AdBolt - In-game Minecraft Advertising
What is it?
AdBolt offers in-game Minecraft advertising. Once you install the AdBolt plugin to your server, you can then visit publisher.adbolt.net to sign up for an account. Once you configure your account with the AdBolt plugin, you will start to see advertisements displayed on your server in which you will be paid for. You can then visit the dashboard or type /adstats to see in depth statistics regarding your earnings and server statistics. Once you reach $1, you can withdraw your earnings to PayPal.
How do I earn money?
Unlike many other advertising systems, AdBolt pays publishers based off of impressions. Every time an advertisement runs, which is every 3 minutes, AdBolt counts the amount of players that are online, then adds it to your total impression count. Once you reach $1 in funds, you can then withdraw to PayPal.
Why do I need it?
If you are looking for extra profit, or even looking to help pay for your monthly server bill, AdBolt is perfect for you. Donors still have the ability to donate, but those who do not have the funds or just do not wish to donate are still contributing to keep the server up and running.
