Adult Ad Networks Analysis (Pros and Cons)

We know that searching for the best ad network can be a hard task for two reasons: first, because there are lots of choices; second, because (of course) everyone claims to be the best one and sometimes you can’t trust what is said on the forums.

Indeed, we never know who’s responsible for an opinion such as “this Ad Network is the only one Chuck Norris is afraid of”.

Because we care about you, we want to share some adult ad network facts via this impartial review of the biggest ones.

6. PopAds

PopAds is specialized in Internet popunders and popups. It allows you to set the budget, target the visitors and set frequency caps for each campaign.

It also gives you the opportunity to customize your report. The big difference in the targeting option, compared to other Ad Networks, is the possibility to choose the ISP (Internet Service Provider) for each campaign, instead of the mobile carrier. Even so, you’ll mainly get carrier traffic.

The inventory is really huge and you can have a lot of impressions in a short period of time. As you set the target for your campaign, it shows you the traffic estimations you can get, such as your average position and the maximum price your competitors are bidding on. The bid is based on a smart bid, just like in other well-known Ad Networks.

That means you always pay the minimum price in order to guarantee your position.

Yes, there are only pop-ups and popunders, but, with this name, what did you expect?

Purple pigs saddled on the back of a unicorn?

Come on…

7. Zeropark

Zeropark is developed by team behind Voluum. It basically works with 3 types of traffic: push, pop, and domain redirect traffic (described as full page PPV traffic). It has both adult and mainstream traffic, with the majority of traffic being mainstream.

Related: Voluum Review

Even so, the volumes for adult are interesting.

The cost model is CPV (cost per view) on pop and domain redirects and CPC (cost per click) for push. For CPV traffic you pay every time a user views your landing page. When you set your bid, you can see a “visibility bar”, which pretty much lets you know whether or not you’re getting a decent position with this specific bid.

Targeting options include: Geos, keywords, devices, carriers, RON, and others.

Target/Source are basically whitelists. Targets are the placements; sources are the ad exchanges linked to Zeropark. This basically means that sources are sets of targets.

Another interesting characteristic that’s worth mentioning is the full integration of Zeropark with Voluum. You just need to create a campaign in Voluum and choose Zeropark as a traffic source and you’re set: Everything will be tracked correctly, including costs.

More recently, you can even get to optimize your campaigns directly from Voluum. This opens up a whole new array of possibilities you didn’t have before.

8. Pushy-Ads

Pushy-Ads is currently one of the biggest adult ad networks for Push Monetization.

Their key element is the push notifications, a clean, unobtrusive ad format, which allows them to bring mainstream advertisers to adult websites without connecting the two together on the site itself.

Thanks to the worldwide quality advertisers, in addition to Native content recommendation ads, they are able to offer the highest CPM rates in the market.

9. TrafficFactory

This adult Ad Network only has a few adult websites.

However, with 6 billion global daily impressions, there’s enough volume to compete with larger networks like ExoClick.

TrafficFactory’s worst aspects are the spots: 300×100, 338×235, 928×244, and 180×1030, plus video pre-roll. You’ll only find them here but, trust me, once you get used to the way the platform works, you’ll think it’s really interesting.

In addition, they have an AdRate which measures your position relative to the competition. That’s a mix of your bid and your CTR.

Do you know what that means? Either work carefully on your banners or be ready to empty your pockets!

10. Ero-Advertising

With experience, knowledge and inventory, this adult Ad Network could be more intuitively laid out and easy to work with but it’s quite acceptable. You have tons of parameters on the campaign planner as well as targets to explore and “play” with.

The network is also pretty huge and you can blacklist ad spots or domains, create campaigns for only one website (they call it “CPM campaigns” with SmartBid) and buy Flats.

Once you get used to Ero-Advertising and you’ll see that green really is the color money!

11. JuicyAds

It’s an award-winning Ad Network that’s well-known in the business and has good relations with other companies.

