Content is free. When you buy through links on my site, I may earn affiliate commission. Learn More.

One of the most trending modes of advertising and promotion is Popads i.e Pop-up and Pop-under advertising. Connected to the CPI and CPA marketing, it leads to different goals that cost per acquisition and cost per lead.

The reason behind writing this list of the best pop ad networks/ platforms is to give you an idea of how much traffic you can drive to your product page with it.

Pop ads and traffic is best for you if:

  • You are not using AdSense to monetize your website traffic
  • You’re a merchant and want to boost your website traffic and promote it to real people
  • You just want more visitors to your website (no matter they convert and make any purchase or not. But this does not mean that the traffic is not going to convert at all.)

Pop advertising is also named pop ads and pop-under media buying. And it is likely to have the same roles as mobile advertising does have.

A flood of traffic and that too at cheap rates. Who does not want that? (I am not talking about the spam/fake traffic or Google Analytics spam.)

I have gathered and crafted this piece of content to introduce you to the top pop ad networks. You might be having questions like – “whether pop ads are good for my website?” or “Is it a waste of time and money to invest in pop ads?” or even “Is there any risk if I use pop ads and Adsense at the same time?”

PropellerAds work like a skyrocket if your user has a regular behavior of clicking anywhere on your website or blog. No matter where a user is clicking on your website, a new browser window (containing promotional content) will be opened but under the active window. And this is how Pop-Under ad networks work.

Just taking monetization into consideration, I have heard of some people who lost their AdSense account while using pop ads and AdSense at the same time. However, there are still opportunities.

You have Push Notifications, Popunder ads, In-Page Push, Interstitials and Direct Links. The good thing is that with PropellerAds MultiTag you don’t need to create an individual tag for each ad format. Just add MultiTag to your website and enjoy automatic platform optimization.

  1. Works awesome when it comes to targeting and optimizing your ads
  2. PropellerAds offer a massive variety of advertisers in every country and every niche, so no impressions are being wasted
  3. You can monetize 100% of your website traffic

Great. Kept all kidding aside. Pop ads are good for any website and it is not a waste of anything if you do it with a mindset and a strategy. Furthermore, Your Adsense Account is at risk if you’re using Adsense and pop ads at the same time.

10 ExoClick

exoclick network for adult pop advertising

I have seen most of the adult sites monetizing their traffic using ExoClick. I can easily define it like “exotic click”?

Most of the sites that use ExoClick are in the 18+ niche and that is totally reasonable because the advertisers are also promoting products in the 18+ category.

So, that is a great choice to monetize your viral 18+ site with ExoClick. The conversion rate and click through rate gonna be amazing. Trust me.  (the publishers are making millions. Advertisers are for profit).

11 RevenueHits


RevenueHits is a renowned affiliate network. I saw webmasters in my friend circle using RevenueHits to earn money through PPC, CPA and PPV ads. But these days I hardly see a professional blogger using this network for earning.

RevenueHits is for niche sites. You get huge traffic and in return you make HUGE. No tall talks. It is real.

12 PopMyAds

PopMyAds, as the name suggests, is yet another popular ad network for pop ads, CPA marketing, and banner advertising. As an advertiser, I seek enough opportunities for increased exposure and market share. You can drive millions of page views for your webpages at the least cost using PopMyAds.

Final Words

When you enter into CPA (affiliate marketing), but not in CPS (cost per sale), it compels your wonders that you can sell website traffic and earn money from it.

Million Dollar Tip: You can use this mode of advertising for your own landing pages. The only thing you would want to do is- learn how to open a pop-under window when someone clicks anywhere on your website. The next thing is opening your own landing page all the time (or randomize it).

Weird but this is the million-dollar business. But you must be knowing how to play it well.
