    Right now I'm using Burst on one of my sites, but I'm thinking of switching over to Advertising.com...

    Anyone have any experience with the latter?

    I use Burst! for my advertising and Advertising.com for my defaults. I personally think these two are in different leagues. Burst! has many more advantages over Advertising.com.

    1. You can select which ads appear and which don't. Don't think you can with Advertising.com.

    2. You can get targeted campaigns in Burst!, and if you are lucky enough to get one, you can make serious money. Don't think you can with Advertising.com.

    3. You are able to use defaults in Burst!, not Advertising.com.

    Choice is pretty simple, IMO.

    I used to use advertising.com until about 2 months ago when they started showing too many defaults. At one point I had 50 clicks from showing a couple of thousand impressions (I forgot exactly) and I only earn 20 cents that day. For the whole month, it continued and I went ahead and took their code out. I contacted them various times and I never heard a whisper from them. My advice, DO NOT go with advertising.com unless you want to offer free advertising
    for them. I am not the only one disgrunted by Advertising.com. Click on the URL

    Glad to offer my thoughts... and regarding the targetted campaigns, don't get over-zealous when you see a bunch lined-up for your site. For November, I had a half dozen or more lined-up for this month, but NONE of them have come through yet.
