Difference between MGID ads and Google Adsense
There are very few people who are willing to complaint about their network terms. Their network will grow tih the time and it is continuously growing. But do you think MGID is big enough to compare with adsense? Where google adsense is run by the world’s number company GOOGLE and MGID just have giant financial FINMAN behind them.
Both the companies have similar types of policies with regards to banned content and the ads should be displayed in their network. Adsense in using google ads to advertise their content and on the other side MGID is restricted only to sports, lifestyle and entertainment and health related advertising only. While both these companies are closed in terms of their rate charged, but adsense offers great value to their publishers on filling rates.
While MGID offering excessive support their customers and also observe the performance of the advertisements in the real time, the huge size and volume of operations of adsense leaves MGID in struggling. But clearly it does not mean that, MGID is not the ad network which you can use and make money from it. I am personally using it from last November, 2017 and found their services and value satisfactory. MGID is very easy to use, and anyone who is new on their website feels comfortable while using it first time.

MGID offers a very low minimum payout as per compare to other ad networks of only 50$ USD with wire transfer or from paypal
Surprisingly Good Administration Panel:
Meaning of Surprisingly is, they have lots of options with their advertising company, with the publishers they have the option to recirculate traffic or to display advertisement. However, MGID had managed to put all of their features into a single and easy to learn administration panel.
Cons of MGID for Publishers
MGID is not a bad option at all for those publishers who want to get involved into display ads or traffic exchanges.
Ad relevance could be fine tuned:
They need to make traffic exchange displays slight better in terms of relevance. MGID displaying “top internet stories” which is finding attractive by so many visitors need improvement a bit or a bit fine tuning to make the content relevant to their audience interest as possible.
Few options of payment:
They have paypal and bank wire transfer options, but it would be great if they add few more options in the payment section. But again frankly speaking, these 2 options are enough to cover all the advertisers and publishers.

They are giving benefit to their customer to become advertiser or publisher in same account with easy to use tools. Overall I will give MGID 4.5/5 points.
