We provide you a set of unique Ad Tags for your website and these are hosted and served by the Microsoft-backed company, Appnexus.
They manage five geographically-disparate, dedicated data centers around the world:
- Los Angeles, California, USA
- North Bergen, New Jersey, USA

- Frankfurt, Germany
Each data center has redundant power and network feeds including auxiliary power in case of an outage.

Because every website is different, there’s not one simple way to generalize earnings for all of our Publishers. Our Publisher Support team is happy to help you estimate your earnings, and provide support to help you meet your revenue goals. Learn more about the factors that influence earnings in the article, How Much Will I Earn?
CPM rates will vary significantly based on a number of variables, such as where your audience is based and which ad units you run on your site. We also take into consideration the click through rate of the ad units. We’ve explained this in detail in the blog, What CPM Rate can I Expect?
Gourmet Ads provides advertising on a CPM basis which is an acronym for “Cost Per Mille,” with “Mille” meaning “1000”. So, “CPM” represents the fee we pay per 1000 ad impressions. If you have two ads per page, then you would only need to display 500 page impressions (2 Ads x 500 page impressions) to generate 1000 ad impressions.
When you are approved by Gourmet Ads, we’ll send you a welcome email which includes your login details for Publisher Console as well as ad tags for your site.
To get started, simply copy and paste each ad tag directly onto your website (preferred), or into your ad server, then you’ll begin earning revenue.
Gourmet Ads receives dozens of Publisher applications each week. Each site is reviewed by our Publisher Support Team and we only accept sites if they meet our eligibility requirements.
Approval typically takes no more than one week, allowing our team time to ensure there is an appropriate balance of advertisers to publishers.
Priority is given to sites that:
a) Have two ad units above-the-fold (we prefer a 728×90 and 300×250)
b) Allow at least two high visibility ad units
Be sure that your website or blog meets our Publisher Eligibility requirements. If your site does, apply to become a Publisher here.
