Casale Media CPM Ads

I submitted an application to be a Casale Media publisher on June 21, 2010. On June 22, I got a letter saying that my website was not accepted as Casale Media's publisher. The reason could be that the majority of traffics are not coming from English based audience, USA and Canada. Actually, Casale Media requires only 25,000 unique visitor traffics a month of which this website has more than enough. The problem is with the origin of the traffics.

About Casale Media

ValueClick Media CPM Ads

How to make money online with ValueClick Media CPM Ads and how to get accepted and approved or rejected.

I submitted an application to be a ValueClick Media publisher few weeks ago. Just curious if this blog got approved. For you information, ValueClick Media (formerly, FastClick Media) is a CPM (Click Per-One Thousand Impression) based ads solution services. If you are a publisher of a CPM ads, you'll get paid for every thousand impression/views.

Back to my application, a few days later on June 15, I got a response from them thus:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for applying to join the ValueClick Media Ad Network. We have reviewed and appreciate the time and effort you have invested to create a quality environment for your visitors. However, we are unable to approve your site as a publisher on our network at this time. We very much appreciate your interest in our company and wish you best of luck in your endeavors.


ValueClick Media

So, ValueClick Media did not approve this blog to be its publisher. There's no clear reason or explanation as to why it was rejected. My quess is that, it's something to do with the most traffics this blog come from. Because ValueClick Media does not require a lot traffics. It's said, 100 visitor a day is enough to be approved as its publisher. Certainly, this blog has a lot more than just a hundred visitor per day.

So, another possibility is that ValueClick wants majority of traffic come from North America. Most CPM ads services want traffics which exclusively or at least mostly come from North America i.e. USA and Canada. If it's right, then this blog is not qualified for that. There are some CPM ads services which require a certain number of traffics to be accepted as their publisher, TribalFusion is one of those companies who require a very high traffic.

About ValueClick
ValueClick is a Westlake Village, is A CPM CA-based online advertising company, which provides online advertising campaigns and programs for advertisers and advertising agency customers in the United States and internationally. It operates in four segments: Media, Affiliate Marketing, Comparison Shopping, and Technology.

So, there's no clear reason why I was rejected. But according to a thread in a digitalpoints forum, ValueClick does not accept a website which have the following criteria:

1. Produce, provide or link to: adult content, sexual content, profane content, illegal drugs or related content, hate speech or hate graphics content.
2. Engage in, promote or facilitate illegal or legally questionable activities such as pirating, hacking, spamming and infecting
3. Are hosted by a free service, are personal home pages, provide free URL redirection, or do not own the domain they are under
4. Are under construction
5. Sponsor "incentivized clicks," or “pay-to-surf" programs, or use resident desktop objects such as bars and window frames
6. Use timed banner rotation or other "auto-loading" methods
7. Consist mostly of forums (chat, message boards, etc.)
8. Have more than two 468x60 banners per page, or an excessive amount of advertising in general
9. Distribute or promote spyware
10. Contain non-English web pages
11. Generate less than 3,000 page views per month

I am not sure which point this blog fits the criteria so as to make the ValueClick admin rejected my application.
