CODEC Sponsored Content


Premium Monetizing System

CODEC provides quality bloggers and publishers with an additional revenue stream, as well as an increase in audience engagement. Once your website is approved, you’ll enjoy top monetizing ($1.5-$5 CPM), monthly payouts to your PayPal account and premium support. Monetization feature currently available only for English language sites.

Only Quality Content

We 100% manually moderate CODEC content, which means no border line or offensive content will appear on our branded content widget (which is often the case with native ads providers). Our editorial standards uphold universal values as well as FTC guidelines. You can finally monetize your content without sacrificing the quality of your online publication and your users’ experience. Websites are subject to approval for content guidance compliance.

Your Readers Stay on Your Site

Most monetization systems pay when your reader clicks on their headline, link or banner and leaves your site. You thus lose the hard earned traffic to your site. The greatest thing about CODEC is that users don’t need to leave your site for you to earn. We pay CPM, which means when user sees the CODEC content, you earn money. And when user engages with this content, he still doesn’t leave your site. Users stay on your site and yet you earn premium.

Easy and Convenient

The widget will be up and running immediately after you install the plugin and set it up. It usually takes just 3-5 minutes to have it up and running. You choose the location and the look of your widget. The rule of thumb is the bigger the widget you pick, the more revenue you’ll see.

How fast will my sponsored content appear?

Sample content will appear immediately, paid content will display once your website is verified. It varies, usually in 24 hours or less.

How will I know that my website is verified?

We’ll email you once it’s verified.

What minimum traffic is required?

1,000+ pageviews a month is fine.

How much earnings can I expect?

CODEC payments are usually higher than any banner network, recommendation (aka native) ads, etc. The more quality readers will see CODEC content, the more earnings a publisher gets.

Nice concept, but it doesn't deliver 100% fill rate as promised on their website, it mostly delivers only a loading icon without any ad units. I suppose this is to be expected with fewer than 100 installs. Also no customization options, reporting dashboard, etc.

The payment is consistent and higher than google ads. The content is high quality and often enriching in its own right. There is no better service out there.
