When do I start earning from the ads on my blog?

Bloggers earn when they serve paid ads from our advertisers. There are generally 2 types of paid ads: CPC (Cost Per Click) and mCPM (Metered Cost Per Impression).
CPC ads show on all blogs on the Nuffnang network which have "Show Global CPC Ads" selected under their Blog Preferences in the Blog Manager, and are not currently serving any mCPM ads. Payment is based on the number of unique clicks on the CPC ad.
mCPM (Metered Cost Per Impression) campaigns are when your blog is selected for a banner campaign. See below for how you can get selected for these campaigns. No clicks are required to earn from mCPM ads, however having high CTR (click through ratio) may grant you bonus earnings.

If you wish to earn from CPC ads while waiting for mCPM ads to be assigned to your blog, make sure you have "Show Global CPC Ads" chosen for your Ads Preference in the Blog Manager!

Once you've accumulated more than RM 50, you can cash out your earnings, and we will send you a cheque.
For more information about CPC and mCPM ads, please read the full FAQ here, or write in to our helpdesk here.

How do I get selected for ad campaigns?
There are a few factors considered when deciding ad assignments:
  1. Demographics of blog readers
    Keep your blog surveys up-to-date, as they determine how your blog is targeted for advertisers.
  2. Desirability of ad placement
    Advertisers spend a lot of money on banners, and prefer to have their ads in prominent locations.
    • A Skyscraper ad unit is supposed to be the first element of the sidebar and not anywhere else.
    • The Leaderboard should be the first element a visitor sees, and
    • The Large Rectangle should come right after your first blog post.
    Should your blog's ad units not be located at these optimal placements, it could severely affect the number of advertisers who choose your blog.
  3. Availability of ad units
    Advertisers split their budget evenly across our three ad units. If your blog serves all three, you'll increase your chances of getting campaigns.
  4. Membership exclusivity
    Advertisers tend to advertise more on Glitterati Nuffnangers' blogs as part of our reward program for our most loyal bloggers. Ordinary members still receive campaigns but in lower numbers.
  5. Period of membership
    It takes about 30 days for our system to monitor your traffic for consistency before we can propose your blog for any campaigns. Please be patient, you'll soon receive ad campaigns if all your ad spaces are optimized.

I've submitted a cashout request! When will my cheque arrive?

As stated in our payment policy, Nuffnang processes cashout requests for Glitterati members 30 days after every end of the month from their cashout request date (60 days for Ordinary members). Cheques will be compiled and sent to the bank for processing before delivery to your registered address. The processing takes an additional two weeks. If you were a Glitterati member and cashed out any day in August, your cheque would be processed at the end of September and should reach you by the second week of October.
If you do not receive your cheque within the time frame mentioned, kindly write in to our helpdesk.
We know you probably have a few more questions in mind; why don't you head over to our FAQ section for more information?

  1. Nuffnang started to post ads on my blogs. Does it means that I participated in the CPC campaign? when will Nuffnang start to count my earnings on my Nuffnang profile?
