How Does Hacker Noon make money?


We will never put up paywall, charge reader, run a popup ad, or pay for content to get published on Hacker Noon.

However, we do make money through sponsorship and partnership:

  • Top Navigation Billboard Banner Ad: simple, effective, non-intrusive. Appears on every page on the site, great for maximum impressions and traffic.
  • Ad-by-Tag Ad: specific, affordable, flexible. All placements based on content relevancy.
  • Brand as author: opens your door to HackerNoon. Publish or republish high quality blog posts, press releases, data, and software updates.
  • Tech Company News Page: Get your own News Aggregator on HackerNoon. Example here
  • Noonifications: your AD banners and CTA blast on our daily newsletters to 130K+ subscribers
  • Writing Contests: our hottest inventory, bringing massive brand recall from your intended audience. See live contests here
