By now, you should have gotten your answer to the ultimate question of which advertising service pays more. Based on numerous Mediavine vs AdSense comparisons posted online, publishers who have tried both solutions almost always agree that they made more money with Mediavine. In my own personal experience, Mediavine tends to pay about 5x more per view than AdSense.
Even without looking at reviews, the evidence suggests that you have a higher income earning opportunity using Mediavine. There are multiple reasons for this. For one, AdSense is more concerned with serving as many ads from the Google network onto a publisher’s website. This often means lower quality ads with low rpm performance are likely to get through.
On the other hand, Mediavine works with strategic partners to ensure only the best-fitting and highest quality ads are placed on a website, almost guaranteeing a higher overall rpm for each asset.
Still, Mediavine is not the easiest advertising solution to get set up with. For that reason, AdSense continues to be a first choice for most newbie bloggers and small startups that are in the process of growing daily traffic. But once you have reached the minimum threshold of 50,000 sessions monthly (in addition to having valuable content published on your website), it might be a good move to begin the process of making the switch to Mediavine.
