Advertise with Mondoweiss – Old

High-quality journalism is vital to building democracy and promoting positive civic engagement. When you advertise with Mondoweiss, you are supporting a public service and giving readers crucial access to strong, independent reporting and analysis.

Mondoweiss is a project of Center for Economic Research and Social Change, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization. As a mission-driven, nonprofit news organization, we accept advertising only from sponsors whose practices do not violate our values. Foremost among these is the principle of equality and full human rights for all who live in Israel/Palestine or who are refugees living in exile from their homes in historic Palestine. We reserve the right to reject advertising from any entity that, in our sole discretion, works against this principle; practices bigotry of any kind, destructive labor or environmental practices, or other systematic exploitation; may offend our readers; or promotes visually, verbally or by reputation ideas or information that is: patently false, libelous, exploitative, hateful, or would be detrimental to the social responsibilities of the organization.

Mondoweiss maintains complete editorial independence from advertisers, which have and will have no influence whatsoever on the direction or content of our reporting.


Per Google Analytics, we receive over 1 million page views per month, with approximately 485,000 unique users per month. When major developments occur either in Palestine/Israel or around US policy, we see surges in site audience–at times up to 90,000 or 100,000 views in one day (in July 2014, during the Gaza offensive, we had 295,000 views on one day).

The Mondoweiss audience is an educated, curious group that takes its values seriously—a good fit for values-driven advertisers with products or services related to Palestine, human rights or political analysis.

As of October 2016, our ads are priced at $2 per thousand impressions (CPM) and $3/CPM depending on size and location. Advertising on websites with traffic comparable to ours is priced from less than $1/CPM to more than $50/CPM.

Minimum purchase is 50,000 impressions; advertisers can purchase any multiple of 25,000 impressions. Ads will automatically expire when the purchased number has been reached, and advertisers will receive a notice offering an option of renewal depending on space availability.

There is evidence showing that readers stop seeing advertising that remains the same over time. We rotate advertisements in each slot with the goal of re-awakening readers’ attention.
