything promoting illegal activity, through site content or sales of certain goods.
- Stuffing lots of ads onto a page and without any content to back them up. As a bit of guidance, some networks feel more than six ads per page is too much.
- Sites managing very low traffic. Anything less than 1000 visitors a day might fall into this category.
- Sites based on free blogging platforms.
- Long periods (usually between 6-12 months) of inactivity.
In most cases any users found to be doing the above will face a suspension of their account. However, in some cases there are additional charges to contend with, as many blackhat techniques can be used to generate extra income.

- Referral program for maximizing earnings
- Self-service platform

TrafficBroker is a network offering plenty of reasons for publishers to join. One of its biggest benefits is the sheer range of ad formats that each user can choose between, ranging from regular options like popunders and interstitials, across to instant messenger and redirects. A good selection also concerns the payment platforms, which include PayPal, Paxum and Payoneer as well as wire transfer.
Things aren’t so good on the other areas around payments. Each publisher has to earn $100 to make a withdrawal, with this only available on a monthly basis. Not only this, for wire transfers the minimum rises to $1000. With TrafficBroker failing to match its competitors for rates of CPM, having such a big minimum earning is a pretty important point for those who don’t attract a great deal of traffic.
It isn’t all bad news, though, as publishers can use a referral program to top up what they earn through their own advertising. This offers 5% of a new site’s commission to the publisher that referred them – a percentage which can equal to a lot of money over the course of a few months.
Overall, we believe there are enough positives to talk about TrafficBroker in a good way, although the network does have a few areas to improve on.
