Media.net and Infolinks

Have you been trying to get adsense 
approval for some time? Don’t you worry, infolinks and media.net to the rescue.

When it comes to choosing which advertising platforms work well with Google AdSense, these two come to mind. There are a lot easier to get unlike Google AdSense.

I’ve tried these two and I must say both pay arguably well, but doesn’t compare to google adsense cpc (cost per click) rate which is higher than any other advertising platforms out there.

Media.net was founded by Divyank Turakhia, an Indian businessman in 2012. It is a popular advertising company that allows both the publishers and advertisers to benefit from their developed innovative products.

Infolinks on the other hand, though founded in 2007 is one of the industry leaders when it comes to in-text and intent-based advertising.

Pin it.

Media.net and Infolinks

When we compare media.net and Infolinks, some similarities come to play.


  • Both supports and provide display advertising.
  • Both works well with AdSense.
  • Both are reliable.
  • Easy to contact supports.
  • Both have quick and easy to implement Ad units.
  • Both have mobile Ad units available.

Media.net vs Infolinks: Differences


Media.net has a more detailed dashboard showing graphical representation, number of impression,estimated revenue per day and so on which is updated every 24 hours, while Infolinks is a little less detailed showing just the page views, ad views and money earned which is updated every few minutes.


Media.net is owned by yahoo/bing and Infolinks is also privately owned company with it's headquarters in California.


The review time for media.net is usually after two business days.

While, there is no review time for Infolinks.

How to get 10,000 views for YouTube videos

10000 YouTube views

If you love making videos, you will also love more people coming to view and like it. Like everything else, it takes time,effort,dedication and consistency to get a large number of viewers.

Many may say that making money on YouTube is hard and it isn't worth your time, but the honest truth is that nothing comes easy and hard work and patience is definitely the order of the day.

If you love making interesting videos, then you need to keep doing what you love and make the most out of it. I had an educational YouTube channel that i needed to monetize but the adsense team said i had to have 10,000 views according to their new policies for it to be reviewed.

Considering a new YouTube channel, it is almost impossible to get that amount of views without waiting at least a year.

Here is a quick trick to fasten things up.

Optimize your channel.

  • Verify the channel.
  • Include a channel description with relevant keywords.
  • Add a channel art.
  • Add many tags before you upload videos.

How to get 10,000 views on YouTube.

1) Quality Videos

Having unique and quality videos on your channel can increase views and subscribers significantly. Ensure your videos have all of the following;

  • A catchy title.
  • A detailed video description.
  • A good intro and outro
  • Good audio quality.
  • A call-to-action

2) Embed to Blog posts.

This is a great way to increase your views. This would only be relevant if you make videos on the topics you write about. Some users would prefer watching the videos instead of reading your written articles. 

Just get the video you would like to share and click on embed to get the source code for that video.

Embed YouTube video

3) Free Views.

If you are not in the mood to wait for your views to increase naturally, you can try obtaining free or paid views.

QQTube is a platform that can help with that. You can get 1000 quality views for free and pay for other services they provide.

Gone are the days when getting Google AdSense was peace of cake. Google AdSense now has grown bigger with millions of advertisers and since become more strict and picky when it comes to approving more advertisers.

Getting an AdSense account approved are some people's number one issue today. AdSense is the highest CPC network. It's still not the best way to make money online. Though, some may say it is the easiest. You can definitely make a lot of money from AdSense.

This trick using YouTube will get you a hosted Google AdSense account, which can be displayed on Google's products only but not on custom domains.

After which you can then upgrade to a hosted AdSense account and start placing ads on your custom domain.

As at April 18th 2017, Google introduced a new review process which requires all youtube advertiser to get a minimum of 10,000 lifetime views before the AdSense team can review your account for monetisation. More details from Google.

YouTube AdSense approval

If you get Approved?

If you are lucky to get approved you will start seeing ads on your YouTube channel and can associate other YouTube channels to Adsense
lso, you might also want those ads to show on your custom domain.

If you’re using custom domain, I must tell you that Google has changed its policy for approving accounts via host partnered sites (custom domain), which means you are required to fill out a form and get approval from Adsense team manually before the ads begin to show on your website. 

To fill this form:

  • On your AdSense dashboard > click My ads
  • Select Other products.
  • Submit your website for a fresh review process.

If you don't get approved?

If you didn't get accepted into the AdSense partner program. Don't give up just yet keep working on uploading unique videos that adheres to YouTube partner program policies and community guidelines. Then reapply in 30 days.

Try It.

How to highlight html-Css-Javascript codes in blogger posts.


Add Codes to blogger post

Are you about to write a tutorial and wondering how to add codes in blogger? Are you looking for ways to beautify your blogger blog posts with organized code formats?

If yes? Then you're in the right place.

You might want to start writing tutorials and all you want is to present the codes in a nice way, different from the normal texts.

I'm going to give you a hassel free solution to this problem. 

But first, here are some articles you might be interested in reading.

Syntax highlighter as you know is a fully functional self-contained code syntax highlighter developed in JavaScript. Which helps you prettify your source codes by representing them in different colours and font and displays it in an organized numbered list style. 

Most Blogspot users often share HTML, CSS or JavaScript codes with their audience in line with ordinary texts and codes but with this new shortcode you can better display scripts on your sites in a presentable way. 

This hack neatly displays web technologies such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Php, Python, Sql, xml etc. The codes are displayed line by line number wise or other wise. 

Online Converter Method.

This easy to use method doesn't even require you to edit your blogger theme's HTML at all. All you need to do is convert the source code you want add to your blogger blog post using a simple online converter to a styled code with written CSS codes integrated into the output code.

A step by step process;

Step #1: Copy the code you want to add to blog post. 

Step #2: Go to  Markup highlighter, paste the code you just copied to convert this code to one that can easily embedded into posts directly. You can change the style if you choose.

Step #3: Then Copy the converted code format.

Step #4: Sign into your blogger account > select posts.

Step #5: Select the post you want to add the highlighted codes, switch to HTML mode and paste the codes then switch back to compose mode to see the result.

How to change your blogger theme 2018


Change blogger themes

As someone new to blogging on blogger, you might settle for a limited default blogger's template, which in my opinion lacks a uniqueness and attractive look it requires for website to stand out.

A website template should be beneficial and optimized.

Some Features of good templates.
  • Simple Design
  • Responsive
  • SEO friendly
  • Fast Loading Time
  • Good user experience

How to change your blogger template.

First, you must download a good theme having some or all the features mentioned above. The template file you then upload to your blogger must be in XML format, be sure to keep that in mind. To get free blogger templates, visit Gooyaabi Templates or simply google "free blogger templates" for more options.

Once you have made your choice, proceed with the following steps;

1) Login to your blogger account, to gain entry to your dashboard.

2) Select Theme from the menu.


3) Then Click on Backup/Restore on the top right corner of the themes page.
