Bye-bye, Nuffnang!

Can't make money online with NuffnangAfter almost 3 months of displaying the I serve Nuffnang ads banner on our blog’s right sidebar, I am now removing it because not even one ad appeared there and not a single cent was earned during the last 3 months.

I know, some bloggers are earning from Nuffnang. It looks, though, like there are specific niches that appeal more to Nuffnang advertisers and our blog’s niche is not one of those.

This I discovered because even in Nuffnang’s Asia Pacific Blog Awards, only a few blog niches will be recognized which goes to show these niches are the prized niches.

What are these? They are the Shopping, Food, Fashion, Parenting, Travel, Celebrity, and Entertainment blogs.

Blogs that deal with gadgets, technology, cars, and I assume business and finance, are lumped together in a category interestingly termed “Geek Blogs.”

This is strikingly in contrast with the “uber-flowing” number of categories in the Philippine Blog Awards.

Question to Nuffnang publishers: Are you earning a lot from it? How’s the Nuffnang experience?

As for me, it’s bye-bye Nuffnang time already.

    Same i noticed only there logo is showed there.

  2. BrianB says:

    That’s why I’d rather sell my own ads. I could even tailor it to the needs of the advertiser.

  3. Jinoe says:

    I was able to generate some income but not as good as Google Ads. And the dashboard on buffered earnings creates some confusion. I wrote it down at the forums. But, Im sticking to it for a few more months and see if it improves.

  4. Reel Advice says:

    I actually got Nuffnang Ads the second time I tried their service. The first time I tried i waited for months and no ads came.

    Right now, ads are popping up for Ponds but it seems that it shows up only a short time in a day. Is Nuffnang limiting viewing time of their ads to limit the earnings of publishers? I believe the Ponds ad is paid via CPM and not CPC.

    I earned from Nuffnang na. Minsan lang din ako nilabasan ng ads. At pag lumabas ang ads nila, nawawala din bigla, kasi may quota per day. Pag na reach mo na yung quota for that day, wala ka nang ads. Bukas ulit. After almost a year, buti nalang may kita na ako. Not that big, pero not that small din. Pwede na pambili ng tatlong HP Mini 2140. Hehe.

    Pangit lang sa nuffnang kasi konti lang ang target market nila. Kadalasan sa ads ay mga beauty products or gamot. Ehdi mga Beauty/Medicine related blogs lang ang mag e earn. Minsan nilabasan din ako, pero minsan lang.

    Tuloy parin yung Nuffnang ko. I’m not sad and I’m not satisfied. I’m on the middle lang. hehehe ^__^

  6. Jehzeel Laurente says:

    @Reel Advice – yep. CPM sila. Pero may limit lang na around 100 pesos per blogger, minsan more than 100 pesos (Depende sa ads). Yung Nike Ads nila umabot ako ng 600php per day. Yun yung highest daily earning ko from Nuffnang so far.

    Pangit lang talaga kasi may quota, pero at least, kumikita yung impressions at hindi na sasayang. Kahit walang mag click, may cents yung bawat visit. hehe

  7. Dinah says:

    very small pa lang ang earnings ko sa nuffnang, but nasa middle din ako, neither satisfied nor dissatisfied. keri lang, ha ha.

  8. Jay Castillo says:

    Thank you James for sharing this. I’ll check my nuffnang stats and if there are still no ads/earnings inspite of the traffic, I will have to really consider saying goodbye. It’s just sad that they don’t serve any ads related to business/finance/real estate.

  9. Tyrone | Millionaire Acts says:

    I share the same sentiment James. I think I should also remove them in my blog.

  10. jonharules says:

    Tried it for several weeks then opted it out because I couldn’t see any earnings.

  11. Reel Advice says:

    @Jehzeel Laurente – Wow that are great statistics. it seems that Nuffnang capped my site for around P10 a day. That would take forever to reach the 2k cash out.

  13. Randy says:


    Maybe you just need to try other Nuffnang ad sizes such as the square and the 720×90 header banner.
    My earnings came from these 2 ad sizes before but i had to let go of my header banner because of my other CPM network ad.

    The 2 sizes are better options since it collapses if there’s no on-going campaign.

    I earned from it but not that big as Jehz’s. I can only buy 1 HP mini note from my Nuffnang earnings. haha!

    And one more thing, I saw you serving Jayvee’s ads (blogbank) before, kaya hindi ka glitteratti. May priority kasi ung mga glitterati publishers eh.

    Isa pang ayaw ko is ung limit nga sa impressions. (dapat tanggalin nila to.)

    Ditto! Ever since Nuffnang opened its doors I had installed their ad code in my blog. My total earnings as of today is a measly P254. Hay…

    I have their ads at my blog. Minsan lang lumabas yugn ads ko at hanggang sa ngayon nakapako pa rin ako sa Php 1006 ang tagal nga umabot sa 2000 last ads ko sa blog ko ay December pa.. hay naku

  16. says:


    my largest nuffnang withdrawal (almost 11K).. last week.. expected ko next month dumating ung check..

    Il update you if dumating na ung check (and post ko din sa blog ko).. kaya lumaki ng ganyan ung earnings ko because of NIKE ads, more of sports ads kasi kaya swak sa niche ko… =)

    after ko mag cash out.. meron na agad akong 1500 as of today.. may mga nag pa Ads sa kin agad.. (nestle products) naman…

    update kita james..


  17. James | says:

    @Randy, I tried changing the ad format before. Still didn’t work. I really think it’s the niche that counts. There are some blog niches that Nuffnang advertisers like and there are niches they don’t like.

