Tired of JUNK Ad Networks..

4 replies
Why is it hard to find an AD serving network that does not keep rotating in redirects, pop ups (even though expressedly not allowing those) and junk / Trojan or misleading ads?

I have tried a bunch of them over the past 12 months and nothing but JUNK.

(I know adsense, but due to my genre they banned me, so screw them.) Currently using Lijit/sovrn but their fill rates suck at about 25%.

Contextweb after 8 months of nice income decided that my website was not interested by their advertisers (total BS) and asked me to stop using them.

Just soo frustrating.. I run a perfectly fine and legal Firearms and Hunting, Politics related site with a ton of traffic and it is highly under utilized money wise.

At least Buysellads is working out well and local advertisers.

Latest disappointments :

lijit/Sovrn : Good ads (sometimes a few bad ones get through though), decent CPM, very low fill rate, counts about 30% of actual requests/impressions vs verifiable GA data.
EPOM : total crap ads. Almost 100% redirects on Mobile devices, horrible CPM
Buysiteads : seems to be run by one or two people. Never answers questions, site seems buggy (by their own words) trying to add a site for approval.
Clicksor : pop-ups and tons of redirects .
Chititka : low CPM that starts to build up, but pop-up ads, fake links, download links to junk and spam/viruses.
smowtion : low cpm, lots of junk ads with fake links to downloads and trojans
Avantlinks : proved sales, but got no credit / income from them, so bad in my book.

I will be testing ADbrite, maybe bidvertiser when I feel persuaded to.

    You could probably find a bunch of offers on Clickbank that would be relevant to your site. Grab the banners and see what does best.

    Given your market you'd be better off doing CPA or researching sites to be an affiliate for.

    Well, your niche is quite controversial, no wonder adsense didn't accept it...
    Have you tried CPA or even selling ad space?
