EthicalAds

A developer-focused, privacy-obsessed ad network from the fine folks at Read the Docs

Reach

We are expanding the same great ads used by Read the Docs into a larger ad network. With reach to over 35 million developer impressions each month, we are an ad network for developers by developers.

Relevance

Every advertiser and publisher is hand approved to ensure that every ad is relevant and interesting and our audience remains 100% developers.

Respect

We believe good advertising should compliment content and never get in the way. That's why we built a network that complies with AcceptableAds, BetterAds, and DoNotTrack.

Over 1 billion ads served since 2016

We have been running a high scale advertising network for over 4 years on our first party sites.
We're now ready to expand to additional publishers to take open source sustainability to the next level.

JSBin is a live-updating text editor for Javascript. They use our fixed footer text ad to help make their open source project sustainable.

Code the Web teaches people how to create content on the web. They use our text ad in their sidebar to monetize this content and keep producing.

Flask is one of the most popular Python web development frameworks. They use our image ad in their sidebar to get funding for their community to maintain their software.
