Bidvertiser provides complete control to its publishers and advertisers by using a bidding method. On Bidvertiser, publishers can sell their ad spaces directly to the advertisers. Usually, Bidvertiser provides an ad code that you have to place on your site where you want to show the ad then advertisers place bids for your ad space and the advertiser with the highest big gets the ad space to show his/her ad. In this way publishers get the highest rates for their ad spaces and advertisers get the best conversion rates. Bidvertiser is a CPC, PPC model based ad network, so, you get paid for clicks rather than for impressions. It offers good service and support for its publishers, you can contact them anytime via email or phone. This is the overview, so, lets have a deeper look of Bidvertiser to know its pros and cons:

How it Works?
Here is the working of BidVertiser which is again somewhat unique!
- Advertisers set Bids for their Ads to be displayed in websites or blogs of some specific category or niche.
- BidVertiser checks the Publisher’s site’s (website or blog) category and displays the highest bidders on his/her site.
- When visitors click ads, publishers earn money. They make extra revenue if a click turns into conversion.
- Publishers get paid at the end of the month!
Note: Publishers will see a constant improvement in their bidding over time, as both their visitors and BidVertiser’s advertisers will be exposed to the opportunity of bidding against each other on publisher’s ad space.

Adsense vs BidVertiser:
Every network has its ups and downs; it’s true for Adsnese and BidVertiser also. Let’s see comparison between BidVertiser and Adsense:
Pay Per Click and Earnings:
Adsense: Pay Per Click is the best, no question about it. PPC is good in most of the niches. You can expect more earnings from Adsense than BidVertiser.
BidVertiser: Pay Per Click is good but not the best. In some niches it pays really good PPC but some of the time it pays less.
Sign Up Process and Approval
Adsense: You must be at least 18 years to apply; if you are not, use your parent’s account. Applying is easy but approval is the hardest. Some of the times even professional sites are not accepted
BidVertiser: Sign Up process is just as easy as 1 2 3…No Minimum Age requirement. There is No Approval Process. Any website/blog/subdomain/warez site accepted, even newest blogs/sites are accepted
Fill Rate, Type of Ads and Quality:
Fill Rate = (Number of times ads was shown / Total number of page impressions) × 100
Adsnese: Fill rate is 100% in Adsense also. Ads are of best quality. It supports text and contextual ads related to content of site.
BidVertiser: Fill rate is approximately 100%. Quality of ads is not very good. However, it has many ad types which is one of the reason I like it.
Like other ad networks Bidvertiser also offers a good referral program which is for both advertiser and publisher.
- If you refer a publisher and when he/she first earns 10$ then your account will be credited with 10$. And, when the same publisher earns 50$ then your account will be credited with additional 40$.
- If you refer an advertiser and when he/she spends first 10$ then your account will be credited with 10$. And, when the same advertiser spends 50$ then your account will be credited with additional 20$.
Overall, this is a network that you should consider if you are unable to use AdSense on your site or if you either want to run extended ad formats such as Sliders Ads or Pop-Unders, which are no provided by AdSense and can generate high revenues. In addition, if you can generate mobile traffic to your website, BidVertiser certainly worth a shot because their mobile CPMs are very good across all geos.
