I'm not sure if this has been brought up....

I took a visit to Bid Clix.com and I noticed their ad system is a lot like Adsense. Has anyone tried them? Are they any good?

Hey mello_mike,
welcome to Webmasterworld.com.

I would not go with them, I tried them a while back took forever to get clicks from it, just go with some other Pay Per Click like Google.

I've tried them. I find them to be easy to work with and flexible, but sadly my per click isn't any better than AdSense. The plus would be that they don't restrict your content the way Google does, but that isn't a problem for everyone.

My concern would be the innovation power and pool of advertisers these guys have.

Google is in a superior position and the mentioned restrictions support this role furthermore.

As an advertiser I'd feel comfortable to spend my ad budget with AdWords, not knowing about BC's backbone advertiser program but it might have the same type drawbacks as the ad system does compared to big dog Google.

tried them on one of my pages, but did not get any clicks and they did not show any adds, also they have to approve every page which is very tiresome.

Adfree,

I hear you on the advertiser pool, that is a negative against google. However, I'm not sure I am too fond of google's "innovation power" at this point in life :)

Why would that be a negative on Google?
The more advertisers they serve, the more substance they got for their targeted content ads they offer the publishers.

In terms of the innovation power: the recent improvements and adjustments in both AdWords and AdSense are just the beginning I am sure. Not certain if BC can throw this much capacity in whenever needed...

"Improvements" being a subjective assessment of what was done, is my point. I don't, for example, consider the ability to cut the payout for what appears to be 90% of your publishers an "innovation." That's all I was getting at.

If that is the type of "innovation" and "improvement" to expect, then the lack thereof would be an advantage in the category of Bid Clix. ;)

From what I've seen of Bid Clix, the advertisers consist of the same kinds of pathetic stuff that people already get bugged about in spam mail. If you want to be associated with that, and get low money for your trouble, then, sure, go with them. Google's generally a lot more high class with better quality of advertisers and more money to throw around. But then the quality of the site they are hosted on probably has a lot to do with it as well.

I am looking for an ad program to use instead of AdSense PSAs (not nessesarily text ads), was thinking of ****, but now I am not sure. Could anyone please recommend a program that would let use theor ads as Google alternate ads? Any program that would be acceptable by AdSense TOS? Any positive experience?
We have quite a lot of traffic looking at PSAs, so it's really important.

I agree with that and the banners they show just suck, but at least they show new banners more then the same old Google ads.

AdSense PSAs - just an idea:

I crafted text looking like the regular AS ads to show up instead of the PSAs, they point back to interesting, current and most up-to-date own promotion.

That way there is no interruption in user reception (look and feel across the site remains excatly the same) and I re-route the traffic accordingly instead of wasting.

It has proven to be an interesting additional intrnal promotion tool.

ADfree.......

NOW THAT... is a good idea. I would vote that to be the best idea I have seen this week!
Maybe you could then have it so that it looks at the page its on and serves the right ads for that page.

Of course you can point them to other pages featuring AS ads again, pick highly targeted ones, this counts for a percentage of AS recovery where you (or Google for that matter) might have trouble targeting.
