I have been using Smowtion for the last 6 months. I already got 2 payments from them, and waiting for my third payment. Smowtion is paying through PayPal at the eight of the following month after reaching the threshold amounting to $ 100, I can’t say that the earning potential in Smowtion is better than AdSense. AdSense still rocks when properly implemented. We as bloggers and content providers needs to find ways on how to make more money online.
Since this blog has been banned by Google AdSense for an Unknown reason. I have tried different methods on how to earn more from this blog. Which only proved that there is blogging life after AdSense.
As of this writing Smowtion alone gives an amount which is sufficient for paying my VPN account for all my blogs in Dreamhost.
It is great that smowtion is communicating with publishers, publishers will not be able to be banned for an unknown reason , they constantly send warning message if they found out that there is an irregularity happening at the blogs where the codes are placed. They do reply on bloggers query regarding the warning, which will give publishers a chance to rectify any problem that the blog might be encountering.
Smowtion also provide pop under ads that is not intrusive. Users will see the ads when leaving the page which does not post any obstruction with your readers. But still it is up to the publisher to use this option. Some says that it is not good for the blog.
On my observation ads sizes of 336×280 performs well among others and followed by 160×600 ads.
The threshold for payment is $100 and payments is being sent through Paypal. A publisher will get 60% share of the payment if they directly enroll at Smowtion site but will get 80% when publishers applied through my referral codes. ( Join Smowtion Here ) , Just for information I will earn 10% from what my referrals will earn for 6 months. , so work hard ok.
The main differences of Smowtion compared to AdSense is it’s preferred ads location with in the blogs, Smowtion don’t want to see their ads floating in the contents, but instead it should be located to a location where it should not be misunderstood as part of the post. The ads should be visible as an ads and not as a content.
Income are generated after conversion of clicks as shown in their Dashboard. So I think Smowtion will be best for niche blogs.
