AdsOptimal is one of the emerging and best CPM Ad networks available. So, I have thought to write an article on AdsOptimal review. Making money from a blog is a very tedious task. There are many ways out there to monetize your blog on basis of CPC, CPS, CPA models such as Google AdSense, Infolinks, and Affiliate marketing etc. But the problem is that getting approval from Google AdSense and other popular ad tycoons is a very difficult job.
On the other hand, affiliate marketing works on basis of sales and leads. You will be paid only if you generate any sale or lead. If your traffic is very low or does not have targeted traffic, it is very difficult to earn from affiliate marketing. So, what to do in these scenarios? The solution to such problems is going with CPM Ad Networks and AdsOptimal is one of them.
I am breaking this article into different subsection for better understanding.

1) What Are CPM Ad Networks?
CPM stands for cost per milli impressions. It is one of the best methods for earning money from every last impression you get on your website. This means that even if your readers are not clicking on ads on your blogs, you will still be paid. It is a good way to make money from website traffic.
Here is the formula for calculating revenue:
CPM= (Cost*1000)/Total Impressions
E.g. If you get 50000 visitors per day and total of 50000 page views, and you are getting CPM rates of $2 then your earning will be – 50000/1000 = 50 CPM x $2 = $100 per day.
It is hard to predict what will be CPM rates. It can be fixed or can be different depending upon advertisers, your traffic sources, targeted countries and your website niche etc. But the good news is AdsOptimal CPM rate is very high.

AdsOptimal revenue model is based on Impressions basis and clicks.

Page level Ads are basically to monetize your Mobile traffic. There are total 4 types of Page level Ads. You can choose any of them. Once you paste the ad code on your site, AdsOptimal will automatically show Page level ads at optimal times when they’re likely to perform better. You, as a publisher, do not need to worry about that.

You can choose any advertisement format from available Ad formats. To monetize your Mobile and Desktop traffic both Inline Ads are best option. Inline ads can run together with Page-Level ads.
Available Ad sizes :
300×250 (Medium Rectangle)
300×100 (3:1 Rectangle)
160×600 (Wide Skyscraper)
320×50 (Small Leaderboard)
6) Glimpse Of AdsOptimal Dashboard
I found AdsOptimal interface to be very simple and clean. There are different navigation tabs available which you can utilize as per your need.
- </> Get Code
The Get Code page has a box for filling up your domain names, and AdsOptimal will generate their position under various aspects like Alexa Global Rank, Google Page Rank, Website Review Status, Premium Status and Integration status.
You can see the accounts have been categorized as Gold, Silver, and Bronze to represent the varying level of services available for each. By default, it will be Bronze. The gold account holder is liable for adding premium sites with excellent reputation score, schedule their payout for 15 days after the month end, and are also reached back by the support team in 2 business days. While the payment schedule stands for 24 days after the month end, in the case of a silver or bronze account holder.
Once your account is fully approved, the integration status will turn into green. Then you can get code and embed within your blog and start making money. It can be turned to be the best CPM ad network for Indian traffic as well if you get premium ads.
Insights section provides the various analysis on your earning and monetizing capacity of your domain. You can see stats on per day, week and month basis. The Account Earning section on the right-hand side gives out additional pay details relating to pending earnings, issued payout, extra credit and the amount earned under referral bonus.
Note: This snapshot is the taken before I embedded my ad code with my blog. So, there are no insight reports. I will update it later on.
7) AdsOptimal Payment Methods
AdsOptimal provides two payment methods – Paypal or Check. To update your preferred payment method, go to payment section and select the desired mode.
Below is the screenshot:
If you want to use Paypal to withdraw money, then just enter your Paypal email address. However, if you want it through Check then you will need to provide the accurate address details so that check can be delivered to your address. I have just joined the AdsOptimal ad network, I will share AdsOptimal payment proof soon.
Another good thing about using AdsOptimal is that the restricted threshold value is very low. You can withdraw your earning once your earning reaches 50$. Most of the major Ad networks have a very high minimum payout. E.g. Google Adsense or Media.net pays you when you reach $100. So, it is good to start monetizing your blog with AdsOptimal too.
