    Hello guys, at the moment I'm running adsense on my blog and I read about mediavine very good reviews. I read their earnings increased 2x using mediavine.

    Anyone using mediavine after adsense? Also is it good for indian traffic?

    I have no experience with Mediavine, but I switched to Adthrive a week ago, for the biggest website I run.
    So far the earnings are MUCH better than with Adsense, but let's see over a longer period.
    I may post a short case study (comparison) after the first month, including the impact on site metrics and conversions.

    Mediavine (or Adthrive) won't accept you unless the majority of your traffic comes from tier 1 countries, especially US. If the majority is from India, do not waste time applying.

    Basically, any company like Mediavine will pay MUCH better than just AdSense alone. IMO, the greatest value with this companies are the support that you get. You actually get to talk to real human beings that will help you whenever you have any problems with your site. Unlike with AdSense alone who just points you to a google answers link which gives very vague answers.

    You should go and email their support, give them read-only access to your analytics account so they can study your visitor trend/quality. If you have a site that actually gives VALUE to visitors, they will accept you regardless of your visitor's country - even India.

    I use a different company tho.

    Mediavine won't accept you with traffic that comes primarily from India. If you have 35%US (and rest India), you may get a chance, with a superb quality content.

    But since sites with primarily Indian traffic are not accepted by American/European Ad management companies, it is impossible to make any comparison in this case.

    Mediavine is not an ad network, but a mediation company that provides you with the demand and taking % from the revenue. The rev-share basis is normal and every ad network does that (without managing anything for you). I don't have experience with Mediavine, but I assume you would benefit more as they will manage the ads for you and most probably not just with AdSense demand.

    For Indian traffic adsense is best ad network because they have to many advertisers. +1 for Google adsense.

    Mediavine and Adthrive are Ad Management companies that managed programmatic demand for publishers In Tier 1 countries only. If your not US or Uk based don’t waste your time.

    these companies obviously will make way more money then Adsense if u fit their requirements

    Mediavine for sure. At least double, but to enter Mediavine you need a lot of US traffic.

    People still mostly use Adsense as its audience is diversified.
    Mediavine focuses more on USA leads
