Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I've been over at AdBrite and browsed around for a few minutes on several occasions. Each time, I left thinking the ads seemed to be geared more towards "pop culture" (for lack of a better phrase)
Put another way - if I have a site about industrial widgets, I can count on AdSense providing ads from widget manufacturers, widget service companies, etc. From what I have seen at AdBrite, it doesn't appear if they are going to attract that type of "serious" (again, for lack of a better term) advertisers.
Am I wrong? If Yes, I welcome any examples.
Farmboy, I saw this ad system implemented on a website that had good industrial advertisers. The ad system was called Kontera, they provide in content links,
By "this ad system" do you mean AdBrite or Kontera?
Speaking of Kontera, don't they require several hundred thousand impressions per month just to sign-up?
Adbrite usually pays 10 cents per clicks
Adsense usually pays "many times more" (depending on the topic).
Adbrite targeting is poor (you will get bunch of casino ads); Adsense targeting is supreme.
Are you satisfied with the answer?
There are no real advertisers that I am working with at adbrite, it's just those network ads which I myself do not find very interesting as far as the enticement to click on it is concerned. (clarification: I do not click on my own ads, It's just how I see different ads running on my site and the 'enticement factor' in it.)
The reason why I still am with adbrite is because I can't put adsense to appear on pages with search results e.t.c. (against their guidelines) so I am just filling up the ad inventory there. Average CPC at adbrite is less than 0.4 cents no matter what the keyword is.
