Your Ad Here

Some changes...

many of you may have noticed the subtle changes happening on the site in regards to the ads.  I know you fine folks don't come here just for the advertisements, and many of you actually enjoy my blog, but I've tried to team with an ad company whose advertisements would be relevant to my blog posts, and as such, if you saw same thing you liked while reading it, I would figure that you, and an educated person, would click on them to research or buy more.  While tis logic is sound, it doesn't work if the ad's aren't relative to the intrests of the site or its viewers, so with that I shed my ways with Google Adsense (the native monetize for blogger.com) , and moved solely to Adbrite, a company with whom I was running parallel ads as Adsense.
After dropping the few Adsense ads I had (as opposed to the single Adbrite ad I had) I replaced them with Adbrite Ad's and everything seemed to be going according to plan, except somewhere in there, the bids for ads on my site apparently dropped to less then a penny per click (or thats all they were paying) and they dropped their referral program, and didn't notify anyone.
So now, I'd tired of their antics and backwards policies, and have switched yet again, this time to BidVertiser, which seems to be promising (we'll see how it goes).  As for you folks out there using your blogs to try and earn some pocket change, I can tell you that from what I've seen BidVertiser seems to be on equal footing ad Adsense, and pays out monthly (as opposed to Adbrite's 60 day hold policy) and payment is instant if you use PayPal.  So with this in mind, If you'd like to have a look-see, please visit the referral link in the upper right hand of my blog.  So while this ad didn't tell you how to build anything, it certainly tells you how to maintain a profit (or start making one) of something your already doing online... Blogging.

I'm not to fond of them either, however, bidvertiser allows you to disable them, so that your viewers aren't bothered by them.

Thank you for the informative post. Going to give them a try on my blog and see how they are in relation to Adbrite which is what I am using now that I dropped Google.

I'm sticking with AdSense/AdBrite for now. I get about 100 views/day so a few clicks is normal for now. I'll try and get a bigger audience before I try and capitalize on it.

@ Nikola Begedin - I completely understand, I was a die hard adbrite fan until their policies changed. I get about the same as you in traffic, but their payout rate decreased to a 10th of what it was. that means that you now need approximately 10 clicks to equal one click from a month ago.
Also they discontinued their referral service with no notification, so you'll no longer be getting referral payments despite still having their ad on your site, or having people sign up in the past.

I also heard Bidvertiser wasn't so good. Oh well, i'm happy with adsense, so to each their own I guess.
