Understanding the RPM influences
To understand how we calculate your RPM and what factors influence it, you’ll have to know where the money comes from, what the performance based revenue model is and which metrics we use to estimate your RPM.
The origin of the of the money are advertisers. Their job is to generate traffic for the advertisements of their clients. Said advertisements are the ad-tasks your audience has to fulfill (Articles, Add-Ons, Downloads, e.g.).
The unique thing with Linkvertise is that you decide which ad-task your audience has to do. This is a feature no other Link-Shortener offers.
We also only show quality advertisements and no NSFW or inappropriate content. These kind of ads are ratet higher in income which has a positive influence on your revenue.
As mentioned before the Performance-Based-Revenue-Model is not just unique but, also has various advantages. Because of this model we can offer higher payout rates then our competitors who have a fixed payout rate.
This model contains of five very important metrics:
A click is the actual click out from your Linkvertise Link to a target. It’s counted after completing all ad-tasks. The problem with only counting the clicks of your links is the following: You’ll only get revenue, when your audience completes the whole ad-tasks.
Impressions are already counted after the user did the reCaptcha (if you’re not a trusted user). Otherwise the impressions will be triggered solely by clicking on your link.
Finding the optimal amount of ad-tasks can be tricky and takes some time but, it is absolute worth it. Because using to many ad-tasks can scare your audience of, which in the end gives you less revenue.
The advertisers have customers from all around the world. Therefore is their target group depending on their customers goals. This means for us that we value geo-locations depending on the predetermined target groups. In the end Top-Tier countries are selected after the demand of our advertisers. Generally speaking Top tier Countries are mostly in North America and Western Europe..
Another Linkvertise exclusive are the clicks from Premium-Users. You’ll find a detailed explanation in the linked article. But, generally speaking the click of a Premium-User is worth more then from a free user.
To illustrate this, we have created a pyramid. This shows the optimal allocation of revenue sources, which are necessary to achieve a high RPM.
The optimal allocation for a high RPM is a strong foundation. This foundation consists of a traffic origin from Top-Tier-Countries (mostly US and EU traffic).
Followed up by a good balance of ad-task and a high completion rate (Ad-Mix & Ad-Traffic).
Continued with traffic from the Search-engine you are already paired pretty good. Just with these four factors it is likely to earn more then $ 40 per 1000 impressions.
Last but not least is traffic from Premium-User. Like we already explained, the click of a Premium-User is more valuable then the click of a Free-User.
