Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I run a few relatively small traffic websites, and I've been using Adsense and Amazon on them so far. Adsense has been decent, but I have a pretty specific audience, and the advertisements that Adsense delivers are usually pretty off the mark. I've seen a few advertisers in CJ that I think would be a good match for my sites, but I'm hesitant to join the program until I know more about it.
So how does it work?
Have your experiences been positive?
How does it compare to Adsense or other affiliate programs?
Can anyone point me to an example of a site that uses CJ. I would like to see how it is used in a site.
If you have tried everything else and just can't come up with an advertiser to fill an advertising slot, I would still recommend placing "Advertise Here" in the empty ad spot. Most of my ad slots make as much money with an empty ad slot as they would with CJ links, but that's just my experience, I'm sure that others have had a better experience than I have had.
Furthermore, the website is easy to use, you have one place to manage a lot of advertisers.
I won't bother to sign up for a marginal affiliate program if it's independent, but will if it's listed in CJ.
I like the idea of contacting the advertisers directly, but I wonder how do I insure that I will get paid for sales associated with my referral?
