Hi all...

I am curious in getting your sense/opinions of adsense versus other web-ad services (ie - Quigo...etc.) on several guidlines...

-ease of use.
-acceptance restrictions
-which pays on-time.
-which pays more fairly for your content.
-and any other thoughts, opinions.

thanks.

Yeah, I tried them a few months ago. Much nicer interface, much better ad controls, much more user and publisher friendly...

...but at just a few, a very few cents per day, not nearly enough to put a hamburger on the table.

is intellitxt similar to quigo and adsense in how it displays on a page, or is it a popup?

intext is totally different from Quigo. Quigo has blocks of ads similar to adsense. Intext underlines some words in the main text and provides a paid links based on that keyword. I actually quite like it, although I knwo some people hate it. i think it is very unobtrusive

On the subject of Quigo, I must be the only person in the whole world who is actually making more from it than I was before my premature ending from adsense. I actually quite like it in terms of interface etc (basically everything you were asking about). Sticky me if need any further info.

actually, i run quigo on a few pages. Not too many though since the payout is so low. Can you point me to any pages (of course not your own) that use intellitxt so I can see what it looks like? (sticky me if you can)

If you look at high traffic sites, you can usually tell because there are words scattered through the body content that have double underline.

I was going to point to a site that about 2 months ago was using it, but they seemed to have switched over to Adsense....

I have heard from a intellitxt user that he gets 2x more ctr than adsense. Also all large co's like hp, microsoft etc advertise on intellitxt.

I think IntelliTXT is going to become a strong competition, but not a lot of people know about it yet, and I haven't seen IntelliTXT be very aggressive at finding new publishers.

Is there a min amount of visits or impressions? Has anyone seen how their stats are?

Banner ad networks like Burst has partnered with Intellxt, but offers the service only to high traffic sites. But you can't run Intellxt and Adsense on the same page, so you need to choose either one to run.

I use Burst and was sent a mail from them asking if I'd like to use IntelliText.

I have around 250,000 page views a month so maybe there limits are less than the 1 million a month.

Haven't tried it though as I'm doing fine with Adsense, but one or two other Burst members have and didn't report brilliant results.

Doh! I ran across a couple of sites in the last week that were (in light of this thread) using Intellitext.

But... the darned underlining everywhere had me convinced I had somehow picked up a bit of spy/adware.

Now that was a frustrating evening.

That's why we're not happy with it. CTR is good, but we received a lot of complaints from our users saying that we tricked them; that they can tolerate the various ads on a page, but please spare the content. Plus, we don't want to run into trouble with Adsense so we chose Adsense.

I have never used Intellxt, but was wondering, is it not allowed to use Intellxt along with AdSense?

Not if done through Burst it doesn't. I am nto even remotely close to that kind of figure (less than 20%).

I am happy with it as the earnings are OK (certainly comparable to what I was getting with Adsense). In fact I am thinking in rolling it out across my whole site rather than just specific pages.

Horses for course I suppose. To clear up a point. NEITHER Intext or adsense would be happy for anyone to combine them both on a page. It is against BOTH TOS to do so. I can't even have quigo (who are far more relaxed about such matters) on the same page as intext as it woudl break theor TOS

>>P.S.. hey blairsp are you sure? << Absolutely sure. You would be breaking both Intellitext & adsense TOS. NEITHER allow you to have competing contextual text ads on the same page at the same time. Report them to either company and you will see a sudden change in their pages

MSN uses kanoodle.Had applied to them but no response. I think they have send invitations to potential sites to join their network.

Yes, Companies are individually inviting publishers to join their network. It seems competition is growing...
