On average, how many pageviews per month does your site do?
Anything else you'd like us to know?
We take privacy seriously and we don't share your email. You aren't going to be added to any mailing lists.

Still have questions?

What are the steps?

  1. Fill out the publisher form. Then we'll evaluate your site and get back to you with any questions.
  2. Once you're approved, we create an account for you that shows test ads. You integrate our client into your site, let us know, and we review your placement.
  3. Once we've approved your site, paid ads start showing. After you've made $50, we send you money!

How much will I make?

Generally publishers see around $2.00 per 1,000 pageviews (CPM), assuming most of your traffic is from the EU & North America. These numbers will vary based on your audience and topics that you write about.

Any important policies?

When you show an ad on your site:

  • EthicalAds should be the only ad network on your site (your own promotions are fine)
  • 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, so you need that amount to receive a payment.

See our full Payout Policy.
