As a faucet owner, are you scared that Google kicks you out?

There are available solutions to substitute Google Adsense

For almost all the faucet owners out there, Google Adsense represents the main income source. Why? Because the amount of pay per click is just so much higher than anywhere else.
Unfortunately Google closes more an more accounts of Faucet Owners and often blocks accumulated sums. The reason for it is not really clear but the intention of google cannot be misunderstood. They just do not want to have google Ads on Faucets anymore.

Finding alternatives

There are other ad networks out there that can help faucet owners to replace google. It is however difficult to evaluate which networks are really trustworthy. There is the problem of the payout and also of the content that is put on your site. I have seen faucets that where blacklisted by Google Chrome because they had put certain ads on their website.

Here a list of ad networks that I use on my faucets:

Adhitz

Adhitz is a great service and it is not much used with faucets. The big advantage is that most of the ads are related to earning money online which should appeal to faucet users. Adhitz does not pay very much. Per click you earn starting from 0.01 $. Adhitz is a huge site and there are thousands of ads. So there is almost always something for your page. You can put up to 4 Zones for either image or text ads.
You get a payout to paypal once your account reaches 25 $ which can take some time.


Mellowads

Mellowads is the best CPM Network that I know. With this service alone I almost cover the entire payouts of my faucets! Before you can join mellowads however, your faucet has to be ranked among the first million sites on Alexa. So be sure that you meet this requirement before you apply.
You can place up to 5 Ad zones on your Website. The more traffic you get, the more you get paid. The level of payout however depends mainly on the current network pool which you can find on your dashboard. You get a payment every day and you can payout in Bitcoins to your personal wallet whenever you want.


Blockadz

Blockadz is a CPM service. It is a great way to start monetizing your site. The site requirements are almost not existent, meaning that they take almost every site. This is good for you because you can start earning immediately with your faucet. You can put up to 5 Adzones on your page and for 1000 views you get something around 0.03 $ which of course is not much.
You get an automatic payout in bitcoins once your reach 0.01 BTC but man this takes time to reach...


Anonymous Ads

This website allows you to set up an adspace within seconds. There is no authorization process and you can place these ads on any page you wish. This is the perfect network for beginners who do not have a very well known faucet yet.
Anonymous ads is a network that pays you per unique view. This has to be understood well however. You will not be paid according to the unique views on your page but according to the unique views in respect to the whole network! Depending on your traffic sources, the result could be quite disappointing. However, it is very easy to set up and the earnings are paid out when 0.0001 BTC are reached which is quite low.
Since the system is completely anonymous, there is no login or account for publishers. This means that when creating your adspace, you will get an url that you will have to remember. Otherwise you will not be able to change your ad in the future.

Other ad networks that I can recommend

Bitmedia: CPC
Adalso: CPC


Finding a good mix

For my faucets, I try to use several of these ad networks at once and compare their performances. This allows me to be less dependent on Google Adsense. Well even like that it would be a big blow for me, if google stopped adsense on my sites. That is why I plan to stop using adsense all together before they actually close my account...

How to reach a payout with Ethereum Faucets?

If you got frustrated while trying to reach a payout with Ethereum Faucets, you will be happy to learn that this is about to change!




Ethereum is clearly the coin in fashion and a lot of cryptocurrency users just want to get some. For the people who had experience with Bitcoins and all the other cryptocurrencies, it was perceived that the easiest way to get the first ether was to use the few existing faucets.

Unfortunately the people claiming for these Ethereum Faucets had to realize that it would cost them a lot of time to get their first payout. The withdrawal limit for most of these faucets, compared with the amount that can be earned by claim just lets you get desperate. It is almost impossible to reach the withdrawal limit without having hundreds of referrals.

For the most popular currencies like bitcoins, litecoins, dash, dogecoin, peercoin or primecoin, faucets can be run with a script provided by faucetbox. The big advantage for the user is that all the earnings claimed on such faucetbox faucets are combined and a payout can quite easily be achieved. This was not the case with the ethereum faucets and therefore a payout was almost impossible.

Several faucets paying into a same balance

So far faucetbox does not support Ether but two new players appeared who had the good sense to allow several faucets to payout through a same balance. So the user can direct the earnings of several faucets to a same place and decreases the time till the payout dramatically.

Box Ether

The box Ether group unites 5 faucets with a claiming interval between 5 and 60 minutes. Thanks to the relatively low withdrawal threshold of 0.002 Ether, a payout should be possible for almost everyone.

EthFaucet

The EthFaucet group is a brand new player who unites several faucets that are run by different people. Similarly to faucetbox, EthFaucet provides a free faucet script and a common balance. A complete list of the EthFaucet group can be found here.

Thanks to these two players, claiming from ethereum is about to change and most importantly about to pay!
