    I work on WordAds and wanted to address one point in your review where you compare it to AdSense. Google is actually of the bidders in WordAds. WordAds optimizes AdSense vs. ads from real time bidding, Facebook Audience Network, Yahoo, Aol, Amazon a9, and others.

    Thanks so much for the clear review.

    Have you try jetpack premium plan? Is it true our blog got straight approval to their ads if we subscribe premium plan?

  3. lookman says:

    Its a great way to earn with your website, World ads has partnership with Google, Citro and the rest so its already compatible with adsense. The problem is that they need to add more payment options as most countries have issues with paypal.

  4. Papaga Bless says:

    It is very true that once you have the Premium Jet Pack, they approve you straightforward. They even have an auto-placement option. Thanks for this great review.

  5. wangmingjun says: VIP has three plan: personal/premium/business. Wordads will be available for the plan of premium and business directly, and personal plan users need apply for wordads.

  6. Emy says:

    I just got to known about Jetpack ads and I’m so excited about it.

    Haven been disapproved by the very unnecessarily strict AdSense, this seems like a much better option.
