Hi, I have a "comment" or graphics site for users of myspace, my yearbook, tagged, etc. It is 9 months old. My google analytics show around 3,000,000 page views + 100,000 uniques a month. Has a PR of 3, with 7 extended links in google. Quantcast ranks it at 31,000 and alexa US traffic says around the same.

Does anyone know of the top paying ad servers? I heard of bluefly Also, I would be quite willing to contact advertisers directly.

I would very much appreciate anyone with any tips on how much this site should be making etc.

Thank You, Jim

Just dug up some old statistics according to the market share.

Vendor_______________________Ad viewers (millions)
Google---------------------------1,118
DoubleClick (bought by Google)---1,079
Yahoo----------------------------362
MSN (Microsoft-------------------309
AOL------------------------------156
Adbrite--------------------------73

you can discuss it further here, as in what would be the most appropriate for you. It would be an interesting case study. :)

I think he maybe means adnetworks no adservers.

If adservers then Google have thier Admanager which you could try, a bit clunky I think though. Openads is good as well. Renegade Internet do a hosted adserver that we used for years as had all the right functionality demanded by insertion orders from ad companies, something Openads did not at the time.

However, if you are looking for adnetworks to put ads on your site then for non-site targeted you could try:

Tribal Fusion
Burst Media
Value Click Media
Adsense

for targeted higher CPM ads you could try to join Gorilla Nation or Glam Media, who will sell your site and do things like skins.

There are a bunch of filler type networks as well. YOu could alkso join the above and use something like pubmatic to optimise. Things are just starting to pick up a little tiny bit in display ads after a bit of downer in some sectors so worth looking into.

IMHO, Adsense is by far the most ROI when you do not want to spend any time on this topic.

If you have some time with you at your disposal, it is worth investigating the ones mentioned by FattyB above.
