Ad views (reported) 48,862 44,950 -8.01%
Clicks 55 (unknown)

Revenue (hidden) (hidden) -92.69%

Result: The Media.net network gives about 92.7 percent less than with what Google AdSense gives.

Note: After the ads had run for a day media.net contacted us and sent new ad codes, since the first ones did not work. It is bad that their site generates invalid ad codes, but it is good that they found out quite quickly and fixed it.
Media.net has confirmed that their ads does not perform as they should on our test site.

10. February 2013 · Comments Off on Zanox vs. AdSense – Ad Revenue · Categories: Comparing Test

Network pagewww.zanox.com
Tested program: Zanox Ad Server
Tested on site: Kryssakuten.se
Tested period: Jan 2012 – Feb 2013 (13 months)

Result: During the first eleven months the revenue was quite good. 5% – 40% per month of what Google AdSense generated. But since December 2012 the revenue went down to exactly 0%!

NotesWe contacted Zanox about the total drop in revenue in their contact form. But we didn’t get an answer!

Update: When we asked them on their Facebook page if they read the questions from their contact form, the question just got deleted after about a day.

Update 2: Our last try was to e-mail them about this. The e-mail address was well hidden on their site, but we got an answer after about half a day. It turns out that the Zanox Ad Server has been cancelled and is replaced by Zanox Ad Delivery. Looks like we have to come back with a new test of that. But it is really bad that they cancel a service without informing about it!
