Like every other blogger, I also started Blogging after seeing the screenshots of Adsense accounts of few bloggers. The thing that came up straight to mind was that Blogging is equal to easy money, but I was proven wrong just in few months.
After many disapprovals, I got approved by Adsense through which I made 95$ in the first month, but instead of sending me payment Google sent me a mail saying that “Your account has been Disabled.” Now, this was the worst thing happened to me.
After getting disabled by Adsense, I thought of moving off with other Ad Networks. Before I got approved by Adsense, I was using Revenuehits, but it wasn’t paying well. So after getting kicked by Google, I somehow got to know about Adsterra. I applied for Adsterra and got approved on 19 September 2016 for my first ever blog (Pakistannn.com). Since then I started using Adsterra on my blog. As I am still a newbie blogger, therefore, I had a very little traffic those days. Moreover, most of the traffic was from Asian countries; therefore, CPM was too low. My earning was only a hundred bucks which took few months to complete.
Here is my Adsterra Review including payment proof as well.

My Adsterra Review As A Publisher
As I have already said above that Adsterra is the first ever Ad Network that I managed to get a payout. So, I have an extra love for Adsterra 😛 . It is going to be the honest review, and I will talk about everything, or you can ask in comments if I forget something.
Adsterra provides everyone a Personal Manager for support/queries blah blah. Even it can be same for everyone 😛 . Their support system is not too good as after mailing the personal manager I had to wait for hours to get the solution or answers to my problems or questions. But still they are good at supporting as they have a support ticket system as well but in my case, I always used to mail directly to the personal manager.
One thing that everyone wants to know is their CPM rates. Everyone knows that CPM rates differ for countries as they have different advertising rates for Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3. Now my blog had low traffic which was mostly from Pakistan & India. CPM rate for the banner was too low for my traffic, so I started using PopUnders (yes they are not suitable for user navigation, but I wanted money 😛 ) Popunders brought a good improvement in CPM rates, and my earning started growing to reach the minimum payout.
Their CPM rate was sometimes so surprising for Pakistani & Indian traffic which began to decrease after few days of me reaching the minimum payout. Here are the screenshots which will clear my point.
As you can see the highest CPM I got was 2.7$ for Pakistani & Indian traffic which kept on increasing or decreasing gradually. I have already told that I was a very newbie ( even I am still ) that time, so I was getting only this traffic. After I had got my first payout, this was the condition of CPM.
After this, I stopped using them since their CPM was killing 😛 . I mailed my personal manager regarding this issue, and he told me that to increase my CPM I should use Pop ads ( even though I was already using ) or get traffic from Tier 1 countries.
Adsterra has automatic payments system. Payment dates are 1,2 and 16,17 of each month. In case of the weekend, payments are processed on the next working day.
If you reached $100 on 8th of June, then your payment will be processed on 1st or 2nd of July.
If you reached $100 on 16th of June, then your payment will be processed on 16th or 17th of July.
If 1st of July is Saturday, then payments will be processed on 3rd and 4th of July.
I got my payment on time, and many people think that Do they actually Pay?
To answer this here is my payment proof:
Now according to my experience, I think Adsterra is the best network if you are having a good amount of traffic and that niche isn’t supported by Adsense. Moreover, it will be great if the traffic is from Tier 1 countries. If you are still struggling with Adsense or your account is disabled you must give a try to Adsterra. Here ends my Adsterra Review, do share it with your friends to get them know about Adsterra.
