Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I have a question about advertising that I hope someone can help with.
I have a well indexed, established site that gets around 400,000 page views a month. I have no advertising currently but would like to start. Who should I use? Google Adsense? Yahoo? MSN? An affiliate? I found a company called Burst Media - anyone heard of them? Any advice would be great. I need to earn some additional revenue if I am going to keep the site going!
Also, how much can I reasonably expect to make?
I've been with Burst since 1999 and found them good, not great. They have good months and bad, but since achieving better traffic numbers, find their fill rates falling.
Tribal Fusion never answered the phone and I got standard email responses. I got the impression that they didn't think I was worth talking to - not impressed with them at all.
On the other hand, if you have a very specialized hign-end market niche, you just might get someone interested.
With your traffic, AdSense could provide an income in the $30K/annual range, and seems like a good choice. One again, however, it depends on what advertisiers are willing to pay for your niche. A forum site, for example, would bring next to nothing at your traffic level. A content-rich, well written site directed to a highly competitive market could bring in twice what I estimated above.
they give more to customer than keeping for them like google adsense , google keeps more for theirselves rather than giving to customer. i have a friend who really made a difference with Yahoo Ads he had been using google adsense but was not getting much and then tried yahoo ads and he is happy now :)
My content is highly specialized - niche market. I tried Google and Burst. I noticed a 30% drop in membership. I took the ads off and boom - membership shot back up again. I don't know which one is to blame but it's not worth it. I lost more trying it than I gained.
