Reviews for Wafra Ad Network

Wafra is heralded as the number one ad network in the MENA region. However, it’s essential to take a deep dive into the reviews for Wafra media before trusting this company with something as important as your money and advertising. Here’s a little bit more insight as to what the reviews for Wafra media say.


Wafra is used by over 8000 sites in the MENA region, a statistic that speaks for itself. However, there are some reviews on the publishing side (for those who want to make some extra money advertising on their site with ads provided by Wafra). However, these ads are sparse and it is tough to judge whether they are reputable or not. One reviewer states that while it is easy to get your sit approved on Wafra Media, the process of advertising takes time.


Generally, Wafra is a safe bet for advertising your products in the Middle East and Arab world, but maybe not for publishing. This reputable ad network has a proven track record of securing success for the advertisers it works with. Wafra Media can help facilitate the process of getting your ads out into a foreign market.
