Ahh, another Adsense alternative post.

Our larger site is not doing well with adsense. They keywords it is using just arn't relative. And when it is relative, we get the same ads no one is interested in over and over.

I know what needs to be done. I need a service where I can pick keywords or pick ads. Say for example, computer games, playstation games, etc.

Most of the 'correct' ads we get are either 3c clicks, not interesting, or SPAM ADS.

So has anyone delt with 'eAdExchange'? Looks promising. I read a lot of bad things or negative qualities of pay-per-click services in the forums.

If someone can point me in the right direction, I'd apreciate it!

I checked out eAdExchange's Web site since I have not heard of it prior to your post. My suggestion to you is to stay with the bigger Tier 2-3 CPC networks. Some of the ones that I have had some experiance with are Kanoodle BrightAds, SearchFeed, and Quigo's AdSonar. I highly recommend either Kanoodle or Quigo from a publisher point of view. Search the boards too and you'll find lots of posts about this topic.

It looks like Kanoodle BrightAds automatically determines ads and content as well. Concerned that I'll have the same problem - ads not targeted for the age range of my viewers, and no control over ad content.

Whats the difference between Ads and an Affiliate program? (Hi I'm new, ha ha).

Then adsense finds one decent add that fits real well, dominates the entire site with it, and its less than a 3 click.

I checked out those other sites.

The one I found has only 80 ads to choose from, total. So it didn't really work out.

I became an associate of Amazon.

This is good because not only can I pick product catagories, I can pick individual products. Like strategy guides, and the new Harry Potter book soon to hit the shelves.

It too allows you to fully adjust appearance and styles. You can list certain products and a dynmically generated best seller ad, or most popular, whatever!

Still keeping Adsense on my other sites that are doing well. Maybe not make as much with Amazon, but the content is true, and Adsense was doing very poor. I've now eliminated the spam, bogus ads, and irrelevant topics from my site :) The ads look very good as well - all have pictures.

We'll see how it goes!

I tried bidvertiser.com and found them interesting. It might be an alternative to Adsense, not a complement (incompatible with AdSense TOS).

We recommend Fastclick and Casale Media. Fastclick now do text ads (not contextual).