That’s all great!

However, the same can’t be said of the platform as a whole. Indeed, it’s easier to find bad aspects rather than great ones. The platform is messy, the network has bad quality, the stats (the few they actually give you) are hard to analyze.

Moreover, since the platform isn’t mobile-oriented, it doesn’t have any mobile banner traffic.

Here’s some positive aspects, though:

a) you can block sources;

b) even if the network has bad quality you can target the specific websites you want and they provide you useful dynamic trackings.

As a Media buyer, I really only care about the stats and info displayed. In the case of JuicyAds, though, I appreciate the fact that they put pictures of the Juicy babes. I know…it may sound shallow…

…I’m sorry, but I’m a guy!!

12. TrafficHunt

Traffic Hunt is a simple Ad Network. It works only with a few premium members area websites. Their stats are really useful for you to understand your campaigns’ behaviour! But you won’t have a great margin to implement creativity in your strategies

Here, you can control bids, banner performance and adjust the bids per website.

You know what that means?

If you wanna be successful, you gotta read and analyze your stats fast!

13. Adamo Ads

This adult Ad Network, created in early 2014, offers both Web and Mobile traffic on Pop, Banners, Instant Messages, Interstitial, Redirects and In-Video ads.

There’s good targeting tools including carrier, device, IP and OS, GEO and site targeting, plus audience segmentation which makes it easy to get your ads in front of engaged users.

Although Adamo have recently improved their publiser network, if you’re a media buyer that’s dedicated to mobile traffic, you may struggle to find the volume you need.

Verdict:

14. Traffic Shop

TrafficShop is an adult network with plenty of features and targeting options. There’s a good range of ad formats for mobile including obile and desktop banners, native ads, popunders, and skimmed (a specific percentage of clicks on a website redirects the users to an offer).

The volumes aren’t exactly huge but it’s simple to work with and all the important info is there (domain names, main targeting options, performance tracking etc.) They’re different from most other popular ad networks in that when you setting your LP URL you need to prepare it first and then link it in the campaign editor.

They also set the bid differently because you don’t set the value by yourself. Instead, you scale up your position and they’ll automatically insert the required bid. They also offer IP ranges which is not all that common.

Yes, they’re different, but not goofy-style different and we appreciate that!

15. TrafficJunky

Mindgeek big-sharks’ Ad Network. First of all, we gotta thank them for changing their platform. The one that’s live now is pretty interesting and far better than the old version.

The campaign creator is simple, clear and has useful features. I like that they show you the dynamic tracking when you put in your URL because on many sites you have to go the help section or explore the website.

Regarding the banners, you can use jpg, gif, png, iframes or rich media. You can use your banner bank or upload them directly with the browsing option. They’re not perfect, though: Their low point rears its ugly head when you take a swing at spot selection. Indeed, they only let you promote on their own network.

You can pick a specific site or create a RON campaign, and they make it all better with a hell of a high point: You can see the targeting and bids of the other advertisers.

In conclusion, except for some few low points, TrafficJunky is a good platform that has been much improved over the years.

16. Adbucks

An Ad Network that’s part of BrandReach. Let’s dive in and check what it’s all about.

The main page is pretty simple: all you’ve gotta do is check the campaigns’ list and the stats.

Let’s create a campaign!

Once you start, you’ll see the list of Publishers: mainly Premium, except Xhamster. There isn’t much.

You can also estimate the traffic you’ll get according to the targeting but doing so will depress you once you see the traffic volumes. The campaign creation is easy and straightforward. Adbucks has got country, OS and carrier targeting.

Next step is placing the bids. I started a BR OI campaign and the number of impressions available broke my heart. Anyway, I created the campaign and inserted my banners.

Honestly, I’d never be so cruel as to advise you to start buying traffic here.

In fact, there’s no traffic, everything is low quality, and the platform doesn’t offer you a whole lotta options to work with.
