Poptm Review : Scam or Legit, CPM rates, Payment proof

Posted by Samba Siva
Popunders are the best alternatives to Adsense. There are many bloggers who use popunders, even though they got an Adsense approval. Why because, Popunders pay very higher and some of them like Popads and Popcash offers a gauranteed minimum rates like $1 for their friendly publishers ( Just joking all publishers are friendly to them). So today we are here with a new popunder ad network called Poptm. This Poptm review only is for publishers. If you are an advertiser, Visit another blog ( Hey i am too straight forward ) .

What is Poptm ?


Poptm is an Indian based ad network. They are completely unique and different in everything. Their unique design attracts all publishers and advertisers to join them. But these are not the best things about Poptm. They are very good at blocking the ad blockers.
Can't get it ?

Poptm Review

Scam or Legit

Hey guys, a small confusion here. Don't get me wrong. This is not a scam popunder ad network. But some people are making some rumors. But i don't think so. No one likes to create rumors. But according to me, this is a paying ad network. And they have already paid many dollars for their publishers. So no need to worry about payments. They will pay you. This is a main part of Poptm Review, because many publishers want to check out that they are not being fooled by the network they are signing up for.

Sign up and Approval

Getting Adsense approval for Google Adsense is very hard. But getting approval for Poptm is very easy. All you need to do is visiting their website and sign up using the registration form. After that you are able to login in to your account. Then add a website and to get approval, you need to add a peice of code ( Meta tag ) in the Head section of your template and PopTm review your blog and approve it. So Poptm is very good CPM ad network for small publishers.

Ad formats

This is a pop ad network. All it can provide are CPM ads which are popunders. Here are some ad formats provided by Poptm

Normal PopUnders : These are normal pop unders. They open in a new window and even though the visitor close it, it will be counted as an impression.

Ad blocking ads : These are also Popunders. But they are special. Generally many ad networks fail to bypass the Ad blockers. But Poptm ads will bypass ad blockers and you will get revenue even the visitor using an Ad blocker plugin. This makes this PopTm review even more effective, because it is their speciality

Rates

This is not an CPC ad network, so don't expect anything for clicks. There are no clicks at all. All are impressions. But the CPM rates of Poptm are very good. They pay an average cpm of $0.5 - $5 sometimes. Think once , $6 for 1000 visitors. If you get 5000 visits per month, you can make $30 per month. The rates are very good and outstanding for small publishers and new blog owners.

Payments

The minimum payout of Poptm is $10 and it is very easy to draw your first payment to your paypal account. If you don't have a paypal account, They still offer Bank Wire transfers too. Receive your payments through bank transfer.

So, it isn't a scam. Ad-Maven is completely a legit ad network and you can signup with them without any worries. Even though there are some reviews which are opposed to my statement, I would consider Ad-Maven a completely genuine network. But, I'm not responsible, If you scammed by them after reading this interview. Is Ad-Maven a scam, No, Not at all.

After adding Ad tags, you should wait at least 2 days for optimization. After that, related ads will start appearing on your blog resulting in higher Ecpm rates.

The pop's pay higher and the banner's pay lower. Low doesn't mean really low. Lower refers to comparison. Banners pay less when compared to Pop's.

The rates might start from as low as $0.1 - $4 easily. I think, this is the part which makes you more happy in this Ad-Maven review.
