    1) Use more than 1 ad widget- By using more than one ad widget, you are definitely increasing the ad density, and the click-through rate will increase accordingly. This will be reflected in your page RPM. Typically, you can have one sidebar and one after-content ad position. Additionally, you can also have one in-content (in the middle of the content) ad placement which can increase your Taboola revenue by over 30%.

    2) Understand the best Performing Platform- We have seen Taboola ads perform quite well on desktop and miserable on mobile. This is indeed interesting. The results can be different for you, but it is a general trend. You can optimize the ad layout on the desktop and maybe use a different ad network for your mobile traffic.

    3) Increase the Visibility Rate- The CTR and the CPC automatically increase if your ads are visible for more time. An ad is considered to be viewable or visible if 50% of the ad is seen for at least 2 seconds. We recommend the visibility rate be more than 50% so that you can see higher revenue. If your ad’s visibility rate is 80%, you can expect your income to double itself. For high visibility, the ads need to be placed at prime locations, and also the page speed of your site needs to be much better. These metrics have a high impact on your overall ad revenue.

    4) Get More US traffic- Taboola pays high rates for US traffic, and you should be focusing on bringing more US traffic to your site if you’re planning to make big money from Taboola. Writing on topics that interest US markets can get you more traffic. Alternatively, you can write about evergreen topics that attract an audience from all sources, like quotes, inspirational stories, etc.

    Taboola CPM Rates for 2023

    There has been a gradual decrease in the CPM rates offered by Taboola over the years. This is partly due to the fact that Taboola has been actively adding publishers under its network to increase the supply side, thereby reducing the demand.

    Taboola CPM rates for 2023 are high for desktop traffic. Also, we’ve seen the rates are pretty good, especially for US traffic, followed by the UK. However, for the rest of Europe, the rates are reasonable, and they are lowest for Asian traffic, including India.

    Taboola Video Ads

    Recently, Taboola is beta testing video ads that automatically display the bottom article widget. Publishers see some increase in overall earnings because of the video ads. It will be interesting to see how Taboola capitalizes on its video ad inventory and bring more revenue for publishers. As you can see in the image below, around 21,000 impressions were taken with an average RPM of $3. If you’re a higher volume of US traffic, you can expect the rates to be a bit on the higher end, and the impression RPMs will be high as well. Also, the fill will be higher! Do check out our Taboola Payments article here. 

    Here, you can take a look at the revenue of your Taboola widget based on the ad placements. On our blog, we see the maximum revenue from clicks coming through the mid-article widget and the sidebar widget, where the ad RPM is $0.33 and $0.14.
