We started as a publisher, and still run ethical ads on all our sites. We believe in supporting open source, because we're open source devs ourselves.
One tasteful ad
We only show one ad per page, because developers don't want ads all over their sites. Advertising is a trade-off that we choose, to make our projects more sustainable. We don't compromise on privacy though.

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 publishers see around $2.00 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.
- The ad should not disrupt the natural reading flow of the page. It should be placed above, beside or below the main content, not within it.
See our full Ad Display Policy.
How can I be paid?
We currently support payment via PayPal, OpenCollective, and Wire transfer. 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.
