Sad news this week when we heard that Adproval were closing up shop after nearly 5 years. We wrote about Adproval in 2015 after Passionfruit Ads changed their way of working and became less attractive for many bloggers to use, but it seems like Adproval have suffered the same fate – it has been unsustainable to run an advertising network for smaller bloggers.
Adproval will be closed effective March 31st 2017 so any ads being loaded through them will no longer show. Any ads purchased through Adproval after February 15th will have the Adproval fee refunded.
We’re sad to see Adproval closing – there have been so few alternatives for bloggers to use to run their own ads on their site. It seems like the best way to deal with it is to run them yourself but that doesn’t give the buyer security when the site owner does not live up to their end of the bargain and getting the ads up on time. We’ll cover any alternatives that we come across.
