Qadabra - very nice service to monetize your web traffic

7 replies
I own a couple small-medium sized websites (1,000-10,000 uniques daily each) and got banned from Google AdSense (who hasn't at this point, lol) so I was told to try Qadabra.

I was able to get started pretty quickly. The sign up process and code implementation wasn't bad at all. 5 minutes after I visited the website I was already showing ads on my own website.

I implemented 5 banners in total on my first website, Funny Demotivational Posters | Create Your Own Funny Demotivational Poster FREE. One of them was a lightbox that my AM helped me set up in a couple minutes. Having a personal account manager is definitely a nice touch.

Overall my CPM's are higher than I expected. They are not AMAZING like $3 CPM good but that's probably because I get a lot of traffic from third-world countries.

One of the things I don't like about Qadabra is they have somewhat limited offers to show that are for a very general audience. You'll get typically "spammy" offers, not really niche products. I've seen software downloads, mobile content offers, diet pills, gaming offers, and dating so far. But the CTR and CPM's are pretty good, right? Also, you get paid on revenue share and not CPC. This means if your traffic is junk you probably won't make too much. Only if they make a conversion, but the conversion process for the offers I see are usually pretty easy. I was skeptical with the rev-share model but surprisingly it works pretty well. It also means they'll never have an excuse to ban you.

I make enough with Qadabra among all my websites to make a near full-time living. I see my CPM's have been going up steadily the past couple months so i guess there's some optimization going on over there too. Qadabra pays with PayPal too so it's pretty easy to get paid, but they have other payment options as well I think.

I'd recommend giving them a try. It's really easy to set up and get started. It's not for every website, especially for super niche websites, but if you have lots of traffic and not happy with Google Adsense than give it a shot.

    Hi bizzie! It was very nice to read this post. Thank you for the review and compliments. We are very happy to know that our publishers are satisfied with Qadabra, especially when it comes to our simple interface and user support.
    We are also very happy that you have seen for yourself how effective a rev share model can be. It focuses on performance and has no limit to the profits it can generate if the traffic is good. We look forward to continue with our optimization and turning your "near full-time living" into just full-time
    As you already seem to know, you can count on your AM for any help you may need. One of our top priorities is to give our publishers the best service.
    Again, thank you for recommending us.
    Cheers and best of luck!

    Sounds like a good company. Have heard from them, but never gave it a try. Maybe now. Could you let us know your actual CPM by the way?

    Qadabra sucks. CPC is less then .01 and sometimes they don't even pays for clicks. Horrible company with horrible CPC.
