AdNetwork.net Quick Facts:
The network’s inventory focuses heavily on North and Latin American audiences, though their reach is global serving more than 5.2 impressions per month. They support most regular campaign models including CPC, CPM, CPL and CPA.
Publishers are only required to have 1,000 page views per month in order to qualify and are paid an unspecified percentage of what advertising generates on their sites depending on how the site performs, how many unique users it has and market conditions.
AdNetwork.net pays publishers through PayPal or via wire transfer on a NET 45 schedule promising that after installation “You’ll start earning limitless amounts of money“. However, in the past there have been several complaints about payment delays around the web.
Their dashboard and reporting tools are all accessed through Nextlide, a decent automated platform that simplifies installation and control but admittedly does not allow for much customization to their already limited ad options.
Publishers can actually sign up and access the whole Nextlide system BEFORE they even get accepted. This can provide some much needed insight on how AdNetwork.net works, however, it is not clear whether this privilege is intended or if it’s due to an oversight in design; the latter is worrying!
Their official website is poor and confusing, to say the least. With placeholder links for their terms and conditions, their privacy statement and even their own sitemap they really make a poor impression on potential publishers. Throughout their website there are no pages for terms, privacy or sitemap and visitors are instead redirected to other, seemingly random pages when they try to click on the supposedly functional links.
It seems that with such low minimum requirements AdNetwork.net is hospitable to small publishers and can provide a viable website monetization route for sites with North American or Latin American audiences. However, considering their potential appeal to newbie publishers, AdNetwork.net’s official website is poor to the point that it almost feels like they are sabotaging their own efforts to recruit small publishers!
