This week, we are releasing Promoted Content, a new feature that will help you earn revenue from your website by integrating relevant sponsored content from third party advertisers into the Related Content app. These high-quality native ads are mobile responsive and accommodate any site layout. Plus, because of our large network of sites, we are able to negotiate better rates with our advertising partners, so you get a greater return when you use our apps.

We activated the app settings today, so you can make changes, add your payment information and locate revenue reporting before ads become available. Read on to find out how to access the app controls today and, as always, feel free to send us an email if you need help!

    I’ve looked at the page you listed Devin and I cannot find the ‘amounts’ at all…am I being blind?

    Hello there Stella,

    To address your question more accurately: Advertisers pay on a cost-per-click (CPC) basis. This means that every time one of your readers clicks on an ad in our related content app, you the publisher will be compensated.

    There is no simple dollar amount that every click is worth. This is due to the many factors that go into the ‘price’ of a click, such as advertiser demand, budget, targeting, visitor quality, conversions, and many other things.

    If you would like to determine the ‘average’ price-per-click that your site generates, you can simply divide your total revenue earned by the total paid clicks for that same time period.

    Our goal is to ensure our monetization products deliver results for both our publishers and advertisers, and we will continue to evaluate what works best to maximize revenue for you and inform you as we do!
