Can anyone comment on Adbrite earnings? Is it worth trying out? I would assume that Adbrite earnings would only be a fraction of Adsense earnings...

I am interested in knowing this as well. I just bought an arcade site and would like to put Adbrite on it for the first couple of months. I don't want to put adsense for the fear of invalid clicks. Arcade sites generate a lot of unintentional clicks due to the "tricking" strategy they employ.

Personal experience : For every two cents you make with Google Adsense, you can make about one cent with Adbrite.

Hi,

AdBrite is a *tiny* fraction of AdSense revenue for me, and much more work.

But it is sufficiently different to be worth running the two in tandem for diversity...

DamonHD,

Do you have Adbrite on the same pages as Adsense.

I'm just wondering, maybe you are losing Adsense clicks if someone clicks on an Adbrite ad?

On average do you get more per click with Adsense?

thaidomain,

Has your overall ad income increased using both systems?

Hi,

Yes I have AB and AS on the same page.

No, I don't think they interact with one another, eg stealing clicks from one another.

For anyone who is having some level of success with AdBrite, I would appreciate if you would post and provide a general idea of the subject matter of your stie.

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,

Looks interesting and a good fit with Adsense.

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?

I thought AdSense prohibited other content-triggered ads on the same page? AdBrite would clearly fall into that category.

Hi,

AdBrite is *not* content targetted in the AS sense of examining the page and automatically deciding which are relevant ads to show.

AB runs the the same ads wherever you put the AB slot.

Advertisers may "target" their ads to your site, but that is not the same at all.

I also assume you can pay to advertise with adbright while running adsense on your site?

This is simmular to advertising with adwords while runiing adsense on your site.

Kontera does not place minimum requirements on traffic - just go and sign up. Although my experience has been that the revenue is a fraction of Adsense.

Hi,

I mainly use AB to advertise rather than earn revenue: at least 20:1 in terms of expenditure:income. And I am adversiting pages that support AS ads.

What's this on the page listing publisher qualification at Kontera:

To qualify for ContentLinkô your website must:

Generate more than 500,000 page impressions per month

My site earns roughly $60 a day from Google. I triead Adsense for about 6 months and my daily earnings never exceeded $3. It's a rip off, believe me.

here is a comparison between Adbrite and Adsense:

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?

Hi toldan,

I don't think that the AB/AS difference is quite as stark as that!

But yes, my guess is that for most people that can run both (eg appropriate content, not banned by G, etc), AS will be much better in terms of revenue and effort.

I thought Google and Adsense were one and the same. Adsense is a google invention.

What I earn from adbrite in one month is actually quite less than what I earn from adsense in one single day (24 hours).

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.

I think the poster meant AdBrite instead of AdSense.
He makes $60/day with AdSense and $3/day with AdBrite.
