Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I started using valueclick and within 1 hour I made over 120$... and decided while my adsense is not active (because they are holding my payments) i'd run them together.
I heard many people use valueclick as their public service ad replacement, and I just want to clarify this.. not that I'll need adsense anymore since 120$ in 1 hour to me is more than I could earn on adsense even when I was earning 500-1000$ day on adsense.
Also I just watched in delight of the hourly graph on ValueClick, it's so sexy... Hourly Graphs in my currency at high rates WOOHOO!.

If they aren't showing up, then you can show whoever's ads you like. Valueclick/fastclick ads are fine with adsense anywayprovided they arent the (useless) contextual version.
I find the amount you get from valueclick in comparison to Google to be a little unbelievable. Not a case of sour grapes perchance ;) I run both, and Google has ALWAYS earned roughly twenty times what FC/VC earns me.
I'll be sending a nice apache.log file now.. :)
Oh, I don't think you should assume that, 40some. I think GP has great faith in his site and in Google. His site is under review now, but he is confident that he will be reinstated.
Why lose earnings by taking AdSense off the site?
Silly me. (slapping my forehead with my palm) why didn't I think of that? Makes sense the way you explain it ;)
I was just thinking that whilst under review I'd be showing ads that actually paid. Especially as they pay him so much better than Google do anyway - apparently.
Anyway guys, thanks for caring, valueclick is random somedays it makes 10-20$ , someday 200$, someday 60$... but really it's down to it not showing much impressions, a buggy code? or what I don't know, i might try their none-js version of ads maybe theres some kinda bug.
the e-mail states 'if we continue to observe invalid clicks'
So you've had a real response from them or a canned one?
I would imagine the huge fluctuation you are seeing is due to PPC ads, as they often will really hoist your earnings, but when people don't click on them, you get NADA, and having Auto Select on, they will serve more and more CPC ads, and less better earning CPM.
OTOH, if you are getting lots of clicks, stick with a mix of CPC and CPM, but kill some of the lower paying CPC. Either way, you'll want to NOT auto select.