    @TeamPilipinas, congrats! Lakas talaga ng sports blog mo. Pa-burger ka naman! :)

  18. Ambo says:

    So far not so good hehe pero atleast me kita pa din ako sa Nuffnang. Dati inalis ko sya kaso nagsisi ako kasi dapat mas malaki ang kinita ko before. Dati gamit ko sa sidebar lang pero i experiment at nilagay ko lahat ng ads sa blog ko. kung sino mauna sya maiwan haha. Twice na din ako nakakuha ng payment sa kanila.

  19. Ronald Redito says:

    I also have the same problem as you. Too bad our niche is not in the priority.

  20. Chris says:

    so far may kinikita rin po ko sa nuffnang pero di rin po ganun kalaki..ewan ko nga rin po kung bakit ganun.hayyy

  21. Mark | says:

    Thanks for the update.

    I’m really thinking about taking it off my site too.

    The problem, IMHO, has something to do with their publisher application and selection process. If they don’t have enough advertisers to feed to publishers then they should put a ceiling to the number of members that they admit.

  22. says:


    (update on my check) yesterday I received an email from Nuffnang.. they preparing my pay out check and they are asking me my bank account details, complete full name, etc so that they can deposit your my check once its signed… good news to kasi it seems that hindi na nila ipapadala ung check sa address ko instead iDeposit na lang nila sa bank account ko directly ung funds.. =)

    update kita ulit next time..

    ps. (off topic) I tried Kontera in 2 weeks pero naka $26 lang ako.. kaya tinanggal ko na last week.. then I tried Infolinks… in the first 2 DAYS (Saturday & Sunday) naka $46 na agad ako.. =)

  23. James | says:

    @Mark, I think Nuffnang wants to have as many members as possible because that’s how they can sell the service. I agree, though, with too many members, they will all be competing for ad slots if there are only very few advertisers.

    @TeamPilipinas, good to hear that. Galing talaga ng Team Pilipinas, hehe! :)

  24. says:


    update… GOOD NEWS.. na deposit na ung FUNDS ko from Nuffnang… nasa Unionbank EON account ko na.. 1 day clearing lang.. so less 20 days lang ung paghihintay ko since nag cash out ako from Nuffnang..
    10,728.32 ung cash out pero may 10% deduction (TAX)…

    anyway.. iblog ko to next week… i will post some screen shots of the payment.. and im still waiting for Nuffnang’s email regarding my reuqest for the scanned copy of my check… sana lang na scan nila before nila na deposit sa bank..

    Congrats, Team Pilipinas! Pa-burger ka naman! :)

    I agree that Infolinks is better than Kontera. But can you give more details about Nuffnag?
    I havent try it.

  29. shalla says:

    Meyron din akong nuffnang ads more than 4 month ang sagad ng offer, so far isa lang ayaw ko sa nuffnang ads,mdalas bumabagal ang loading ng site ko dhil sa script nila.kaya pinagtatanggal ko, binabalikko lang  pag medyo ok na.hopefully more ads and campaigns.Medyo malaki kaso offer  nito, meyron nga 88 pesos.

  33. Missay Jane says:

    Meron rin akong nuffnang on my blog, kadalasan sa ads ko ay yung per unique visit kaso ngalang napapansin ko hindi lumalabas ang ads kapag mataas ang visit-nagpapakita lang xa kapag kunti ang traffic o kaya for the first 40(assuming lng po) readers kaya ayun hindi ako kumikita!

  34. Asianzilla says:

    I was thinking about using Nuffnang, but your post is discouraging :-(

  35. Ellen Bernardino says:

    On and off ang advertisement sa site ko, sa kin after 6 months kong nilagay yung 3 ads nila saka nagkaroon ng advertisement, tatanggalin ko na rin dapat kasi puro si churp churp ang lumalabas at that time. So far meron na rin akong earnings after one year pero hindi pa redeemable kasi malayo pa.. (;

  36. Shayn Summer says:

    What is better ba? Adsense of Nuffnang. If am not earning in nuffnang, will I have a possibility of earning better if I choose Adsense instead?

    And also, how many daily view would generate income?

    I was looking for nuffnang review and found this but it was 6 years ago. I’ve just tried nuffnang and have put it on my own blog ( Will see how it goes!

  38. Juan Pedro says:

    Just appended the codes on my weeks old blog pero based sa feed back nang mga bloggers wala daw talagang masyadong kita sa nuffnang for not so famous sites. You need to have a great deal of traffic before you can earn.

  39. Matthew Holmes says:

    I did have the Nuffnang ads in the header and sidebar of my blog, but I’ve removed the ads since I didn’t make any money from them yet. I’ve had some clicks on my Google Adsense banner.

    1. Daniel Koepf says:

      Give Adnow a try It works very well especially in dieting blogs.

  40. Daniel Koepf says:

    I was never successful with Nuffnang because it barely ever shows ads. If you want to effectively monetize your website, use Adsense (yes, since April 2016 it works on Tagalog content!!!) and/or Adnow:

  41. Jowett Isaiah Go says:

    I was planning to use nuffnang in my techblog: but it seems they’re not serving ads well in my niche. I’m with adsense instead. Thanks for this heads up!

  42. Adrian Crisostomo says:

    Hi! I’m not seeing nuffnang right now. Is nuffnang philippines totally closed?

    1. Tal | PFD says:

      seems like their PH office closed shop last December, read their tweet re last payout just now so wasn’t able to get my remaining earnings. :(

  43. Bryan Veloso says:

    So that’s why the syndicate add javascript doesn’t work anymore. Then I checked the website today and it’s down. :D I earned more than 1.2m in Nuffnang during their early days (not via ads on site, but sponsored posts via Nuffnang). Anyway, all good things must come to an ad. Goodbye Nuffnang Philippines! :(
