    Any answer you get for this question will probably not be the best. Traffic and advertising sources are not something marketers want to give out freely, especially if they are being successful with it as the more competition the more watered down it will become. As well as prices going up

    Hey Tommy!

    If I were you, I'd get a list of blogs and forums that are relevant to the niche that you are aiming to promote for and then I would check the traffic by entering them in on Alexa to see their rankings.

    Whichever ones have the highest ratings according to traffic, I'd go with them but of course you still need to make sure that the sites are relevant so that it can be TARGETED traffic to what you're promoting.

    Hope that helps!

      I agree with you about relevant niche I should have the banner on.

      But you are sure Alexa is good tool for checking traffic?

  • I've got banners ads in both forums and blogs. My limited test results are I get more clicks from forums than blogs. Currently banner advertising on 5 niche blogs and 2 niche forums.

    Tommy,

    The nice thing about affiliate marketing online is that you will get to test all sorts of places to see what websites bring you the best traffic.

    Every place that you market online, you will want to test to see how many visitors you are getting.

    Everytime you post a banner, you must know your numbers from every single place.
