    Hello, I'm new. Registered just to say why I think MadAdsMedia is a scam.

    1. No one has gotten paid.
    Money talks. Until a lot of trusted members has confirmed that they have actually received money from these guys they are to be considered dangerous. There's a guy here that claims he is from M.A.M (user name pat.madadsmedia) but he has not said anything to those that asks the same question over and over again: "Has anyone gotten paid?" You'd think he would have said something like "no one here has had an account for X number of days yet, they can't get paid yet, here's how often we pay etc etc". He just ignores those questions.

    2. No answers on the site about common questions.
    Nothing like "we accept PayPal" or stuff like that. Nothing like "we accept pornographic content" or stuff like that. No info about anything really.

    3. Those partner icons on the front page.
    "Google Adsense" and "Microsoft Advertising" and the like, they all appear to be clickable. But nothing happens when you click on the icons. You aren't taken to any partner sites or anything like that, all links leads to "#", which is an anchor-link to nowhere.

    4. Ads served this year.
    Currently 30375988140. Over 30 billion ads shown? This year. After six months. Increasing with over 3000 impressions per second. These guys are new, are we supposed to believe they have 30 thousand customers that have had over 1 million ad impressions this year? Sure 1 mil ad impressions might be possible in six months (even with all the ad-blocking that goes on today) but 30 THOUSAND customers who has served that much? or 300 thousand who has managed 100000 ad-servings in six months. And again, it's probably not six months since these guys are supposed to be new (or maybe they have existed since 2011 like their bottom-of-the-page copyright notice says, I dunno). Even if it is not six months (since new year's) and the stats are of a 12 month cycle (since june 2011) it still seems a bit fishy.

    5. Google Adsense.
    As some have pointed out, does Google allow their ads to be served in this manner? If MadAdsMedia had been around for over year, wouldn't Google have catched on by now?

    6. That Rate Calculator.
    Set 100k ad impressions, 100% USA and 0% rest of the world and I get $3,030. Set 100k ad impressions, 50% USA and 50% rest of the world and I get $2,306. Only $700 less even though there's a huge difference in USA traffic (which normally brings a lot more money than "rest of the world" statistics, ESPECIALLY in this case when all three of the UK, Canada and Australia is excluded from the "rest of the world"). A bit strange too is that if I drop 100k to 50k impressions the calculated does not drop to 50% but to ~53%. OK, maybe that can depend on something logical but it's a bit more difficult to explain why the calculator allows you to enter a total percentage less to or more than 100%. That doesn't seem very professional.

    If I'm wrong surely pat.madadsmedia will address all my points in depth. A big concern is that noone has stepped in and said that they have gotten paid, these guys must have have a lot of publishes whom some of them surely browse digitalpoint. Especially if they have been around since 2011.

    My biggest concern is however the lack of info on their site. They don't even say what kind of sites they accept. When their layout looks so good and "professional", why wouldn't they even have a FAQ page? And why is a lot of their text in image format, it just makes it harder to quote them. Strange.

    Anyone can make a pretty website, the key part is actually paying publishers. It smells a bit like they want to get some publishers and earn as much impressions as they can for their own ad accounts before companies like Google discover what they are up to, and then they run off with all the profits in the last second. Correct me if I'm wrong, Mr representative.

    I appreciate you taking the time to look out for your fellow publishers (as I have been a publisher myself in the past), but I can assure you we're a 100% legitimate company and I hope my responses will help to change your opinion.

    1. Many websites have been paid but many websites in this thread have only began running us. Payment terms are net-45 so websites that started us in May (which many sites here have), you will receive your first payment July 15th.

    2. There are answers on the site. Payment options are displayed to our existing publishers in their "Payment Profile" area. We pay via Paypal, Check, and ACH. On our about us page we mention "...We're looking for well designed sites with family friendly content...". We try not to list exactly what we're looking for as every site is different and we don't want to discourage sites from applying. I'll admit, our site could be a bit more informative, but our main focus has been on building advertiser demand for our existing publishers.

    3. These are not meant to link anywhere. This is simply a CSS hover effect done by our front-end designer.

    4. We've been in business since 2010 working with sites on an "invite only". It wasn't until 2011 that we opened our doors to the public. Our 2 largest publisher combined serve in excess of 150 million impressions daily.

    5. Google Adsense is a small part of our optimization technology and was seen mostly on sites with high international traffic (as this is notoriously the hardest traffic to monetize). Most sites will rarely see Adsense as we have in place many higher paying demand partners. Many new sites that have applied will never see Adsense.

    6. I cannot speak fully for this as it is not my department. I do know, however, that the numbers were originally based on Q4 2011 numbers (the highest CPM quarter). Not all publishers are guaranteed to see these rates (as every site and user base is different), but these are meant to give you a rough estimate as what you can make with MadAds; provided all of our demand partners approve your website.


    All in all, we're trusted by some very, very large names on the web. If I can get approval from these sites to post their name here, I will gladly do so. If your concern is about being paid, feel free to wait for the current publishers in this thread to be paid and provide proof. Our FAQ page can be seen here: madadsmedia.com/faq/ and the front-end designer is utilizing html5's "Cufon" (which converts text to image for aesthetic reasons). We're a new name now, but we're a name you're going to be hearing about for years to come.

    If anyone else has any questions, comments, or concerns, we'd love to hear them.

    Thanks for addressing these things Pat. I hope you are right :)

    While there hasn't been anyone here come forward and say they have been paid, there also isn't anyone that has said they are over the net-45 time and haven't been paid.

    So I guess only time will tell.

    I just want you to know though, if you are lying and this is a scam, my kids will likely starve to death.

    Thank you for taking the time to address my points, your ad service now seems more trustworthy. Though of course no proof has still been presented.

    You really ought to give more info on your site about exactly what sites that are accepted and what payment options there are. It's not nice to trick people into going trhough the trouble of signing up and then discover that they can't be paid a certain way that they need, or that they can't host porn and what not.

    Plenty of publishers have been paid.
    Our CPM rates vary greatly, depending on multiple variables such as quality of traffic, number of impressions served, and placement of ads. It'd be very imprudent of me to give any kind of estimate without knowing about the site in question. There is a revenue calculator available on our website, but this is merely a guideline designed to give you a rough estimate. Feel free to email me at pat.darms@madadsmedia; I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.

    Those numbers are about what I'm earning daily and to be honest I'm quite happy with that.


    Not sure what your expecting to earn, but your traffic is pretty small and a few cents a day is about as good as your going to get.

    spyece: To be perfectly blunt, your revenue reflects your impressions. An average of 700 impressions a day isn't going to yield much revenue, especially when mille refers to one thousand impressions. When we're talking about less than one thousand impressions daily, quality of traffic (whether it is mostly U.S. or not) becomes somewhat irrelevent. Although we will work with almost any site, our average publisher serves 100,000 impressions a day.

    I'm really happy with madadsmedia. Their stats do take over 48 hours to update but once they get updated, they seem to count all impressions and I get a better rate from them than any other cpm network.

    They are net60 though which is kind of a pain. My first payment is due July 15 so I can't say for sure that they pay or not. I currently rotate their ads out with a couple other networks just to be safe but as soon as I get paid, I am going to use them for my prime ad position 100%

    Their site is nice and they seem professional. They have been pretty quick to address any concerns people have expressed. I'll let you know after July 15...
