If not AdSense, Fastclick

I am going to experiment with Fastclick, but have wondered what people thought of the payouts, etc.

Generally, I have heard good things

I was with Fastclick for 4 years until they booted me off for not having their banner above the fold... which is a term I didn't understand at the time... when I ask they did not reply just closed my account.

However, they did pay on time every time without fail. Having said that I did not make much even though I have a high traffic site about 9 thousand hits a day.

To earn any good money you will need to up their pop-code on every page and their ads are mainly smile icons
and gambling... in the end it is your decision... good luck...

TEXT ADS for fastclick are only .15

I bet I can do better somewhere else. What are the other alternatives?

Fastclick is one of the advertisers I use along with Google and Tribal Fusion.

Fastclick has the most annoyiny ads that you must go in and "kill" every day or face angry emails from regulars and driving the new ones off.

AND they don't make me very much money...I am looking to replace them and have also given affiliate marketing a thought or two. If you have been rejected by FC count yourself lucky! The only thing that makes any money with FC are pop unders.

I agree with Ann about Fastclick.

But even a daily weed-out of crap adverts isn't good enough to get rid of them entirely. They seem to sneak in overnight, so they are inevitably on your sites for at least a few hours.

I'm sure that some of the advertisers know pefectly well that webmasters aiming to keep a quality look to their sites are pruning dodgy ads. They continuously add new campaigns to try and catch you out on the assumption that no-one checks 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year.

Too much hassle for just a few cents.

Totally agree with the above two posts. Ran Fastclick for less than a week, we have a high traffic site (150,000 page views per day) and I just couldnt have their tacky, flashing adverts on there, readers were complaining.

I tried filtering them but they always came back. I also emailed support for a solution or workaround but they never replied.

Waste of time IMO.

Have you guys had any success with a CPA network?

I've had a good experience with Fastclick. You can set it to display no ads except those you've approved, and that is what I do. I check the Fastclick site every day to approve any new ads that are acceptable. I don't approve the smileys, "you have won" or any of that rubbish, but I still find ads I can accept on my site.

I'm not making buckets of money, but I make more from Fastclick these days than any other source. Certainly more than from Adsense.

I've been with Fastclick over 2 years now and they always pay on time.

Do you use text ads from Fastclick? The current bids are rather light at 15 cents, but I just implemented the code on my site. Will it go up as impressions move up?

Also, their ads make the pages run a little slower. How can I fix this?

I tried the Fastclick text ads briefly but got rid of them because I wasn't making any money from them.

We've been using Fastclick for years. Very good results for banner ads, pop-unders and medium rectangles. Well recommended, and also Casale.
