Advertising Without Compromise

Privacy-focused advertising for developers from the fine folks at Read the Docs

Advertise with us

Reach developers

With reach to over 35 million developer impressions each month, we are an ad network for developers by developers.

Focused and relevant

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


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

Advertisers have success by targeting developers on the sites they frequent, without being blocked.

Developers trust our ads because our code is open source, and we're developers ourselves.

Earn money from your site

Our EthicalAds network is a great place to generate revenue while increasing the privacy of the internet. We value the work you do in the tech industry, and want to let you focus on making it better without worrying about sustainability.


Developer-focused sites only

We focus exclusively on advertising to developers and showing high quality ads on the sites developers visit. This keeps all of our ads well-targeted and relevant. Taking this a step further, we allow niche content targeting to topics like data science or web development to get better results for advertisers and more money for publishers.
