    Which of these networks can actually yield ROI and are not filled with spam?

    None of them filled with spam.
    Your ROI depends on the quality of your campaigns and skills of your ad ops person.

    @se900se what is your recommendation for a survey/coupons site with 25k per month organic traffic and Media.net monetization until now? Here a statistics from the Media from the last seven days: http://prntscr.com/ms16vm

    I am happy with the results, but I want to test and the second network. The website was banned from Adsense for invalid traffic. I opened a new Adsense account with the different site, address, etc. but the site is not accepted(blacklisted maybe?).

    If the domain was blacklisted by AdSense all new AdSense accounts will get banned/disapproved once you add this site
    Media.net works good as additional, but not a main ad network.

    It is hard to suggest anything without knowing more about your site.

    Does Media.net allow rollback if it can't display an ad above £X CPM?

    You can create and manage passbacks through ad server with any network.

    Do they all offer the option, or do you need a bit of know-how in coding?

    Some ad networks have it right on a dashboard, just a field where you insert the ad code from other ad network to pass on, others - you need to contact account rep, some don’t provide at all, so you do that via ad server.

    @se900se what would be the first 5-10 networks you'd recommend I try, to work alongside (rollback) with Adsense? Content is across the board and so can be health, games, movies, tech etc.

    However, the audience are not generally in 'buying mode' and therefore sales type ads I think would be least effective.

    I tried Media.net and they paid about 0.0001 per click.

    You can prevent specific types of ads to be shown on the site, however ads targeted by advertisers and if users see it > there’s a chance of click. Usually I prevent ads from competitors e.g. if this is a travel site I wouldn’t want other travel site to advertise to my audience.

    In terms of ad networks: Teads is good for Video, Outbrain is good for native, Spoutable is good for non standard ads, Oath is good for display.

    As for the passbacks (display only): Criteo, Sovrn, Oath and any other display ad network.

    But you don’t want to pick just this or that network, you can literally pick all of them and only after testing and running them in your site you will know how well they perform for you.

    Thanks for that, I'll dive in.

    One thing I've noticed - not all ad networks give an option for 'responsive' ads. I use responsive ads with Adsense as that's often the most sensible option.

    It's 2019, so It's strange that some don't offer it. For instance, sovrn don't appear to offer it, therefore how does the rollback work in that situation, if the rollback Adsense ad is a responsive one?

    And do you happen to know if any networks you recommended further up do offer responsive?

    Responsive ads could also be set up through Google Ad Manager even if the option is not available by the ad network itself (it most cases they don't bother about it).
    When X size is not available it pulls ad with a different size.
    You can set as passbacks responsive AdSense units and they will work just fine!

    Responsive ads do not fit every site/layout, e.g. some spaces would only work for 160x600 or 300x250, but won't work for 970x250. By setting specific sizes you can set only those that fit your design.

    Not sure I've read that correctly, but that's exactly what Responsive Ads are. They change size depending on what the visitor is using - mobile, tablet, laptop etc. I've not had a problem in the years I've been using them and it takes a lot of ballache away from having to test every different size that the ad network offers.

    Like a 300x250 generally fits all, but larger skyscraper ads can work better on large monitors. A responsive google ad changes accordingly.

    I don't have a Google Ad Manager Account.

    What I meant is that you can restrict 'responsiveness' to specific sizes.
    E.g. exclude 300x250 and allow only 320x50 or vice versa.

    You may need to get an account, though a lot depends on how much traffic you have. The more traffic - the more sophisticated your setup for monetization would be.

    My websites are responsive, which would mean if I went with a 'one size fits all', it would probably have to be the 300x250 - that size fits mobiles and anything bigger. It's just a bit limited unfortunately, as that size won't work well on all screen sizes. Which is why it surprises me that Ad Networks don't simpy offer the responsive ad unit. It would make life a lot easier for the majority of their customers, one would have thought. It would then simply be:

    1) Create responsive ad unit
    2) Add Adsense responsive ad unit as passback.

    Sorted.

    Maybe it's not crossed their minds.

    If that would be easier or better - that would be implemented already.
    You create responsive units yourself with the help of additional tools. Ability to do that let you have some flexibility that simple responsive units won't provide you.

    Out of the box ads like AdSense are not best for monetization, therefore, they are popular as they don't require a lot of knowledge or skills and provide 'wide' solutions, but have low/average rates.
