Many add networks say they are paying developers amounts like $10 cpm. Is this true or false advertising? what are the real stats? who is paying the best rates?
Please offer your latest stats so a true comparison can be done:

I got really good cpm’s for the first month of leadbolt notification ads upwards of $11 . Now its dropping like a rock and i don’t see an end to the free fall. less than 1 cent per click is pretty ridiculous.
BTW speaking of start app exit ads i have a question. I get only impressions and never see a number besides zero in downloads. I have tested it personally and downloaded a game from the ad to see if it even worked. well it never showed in the start app console and after a month of tons of traffic i have yet to see a single download show up. I just don’t get it.
ah so the exit ad isn’t a paid for app download. That’s a bit sneaky because it looks like it would be. Especially since all the ads that i have seen on it are all games mostly “candy crush”. Hmmm not sure that i want to use the exit ad then because i could get real app downloads from an ad to pay better than impressions with a click here or there for 2 or 3 cents.
Hubris - The payment on this ad unit is based on revenue share, which is displayed via impressions of the ads and eCPM. Since we work with many advertisers, each paying us with a different model (impressions, clicks or app installs), we aggregate the number to a single unit, the eCPM. It makes things far easier to review from your end, as well as compare with different networks.
The “download” column, like A1ka1inE said, is for our out-of-app ad units, which you get paid for based on the downloads your app generates with that SDK.
Hope that clears things up a bit.
krosser - The absolute number of impressions is not a factor in determining the eCPM you are seeing, only the total revenue you are making. It depends on which countries you traffic is coming from, which campaigns are currently live and running and what the CTR and conversion rate you are generating.
A developer can get 100 impressions per day, earn $1 and see a $10 eCPM, so his eCPM is higher than yours, but you are making x100 more than him.
Feel free to shoot over more questions, i’ll be happy to assist.
Thank you. I have checked out @WNASH and that helps. I didn’t however bother to look at your on site stats. Unfortunately some networks are putting false stats on their site eg $10 CPM. Because of this I ( and many others) have learnt to take no notice of these figures as they have proved to be false.
The only stats worth looking at are real stats achieved and reported by developers, hence this thread.
May the best and most honest add network win!
@WNASH reported after 2 weeks: $0.011 eInstall for TapContext & $4-$5 ECPM of MobiCore.
TapContext have recently changed their revenue reporting format. Instead of giving eInstall value [earning per download], they now show CPM value. I have been using TapContext for almost a month and currently my month-to-date CPM is $2.76.
Also, here is the stats as reported on the dashboard :

I have crossed their minimum threshold for payout which is $250 & let’s see how the payment will me made.
