As part of our ‘20(14) publisher stories’ blog series, every Monday we’ll introduce you to a publisher and share their success story. Read on to meet this week’s featured publisher, and feel free to share your own success story with us.
Mobile88.com is one of Malaysia’s leading mobile portals, dedicated to covering and reviewing mobile hardware and software, including content and virtual goods media. The site also provides up-to-date news on the latest developments in mobile technology.
Launched in 2004, Mobile88.com now boasts over one million unique visitors a month and has 20 employees based in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines. Alongside its flagship site, Mobile88 currently has three regional websites, with another one set to go live in September 2013, and two more sites covering lifestyle, technology and gaming.
Gerald Lim, CEO of Mobile88.com, tells the story of how the company began its relationship with AdSense. “We looked at what other sites were doing to monetize and what were the most effective networks. AdSense provided the easiest way for us to get started. It was flexible, completely self-service and we could manage ads ourselves.”
Over the years, as the relevance and quality of ads has continued to improve, Mobile88.com’s relationship with AdSense has grown stronger, as has the company’s partnership with Google. Alongside AdSense, Mobile88.com uses DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) to control how ads are served, Google Analytics to track and analyze performance and Webmaster Tools for site optimization.
Mobile88.com is continuing to expand into areas like digital content, virtual goods and rich media such as console-quality games via the cloud. Meanwhile, AdSense revenue is still helping to fuel growth. As Gerald explains, “Since the beginning, AdSense has provided a very stable and consistent income. Even today, our AdSense revenue is continuing to grow.”
