Simple Integration

Once approved as a publisher, you put a small JavaScript snippet on your site and then start making money right away.

Relevant Ads

We don't use cookies to track users, but we match ads based on the content of your pages. This gives your users ultimate privacy and relevant ads, the best of both worlds.

Publisher Focused

We started as a publisher, and our EthicalAds still run on all Read the Docs sites. We believe in supporting open source, because we're open source devs ourselves.

Multiple ad formats

We have options for ad formats that include text-only or image+text. This is an example ad, but we have a few different display options to best fit the design of your site.

How do I get started?

Simply fill out our publisher signup form with some information, and we'll get back to you right away.

How much will I make?

These numbers will vary based on your audience and topics that you write about. Generally we are able to offer around $1-1.50 per 1,000 pageviews (CPM), assuming a majority of US and European traffic.

Any policies on showing ads?

When you show an ad on your site:

  • EthicalAds should be the only ad on your site
  • The ad should appear when the user first visits, above the fold, on both desktop and mobile. You can disable the ad on mobile if this isn't possible.
  • You are welcome to display a different ad as a fallback if EthicalAds doesn't have a paid ad to show on your property.

How can I be paid?

We currently support payment via PayPal, OpenCollective, Wire transfer, and check. Our minimum payment to publishers is currently $50. We're still getting our payment systems automated, so this number will probably get lower in the future.
