When monetizing your site, think twice


Are you thinking of monetizing your website? At The Canadian, we have sought conduct research on "CPM networks".

When seeking to "monetize" websites, business owners and advertising departments need to be aware of "CPM scams".

As a publisher, you may therefore never obtain the necessary threshold to be paid. Such CPM networks seek to cynically serve their ads onto publisher sites for free.

Publishers that participate in “bait and switch” inspired CPM networks earn enough to get paid. But, then the CPM network finds a way not to pay the publisher.

Adbrite refused to reply to our representations on their vexatious claims which sought to link sex education to “pornography”.
