Mobile Ad Networks Comparison:


Mobile Ad Networks are truly taking off.  The majority of predictions peg the global market at $15 billion by 2015. Mobithinking has created a wonderful  guide to mobile ad networks  which analyses and researches the  Mobile AdNetworks

There are three kinds of networks 1) Blind Networks 2) Premium Blind Networks 3) premium Netrworks

Blind Networks :These ad networks serve a high volume of advertising to an extensive base of mostly independent mobile publishers (mobile sites and applications), supplemented by premium publishers’ unfilled inventoryThe CPC varies with supply and demand, determined through a self-service auction system. The cheapest option is run of network (RON) adverts (i.e. no targeting), which in some countries may start at US$0.01 CPC. Some blind networks also offer brand advertising, on a cost per thousand impressions (CPM) model – i.e. you pay X for every 1,000 devices that visit/download the page
