PulsePoint (Contextweb) CPM Publisher Network Review

PulsePoint (Contextweb) CPM Publisher Network Review
PulsePoint is a CPM based ad network which primarily serves banner ads on websites and blog. ContextWeb was merged with PulsePoint and now both the network runs in a combined manner. PulsePoint provides ads for over 12,000 ad servers and is used on over 25,000 sites across the globe. According to the site stats, more than 30 Billion impressions are served every month on different platforms. Other than banner ads the network also offers enterprise email platform.

Ad types
Banner ads
Revenue method
Minimum payout
Payment method
PayPal, wired transfer
Site review before approval
Max no of ads per page
Site requirements
Should be on top level domain
Should be family friendly site
Runs in parallel with AdSense


  • User can set the asking price for ads
  • Use of backup codes
  • Easy control of ad tags
  • Extensive reports


  • Poor fill rate
  • Suitable for sites with high traffic from USA, UK

My Experience:

I started using pulsepoint earlier this month. When I first set up ads from this network I thought that this was another scam network which will serve ads and keep the payout at a very high level so that publishers never achieve the target and it will become profitable for the company. I almost did not believe that the asking price can be set by the publisher himself.

But I have to accept that this network is working. Initially when I set up ads, there was no review for the site which made me think so. But then after I set the asking price and placed the ad code on my blog, ads started appearing instantaneously. Only backup free ads were served as I did not set up my backup ad tags. 

So I figured out how this network works. You are setting a asking price and only those advertisers who are willing pay for that asking price; their ads will be served or else your back up ads will appear.

But still there is one thing that is preventing you from making money. That is the demography of your traffic. You need to have lot of traffic from USA and UK to be successful with this network. The best thing you can do is put up this network’s ads and in the back up tag place the code of Google AdSense or any other alternative network you may be using and you will generate revenue on both the networks.

Rating: [3/5] ★★★☆☆
Verdict: Good and trustable network if you have volume of traffic from USA and UK.

Clicksor ( Advertising Network Review

Clicksor ( Advertising Network Review
Clicksor is one of the biggest ad serving network, which has a large number of blogger and websites with not original content but has a large number of impressions per day. While I was doing research on internet about the best Google ad-sense alternative, almost all the search result that appeared had mentioned clicksor in it. I have been using clicksor on my other blog for over one year now, and I must say this has been a disappointment! 

Primarily, I do not believe in any network that has referral program strategy to market their site. If a site is good, automatically people will come and join their site and there will be no need for the site to roll out affiliate marketing to get more users to the site. But, initially to gain users and make the platform popular, they may use affiliate marketing. But clicksor still use affiliate strategy. 

Yesup groups own clicksor and when you sign up for clicksor, automatically you will be signed up for yesup group too (I don’t know why they do that) and once you have given basic information, you can go in and create ads unit.

How to Place Your Ad Code Inside Your Blogger Template

When I wanted to once place an ad code that I generated from AdBrite just below the title of my post, where the ad will get maximum exposure, I was not able to save my template successfully. Blogger kept showing me some error related to this and I gave up placing the banner inside of the template and I added a new HTML/Java Script widget from the layouts tab and placed the ad banner.

The warning that the blogger showed was:

Error parsing XML, line 1989, column 82: The reference to entity "cwrun" must end with the ';' delimiter.

I looked for some online help and I found out that the error in the template is due to the presence of certain elements on the code such as '&' '<' '>' etc..

How to add a YouTube subscribe button widget on your blog?YouTube is the most famous network on which you can share your videos. YouTube have been one of the greatest supports for blogging and bloggers. When I started my youtbue channel, I did not search for YouTube subscribe video to put on blogger. I was wondering if there were a subscribe button to put up on blog or website, though I didn’t search for it.

Today, when I visited a site, I found that they have added a YouTube subscribe button on their site to make people aware that they are social on YouTube. The widget looks simple with your YouTube profile picture and a subscribe button. It also shows how many videos you have on your channel and how many subscribers follow you on YouTube.
