    Thumbs up Image Space Media - Monetize your images

    I've been digging for new ways to monetizing my sites, specially considering the fact that most of them have thousands of published images and get tons of traffic from Google Images.

    Recently the guys from Image Space Media contacted me asking to register with them. So I did.

    I've used one of my major sites (one of those that gets a lot of traffic from G images) - Car Tuning Central and implemented the javascript as requested.

    So far the results are not impressive but are pretty good.

    Here are my thoughts about them:

    Pros:

    - Less than 24 hours approval time (on a weekend)
    - Less than 1 minute to implement Javascript
    - Less than 3 hours to activate the ads
    - Very quick load (you can check my site for details)
    - Non-intrusive / discrete ads
    - Adsense compliant
    - Pretty cool CPC (depending on your traffic Geo source this might vary, but so far I have seen something in the 10 cents per click area)
    - Didn't make any difference in my other revenue sources for that site
    - Pretty cool reporting system - I particularly like the image reporting tool.
    - Allows Non-English Websites

    Cons:

    - Low CTR (I expected that), but that might happen when you have 5-10 images per page.
    - You cannot monetize adult sites (not a problem to me anyhow)
    - You can't monetize small thumbnails, only images that are larger than 200*100 (the vast majority though)

    Conclusion:

    A great revenue addition!

    August stats show a steady $0.085 CPC and a 0.21% CTR out of 1045 images.

    Even tough CTR is not impressive I really like the addition to my overall monthly revenue.

    I need to start playing with their keyword targeting tool.

    How does the actual choosing of the images work?
    What prevents it from putting ads over my header or logo, or other images that I wouldn't want monetized?

    They'll put ads on every image (except CSS ones) as long as they're larger than 200*100, BUT you can easily switch the ads off of any image you want; their image manager interface is rather cool.

    I see the ads only show when you hover over the image. Is there anyway to change this? I suppose this is the reason for the low CTR.

    Peanuts


    • For each referral that earns $5 within 180 days of sign-up, you'll receive $5.
    • When that referral earns $100 within 180 days of sign-up, you'll receive an additional $250.
    • If you can refer 25 publishers who earn more than $100 within the first 180 days of sign-up, you'll receive a $2,000 bonus!

    I suppose you can't change that for now, but I prefer it like this or else it'd turn too intrusive for my own taste.

    I signed up and was approved today. I don't really have any sites with many images at the moment but this gives me some ideas on what I could work on.
