I'm saying how they make decent money if their ads are in the worst possible spots.
Because they don't rely on CPC ads where the placement is critical for good CTR and good income
They use mostly CPM ads, either by selling the ads themselves or using an ad network. In one ad network, for example, Mashable's 300x250 ads are sold at $33 CPM.
That's how they make money -- the high CPMs plus the high traffic = high income.
