    Hi!

    My site(http://www.freewaregaming.com/) become listed in the Yahoo directory three days ago. I was really lucky to be included in their games/downloads directory.

    Before this I was getting about 200 impressions per day. Now this number has grown by about 7500% (true!) to 15000 impressions per day! My advice to all of you: Get listed in Yahoo.

    I was running Commission Junction banners on my site, but I now want to switch because they are not really making me any money.

    Therefore, I ask the readers of this forum: Do you have any advice on which ad agency I should join? Or perpaps you know about some game oriented affiliate program? I'd like to get a CPM of at least $2, but I understand that this may be difficult.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to your advice.

    I would highly recommend BURST! Media. I use them and get good CPM numbers through my sports site, so you should be able to get decent prices with your site.

    Oher people might recommend Advertising.com and Flycast, but I can say I've never used them to give you my opinion.

    Here's another Burst! user and I recommend them, too. Congrats on getting listing in Yahoo!. When I first got listed in them, they really increased my traffic from their directory, but now I mostly get traffic from their searches, not the directory.

    I have also heard good things about Burst. You may also want to consider fastclick.com They have been getting good feedback. They are fairly new and seem to be handling things well with reasonable rates. Currently, the effective CPM for me (a combination of CPM and CPC is around $0.60 with a 0.5% CTR) but I have a fairly low volume site. The best features are that you can select multiple default campaigns and select how frequently you want each shown, and they have excellent tracking statistics.
